Hyped saga of clever chimp magically transforms the chimp into rational being

Spread the love

Perfect picture of state of current atheist materialism

In “Rise of the Planet of the Apes: Chimps 1, Humans 0, ” New Scientist, 4 August 2011) informs us re the Planet of the Apes remake:

The story concerns a scientist, Will Rodman (James Franco), who is developing an experimental gene therapy treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, which his father (John Lithgow) suffers from. Will works for an evil pharmaceutical company, GynSys, and is testing his drug – delivered by a virus – on chimps. In the real world, of course, this sort of early-stage testing is done on mice or rats, but testing on primates is much more emotive a subject for a film.

Which mean that stretchers are the new normal.

Will ends up adopting a baby chimp exposed to the Alzheimer’s drug. In a subtle hint by the film-makers that the animal is destined for greatness, Will’s father names the animal Caesar, and sure enough, the chimp grows into a super-intelligent, sign-language-fluent youngster who puts the achievements of real-life superprimates Kanzi and Washoe to shame.

Wait! We’ve spotted this scam on the street!: That Evilicious “but the monkeys talk to ME” ex-prof!

But inevitably, things go wrong. Caesar is removed from the family home and delivered to a prison-like primate sanctuary, where he meets other apes for the first time, and comes under the care of a bullying keeper

Wait! This is a fictional remake of Nim Chimpsky? Mere weeks after it came out?

Except, poor Nim could not do or be what humans demanded and that was the cause of all his troubles. Not that the “Rise”  film will give any hint of that kind of thing.

    Note that in The Planet of the Apes movies, the “evolved chimps” are given more human-like eyes by changing the color of the sclera. Darwinists also do this when showing man’s supposed ape-like ancestors (eg. statue of “Lucy” at St. Louis Zoo) and in science magazines.


    This “reconstruction” is from National Geographic 189(3):96–117, March, 1996.

    “I wanted to get a human soul into this ape-like face, to indicate something about where he was headed.” —John Gurche, sculptor.

    From the original movie “Planet of the Apes (1968):

    And look at how white the sclera of “Moon-Watcher” (Arthur C. Clarke novel) is in the opening sequence of “2001: A Space Odyssey (1:07 mark)

    And from a metaphysical website:

    Study Reports a Whopping “23% of Our Genome” Contradicts Standard Human-Ape Evolutionary Phylogeny – Casey Luskin – June 2011
    Excerpt: For about 23% of our genome, we share no immediate genetic ancestry with our closest living relative, the chimpanzee. This encompasses genes and exons to the same extent as intergenic regions. We conclude that about 1/3 of our genes started to evolve as human-specific lineages before the differentiation of human, chimps, and gorillas took place. (of note; 1/3 of our genes is equal to about 7000 genes that we do not share with chimpanzees)
