Rush Limbaugh, whose science degree I assume is lost in the mail somewhere, announced on his show yesterday that evolution must be false because Harambe, the gorilla who was killed at the Cincinnati Zoo over the weekend, never turned into a human.
… 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?
That sort of Ken Ham logic can be debunked by a grade-schooler: Apes didn’t “become” humans. We evolved from a common ancestor. (Similarly, Protestants “evolved” from Catholics, but there are still Catholics.)
Limbaugh would know that if he ever did any research, but that’s beneath him. Why read a book when your ass has all the answers you’ll ever need?
