More Differences Between Chimps and Humans
Evolutionists still repeat the falsehood that we and apes are 99% similar. The differences are actually profound.
Your Cells Look Young for Their Age, Compared to a Chimp’s (Duke University). “The secret to human longevity may lie in clock-like epigenetic changes that tick slower for humans than other primates,” the subtitle reads.
Many humans live to see their 70s and 80s, some even reach 100 years old. But life is much shorter for our closest animal relatives. Chimpanzees, for example, rarely make it past age 50, despite sharing almost 99% of our genetic code.
While advances in medicine and nutrition in the last 200 years have added years to human lifespans, a new study suggests there could be a more ancient explanation why humans are the long-lived primate.
Part of the secret to human longevity, researchers say, may lie in chemical changes along the DNA within our cells that slowed the rate of human aging in the 7 to 8 million years since our ancestors went their separate ways from chimps….
The new study, led by researchers at Duke University and George Washington University, marks the first time such age-related changes have been analyzed in chimpanzees, said lead author Elaine Guevara, an assistant research professor of evolutionary anthropology at Duke.
The myth of 99% genetic similarity continues in the press, despite repeated refutations (e.g., 27 May 2020).
They just cannot admit human exceptionalism. Every observation must be imprisoned in the Darwinian fantasyland.
