 Primate
The English singular primate is a back-formation from the Latin name Primates, which itself was the plural of the Latin primas.
Opposing thumbs are also a defining primates feature, but are not limited to this order; opossums, for example, also have opposing thumbs.
In primates, the combination of opposing thumbs, short fingernails (rather than claws) and long, inward-closing fingers is a relic of the ancestral practice of brachiating through trees.

 Response to Primate's New Year's sermon
By eliminating all references to religion in public, the powers that be have indeed insulted a large segment of our Canadian population - those who count faith as a very important - yes, necessary - part of their lives.
Every religion, the social engineers would say, is good and valid, so long as it is not the religion of "white Europeans" who are a tainted, opportunistic, irredeemable group, whose ways and customs must be abandoned at all costs.
I think the place of religion in Canadian society is in a sorry state, but not just because the memorial service in Ottawa after Sept. 11th omitted any "prayerful interfaith response." I think that is a symptom of a much deeper malaise in the government, in society and in the churches.

 Primate (religion) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Western Church, a Primate is an archbishop (or rarely a suffragan - or exempt bishop) of an episcopal see (called a primas) which confers precedence over the other bishops of his own province, or over a number of provinces (possibly part of a province), such as a 'national' church in (historical) political/cultural terms.
In stand-alone ecclesiastical provinces, the Primate is the metropolitan archbishop of the province.
In England, the Archbishop of Canterbury is known as the "Primate of All England" while the Archbishop of York is "Primate of England".

 The Church in Ireland During the Reigns of Mary and Elizabeth (1553-1603) @ ELCore.Net   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Primate Dowdall was recalled from exile, and restored to his See of Armagh; the primacy, which had been taken from Armagh in the previous reign owing to the hostile attitude adopted by Dowdall towards the religious innovations, was restored, and various grants were made to him to compensate him for the losses he had sustained.
The truth is that Elizabeth’s representatives in Ireland had not the power to enforce her wishes in regard to religion, nor did Elizabeth herself desire to stir up a general insurrection by attempting to punish the lay nobles for their flagrant disregard of her ordinances.
Elizabeth feared that a general attack upon religion as such would be the best means of inducing all the Catholic noblemen to forget their personal rivalries and unite in one great national confederation.

 The Law of the Primate City and the Rank-Size Rule
The primate city is commonly at least twice as large as the next largest city and more than twice as significant.
An excellent example of a primate city is Paris, which truly represents and serves as the focus of France.
Some scholars define a primate city as one that is larger than the combined populations of the second and third ranked cities in a country.

The primate cited a number of factors for the absence of religion from public life.
Religion, he said, has been treated as "a dangerous commodity, likely to lead either to conflict, or to religiously-motivated repression if allowed too much scope in public life."
But while he called for a renewal of public discourse on religion and citizenship, the primate said it "cannot succeed if it is pure nostalgia; the future we seek will not be served by a return to the old days, in which a distilled and nominal Christianity influenced and constrained public life."

 Vivisection at CRPRC
As the president of the American Society of Primatologists he is an exemplar of what primate researchers see as the epitome of a "good scientist." A good starting point for understanding what this really means is his recent paper: "Cognitive style: problem solving by rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) reared with living or inanimate substitute mothers.
ENAS, JOEL D. writes: "The primate model is well suited for preclinical PET studies based on the anatomic and functional similarities with the human brain." With the chemicals he is studying, he "had previously demonstrated uptake in the rat brain....
The purpose of the present proposal is to investigate some aspects of forebrain expansion in the somatosensory system in two species of primates, macaque monkeys and marmoset monkeys..." Essentially, she plans to put electrodes into their brains and inject some chemicals into their brains as well.

 Hungary - Religion
Evidence suggests that a serious falling away from religion among Catholics (especially a drop in attendance at church services) occurred only during the 1960s and 1970s, ironically during the period when the government no longer energetically persecuted the church.
Nor was any single church or religion particularly associated with the national identity in the popular mind, as was the Catholic Church in Poland.
Thus, religion was unlikely to become a vehicle for dissent as in Poland or, in a more limited way, in the German Democratic Republic (East Germany).

The experiments also revealed, astonishingly enough, that puzzle-solving monkeys who were not rewarded with food actually performed better than those who were rewarded, leading him to conclude that baby primates and by extension, baby children are motivated by a range of emotions, including curiosity, affection and wonder.
The work was revolutionary: it overturned remarkably damaging dogma about love and attachment in the 1940s and 1950s, and it was carried out by a contrarian psychologist with a troubled personal life, one in ironic contrast to what his science was demonstrating.
After building a small primate laboratory on university property without obtaining official permission, he spent the next 25 years demonstrating the wonderfully diverse and complex learning capabilities of rhesus monkeys.

 Religion and Morality
Religion is also very common but it is not universal and it did not cause the codes or the instinct to observe them.
Religion is not the bulwark of morality any more than the cockerel crowing if the cause of the dawn or the virgin sacrifices are the cause of the volcano keeping quiet.
The only purpose I can see in religion is as a way to catch the attention in order to reinforce the messages of the natural morality that we as a species are already responding to.

 Taking the Bad With the Good
Religion looks more complicated today than it did some 50 years ago, when a tolerant liberal Protestantism shorn of the irrational and the pagan seemed to fit well with a liberal political regime.
An initial chapter presents a phenomenological description of religion, drawing on classic (but not uncontested) theories of religion to show what Appleby takes to be a fundamental "ambivalence" in the human response to "the sacred" -- an ambivalence that is the inevitable result of the limits of human understanding.
Rejecting what he calls the "minimalist" approach to religion’s participation in public life, an approach in which religion is privatized and kept separate, Appleby wants us to consider the possibility that the right kind of religious zeal, not religious restraint, is the answer to global violence.

This 1.6 percent difference means that humans are nearly as genetically similar to chimpanzees as bonobos, and because bonobos are a second species of chimpanzee, Jared Diamond has proposed that humans are, in fact, a third species of chimpanzee (Fouts: 55).
New genetic data have altered primate taxonomy so that humans, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans are now grouped as "hominids," a term once reserved for humans and human ancestors alone (Fouts: 57).
Early studies, which attempted to teach primates to vocalize language, failed because chimpanzee morphology differs in the larynx and tongue making it difficult to vocalize as humans do and because chimpanzees are quiet animals.

Religion has led people to commit a long litany of horrendous crimes.
Another difficulty for the view that morality is rooted in religion is that some elements of morality seem to be universal, despite sharp doctrinal differences among the world's major religions.
An alternative explanation from biology and geology is that over millions of years we have evolved a moral faculty that generates intuitions about right and wrong.

 Canada trying to suppress religion in public arena, warns Primate -- 'Faith and culture are intimately connected'
As evidence, Archbishop Peers pointed to the deliberate exclusion of religion from the Sept. 11 memorial service on Parliament Hill, while mainline denominations were part of the same services in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Archbishop Peers, Canada's Primate or senior Anglican bishop, said while the country prides itself on its multiculturalism, it is mistaken if it ignores the faith upon which many of those cultures are based.
That suppression of religion would be "folly of the worst sort," he said.

 Jensen warns US church over gays : Religion News Blog
The Anglican Archbishop of Sydney, Peter Jensen, has joined forces with conservative primates from Africa and Asia and issued a veiled threat to the American branch of the church over the ordination of gay clergy.
The group, known as the Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion, has warned that a “constitutional crisis” was inevitable if the Episcopal Church USA voted in favour of approving homosexual bishops or same-sex blessings at its convention next week in Minneapolis.
The statement did not specify what action the primates would take at the meeting, but have made it clear in the past they are unlikely to split from the church because they believe they represent the views of the majority of Anglicans.
