Maybe its not a religious thing for me so much as it is I’d prefer to not think that we used to be damn apes. Why are there still apes if thats true? Why are there no half ape/human remains?
First, no one ever claimed that we evolved from a specific ape species. We have a common ancestor and there are many fossils.
Human evolution generally refers to the evolutionary history of primates and in particular the genus Homo, including the emergence of Homo sapiens as a distinct species of hominids (“great apes”).
How in the heck did a 6 ton, flesh eating, roaring dinosaur turn into a 8 ounce, singing, happy, vegetarian bird? Or is there all this pent up rage and desire to hunt in the birds I have in the next room??
In those days there were 6 ton and also much smaller dinosaurs. The 6 ton dinosuars most likely died from a terrible calamity, but the smaller dinos survived, some which evolved into birds.
You feed those birds of yours a few grubs or worms and see how carnivorous birds are. I used to run 100 chickens and when we had swarms of carpenter ants you could clearly see their hunting skills. They probably saved our cabin from being destroyed by these wood eating ants.
Why haven’t sharks or alligators evolved? Surely they aren’t at the peak of their performance, I see plenty of room for improvement in their cases. People cry evolution but when you ask them to explain cases like birds and sharks and countless other species they reply, well they don’t need to.
Sharks are an ancient species that are perfectly adapted to their environment, the ocean.
Evolution of a Super Predator. Sharks are one of evolution’s most enduring success stories.

Oh, alright then Mr/Mrs Scientist that explains it perfectly, they were asked but they didn’t feel like it.
Seems I have seen this post before, perhaps on another forum. The phrase “damn apes” rings a bell. You were already asked why you would be so presumptuous to use that phrase. All species of apes are a marvel of evolution.
edit: Yes you have asked here before under the name “awisemanoncesaid” (post#12), but apparently not learned nor researched anything on your own. Your questions are those of a 10year old and perhaps you are. But you can read and I have provided links. Now make an effort to learn something from Mr/Mrs Scientist. Or are you just a troll?
