Monkey-Brained

Jillian Rayfield in TPM:
Have you ever seen a half-monkey, half-person? No? Well neither has Glenn Beck, which is how he knows evolution doesn't exist.
On his radio show today, Beck wondered how many people in the country believe in evolution, and said he doesn't: "I don't think we came from monkeys. I think that's ridiculous. I haven't seen a half-monkey, half-person yet."
"If I get to the other side and God's like, 'You know what, yep, you were a monkey once,' I'll be shocked, but I'll be cool with it," he said. 
Beck's book cover,  apparently unconcerned with irony.



Breathtakingly stupid as this common creationist 'logic' is, it's worse for not even referencing apes, but rather hybrid monkeys.  Perhaps Beck should check with Christine O'Donnell to see if she has any secret information about half-monkey half-humans?
