Central Minister says Theory of Evolution wrong, gets slammed on Social Media.

Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Satyapal Singh told reporters on Friday that the Theory of Evolution is “scientifically wrong” as there are no historical records which say that people saw apes turning into human. The Union Minister said,  “Darwin’s theory (of evolution of humans) is scientifically wrong. It needs to change in school and college curriculum. Since man is seen on Earth he has always been a man,” he said while speaking to reporters on Friday in Aurangabad. He further added, “Nobody, including our ancestors, in written or oral, have said they saw an ape turning into a man.”

People haven’t been too pleased with the performance of the NDA government in the education department and believe Narendra Modi hasn’t paid sufficient attention to the Ministry. The latest gaffe by Satyapal Singh only served to further concerns people already have with the workings of the Ministry for HRD.

People took to Twitter to express their disappointment and mock the Minister for his statement.

Until now, the only people who have demanded that evolution be dropped from the school curriculum are Christian fanatics and Islamic fundamentalists in the United States and other countries and that has been for largely theological reasons. The statements of Satyapal Singh, then, come as a shocker especially for a country the culture of which has never witnessed a conflict between science and spirituality.
