From human evolution specialists Bernard Wood and Michael Westaway at The Conversation:
The question of where we humans come from is one many people ask, and the answer is getting more complicated as new evidence is emerging all the time.
We now realise that modern humans are just one of the African great apes. Bl21So when and how did this radically changed perception come about? More.
That’s nonsense and it will doom great apes. But we can be pretty sure post-moderns won’t care as long as they can blame someone else for whatever happens and their therapists give them something to make them feel better.
Non-post-modern reality: Great apes are not “entering the Stone Age;” they risk extinction. IQ tests are not “unfair” to apes; apes just do not have human intelligence.
And that’s what matters. That’s why we are classifying and protecting apes, not the other way around.
There is something grievously wrong with a model of science that cannot take so obvious a fact as the difference between humans and apes into account even when great apes risk extinction, and can’t do a thing about it.
