The Descent of Man

In the past, unscrupulous fundies have exploited the gaps in the fossil record to attack macroevolution.

But thanks to the cutting edge science of comparative genetics, the theory of common descent has been put on an unshakable foundation.

Genetic evidence now supplies unmistakable evidence that the first hominid was a banana:

"Robert May is a UK Chief Scientist. In New Scientist magazine (July 1, 2000)on page 5 he stated, 'We share half our genes with the banana'."

The point at which early man forked off from the other primates is known in the paleoanthropological literature as the Banana Split, which took place sometime between the Pliocene and Maraschino epochs.

    There is no evidence for evolution that we cannot dismiss.

    Do you have another string on your banjo? You keep plunking this one and the tune is getting lame....

  3. Steve,

    We appreciate the effort it takes to peel away the error of macroevolution. Soon the truth will be plantain to see. Thanks a bunch!
