Creationists Are Mad That the Cincinnati Zoo Said Bonobos Are Our Closest Living Relatives

The Cincinnati Zoo posted a beautiful picture on Facebook this morning of a bonobo taking a nap in his mother’s arms. It included a caption that reminded viewers of a simple fact: “Sharing more than 98% of its DNA with humans, the bonobo is our closest living relative.”

It didn’t take long for the Creationists to come out…

Sorry not my relative…

I am not related to a monkey. Thank you very much.

[I believe it’s an ape, not a monkey, but I’m there with you.]

I don’t care what it is. I did not come from them.

You have to be honestly really stupid if you believe we came from apes

A few commenters posted articles explaining how we know our DNA is so similar, but I’m guessing the Creationists never clicked on them. After all, why bother learning new information when the Bible contains everything we could ever want to know?
