Yes, we can traces all life to a very simple early life. And yes, nothing "just sprang up". We are apes, We share a common ancestor with other apes.

`you must have missed this one:
how many different clade are there? do human clades differ from the snake clades? are monkeys a different clades than apes and humans?
You didn't check out the link I gave?

Oh, wait, you can't understand anything above the 5th grade level.

There are an almost unlimited number of clades. A clade can be very very small. A clade could be as small as two individuals, For example an amoeba once it splits forms a clade.

Of course human clades are different from snake clades. One has humans in it the other has snakes in it. Even you are not that stupid.

Now you actually asked one half decent question. If you include all monkeys in one clade then humans and other apes are in that clade too. The split between Old World and New World monkeys predates the split of apes from Old World monkeys. Therefore we are monkeys by cladistics.

What is funny is that creationists will readily admit that humans are mammals, but deny that we are apes. The clade of mammals is much more inclusive than that of just apes or humans. The ancestor that we share with monkeys would be called a monkey today so we are descended from monkeys.

It seems that wondering does not understand the concept of "colloquial speech".

But then he is a creatard after all and has to have a literal interpretation of the Bible, except for the parts that he does not believe in, to support his weak Christian belief.

lying jack wagon

a clade or monophylum is a group consisting of an ancestor and all its descendants, a single "branch" on the "tree of life". the ancestor may be an individual, a population or even a species (extinct or extant). many familiar groups, rodents and insects for example, are clades; others, like lizards and monkeys, are not (lizards excludes snakes,-----"-(monkeys excludes apes and humans)-"---------

I think I am beginning to understand wondering's misuse of the English language. "lying jack wagon" means that someone either posted something that debunks wondering's idiocy or that he simply could not understand.

Very good, you finally went to my link. Now what don't you understand about it? I will gladly help you to understand. You did not even mention lizards and now you try to bring them up. And no, monkeys does not automatically exclude apes. Lastly why did you say "apes and humans"? That is a bit redundant. Humans are apes.

And how is that supposed to support your claim, moron?

Again, it is obvious that if I am using the word "kind" that the usage is colloquial since the term is not used by scientists. I was trying to dumb down the argument to your level. It is obvious that I did not aim low enough.

i have understood it well for many years. you on the other hand throw out words that you think make you smart but have no clue what they mean.

what an idiot. try reading your own link you dumb jack wagon.that just claifies that you throw out words but do not what they mean.

A clade (from Ancient Greek &#954;&#955;&#940; &#948;&#959;&#962; , klados, "branch") or monophylum (see monophyletic) is a group consisting of an ancestor and all its descendants, a single "branch" on the "tree of life".[1] The ancestor may be an individual, a population or even a species (extinct or extant).

This guy Wondering is a one-man PSY -OPS war against the exchange of intrelligent ideas and useful information.
When ever most of you exchange, you are polite and very clear. I sometimes don't understand the subject matter. Or a certain statement- padron moi there too, but I know basically who's kind (Merciful, gentle, polite),
and who's not (Rude, Bellicose, Threatening).

Now this Psy Ops rattle-clap from "wondering" can be seen in the spaces betweeen the words. The 'repediitive' pattern is an
anti intelligence
Speech pattern tool. If you keep playing into his game you're not exchanging real ideas and information.
It's like you're trying to read a Scientific American article or even the bible, And ...

And the rap words

There is really no difference between the two of you. The main part of this argument has been with you and I clearly did not dumb down the argument enough for you.

Yes, Wiki is wrong there. Since monkeys includes both New World and Old World monkeys then apes are part of that clade. Just because people mistakenly exclude apes which include people from monkeys does not make them correct. Check out the link in my last post. If both O.W. monkeys and N.W. monkeys are monkeys then apes are monkeys too. You can't have it both ways.
