What's It To Ya Two-Eyes?!

The more arguments I hear from creationists, the more bizarre their world seems.

This cartoon relates to an (apparently serious) argument that bilateral symmetry disproves evolution. You see, if evolution really happens, each species would begin as a more simple (non-bilaterally symmetrical) type and evolve towards the more fit variety. Thus all of the two-eyed animals we currently know should have cyclopic counterparts in the fossil record. Or so the specious (heh heh) argument goes.

Not strange enough for you? Well, I found this cartoon on the Lost World Museum website. That institution is apparently dedicated to debunking evolutionary theory through a combination of cartoons and a dead kitten.

Check out Pharyngula for all the juicy details.
