    link.
    What do you think? I think it's pretty cool. People need to be reminded we are apes.

    We are not apes. There might be things about apes that closely relate to us but we are in no way apes. We are creations of God.
    James 1:17

    "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."

    No matter what you believe about evolution or whatever, we are apes. It's basic taxonomy. Opposable thumbs, no tail, etc.
    If you believe humans were created by god, I don't care, because if that's true then all species are created by god and if humans aren't apes then no classification is possible.

    Well it all depends what you call an ape.

    Lets look at the Webster's.

    Webster's
    "1 a : MONKEY; especially : one of the larger tailless or short-tailed Old World forms b : any of two families (Pongidae and Hylobatidae) of large tailless semierect primates (as the chimpanzee, gorilla, orangutan, or gibbon) -- called also anthropoid, anthropoid ape"

    "Any of various large, tailless Old World primates of the family Pongidae, including the chimpanzee, gorilla, gibbon, and orangutan."

    Saying that we are apes seems to be pushing it.

    bah, webster's definitions of science and species are BS. apes are NOT monkeys.
    try wikipedia- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ape

    the family Hominidae consisting of gorillas, chimpanzees, orangutans, and humans, collectively known as the "great apes".
    or look at it's definition for "human"

    no (good) scientist will tell you we are not apes.

    It isn't reality's job to satisfy our egos.

    Read about this on AOL. Wish I could see it. I love being an ape. Chimp's rock. Too bad we don't have their dexterity in the trees as the gibbons as that would be incredibly fun. Oh well. I am gonna go eat a banana.

    We're just animals in the same way anything else is - we just have bigger brains and advanced communication. Everything is made by God though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Incidently, putting humans in zoos isn't new. Incredibly groups of black people were put in some zoos in America many years ago. Humans might have bigger brains than other apes, but we can be incredibly stupid quite a lot of the time.
