20 Satirical Illustrations That Poke Fun at Human Evolution

1025

With Darwin’s birthday fast approaching (Feb. 12th – mark your calendar), you were probably looking for a brilliant way to commemorate the man who noticed that our physical similarity to chimpanzees just couldn’t be a coincidence.

Darwin’s greatest achievement was the fact that he managed to convince quite a bit of the Western world of his newly discovered understanding that, with time, the fittest survive, the weak die, leaving a gene pool adapted to the world around us and eventually resulting in the prominence of particular traits over others until a genetically unique creature appears. This next series of cartoons takes the classic Darwinian evolution illustration showing how we developed as a species over the past million years since our ancestors began walking upright, and turns them around, so to speak.

Some of the cartoons offer commentary on social phenomena while others are just fun. Either way, they’ll get you thinking. Happy scrolling!
