Most people think that we did indeed evolve from primates when the facts show that humans are cousins of chimps. I just wanted to dispel any wrong beliefs on the matter. What's your angle?

Humans are primates. You need to do a lot more research.

I am agnostic/evolutionist. I've done the research thoroughly. We come from a kind of primate still undefined, if you will, but not from the chimp necessarily. Misunderstood. (Maybe I am NOT phrasing my words right, maybe.)

Not phrasing it right indeed. No one claims humans evolved directly from chimpanzees. OK, just be more careful... :wink:

Welcome, crios. I don’t think being an agnostic or atheist or theist has anything to do with our scientific understanding of evolution. Humans share a common ancestor with other primates. This is an accepted fact just as it is an accepted fact that the earth is round. There are those who believe the earth is flat and that humans did not evolve from a common ancestor, but the earth remains round and evolution remains Real.

And to take it further, humans and chimps are so closely related that they can be affected by the same diseases: AIDS and hepatitis. Humans and chimps are actually more closely related than chimps and gorillas.

Again, welcome to BT.

Yes, sorry I didn't think to say it before: :welcome:

Mushrooms are closer to animals than plants.

If they are MY mushrooms, growing in MY garden I love them because they are mine!

By Jove! I think I’ve got it.

As it turns out, animals and fungi share a common ancestor and branched away from plants at some point about 1.1 billion years ago. It was only later that animals and fungi separated on the genealogical tree of life, making mushrooms more closely related to humans than plants.

Thank you for clarifying this. I was scratching my head over the first one, since obviously animals move around, so mushrooms are like plants. Kind of a platypus case, I guess: it is possible to be a mammal even though you still do the egg-laying thing.

Of course we did not evolve from primates. I don't know anyone who thinks we did. Darwin said man and apes share a common ancestor, not that one evolved from the other.

Still, the statement is true, and not only because we ourselves are primates.
