  • I dont think God looks like a monkey :-)
    So the answer is Created in His own image. :-)

  • No, then again, neither did Darwin. If you actually read what he wrote you would note that Darwin's theory states that we share a common ancestor with Apes. NOT that we evolved from Apes.
    I do believe a combination of the two. That God did create us, but he used evolution as his tools.

  • No. I believe that we evolved from an ancient PRIMATE, not from an ancient monkey. We are STILL, today, classified as primates, along with an assortment of apes. Genetically, that is what we are. A toy poodle and a wolf are BOTH genetically canines, even tho they look very little like one another. Same for us and monkeys and apes. One branch of the genetic tree took one direction and the other took a different direction. And even if you believe in creation thru the hand of god, you WEREN'T there! You don't KNOW how he accomplished his creation of humankind. It may very well have been thru evolution for all you know.

  • We are primates, cousins of the monkeys, evolved from a common ancestor.

  • I agree with Witchqueen and everyone else that pointed out we did not evolve from monkeys we have a common ancestor with apes. Big difference.

  • How come we haven't evolved into something else by now?

    So your belief is that if we evolved we would have evolved in to something else? Did you ever stop to think that we are? In another million years we won't be what we are today... That's just how it works... Evolution doesn't take years, it takes MILLIONS of years...

  • no. I do credit the concept that we share a common ancestor with apes, and both evolved from them.
