Evolution Cartoons

For this roundup of cartoons I decided to try and stick to a theme, the theme was decided when I came across the first of the cartoons below. All of today's collection relate somehow to evolution, some even date from the 1920's, showing that evolution has essentially always been under attack by fundamentalists.


This one comes from a great site called Russells Teapot, as in Bertrand Russell's famous china teapot floating between Earth and Mars.


Click here for a slide show of classic cartoons printed in the Journal Evolution between 1927 and 1938.

It takes more faith now to believe in Evolution than Creationism. And by the way, why is it that evolution is called a theory (the Theory of Evolution) and is accepted as a fact? The Theory of Evolution itself has evolved more than any species crossovers that Darwin hypothosised about.

@ Anonymous: The Theory of Evolution is not accepted as fact; it just has more evidence than religion.

Evolution has no evidence!

I' m a fundamentalist- and proud of it!

Your right, evolution is just a theory, like the Theory of Relativity , and Theory of Plate tectonics, and all the other scientific theories.

Why can't fundamentalists see that evolution and christianity can coexist?

JESUS CHRIST!!
No pun intended ;)
I can't believe I am the first person to say this!
Theories are casual explanations of the laws of science. People use theories to explain how the laws, which are rooted in fact, work. (or often work with one another etc)

This does NOT mean that all theories are shaky and could fall apart at any time. Far from it.

No evidence!! hmmm fossils are what then? Frozen remains of animals are made by ray harry hausen? Not to mention the small evolutionary changes observed in nature studies today!!! Etc.. What rock have you been living under? Scientific theories do evolve unlike many religions due to the fact that they are constantly checked and tested. Many religions don’t do this and so we get people as thick as you lot! Although I am not saying its all bad there are good points to some religions of course like a good sense of well being – even if it is misguided! And you do need faith in something...

then explain the fossilized bones of early apes that progressively looked more and more like our own bones today, i believe that god created the big bang knowing that 1 microscopic organism would multiply and occupy the planets of the universe, adapting to its environment slowly evolving into multiple types of animals that will continue evolving until the universe comes to an end, or forever
