Don’t Humans Share DNA with Apes? Isn’t that Proof of Evolution?

Don’t Humans Share DNA with Apes? Isn’t that Proof of Evolution?

“Claim: Humans share almost 99% of our DNA with Chimpanzees.
 
Reality: This originally came from analyzing only the portion of the genome that is already similar. Looking at the broader genome including Indels, that percentage is closer to 86-89%. If “junk DNA” is considered (which is not junk!), the percentage is even much lower. Genetic researcher, Dr. Jeffrey Tomkins, shows the similarity may be between 71-86%. He states, “While it is true that there are sections of the chimp genome that are very similar to humans, this is not the complete picture. DNA sequence comparisons that include all the relevant data plainly show that the human and chimp genomes are not nearly identical at all.” (http://www.icr.org/ article/human-chimp-dna-nearlyidentical)”
