        The Tyrannosaurus Monkey is not mentioned in the bible.  Do you need any further proof that the bible is the true word of God, and rubbishness is the evil work of freemasons.

      Quoting from larryjzimmerman.com:
      "The first group of mammals that we think fits Matt Cartmill's definition of primate is the family Petrolemuridae, found in the early Paleocene of Asia."

      However, using Google I couldn't find any images of Petrolemuridae, any indication of how many fossils from this family have been discovered, or how the fossils were dated.

    There is actually almost no information about where chimpanzees (our closest genetic match--closer than a zebra and a horse!) evolved from. Pre-human remains are few and far between, and few paleontologists agree on dates and species that led to us.

      While there is some truth to this statement, I also think it somewhat mis-leading. While they do say that all of the pre-historic humanoid remains found thus far would hardly fill the back of a pickup truck, to say that this is "almost no" information would be similar to saying there is "almost no information" given by a compass other than the direction of north. wink

      I think most paleantologists (and almost more importantly now geneticists) at least agree that we share common ancestry with the chimpanzee (the direction of north) though the exact mapping of the entire tree may never be fully established with certainty.

      What are you expecting exactly - A written statement from a certified pre-human?

  5. jonaitis profile image83
    jonaitisposted 8 years ago

    Sorry for the vagueness of my reply--from my sources ("The Human Odyssey" by Tattersall, and Bryson's "A Short History of Nearly Everything")

    "For the first 99.99999 percent of our history as organisms, we were in the same ancestral line as chimpanzees. Virtually nothing is known about the prehistory of chimpanzees, but whatever they were, we were."

    Australopithecines emerged from the tropical forests of Africa 7 million years ago and entered the Savannah--this is the first differentiation from ape to the biped that we are today. There is no agreement on whether we evolved in a linear fashion from apes or if several biped lines emerged and homo sapiens--because of our large brains--were able to survive for the greatest duration. We are poor fossilizing material and have not lived long enough--only a few million years--to leave a good trail of fossils to study. The geographic locations of fossils confounds things even further. A lot more could be said about this.

    I hope that clears things up further--yes we evolved from chimps, no I don't need a statement from a "certified pre-human" (what is that anyway??) confirming that--but our knowledge of the specifics of our own evolution is hazy at best.

      Earthscribeposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Precisely! Good point on a very misunderstood difference.

      I found this in that regard:

      "Comparisons of DNA show that our closest living relatives are the ape species of Africa, and most studies by geneticists show that chimpanzees and humans are more closely related to each other than either is to gorillas. However, it must be stressed that humans did not evolve from living chimpanzees. Rather, our species and chimpanzees are both the descendants of a common ancestor that was distinct from other African apes. This common ancestor is thought to have existed in the Pliocene between 5 and 8 million years ago, based on the estimated rates of genetic change. Both of our species have since undergone 5 to 8 million years of evolution after this split of the two lineages. Using the fossil record, scientists attempt to reconstruct the evolution from this common ancestor through the series of early human species to today's modern human species."

    My understanding of what people theorize is that if you look at the evolution of organisms we all come from some original batch of something that would eventually evolve into a bunch of other somethings that would eventually lead to what we are now.

    You can imagine each type of something (mammals, fishes, birds, etc) all being their own branch steaming off of this original something.  These main branches, for the most part, still exist - but the smaller branches on these branches have gone extinct and whatnot.  So I think what scientists say with much certainty is that we on the same branch as chimps, other apes, and monkeys.

    I was sitting here pondering, that why in the world would monkeys be the first thing on the planet? Who put them here? Did they magically appear? Who did they evolve from a fly? I thought vegetation was the first thing placed on the planet? So if this were true then wouldn't we have all evolved from plants? But then who did the plants evolve from? I myself can not comprehend how we as humans, with so much complexity, could have evolved from anything. just my thoughts.

    The monkey evolved from the same root animal that humans evolved from.  We deed not evolve from apes that has been gotten wrong for many years.  Apes and humans evolved in parallel lines from the same creature.
    I was watching a PBS special last night that shows that most animal life evolved from creatures emerging during the Cambrian Explosion.

        They evolved from earlier animals. Although there is evidence building that the Cambrian explosion was no more or less "explosive," than previous or later eras. The best argument I have heard is that the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere that had built up by that time had reached the point where it was possible for larger, more complex animals to evolve.

        All life started from once cell creatures about 3.75 billion years ago.  I don't remember and couldn't spell the name of creatures.  The Cambrian Explosion occurred about a a half billion years ago and just about all present life can trace genetics back to that event.
        Changes in the planet and life's continual effort to improve itself through natural selection and evolution created the variations from the Cambrian Explosion including the variation called humanity.

    The Monkey's Disgrace
    My mom reminded me of this poem:

    Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree
    Discussing things as they are said to be.

    Said one to the others, "Now listen, you two,
    There's a rumor around that can't be true
    "That man descended from our noble race
    "The very idea is a great disgrace.

    "No monkey has ever deserted his wife
    "Starved her babies and ruined her life
    "And you've never known a mother monk
    "To leave her babies with others to bunk

    Now quit ya monkeying around you lot !

    "Or pass from one on to another
    "Till they scarcely know who is their mother.

    "Here's another thing a monkey won't do
    "Go out at night and get on a stew.
    "Or use a gun or club or knife
    "To take some other monkey's life.

    "Yes, man descended, the ornery cuss
    "But, brother, he didn't descend from us."

        Yep! The population in 2008 was  6,706,993,152, so to give the zealots their due, their chance of being right are more than  6 million to one against being the owner of the truth.

                There are thousands of websites to expose the evils of Freemasons. Some of them are here for you to click and get enlightened.

    Why don't you guys try something novel like read the material on these sites yourself and then summarize your position on it instead of trying to outpost each other. Posting links does not advance the topic. More missing links would be preferable.

    As a vaguely related aside, John Bunyan wrote the Pilgrim's Progress (while in gaol). It is a far better read than almost any of the Bible, except possibly Luke's gospel, Song of Solomon and some of the Psalms. Wonderful book. It doesn't mean you have to believe it though. Literature and truth are not linked.

    I have tears of laughter running down my face after visiting your so called proof!
    Conspiracy theorists sites that had me howling with laughter, and a couple of religious sites that do nothing to prove anything, just propagating the same regurgitated quotes and "Proofs" Nothing independent here. The vested interest of your sources of proof is there for all to see. Fail.
    Like asking the maker of a car if it is the best buy! Hilarious, please continue with this entertainment. You sir, are a riot! smile smile

        To be honest Panda Man I think we both find it hard to not feel outrage when religious or other endorsements include hate and loathing for fellow humans.... just my feelings about it.
