IF THEY WEREN'T MISLEADING THEY'D HAVE NOTHING TO SAY:

Humans 'more than big-brained apes' (Press Association, Aug 20, 2007)

The myth that many animals had human-like abilities arose because their similarities have been over-hyped, according to Dr David Premack, from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

The human brain was wired in a way unlike that of any ape and this is reflected in unique patterns of behaviour, he said in an article in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Ignoring the important differences between animals and humans had given a misleading impression, Dr Premack argued.

Ignoring the differences between animals and humans is a major tennet of the left's agenda: to ultimately deny the unique worth of human life.
