Yes, we evolved from Apes.
No, we have not evolved in any shape or form, we are the same biological beings we have always been.
Yes, we did evolve, but i do not think we evolved from Apes.
In the fish, it swoops down to operate gills or whatever it is that it does in fish, and in fish it's perfectly sensible for the nerve to be where it is. Because humans (and all non-fish vertebrates) evolved from fish, that nerve has been distorted from it's original optimal fishy function.
You think matters of "stagnation" are significant to a blind process that only selects for what works in the here and now, and has no interest in the optimal because it's not an intelligent process, merely a statistical one?
That counts as a "why".
The vermiform appendix in humans is the relic of our ancestral past as animals that needed to ferment volumes of leafy substances. In humans it serves as a receptacle for bacteria and waste that has the unpleasant habit of swelling and exploding, and which killed up to 20% of the population in pre-medical times. Wonderful intelligent design, that, eh?
Even though I have a yes or no answer, I can't vote because I don't agree with the reasoning embedded in the options given.
No, we did not evolve from apes. Humans and apes both share a common ancestor.
Evolution is a fact, but it is all different fact for all different evolutionists:
-here we have the fact of humanoid forebears, - what can they be, nobody knows. Some passage, a ritual sign of a hand pointing to a thick mist, some humanoid (?) some forebears are there in the mist.Originally Posted by Korimyr the Rat
Here we have the fact of aliens. Who did genetically interfered with aliens, - nobody knows. Some passage, a ritual sign of a hand pointing to a thick mist, some aliens are there in the mist.Originally Posted by talloulou americanwoman.
Humans are apes, apes are human, we were and were are remaining to be apes. What ape? Can we see it? Or we have to fantasize it as all evolutionists do? here we have the fact of an ape, - what ape, nobody knows. Some passage, a ritual sign of a hand pointing to a thick mist, an unknown ape is there in the mist.Originally Posted by Lachean

Every evolutionist has his own theory, his own facts of evolution. I just went through a few pages and don’t feel like laughing any more. Evolution is a fact… all different fact for all different believers in evolution. Which one should I choose? How ever it is possible to conceive an idea that humans and apes are the same or have evolved from a common ancestor, whatever is the fantasized ancestor? I wouldn’t know. Evolutionists wouldn’t explain.Originally Posted by creativedreams
AND THAT MUST BE THE COMMON ANSESTOR:
How this idea about our common ancestor is ever different from the idea that my Blackberry has naturally, by itself evolved from Rikstelefone? I wouldn’t know. Evolutionists wouldn’t explain.
And nobody ever points to that mysterious ancestor, ape, and alien, "something like an ape", - I have to fantasize such all on my own. What if I cannot live by fantasies like evolutionists do? Then I guess I have to bear with all the personal attacks from evolutionists united, that is the only fact which is common for all of them besides the ability to sheer fantasies.
I chose the first option, but we didn't evolve from any modern apes. Apes and humans share a common ancestor.
He is saying:. After reading Origins of Life, with my background in chemistry and physics, it is clear evolution could not have occurred."
It is a simple basic sentence. And it is another proof that evolutionists cannot understand a simple sentence. I bet you have never tried to read Origins of Life, - it is all about evolution only. He is saying that evolution could not have occurred. Do you understand that? In the next quote he indeed addresses the question of genesis. It is clear he does not believe in evolution, and the less he believes in biogenesis. You are trying to read out what you want to read out, - it is common for evolutionists. And you are trying to make a big deal from a side note to the text while completly ingoring the text, - it is common for evolutionists.
I have been posting here for years and I know that only evolutionists use this disrespectful “no comprehende’’ pretence in order to avoid answering simplest questions. You don’t understand Smalley, you don’t understand pictures of the evolution of a phone, you don’t understand Origins of Life – this is a sure sign of an evolutionist. In a civilized society, if one does not understand something or is not sure one would ask for clarification, - but evolutionists do not belong to a civilized society. This “no comprehende” pretence is just a variant of ad hom, and I announced in the beginning that evolutionists do always desert to ad homs as to the only debate tactics they know. All I have to do is to count the ad homs,- Lightdemon, -one, Lightdemon -2, talloulou, - 3…
Oh, I am sorry, I already asked this question, I should stop proving 50 times in a raw that evolutionists do not understand simplest questions, - I should rather get used to that… get used, that ''no comprehende '' tactics...
get used, get used……

I don't really expect that you'll read those reports. You certainly won't accept them. And I've got little doubt that you'll be back later in this thread, or some other, claiming that no evolutionist has ever been able to link to just one observation of the phenomenon of evolution.

Whatever our origin, I would like to think that we are STILL evolving. But the process is so tedious and rejects are not eliminated quickly enough.
