Should You Trust Someone Who Thinks that He Is a Hairless Ape?

No matter the unfounded labels that malice may label those who trust in the Almighty, the title “Hairless Ape” is an accurate description of those claiming to have developed from monkeys into other apes scarce of hair. Therefore, I ask “Should You Trust Someone Who Thinks that He Is a Hairless Ape?” On first thought, any human claiming to be an ape degrades himself to an animal void complex thought, void of a moral conscience, and lack the belief in the continual existence of virtues. Should anyone trust someone to be honest who does not see honesty as a perpetual virtue?

Should anyone change their opinions to that of apes as those claiming to be beasts would have everyone do? They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. Do not such beasts claim everyone to be ignorant? Do they not claim that simple understanding is not sufficient, but that one must be affirmed by them, apes, on paper to have achieved a right level of understanding? Should anyone consider and change their thoughts to agree with that of animals?

For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Should anyone listen to anyone who claims to not see God in Creation? Should we trust those who do not honor God?

How can anyone trust the man who does not have a mind of reason to agree to being a man and to hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness? How long will we listen to the myths and fables of people who believe that they are hairless apes? Or, would you rather give your attention to someone who knows that he is made in the image of God? I’d rather give my attention to the words of Jesus Christ.
