Evolutionists say that humans and chimpanzees are more than 98 percent genetically identical. But is that true?

Evolutionists say that humans and chimpanzees are more than 98 percent genetically identical. But is that true? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Many people think this claim has been proven, but in a detailed examination of just one chimpanzee chromosome, geneticists found 68,000 small differences in the DNA between the human and chimp genes. An analysis of the 231 genes of this chromosome showed that 83 percent of them would make different kinds of proteins that differed from one another. So rather than humans and chimps being more than 98 percent genetically identical, so far they have proven to be 83 percent genetically different!

There are, of course, more differences between humans and chimps than genetics. Humans were created in God’s image and therefore are morally responsible to God. And most importantly, humans have been redeemed by God’s Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross of Calvary.
