Evolution

Some people believe in evolution and that we evolved from Apes. Well, my question is if we revolved from apes, then how come there are still apes in the world? Wouldn't they have evolved into humans too?

  • I think the actual point is that we evolved from the same lineage as apes, not that we evolved from apes themsleves. Just think of it that humans and apes are siblings from the same set of parents who turned out rather differently.

  • I have wondered that as well. Also, if evolution is true...why are we (humans) not still evolving?

  • if they were given the same circumstances they would've evolved too, but they stayed in the relative area, and the ones that migrated are the humans.......that's my best guess.
    I do believe in evolution.

  • from one anonymous to another..I can bvelieve whatever I want. I do believe in creationism. I also believe over millions of years species have evolved . Evolution is proven fact. What is NOT proven is Ape to MAN. And to the other rocket scientist who asked why isnt man not still evolving. We are. Can you say neandertal..just because you cant see it doesn't mean it isn't happening. The earth is rotating..but do you feel it spinning. Get a grip on some education people.
