If humans evolved from fish or chimpanzees, why are there still fish and chimpanzees?


Many scientists agree that man evolved from fish or chimpanzees. If that is the case, why are there still fish and chimpanzees. Why are there not stages of evolution going on now? There may be a fish/monkey anomaly but evolution suggests a process. I'm thinking of caterpillar to a butterfly. What do you think?

    Thank you Mike! Well thought out and organized. It is difficult for me to recognize the difference between German Shepherds and some wolves. Not that I've looked that closely.

    Well Melissa, Garafalia, Meg, Emily, Jeremy, and Jonathan, my dilemma is selecting best answer. I personally agree with Emily because I believe the Bible. The interesting about evolution it that everyone has their own version. Hp picked Melissa!

    Thank you phriot ... especially for the civil tone. I asked specifically about humans, chimps, and fish because I had read/heard about those theories. In school we did spend time going through the neanderthal, cromagnon, and ? (name escapes me).

    Earth is mentioned in Genesis 1:1, but don't take any of it too literally. Remember the wisdom -- the letter kills, but the spirit of the word brings life. Only humility (an empty cup) will allow you to learn the wisdom hidden in the Bible.
