    Though I've actually never read the book, I just saw the OG film, plus the sequels (Beneath the Planet of the Apes et al)also the one with Mark Wahlberg lol - HAIL SEIMOS!
    I read the book after seeing the original film and was a bit disappointed in it. One of the few instances where I think the film version is an improvement. But it is still a solid read.

    Is there some sort of forum prize for hilarious thread title?

    I read some off beat topics sometimes but what motivates this sort of reading? I wonder, the sexual habits of primates and egalitarianism? Really?

    At least I got a laugh today.

    Just didn't want to jack another thread with an aside:

    Several native American cultures were more matriarchal and egalitarian in nature, however some were more patriarchal. It was often dependent on the amount of food and resources and proximity to potentially hostile tribes/states.

    Bonobos are very matriarchal compared to Chimps. However, Bonobos live in region with relatively abundant food and resources and few natural predators. Genetically, bonobos and chimps are extremely close

    Glad you were able to laugh today. God bless.

    Its good to laugh, there's a lot of seriousness I cant account for around in what's obviously a pretty crazy time, I mean extrapolating anything from the behaviour or primates and considering it a plan for or concluding material about human nature? They dont even have a verbal culture for God sake!

    Do you all see what you're looking like people?! Its a sight!

    Loving how the like function lets you see who's making it to the lets align ourselves in case anyone had to even guess party there!

    Sounds like an interesting book.

    It is weird that people use that "promiscuous bonobo vs. murderer chimp" thing as an argument for why we should all reassess the foundations of human behavior and suddenly remake ourselves (in the image of bonobos).

    I've seen an article claiming that humans were actually closer to bonobos than to chimps, and suggesting that this idea should give people hope. As though we were all suffering from a collective self-image problem, "I'm a chimp; I was born a chimp, and I'll always be a chimp, and there's no use fighting it", believing ourselves to be a chip off the old chimp block, when in reality, we were all beautiful bonobo swans, just waiting for someone to awaken us to our true nature.

    "Oh, thank you, now that I know my true heritage, I can finally let out my inner bonobo, and together, we will heal society."

    Chimp Test!

    This test will determine whether you're a chimp, a bonobo, or a single-celled organism:

    1. Do you have sex with your enemies?

    2. Do you slaughter your enemies?

    3. Do you consider yourself not to have any enemies?

    If you answered yes only to #1, you are a bonobo. Congratulations! If you answered yes only to #2, you are a chimpanzee. You need to find Jesus. If you answered yes only to #3, you are a single-celled organism. Congratulations!

    If you answered yes to more than one of the above, you are insane.
    If you answered no to all three, you are probably sane.

    not true, what about hate sex, and slaughtering home intruders?

    Bonobos and chimps are different due to environmental factors, right? Either adapted to their respective environments and this shaped their culture and behavior?
