Quote# 2359

According to classic darwinism, humans evolved from the ape. That turned out not to be true, so according to neo darwinism, man and ape evolved from a common something.

Darwin's Lil' Girl

Um, no, not quite true. Humans DID come from apes, but modern apes and humans have a common answer. That is, of course, ignoring the fact that humans ARE apes. YOU FAIL!!!

This is kind of right. While modern apes look like their ancestors, ours looked like that too.

Attn, people commenting on this: humans are primates, but not apes. True.

Reference to the quote: I believe the word you are looking for is "ancestor".

I've read some theories about how hominids never actually lived in the trees and were always bipedal, but I never actually understood how that theory made sense, because Proconsul was certainly a tree-dweller, so we came down from the trees at some point.

rodents once we were, hell , where'd the monkey come from in the first place.

We're cousins of the apes, more like them than other mammals. I don't mind being classed with them. Better than Ferrets

or fundies

Yes, we are. We are great apes.

Anyway, this is correct. Duhr.

Correction: You, JohnR7, devolved from a common something. The rest of us evolved from a very special something, thanks very much.

Get your stinking logic off of me, you damned dirty fundie!

Julian for the win right out of the gate.
Clearly some apes are more intelligent than others.

I like the way he paints scientists' willingness to adapt their theories to new evidence as a bad thing.

We still evolved from apes, just not the ones that are alive today. Well, technically one you evolved from your parents (i.e. micro-evolution). In that case, I guess you could say the apes that you evolved from are still alive.

According to actual science, human IS an ape.

Darwin isn't half as important to ToE as you fundies think he is. He died many years ago, and much has been reveled since then. Mr Darwin would probably not recognize his Theory if he saw it today.
