There is a creature in existence that is so remarkably like us
in shape, feature and posture... that it's freakishly eery and yet fascinating.
A creature so familiar yet alien.
A creature some of us have spent a lifetime looking for (ie bigfoot)
and yet it isn't as hard to find.
...and most important of all,
a creature that represents another solid link in support of evolution...
and yet this creature is rarely covered by wild life documentarians or in text books...
and after reviewing the pictures, on a visceral level i think i can understand why.
He looks so much like us, it naturally prompts one to ask a lot of uncomfortable questions.
Like for instance, is this creature a man, monkey or... both (mankey)?
Behold the Proboscis aka Nasalis larvatus:
(pay special attention to the legs, feet, forearms, back posture and face... remind you of any relatives?)
My point in this thread?
To present proof that in very fundamental ways men are essentially monkeys
and monkeys are basically/basic men...
and that this reality is so hard for us to come to terms with,
that we embrace stories about our superiority instead.
...and most importantly, that the elusive Sasquatch mystery is now officially solved.
So where do i go to collect my accolades and reward money?
Yes, on that last part i'm just monkeying around... or am i?
