Evolution is a pain in the ass, especially for herpetologists and ornithologists

The reason? Imagine you have a kid, and your neighbor has 2 kids, then you both find out that really, one of their kids is sort of... yours. (-- awkward pause --) That's basically the problem here:


Herpetology is the study of reptiles and amphibians, however unraveling the evolutionary history of these two groups (along with birds) has shown us that birds are actually nested in among reptiles.

Now, to be fair, I think the comic has it wrong: I mean, shouldn't this justify lumping ornithology in a sub-discipline of herpetology?

You're right. Birds are derived reptiles. In contrast to the cartoon, it makes more sense to lump mammals with snakes or turtles with than it does to pair them with birds.

I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at odungaspelltemple@gmail. com and later he gave me his WhatsApp number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.
