If Hollywood had thought to put feathers on me -- like I'm supposed to have! -- I wouldn't have to hide in the faux-prehistoric foliage for warmth.

And evolution is a big mistake what I just said was completely stupid of me and I have no reason to live.Im a dumbass. There is no such thing is evolution and all Dinosaurs are more related to reptiles than to birds. Also Komodo dragons and Saltwater crocodiles are possibly the Closest living relative to the Tyrannosaurus. So people believing that chickens are the closest living relative to the Tyrannosaurus are stupid and dumb.
Are you an idiot or what?Yes crocs are relatives to Tyrannus.Why dont you go look at a skeleton or a raptor and a skeleton of a chicken? Or the skeleton of a T.Rex and a chicken?And evoloution is nothing?Your face and stupid idiotic brain is nothing without evoloution!!1

Stupid, I'm smarter than you, give me proof that there's evolution and your racist, thinking that dumbass jerkish Americans are better than black men. You're country always say "White people are the best, black men are fools". Go eat some sand or talk to you're Balloons.

Humans are humans, apes are apes, give me one proof that Humans are Apes.
Humans are made by GOD, not evolution. Your dumb, dumbass.

Have a look a the evidence for evolution i gave in the "Enough With The Dumb Comments!" thread and give me your response to the points i made. If you disagree with evolution, you should be able to at least tell me why.

I disagree with evolution cause, Apes are totally different than humans, Birds have wings, Dinosaurs doesn't.

But i've explained a mechanism by which apes can become humans, and dinosaurs can develop wings. I explained the process.

You are just looking at dinosaurs and birds and thinking 'they don't look similar at all'. You aren't actually thinking about how going from a dinosaur to a bird IS infact possible. It doesn't happen instantly. It happens over millions of years, tiny changes in DNA that build up over time and change the structure and function of that particular animal to the point where it becomes a new species.

If you don't get it now, you never will.

I think you are too young to be honest.

Evolution is just wrong, I mean how can a monkey become a Human?

Think about it.

Our ape ancestors lived in the forest initially, but then the climate changed- it became drier. This cleared the forests, which turned into grasslands. Think about a tree swinging ape in a grassland, will it survive?

What happened is the apes developed the ability to walk upright on two legs, which enabled them to not only move more efficiently but also to spot predators and get a better view above the tall grass.

The climate continued to dry, and eventually the hair that covered our early ancestors bodies was lost. We became meat eaters, and this high protein diet fuelled the growth of our very large brains.

I am explaining this process at a very basic level, it is obviously a lot more complicated but in general terms this is what happened.

Fast forward a few million years, and tada, modern humans first appear about 200 000 years ago.

Yes, descended from apes whether you like it or not.

Want more proof? Apes share over 90% of our DNA, some species over 95%! This means our DNA is near identical, and if you bothered to read my other posts regarding evidence for evolution, means that we share a very recent common ancestor. In other words we are descended from other apes (Hominids).

One technicality error i made- we didn't 'lose' our hair, it just became a lot shorter and finer. Our bodies are still covered in hair nonetheless.

I don't think our young friend understands that apes and monkeys today.. like humans...
descended from the same ancestors.
they evolved their way, and we evolved ours.

Easy,all you have to do is change the weather,change landscape,wait a dozen million years,and theres like a 60 % chance of a ape becoming a human.

Actually this 1 dinosaur had wings.I forgot its name but it started with an A.It had wings which it could fly weakly but still let it take lift off,more like hovering for a short time.And Raptors,for example Deinonychus or Velociraptor had skeletons similar to those of a turkey and chicken.And our DNA is 90-95 % similar to those of apes.In fact some apes have learned to speak words similar to those of african and south american languages.

No they aren't, they can't be, Humans ARE apes whether you choose to believe in Evolution or not.
Birds have wings, Dinosaurs doesn't.
Actually several non-avian dinosaurs show evidence of full blown wings. Not necessarily wing used in powered flight, but still wings. Dromaeosaurids and ornithomimids are confirmed to possess wings, and several other ceolurosaurians are speculated to have them through phylogenic bracketing.
