HELL, NO!

Two apes having a head-to-head:

"It's friggin' absurd!" one of them said,

"Eight million species inhabit this earth,

Balancing nature and proving their worth;

But look at those creatures that are called 'man':

Ruining our planet as fast as they can;

They've polluted our air and poisoned the seas;

Their revolting habits cause death by disease!

Some of them perish with nothing to eat;

While others toss food into bins on the street.

Because of his skin tone, they'll murder a brother,

Yet we know that one is the same as another!"

His fellow-ape frowned, "But why all this fuss?"

" 'cause those silly beings claim to descend from us!"

Hi David,

You're correct, I actually do not subscribe to the theory of evolution... not that it matters!

By the way, I enjoyed reading your biography.
