Story Spotlight

At the railway station in India's northern city of Kanpur, a monkey was seriously electrocuted after stepping on a live wire. The incident would have surely ended on a gruesome fate for the little primate, if it wasn't for one of his furry friends, who came to the rescue:

It is incidents like these which throw a monkey wrench (pardon the pun) on the whole 'selfish gene' notion promoted by neo-Darwinists like Dawkins and the like, who keep insisting that Evolution is spurred by violent competition; when in fact scientists like the late Lynn Margulis have proposed much more accurate evolutionary models founded on the concept of Symbiogenesis.

So next time you see someone in need of help, be a good ape and lend him or her a hand... or a tail.

________________
[UPDATE: Conner has chimed in to point out that the monkey's heroism may have more to do with Mutualism (Cooperation) than Symbiogenesis --even though the latter is a scientific theory, and the other isn't. A fair point, yet the idea of mentioning Margulis was only to underscore how there are better ways to explain Nature than the 'dog-eat-dog' world proposed by Neo-Darwinists.

It is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.
