    Clearly he evolved from Santa Claus! ;)

    I love these sorts of details. I must see what I can come up over the next few days.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Rob.

    Cheers, Pete. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. I might do some more.
     
  4. I love that cute Santa! I really love that photo! Please share some more pictures of Christmas, if possible! :)

    That's not Santa. It's Charles Darwin, father of the science of evolution, which disproved the creationist view of the Bible. In his manuscripts he drew a tree, showing how species evolve over time. This became known as the Tree of Life, which I allude to above the photo.

    Hang on a minute, you mean it's Charles Darwin that fills the stockings every year?! And where on earth does he get all those satsumas from - I haven't seen a single elf on his diagram?! :eek:

    Ah, you've got me there, Pete. Another theory bites the dust (to dust).

    so the man who drew a tree is now hanging from a tree? sweet, he's come full circle!

    The moral is, be careful what you draw!
