This question is on Midrash. Does Midrash says that during destruction of tower of Babel some groups of humans were turned into primates?


The Midrash (Tanchuma 18) does mention this, and it is also mentioned in the Gemara (Sanhedrin 109a). The idea is that whereas the wicked generation wished to ascend to Hashem, their punishment was that the Divine Image of humankind was taken from them.
