Thread: chimps and humans in the same family

  1. #1
    well taxonomical family anyway.

    Full article below in spolier section, the gist of it is that the debate is hotting up on whether chimps should fall into the 'homo' genus with humans. (or alternatively whether we should join them in the 'Pan' genus).
    Doesn't really matter at all whether they reclassify, but i know that somewhere a creationist or two is really pissed off and that gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

    Spoiler: Show

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
