I love pictures like this. It reminds us how close we are.
My wife and I were watching Nature the other night on PBS and they showed a mother gorilla nursing her baby. We were amazed at how much that image reminded us of just a couple of years ago when our daughter was nursing: the way that the mother holds her child, the way the child looks up with her eyes wide open staring at mommy, the way baby folds her arms and fiddles with her fingers.
I can't understand how some people, even if they don't understand the science, can refuse the fact that there is an obvious connection.
