Bioethicists like Peter Singer have advocated ‘human’ rights for apes, while at the same time proposing infanticide—that ‘unwanted’ human children could be killed up to 28 days after birth (sadly, even President Obama refused to vote for a law that would require that babies born as a result of an attempted abortion be given proper medical care). In essence, this is because he has downgraded the status of humans rather than elevate that of the apes. However, the Nim experiment shows clearly that his claims have no scientific basis. Apes are created to do what apes do, and human capacities far exceed any of the ‘smartest’ animals. This is because human beings are made in the image of their Creator and endowed with some aspects of His nature.
