Primatism, How’s that for You??

For how many years have monkeys been called monkeys in the English tongue? But, that caused problems for those who fell for Darwin and his monkey to man creation fable. OK, change the name of those creatures deemed the most closely “related” to man, “primates”. While they were at it, they tossed man himself into that new bunch of beasts. A diplomatic move I suppose. So, now we are no longer linked directly to the monkeys according to this logical slight of hand. But rather, children of “great apes” and share this new moniker, “primate” with them. I suppose that makes humans the real “king kongs” of the world. I could make up new words all day, but never match the pace at which “science” invents them.

Since this new “savior” of the world would have to be hard at work converting the masses and leading the flock on to all the greener pastures, it would only be fitting that they get paid and paid well.  When Huxley took over the “Royal Society” he was really able to get his crusade against the church and Christianity into high gear…
