    Its funny but, sorry, its a cheap shot. The theory of Gravity is about what makes Gravity work – not that it doesn’t exist, which is an observable phenomenon. That’s not the problem a small number of religious people have with the theory of evolution – including many I know who are highly trained scientists (ie Cambridge, Oxford etc) and several who hold to no religious belief at all. It’s not the evidence that is in dispute (usually) but the theory that explains it. If I decide gravity happens because of the magic of little invisible green men (they HAVE to be green) it doesn’t mean that, having found ‘THE answer’ I can now leap out of a window and miss the ground as Douglas Adams might put it.

    I know it’s a joke and not to be taken too seriously, but the earnest beliefs of many intelligent people in the world are being ridiculed inaccurately. By all means, ridicule them – but do so accurately and fairly…

    I have a nit to pick… Technically evolution is a theory that can never truly be proven (unless we invent time travel :P) and could possibly be replaced in the future. It is a theory and it kind of irritates me when people say it’s say.

    Saying this, the picture’s still pretty funny 🙂
