    What did you learn in school, then? Egypt's education must be inferior.

    First of all, our relation to Old World Monkeys goes quite far back (>20 mya). What you are thinking of are chimpanzees and gorillas, which are not monkeys but apes. We diverged from chimpanzees
    around 7 mya, right around when Sahelanthropus tchadensis lived. From which genus did Sahelanthropus evolve? Likely Dryopithecus or Oreopithecus and other suspensory apes.

    It was a joke, because he asked what is illogical about evolution.

    As for education in developing countries being inferior, that is obvious, I doubt you needed a random post from a random person to infer that.

    I'm so totally impressed by your post. No fish, huh? So where did Dryopithecus evolve from?

    Sure, there's fish, you just have to go back an extra 400 million years.

    Hominoidea likely evolved from the Oligocene Anthropoids such as Parapithecus, Propliopithecus, Adapidium, and Aegyptopithecus. Propliopthecus and Aegyptopithecus are generalized catarrhines and thus are the best examples of ancestors for all later anthropoids.

    A million or 400 million, it's all the same to me. But thanks.
