Animal Rights Extremism Is Another Symptom of an Evolutionary Worldview

In an article called "Radical Environmentalism and the War on Humans", it was pointed out that environmentalism has some good elements that are based on compassion and what should be common sense. The extremist view is dangerous; I do not say that lightly, since some people advocate exterminating millions, or billions of people because Earth is more important than humans to some of them. 

Environmental concerns and care of animals are good things when kept in balance. But with evolutionary thinking, humans are devalued - and possibly endangered.

One aspect of this is "animal rights". This, too, is based on compassion and what should be common sense. Indeed, standing against animal cruelty is in line with biblical values. However, the extremists want to give animals the status of "personhood". (Hypocritically, an unborn human child is not a person to them and has the moral equivalent of lettuce.) This is based on evolutionary thinking. Creationists point out that people are made in God's image, and are special. Evolutionists degrade humans because of their evolutionary mindset. (Will bigoted, hateful thinking from fundamentalist evolutionists like this one lead to violence at some point?) While it may be easy to laugh off some of the "Give Bonzo sorta legal rights" movement as nonsense, it is actually growing. And they use "science" as validation.
Lawsuits on behalf of captive chimpanzees in America could be a turning point in how the judiciary adjudicates on animal rights. 
A group known as the Nonhuman Rights Project filed lawsuits on behalf of the chimps claiming they were ‘nonhuman animals’ that had a right to live free from confinement and not be regarded as property but as ‘legal persons’.
