Figure caption with the NPR political article/source:
"A display of a series of skeletons showing the evolution of humans at the Peabody Museum, New Haven, Conn., circa 1935."
That, and copying Huxley’s famous figure, might be what the museum exhibit creator had in mind, but these 80 or so years later we’re all done recklessly and inaccurately insinuating that we evolved from gorillas, that evolved from chimps, that evolved from orangutans, that evolved from gibbons.
A row of primate skeletons does not depict human evolution any more than a row of dog skeletons depicts the evolution of beagles.
It’s images like this that perpetuate misunderstandings that contribute to the obstacles to evolution acceptance. And of all places to mislead readers about evolution, an article about evolution denial is definitely not one.
edit (added after initial post): If NPR readers don’t see a problem with this depiction of human evolution but still feel superior to the evolution deniers in the article, then Darwin help us.

Please reblog if you know anyone who might take party drugs.
I’m not an emt yet, but everytime I see someone do drugs, I just hope they’re smart enough to remember these points.
As an nurse with ER experience, same thing. Dear God please just tell us what you took. I will not tell anyone from law enforcement or your parents or whoever, I just need to know so I can save your life. Please.
THIS. please educate yourself before taking any drug (esp nbomes) and make sure you trust your source. but regardless, please, please be aware of these things. it’s better to get a friend help than have their death on your conscience. and if your buddies wouldn’t do the same for you? you need better friends. period.
