The question is this: is man an ape or an angel? I, my Lord, am on the side of an angel (Benjamin Disreali).
For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; how shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him. Hebrews 2:2-3.
Man is neither an ape nor an angel; man is the image of God. It is true Adam committed “high treason” but Jesus came to pay the supreme price; to make us “man” again.
It is better to be on the side of an angel
