It becomes increasingly obvious with new scientific discoveries that human beings share common ancestry with chimpanzees. Unfortunately that "common ancestor" has not yet been located. I think Ehtesham is a little confused. The Bible clearly states that God created Adam in the Garden of Eden in a spiritual world; not the temporal Earth on which we live. Such is why when his decendants (Noah's family) arrived on Earth after the Great Flood, there were two races of people...Adam's line were "pure blood" relatives who could be traced back to Adam. Hu'mans were the people already on the Earth upon Noah's arrival. Hu'man literally translates to "animal or creature with potential to become divine." It is possible that the Hu'man race evolved from a common ape ancestor, before the races bred with each other, dilluting the two races into the single species we have today. I recommend that anyone interested in this question start their research with the book, "The Ark of Millions of Years."
