I do not have a common anything with chimps or apes. I do not have the monkey gene.
In 1939, Drs. Philip Levine and Rufus Stetson published in a first case report the clinical consequences of non-recognized Rh factor, hemolytic transfusion reaction and hemolytic disease of the newborn in its most severe form. It was recognized that the serum of the reported woman agglutinated with red blood cells of about 80% of the people although the then known blood groups, in particular ABO were matched. No name was given to this then for the first time described agglutinin. In 1940, Drs. Karl Landsteiner and Alexander S. Wiener reported a serum that also reacted with about 85% of different human red blood cells. This serum was produced by immunizing rabbits with red blood cells from Rhesus macaque. The antigen that induced this immunization was designated by them as Rh factor "to indicate that rhesus blood had been used for the production of the serum." Based on the serologic similarities Rh factor was later also used for antigens, and anti-Rh for antibodies, found in humans such as the previously described by Levine and Stetson. Although differences between these two sera were shown already in 1942 and clearly demonstrated in 1963, the already widely used term "Rh" was kept for the clinically described human antibodies which are different from the ones related to the Rhesus ape. This real factor found in Rhesus macaque was classified in the Landsteiner-Wiener antigen system (antigen LW, antibody anti-LW) in honor to the discoverers. It was recognized that the Rh factor was just one in a system of various antigens. Based on different models of genetic inheritance, two different terminologies were developed; both of them are still in use (see below). The clinical significance of this highly immunizing D antigen (i.e. Rh factor) was soon realized. Some keystones were to recognize its importance for blood transfusion including reliable diagnostic tests, and hemolytic disease of the newborn including exchange transfusion and very importantly the prevention of it by screening and prophylaxis.

Every human language evolved from 'single prehistoric African mother tongue
(visit the link for the full news article)
Every language in the world - from English to Mandarin - evolved from a prehistoric 'mother tongue' first spoken in Africa tens of thousands of years ago, a new study reveals.
After analysing more than 500 languages, Dr Quentin Atkinson found compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors.
The findings don't just pinpoint the origin of language to Africa - they also show that speech evolved at least 100,000 years ago, far earli

did you start from just a couple apes?
I ask because many say well so and so must have done such and such
has the human race grown? from how many in the beggining?
For man is not from woman, but woman from man.
For as woman came from man, even so man also comes through woman; but all things are from God.

What? Of course I didn't start from a couple apes. Evolution is a slow process, and humans have looked the way we do for almost 500,000 years, though we had less of a chin (or no chin at all). I don't know the exact numbers of us in the beginning, since there was no definite beginning. That's the wonder of evolution. Creatures don't "begin," however much we would like to label them as beginnings of creatures. We are all in a steady state of gradual change.
The special thing about humans is that a few million years ago, we started to break rocks and utilized their sharp edges. This lead to a higher survival rate among apes who could better control tools. In that sense, higher perceptions and abilities to remember how to make things arose. It took a couple more million years, but we developed hand-axes and other tool systems, until around 750,000 years ago we began to cultivate fire. Something about being able to stay warm and have time to think caused humans to begin developing more things and spreading genes for larger and larger brain capacity. Eventually, you achieve us today, and we are not a finished product. No creature is ever done evolving or evolving to reach a specific point.
Speaking from a developmental point of view, that's not entirely true. Fetuses are all female after conception until a certain number of weeks in, after which testosterone begins production and the male parts take shape. In all technicality, all males come from the female form, both inside and out.
Whereas most mammals (including common species such as dogs and mice) and most other primates (excepting spider monkeys) have a penile bone, human males lack this bone and must rely on fluid hydraulics to maintain erections. This is not an insignificant bone...it was Adam’s baculum that was removed in order to make Eve. That would explain why human males, of all the primates and most other mammals, did not have one. The Hebrew noun translated as "rib," tzela (tzade, lamed, ayin), can indeed mean a costal rib...If this seam does not form, hypospadias of the glans, penis, and scrotum can result.
"The Father of Modern Genetics"
Dr. Lejeune explained that within three to seven days after fertilization we can determine if the new human being is a boy or a girl. "At no time," Dr. Lejeune said, "is the human being a blob of protoplasm. As far as your nature is concerned, I see no difference between the early person that you were at conception and the late person which you are now. You were, and are, a human being."
late 14c., "the young while in the womb or egg," from L. fetus (often, incorrectly, foetus) "the bearing, bringing forth, or hatching of young," from Latin base *fe- "to generate, bear," also "to suck, suckle" (see fecund). In Latin, fetus sometimes was transferred figuratively to the newborn creature itself, or used in a sense of "offspring, brood" (cf. Horace's "Germania quos horrida parturit Fetus"), but this was not the basic meaning. www.etymonline.com

Seriously you're not serious, right? You're claiming that the penile bone is a rib, and that because the "y" chromosome can be identified a few days after conception, that it automatically means that males came first.
I don't even... why I bother posting on this site...
Have you ever considered that perhaps the penile bone is just a gene that has turned off as a result of upright walking and humans being at a disadvantage if their thingy is waving around? Some people are still born with it sometimes, and doctors surgically remove it.

Wolpoff’s team of scientists compared the anatomical structure of bones found in Australia and central Europe, looking for signs of a uniquely African ancestry. They found none. Their report, published in Science, reveals that Wolpoff found evidence of both African and “local” ancestors.
“We could not disprove the hypothesis of multiple ancestry,” he said. “We don’t think [the replacement theory] could be correct. ”
