Ignorance: thy name is evolution

A news story was published in the Peoria Journal Star on August 27, 2005, page A6 which demonstrates both how ridiculous is the reasoning of evolutionists and how wrong they are.  The headline is “Humans on exhibit at London Zoo.”

Quoting from portions of the news story: “At London Zoo, you can talk to the animals—and now some of them talk back.

Caged and barely clothed within a rocky enclosure, eight British men and women monkeyed around Friday for an amused, bemused crowd behind a sign reading ‘Warning: Humans in their Natural Environment.’”

“Visitors stopped to point and laugh, and several children could be heard asking, ‘Why are there people in there?’

London Zoo spokeswoman Polly Wills said that’s exactly the question the zoo wants to answer.

‘Seeing people in a different environment among other animals … teaches members of the public that the human is just another primate,’ Wills said.  It also, she concedes, lets them ‘have a gawk at people.’”    

“Chemist Tom Mahoney, 26, decided to participate after his friend sent him an e-mail about the contest as a joke.  Anything that draws attention to apes, he said, has his support.

‘A lot of people think humans are above other animals,’ he said. ‘When they see humans as animals, here, it kind of reminds us that we’re not that special.’”

“Mark Ainsworth, 21, also heard about the Human Zoo on the news.

‘I’ve lived in this country for nine years and have never come to a zoo,’ said Ainsworth, who came with Wecker.  ‘This exhibit made us come to the zoo.  Humans are animals too.’

The human captives were kept well-fed and watered by zoo staff, who took care to ensure they did not grow bored.  A supply of board games was on hand, and some said they were looking forward to tuning into the England-Australia cricket match on the radio.

Unlike the zoo’s non-human inhabitants, they are allowed to go home each night at closing time.”

According to the zoo spokesperson and some interviewed people “the human is just another primate,” “it kind of reminds us that we’re not that special,” and “humans are animals too.”  Are these statements correct?  The answer is no!  The article itself proves that these statements are incorrect.

What is some of the evidence that we are not on the same level as animals as demonstrated by this news story?  Naming some obvious ones as illustrated by the story, the news story itself is proof we are not similar to animals.  Animals don’t print and publish news stories.  Animals don’t put other animals in zoos so that others animals can come and “gawk” at them.  Animals don’t put on and take off clothing.  If we were really animals just like other animals, why the clothing?  Because we have laws against not wearing clothing in certain circumstances and the zoo authorities do not want to violate the laws.  Do animals have written laws that dictate conduct and actions to be observed?  Of course not.  We are different than animals.  Different because we are not animals.  

Listing a few of the other differences as illustrated by the article:

Animals don’t verbally with the spoken word and in writing communicate with each other.

Animals don’t ask questions.

Animals don’t put up written signs to identify items of interest.

Animals don’t create categories for other animals—they don’t identify themselves as primates.

Animals don’t have personalized names for each other, i.e. Tom Mahoney.

Animals don’t identify with the age of the animal—I’m 26, he’s 21.

Animals don’t have occupations such as Chemists.

Animals don’t do what chemists do and can’t do what chemists do.

Animals don’t have e-mail.

Animals don’t divide territory into countries that have governments.

Animals don’t travel by vehicles they have created—automobiles, trains, ships, airplanes.

Animals don’t have concepts such as boredom.

Animals don’t have board games to keep themselves amused.

Animals don’t have radios.

Animals don’t have England-Australia cricket matches.

Animals don’t go home at night from the zoo.

Animals don’t have closing time—animals don’t have time or watches, or clocks, or calendars, or even sun dials.


The Bible declares “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1: 27)  Although there may be disagreement over what is meant by being created in the image of GOD, this much is certain.  No where in the Bible does it say that animals were made in GOD’S image.  

Man is a unique, GOD made being.  Men and women are not animals regardless of what evolutionists believe, claim, or teach!!!!!
