99% is not enough. Now it’s the 99.5% myth.

On last night’s CSI-Las Vegas Lawrence Fishburne guest starred as a psychology lecturer at a local university named Raymond Langston. In a scene in which Langston was lecturing his students he described an incident reported by Jane Goodall where two chimps killed ten other chimps. Langston compared the chimp killings to human serial killers and noted that we should not be surprised because – wait for it . . . wait for it – chimps and humans share 99.5% of their genetic code.
First, as far as I know, no one has ever suggested that humans and chimps share 99.5% of their genetic code. 99% is the highest figure I have ever seen reported. But even that figure has been discarded, and even inveterate Darwinists now admit that the 1% figure is a myth, as this article from PloS One demonstrates.
What does this all mean? It means that Darwinists are very very good at insinuating their propaganda into the culture, even when the propaganda is wildly mistaken.
