I wasn't there personally, but as I mentioned, there is a new theory that came out a couple of years ago that says the "man's best friend" relationship goes back a lot farther.


As you can see from these articles, there is a lot of debate going on about this question.

I didn't realize this was in debate. This stuff is very interesting though.

There is no evidence that we evolved from apes.
There is evedence that we came from one common ancestor human.

Try fossils and genetic evidence, for starters. I think we've covered both topics here rather extensively, especially the genetics.

To stay on the subject
this was the question

My answer: no
CoolJay221,
we did not come from apes
that is my opinion because there is no scientific evedence to the contrary.

It's funny, someone actually made a thread specifically about the Intelligent design debate, and nobody posted in it. lol
