About Me

Dr Miles on the Origin of Man

Dr Miles, or the front representing him, dismissed natural selection in this essay.  The reasoning meandered incoherently;  the author's use of the Heidelberg Jaw was clumsy and awkward.  The writer lacked awareness of the idea of a common ancestor among simians.

Why aren't monkeys turning into people now?

A joke from another page of this strange almanac:

"Papa, did Edison make the first talking machine?"
"No, son, the Lord made the first talking machine, but Edison made the first one that could be shut off at will."
