The Evolution of Slapstick
Some Darwinists think they have figured out the origin of laughter. When our ape-like ancestors started walking, they found it awkward and often tripped over their feet. Bystanding apes apparently found this humorous for some reason, and thus slapstick comedy was born. The Times Online found this story good for some one-liners.
How can this be? Humor and happiness has no intrinsic meaning in Darwinian thinking. It’s all about selfishness and survival (cartoon).
