Time: How We Became Human
You don't have to be a biologist or an anthropologist to see how closely the great apes--gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans--resemble us. Even a child can see that their bodies are pretty much the same as ours, apart from some exaggerated proportions and extra body hair. Apes have dexterous hands much like ours but unlike those of any other creature. And, most striking of all, their faces are uncannily expressive, showing a range of emotions that are eerily familiar. That's why we delight in seeing chimps wearing tuxedos, playing the drums or riding bicycles. It's why a potbellied gorilla scratching itself in the zoo reminds us of Uncle Ralph or Cousin Vinnie--and why, in a more unsettled reaction, Queen Victoria, on seeing an orangutan named Jenny at the London Zoo in 1842, declared the beast "frightful and painfully and disagreeably human."

It isn't just a superficial resemblance. ...

I just cancelled my subscription to Time mag after seeing this issue. I had signed up for the free 8 issues trial offer while checking out at Best Buy a few weeks ago (don’t know why I did this … I knew this is how it would turn out). It was very easy and automated via the phone but I was hoping to speak to a live person to register my disgust at the assumed ‘fact’ of evolution throughout the article. Maybe someone will do a follow-up call to see why on earth I would refuse 6 free issues.

Note, Ford owns part of Mazda, & they often sell the other's badge-engineered models. The car industry does the sincerest and most shameless form of flattery - imitation. They will buy and then tear down other companies' models to see what they did.

My hopeless dream for the car industry (last realized with the Model T & VW Bug): standardized commodity parts. The commercial truck industry does better here.

I notice my Ford Contour looks very similar to a Mazda 626, until I try to exchange parts, that is! Mabe one evolved into the other?

I would not take science information from Time Magazine very seriously. They have a long track record.

"You don't have to be a biologist or an anthropologist to see how closely the great apes--gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans--resemble us."

This similarity in design implies a singular designer, not evolution. Time writers need some hot rice and beans. It would help clarify their thinking, right FR?

I see they are still trying to push for evolution's uncontested victory.....It sure gets old....

Articles like this are such an insult to the great apes, regarding them merely as under-evolved creatures. Where are all the animal rights groups protesting?

Time magazine representing modern journalism at its best, as always.

Some Facts  
"Baboons are said to share 92% of their DNA with us. Granted a high degree of shared DNA, even if it were 90%, would that make them 90% human, as most interpret this? It is worth repeating what prominent evolutionist Steve Jones reminded his audience of recently in the context of man/chimp DNA-sharing: ‘We also share about 50% of our DNA with bananas and that doesn’t make us half bananas, either from the waist up or the waist down."

Chimps Relation  
Don't worry Neil
Apparently our DNA count is similar to animal and vegetable life on earth.
In fact the human DNA is twice that of a Banana.

So we are all "Half Bananas"

"their bodies are pretty much the same as ours"

How much is "pretty much?" Very slippery language. What is similar to one observer may be very different for another. Watch out for such verbal shell games, it is standard operating procedure for Darwinian apologists. What is plausible is not necessarily true.
