    If evolution was real why are there still great apes?

    Evolution doesn't pick out certain members to change, it changes them all.

    If it exists.

    Great Apes and modern humans' common ancestors are the Australopithecines. Evolutionary theory does not say you can draw a line in the evolutionary chain and say "This organism is 99.999 percent human and. 0001 percent Great Ape, and this next organism is 100% human and 0% Great Ape."

    DNA matches all prove common ancestry. We are all locked into a complex web of heredity, and we have a 99% DNA match with apes. We both have Hippocampus Majors. If you reject macrooevolution, go get a kidney transplant from a pig, a liver transplant from a cow, or any other organ transplant from an ape.

    Simply put we are not direct descendants of apes. We are a branch off of the tree that apes share.

    Good grief I learned this in 8th grade. You don't need an alledged Phd to understand this.

    It's really a God quandary.

    "If evolution were real, then there would be no great apes, therefore God exists."

    Great apes exist because Noah put them on the boat.

    And I used to think the 21st century would be a golden age of reason and enlightenment. Instead I got this:



    Fuck me.
