Chimps Belong in Human Genus?

talesout Oh lord. (928 comments)

Yeah, it's great that we're finally acknowledging it, but think of the backlash. The religious nuts are gaining more and more power. I keep hearing about how the theory of evolution is being rallied against. People don't want their children "assaulted" with the "unholy words." Does anyone think our nation is even partially willing to have a rational discussion about the possibility that chimps may be a part of the same Genus as humans?

Not that I'm an advocate of sticking your head in the sand on stuff like this, but man, the timing just stinks. It's almost like it was brought up just to give credence to the ignorant proud.
