I saw this photo on a facebook page. I did not understand what point it was trying to make.
What point do you think the photo was trying to make?
Well that's a good question. Some people are not believing in evolution and are asking this:"If men evolved from apes, why are there still apes in the world?"
The answer is that we both evolved from a species which lived millions of years ago, but we were divided as separate species. I could try to explain this with an example with humans, as you mentioned the cousins.
Mary is a woman, who has two children. Mike and Bill.Mike and Bill both find wives, get married and they have children.Mike has a daughter called Eve, Bill has a daughter named Suzy.
Both Eve and Suzy have the same grandmother.
This is basically the same with humans and apes, however the ancestry is from grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand..(lots of grands here)......grand-parents, from over a million years back.
Haha haha!! I don't quite agree with this since scientist have not been able to really say how we evolved.
Well they have good enough proof to show it did happen, so I have no reason to doubt it :)
Can you show me the prove?
