One of my great grandfathers tried to join the Klan at one point. No lemur has ever done anything like that. Lemur violence is limited to some restrained biting and wrassling over mates and good fruit trees, and is never racially motivated.

I don’t know what the revulsion is about. I kind of like the idea that I have relatives going all the way back, that human history is so long and complicated. And lemurs are quite pretty, as well.

A lot of people seem to fear that if God’s work is more complicated than simply doing everything by big flashy magic, the way we imagined when we read Bible stories as little kids—if it is so complex and nuanced and hard to understand that we begin to realize we’ll never put the whole picture together—that somehow makes it less special. I say more special.

And I like to think that at some deep, far distant genetic level, I am related to my dog, who is a far better person than I’ll ever be.
