No, obviously not. Why are some of you so hung up on "genetic similarity" when you don't even have any objective standard to judge it?

We have a fused chromosome that is still two chromosomes for all other apes. Only humans have this, no other apes, and that alone makes humans genetically distinct enough that any comparison between chimps and humans is ridiculous.
