A question about evolution

Recommended Posts

If the human race has evolved from monkeys/apes-why are there still primative monkeys to this day??? The same thing goes for all other forms of life actualy;Us humans have evolved SO much over time into the super inteligent beings that we are(except for big brother contestants)and yet there are forms of life today that havnt evolved much at all over millions of years:huh:

And no im not a religeous/creationist wierdo!

We haven't evolved from monkeys and apes; rather we share a common ancestor with them. Monkeys and apes have branched off the evolutionary tree a little earlier than humans. Lower forms of life have branched off correspondingly earlier.

The primates evolved depending on the conditions where they were at the time. Those who adapted, or suited the conditions already, survived. Same with the big cats and such. Darwin explained it in his writings.

Ok ok Youve got me there.

I never risk the lives of the whelk population.

I wouldn't worry about it, the whelks are safe. Grahame will read this thread anyway whether you snitch on me or not.

or is it simply that all life simply shares the same biological building blocks ?

does that therefore mean we all followed the same tree ?
