Proving the Peter Principle is more relevant than ever, and that we are ever closer to reaching idiocracy levels of stupid, Rush Limbaugh sunk even deeper into the abyss of ignorance. The most impotent man in America announced on his show (he still has one) that evolution must be false Harambe, the gorilla who was killed at the Cincinnati Zoo over the weekend, never turned into a human.
The blustery blob of buffoonery lambasted claims that humans are descended from apes, a theory that is so widely supported by scientists that it’s really no longer a theory.
Here were some of the noted zoologist’s penetrating insights:
A lot of people think that all of us used to be apes. Don’t doubt me on this. A lot of people think that all of us used to be gorillas. And they’re looking for the missing link out there. The evolution crowd. They think we were originally apes. I’ve always — if we were the original apes, then how come Harambe is still an ape, and how come he didn’t become one of us?
Give this man more money and a Nobel prize! While it’s nothing short of amazing that a neandertal has his own radio show, Rush is foolishly still using a most infantile anti-evolution argument that’s been debunked a million times over. Scientific American does a wonderful job at thoroughly discrediting this creationist counterpoint.
