  • Some believe in creationism, which is to say that God or some supreme being created them.

    However, there is strong evidence that life originated in the ocean, when the perfect conditions coalesced and the first single-celled organism was born out of chemical and electrical reactions, and all life evolved from that, due to genetic mutations. The Earth has been around for 4 billion years, that is an unimaginably long time, and scientists have created artificial DNA and single-celled organisms that live for split seconds out of elements, water and electricity.

    Pretty neat, huh?

  • well for one, the theory about us originally coming from apes isn't accurate. We share the same family and the apes and use came from a common ancestor, but we didn't come from the ape itself. Quick example: look at families.. we have parents (the common ancestor), and then there are siblings.. one sibling has ___ genetic traits, while the other exhibits ____ genetic traits.. there are some similarities, but they aren't quite a complete genetic match up. (unless of course they are identical twins which would be different because they came from the same cell).
    obviously it's more complexed than that, but you get the idea.

    I suggest maybe checking out online evolution 101.. berskley? I believe made up a webpage with basic evolution details.
    a quick example of examples of evolution would be a virus.. you can clearly see in virus's the changes and adaptations and the evolution of virus a lot faster than you can the

  • evolution of man... (which again is obviously more complexed). it typically takes millions of years to see evolution take form.

    but you can see other examples of where evolution has made splits, when you look at a typical house cat vs a lion or a tiger for example. or the different species of birds, etc.
    We all however do share a common ancestor eventually, however it of course started small.

  • We came from this:

    Before that we were single cell organisms.  There were thousands of steps in between, as each generation with valuable traits reproduced and passed those on, while those not suited to surviving died without a chance to reproduce.  Several million years later, we have all the different species of animal life we see today, from mites to humans and everything in between.

  • If you take AP Biology, you will read an awesome book called "Your Inner Fish". If you are not planning to take AP Bio, get the book from the library.

  • read Bill Bryson's "A Short History of Nearly Everything" - it is a great book about science (all kinds not just evolution) written in interesting, easy to understand language (including the section on quantum physics).
