Influenced by his father, the physician Nicomachus, Aristotle developed an early interest in science. As a student of Plato he formed a love of philosophy and logic. He then became the tutor to Alexander of Macedon (later Alexander the Great). After Alexander became king, Aristotle returned to Athens, where he founded his own school, known formally as the Lyceum and less formally as the Peripatetic ("walking around") school, because students followed their teacher as he walked in the garden. Aristotle is considered the father of biology. Alexander the Great became his patron, funding his work and arranging for Aristotle to receive samples of plants and animals from all corners of the Alexandrian empire. Ancient scholars attributed as many as 400 treatises to Aristotle, encompassing all knowledge in Antiquity about the universe. About 30 have survived and these are thought to have been compiled by his students.
Charles Darwin's book The Origin of Species was a scientific bombshell in its day and remains a much-discussed work 150 years later. Darwin was the official naturalist aboard the British ship H.M.S. Beagle during its world voyage of 1831-36. His observations during the journey led him to develop a theory of evolution: the notion that species evolve as the fittest members survive and pass their traits on to future generations. Darwin announced his initial ideas of natural selection in 1858, and in 1859 he formally published The Origin of Species. The book was both popular and controversial: although Darwin was a religious man himself and once considered a career in the church, his theory of evolution was attacked by those who felt it was contrary to the teachings of the Bible. Today Darwin's theories are embraced by nearly all scientists and his theories are the starting point for the modern study of evolutionary biology, even as the religious arguments continue. Darwin published many other books and pamphlets on the topic in later years, most notably The Descent of Man (1871).

A humanoid (from English human and -oid "resembling") is something that has an appearance resembling a human being. The term first appeared in 1912 to refer to fossils which were morphologically similar to, but not identical with, those of the human skeleton. Although this usage was common in the sciences for much of the 20th century, it is now considered rare. More generally, the term can refer to anything with uniquely human characteristics and/or adaptations, such as possessing apposable appendage (thumbs) or the ability to walk in an upright position.Logical Scenario
Professor Geek has presented to an audience of biology students 3 life forms for examination:
After careful examination of each life form the biology students were required to vote on which of the three most resembled mankind.
Unanimously each biology student has voted in favor of the ape.
Professor Geek has performed the exact same test with an audience of computer programming students.
Unanimously each computer programming student has voted in favor of the humanoid.
Moral of my story is: Aristotle zoologist and Charles Darwin anthropologist have influenced our biology community to believe man has evolved from the ape. As such, humans have been categorized in the family of animals.

Aristotle was born 384 BC thousands of years prior to discovery of humanoids.
It was impossible for Aristotle to study life form beyond plant or animal.
As a result, Aristotle had no choice but to categorize humans in the family of animals.
Charles Darwin has pursued anthropology in search of a link between animal fossil with ape fossil to discover the evolution of mankind.
Theological records have confirmed that God has given man dominion over the Earth which has denounced Charles Darwin's theory that man has evolved from ape.
Conclusive evidence is there exist no record of any creature on Earth that has demonstrated the capacity to make and/or or enforce laws except mankind.
Wherefore, anthropology science must conclude once and for all that the human race may not be categorized with any animal family of apes.
Zoology has fostered the notion of caging animals for purpose of study, exhibit or control.
Prisons and/or jails have constituted zoos to study exhibit or control human beings who have been convicted of disobeying our laws.
Heaven forbids lawmakers to cage our human species in zoos as if we were animals.
God has given man dominion over the Earth as Humanoids. God has made us from the dust of the Earth to do God's will according to his word.
Amen!Ge1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Ge2:7 And the LORD God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
