Breeding Humans and Chimpanzees

In my early 2018 article "Human-Chimp Hybrids?",  I discussed some of the science philosophy and ethical concerns with this breeding concept. The article linked below deals with some of the science as well as other problems.

 Purveyors of molecules-to-monkey evolution and other secularists have long sought to do away with the Creator in regards to their version of science. Charles Darwin was influenced by Charles Lyell's ideas of geology, and Lyell wanted to divorce geology "from Moses". A similar view has been used in attempts to breed humans with chimpanzees.

In their efforts to reject the Creator, some evolutionists want to attempt hybridizing humans and chimpanzees. There are serious problems with the entire process.

No, we're not talking about actual physical contact, as breeding between the two does not and cannot happen in nature. Efforts have been made to make it happen artificially (with a racist approach, no less), but always failed. Now another sidewinder wants to use the CRISPR gene editing device to try again. He argues that humans are just animals and not created separately in God's image. One major problem with his view is the debunked claim that humans and chimps have extremely similar DNA.

There is also the problem of ethics. Indeed, secularists have few qualms in tinkering with DNA and chimeras. This was clearly seen when Dr. He Jiankui produced the first genetically-modified babies. The ethics of human-chimp hybrids should not cause many qualms with creation deniers.
A new movement headed by Professor David Barash to prove evolution by breeding humans with our claimed closest relative, the chimpanzee has gained credence. A core teaching of Neo-Darwinism is that humans are simply another animal produced by evolution. Researchers have produced many hybrids, even between two animals once classified as different species. . . .

Professor Barash concluded from this observation that it is “by no means impossible or even unlikely that a hybrid or a chimera combining a human being and a chimpanzee could be produced in a laboratory. After all, human and chimp (or bonobo) share, by most estimates, roughly 99 percent of their nuclear DNA.”He added that the gene-editing tool known as CRISPR...is regularly used to deliberately modify the genome of many life-forms. . . .

Consequently, Barash added, “it is not unreasonable to foresee the possibility—eventually, perhaps, the likelihood—of producing ‘humanzees’ or ‘chimp-humans.’ Such an individual would … be neither human nor chimp: rather, something in between.” Some evolutionists believe after humans and chimps separated from our common ancestor and became separate species we were still able to interbreed. Consequently, since we used to interbreed, to do so today would not be unexpected.
