A planet where apes evolved from men?

He had it right!

He had it right!

This story was reported in our local paper under a headline reading “Apes may have descended from men.”  Dr Zaius wouldn’t have been surprised- that’s what he said all along.  More precisely, Dr Zaius wouldn’t have been surprised by the headline; the actual story doesn’t have much relationship to that claim.  Instead, it reports a recent find which indicates that the last common ancestor of humans and apes was less ape-like than had previously been thought.  But who are you going to believe, the fossil record or the Sacred Scrolls

    I watched a program about how modern humans are the result of extra-terrestrials manipulating the culture and genetics of ancient humans. It’s gaining credibility.

    Apparently I was mistaken- it was Bright Eyes (aka Colonel Taylor, played by Charlton Heston) who argued that the apes on Dr Zaius’ world were descended from men. Dr Zaius believed in the permanence of species.
