The Evolution has no proof, and makes no sense, just a theory to try and find a cause or reason for existence of things, whilst rejecting God and the concept of Creation which is far more logical. Me writing this now, you reading it, the world's whole existence could not have been by chance, God created you and me for only one reason that is to worship him, follow his guidance that he sent with his Messengers, and thank him for his blessings, he gave you two eyes to read and learn, reason to comprehend the right from the wrong.

notice certain people with gifted memories usually with a trade off with communication? isnt there a certain spectrum of autism that does this?

Humans are the ONLY species on the Planet that are born, with the Natural ability to tie a knot in a piece of rope.........because Humans are the ONLY species that has the Natural Born ability of Reason.......... no other animal has that, animals can only mimic...... because animals only have instinct........ not to mention the the DNA of Humans does not match with ANY Animals .. if man evolved from Ape......... man would be able to Produce offspring with an ape..... man cannot produce offspring with ANY animals....... OH sure, you can screw one, if your stupid enough to try, and May the 4th be with you on that........but you will never ever see a two legged sheep..... People who spend their time trying to prove Darwin, are just not getting Laid nearly enough with the right kind of animal

This video raises really important questions. There is actually a book that calls into question the supposed dominance of humans in linguistic cognition and suggests that apes may be potentially closer to it than we think, and shows a frightening display of how things can become dangerous when apes gain super intelligence:

The problem with this theory is that it is completely based on the premise that evolution, another theory, is true. As a Christian, but also someone who likes concrete evidence, this was disheartening. At least say something like "assuming evolution is true, we think this" instead of inferring it at the start and not even considering anything else. It doesn't have to be full blown biblical creationism, but at least show some other angle that makes sense, please.

Listen to a song.
A song you have never heard before. Repeat the lyrics in your head and you can sing along with a song you don't even know the lyrics too...
Without even knowing what is going to be said yet we can think it almost right away.
Now try and sing along outloud to a song you haven't heard before. Doesn't work so well does it.
Language slows us down.

Considering Michael was able to keep up with Ai it might be a good idea to have more human/chimp comparisons. Ai and Ayumu obviously had a lifetime to build up the skill, perhaps there's a difference in the rate of learning between us, so doing the experiment on uninitiated humans and chimps could be interesting.

Приготовьтесь! Срываю покровы… Японец располагал цифры не случайно, а узором. Цифры на начальных скоростях подсказывали обезьянам куда жать, но цифровой последовательности они не понимают. Для них цифры просто несвязанные картинки. А у человека цифры и их последовательность имеет высший приоритет, а так же он верит словам японца о честной случайности. Из-за этого человек не замечает узора расположения цифр. Верующий в случайность, избыточно образованный дуралей.

Most humans are not that different than chimps. Individually we are mostly chimps, collectively we are far smarter.

I think this hypothesis is a little bit of bs. If enough time was given to human, their photographic memory would increase and can beat everyone in the universe. The reason Michael failed is because he didn't need to use his photographic memory before. But chimps has to use it for avoiding danger. The lack of lion in our habitat made it disappear, not the talking. If we still live in the forest It would be better because we would be using our photographic memory as much as this chimp. So this is not a cognitive trade-off, this is just getting lazy.

11:43 Should be "Woman vs Chimp". That michael is female energy in a male body. The mouth of the wicked cannot keep silent. Stop adding primitive noises everytime the intelligent scientist speaks. When the scientist is speaking, keep the camera focused on the scientist. Too much fake, out-of-bounds facial expressions by the primate michael. I'm tired of homosexual camera whores ruining what could be truly interesting documentaries. The creature of low-intelligence always echoes the superior being in an attempt to gain self-validation. Where are the ovens and gas chambers?

But what about chimps who can and do learn language and symbolic language at that (able to read symbols) like Kanzi the bonobo for example? He has language skills similar to that of a young child as well as probably a similar short term memory to other chimps. That seems like it might go against this whole trade-off hypothesis.

Hold on wait. This is literally nearly the exact same words as an episode of brain games where they tested your short term memory. Especially in the beginning. Like no joke that set up the way he said it was exactly like brain games. :/

The other “thing” that separates us from “other animals,” is we aren’t animals. We’re human bonehead. Created by God to have dominion over animals and the rest of the world. That’s why we do just that. Wow.

There are people who can read whole book (hundred pages) around 5-15 sec. and you show us a chimp remembers just 9 numbers and say they have greater memory? Also fast reading isn't unique ability, everyone can learn it! It was fun to watch but you had the wrong conclusion...

This experiment is a bit offset since we humans recognize numbers already. Random symbols neither species understands but has to put in order would show better accuracy of cognizant skill.
