Do chimps act in ways that resemble our religious behavior? Since we share at least 98.5% of our DNA with them, perhaps it would be surprising if they did not. Watch this clip of wild chimps as they show subservience to their Supreme Being (aka dominant male) by kneeling in "prayer" in front of Him and how they react to thunder and lightning just as our ancestors did to their thunder and lightning Gods. Oh, and by the way, you will see proof that "bling" to show our status is not a human invention—more evidence of our genetic/behavioral debt to our nearest animal ancestors. Enjoy! Read about it in The Power of Faith: Mother Nature's Gift by Jay D. Glass, Ph.D. with an Introduction by Jane Goodall, Ph.D., order toll free: 1-888-281-5170
