Misuse of evolution by creationists: hardwired to believe in God? »« Mmm, his noodliness looks yummy

Darwin finds the best evidence against his theory

Like always, click for larger.Disclaimer: This is not supposed to mean evolutionary biologists are hostile to any contrary evidence. It’s a joke. I hate to have to include this, but I know if I don’t this comic will get picked up by some creationist site as proof that we’re all dogmatic Darwinists. Actually, that’s probably going to happen anyway, so oh well.

    Mike: That depends on what you want him to evolve into. If you want him to evolve into Darwinzard, you use the Fire Crystal. If you want him to evolve into Electrodarwin, you use the Shock Crystal.Fuck, it’s been too long since I played a Pokemon game, I don’t think that makes much pokesense at all. Pika!

    … Pokémon … overload … regressing into … early childhood … aaaaaargh … *zzzt*Other than that, fine comic as usual, Jen. Though I didn’t know Darwin to be so vain about his theory as to knock someone out should he disprove it … ;-)

    The thing is, though, there’s nothing in Natural Selection to disallow metamorphosis. It happens enough in the natural world as is. Thinking back to my primary school days, I remember a pokémon with explicit larval, pupal, and adult stages… Lemme think… Caterpie, Metapod, Butterfree.Ok, I cheated, I had to check the list on Wikipedia.I’ll admit, I’m not sure how the whole phantasmagorical, instant, electrical metamorphosis would have evolved, but I’d be pretty fun to theorize.

    Well, the problem is not that the prof disproves Natural Selection – it’s that he’s so damn smug about it.He deserves the walloping.

    Oak deserved it for being so smug about sleeping with Ash’s mom.And surprisingly, Veritas, that made a disturbing amount of sense. It only makes sense that Darwin would evolve like an Eevee.< editionwars> Also, there are only 151 pokemon. < /editionwars>

    @Andre: You mean 152. Everybody always forgets Missingno.Also, the caption for the last panel would be better as “It’s super effective!”

    YES! This is the best blog ever! =3 Now show Jessie and James battling Jessie James! …I was going to make a joke about another real-world scientist, but I couldn’t think of one that was directly related to biology off the top of my head. ;w; My nerd-fu is weak.
