      Sentient is too broad a term, John. At any rate, we are talking about habeas corpus for monkeys. I’m all for monkeys being set free. I’m not for treating them as though they were our ancestors. Since Dawkins says we all come from pomegranates, next we will be freeing the fruit from grocery stores.

        Well, first up, Dawkins doesn’t say that, Evolutionary Science does, because that is where the unignorable evidence is. You’re not a Creationist, are you?

        Secondly, this goes well beyond monkeys. We should treat all sentient life with respect and kindness.

              I can’t say that I am a straight up creationist only because creationism is becoming so strict and narrow as not to allow other hermeneutical viewpoints or approaches. BUT, I absolutely believe that God created the heavens and the earth, that there was an Adam and Eve, and that the Bible is God’s Word. You already know this about me.
