Q: Evolutionists claim that they have taught ‘language’ to a chimp. Can they really be taught to communicate, though, as we do?

A: After years of experiments in training chimps, no one yet has ever demonstrated that chimps have true grammatical ability—much to the frustration of evolutionists.

On the other hand, it’s been shown that human babies instinctively grasp the structure of any language. This confirms that humans, but not animals, were created to speak.

A fascinating example of this ‘inborn’ language ability comes from Nicaragua, in Central America. About 500 deaf children were placed in communities.

According to Discover magazine, these deaf children began to ‘talk’ to teach other with a full sign language that emerged from nowhere! This language had the elements of grammar, a full vocabulary, and everything you’d expect in a language!

This is exactly what creationists would expect. God created the first man, Adam, programmed with a complex language—the ability to communicate with God and man. All humans have inherited this ability from Adam. We’re all wired up for it! Evolutionists can’t explain this.

Chimps will never be able to learn a language as human beings can—they weren’t created for it!

Read your newsletter on chimp communication [relevant excerpt, right]. Interesting how evolutionists spend years “teaching apes how to communicate with humans.” When my oldest son was born, the nurse took him from the OB, wiped some amniotic fluid off of him and placed him on a stainless steel pan in the delivery room. It had to be cold and startling and, as expected, he began to howl and cry. As I walked up to him I still remember my exact words to him, “Old man, you sure are making a lot of noise!” The nurse instantly grabbed my arm and said, “Don’t speak. Let him cry some more to clear out his lungs.” I was amazed and said, “you mean he knows my voice?” The nurse replied, “Of course he does. He’s been listening to it in the womb for 9 months!” The words of Psalm 139 have meant much more to me ever since. Eighteen years later he is now a senior in high school and becoming a man, yet the memory of that experience is indelibly etched in my mind. Apes don’t talk. And abortion is a hideous sin. “Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite” – Ps 147:5.
