Not a descendent of a distant ape.


What are you descended from?

I would be a descendant of my mother and father.


Somewhere down your lineage, according to the theory of evolution, would eventually be an ape. If you go far enough through your lineage, your greatest grandparent would also theoretically be a unicellular organism.

This is part of evolutionary theory, is this something you are not aware of?

Oa reply to: cooperton

Oh look! A strawman from a creationist.

Yeah, not surprised.


This is not a strawman. We are all theorized to be descended from apes. If you traced your family tree according to the theory of evolution, you would eventually come to an ape as one of your 1000x great grandparents. Or do you think the homo sapien appeared into existence without lineage with the apes?

Show me where it says we are descendants from apes in a peer reviewed paper on modern evolutionary synthesis.

I'll wait for you lack of peer reviewed paper.

Oh dear. Why did you go for that old chestnut? We share a common ancestor with apes.

Origin of SPECIES, not life itself. I think we all know the purpose of this thread.


BS, and you know it. Stop answering for other posters.

And completely OT, but Tzar, I love the new avatar.

The only thing we can agree on so far in this thread.

Origins and modern evolutionary synthesis address a lot of the same questions.

I tend to agree with this sensibility.

But more than few others here do not.

I learnt about a tendon in only 1 in 3 of us today in your wrist if you put your thumb and little finger touching together and look at your wrist you may have a tendon there (you will see it) and that is a useless tendon which we used when our ancestors were on all fours.
Been doing it all day looking I have the odd monkey tendon

Wisdom teeth are another good one. They cause all sorts of fun for folk. Damn that shrinking jaw

Yes, I have learned that also. But I don't think it's "useless." It improves the grip of the hand. I don't have it. My hands are not very strong.

That is totally false. Common ancestry does not mean your great uncle was an ape. You still don't understand divergence and diversity.

If you were a scientist who traveled to another planet and you observed that there was a very wide diversity of life, you might think that they were all totally different. But after doing genetic analysis (assuming they have a genetic structure), you found that they all had a statistically significant number of genes in common. What would be your conclusion?
If you were a scientist you would make an assumption that all creatures on this planet have a commonality. They are all different but the the vast majority of their genetic profiles are similar. That says a lot about the planet, the organisms living on it, speciation and their genetic profiles.

Don't you get it yet?? COMMONALITY, COMMON ANCESTRY, DIVERGENCE, DIVERSITY, ADAPTATION, NATURAL SELECTION AND (here we have a drum role) EVOLUTION!!!

So far lots of assumption

What is empirical evidence

Here you go
The word "empirical" indicate information gained by means of observation, experience, or experiments. A central theme of science and scientific method is that all evidence must be empirical, or at least empirically based, that is, it should depend on evidence or results that can be observed by our senses.
Empirical Evidence - Convincing Scientific Proof - Explorable.com
explorable.com...

So far nothing I have been offered, absolutely nothing by the scientific illiterate wannabes around here have offered anything that can be observed by our senses.

Nothing proves man came from monkeys or any other common ancestor


So please, offer the empirical evidence

All this thread proves is that the less refined members of the forum have succeeded in dragging others down to their level in terms of petty threads and cheap posts. Let's try to be more informative and less provocative with our evolution threads, hmm?


All it proves is evolution is a pseudo science with no empirical evidence and the average believer in evolution doesnt understand science

Actually not worth "debating" with an intellectually challenged inferior.


Isnt this funny

No ones asking for a debate yet you have to make it about you

I am asking for empirical evidence

So far the best I have seen is from some one who thinks fossils are empirical evidence, hahaha Rofl, lol, tee hee
No debates
Learn science and how it works

Empirical evidence, lets go

We are all descendants of space dirt and space water.
Its our common ancestor, common lineage, you dont understand science do you Phants


and the funny thing, you are preaching a faith, a belief, no science behind it

All species share a common descent. In evolutionary biology, a group of organisms share common descent if they have a common ancestor. There is strong quantitative supportfor the theory that all living organisms on Earth are descended from a common ancestor.
Darwin was Right | All species share a common descent
www.darwinwasright.org/common_descent.html

See how it states support, support is not empirical evidence

You sir, FAIL again

Really, seriously, you believe that
Are you that ignorant

You know people who eat roughage dont have issues with wisdom teeth, people who eat processed food do

Guess why and its not evolution
Seriously, people ar brainwashed and gullible, its not suprising

It comes as no shock that you believe this, you havnt a clue

Please go do a tiny little bit of research, thinking you have a monkey muscle shouldnt mean you think you have a monkey IQ

How embarrassing, confirmation bias
