Darwin reincarnates, tantrum ensues

Did Darwin reincarnate as a monkey only to kill a priest in India? Richard Caldwell investigates.



Charles Darwin, the well-noted naturalist whose 1859 tome On the Origin of the Species paved the way for Evolutionists and Creationists to go all Sharks versus Jets, has evidently been reincarnated into an adorable little gibbon.

Or some-such.


DEVOUT MAN OF SCIENCE
Being a devout man of the sciences, undergoing the experience of having religious belief verified to such howling extent, the old man abruptly took out his frustrations on the nearest man-of-the-cloth around, a priest named Munna Mishra somewhere in the Patna villages of India.

Or perhaps we are interpreting this article from Lena Reynolds all wrong.

Suffice to say a monkey has stoned a priest to death, inadvertently reigniting the Evolutionary War.

Our bitcoins are on Christopher Hitchens next finding reincarnation as a duck-billed platypus, with a likely Disney contract to follow.


FIGHTING DIRTY
Not to make light of Mishra's end, but no matter if he was a Christian priest or a Hindu priest, he should have known how scientists are willing to fight dirty.

Really, the whole Creation versus Evolution debate has already brought the world many an inflammatory YouTube video, as well as the Creation Museum in Kentucky (one of my cousins worked there as an interior decorator, because Kentucky).

This has all gone on quite long enough.

The obvious conclusion would be to ban the stones.

They are far too old to be touring anyway.
