Gorilla at an Illinois Zoo Rescues a 3-Year-Old Boy – New York Times

how do people who don’t believe in evolution deal with the following story?

A 3-year-old boy fell into an exhibit occupied by gorillas at the Brookfield Zoo this afternoon, and was rescued by a female gorilla that cradled the child and brought him to zookeepers.The boy injured his head when he fell 18 feet onto the exhibit’s concrete. He was alert when taken to a hospital, although his condition was later listed as critical.Seven gorillas were on display in the exhibit. One of them, Binti, a 7-year-old female with a baby gorilla on her back, picked up the child, cradled him in her arms and placed him near a door where zookeepers could retrieve him, said Sondra Katzen, a spokeswoman for the zoo, 10 miles west of downtown Chicago.

  1. I guess it’s a matter of perspective, my friend. I would look at the same story, and say, Isn’t it miraculous how God can use a gorilla to save the life of a child?

    Because they have similar maternal qualities hardly proves ancestry.

  2. it doesn’t make you, even just a little bit, curious about it all?

    it doesn’t make you question whether evolution might accurately describe how we humans got to be how we are?

    as a side note — and maybe you were speaking colloquially for brevity’s sake, but no one in authority on the matter believes that gorillas are, in any way, a human ancestor.

    what evolution explains is how humans and gorillas likely evolved from a shared, primate, ancestor.
