A pair of sea trout rose from the waters upon the ancient continent of Zugledoborn, off the coast of Patagonia, and with the aid of alien overlords from the Peliades, genetically engineered thirty-one rhesus monkeys to handle their banking affairs. It is from the intermingling of the sea trout and the rhesus monkeys from which humanity comes.
Er, oh. Wait, no.
Pretty simple, really. A branch of the Pongonid family tree took up a ground-dwelling life earlier than the Pan branch, and expanded into more lightly forested areas, where bipedalism is an advantage. From there, the Hominids separate from the Pongonids and give rise to the many odd species of human that have been found (and probably several others besides).

Humanity is just an experiment in some 7th graders science class project. He will soon tire of this experiment after he receives an F+ and has to take the 7th grade over again. Then he will disgard his current project, maybe using the same universe over again as a platelet and try something that works more efficiently. Maybe he will find a way to infuse compassion and love as a controlling factor instead of letting his experiment develop wildly and out of control.
