Snowjob











Bizarro is brought to you today by Marketing.

Whenever I've done satires of the famous "ascent of man" illustration in the past, I've gotten comments or emails from creationists. I'm guessing this one won't elicit the same response, but one never knows. This cartoon isn't about religion or science, of course, it's just a humorous take on a famous graphic.

If you click on the drawing, it will open a larger image of it and you'll be able to see that the first stage is a snowflake. Not that it matters.

Until next time...Enjoy your weekend and tell them that I said you could.

I'm pretty sure you mean elicit, not illicit.

For a snowman to be illicit, it would need to be built of a different kind of snow.

And while it would be nice to make creationist ranting illegal...

Well, enough pedantism.

Good comic, I thought it was funny. But I have to comment as an atheist that I don't like the ascent of man images in general because that is not how evolution works, and it implies that evolution is teleological, when it's not, it's random.

1st comment: Love it! LOL

My guess is that creationists will like this one--because it suggests that the subject was made, not evolved. I am sure they'll find intelligent-design-ish logic at work here.

Given that it's now known that we share a common ancestor with apes instead of directly evolving from them, why do they still use the "Ascent of Man" graph? Wouldn't it be more accurate to have us, along with the other primates, branching off from the common ancestor?
