It is believed that monkeys and humans share a fairly recent common ancestor, not that humans evolved from monkeys.

It is believed that humans appeared due to a centric fuzion in chromosoms which led 48-->46

And note that chromosome number is not the exact way of classifying. For example: a pig(Sus scrofa) and a cat (Felis catus) has the same chromosome numbers(38 ).

Lol... Yeah, bacteria only have one chromosome so that is why it would be impossible for them to ever have meiosis. Can you believe i actually met a teacher that didn't know this?

i have read a book before which says that between primates and man lies the missing link and that 'missing link' answers the link between the evolution of man...

it could either be the missing link that linked between primates-missing link-man or man-missing link-primates....

I've read it also...by the way, if we imagine the missing link...is it like a hybrid of primates and humans??? :lol:
