If you want to learn about the origins of man and our relation to apes, take a primatology course and an evolution course. You'd be surprised to find
there is a huge amount of evidence that we did, indeed, evolve over millions of years from chimpanzees. This is documented by the fact that we're
discovered the bones of human-chimp hybrid species in the Rift Valley of Africa, as well as other hominids like Neanderthals.
Evolution is, in a nutshell, adaptation, and it's a slow, brutal process of endless trial and error via genetic mutations. We're actually evolving
now; we're becoming less hairy, we're losing our appendixes, and we're losing our wisdom teeth. Why? Because we're losing the need for said
things; we have clothes that keep us warm during winter, and we consume soft, safe foods which don't require the appendix or those extra teeth. If
you look into Darwin's findings in the Galapagos, he observed that birds who live on fruit bearing islands had beaks suited for eating fruit. Birds
who lived on other islands, whose diet consisted of insects, had sharper beaks well suited for catching said insects.
All species adapt over time to their environment and changes therein; I don't know where creationists get the nerve to deny this statement and say
evolution is false. You should challenge your beliefs to see if they can hold water.
