Empathy In Humans Derived From Chimps, Scientists Say

Our ability to sympathize and empathize with each other has been regarded by scientists at Warwick Business School as genealogic traits derived from the likes of our closest neighbor, the chimpanzee. Some aspects of human emotion are so basic that I often consider it pure blasphemy that some still haven’t caught on to it. Most of these emotions revolve around the concept of empathy, but can also be things like jealousy and malice.

Are we dignified as a species to tread around the Earth with our inalienable right to behave in such an ignorant and inconsiderate manner? As another human being, I dare say no.
