Origin of Species

Evolution of the human species

I’ve been spending a great deal of time lately thinking about anti-intellectualism in all its various forms, after I read a conversation thread about evolution on a different forum in which one poster summed up the “arguments” (if they could be called that) in the creationist crowd by saying something along the lines of “Evolution is just another way that evil scientists try to rob humanity of its specialness.”

That’s a telling idea, and its something I’ve talked about before, but it’s been pressing in on my consciousness again these days. I don’t really have time to write another in-depth post at the moment, but it was fun putting this pic together. 🙂
