Geneticist Thinks Man Evolved From Pig and Chimp Hybrid

ManBearPigLet’s see… who gets to be pissed off first? Scientists? Religious fundamentalists? The pork lobby? Al Gore? I’m going to go pop some popcorn.

Via The Times of India:

Turning the theory of human ancestry on its head, Dr Eugene McCarthy — one of the world’s leading authorities on hybridization in animals from the University of Georgia has suggested that humans didn’t evolve from just apes but was a backcross hybrid of a chimpanzee and pigs.

His hypothesis is based on the fact that though humans have many features in common with chimps, there are a lot more that don’t correspond to any other primates. He then suggests that there is only one animal in the animal kingdom that has all of the traits which distinguish humans from our primate cousins.

“What is this other animal that has all these traits? The answer is Sus scrofa – the ordinary pig” he says.

He explains: “Genetically, we’re close to chimpanzees, and yet we have many physical traits that distinguish us from chimpanzees. One fact, however, suggests the need for an open mind: as it turns out, many features that distinguish humans from chimpanzees also distinguish them from all other primates. Features found in human beings, but not in other primates, cannot be accounted for by hybridization of a primate with some other primate. If hybridization is to explain such features, the cross will have to be between a chimpanzee and a non-primate – an unusual, distant cross to create an unusual creature.”

    I have proof that all came from Man, my proof is ask any female and they will tell you: “The Human Man will screw anything!” I rest my case! Actually, I want Science to prove me wrong; I want ‘screw’ anything, then again don’t temp me; “I’m only human.” Dr. Gene ~Landrum, Philosopher of Quantum Science Theory of Everything.

    I can refute this science. Yes, we share a lot in common with primates. Yes, we share a lot in common with pigs. Heck, we share a lot in common with almost every creature on the planet in terms of DNA. However, we are an exact match to Pirates, our REAL precursors RAmen.

    I have it on shaky authority that it was an odd experiment with homunculus that led to what we know as man today. We rose up and defeated the precursors.

    1/2 pig & a shape shifter too
    lover & enemy of Pele goddess of the volcanoes
    but Hawaiians knew they evolved from the taro plant

    Wow, kind of amazing that this dude’s ideas even got published. Ancient aliens make more sense than this stuff. Maybe I’m totally wrong, but haven’t we known for a really long time that it is impossible for such different species as pigs and primates to even get a sperm to fertilize an egg, much less produce viable offspring? Sure there are ligers, mules and surely a whole buncha other similar critters, but those are necessarily very similar to each other to produce any offspring.

      But whar is teh scientific evidence. Can’t study it because it’s icky.

    Fasinating drivel and the moronic rants about Evolution saga continues.
    Genetics is a dead end track, al thoe they are fundamental they are not the one that is telling everything, and whats aminoacids anyway, huh.
    They hagle about what i define as simple varioations in the DNA and sinc our knowledge is not that great, we compare what seems to look alike and forgett the rest, all thoe the animals have a base and that base isnt that different from ours, and in that variation they say its vitale to classify speacies based on that methode.
    What we dont know, is what guides this delutional talks about difference, whats the implications of this diffrenece if any at all.

    Evolution may verry well be the constant reshuffeling the cells do up against the infromation it getts from its surounding and theyby act on it and creates the change, I havent read anything convincing lately regading this asppect.
    Is it evolution or is it Intellegent information and processing and then act upon this information and to even correct its behaviour to make use of its resent change in even physiology, this is what a simple cell is able to do.
    Mind over matter isnt all about humans, its to everything living, incl single cells, and beyound that into matter, and light.

    This manipulation of its own process and to make it happened, is what I belive is the main drive behaind everything, incl the variation of Birds.
    To compare a single entety with humans is equally stupid as the global warming scam and their rants about CO2, one f… parameter of a wastly more complex system, tell me everything I need to know about their false science.
    They provide me with all the evindece I need, its basic science.
    So, but I belive we are some of the oldest creatures on this planet, I belive we are hundreds of millions old, we where here with the dinosaurs.
    The only problem reaently is that we have degenerated into a mass of meat.
    Have lost everything, even our own mind.
    We may as well be more realted to Turkeys

    has anyone considered the possibility that maybe instead of pigs mating w/ chimps, that our alien overlords combined the DNA of the 2(or even other) species? I have heard new age authors who considered the earth as a lab to create humans and the animals (and plants) are leftovers and failed experiments.

    Pig + Chimp = Long pig. lol
