Say hello to ex IPS Officer Satyapal Singh. He is currently the minister of state for human resource development.
Satyapal Singh claims that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is “scientifically wrong” because nobody saw an ape turning into a man and that’s why it needs to be stopped teaching in Indian schools and colleges.
Darwin’s theory is scientifically wrong. It needs to change in school and college curriculum. Since the man is seen on Earth he has always been a man. Nobody, including our ancestors, in written or oral, have said they saw an ape turning into a man. No books we have read or the tales told to us by our grandparents had such a mention.
It’s actually really sad that people on Twitter are not even surprised by his level of ignorance given ministers have seemed to have developed a knack for it these days. Here’s what people are saying about Satyapal Singh on Twitter:
Wonder why Satyapal Singh studied so much. SHould have just stayed at home and listed to Naana, Naani pic.twitter.com/FE4sBUU4jN

Darwinism is a theory of biological evolution developed by the English naturalist Charles Darwin (1809–1882) and others, stating that all species of organisms arise and develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual’s ability to compete, survive, and reproduce.
