I was created to the image of God and am no Monkey!
Koko sent me the pic of his fiance, a bald (hairless) very muscular bonobo. The more I look at the picture, the more uncomfortable I am. He is short, wide shouldered with bulging biceps and a powerful hand. His teeth are large and white, and his expression is defiant and sarcastic. We are very different, very different.
The problem is that we are not. With some cosmetic surgery here and there, he would be easily hired as a nightwatch, a security guard, sargeant, rugby player, rock singer, army general, or CEO of a large corporation in need of a strong leader. He is human. Or it is me who is bonobo? No! I am a human being, no evolutionary twin of Koko-san. He is an animal while I was created by God.
Really, I felt in my guts the rejection of the mere idea that I am like this hairless anthropoid. I dont WANT to be an anthropoid animal. I am but I feel uncomfortable in my skin. I want God to create me and not to evolve in the African savannah.
If I could, I would be a Creationist.
