Evolution 1, Intelligent Design 0

Here is an amazing new find, reported by National Geographic and in this paper. Researchers found gorillas in the wild using sticks as tools ! Here in an excerpt...
  • Images show that one female gorilla was apparently using sticks to test the depth of water, another female made a bridge with stump detached from a bush to help her cross muddy ground, and, in another instance, a female was spotted using a stump, from a bush, as support as she dug for herbs.
And another one...
  • Only wild chimps, orangutans and captive gorillas were previously known to use tools, suggesting that tool usage might predate the evolution of men.
