It also reinforces the fact that we are not "special" or "chosen." We are simply more evolved. Next, the religious will decide that gawd gave apes souls as well, just to avoid the inevitable argument that we are not so different from them. There will be a big to do about the "awakening" of the simian soul.

Very interesting article. I've thought the same thing for a few years, since taking anthropology in college. It also lends a little more credence to those that want to include chimpanzees in the human genus, changing them from Pan troglodytes to Homo troglodytes. And that could open a whole new can of worms...
