Growing Gorillas on the Family Tree

The Evo Sith are getting a mite concerned about where to put gorillas on the family tree. Since gorillas and great apes have enough differences, they reckoned that there was branching way back on this alleged tree. Humans are supposed to be more closely related to the great apes, such as chimpanzees, but there's that little problem with the human genome similarity to gorillas. New problems have arisen.

The placement of gorillas on our family tree is causing difficulties for evolutionists. The "split" supposedly happened earlier, and in a different location.

Reassessment of dating is giving a new date to the branching off from the family tree, and Darwinists are none to happy about it, since it's much earlier and seems to have been in a different location than was previously thought. How do they come up with those dates, anyway? Assumptions, presuppositions, circular reasoning all help a heap. Whatever it takes to deny the Creator who made all things without evolution, and much more recently than evolutionist want to believe.
How much time separated the origin of gorillas and chimpanzees? Enquiring evolutionary minds want to know! Why? Because they think humans share the chimp branch of the evolutionary tree of life, and they want to know how long it took for humanity’s uniqueness to evolve.

Evolutionary opinions about how long each step in this process took have varied greatly. Even where they took place has been hotly debated, thanks to the dearth of ancient African gorilla fossils. The 8-million-year age now assigned to nine fairly modern-looking gorilla teeth found in Ethiopia’s Afar Rift, reported in Nature in February 2016, has fueled the suggestion that the chimpanzee-human branch diverged from its lineage shared with gorillas much earlier than previously thought—and that it did so in Africa.
