Thank you. Thought I had heard that in the past.
FWIW another way to regard that passage is this:
As life on earth evolved toward the human form, various
lines split off and lost the capacity to become human.
Again humans are not descended from animals, rather the
opposite - animals descended from the human line.
Definitely not falsifiable so not relevant to scientific
theories at all.
Mark also offerred a nice line of reasoning. Surely
little reason to get worked up about something in an
unreliable source anyway.
