Monkey See

monkey see monkey due We humans are very fortunate to be able to look around at our world and observe the parade of species that have, as we have since learned, sprung from common antecedents. It is our great luck that we can actually see our "primitive" evolutionary relatives chasing each other around trees in African forests. These apes are so similar to us, in fact, that modern science often conducts cruel experiments upon them in order to perfect the ideal beauty cream, for example.

Now let's suppose that all of the great apes had gone extinct long before mankind reached the Age of Reason. I wonder, then, if the theory of evolution would have been posited as early as it was. Yes, Darwin based his research on finches, among other relatively fast-breeding animals, but it was his personal experience with a chimpanzee that deepened his resolve to find the key to our genetic connection.

Science is lucky that way sometimes.

Skeptical roach: Look, we've had the same basic body structure for over 350 million years. How can you be so certain about the existence of evolution?

Shoe squashes him.

Other roach: Call it a hunch.
