    It's interesting that we expected our ancestors to be more chimplike, rather than accept chimps and humans might have a common ancestor which differed from either lineage. To view ancestors as chimplike signifies we consider chimps not to have advanced as much as humans through evolution. We forget we've both reached this time point together. Mara
