Some anti-evolutionists think they are being clever when the point to chimpanzees , monkeys, and apes as evidence that evolution cannot occur, saying things like “if we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?”. That is stupid enough but even worse is that some seem to think that being biologically related to them is somehow shameful and something that we should be embarrassed about.
But watch this mother gorilla tenderly caress her baby seconds after giving birth. ((Via Carla Sinclair.)
And see how four baboons found a way to escape from confinement. (Via Jason Weisberger .)
Why would you be ashamed to be related to them, when humans can be so much worse?
