Scientists claim they’ve proven Darwin’s theory:
Humans and chimpanzees share an almost identical genetic inheritance, scientists report Thursday in a landmark comparison that they call an “elegant confirmation” of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Although scientists have long believed that humans and chimps are related, this comprehensive analysis of their separate genomes offers the best proof of their shared genetic past.
The 3 billion genetic letters in the two genetic blueprints are 96% identical with just 40 million differences, the researchers report in the journal Nature.
Only 40 million differences. Hmm. Hardly anything.
