    I can state categorically that humans did not evolve from monkeys.


    Rather, both monkeys and humans evolved from a common ancestor species.

    Anyway looking at monkeys and man I'd say it's impossible, looking at both species [in general] it would be a retrograde step, which is not allowed in the theory of evolution.

    Wasn't the primate closest to the monkey before the human-like primates the orangutang (sp...) and not actually an "ape" or "monkey" as others would have it?

    Man is a primate. Monkeys are primates. Apes are primates. We all evolved from early primates that looked not unlike lemurs.

    billco's solid knowledge of physics has let him down in biology. There is no such thing as a retrograde step in evolution, because, and only because, evolution has no direction.

    I shall let him off this time [ ]as I think it may have been an attempt at humour. Generally tree shrews are funnier.

    we evolved from a common ancestor that we share with chimpanses. and further back we go we get a common ancestor with more apes until we reach a ancestor thatis the ancestor of all primates
