From Dust

It’s really embarrassing that we still occasionally have to deal with the question, “If humans evolved from apes, why are there still apes?” It’s a nonsensical question. At least now there’s a useful rejoinder:

    Housekeepers have been asking this question for centuries.

    • Jer

      Good point. If dust comes from humans, then why are there still humans?

  • Gordon

    I don’t get how common ancestry can confuse people so much, have they no cousins?

    • UrsaMinor

      The argument is simplicity itself.

      “You claim that my grandmother was a Jones, but that’s impossible because I am a Smith. And you can’t explain how if Smiths are descended from Joneses, why there are still Joneses.”

      Any questions?

    If humanity came from god, why is there still a god?

    • Paul

      that one scores points

  • Reginald Selkirk

    If I am descended from Irishmen, then why are there still Irishmen?

    • trj

      Actually, there aren’t any true Irishmen.

      No wait, I’m thinking of Scotsmen.

      • Paul

        Lift up me kilts and what do you see
        Hanging three inches below me knees
        long as me arms and thick as me wrist
        with a knob at the end as big as me fist

        (Cited in defense of Scotsmen everywhere)

  • Reginald Selkirk

    Once upon a time another cow asked another dog: ‘Why have you not swallowed your trunk?’

  • busterggi

    If dust needs god to become man why can it create bunnies by itself?

    • Paul

      anyone who has ever owned two bunnies know the answer to that.

      • Itarion

        But that doesn’t explain where the FIRST bunnies came from…

  • Charles Corum

    Some graphic artist should re-make Michelangelo’s fresco with a chimp (or the Flying Spaghetti Monster) in place of god. That would confuse the IDiots.

    I never thought I’d say this, but it’s a pity I don’t know anyone stupid enough to say that. (At least I hope so. There are some in my life who could yet disappoint me.)
