Decent Primate Evolution Primer Article
This is a decent primate evolution primer meant to answer the age old "If apes evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?" question.

RE: Decent Primate Evolution Primer Article
Because monkeys are good people.................

...

Seriously...................


Have you ever seen a monkey who stole your car, raped your wife, killed your kids and left a mess in your kitchen??????????????????

nope.........

Know why???

Cuz monkeys are good people.................

............................

Note to the devout --- if you find this explanation ludicrous -- I ask you to look to Genesis -- with talking snakes, men made out of clay, and women made out of men's ribs.........................


.......

And go kindly piss off..............

..........

Wink

.......................................

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Funny thing, english is one of the few languages that has a different word for both members of catarrhini. Most others would call them what is known as monkeys. Though I pretty much knew all of this, I enjoyed reading it. Thanks bro. Thumbsup

Thanks. The Chinese have different words for monkeys (猴, hou) and apes (猨, yuan); however, they are often used interchangeably in vernacular fiction.

I talked to a creationist nut case person who argued that humans weren't even animals or part of the animal kingdom. I'm serious. FacepalmFacepalmFacepalm

So I don't think there's much of a chance that they're going to get very far in that link before their brain shuts down. They simply don't trust scientists.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Not as bad as "we are not animals, we are mammals." They say this while ignoring the fact the only way to be a mammal is to be an animal.

I had a creationist tell me he could prove the Garden of Eden creation was true. He said we just had to count the ribs on a man, they would be one fewer on one side.

I believed that. Then I turned 6 and read a book.

RE: Decent Primate Evolution Primer Article
I had a guy ask me that exact question some years ago. He was considerably older than me, and considered himself very intelligent. I was startled because I had never come across it before and thought he might be pulling my leg. He wasn't.

I did my best to explain to him how evolution works. Don't know if I got through. Unsure
