    Evolution: Did we really evolve from Apes?

    If your Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Sihk, Athiest, Agnostic, whatever, i want to hear your opinions on Evolution. Did it occur? If so, are we the biologically enhanced version of Apes, changed over thousands of years of evolution? Or did it not happen at all. Does it have any scientific basis? Or did a being from a greater source place us here?

    Whats your opinions?

    Re: Evolution: Did we really evolve from Apes?

    I'm Germanic Pagan.

    I believe in the theory of evolution, though not necessarily abiogenesis. I do not believe that the gods created humanity; I believe that creation myths are symbolic representations of the gods' role in shaping our ancestors' development from our humanoid forebears into the precursors of the tribes that crafted our mythology.

    I remain completely open to the idea that we may have been genetically interfered with by aliens. I find it hard to readily buy into the idea that there was a natural progression/evolution from ape to human sans interference of some sort.

    A two percent difference in the DNA makes a human or chimp

    The evidence for the fact of evolution is overwhelming. The detailed theory of natural selection is constantly being updated... as are all scientific theories.

    The creationist/intelligent design movement has so thoroughly imploded that they really don't know where to turn at the moment... except to obscure web sites, silly YouTube productions, and Christian theme parks.

    For a light-hearted, but damning series on creationists you might want to check out "Why People Laugh at Creationists" on YouTube:

    Well have they found a definitive common ancestor yet or do they still just believe there was one?

    I read recently that our ancestors weren't as ape like as previously believed:

    Human ancestors 'less ape-like' - Telegraph

    Why our ancestors couldn't ape chimps - Science, News - The Independent

    You do realize you can believe in evolution while also questioning a common ancestor between apes and men?

    Precisely, in fact we did not evolve from modern apes, we have a common ancestor with them. That ancestor was also an ape, as are we. "Ape" just means homonid.
