People did not evolve from apes. Humans and apes have a common ancestor. No theory of evolution states that humans evolved from apes.
If we're evolving and evolved from monkeys or apes then why is there still monkeys and apes. We did not evolve from apes or monkeys. We branched off a common line. Humans did not evolve from apes. Humans and apes had a common ancestor . Apes evolved in one direction and we evolved in another. We probably looked a lot alike at first.
Yes he is wrong because if we evolved from apes, apes would still be turning into humans.
No. All he said was that humans and apes have a common ancestor.
People are believed to have evolved from apes, millions of years ago.
They are mammals, they are not monkeys but similar. They have no tails, they are pretty smart, there are different species of apes such as gorillas, orangutan's and chimpanzees and some people believe that we evolved from apes and some people don't.
Considering humans and apes share 98% of their DNA, it is highly probable that we evolved from apes. Althoug humans may have evolved from apes, it is more likelt that we are both descended from a common ancestor.
Charles Darwin believed that apes evolved from earlier, more primitive species, which in turn evolved from even earlier species. Ultimately, all mammals, including the apes and humans, evolved from the first mammal species, which in turn evolved from earlier species, and so on back to the beginning of life on Earth.
They evolved from apes
Humans evolved from apes. So Apes came first.
Well people say that humans evolve from monkeys but life on Earth has evolved through billions of years through small microorganism's. Also humans didn't evolve from apes, we evolved from a common ancestor but we just evolved in a different way to apes due to environment e.g. food, predators etc
The human species evolved from apes. Chimpanzees are a type of monkey, and the major differences between monkeys and apes is that monkeys have tails and apes do not. For example, the gorilla is an ape and it does not have a tail. In the same way, humans do not have tails either.
we evolved from apes, unless the aliens put us here. In which case, it was by spaceship.
Humans are in fact, apes so in a sense we do give birth to apes.
Humans did not evolve from apes. We share a common ancestor with apes. If you are talking about why the public rejected the idea that we evolved from apes back when the theory was proposed, it was because the public thought we were to "superior" to have evolved from such a "primitive" animal.
Millions of years ago, there was a species that is the common ancestor of apes and humans. The range of that species was split somehow. One part of the population evolved into humans. The other part evolved into apes. Hence, the apes and monkeys that are alive today are not our direct ancestors, but our evolutionary cousins.
We have a common ancestor.We evolved from apes, that's why we are classified as apes today.Apes evolved from monkeys, that makes apes a type of monkey.Therefore humans are a type of monkey.We are also a type of verterbrate, simian, mammal, great ape etc etc etc Humans are NOT a type of monkey but are a type of ape. apes and monkeys are both primates and have a common but apes are not monkeys, apes didnt evolve from monkeys either but share a relatively recent common ancestor. humans are apes.
No. His theory stated that man and apes have a common ancestor.
We come from an intelligent chimpanzee like species that has evolved over time. We are not apes
Some apes *are* humans - notably all humans, since they are descended from apes. But evolution is not a ladder: it is a branching tree. While some apes evolved to become humans, other lineages of ape went in other directions, and became chimps, bonobos, gorillas, and so on.
I think it did happened. My teacher says it a theory that humans evolved from apes. My mother said it's a fact. Everyone has their opinions.
apes apes to be fair if we did evolve from apes then why are they still alive shouldnt they have died of ages ago! :)
Man did not originate from apes per se, rather we share a common ancestor with them. This is a common misconception about evolution. Humans evolved to fit their environment, apes evolved to fit theirs.
Men, just like chimpanzees, are apes. Now substitute chimpanzees for man, and you'll see why the question is based on an misunderstanding of what common descent means: why are there still apes if chimpanzees evolved from apes?Evolution produces diverging lineages - but each lineage remains part of the group it descended from. Chicken are still birds; birds are still dinosaurs; humans are still mammals - but not every bird is a chicken; not every dinosaur has been a bird; not every mammal is human.Another way of rephrasing the question would be this: why are there still Europeans if Americans descended from Europeans? Or: why do you have cousins if you descended from your grandparents?
