You're the one who continually says that evolution claims we evolved from either "apes" or "monkeys", despite being told several hundred times that this simply isn't true.
At least we display the ability to LEARN things, unlike you. For example, we have learned so far, through objective study of you and your posts, that you are by almost any definition an idiot.
t seem that you have agreed with me. I think the issue is settled. We are not the descendant of the apes and the apes are not our ancestor. Perhaps the apes are the descendants of the human?

Lets try it once more, following our line of descent:
1. The early primates separated into two groups, the ancestors of modern monkeys and the ancestors to all apes (including humans).
2. The ape line split in two with one line leading to the orang utans
3. The other ape line then split with one line leading to gorillas.
4. Finally the remaining ape line split, giving the line leading eventually to chimpanzees and bonobos and the line leading to early humans.

If it were any other group of animals, chimpanzees and humans would probably be put in one genus, like horses and zebras, especially considering the similarities between our species and the close genetic ties. However, in our pride we have decided that we are better then chimps, so we have decided to put chimps in the genus Pan and humans in the genus Homo. IMHO, these two genuses are synonimous, and we are really the thord species of chimpanzee, but then I'm not a taxonomist. <grin>

That would be the _third_ species of chimpanzee... -sigh-

NOPE! A human.
And a human is classified as an ape, mammal, vertebrate, and a eukaryote. It's a fact.

Humans are apes just as we are mammals, vertebrates, and eukaryotes. What is so hard to understand here?

Nobody's stopping you. Even the fact that you are of the species H. sapiens, of the genus Homo, the family Homonidae, the Primate order, the Mammalia (mammals) class, the Chordata phylum, and the animal kingdom does not stop you from worshipping God in the manner of your choice.

What you do as an individual is entirely your own concern. The fact that you are of a species that shares a common ancestor with chimpanzees, and ultimately with all extant life forms on this planet, has absolutely no effect whatsoever on who you are as an individual.

Why is that so hard to understand?

Then go. Please. By all means. Worship Him. Often. Take your time. A long long time. Don't come back until He's happy.

No one decended from a monkey. Even evolution does not state anyone decended from a monkey, it was an ape like creature supposidly and even that is up for debate.
