Interesting, and clearly worded, but the audio skips and stutters a lot, especially toward the end.....
Scientists now know how evolution works. In the primordial soup a flash of lightning caused the instant assembly of a creature that immediately walked out on the shore. It had the body of an alligator, the neck of a goose, and the head of a bat. Scientists fondly dubbed this creature as “bat-gator”. Bat-gator then mutated to a frog, which became a flea, which gave rise immediately to a giraffe, then to a seal, to a sea horse, then an orangutan, then a cross between dog and bear like creature affectionately called doggy-poo-bear, then a gorilla, to a moose, to a goose, to a blue whale, to a gnat, to a chimpanzee, to a creature called “Dennett-man” which had an extraordinary low IQ and ate continuously, to a spider, to a T-Rex, to a lady bug, and then immediately to modern man.
