Could a chimps take over the world?

If you believe in evolution, they(we) already have.

If you believe in the bible, only in the movies.

Another perspective

Humans and chimps share a common ancestor, so the above statement is not totally correct. But to answer the question, no, chimps could never take over the world. Although they are far stronger than humans, chimps do not have the intelligence required to unite, plan, and implement a full scale attack on humans. Most importantly, they do not have the numbers. Chimps are outnumbered by humans 35,000 to 1. There are 7 billion humans and roughly only 200,000 chimps in the wild. In addition, even if their population was significantly higher, they lack the technological capacity to compete with human weapons. Brute strength, rocks, and sticks can't compete with machine guns, tanks, jet fighters, and nuclear bombs.

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings

In Chapter 5 of 'The Hobbit' what was Gollum's birthday present and why was it so important?

It was the One Ring. His cousin Deagol found it in the bottom of the river Anduin and Smeagol (Gollum) killed him for it. One of the justifications was that it was his birthday and it was a present for him. The Ring is important because it is the pivotal reason for the entire book: the re-emergence and ultimate destruction of the Ring.

The way that Gollum came by the Ring is also important: because the Ring came to him by evil means, it corrupted Gollum that much easier. In the end, Gollum's complete corruption and lust for the Ring was what (ironically) saved Middle-Earth.

Bigfoot Yeti and Sasquatch

Is a Yeti a type of monkey?

First answer

According to DNA evidence Yeti, Bigfoot, Sasquatch, ect are genetically between humans and chimps. Humans and chimps share %99 of the same DNA so Yetis and relatives are closer to us than even chimps. I think of them as the 'missing link'. I think it's only a matter of time before a body if found.

Second answer

There has never been any type of study on Yeti DNA published in a peer-reviewed journal, so the first answer is extremely unreliable in that regard. Chimps and bonobos are still our closest living relatives. But if the Yeti was a real creature, it would be some type of an ape. Apes and monkeys are distinguishable by their anatomy and lifestyle. Apes are tailless, have robust skeletons, and spend much of their time on the ground, while monkeys have prehensile tails, weaker skeletons, and spend much of their time in trees. Yeti are often describe as large bipedal apes. Despite this, the snow macaques of Japan serve as a good example of how a primate would be able to survive in such a cold climate.


When did apes and hominids diverge?

The first fossil remains that have been found were dated around 4.4 million years ago. These were the fossils of Ardipithecus Ramidus, which lived 1 million years before the last fossils that were found.


What is the taxonomy for chimpanzee?

Chimpnazee taxonomy:

Suborder: Haplorrini

Infraorder: Simiformes

SuperfamilY: Hominoidea

Genus: Pan

Species: Pan troglodytes

Subspecies: P.t.schweinfurthii, P.t.troglodytes,P.t.vellerosus,P.t.verus

Chimpanzees are 1 of the 2 extant species of the genus Pan.They are generally separate in their from the other Pan species-Bonobos_ by the Congo River.Bonobos are a distinctly different,markedly smaller.

Chimpanzees are members of the Hominidae family, along with gorillas,humans, and orangutans. Chimpanzees split from human evolution about 6 million years ago and the two chimpanzee species are the closest living relatives to humans, all being members of the Hominini tribe (along with extinct species of Hominina subtribe). Chimpanzees are the only known members of the Panina subtribe. The two Pan species split only about one million years ago.species.

Scientists have long been fascinated with the studies of language, believing it to be a unique human cognitive ability. To test this hypothesis, scientists have attempted to teach human language to several species ofgreat apes. One early attempt by Allen and Beatrice Gardner in the 1960s involved spending 51 months teaching American Sign Language to a chimpanzee named Washoe. The Gardners reported that Washoe learned 151 signs, and that she had spontaneously taught them to other chimpanzees.[27] Over a longer period of time, Washoe learned over 800 signs.[28]

The Difference Between

What are the differences between cold-blooded and warm-blooded animals?

Warm blooded animals generate their own heat through their metabolism.

Cold blooded animals need warmth of the environment to bring their bodily temperature to normal temp.

The main difference between a cold-blooded animal and a warmblooded one is that the warmblooded one has a physiology that includes mechanisms that heat and keep the body warm. The cold-blooded animal lacks these things and its body temperature will change in response to the weather (hot sun, snow) and what the animal can do to avoid the effects of that weather (like a lizard sunning on a rock early in the moring or hiding in the shade at noon).

Warm blooded animals have a constant temperature, and can live in cold temperatures. Cold blooded animal's blood temperature depends on their environment's temperature.

Animal Life

What are examples of mimicry in the animal kingdom?

A butterfly looks like a flower, so the other animals won't eat it.

Human Anatomy and Physiology

Is human DNA closer to chimpanzees or pigs?

Humans and chimpanzees share a much more recent common ancestor than humans and pigs. This results in humans sharing more of their genome with chimps than they do with pigs.

Even though a human's genetic code is more like a chimp's than it is like a pig's, all eukaryotic organisms share a significant amount of genetic code, vertebrates share even more, and mammals share even more than that; a human's DNA more closely resembles a pig's than it does a lizard's, and it more closely resembles a lizard's than it does a bacterium's.
