The study of evolution is filled with controversies. Some scientists believe that mankind continues to move forward and this will always be the case, while others believe humanity has reached its final stage of evolution, and is now currently in an era of stagnation.
Because if natural selection, as proposed by Darwin, is the main mechanism of evolution – there may be other things, but it does look as though that’s the case – then we’ve stopped natural selection.
We stopped natural selection as soon as we started being able to rear 95–99 per cent of our babies that are born.
We are the only species to have put a halt to natural selection, of its own free will, as it were.
But John Hawks, an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, disagrees:
We have evolved in our recent past, and we will continue to do so as long as we are around. If we take the more than seven million years since humans split from our last common ancestor with chimpanzees and convert it to a 24-hour day, the past 30,000 years would take about a mere six minutes. Yet much has unfolded during this last chapter of our evolution: vast migrations into new environments, dramatic changes in diet and a more than 1,000-fold increase in global population. All those new people added many unique mutations to the total population. The result was a pulse of rapid natural selection. Human evolution is not stopping. If anything, it is accelerating.
Thinking about evolution — whether it’s accelerating or stagnating — is both fascinating and mind boggling at the same time. But the controversy of it has led modern illustrators to present the subject at hand in a much different way than arguments on paper or in person. In fact, these illustrators are putting their imaginations to work to show these two opposing scientific assumptions in a satirical way, and honestly, it’s just as thought-provoking as the lengthy arguments on either side of the scientific table.
The following images will make you wonder: Have we gotten better or worse? Have we advanced technology, or has it simply overtaken us? Think of sitting down with your grandparents, and how your discussions on the world, and where we are, and who we are, differ. Many of us might find ourselves in a common argument. Grandparents believe younger generations have become mere robots, forgetting what hard work looks like and what the outdoors smells like. The younger generations may believe we have created so many advancements to better the world we live in that it’s a fair tradeoff. Of course, this is merely an example and cannot speak for everyone, but it’s interesting to see how generations apart can vary on outlook, such as scientists do.
Take a look at the following 15 illustrations and decide for yourself where you stand on the topic, or even just see what the images provoke your brain to think!

Just for the fun of it, let’s say that Tubularsock is going to sell you this car:
A 2017 ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM CONVERTIBLE
And lets say the cost of this PHANTOM was just a little over $430,000.00 and that is with an AM/FM Stereo and an electric ashtray! Oh sure, and automatic windshield wipers.
But if you buy today and pay CASH Tubularsock would sell it TO YOU for $200,000.00!
And you are directed to wire the cash to Tubularsock World Wide Auto Sales Ltd. in Panama.
Simple as that.
And upon receipt and verification of your payment your new ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM CONVERTIBLE will be delivered to your door at no charge.
But then you remember what your father always told you: “Read the fine print!”
So would you go for the deal?
Well that is EXACTLY the deal the United States is offering YOU when it comes to information about this inflated Russian hacking lie!
At the very TOP of the National Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Center – NCCIC and Federal Bureau of Investigation is this disclaimer:
Which is to say that THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INFORMATION PROVIDED!
Have any question come to your mind?
Perhaps, Tubularsock’s just sayin’ , if the NCCIC and the FBI are putting out this information about the Russian hacking, THEN just who is responsible for the validity of the information? They say: IT’S NOT US!
But really, in this case it is just an attempt to mislead YOU. It is not a lie, it just doesn’t fit the reality of the situation. It is a cleaver misdirection that looks like there is real information being provided but IT DOESN’T PROVE JACK SHIT!
And THAT is one major problem with the United States of America today …………… NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING!
CONGRESS VOTES TO GIVE THE PRESIDENT THE ABILITY TO KILL PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD ….. THEY’RE NOT RESPONSIBLE.
A BANK IS DRIVEN INTO BANKRUPTCY AND HAS TO BE BAILED OUT BY “WE THE CITIZENS” ……… THE CEO IS NOT RESPONSIBLE.
BIG PHARMA KILLS HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WITH THEIR PILLS ……. THEY’RE NOT RESPONSIBLE.
THE COPS OPENLY SHOOT PEOPLE IN THE BACK BECAUSE THE COP “FEELS” THREATENED ……….. NOT RESPONSIBLE.
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY MACHINE CHEAT AND RIG HILLARY’S NOMINATION FOR THE PARTY BUT SHE AND HER CORRUPT CHEATING BAND OF CONSPIRATORS ARE NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE ……. the focus is shifted to the Russians for Christ sake!
NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE, well except for the guy who’s selling cigarettes on the street without a permit. He’s responsible for his CRIME! So much so, that the cops kill him after breaking the police departments own rules. But those cops aren’t held responsible for their own cop rules!
AND NOW TRUMP LIES AND LIES AND LIES AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT’S AN ISSUE?
(NaturalNews) (SATIRE – This weekend satire piece is for entertainment purposes only and references mature themes. If you are offended, go scream for your mommy…)
Natural News can now confirm that it wasn’t the Russians who stole the election for Donald Trump… it was aliens from planet Cockamamie in the Libtard Nebula, according to CNN sources that have chosen to remain anonymous because they also imagine they work for the CIA.
According to these sources, planet Cockamamie suffered a devastating population collapse due to economic restrictions thrust upon them by the galactic climate change cultists known as “AlGorians.” Following a mass starvation catastrophe caused by the Cockamamie Senate banning fossil fuels without having any energy replacement ready, Cockamamians found themselves needing to repopulate their planet with fresh organic specimens harvested from across the cosmos.
Hence their trip to Earth, a planet that was once believed to also suffer from mass starvation until televised signals of Michael Moore were captured and analyzed by Cockamamian scientists. Suddenly, Earth was heralded by distant civilizations as a “grand cosmic buffet” of processed food calories and incredibly disconnected leftist who seemed to already be living on another planet anyway.
California, in particular, was chosen as the first landing site because the state’s massive “Safe Space” sign can be observed from high orbit, and the aliens thought it was an invitation to freely engage in “open borders” cattle probing or anal mutilations… or perhaps the other way around.
Thus, shortly before Election Day, large metallic dildo-shaped craft shimmering with LGBTQ rainbow light displays were observed hovering over San Francisco… or at least that’s what the warehouse cult rave party survivors tweeted. According to reports, the dildo-shaped UFOs targeted high-density apartment complexes to ensure the harvesting of a high percentage of liberals who might feel more at home on planet Cockamamie, whose policies almost exactly parallel those of San Francisco, where homeless people are openly allowed to defecate on the sidewalks but never allowed to accept homemade food from gracious citizens due to the city-wide “food safety crackdown.”
Suddenly the dildo craft sprang into action. In a mesmerizing flash, millions of Californicators were beamed up to the dildo UFOs, where they were efficiently subjected to a battery of mental and physical tests. In one relentless test, gender-fluid grey humanoids (“CockaTransaMamians”) used oral, nasal and anal voltage stimulators to determine the biological resiliency of human subjects. To the shock of the greys, some San Franciscan captives actually enjoyed the experience and begged for more. Astonished, the CockaTransaMamians ejected them from captivity and teleported them into Starbucks coffee shops to serve as hyperstimulated faggoty baristas who immediately began berating customers with tales of “sexual escapades with 50 shades of Greys.”
Other humans were found to be too stupid to survive on planet Cockamamie, so they were dropped off at the county courthouse and encouraged to run for political office or even lead the DNC.
Deeper in the bowels of the alien mothership, left-wing commentator Keith Olbermann was observed being apparently molested by CockaTransaMamians who tried to apply a brain scan helmet to his butt cheeks while milking his nose for DNA samples. It turns out they couldn’t tell Keith’s head from his ass and had the guy completely upside down.
After realizing their error, they tried to make amends by installing a “Russian conspiracy” program into his feeble brain and using a Men-In-Black flashy thingy to wipe his memory… which also happened to make him an even better news teleprompter reader for Earth’s propaganda fake news networks. Now, as you can observe on his broadcasts, Keith Olbermann fully realizes he was violated but can’t remember why… but he’s certain the Russians did something nefarious to his rectum and he thinks it might have been a poo coup.
Meanwhile, all the captive space-faring Democrats tried to wage a “soft coup” takeover of the Cockamamian mothership, first by demanding a democratic vote on who should be running the ship, then rigging the vote by recirculating people who already voted to the back of the voting line to make sure they could vote a second time. But they got caught by the greys, whom the Democrats quickly condemned as “illegal aliens,” much to the amusement of those on board who were actual aliens. The Democrats got overruled, at which point they all started to scream for mommy and began leaping out of the docking bays, mistaking the “WARNING: SPACE” signs for “SAFE SPACE” indicators.
It turns out that in outer space, no one can hear you scream “WAAAAAHHH!”
As the Democrats remaining inside the dildo alien UFO screamed and sobbed and demanded hot cocoa to soothe their trauma, the greys began to second guess the wisdom in transplanting such pathetic creatures who were obviously incapable of survival in a dynamic universe. Even the Cockamamie education system on planet Cockamamie might be too advanced for these failed specimens, the greys quickly realized, so they decided to jettison the crybabies in Venezuela, where they are now eating out of garbage dumpsters and enjoying their “equality” under a failed left-wing state where everybody is equally miserable, thus solving the “inequality” problem once and for all.
Thanks to the missing Democrats, Donald Trump was elected President. As his first official intergalactic act, he opened a negotiation with the Cockamamians to ask them the most important question to help Make America Great Again: “How many more Democrats can you please remove from Earth on your next harvesting run?”
Their answer? “Hell no! We’ll go somewhere else.”
And that, my friends, is how Donald J. Trump saved Christmas from intergalactic aliens.
Goodbye Obama! Songwriter Dana Kamide produced this music and video and performs vocals on this wonderful, hilarious Christmas song parody which says it all! – – Based on the song Andy Williams made popular in the 60’s… This version also parodies the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” When George Baily begs God (through his guardian angel Clarence) to let him live again… This time he begs God to help Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” Hillary makes an appearance as the Abominable Snowman in the end… Singer, songwriter and Entertainer Dana Kamide wrote the lyrics and performed the lead vocals and produced the video. Democrats got Shellacked in last 3 elections. Yet Obama and the media still trying to make up stories why Donald Trump was elected instead of admit that for the last 8-10 years their policies have FAILED AMERICA!
Vladimir Putin President of Russia Moscow 28 November 2016
Dear President Putin,
Now that CIA agent Craig Timberg posing as a Washington Post reporter has blown my cover and exposed me as a Russian agent, I was wondering if I might ask you for a Russian passport and a bit of diplomatic cover, perhaps assistant press officer at the Russian embassy in Washington, until I can get out of the country. I saw that you gave a passport to Steven Seagal, so I am hopeful that being a Russian agent is as important as teaching martial arts to Russians.
I don’t know what the pay scale for Russian agents is, but whatever I have coming to me please deposit in a Russian bank. The Swiss banks are no longer useful as the Swiss government allowed Washington to write its banking laws. Perhaps also you could line me up with a publisher for my memoirs—“My Life As A Putin Stooge.”
We need to get on with this ASAP as the Washington Post has the FBI on my tail. They will be very angry at me for deceiving them all those years when I held top secret and higher security clearances while I was a Russian agent. Any day now the Washington Post might discover that my fellow KGB agent Ronald Reagan and I cut taxes on the rich in order to make capitalism so oppressive that the American people would rise up and overthrow it. Boy did we fool the left-wing!
I regret that the Washington Post got wise to me being a Russian agent, but it wasn’t my fault. I think the leak came from one of those Atlanticist Integrationists you are stuck with in your government. Better check up on it as 200 of the Russian financed websites have already been exposed.
Better have someone bring me the passport and diplomatic appointment. I would be nabbed by TSA if I fly to Washington to collect the documents. A diplomatic appointment is better than asylum, because Washington, like the old Soviet Union, doesn’t recognize political asylum. Just ask Julian Assange.
Don’t let the Atlanticist Integrationists convince you that my exposure as a Russian agent is just a CIA ruse to plant an agent on you. My criticism of Washington’s policy of raising tensions between nuclear powers and support of your policy of reducing tensions is not spy cover. I really do prefer that the world not be blown up in thermo-nuclear war. This is a suspect view in the US, but I hope it is an acceptable one in Russia.
Looking forward to that passport.

I never liked this woman so it’s easy to glow at her downfall. So let’s just assume she is a zombie-like creature that worships Satan and drinks the blood of young virgins. And that’s possibly not far from the truth. Go to hell Hilarious Windbag, as we are sick of your lies and bullshit! I believe this monster is far worse than the Trumpster.
Trumpf’s supporters might be a bunch of doofuses, not, but Hillary Clinton’s supporters are a bunch of deluded idiots.
