Move over star-crossed lovers like Romeo and Juliet. A startling claim has been made about the origin of man by Eugene McCarthy a geneticist from the University of Georgia. Humans are the result of pigs and chimpanzees mating.
The geneticist argued in his thesis that humans share many characteristics with chimps that have already been documented, but that we also share a remarkable amount of traits with pigs. Characteristics such as hairless skin, large eyelashes, protruding noses and skin tissues and organs are similar in humans and pigs.
“What is this other animal that has all these traits?’ he asks rhetorically. "The answer is Sus scrofa, the ordinary pig.”
Of course, given this man works at the University of Georgia probably explains his theory of interspecies mating with farm animals. Just sayin…..
From McCarthy's Thesis:
For the last 150 years, we biologists have been defending a fortress built by Charles Darwin. We have spent our energies hurling back the assaults of the creationist infidels and shoring up a slowly crumbling foundation that once seemed based on the hard bedrock of direct observation. But an ocean of data, accumulating since 1859, has been slowly lapping away at the rotting stone beneath Darwin's castle, undermining its moldering walls, making it an ever more dangerous place to reside.
Thomas Henry Huxley
As Darwin's most eloquent proponent, T. H. Huxley, once said, "Every great truth begins as heresy and ends as superstition." In the case of evolutionary theory, Huxley appears to have been right. Many of the facts presented in the discussion of evolution on this website do indeed suggest that certain elements of Darwin's heresy can now best be interpreted as a kind of superstition. It was Huxley, too, who warned us not to "pretend that conclusions are certain which are not demonstrated or demonstrable." I will argue that certain important tenets of modern evolutionary theory actually do fall into this category.
I want to present the facts that compelled me to abandon my former ideas of how evolution occurs. As we shall see, a different account of the evolutionary process is far easier to defend on an evidentiary basis than is the one given by most biology texts. According to this alternative view, which I callstabilization theory, certain genetic processes known to disrupt the normal reproductive cycle are the typical source of new types of organisms (a variety of these stabilization processesare described in Section 4 of this website).
