    Damned kid better learn to stay out of the cabinet or he’ll learn about natural selection.

    This is Creationism if I ever saw it. Charles Darwin was born almost thirty years before the invention of photography.

    He was born the very same day as Abraham Lincoln. Wonder if they ever met.

    He seems a little slow. I doubt it took me 6 months to get into the dogfood.

    More like “Progeny recapitulates phylogeny.”

    “transitional fossils”
    At what point in the evolutionary timescale did x become y?
    On a timescale that we can grasp, at what point does an infant become a toddler, become a child, become an adolescent, become a man? gradual changes over time

    Personally, it looks like “Survival of the Fattest” to me – he is huge by the last panel…

    I have long contended that ontogeny etc. continues behaviorly after birth: fish wiggling, to lizard crawling, to mammalian quadruped walking (knees rather than hind feet), to bipedal with the skill of a gibbon (but arms out rather than up), but he left out thd next stage – they go arborial and try to climb everything!
