If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes?

 

Classic creationist idiocy

 

"Let’s say upfront that asking “if humans/apes evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?” is exactly the same as saying “if there are snakes, why are there still lizards?”, “if there are tetrapods, why are there still fish”, or “if there are European Americans, why are there still Europeans?”. The point that stubborn creationists apparently refuse to appreciate is that only one group among the animals that we call ‘monkeys’ evolved into the animals that we call ‘apes’: other ancestral monkeys begat more monkeys, and apes are, in fact, merely one monkey lineage among several. Yes, you should think of apes as big, weird monkeys. We just use a different name for that lineage of big weird monkeys because we find this distinction a useful one. This distinction would be less obvious if early, monkey-like members of the ape lineage still existed. But they don’t; they’re extinct. So you should think of apes as monkeys in the same way that birds are dinosaurs, snakes are lizards, and humans are apes."

why do 24 hour stores have locks on the doors?

 

 

Holidays, or if for unforeseen circumstances no staff can stay at the store for any reason.
