Mishpoche!

Posted Mon Jan 16, 2006, 19:10 PM by Tracy | |

We took a spur of the moment trip this weekend to San Diego. We spent all Saturday at the zoo where we saw both our Sephardic and Ashkenaz cousins. The highlight was the two-month old giraffe, cavorting for the crowd.

I had to restrain myself from arguing evolution with an ignorant stranger. It’s a bit of a shock to actually hear creationist talking points I’ve only read about it. The sheer obvious ignorance is astounding.

Which evolved first, male or female? How do you get a giraffe evolving from a zebra?

I kid you not, that’s the nonsense that came out of this guy’s mouth. It’s like asking how did you evolve from your cousin. I’ve heard Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus, but I’m pretty certain male and female are not separate species.

But I maintained control, though it was hard. How appropriate that I happened to be reading On Bullshit.
