The thing I want to know, is why, if we came from apes, have the apes stopped evolving into humans!! I'm no good at any of this.. Some interesting reads though

But would someone please explain the beginnings of evolution . Ie where did the first amoeba come from or who created the forces that created the big bang theory. Every time I ask this no evolutionist answers me. Really genuinely curious.
You know what I think? Both approaches need total faith as there is no absolute proof for either of them.

I may not understand a belief, but I will try to if someone explains it, and I will still respect that something is your belief even if I do not share it.

Evolution for me. Although one thing I don't understand, why are so many creationists (and not all, I KNOW that it isn't ALL) against the idea that god created the world to let it evolve?
We already know that words and context have changed since the bible was written. Who's to say that "created in seven days" didn't mean "created the beginning, and allowed it to evolve over several million years?"
I guess that's why I'm able to be religious AND believe completely in evolution. I take evolution as something that was seeded and begun, knowing full well that human beings would be an end result.
That's just me though

The best way I can attempt at explaining it is..
we shared a common ancestor.
much like you and your cousins have a common family, but you are not exactly the same.
We didn't 'come from' chimpanzees' ..but the chimpanzees we know today branched off in one direction and adapted to their environment and homo sapiens branched off in another direction and adpated to their environment.
Our great ancestors dies out, became extinct.
Both Chimpanzees and Bonobos (our closest cousins) use tools - just like we do. Our Bodies are VERY much alike...because we are from the same family.
I can find similarities in other parts of nature if you like - or we can just stick with primates??

Both. God created the universe and the rest is history.
