WHO IS SMARTER?


The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany has conducted some research. Groundbreaking, unique much needed research that has resulted in the world learning that people are smarter than monkeys! Believe it or not Mr. Ripley, this research has actually been done, people have actually spent money to "figure this out". From the wires;

"European scientists gave a battery of cognitive tests lasting three to five hours separately to 105 2-year-old children, 106 chimpanzees and 32 orang-utans over two weeks.

"Using these multiple tests allows us to pinpoint where are the similarities and where are the differences," researcher Josep Call of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany said
In one social learning test, a researcher showed the children and apes how to pop open a plastic tube to get food or a toy contained inside. The children observed and imitated the solution.
Chimpanzees and orang-utans, however, tried to smash open the tube or yank out the contents with their teeth."

The results are in, kids are smarter than chimps! Is there anyone other than died in the wool kool-aid drinking followers of Darwin who did not know that? It is amazing that people would spend money on projects such as this. But beneath studies like this is the pre-supposition that there is no difference between monkeys and humans. It is the ideology that longs to prove that man evolved from apes, and thus there is no Creator. Because if there is a Creator then the creation would be responsible to their Creator. The goal has always been to prove that there is no God, from the Garden of Eden people have sought to hide in their sins from God.

This is the problem that Jesus Christ solves. His death burial and resurrection make it so that sinners no longer need to hide from God, but through Christ can run to and embrace God as their Father. The foolishness of people is that they would rather waste their time and energy seeking to equate humans with monkeys, trying to disprove the existence of God. Have you ever heard a dying person cry out and pray to a monkey?
