Talking Monkeys?

This is Ken Ham, and our life-size Noah’s Ark and zoo are open south of Cincinnati.


In an evolutionary view, how did speech evolve? Well, evolutionists have thought for a long time that speech came about when we evolved the equipment to form the sounds we make. But new research shows monkeys are able to make the same sounds we can. They even alter their calls to alert other monkeys of specific kinds of danger.

This communication ability is remarkable. But you won’t ever catch a monkey reciting Shakespeare! Why? Because their brains aren’t wired for speech. Evolutionists now believe speech evolved after the brain was rewired.

Starting with the Bible, we know God created Adam and Eve to speak from the beginning. God’s design in monkeys is amazing—but they don’t speak.
