“The Human Genome project exploded the myth that man was a unique creation, proving we share DNA with rats, even the humble fruit-fly. We are less than 2% genetically different to chimpanzees. Far from being created by a god, we, as an animal, have evolved over millions of years to become what we are today.”

    rats, fruits, and chimps !

    doesnt surprise me in the least.

    Actually, that is rats, insects, and chimps. I could’ve told you that a long time ago. In fact, I can name some people that more closely resemble those ancestries than most. I have mistaken them for the originals on many occasions.

    Actually, it’s every living thing on earth that we know of… All share a common ancestor – that first self replicating molecule which evolved into the DNA that is the basis of all else. Not proven yet, but getting closer every day.

    And yes, I’ve know some folks who most closely resemble the tube worms which grow up around deep water volcanic vents, mostly in their lack of anything resembling a central nervous system (brains, spines, etc.)
