image for It smells like evolution! Evolution

Befuddled evolutionists are again pushing the limits of credibility with their latest whimsical fairy story.

According to characters actually paid by the University of London, about 200 million years ago, some small rodent like creatures developed large olfactory bulbs, found just in front of the brain, this enabled them to smell better.

How and why this change came about is like the rest of evolutionary theory, shrouded in speculation, whimsy and flummery.

These shrew like rodents are hilariously claimed to be a distant ancestor to humans. Really.

Somehow, the 'boffins' then conclude that this large olfactory bulb managed to increase the brain of the rodent. Again, a mechanism of how this further happy accident occurred is sadly lacking, but no doubt will be hitting your kids 'science' textbooks soon.

"I can smell something.......but it is not evolution!!" quipped our resident scientist.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
