Are people really smarter than chimps?
Before you answer this, think, everything we classify as intelligence is based our definition of it. Could it be possible that we manipulated the definition to only suit us? At the end of the day, we are animals. Just like chimps, just like dogs, just like dolphins. We are 1% genetically different from chimps, which means that everything thats different about us from chimps comes from that 1%. But what if that difference is not all that much? Imagine another life form, that is 1 % different from us in the direction that we are different from chimps. What would be to them?
