Did someone actually send this question to Morris? I know that this is being proposed by some groups of peoples (a "publicity stunt" by animal rights activists), but I would think that Christians everywhere would already be able to answer this question for themselves.
Humans are the only ones that God created in His image. Clearly we are distinct from apes. I believe that any group of people who are advocating human rights for apes is clearly "a few bricks short of a full load."
If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.
