Quote# 36921

"Monkeys and humans evolved from a common ancestor." Is part of your responds which you obviously didn't read before you posted it because if you did you would see you validate my point. If we both derived from the same source or ancestor then how do we differ so much? Did the current day monkey devolve and we evolved? Your right the common ancestor is dirt thats what God made everything from that is why everything goes back into the dirt when it dies.

Differ so much? I don't think so.

Face it, we have way more in common with monkeys than with dirt.

Again and again, posts that show that most evolution-deniers don't even understand the theory. I bet a large fraction of FSTDT is made up of quotes like this, because the site is just full of them.

What gives? It's really not helping their cause! If anything, posts like this show that science class needs to spend MORE time teaching kids about evolution.

Seperate paths lead to seperate destinations.

While some of said common ancestor went toward the hominids, some went toward Chimpanzees, among other various apes. Its not a matter of devolving or some form of evolution influenced by Highlander where there can be only one. By your logic, there should be no fish or protozoa either. By sound logic, which you seem incapable of, not every member of an earlier species goes along one well defined path. Through adaptive radiation, certain members of the same species become different depending on their needs. Our early ancestors needed to be bipedal, while others of their same species did not. Over time, they became increasingly different. Simple, stupid.

If all humans descended from Adam, why do we differ so much (in intelligence, race, culture)? Did you devolve and everyone evolve?

We all came from molecules, because everything goes back into molecules when they die.

So humans are taller than monkeys. Big deal!

Antichrist


Bullmastiff


French Bulldog

If both of these breeds had a common ancestor (the original bulldog)


how come they differ so much? Could it be because they were bred for different purposes? There's also the fact that the smallest tea-cup poodle's ancient ancestors were actually standard poodles. But for some reason you idiots won't accept dog breeding as any kind of evidence.

Could we be different because we evolved to fit different roles in the environment?

"everything goes back into the dirt when it dies."
That's because we are silicon-based life forms.

Your right the common ancestor is dirt thats what God made everything from that is why everything goes back into the dirt when it dies.

THEN WHY IS THERE STILL DIRT?!!!!!!!111111

Sorry. Always wanted to say that.

The best explanation is the monkeys are the ones who didn't learn to use their front paws to grip tools and weapons and we did.PSActually we become bug food, then bug shit, before we become dirt. You know, you may be on to something I know I a lot of people that I could believe came from bug shit.

That sounds suspiciously like an atheist comment.

No monkeys did not "devolve" they are well suited to their particular environment, we evolved to suit a different environment and that's why we are so different.

This is a classic case of "Learned about evolution from Pokemon".

Actually, he would get laughed out of a decent Pokemon tournament.

"Flareon and Jolteon evolved from a common ancestor". Is part of your responds which you obviously didn't read before you posted. If they both derived from the same source or ancestor then why do they differ so much? Did the current day flareon devolve and jolteon evolved? Your right the common ancestor is...
Wow. I can't manage to translate this stupidity into my pokemon analogy. You, sir, would win something, but I don't want to come close enough to you to grant it.

There's no such thing as "devolving." Good god

No. Just think of it that we are more evolved. Different species evolve at different rates and those rates are independent of each other.

if me and my cousin are both descended from my grandfather, then how come we look so different?

If the common ancestor is dirt, why didn't the mud between your ears evolve into a brain?

Is it at all possible for anyone here to post that Dilbert strip about evolution favouring monkeys?

How way, man, y're a fookin' idjeet, like. Y' divvn't have the slightest clue as to how the evolution works - y' knaa nothin', y' coont.

(Jack apologises for the pseudo-Geordie. He has been reading too many Chris Ryan books of late.)

Divergent Evolution. Simple enough answer for you?

Differ "much", having in common so much genetical stock?. You regard science in a shallow way.

>No. Just think of it that we are more evolved.

Hmm, as I totally suck at climbing trees, am afraid of heights and so evidently wouldn't last very long in the kind of environment where chimpansees are thriving, I'd say it's all rather relative.

So, please, don't say more, rather say different.
