This week in STFU

I usually respect David Attenborough but when he recently said that humans have stopped evolving, I wanted to tell him to shut the fuck up because there is no way he could possibly know that kind of thing.  Evolution is a series of minute changes over a long period of time that add up to a huge change in the species involved.  So it's a safe bet to say that we've not stopped evolving and we never will.  And we'll never know we've stopped because the changes in our species are so minute and take place over hundreds, possibly hundreds of thousands of years, maybe even a million or two.

So seriously Attenborough, shut the fuck up about human evolution or check yourself into a nursing home.

Well said. Sometimes as people get older they think that when they die, the world does too. No, it doesn't.

Yeah, that kind of statement is basically just providing fuel for the people who don't understand evolution.
