    No shit they aren't evolving into us. They're on their own path. I never said they were. Glad we cleared up your confusion

    Look in the mirror. Thats what came from the branch of life. Look at every primate. How many different types of primate exist? Isn't that enough diversity?

    Ok, how about black people were the first humans and we are all related. Asians, whites, Hispanics, Eskimo, Jews. We are all related.

    That's what the evidence suggests anyways. Dna and all

    What would you consider that common ancestor we share with monkeys? If it branched off and one became monkey then it either was a monkey or was less than a monkey. Like maybe the split happened when that common ancestor was still a rodent type creature.

    .

    knowing what that is would help, the relay back to the genome for a desired change like growing wings in time the genome will make it happen when the formula is completed. no missing link necessary.

    Could you imagine how powerful and strong the bones would have to be in our wings for us to be able to fly? And how fast they would have to flap?

    Well, it takes millions of years for evolution to happen. Get back to me to disprove evolution in a million years. I will buy you a Ferrari if you prove me wrong.
