APES, DARWINIAN CONTINUITY, AND THE LAW

APES, DARWINIAN CONTINUITY, AND THE LAW (pdf file - 121.90 KB)

This article proposes that the delusional worldview that “man” is outside of and above the other “defective” organic beings in nature is completely without empirical scientific foundation. While respected members of academia have used this delusion to pander to the vanity of the educated members of the human species, this article presents solid empirical evidence from chimpanzee sign language research to contradict these speculations. The basic assumptions derived from this delusional view are examined and logically discredited. Finally, an alternative and harmonious way of being is presented that is derived from the acceptance of the biological reality of continuity.
