Shane Warne believes that humans evolved from aliens from outer space.
The retired Australian cricketer is currently appearing on the Aussie version of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, and cast doubt on the respected, and well-researched, theory of human evolution, offering his own version in the process.
According to Warne, there is no way humans would have been able to build the pyramids in Egypt, and wondered why monkeys are still around if humans supposedly evolved from them, asking: “Why haven’t those ones [monkeys today] evolved?”
Warne explained his thoughts more in-depth to dancer and fellow contestant Bonnie Lythgoe, saying:
“Because, I’m saying, aliens. We started from aliens.”
“Look at those pyramids, Bonnie.
“You couldn’t do them. You couldn’t pull those ropes, huge bits of brick and make it perfectly symmetrical.
“Couldn’t do it. So who did it?”
Brilliantly, Lythgoe responded: “Has to be from another world, has to be.”
To be fair, we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and say that she probably just couldn’t be bothered arguing with him.
If Warne had perhaps paid a bit more attention in school, he would know that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is not based around the fact that humans evolved from monkeys, but that both species share a similar ancestor, which is now extinct.
Generations of DNA testing shows that humans and chimpanzees share between 98 and 99% of the same DNA genetics but, hey, who are we to pass judgement?
I mean, as Shane Warne says, LOOK AT THE PYRAMIDS!!!
