Q: What zoo displayed humans as a part of its exhibits?

A: Some time ago this is exactly what happened in a zoo in Denmark. Imagine walking up to an exhibit in the apes and monkeys section, and in between the lemurs and baboons, you read a sign labeled Homo sapiens. The information on the sign gives details of our diet, habitat and other information.

Evolutionist Quote of the Week

“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves, for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory for ever and ever.”

– Jeremy Rifkin, Algeny, Viking Press, New York, p. 244, 1983.

And then, as you peer into the exhibit—you see two live human beings!

Why did they do this? A zoo official said that he hoped the exhibit would encourage people to face up to their origins. He stated, “We’re all primates. Lehmann and Botoft (the two people on exhibit) are monkeys in a way, but some people find it hard to accept. This is a way to maybe help people realize that.”

While children crowded around the display, many adults apparently seemed somewhat uncomfortable by the sight. We wonder why?

We think it’s because man is made in the image of God, and in his heart he really knows that Genesis is true and he is not some rearranged ape or something like that. Sadly, human beings often accept evolution, even though something inside them tells them it’s a lie!
