I Didn’t Come from No Monkey!

The Washington Post reported,

Scientists said… that they had determined the precise order of the 3 billion bits of genetic code that carry the instructions for making a chimpanzee, mankind’s closest cousin.

The fresh unraveling of chimpanzee DNA allows an unprecedented gene-to-gene comparison with the human genome, mapped in 2001, and makes plain the evolutionary processes through which chimps and humans arose from a common ancestor about 6 million years ago.

Ha ha! “Evolutionary processes…” “Chimps and humans…” “common ancestor…” I didn’t come from no monkey!

Oh, wait. I subscribe to the theory of evolution. I have just become so accustomed to hearing laughable alternative theories of the origin of species advanced by a bunch of nuts that I have begun to buy into their questioning of evolution.

“[S]everal scientists said the genome study offered elegant confirmation of Darwin’s vision of evolution.” “‘I can’t imagine Darwin hoping for a stronger confirmation of his ideas,’ said Robert H. Waterston, who led the Washington University team.”

  • Evolution is wrong. So is the current theory of "intelligent design."

    You need to read and embrace the truth, that we were created by a flying spaghetti monster. The link is on my site, I don't know how to put it on a comments post.

  • Yeah, I read about the Flying Spaghetti Monster, http://venganza.org/. Bobby Henderson wrote this letter to the Kansas School Board, asking for “equal time” for his religion. There was a NYTimes article about it, also, http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/29/arts/design/29mons.html.

  • They've unlocked the genetic code?! What have you done now, science?! Soon there will be chimpanzees running amok. They'll take over the planet. If the Jesus Christians hear about this they'll have a field day. We never should've questioned them.

  • It's like the plot from a science fiction movie!
