Charles Darwin believed that apes evolved from earlier, more primitive species, which in turn evolved from even earlier species.

Asked in Holidays and Traditions, Shopping
Where did black Fridays start?
Black Friday is the day after the American Thanksgiving, it is the beginning of the Christmas shopping frenzy and is believed to be the busiest day of retail sales of the year. There is nothing supernatural about the day, it is simply a day given up to rampant consumerism and the perpetuation of greed. As companies struggle to get their "share" of the profits stores have been opening earlier and earlier making the lives of their employees more and more difficult. Anyone who has ever worked in a store on that day will attest to the "black"-ness of it.
