1. If you take apart an engine and bury it in the ground for a few generations. When the later generation digs it back up and can't find one of the pistons, does that mean the engine never existed?
2. Abiogenesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
3. One of the processes of evolution is that subsequent generations of an animal change over time, eventually into another species. This does not mean that the original species does not stick around. In humans, the idea goes that there was a common ancestor of humans, chimps, and other apes, not humans evolving directly from chimps or apes.
Since you insist some one asnwer the questions and make your post look foolish, I guess I can do this.
Evolution deals with how life changes, not how it begins. That is a totally separate topic.life having to have begun somewhere,
Speciation is what you are talking about, and does not require one species to end and another to being, and in fact, one species can continue on and another species branch off. All that is required is geographic isolation. However, in the case of man, the last common ancestor with apes is Nakalipithecus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, which is in fact no longer around.and if we evolved from apes or monkeys, while are apes and monkeys still around?
I have listened to arguments from evolution deniers. It's like listening to libertatians speak on ideology and philosophy. It makes my head hurt. I regress and get urges to swing from a tree branch, and pick at my rear end as I eat a banana. btw, did you see where 'Boy' from the Tarzan movies passed away the other day?
From the ashes.

Which apes are you talking about? That's like saying that if you have blond kids and they have blond kids the fact that their kids may be blond also means that you were blond and couldn't have possibly been a brunette. That's not how genetics works. I'm going to be ultra-simplistic in this explanation but every single time a species reproduces it essentially plays Russian roulette with the genes. Some genes are passed down, some are not. The same happens on a wider scale with evolution. Hundreds of ape species have evolved through millions of years. Some have survived, others haven't. However all have common traits which prove that they couldn't possibly be unrelated.The question becomes; if we evolved from apes, how did every other transitional species die out but yet they remained?

List of transitional fossils - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These are just the ones found in the fossil record so far. Further, since evolution is a continuous process, every species is a transitional species.
Evolution deals with a process in nature involving living organisms. It requires life to exist to happen. Bio-genesis is a separate theory unrelated to evolution.Evolution has to include a beginning. Something to evolve from to start with.
Say huh what?The question becomes; if we evolved from apes, how did every other transitional species die out but yet they remained?
