Why Then Your DNA Is 98.5% Chimp's DNA?

During human genome decoding it was found that our DNA is almost exact copy of DNA of chimpanzee (98.5%) and that is why some biologists consider homo sapience just as a third specie of chimpanzee after african and asian ones. So by what coincidence it can happen that God made us exactly apes (with minor difference we may attribute to various inherent errors)? Why in the world we are so alike? Body shape,anatomy, blood compsition, biochemistry, even emotions are almost identical. Why?

True that we have a little more gray matter which allows us to speak - but that is basicly it.

Chimps can solve logical puzzles, can learn up to thousands words of American Sign Language (ASL), can use sticks, stones and ropes (tools), walk upright, can smile, anger, sad, express interest, can love, hate and express that too, etc, They steal, cheat, kill, fight for leadership, like to hang bright objects like beads on them, like mirror reflection, like to put on shoes, hats, even cosmetics. And if you take a close look at a primitive man about 20-50 thousand years ago, I doubt that you can tell him apart from apes at all.

So, where is the "intelligent design"? Where are hands of god(s) here (ancients by the way believed in many gods)?

Why are we 98.5% apes?
