MILEY CYRUS: LA PARODIA SCIENTIFICA PRO DARWIN

L'amore tormentato di Miley Cyrus diventa una parodia che la biologa e divulgatrice scientifica Carin Anne Bondar Ph.D. (qui il suo sito web) utilizza per spiegare la filogenesi della teoria di Darwin, caposaldo della scienza.



Durante il video la protagonista legge L’origine delle specie di Charles Darwin, e canta che “i fatti non si possono negare, la scienza non mente” continuando  con una piccola lezione sull’evoluzione degli organismi viventi, per finire ad appendersi alla palla di metallo e strusciarsi contro il martello. Azioni, diciamolo pure, che non sono passate inosservate quando eseguite dalla ex protagonista Disney.

Anne Bondar è anche una conduttrice di documentari TV piuttosto originali dal titolo Wild Sex (Sesso selvaggio) trasmessi su Earth-Touch: un canale sudafricano dove potete trovare bellissimi documentari naturalistici da vedere e scaricare gratuitamente in formato HD. Ne abbiamo parlato qui 

LYRICS (segue) il testo in lingua inglese


I am always troubled by the lack of awareness surrounding the process of evolution by natural selection. Also, I am a crazy dorky scientist who enjoys many aspects of pop culture. I'm a Miley fan, and when I first saw 'Wrecking Ball' it was just irresistible for me to parody it! Here are the full lyrics:


They fought, they strained, their lives in vain
They thought, always asking why
Not blessed but shunned, the world was stunned
But facts, no one could deny

You might think you know, only just suppose
What you're told isn't true

Facts you can't deny, science doesn't lie
There is actual proof

That organisms do evolve
That giant mystery's been solved
Creationism's proven false
Get familiar with our phylogeny

Yes, our phylogeny.

There's A, there's C there's T there's G,
They're called nucleotides
The helix turns with no concern
For Gods, or religious lives

Gene diversity, stochasticity
Just the fittest survive
Then they procreate, and some genes mutate
Varied forms are derived.

Yes organisms do evolve,
The experts have worked hard to solve
The complex processes involved
In the earth's history

Yes organisms do evolve,
There's no more mystery to solve,
Fundamental to life overall
Get familiar with our biology

Scholarship and science answer for
Absolute complexities within
Both extant and extinct creature forms
Understanding that is not a sin

Scholarship and science answer for
Incidents where divergence begins
Understanding that is not a sin
You might think you know, only just suppose
What you're told isn't true.

Cuz organisms do evolve,
There's no more mystery to solve
Creationism's proven false
Get familiar with our phylogeny

Yes organisms do evolve,
Such complex processes resolved
Fundamental to life overall
Aim to understand our biology

It's our biology
