Do humans and apes really look like each other?

Updated on September 21, 2009

Still Evolving.

Humans an Apes really do look alike:

People like to color pictures with animals; birds, cats, horses, dogs, lions, parrots. All of the animals seem so cute in the pictures. Although small amount of people call monkeys cute and sweet, they’ve never looked to see how similar they really are to us; humans. The more we try to figure out why they look like us and behave like us, the more mixed our feelings get. And we don't know what to believe. But, I believe that it’s true, monkeys do look like us and act like us. We share a lot more with them than most humans can believe possible. Is this more than just a coincidence? Human DNA and Primate DNA are so close that it’s almost scary. Pan Troglodytes Chimpanzees along with other primates share 98% DNA with Homo-Sapiens.

Like I’ve said, we have many things in common with primates, besides our genetic makeup. We smile like them; we cry like them, we communicate in almost the same way, with the use of body language. The only difference in the way we communicate is that our minds have developed/evolutionized so that we can create languages and hold conversation. We play like them, we eat like them, we raise our offspring the same; always looking out for them, and making sure that they don’t get in harms way. We also relate to apes in survival skills, with the fact that we walk on two legs, find food, and prepare it in ways that its edible. How else do we relate to apes? There are so many ways that humans and primates are almost identical, that it is crazy for people not consider the theory of evolution.

So, how did Evolution happen? Is it really apes and total dictatorship? Apes and War on the world? What about New World Order? Apes and Fear after 9-11? Think for yourself about the Apes and the awakening? The awakening, where we question everything; we question ourselves, other people, with our minds. Who knew? It’s really simple but are we all human? Shouldn't we still be developing in to humans? Space, the world is in Space. Where is our technology taking us? Back to the time of the ancient Egyptians, because it seems that they had more technology then than we do now. What about freemasons and apes? We developed a personality ego, we developed it very fast. What does time mean to you? How do we survive the real world now? Who really knows? Maybe the apes know something, or they and we are still developing into something more, since our DNA is 98% the same.

Was Egypt the end for apes? Were we mixed some how with the aliens? Can we somehow be connected with the aliens that may or may not have come down during the ancient time of the pyramids? What do you believe happened? There are reptilians. Illuminati, and different bloodlines. Also, there are Serpents and wasps. This could have happened in all different countries, England, Europe, And then we get on the topic of Egypt, which had better technology and a better civilization in the ancient times then we have now.............

Apes and Humans:

Here is a skeleton of a human and a primate side by side.  Are they not almost identical in structure?

Look at the way we've developed, and the way the primate has developed? Isn't it scary?

Look at this baby monkey, look at the hands, are they not the same as the hands of humans? Look at the ears, the structure of the face and the facial hair. They are all similar to those of humans.  Even the traits of this baby monkey, which I believe

This monkey is playing with a baby tiger, as we would play with a kitten.  This cannot be a coincidence.

      We and apes have the same common ancestors,We didn't evolve from mokeys which We know.

      But looking at pictures ,behaving of animals,their morality, reading books providing facts how People cant belive in evolution ? Sorry I don't want insult anybody(all have right to have their own opinion) but besides taking their knowledge from Bible , all looks like with Galileo, even that he observed(you couldn't take a picture and show people hes proof like its now the same with evolution) you cant just take a picture of evolution as a proof.But you can describe it as theory(in science theory= providing facts ,theory in science means not just like in free language - speculations)

      It was the whole world agains one man who was put to jail for saying the truth, disagreed with the one from the Bible.

      I don't want to attack religion but ironically she is on our way to understand the world better.

      Hope People wont get angry for my post,but instead they try to read more about the fact what I tald.

      Btw I found this site cause I was look for human like ape pictures :) and here You have funny one and giving to think picture .

      no one really knows where humans evolved from it is a proven fact that scientist are still studying and back tracking to find out where humans evolved from also apes and humans do share similar trates but we aren't made up of ape species humans have there own category just like cats, dogs, and fish etc etc....

      Most larger mammals look human like when you stand their skeletons on their hind legs.

      apelike creature that existed long ago and does not exist now."

      what creature is this so for each species that evolved there is an intermediate species that dies out? Or is this just for humans? When did this creature become extinct? I don't know if you are anthropology savy but the anthropologists at the amnh always get stuck and they can never clearly prove any of this evolution junk. no offense

      I don't think the theory is that we evolved from the apes that we know today, but from an apelike creature that existed long ago and does not exist now. The baby ape seems to be wearing nail polish.

      We are very similar but we are also similar to homo eractus

      but we didn't evolve from them either. i don't think we evolved at all.

      i believe that if we came from apes then why aren't they still evolving to human

      Clearly and succinctly written. We're not done evolving yet. The opposable thumb has been a disaster, in evolutionary terms, for the planet, though. I've played that chimp at chess before, incidentally. He misleads you with his looks, but plays the game like Bobby Fisher.

      I think WE look more like Them!!...It's amazing how similer we are and how intetligent they are!

      I am very interested in how they are working on communicating with apes with sign language and other communication techniques..
