Ape Vocal Sounds do not Indicate Evolution

Up yonder past Deception Pass, the hands at the Darwin Ranch are doing some smoke and mirrors fake science again. Spurious research about orangutan speech has been happening for some time, this is submitted to the secular science industry, then the obedient lapdog science media puts spurs to it.


Fake news about how ape vocalizations give insights into the evolution of speech. This is another underhanded tactic to deceive the gullible.

Some time ago, we saw some of this word trickery. But like the aquatic ape silliness we looked at yesterday, Darwin's acolytes light their prayer candles and give glory to evolution because a load of malarkey appears to confirm their biases. Hail Darwin, blessed be! You don't need to have wasted money obtaining advanced degrees in pseudoscience to see that orangutans are essentially parroting speech like — well, parrots. Actual language requires cognitive skills and the ability to communicate, both sending and receiving.

This is a far cry from making sounds (including with a kazoo) that the "researchers" want in order to obtain rewards. Then these owlhoots have the temerity to claim that they are getting insights into evolution. Like yesterday, materialists seem desperate to cling to evolutionism instead of giving credit to our Creator and admitting that there is no evidence for evolution — despite smoke and mirrors in word games and overhyped fake news. Unfortunately, it deceives the gullible who crave "evidence" for evolution.
Knobi and Rocky are two of a number of orangutans (Pongo sp.) that have been involved in speech experiments running for many years. Knobi, a female, was born on 30 September 1979. Rocky is an adolescent male, born on 25 September 2004. Recently (August 2019), it was suggested that their latest vocalisations “could advance the understanding of (spoken) language evolution”. Let us examine these claims.
A few years earlier, a paper in Scientific Reports reported evidence for “dynamic and interactive vocal fold control” in Rocky. BBC Earth excitedly reported that he had “become the first to mimic human speech”. Essentially this consisted of ‘do-as-I-do’, when researchers changed their tone or pitch. The orangutan mimics the human being who in turn hands out an edible reward for each similarly-sounding grunt—the video clip is very telling.
