Rare Photo of Dude That Shows Up With Three Dozen Friends Every Time Someone Posts About Feminism

Pretty much
This isn’t the picture. The actual picture has a bunch of penises on it.

A friend of mine recently pointed me to an old PZ Myers post featuring the lovely if slightly NSFW picture below, which Myers had found on what seems to be a completely serious creationist site.

From
From the “Missing Univverse Museum”

This is supposed to be some sort of proof that evolution is a lie, because if there really were such a thing as vestigial organs, the male of our species would be covered in vestigial penises (and have a thigh gap to die for).

I’m pretty sure there’s a logical fallacy there. But I think this is a useful graphic; it’s just mislabeled. I’ve corrected the captions below.

There. Now it's fixed.

First, I notice they don’t label the eyes replacing the nipples on evolution man because while I’m not sure what you’d do with them, they certainly wouldn’t be pointless or senseless. As a side note, I personally would love retractable eye stalks, which would unarguably be very sensible and mighty useful.

Second, the odd formation of the modesty leaves (a lovely mix of autumn foliage btw) on creation man makes me wonder how exactly his genitals are shaped. They seem wider than most, extending out to the hip bone. And why don’t they cover up evolution man’s spare twelve penises? So many questions…

Alan, the appendix has been found to house extra antibodies to reinforce the immune system. Now, they don’t recommend keeping a rupturing appendix in order to still have that extra boost of antibodies, but it’s good to know the organ isn’t useless.

I heard it might be canceled. D:

Hey, LBT, how are you? Get settled into your new digs okay?

@kirbywarp:

“chance against an individual specie”

… they don’t actually think the singular of “species” is “specie,” do they?

(They probably think the plural of “evidence” is “evidences,” that’s common in creationists, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.)

@Falconer

Well, maybe some of the overlap with some of those evolution deniers who think coins make babies and stuff?

So where’s evolution woman? Or was a woman covered in additional breasts and vulvas deemed potentially too erotic for the creation museum? And why do both creation man and evolution man lack body hair? If you’re going to show creation man, don’t lie about what he naturally looks like. I’m also getting from this that the man god created in his image was a white man, but I guess that’s to be expected with white man being the cultural default setting.

@ Reeve

Yeah, there was a Radio 4 documentary a while back that went into that. Apparently this reserve can come into play after someone had had , say antibiotics, that have killed off all the gut fauna.

Actually the documentary was pretty fascinating in a weird way. I never knew before that that there’s such a thing as a stool transplant (seriously). Also, all those posh yogurt drinks contain a culture that was originally cultivated from the poo of a German soldier.

Wonder why they don’t put that on the label?

Wny does Evolution Man have such a wide stance? Is he supposed to be Larry Craig?

All those arrows labeled “vestigial” and “useless” should be pointing at the skull of Creationist Man.

“Also, all those posh yogurt drinks contain a culture that was originally cultivated from the poo of a German soldier.”

WHY’D YOU HAVE TO RUIN YOGHURT FOR ME ALAN? WHY?

I don’t care about energy drinks though, I hate the things.

Ha, sorry. It was quite fascinating though. They spotted one chap who, despite numerous outbreaks of dysentery and the like affecting all his colleagues, never got ill. So basically they got him to, er ‘produce’ as much ‘material’ as possible and harvested the bacteria that lived in there.

Another fascinating fact from that programme was that up to 90% of your ‘output’ is actually made up of gut bacteria. Gotta love BBC Radio 4!

@Alan Robertshaw:

Not quite. Apparently only about 30% of the solid matter in your poop is dead bacteria. Which is honestly still pretty impressive… There must be lots of bacteria to lose if every poop tosses out… (100 to 250g)*.25*.3 = 7.5 to 18.75g of them.

I’d been wondering, off and on, why it’s called Red Bull. Still no clue about the wings.

@buttercup, I went and read the thing and apparently the idea is, vestigial man is just chockablock full of useless organs the body didn’t get rid of.

@ kirbywarp

Thanks for that. I do actually find that quite fascinating. We’ve really raised the tone of discussions round here haven’t we? 🙂

@Alan:

Well, this blog does normally document the metaphorical poop of world, talking about actual poop is at worst a side-step. 😛

Kirbywarp – actual poop is a big step up from the metaphorical poop that we usually discuss.

@isidore Ah, thanks for clearing that up (and for making the supreme sacrifice of actually reading the site). Because being stuffed with useless organs and barely able to waddle around the savanna wouldn’t at all make early man a sitting duck for predators.

Since we’re on the topic of poo, I bet Evolution Man would have very wide poos. And rightfully complain about what a chore it is to keep his ass wiped. I’d give him a free pass on that one.

Tonsils and our appendix DO have uses. The appendix deals with grass in the diet. We’re careful not to eat grass nowadays…so the organ goes dormant. It’s more likely to cause trouble because it has no work to do. Like a teenager.

Tonsils are an effective part of the immune system (removing them removes symptoms of infection but does not improve health or lessen infections.)

I got nothing on wisdom teeth.

@cairech

Wisdom teeth are leftovers from when our jaws were longer.
