No, I said that the terms 'ape' and 'human' are mutually exclusive. This means that you CANNOT assert that 'humans are apes' because it's a logical contradiction, in exactly the same way that you cannot say that 'my wife is a bachelor'. It is not a matter of 'evidence' but a matter of semantics.

UC is saying the following: 1) When a baboon with floppy ears and a fruitcake look on his face lies besides you in hospital, the doctor designates with the terms ape blood and human blood a concept that your life will depend on.

2) Ape, monkey, simian, baboon can all be used interchangeably in the *vernacular* sense. The alleged common ancestor between man and ape is an exercise in semantic smoke and mirrors: it was a monkey or flea scratching baboon or if it makes you feel more intellectually sophisticated then you may call it a primate. As long as you understand that this replaces one vernacular for another as John Wilkins explained.
