this is going to start a debate but. i think we come from apes.

Posted by   + Show Post

so you all will continue to call me crazy, and that's okay....i don't believe that we came from god, because i don't believe in him.

i've got this show on about mermaids, some will say they aren't real, and i'm just believing what i hear on tv...but watch it, and you will see why i am so freaked out right now....if these things are real, they are freaky looking, scared the living crap out of me....i mean if you actually watch and listen to the tv show, you will see where i am coming from.

it's a two hour show, but back in 2004-05, these boys were on the beach, and they found something, that looked like it had a hand...

just watch it.

it's called mermaids: a body found.

Why are there wolves and dogs, or different breeds of dogs? Why are there toads AND frogs? Or different kinds of birds or turtles? Common ancestor, but different species adapted differently and can coexist.

Saw the show, thought it was strange.



As for the ape thing. If we came from apes. Why are there still apes,monkeys etc??

Humans are more closely related to modern apes than to monkeys, but we didn't evolve from apes, either. Humans share a common ancestor with modern African apes, like gorillas and chimpanzees. Scientists believe this common ancestor existed
5 to 8 million years ago. Shortly thereafter, the species diverged into two separate lineages. One of these lineages ultimately evolved into gorillas and chimps, and the other evolved into early human ancestors called hominids.

I want to believe god exsists and also believe we came from apes. Can I believe in both at the same time? And ya I do believe the mermaid thing. Have you seen some of the things that come from the deep?

if you think about it, and actually sit and think about it......they were the only animals that walks s traight up on two legs..had skulls that look like ours and etc....just because we came from apes doesn't mean that they need to be gone.

also, they are right, we have webbed like hands and etc...in between toes and fingers they are webbed.

If dogs came from wolves, why are there still wolves?
There's no need for the ancestor species to die out or not continuing evolving.

We do still evolve. Humans are changing every day. We are taller than we were even only 100 years ago. Organs that used to be necessary like the appendix are no longer needed at all. Other organs such as the spleen, tonsils, and gall bladder are still used by the body to a degree, but are easily lived without. 

Evolution is still happening.

Why dont we still evolve? I believe in mermaids but i believe in god as well

We are still evolving. It just is a really long process which is why you don't see it.

The whole idea that evolution is somehow bad is pretty much just an American one. The rest of the world manages it fine.
