Evolution. . Question: If humans evolved from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys? Humans did not evolve FROM monkeys. We evolved from a Common Ancestor.


Question: If humans evolved from monkeys,
then why are there still monkeys?
Humans did not evolve
FROM monkeys. We evolved
from a Common Ancestor.
In the begginging:
This is a single cell.
At some point, the cell copied itself to form two cells.
However, the second cell (grey) came out different in
some way. It had a mutation.
The mutation allowed the second cell to eat pink
food, something the original cell could not do.
O The white cell, however, can still only eat yellow food.
When the yellow food one day begins to disappear from the
environment, suddenly this mutation is critical to the survival
of the grey cell survival.
This is what we call Adaptation.
This adaptation continued to happen with all life as it spread
into new environments. Over thousands of generations and
millions of years, these adaptations accommodate until life looks
very different from when it started, with only the most well
adapted species surviving.
This process is known as:
Natural Selection
A similar process happened with man.
The traditional image that represents the evolution of
man is this:
However, this process is more accurately conveyed through a
different, slightly more complex image:
Approximate DNA similarity to humans:
Now Extinct
Now Extinct
Now Extinct
Now Extinct
Now Extinct
V Now Extinct
Now Extinct
i Now Extinct

Unfortunately, these guys just didn' t make it to the present =
So while we have a common ancestor with monkeys, we didn' t
evolve from them directly, if anything we evolved with them.
Thank you for reading.

oversimplified version of a very complex process If you are intrigued or want to learn more then head

Well you see. Due to modern advances in technology and the fact that I am a head researcher who was given a team of the brightest minds on the planet along with a 50 trillion dollar budget we have been able to confirm the truth. After years of research we have came across something never thought to exist in Cinnamon Toast Crunch, a substance know as: Glucose.

Actually, no-one really knows how the neanderthals became extinct. They had larger brains than us and may have possibly been smarter than us. They could run faster, were stronger than us, and had society and culture, much like we had, and have.

Now, violence may have contributed to the extinction of course, but there are other hypotheses' out there such as climate change, and a rather strange interbreeding hypotheses.

They are often portrayed as being stupid, or lesser than Homo Sapiens, but in fact, it was most likely the other way around. The more you know.
#450 to #12 - rennat (08/16/2012) [-]
Actually, the larger brain didn't contribute to a higher intellect. All of the cave systems discovered with bones of neanderthal man had the simplest forms of tools and never developed permanent dwellings. An analyses of their skulls showed that they lacked chins and thus would have been unable to communicate with any words, and no written word or any type of symbols have been discovered to indicate that they would have developed the written word. More likely, the increased cranial capacity allowed for a more complex understanding of migration patterns and hunting techniques, but they didn't survive long enough to develop higher level thought processes. And a recent discover uncovered that many people of European descent shared many genes associated with neanderthal man and is becoming more widely acknowledged that they likely interbred into cro magnon man, as well as larger tribes disbanding and dying from starvation due to a lack of available heat and food. I really like anthropology.

Yeah but if somebody believes a book that was written 2000 years ago, then rewritten and changed languages and then rewritten and then rewritten again etc. chances are they aren't going to listen to logic
#517 to #502 - careyious (08/16/2012) [-]
Well, strictly speaking science does change very often as we realise how little we actually understand about the universe. Like we used to think that the entire universe revolved around the Earth, but then Galileo proved that the Earth revolves around the sun instead, we literally changed the entire model of the universe. Or when the fundamental of the atom (meaning indivisible), was proven to be made of even smaller sub-atomic particles. I feel like science's best trait over pure faith, is that we are willing to change when we are proven to be wrong, whilst most faiths have issues changing.
#564 to #517 - ukellisuae (08/16/2012) [-]
I understand what you mean but 'science' as whole can adapt and accepts that it is wrong. People who read religious books on the other hand just say things like, god works in mysterious ways or take the spirit of the quote not word for word. Then claim its all perfect.
User avatar #528 to #517 - tylosaurus ONLINE (08/16/2012) [-]
Well it's totally not like christians and other people who could not believe the world was round killed people for such statements. No, no. Rather listen to an old man telling about his fantasy friend called God.

Science does not change by the way.
#588 to #528 - careyious (08/16/2012) [-]
Well, when I say science, I do mean our understanding of the universe, rather than the laws of the universe. I did assume most people would correctly interpret what I said, but I accept people do perceive things differently.
User avatar #593 to #588 - tylosaurus ONLINE (08/16/2012) [-]
People perceive it as you write it. You just failed to write what you meant properly and of course it's followed by me being thumbed now. Lawl.

Yeah those are called paradigm shifts, rewriting the bible to be pro-monarchy like the bishops bible clearly shows that the true message is twisted to an agenda and is not paradigm shifting, it's just a means of controlling people.
