It may well be the closest we will ever come to the missing link between chimps and humans and the most important anthropological find ever.

In a series of studies released today by the journal Science, researchers have revealed a creature that took the first upright steps toward human beings and fundamentally changes the way we look at our earliest evolutionary ancestors.

The research brings into question the belief that our most distant ancestors descended from apes.

I understand what he's saying, but I suppose I always thought you could have said that. I don't think anyone ever thought we evolved from chimpanzees--just from a common ancestor that was similar to chimpanzees. And this find is about the size of chimpanzee, maybe a little bit bigger.

It's a little bit of semantics, I suppose.

Still, pretty interesting stuff.

Well, that settles it. We are all Monkey Men and our primorial ancestors, did live on the Planet Earth and it was the Planet of the apes.


So to finish my satirical retort, that leaves us with two possible, if not, probable conclusions:

I) Evolutionary standards clearly beyond a shadow of a doubt that humans and apes are similarily linked in both metaphysical and adaptation to one's environment, that being of course lended to us in Darwin's Origin of Species and then Descent of Man.

II) *** were the Simeans even thinking when they enslaved human beings in wooden and bamboo cages, I mean do they not know that these same humans who enslaved them, therefore leading to there eventual revolt and take-over, could Possibly happen again to them by the people their putting in cages as we all saw with cynical contempt.

Evolution, like karma, can be the most unreal ***** any person or group of individuals could ever face. What goes on comes around is an overused and sometimes inconsistent metaphor, but it can still hit someone in the *** more then merely passing it off.


And now that I've had my fun, this post can now return to its original, more focused sequenced programming.

Lawd knows we, as a species, still like to fling poo. We do it more with words now but the desire is the same.
