Abstract

Data has been extracted from secular literature that is contrary to the common claim that very few genetic differences exist between chimpanzees and humans. We found that significant reported differences exist in genomic similarity and gene regulation between chimpanzees and humans. The DNA sequence differences and genetic mechanisms reported in the literature support the conclusion that significant and unbridgeable genetic differences exist between humans and chimpanzees that defy evolutionary claims of a common ancestor.

Keywords

Human genome, chimpanzee genome, human-chimp DNA similarity
