breaking the species barrier

I've just stumbled across a provocative - & thought-provoking - essay by Richard Dawkins. It caught my attention because I'm occasionally asked if there's ever been a chimp-human hybrid. (The answer, so far, is 'no' - well, not since the two species diverged around 6 million years ago.) To Dawkins, the creation of such a chimera would change everything about our understanding of humanity's place  in nature.

Read his article, & see what you think.
