If we evolved from monkeys...

If we evolved from monkeys then why are there still all these monkeys running around? Why havent they evolved into something else? Where are the creatures between us?

  • Yaaawn! If humans evolved from mud and spit, why don't we melt when it rains? Truth stands on its own. As Forest Gump says, "Stupid is as stupid does." Wake up and smell the 21st century!

  • We didn't evolve from monkeys. Monkeys and humans evolved from a common ancestor.

  • No one ever said we evolved FROM monkeys. It's a common misconception.

    COMMON ANCESTRY. And we see that all the time. Check out the dogs in your neighborhood. The birds in your yard. The fish in the ocean. All those varieties...and God set it up with just some common ancestors.

    If you don't think He could have done that, you don't give Him enough credit for planning.

  • Wasn't this already a debated to death question this week?
    There are a few nuts that believe that they evolved from a monkey and are the cousin to them; but the majority say....we are not.
    Most of us are smart enough to know that we are humans and humans are not animals. Mammals yes, but monkeys.....hahahahahahaha and ha!

  • oh, i cannot stand when people answer a question like this with "We didn't evolve from monkeys. Monkeys and humans evolved from a common ancestor. " as if this is fact. NO ONE knows and never will know this answer as being fact. no one will ever know the answer to this question.

  • do some actual research on what evolution REALLY is instead of trying to debunk it with misinformation.

    We evolved from a common ancestor, as psugal said. This means an ancient species of primate split up because of some outside stimulus (like change of environment, lack of enough food, etc.). A select few of them had a trait that was slightly different and gave them a slight advantage. This group of them evolved into us, another group evolved into chimps. We did NOT evolve FROM chimps, we evolved WITH them.

  • truthteller, evolution is just as much fact as gravity. If everyone else on here can talk about God as if he really exists, then we can we can discuss scientific fact.
