Monkeys match humans in arithmetic tests
Monkeys have shown they are almost as good as college students when it comes to simple arithmetic, according to a study demonstrating that a monkey's ability to perform mental addition can rival that of people.

The test was carried out on two female rhesus macaques, called Boxer and Feinstein, who were pitched against 14 American college students with an average age of 23. Both groups carried out the same tasks of mental addition and the results almost ended in an embarrassing draw.

The test consisted of choosing the correct sum of dots shown on two consecutive computer screens. A third screen showed two boxes, one with the correct number of dots formed from adding the two previous computer screens, and another box alongside it with an incorrect number of dots. ...

How did the monkeys understand the instructions for the task? Did they teach them English first?
Monkey see, monkey do—they probably aped the students!

Isn't it amazing that intelligent humans are intrigued by such foolishness? The ungodly are not so but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away (Ps 1:4).

cool, no perhaps we can get some good bank tellers who wont come up short in the till at the end of the day.

Now if we could only teach elephants to do math - think of all the money we could save in that they only work for peanuts.

(yea lame but kinda funny)

"A kid stared at an organ-grinder and his monkey for hours and finally turned to his mother and said, "Isn"t it awful the way our ancestors had to beg for money!"

That was an old joke, but sadly young people are really believing this devil's lie because evolution is now taught in schools as "Fact" and not "Theory"!

Lol, with our country's education scores, should the statement be instead "Humans match monkeys in arithmatic tests"?
Anyway, the title is misleading:
The monkeys scored 74% and the humans score 94%. That not "matched" in my book.
Also, it was just extremly simple addition facts. Let's see how the monkeys score against the humans in solving complex calculus equasion. I bet the monkeys don't do well there.
I too laughed out loud, reading your
comment...but I also GROANED--knowing
that the true motivation of this article
and study is yet another attempt to prove
human-animal equivalence, which is an on-
going goal of the un-Godly, atheistic,
evolutionary set.
