Why did God make some animals superficially resemble human beings?
One reason is to highlight the difference between animal and human life. The orangutan, gorilla, chimpanzee, and bonobo have only one/vigintillionth (1/1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000th) the IQ of a newborn baby. So-called demonstrations of intelligence are programmatic inteligence, like programming a computer. As far as any so-called proofs of creative, problem-solving intelligence, in every case, the animal used heuristic (trial-and-error) neural net processing. In other words, the animals are simply biological neural nets. Whereas a human being transcends neural net processes by a factor of Rayo’s number.
In insanely oversimplified terms, a gorilla can peel a banana while a human being can tell you the molecular composition of the banana in Chinese.
