Human evolution is accelerating...

Just in time for the next round of bullshit about intelligent design comes word from scientists (people smarter than you and I) that human evolution is accelerating and that people all over the world are becoming more and more dissimilar to other folks.

All anyone had to do was look at Connecticut native and current President George Bush to know that was true. He's about as close genetically to normal humans as chimpanzees. Perhaps he's some kind of evolutionary dead end? Wait. I'm kind of off the point, aren't I? Damn, I really need to quit drinking during the day.

Apparently, some populations are experiencing genetic changes that are mostly related to diet and environment (Europeans are now better able to digest dairy as adults and Africans now have genetic resistance to malaria) far faster than previously thought, providing a real world, historically provable proof for the theory of evolution. It also proves that the political management at TEA is pretty dumb. Why? Because you can track the changes than date them in specific populations.

Which is something you can't do with intelligent design. That's would be a bit like trying to rationalize the decision make process used by the political leadership at TEA. It would drive you crazy, you'd ultimately fail and it's a rather foolish thing to bother with.

Even more startling, the evolution of chimpanzees has accelerated to the point where many of them can pronounce the word "nuclear".
