Competing theories of evolution

James Watson: Africa is where apes turned into humanoids. Those who emigrated then went on to become fully human.

CCNY Professor Leonard Jeffries: The good "sun people," who are compassionate and peaceful, stayed in Africa and kicked the evil "ice people," who are violent and cruel, out. The ice people settled in Europe.

Gloria Steinem: The good people stayed as they were, and the piggish oppressors grew appendages between their legs.

Although few would admit it, much of political theory stems from these competing beliefs.
