Are You F’in Kidding Me?

I love the opening of this new article in The Economic Times:

In his latest book, The Greatest Show on Earth, Richard Dawkins refers to an incident in the life of British evolutionary biologist J.B.S. Haldane when he was approached by a lady who didn’t believe in evolution.

Apparently, she said something like “Even with billions of years of evolution available how is it possible to go from a single cell to a complicated human body with trillions of cells organised into bones, muscles and nerves, a ceaselessly pumping heart, miles of blood vessels and a brain capable of talking, thinking and feeling?”

To this Haldane is supposed to have replied: “But madam, you did it yourself. And it only took you nine months.”

Yep, the fetus does EVERYTHING and ALL by ITSELF!

"Nothin' to see here folks." "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain."

If Dawkins honestly believes the miracle of life is evidence FOR evolution, then I'm willing to pitch in a few bucks so he can get remedial education.
