    If man evolved from ape, why don't we see apes turning into men now?

    Humans did not evolve from apes. Humans are a species of ape
    that evolved from ancestors common to other apes.

    Straw-man sound bites do not provide much of an argument.

    Maybe there was a limit? It seems to be working the other way around
    now. :)

    man did NOT evolve from ape

    it seems that 75% of people get this one wrong.


    evolution states simply that man and ape had a common ancestor...

    although on Usenet there is sufficient evidence to see man devolving to ape!

    My jokes require a certain amount of intellect to be be funny. Usually
    around an IQ of 70.

    Please don't encourage the use of emoticons, making them clever
    and/or funny should be the main method of identification.

    It was a poor joke fifty years ago when it appeared in an Archie
    comic. And it is just as spurious now as then.

    dude... If you have not seen the movie "Idiocracy", go get it now! You will
    laugh your ass off. It's about the de-evolution of our species. And it's a
    Mike Judge film (al-la King Of The Hill, Bevis and Butthead). But the movie is
    not animated.

    One walk through of the Museum of Natural Science in NYC will clear all that up!
    I just went a month ago, pretty impressive.

    Individuals never evolve. "Apes turning into men" would be metamorphosis,
    if it were to happen at all.

    .... and a missing link is just a gap between gaps in understanding ...
