Do chimpanzees disprove common ancestry?
Which answer would I get?
"Certainly, sir, we do, and all we need is confirmation via a paleoanthropologist identifying a skeleton of the speculated common ancestor Pan prior."
"banana give banana banana please banana"
@CRR: Thanks. I was rolling with old-school Ameslan and fingerspelling. I had not even considered that it's easier to sign "banana" than it is to fingerspell "paleoanthropologist."
@Graham P: Thanks, I'll go look at the links.
@Kate B: They are NOT getting my umbrella no matter what they offer.
You really hit home with your "trustworthy" comment.
The orang-utans have never paid attention to me (I think it's because of their cage design).
The big male gorilla hates me, but I am not special in that way. He hates everyone on the wrong side of the plexiglas, and he stands at the front of the cage so the other gorillas can't interact with the crowd of looky-loos.
The bonobos aren't talki
So that leaves us with Pan troglodytes. It just might be that they're getting tired of my stupid questions!
I am so glad that people aren't getting tired of my stupid questions.
