Creationists are always arguing that if Evolution is true then we should see cats giving birth to frogs or “transitional” forms such as the legendary Croc-o-duck. The fact that such things would actually disprove the theory only illustrates how they haven’t a clue what the theory actually says, but that doesn’t stop them from demanding to see such creatures.
So perhaps the news of an apparent Monk-o-Piglet recently born in China will get them to shut up:
“It’s hideous. No one will be willing to buy it, and it scares the family to even look at it!” Feng told Oriental Today.
He says the piglet looks just like a monkey, with two thin lips, a small nose and two big eyes. Its rear legs are also much longer than its forelegs, causing it to jump instead of walk.
Feng’s wife said the monkey-faced piglet was one of five newborns of a sow which the family had raised for nine years.
“My God, it was so scary. I didn’t known what it was. I was really frightened,” she said.
“But our son likes to play with it, and he stopped us from getting rid of it. He even feeds it milk.”
So what does this thing look like? It’s kinda cute in a horror movie way:
Somehow I doubt this’ll get the Creationists to stop yapping about how there’s no transitional forms though it should. It’s exactly the sort of thing they’ve been clamoring for.
