If man evolved from monkeys, how come we still have monkeys?
According to scientists, it has always to been said, times without number, that humans evolved from some kind of chimpanzee, ape or monkey. Well, this hypothesis is seems unrealistic to me, but if you do believe in the big bang, you should also believe in evolution. So how come we still have monkeys, apes and chimpanzees that are not even evolving? Thanks!
Man and apes evolved from a common ancestor who was neither a man nor an ape. This proto-man was the ancestor of many different species some still successful, some not. We know this because our DNA is about 99% the same as our nearest living cousin the chimps.
Chimps have evolved into 2 species: chimpanzee and bonobo.
Thanks Besarien. But if our DNA is 99% same as Chimps', doesn't that mean humans evolved from Chimps? And I believe evolution should be a continual process, why did humans stop evolving?
Having 99% similar DNA doesn't mean we evolved from apes or apes evolved from us....it's just as Besarien said, there was a common ancestor that we AND apes evolved from. Another fun fact, it is said that our DNA is also similar to that of pigs.
We still have monkeys so that someone will vote for Trump.
Hahaha... That's funny.
One thing that amuses me about Trump, is how he got that rich.
Trump got his money from his father and from his dishonest "business" relationships.
Hmmm... No wonder he always talks about his money and spends it lavishly, since he didn't work much for it.
Evolution takes thousands if not millions of years, so every living organism on earth is continually evolving and changing slowly to adapt to the environment. If this has slowed down or appeared to have stopped, it's because humans have taken it upon themselves to enact their own change.
The reason human evolution has crept to a near standstill is because we are no longer changing ourselves to suit the environment but changing the environment to suit us.
Man did NOT evolve from monkeys! Why do you keep repeating this? ALL life came from evolution. You are the end result of the branch of life you started with. You have just evolved in your appearance to what you look like today. In the future, you may look very different and that will also be due to evolution.
Man and Chimps are two different species of animal that evolved from a common ancestor (probably something that resembled a small monkey, squirrel or opossum).
There were, however, several different species of humans. Homo Sapiens, Homo Neanderthal and Homo Erectus actually lived at the same time for a period. Homo Neanderthalensis went extinct 30,000 years ago, leaving modern humans to themselves. Bonobos and Chimpanzees today are the closest living relatives to homo sapiens. The proof is in the DNA. Comparing a human to a chimp is like comparing a Great White Shark to a Mako Shark.
