Skip to comments.'Humans evolved after a female chimpanzee mated with a pig
Posted on 11/30/2013 3:12:24 AM PST by Eurotwit
The human species began as the hybrid offspring of a male pig and a female chimpanzee, a leading geneticist has suggested. The startling claim has been made by Eugene McCarthy, of the University of Georgia, who is also one of the worlds leading authorities on hybridisation in animals. He points out that while humans have many features in common with chimps, we also have a large number of distinguishing characteristics not found in any other primates.
Dr McCarthy says these divergent characteristics are most likely the result of a hybrid origin at some point far back in human evolutionary history. What's more, he suggests, there is one animal that has all of the traits which distinguish humans from our primate cousins in the animal kingdom. 'What is this other animal that has all these traits?' he asks rhetorically. 'The answer is Sus scrofa, the ordinary pig.' Dr McCarthy elaborates his astonishing hypothesis in an article on Macroevolution.net, a website he curates. He is at pains to point out that that it is merely a hypothesis, but he presents compelling evidence to support it.

Knowing the University of Georgia’s policies on Media and Public relations, I am wondering if this fool bypassed them.
For one thing, it is patently outrageous, and secondly, it flies in the face of the black evolution theology that we all came from Mother Lucy (or whoever/whatever) they’re calling her these days. :^)
Muslims view of an infidel
So eating a pork chop is sort of like cannibalism.
I’m not going to say he’s entirely incorrect because, after a few beers, what is inconceivable becomes conceivable.
maybe we were genetically engineered by aliens from chimp + pig dna
I see the commenters at the Daily Mail are wonderings what evolutionary surprises will be brough forth by the sheep farms in Wales :P
Oh, yeah. I can see a male pig chasing a female chimp all around the forest and trees finally getting his way with her.
Maybe she was willing, some women seem attracted to pigs :P
A possible explanation for ALGORE
Maybe Zer0 will revert back.
And, they both might have been pig drunk.
Documentary prood that pigs and apes party together in Africa (no kidding):
This explains why we like bacon.
Wait, no it doesn’t.
"So I saw this pig chasing a chimp....and he finally nailed her".
The conclusion that we are, in part, the product of the mating of a pig and a chimp is unprovable, as the professor admits, but the similarities between pig and human that he points out are, like it or not, true.
Some scientists are so confident of their superior intellect that they never doubt their own ideas. Even wild speculation is passed off as science, because it is a scientist speaking.
so Muslims descended from pigs
“’Humans evolved after a female chimpanzee mated with a pig”
The post was obviously a mistake...Should read “Marxist Dimocraps evolved after a chimpanzee mated with a pig”.
"....dat explains a lot....I mean have you ever known a monkey to clean up after themselves?"
As has been pointed out before, parts of our DNA is shared by many animals, not just chimps and pigs.
“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools”
Hardy’s theory of man’s aquatic origins does better at explaining than the theory of the pig-monkey, who is quoted above.
This is probably the most attention Dr. McCarthy has received in his entire life. Who says Georgia is nothing but a football program, eh?
He should go back to playing the banjo.
The Pig and the Monkey can have a lot of fun together. Both these signs are generally happy, positive types and both are sensualists, albeit the Monkey in a bit more of a decadent way than the Pig. The Pig loves fine foods, luscious surroundings, lovemaking, even simple pleasures like sleeping in a comfortable bed and taking a long bubble bath. The Monkey is more decadent than this in that its interests are less home-based and more centered in party atmospheres and big, noisy crowds in which anything can happen. To the Pig, family and close friends are the most important things in life; to the Monkey, the pursuit of pleasure is the important thing.
As lovers, then, the Monkey might spend some time trying to convince the Pig to go out rather than staying in; after all, the Monkey is definitely a sexual being but doesnt want to spend hours on end in the bedroom. After a while, though, the Monkey will tire of trying to motivate the Pig and will go out on its own. The Pig will have to be ready to compromise, since the Monkey isnt too flexible. The good thing is, when in love, the Pig is a very generous, acquiescent sign who wants nothing more than to please its mate; the bad thing is, this trait sometimes leads to the Pig allowing itself to be taken advantage of. The Monkey would never knowingly mistreat the Pig but might not be very careful either.
I think Eugene McCarthy got it wrong. It was a male chimp mounting the female pig that got it started. I had a friend who told me he did it all the time when he was on the farm.
Well, this would explain Islam’s prohibition to eating pork— they could be eating one of their own relatives....
Well, that would explain some of the couples I see walking around.
True, but not many are as close as pigs in the characteristics pointed out in the article. I know it's hard for many to accept.
He’s wrong. The truth is here.
Hmmm, long pig, eh? Now it makes sense!
Entropy is not a friend of “evolution”.
I contend that a monkey mated with a football.
Now we know where LIBs come from!
well, that explains everything! It all makes sense now.
Maybe that’s why eating pork isn’t good for you!
The good professor was sitting around with a bunch of liberal friends on election night, all drunk out of their minds. Passing several blunts between themselves, the prof eyed one of the bulldyke lib partiers. Into his head came the strains of ‘dueling banjos’ and he had his Eureka moment.
Oh, those crazy leghumpers
I disagree. dems are the result of pigs mating with rats. And now we are infested with these vermin. It’s a job for Orkin.
Ask Ned Beatty
“Squeal like a pig, boy. Squeal like a pig!”
This guy is a kook. Although one would think that he would have learned something about evolution while earning his PhD in genetics, he apparently slept through that part of his studies.
He has a grand total of 5 publications listed in PubMed, the most recent in 2006—which is an awfully low number. Also, even though he is described as being from the University of Georgia, he is not listed among the Genetics department faculty. He did get his degrees there.
I’m not surprised that he had to resort to self-publishing. There is no way his stuff would be published in any kind of scientific venue.
Most people who have PhDs in a life science are pretty intelligent, stable people. But a handful of nut jobs also manage to get PhDs. I’m thinking of Michael Behe and Duane Gish, specifically. It looks like another kook is now competing with them.
So leftists can no longer brag about evolving from a puddle of scum? I’ll need more proof.
This guy has had scientific training, but he's just a nut job. Wild speculation does not become science just because someone who was scientifically educated came up with the ideas. In order for a scientific hypothesis (not theory) to be genuine, it must be logically based in known facts--which this guy's speculation is not. In the science world, a theory is not speculation--it is the framework that ties together and explains a body of knowledge in a specific subject.
