But what's so bad about being an animal anyway, ape or otherwise? It's just a term. It doesn't make us any less human. Some people get all hung up on the most stupid things.

Regarding the OP, I agree, bonobos have more morals than Yahweh.

Humans didn't just evolve from apes, they are apes right now. Homo Sapiens is a part of Homininae, which is a subset of hominidae, which a synonym for great apes. It's like birds; they didn't come from dinosaurs, they are dinosaurs.

It was either that or I would write an essay about the evolution of the kingdom leading down to humans. I need to keep myself under control. Maybe it is a teenage scientific mind thing.

RE: Image of god vs being and ape
T.H. Huxley (Darwin's bulldog) himself used the example of an ape to rebut Bishop Wilberforce who asked Huxley, ‘Is it on your grandmother’s or grandfather’s side that you are descended from an ape?’ Huxley said, ‘I would rather be descended from an ape than a man who uses his great faculties and influence for the purpose of ridicule.’
