One More for the Road: The Tenrec

Or, how I learned to stop worrying and completely lose respect for proponents of Intelligent Design theory.

tenrec

I found this disgusting little monster stuffed and safely caged behind class at the charmingly out-of-date Horniman Museum the other day. I tried my best to draw it accurately because I thought it was so weird. It is called a tenrec, and it is an ACTUAL ANIMAL that EXISTS on PLANET EARTH! Ugh!

In the Wikipedia entry, the tenrec isn’t so bad looking. It’s actually kind of cute, in a pitifully ugly kind of way. But the real thing that I beheld at the Horniman (which actually may have been a different species) was utterly demonic. Why oh why would God – whoop, I mean why would an intelligent designer ever think to make something so hideous?! There are two explanations:

  1. The creator of all life on earth is cruel, disturbed, and/or artistically impaired.
  2. There is no creator of all life on earth.

Take your pick!
