Evolution Denied

Cautionary note to contrarian lefties; spend too long in bed with the conservative right and your grip on science will slip. From a short rant by Graham at Harry's:
I reckon that some of the slimey boneless creatures currently infesting the British left evolved from amphibians myself.
Please correct me if I'm wrong but didn't we all....?

Good call; very good call.

Yeah. I'll second that... and add that it's a little surprising that snakes have had any great impact on primate evolution, both being quite young in evolutionary terms.

Still, apparently cane toads are evolving pretty quick.

There have been significant advances in cane toad evolution since the libs have got into power.

I leave you to ponder that thought...

The slimy boneless creatures are not merely infesting the left - they are the left.

Leftism is a sickness of the mind which intellectual fashionistas proudly display, rather like the way poseurs of an earlier generation thought consumption romantic.

Worse, we're descended from amphibians!!

Isn't consumption romantic? I mean, Baz Luhrmann, Nicole Kidman... Gah? *cough cough*

It's even worse - they're all descended from prokaryotes!
