Is Bruce trying to make a monkey out of me?

Every so often, there's an attempt at a joke that completely falls flat. Is this meant to be a jab at the pro- or anti-evolution crowd? Is the recycled caveman attacking evolution or creationism? Who the hell can tell? Not me.

Personally, as a Christian, I find the creationists to be offensive. They've managed to reduce Christianity to an absurdity. Trying to read Genesis chapter 1 as literal natural history rather than as the beginning of salvation history not only forces Christianity into defending absurd propositions (e.g., carbon dating has errors in huge orders of magnitude), but misses out on the primary message of Genesis chapter 1: That God created the earth and all that is in it, and that it is good.

Be a glutton for punishment: Read the strip
