QUOTE: “We are great apes. All the great apes that have ever lived including ourselves, are linked to one another by an unbroken chain of parent-child bonds. The same is true of all animals and plants that have ever lived, but there the distances involved are much greater. Molecular evidence suggests that our common ancestor with chimpanzees lived, in Africa, between five and seven million years ago, say half a million generations ago.” -Richard Dawkins, “Gaps in the Mind,” published in The Great Ape Project, 1993.

COMMENTARY: When revelation and reality are so far apart, my recommendation is to ignore the revelation. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
