Those Slobbering Apes

Here in the US of A, it is the day before Thanksgiving. Folks might be salivating at the thought of gathering with kith and kin and strapping on the feed bag. Hopefully, most of us will remember to give thanks for our blessings. Speaking of salivating, proponents of molecules-to-monkey evolution analyzed ape saliva.

Add to the string of failures to link humans and apes, like this gorilla, is a study of saliva. You guessed it, we are different.

As we have seen, researchers keep coming up with nothing when they try to find anything but the most cursory similarities between apes and humans. (For example, DNA is a tricky thing, and depending on which part of it was analyzed, gorillas are more closely related to humans on the failed evolutionary tree than chimpanzees, our alleged closer cousins.) It turns out that this latest analysis ain't worth spit to evolutionary systems. That is because we were created separately, and did not evolve from a common ancestor, old son. We're very different from critters. Still, the research was somewhat interesting, I reckon.
In their quest to try and find some sort of evolutionary similarity between humans and apes, scientists have compared DNA, proteins, anatomy, behavior, and every other conceivable feature. But many of these attempts showed that a huge chasm of dissimilarity exists with no distinct evolutionary connection. And now, a new study comparing saliva between humans and apes is once again showing the uniqueness of humans and the failure of evolutionary reasoning.

Humans are unique, and we’re the only creatures on earth that celebrate holidays, such as Thanksgiving. And since the Bible says that God made us in His image, we have many, many reasons to be thankful.
