Monkey See, Monkey Do

This is just too odd not to post up. Apparently, for the first time, Gorillas have been photographed having sex face to face. I guess that's never been done before in the land of monkey love.

This is being touted as a big deal for evolution, and studying our ancestors and so forth. Personally, I don't believe in evolution and kind of find it fun that this would even be a big deal. I mean, how do we know that the gorillas haven't been watching us while we were watching them and decided to just give this face to face thing a whirl. Think about that the next time you're doing the horizontal mambo - there could be a gorilla with a notepad out there watching and taking notes. What if we are their ancestors? Maybe they decided it was better eating bananas and fooling around all day instead of filling out TPS reports and we're doing all the work while they have all the fun. Damn dirty apes!

Ummmm, okay.

Apparently, things in nature are a big deal ONLY if documented by humans. Up until then, of course, gorillas couldn't possibly have ever done anything different. (thick sarcasm)

And one wonders if any of the scientists considered the idea that this kind of behavior could have been going on all along, and has nothing whatsoever to do with evolution. (After all, not all humans have sex the same way all the time. Wonder how that might be construed by the same scientists.)

Maybe for gorillas, doing it face to face is a mood killer...

Keanan: yep, if we don't see it, it never happened. If not for humans documenting things, oh where would we be?
