    •  Some people feel threatened by this 'humans (0+ / 0-)

      are just animals' thing. They misunderstand a biological statement as an attack on their worth and ethics. One possible way to go would be talking about hominids as our precursors or side branches (Neanderthal man). Another way would be talking about DNA similarities (again Neanderthal man). That has the advantage that Neanderthal man can not be misconstrued as upright walking ape, as they had culture.

      He who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.
