They Hunt With SpearsI wonder how creationists would explain this:
Chimpanzees living in the West African savannah have been observed fashioning deadly spears from sticks and using the hand-crafted tools to hunt small mammals -- the first routine production of deadly weapons ever observed in animals other than humans [...]Not only does this reinforce the close genetic ties between chimps and humans, it also proves females are not just baby factories. As for females being dangerous violent bitches, that's another story.
It's always a good day when creationist and misogynist nonsense get skewered at the same time.
Plus, Shakespeare's Sister's hilarious take on the chimps hunting bush babies.
