OK I'm confused TalkReason , Aug 03, 2008
Of course the correct answer to question 8 in Nussbaum's questionnaire is "Not true." Evolutionary biology does not suggest that human descended from apes, but that both humans and apes have a common ancestor. Mr. Nussbaum has nowhere asserted otherwise, so he obviously understands that point correctly, although the way he formulated his question could confuse some readers as to his position. Thanks for your comments, which may help to clarify this point for those readers who are confused by question 8 in Nussbaum's questionnaire.
