Chimpanzees have been known to perform dexterity tests with lightning speed, even while distracted. These speciesist tests, conducted within the meaningless context of a laboratory, are frivolous and disrespectful. A chimpanzee does not behave like a chimpanzee in the unnatural setting of a lab. At best, the experimenters only revealed their own lack of intelligence for coming up with such tests. And what about college students given the same dexterity tests? All promptly failed.

The tests executed in the following labs are much more sinister—unethically brutalizing our fellow primates with AIDS, cancer, radiation, torture, and other terrible agonies.

Quotation ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, God granted humanity ďdominionĒ over Godís Creation. More and more, faithful Christians are coming to see ďdominionĒ as a sacred responsibility, rather than as a license to do whatever we want with the earth or Godís animals. Our dominion over Godís Creation should be patterned on Godís loving, compassionate dominion over us. If we fail to show love for Godís Creation or mercy for Godís creatures, should we expect God to protect us from the consequences of our own heartlessness and self-indulgence?
