The Bible and Darwin's Origin of Species

One day the zoo-keeper noticed that the orangutan was reading two books: the Bible and Darwin's Origin of Species.
In surprise he asked the ape, "Why are you reading both those books?"
"Well," said the orangutan, "I just wanted to know if I was my brother's keeper or my keeper's brother."
