“Glenn Beck and a monkey”
TPM has a great post (and the above separated-at-birth photos) on Beck’s latest anti-science rant. Evolution, as you know, was discredited by the Piltdown Man hoax, and “It’s like global warming.” This clip from his radio show is evidence that perhaps he’s right, at least in his case — evolution is no longer operative, and we are regressing:
TPM quotes Beck:
“I don’t think we came from monkeys. I think that’s ridiculous. I haven’t seen a half-monkey, half-person yet.”"If I get to the other side and God’s like, ‘You know what, yep, you were a monkey once,’ I’ll be shocked, but I’ll be cool with it,” he said.
“They have to make you care,” Beck continued. “They have to force it down your throat. When anybody has to force it — it’s a problem. You didn’t have to force that the world was round. Truth is truth.”
Et tu Christopher Columbus?
Remember, Beck is the guy who told William Shatner, “I think there are too many stupid people.”
