Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle...

By Diogenes (bio - articles ) | Apr 17, 2007

... and he might be embarrassed to admit it, if scientists are right, and chimps are more highly evolved than humans. Now there's an angle that Darwinism hasn't covered.

Notice that there is no case on record of a chimp endorsing the theory of evolution. Maybe they're trying to tell us something.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    We live in Florida. Here it's dolphins that are more evolved than humans. Dolphins are more valuable than a human being. This was shown when 26 dolphins washed up on a Florida beach. They were rushed into emergency treatment with feeding tubes so they wouldn't get dehydrated. Large pictures in the paper showed dolphins with feeding tubes at the same time that Terri Schiavo was killed by starvation and dehydration.

    It is a known fact that there was limited seating capacity on Noah's Ark, hence the destruction of the dinosaurs and ring-tailed baboons. Hence a loving Creator arranged for evolution to fill in the cracks. Hence it is a known Darwinian conclusion that apes descended from man after the Flood. Res ipsa.

    "substantially more genes in chimps evolved in ways that were beneficial than was the case with human genes" ... maybe because, having rational control over our environment, we have not had to rely on genetic mutation to adapt to environmental changes?

    Maybe chimps are so highly evolved that they have found an alternative explanation to life other than evolution — and have such a low opinion of humans that they do not care to share it with us :-)
