Shane Warne is legendary for bamboozling batsmen, but when it comes to science and history he admits to being a bit in the dark. His solution? It was aliens! WATCH the video, above.
That’s right, in a lazy lakeside chit-chat on Australia’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Warnie pondered the evolution of man, questioning the Charles Darwin’s theory. He wonders how it can be that we evolved from monkeys and yet monkeys haven’t evolved. (Answer, Shane: We didn’t evolve from monkeys. Humans and monkeys both evolved from a common ancestor, we are just better at cricket. Tip: When you get out of the jungle, like our ancestors, use Google… there’s lots of cool stuff like this ‘Why Haven’t All Primates Evolved into Humans?’ that can teach you stuff.)
He then goes on to wondering how it is that the pyramids were built. His solution: it was aliens. (Tip, Warnie: See ‘Argument from Incredulity’ fallacy). Furthermore, he suggests it was those very same aliens that took some monkeys to make humans to study. They still wouldn’t be able to work out his ‘flipper’ ball, though.
We call “wide” on this one, Shane… really, really wide.
Of course, old Warnie is known for pulling a leggie every now and then.
