Chimps, Humans 96 Percent the Same
When determining the strength of a scientific theory, we need to test whether it's predictive. Darwin died before anyone knew what DNA was, but if his theory was right, once DNA is discovered and genomes can be encoded, humans and chimps will be found to be genetically similar.
Well, what do you know? Scientists have sequenced the genome of the chimpanzee and it's bad news for creationists.
[O]ur closest living relatives share 96 percent of our DNA. The number of genetic differences between humans and chimps is ten times smaller than that between mice and rats.
