With this program Animal Planet yet again engaged in Darwinist propaganda based on chimpanzee intelligence and behavior. Animal Planet"s efforts to construct parallels between man and monkey throughout the program were striking. The documentary dealt with chimpanzees" use of tools and certain "political" behavior, such as making noises. Animal Planet, which has in any case adopted the mistaken belief that man is a species of animal, totally ignored the facts and made the unrealistic claim that the chimpanzee is not only a living thing capable of using tools, but that it is the only creature on the planet, apart from man, which is able to do so!
Darwinist preconceptions may have established a special emotional bond between chimpanzees and Animal Planet. Yet Animal Planet is mistaken in thinking that the chimpanzee is the only animal capable of using tools. It is a known fact in the scientific world that New Caledonian crows possess a superior tool-making capability. These creatures have astonished scientists by making the kind of tools no chimpanzee could ever make, and these abilities have been reported in the well-known magazine Science ("Shaping of Hooks in New Caledonian Crows," Science, vol. 297, no. 5583, August 9, 2002, p. 981).
In short, from the point of view of their tool-making abilities, chimpanzees are the most capable creatures only in the fantasy world of Animal Planet, which should at least fulfill its responsibility of basing the chimpanzee fantasies we have grown so familiar with in its pro-Darwinist broadcasts on "accurate" information.
The fact is that evolutionist propaganda based on chimpanzee intelligence provides no scientific proof of the theory of evolution. Statements along those lines are based on nothing more than a blind belief in Darwinism. You can find a more detailed article on this subject here.2003-06-13 00:00:00
