I assume you're joking. But a lot of people ask this as a serious question.
We didn't descend from modern apes. We share a common ancestor with modern apes, that common ancestor we both descended from, on the tree of life, is now extinct as it was, but it lives on in the modern various forms.
Genetic drift is like this:
100 apes in a community.
The community splits into 30/70.
30 go west. 70 go east.
The two communities, that used to be one, no longer breed together or sharing germ cell mutations, so each group drifts apart.
Each group accumulates mutations unique to their group, and pass them on only to the ones they mate with in their group. Thus we have races of skin color among humans, etc..
Evolution is small accumulating changes over a long period of time, factoring in genetic drift, creating a great deal of variation among species; and given enough time you get speciation.
To set the record straight, no, I was not joking. I have asked the same question before, and gotten similar answers from evolutionists. No surprise here.
The fact of the matter is this:
There is NO concrete proof that humans are a product of evolution.
Similarly, there is NO concrete proof that humans were created by God.
I choose to believe in creation. That is my belief, and I have that right.
That belief will never be swayed by one person's opinions.
Humans have been given the free will to think, and reason.
This, of course, is what separates us from animals.
Xerxes, at what point in time did humans suddenly begin to reason?
What did we evolve from, if not from apes?
Why did "modern apes" NOT evolve as we did? They are found in the same geographical locations as modern man, and as far as history is concerned, were exposed to similar environments as man. Genetic drift cannot be THAT large, even over millions of years, without other factors entering into the equation. IF SO, logic dictates that various species, with evolved abilities and knowledge somewhere between ape and man, would exist today. That is not the case. That alone is enough to totally debunk the theory of evolution.
