Amusing 1971 Canadian Film on Evolution, Natural Selection

One of the commenters suggested the developers must have been on acid.

Religion Kills !!!

Numbers 31:17-18 - Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.

Ah memories. I remember

Ah memories. I remember seeing dozens of short films like this on TV as a kid, between shows. They were all old but awesome.
First time I'd ever seen that zoom technique where you pan in and out over a scene with extreme zoom, before technology could support it, and therefore 3/4's of the film was drawn, was one of these short Canadian Film Board presentations.
Then the Heritage Canada films replaced them somewhere in the 90's.

I don't think it was acid though, that's what most cartoons looked like at the time. Grab an episode of the original Spiderman and you'll be amazed at the similarities.
