The roots of humans and chimpanzees

Humans did not evolve from chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans, or any other living ape species. Rather we are all cousins, descendants of the same Hominid common ancestor.

The religious folks are about to be mad!

Nope, just amused that people are so gullible as to believe such nonsense.

Jon Helms 3 years

Jon What's nonsense? I'm more than happy to explain the actual science to address your problems with biology.

Kyle Nolan 3 years

Kyle Nolan Except you won't be using actual science, but speculation posing as science. While there are similarities, there is no way to test how those similarities arose.

Jon Helms 3 years

What's the other options? If you follow a religion it'll be speculation, particularly with the followers. Who knows exactly what the creators of the religions had in mind. For All we know it could be oversimplification so those lacking intelligence can have a less than basic idea of the world and universe. Other than religion and science, what are the options?

Everett Burkett 3 years

Everett Burkett It isn't religion vs. Science, it's religion vs. Scientific naturalism, which is a philosophy.

NO abracadabra here.

Not really. The account of creation does not exclude evolution. What I think is more irritating is that you guys seem to have a difficult time understanding that. Seems to be more trollish behavior.

Which account of creation? The Bible one?

Mike Sweeney 3 years

The Abrahamic. Judaism, Islam and Christianity.

Kaleb Keith 3 years

So those ones are all the same with Adam and Eve and the garden and god saying a few words here and there etc?

Mike Sweeney 3 years

Kaleb Keith I personally have zero problem with scientifically minded religious folks. If you have a more rational and evidence-based approach to your faith, then this post isn't directed towards you at all.

Kyle Nolan 3 years

Mike Many theologians interpret genesis as a parable representing the choice between responsibility and carelessness and the consequences of our actions.

But dude, comparative morphology and molecular phylogenetics prove that humans are a species of ape, and we can even use DNA and the fossil record to understand our evolutionary past.

Kyle Nolan 3 years

If a god does exist, and even if said god personally created humans, we are still a species of primate that evolved from a common ancestor with chimpanzees.

There is a transitional form missing in the image. The atheists/evolutionists are positioned in between the last two on the right.

Manuel Hooker

Australopithecus (4.5–1.977 Million years ago) Australopithecus afarensis Australopithecus anamensis Australopithecus africanus Australopithecus garhi Australopithecus sediba Paranthropus (2.7–1.2 Million years ago) Paranthropus aethiopicus Paranthropus robustus Paranthropus boisei Homo (2.1–0 Million years ago) Homo gautengensis Homo rudolfensis Homo naledi Homo habilis Homo georgicus Homo floresiensis Homo erectus Homo ergaster Homo antecessor Homo heidelbergensis Homo cepranensis Homo neanderthalensis Homo rhodesiensis Homo sapiens

Those guys?

Or is there still a "missing link"?

Kyle Nolan 3 years

Evolution is not some kind of vertical or linear transition/progression rather like a spider's web going in random directions so it would be folly to search for a missing link going by the linear or vertical progression assumption

Tonye Dennison 3 years

Kyle Nolan don’t worry because by your belief your feelings are just a trick of nature. What do you care what I think where you are positioned in the image? Your feelings have no consequence, you are a relatively soon expiring worthless machine.

where are all the common ancestors again? Notice that they are all blanks

They're extinct, and they left no known fossil remains, but we know they exist due to molecular phylogenetics.

surprised closed proximity and DNA mapping of proteins nucleotides is the base of this puzzle.. DNA bits are called Human-Accelerated Regions (HAR). HARs are present in our dead-and-gone relative (non coded DNA).. Recent revised research tells us our closest living relative clint genetic blueprint(Pan troglodytes) in comparison with human genome share 96 percent of our DNA, DNA of humans and mice is only around 60 percent similarity, more interesting is the question of whether the ARHGAP11B gene and human HARE5 do more than enlarge monkey brains. Changes in behavior and cognition as well, the reason y new medicinal testing research is on mice.. The researchers found out what ARHGAP11B did by putting it into transgenic mice to check smartness improvements, brain convolution research. It doubled the mice's cortical stem cells and increased their brain size it devoloped convolutions in brain. DNA sequences with chimps may hold the most promise for determining what creates human-specific traits such as speech.. İ accept right direction statement of Kyle Nolan we did not evolve from chimp(Pan troglodytes), gorilla, (Gorilla gorilla), and the orangutan, (Pongo pygmaeus).. We are searching science from existence, the word evolution is always checked with observational based tests.. İ believe 100 percent we coexisted with other creatures rather than this darwin observational nature stimulated evolution science.. İts better to think in this direction rather than all scientists finding emphasis assuming Darwin is correct and going in that mono direction.. M stereotypical life spans of animals are different and animals extincted with nature and consumption changes, some regenerated till end some did not. Food web concept is fine but evolution concept is wrong that's y we can never find answer in this wrong direction..

Darwin did not know about DNA but he was correct with his observations. DNA has merely validated Darwin's theory. In any case from what you are saying I think science fiction could become reality with movies like Deep Blue Sea where brain capacity is scientifically enhanced. We could make the breakthrough with chimps by altering a few things then Planet Of The Apes becomes reality

Tonye Dennison 3 years

my contents is results of research.. Darwin theory is approved by all caz After development of genetic science his prediction are close enough to proven science but that maynot mean his predictions are perfect.. Matching is different with mapping 100 percent. Reproducible science is proved science in my view and the content i have shared is that science.. Its true bro, fiction is thoughtful provocation in the movies that u have quoted they showed fiction caz results scientific showed brain convolutions.. İmplications they provocated in their fiction way.. İts not like i hate darwin but my view is like search for results assuming coexisted evolution that i quoted may give another variant of research

Prem Bailey 3 years

Just like there a varieties of fish We just happen to be the clever buggers in the ape family

Ken Alston

Totally agree. This is what critics of evolution don't understand so they are busy looking for a missing link

We also came from monkeys.

Scientists, if your a big believer of science has admitted they actually know very little because they cant see the big picture so all the get is mesurements & such from flawed instruments but dont really know what it all means !
The Universe & all the variables, is just to big
They also have come to realize what they have created had large adverse side effects on us, our environment, living creatures,,,ext

Science is an evolutive process. It doesn't need belief.

Soi Norris

Yes same as nuclear weapons, radio active oceans,,Cancer,, ext !
you dont have to believe it but they will kill you,,,, lol !
Totally different topic soi but i hear you !

Let's try to see whole picture.

Soi Norris

Theres no coming back from death soi & that is the picture ! If Scientists can admit it who are you to contradict them & everyone else ? No you have your own views & thats just fine but its not all about you !

Aaron Orozco 3 years

The whole picture means objectivity.

Soi Norris 3 years

How do you know there is no coming back ?

Soi Norris 3 years

LoL! Your nuts !

Yes.
