Yes, God did create humans. Just ask any brainwashed human. Otherwise, get a clue, bow your head and pray you never learn the truth!

So long as you are making your living running around in trees and collecting fruit, the existing monkey/ape form is superior to any human one, for that lifestyle.
The evolution of the bipedal apes that would become the hominid line started with a specific event, the drying of East Africa and the replacement of thick jungle with Savannah. Bipedalism was a solution at the time. They could no longer survive in the same way as before, and this is what drives either adaptation or extinction.
There is no "natural tendency" for apes to become more human. Every creature adapts to the environment it is in, or dies out.
We adapted to a new environment, and we got lucky. The hand was freed from locomotion and so gradually developed into a more precise instrument (but less powerful), etc. The additional metabolic burden of a larger brain was compensated for by an increase in the protein and fat content in the new diet. Over the next six million years, this fortunate and singular collection of circumstances drove changes to our form. One thing led to another.
Other apes have not been subject to these particular circumstances, and remained confined to the thick jungles that continued to exist in Western and Southern Africa, and South East Asia. Therefore they would have no tendency to "become human".
Bloody guess!
This is the problem with you guys.
You can not deny what God started and ended.
More guessings and projections?
Waiting?

Translations, are you ignoring that word?
English translation: Beginning and the End.
Greek translation: Alpha and Omega.
Loser!
Bullshit. Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. While they have been used to symbolize beginning and end, that is not a translation.

MY evidence?
Sorry.
I'm not involved in the research.
You can find the evidence other independent sources and fields of study have found and make your own evaluation.
But, of course, you don't have enough personal integrity to do that.
Tell you what.
When you've looked at the real, independently arrived at evidence with the same rigor that I've looked for evidence of your, or any other god or intelligent creator, we can talk.
Until then, you've got nothing.
Tell your self that!
And neither evolution have an answer to that.

The universe is proof neither of the existence of a god nor of the absence of one. Science neither proves nor disproves. There is an underlying order to the universe. How it got that way... who knows?
What you are speaking of there is but your personal philosophy... not anything based on reality.
Likewise.
And certainly you have not answered the question.
That big question that no one can answer, proves that a creator is in existence, after all what then brought the universe into form?

logic is fun!
Hello.......woodtick....knock, knock....is it working? "Birth of the universe".... Not God(learned human behavior) or Big Bang(human theory) terms....In terms not known to the human species. Humans don't like not knowing...so throwout so idea that sounds good based on human logic.....Wait, that's how religion was formed.

there is only one correct and truthful answer to what brought the universe into existence and that is no-one knows.
No one knows?

God exist but some set of people don' t want to know that.

The evidence of creation can be found in reproduction.
Birth is a form of creation or procreation.
