Photo: Smithsonian Early Human History

Since the National Museum of Natural History is all about science, there was quite a notable section about human evolution along with our ape kin. I imagine a lot of Christian-schools that tour the Museum probably run past this section with their eyes closed and their index fingers in their ears. I do like how real museums of science don't care at all about offending the tears of fundamentalists. Now only if we could get public schools to ignore them completely.

That kind of stuff always intrigued me. I think it's really interesting to read about.

Some people don't like facts!
I'm a Catholic and I believe we evolved from APES.

You only have to see, listen and cringe when Turnip Top appears
and this theory is verified!!!

I am never gonna believe we evolved from Apes...good grief !!

Hi, Adam...hope you and your cute Daisy are doing good. I am beginning to climb out of my black hole that I fell in when Bill passed's been a year now and tho I will never be the same again, I can get thru days without falling totally apart. Oh, I still have those days that I can't function very well but they are fewer now.

Actually, the theory isn't really that humans evolved from apes, but that apes and humans have a common (and most likely extinct) ancestor.

Adam said...

an extinct ape, but we are apes. We are part of the Great Ape family.
