"Human beings and chimpanzees have 95% shared genetic material. It's over." Where does this number come from? I've heard people saying the DNA was 98% the same since well before the human genome was sequenced, and the chimpanzee genome isn't completely sequenced yet. Where does this number come from?


On results vs. scripture based: If you want to divide it that way, there are a few schools of thought. Some say that God only demands a "best effort," and the missionary is not personally responsible for the conversion (that's between God and the proselyte). Others believe that certain people are chosen by God to be converted, and it's up to the missionary to make that happen. So these missionaries tend to be more results-based, whereas the first category strive for better "technique". There are obviously a lot of other categorizations that could be made, this is just the first I thought of.
