We Are Just ONE Step Ahead Of....

our closest relative. The Chimpanzee, like a distant cousin, is very close in personality and aptitude for education then us, homo sapien. The only thing that separates us from them is something happened a long, long, long, long, time age that got us out of the forest. What was it? I don't know. I'm not a scientist. But I do know that nobody snapped their finger and we came about.

Chimpanzees are currently being spotted out in the wild using tools, spears, to kill animals. This is something NEW! NEVER before in all the years of chimp study in the wild has a group of chimps used spears to hunt. Makes you think of us before we became US. We were the same. Hunters. Gatherers. Used basic tools. The, all of a sudden, we hunted as bigger groups; used more complex tools; took down bigger game. In essence, we became big-game hunters, while chimps are still small game hunters.

The recent episode of Nova on PBS examines the closeness of chimps and us. In a lot of aspects, chimps are a hell of a lot smarter than us. They just didn't hit THAT thing that veered us off course and became what we are today. Hopefully, when we are gone and the Earth destroyed, they RISE to the occasion, THROUGH EVOLUTION, and bring this planet back to the place it deserves to be. Here are all parts of the show. Watch. After the first 10 minutes you will be amazed. In 5 parts:
