How Many of you believe that we as Humans descended from some kind of Primordial Amoeba?
This is kind of hilarious. Never heard of it before, and of course I never believe it. I believe in Darwin Evolutionism, i.e. we as Humans descended from apes.
Well if you believe in the Theory of Evolution, then how did the apes get here?
not I. The big issue with that would ne where did the amoeba come from and then where did what the amoeba came from come from?
It's time to get on board with the rest of the world. The proof is in the fossil record, which anyone who took the time to study the science of anthropology would accept. I would not expect someone who never studied science to be able to understand through their own "common sense" and religious upbringing how it all works. Modern apes and humans share a common ancestor, but humans did not evolve from modern apes. Modern humans (there were very, very few in the beginning) evolved from an animal living 4-5 million years ago called the Ardipithecus. This creature had many evolutionary tracts, one of which led to the various species of early humans. Yes, there were once many different species of humans. By the time Homo Sapiens (today's humans) had evolved, there were still two more species of humans with whom our ancestors had to share the earth. One was the Neanderthal and the other was the Erectus. The erectus died out first, leaving the Neaderthals and the Sapiens to fight over the remaining hunting grounds during and Ice Age. 30,000 years ago, the last traces of Neanderthals seem to have disappeared, leaving the earth to modern humans. The greatest interaction between the two species seems to have taken place in the Levant, which may explain the Genesis tales of humans contending with human-angelic hybrids that could not be called humans. Stories could have been passed down for generations until written down. The "Great Flood" was probably a reference to the glaciers melting after 10,000 BC and the sea levels rising everywhere.
It depends what we consider to be human. Some people believe that some of us are not human and they treat them like animals.

If we came from apes, then should we not include then in our personal family tree?Some people like to investigate where they came from and they produce detailed ancestral diagrams to show others their lineage. These things make some people proud that they come from a particular "stock" of...

Couldn't there be something else besides apes that we descended from (assuming we did)?I've heard the possibilities of an ocean being, apes, and an as yet undiscovered common hominid ancestor. What about mermaids, for example?

Dinosaur Extinction?We hear that scientists believe that birds may be descended from dinosaurs - but if the dinosaurs were made extinct 65 million years ago how is it possible?
