Eliezer: While you didn't specifically say that the guy you were arguing with was a creationist...... The creationists I find myself arguing with wouldn't say that the chimp and human DNA is similar by coincidence. My creationists would say that that the DNA is similar because:
1) DNA is what God used to program characteristics into living things.
2) God decided to make chimpanzees and humans similar.
3) To make them similar, He gave them similar DNA.
Eliezer: hey. how would your response change if arguing with these guys? also, you're awesome. just thought I would let you know.
