The belief that we have evolved from chimpanzees still exists supported by the premise that chimpanzees and even dogs have been proved to be able to do simple math such 4 + 4 or even a little bit of algebra. Thus the faculty of thinking and reasoning as being the distinguishing factor between humans and monkeys does not seem to hold any more. What does Your Grace say?

If the chimpanzees could talk and not just count, no doubt they would rebuke the supporters of evolution. In the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, we learn about a man named Balaam, whose eyes were so dimmed by his own arrogance that the donkey he was riding, saw the Angel of the Lord standing in front of them and tried to stop. The donkey had more sense than Balaam to acknowledge the Angel of the Lord. "Then the Lord opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, 'What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?" (Numbers 22:28). Finally the Angel of the Lord rebuked Balaam and said to him, "Behold, I have come out to stand against you, because your way is perverse before Me. The donkey saw Me and turned aside from Me these three times'" (Numbers 22:33).

Unless someone is willing to have a balanced understanding by researching scripture and the fathers' writings, discussion and debate regarding this topic are futile. I urge you to search the literature on the Diocese website or other Christian-based articles and documents and you will discover overwhelming support for the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation. "And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve....But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15).
