The answer to that question has to be given in two steps. First, you have to identify which type of evolution you are referring to. If you mean micro evolution (change within a species), the answer is easy.
God designed changes with in the human genome. He intended for red hair and blond, brown and gray. Haven't you heard the song, "Red and Yellow, Black and White. . . They are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world." No matter if you are big small, fat or tall, we are all still humans. Micro evolution is something that God made because He loves variety.
If you are talking about Macro evolution (Change between species), the answer is even more easy. There has never been any evidence of humans coming from anything but a human parent. There is simply never been any Macro evolution.
Neanderthal was not a lesser link. His brain case is larger than ours. He is just human with big brow ridges. Incidentally, did you know that brow ridges continue to protrude with age. Neanderthal was an old guy with a big brain.
As far as the other "links" that have been complete hoaxes or have disappeared with no evidence left, they were not human.
Evolutionists need to explain why they will not even consider a fair academic debate on why there is certainly as much evidence against Macro Evolution as there is for it. Ever seen the documentary "Expelled"? I would love to see you explain that.
