notgracie asked: Sorry if you already have posts on this, but do you believe that humans evolved from monkeys? Or are you on the religious side where we believe humans were created by God in his image, not made from apes?
no, i don’t believe in anything evolutionary.
i accept the overwhelming scientific evidence that we, humans, evolved from a common ancestor with monkeys and other primates…
and “the religious side” makes it seem like all religious people are incapable of understanding and incorporating concrete scientific evidence and conclusions into their religious and spiritual beliefs. this is not the case. i know many thoughtful and devout religious people who do accept the OVERWHELMING SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE for the gradual change of and divergence of current life forms from previous now non-existent life forms by means of natural selection and adaptation.
so, no/yes and yes/no, but no i’m not religious, either.
