For years we’ve been told that human and chimp DNA is some 99 percent identical. Is that true?
Darwin asserted the “absurdity” of evolution designing a shared opening to the esophagus and trachea (windpipe).
Properly considered, we are told, human beings are just a species of chimpanzee anyway.
A view open to intelligent design can follow the evidence freely. It does not require a particular narrative of how humanity arose.
Darwin’s reiteration here and elsewhere of the phrase “we may confidently believe” veils the tenuous truth-value of what he proposes.
