Union minister of state for human resource development, Satyapal Singh said in Aurangabad that “Darwin’s theory (of evolution of humans) 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,”. He also said that said our ancestors have nowhere mentioned that they saw an ape turning into a man.
Charles Darwin's theory of Evolution by natural selection is the basis of modern biology. As Theosdosius Dobzhansky said "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of Evolution". None of the marvels of biotechnology and genomics would have been possible without this theory. Man is very much part of this theory and there is no doubt now that man and the apes share a common ancestor.
It is inimical to the progress of science, especially the biological sciences that such a man who misunderstands and misinterprets absolutely fundamental principles of science, occupies the chair of minister in the Human resources department. He will play havoc with our education system and take us back to the dark days of superstition and blind belief.
Please sack Mr Satyapal Singh from the post of minister of state for human resource development, Government of India.
