Quote# 5932

[Replying to 'Humans are primates by definition']That's the problem...humans thinking their definition... This goes beyond simple categorization to just about everything science does. Some scientist saying I am a primate 'by definition' does not automatically make it fact. It's still an opinion until that scientist can claim to know absolutely everything about every difference and nuance in both primates and humans.

Do they not know what "definition" means?

Learn something about genetics, then we'll talk.

At least 98% of our DNA matching that of chimpanzees defines us as primates (we've just evolved along a different path to the chimps that exist today). And Darwinius masillae provides the link between humans & apes.

Science therefore defines you & your Creationist bullshit as LIES.

But you just keep moving those goalposts. You're gonna need to move the entire pitch when the LHC does what it was built to do. You & your way of thinking is the definition of denial. Which isn't just a river in Egypt.

Well if we're not primates then what are we and why aren't we primates, please provide CREDIBLE scientific sources to back up your claims.

"Definition"

You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
