It's been a joy, to be a part of the show, Compounds Not Required: 29,…
Today, I saw a Facebook status from my friends over at The Nation’s Newspaper asking, “Should we teach evolution in schools?” I was flabbergasted at the mere question. Really? Really?! Well, you can imagine the write-ins after that. Most angrily pointing out the obvious, yes with a bit more fervor and with well-sentenced arguments addressing the absurdity of the question. I stayed out of it. It’s no wonder that people don’t trust the media. The media doesn’t even trust itself to state obvious. It’s all about he said, she said: let the reader make up their own mind. It’s bad enough that politics has been hijacked from the media’s journalistic glare by this very process but science? Really? Really?! I hope this is passing condition of the Nation at large, like temporary insanity. Sadly I don’t think it is. Well at least for a while. The pendulum will swing back. It always does. But really people, this has gone on long enough.
Today’s drawing is a little abstract ode to science and evolution. We have a salamander, amoebas, a tad pole and fish. Unfortunately the room simply wasn’t there for the pterodactyl I had hoped to place up top. It was however, a joy to draw. I guess they all are but this one was especially fun.
And for even more fun I’ve added this gem from They Might Be Giants :
