Union minister Satyapal Singh made a peculiar comment on Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, he claimed that the theory “scientifically wrong” and it needs to be changed in school and college curriculum.
“Our Nana-Nani never mentioned Darwin going to jungle to witness ape-to-human transformation. His theory is WRONG, should not be taught. Humans appeared on Earth as humans from the very beginning.” the minister stated.
Satyapal Singh (minister of state for human resource development) told that our ancestors never mentioned that they saw an ape turning into a man.
“Darwin’s theory (of the 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 said while speaking to reporters on January 19.
The IPS officer-turned-politician was in this central Maharashtra city to attend the ‘All India Vaidik Sammelan’.
“Nobody, including our ancestors, in written or oral, has said they saw an ape turning into a man,” he said.
“No books we have read or the tales told to us by our grandparents had such a mention,” the minister added.
