Re: Allow me to defend myself
I mean to say, it is not a primate human, it is either a primate, or a human
Humans are primates.
But how did the first living cell or organism come about?
Thats a chemistry question, not a biology question. Evolution doesn't care about how the first life came about, just what happened after.

Just a monkey in a long line of kings.

Re: Question!
ok at the monkeys or any other animal. Why are they the same as they were thousands of years ago?
They aren't.
But if you look way back, this "theory" of evolution has no foundation.
You mean other than the fossil record and the genetic evidence?
If evolution promotes the "strongest" animals, why arent elephants, or gorrilas, or tigers wiser or smarter than us?
Cause evolution doesn't promote the strongest. The organisms that are best adapted to their ecological niche are the ones that survive.
Questions that stumps me.
Well, get an education.

Re: Question!
Have they gotten anymore advanced in the way they live?
Behaviour doesn't fossilize so that question doesn't have a good answer. Before you get on me about contradicitng myself I took your question:
Why are they the same as they were thousands of years ago?
To be the usual creationist garbage along the lines of "if we come from monkies why are there still monkies?" and answered it in that vein.
Then we date it with our dating methods, but how do you know it's tottally reliable? Possibly you can tell for the past hundred years, but millions!?
The correlation between the multiple dating methods means we can be pretty confident about the accuracy of the dates produced, even to millions of years ago. Check out the various correlation threads in the Dates and Dating forum.
Why do we have moral judgment?
Dunno, thats more of a socialogical/physcological question than a biological one
Where did human embarassment from nakedness come from?
As crash has already pointed out shame at being nekkid is not a universal theme in humanity.
from your messgae 285
But where did it come from...if not the way the Bible says?
It came about just how the King of Kings and Lord of Lords Odin the Allfather said, obviously.
The earth is round;
I'm sure arach will correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the hebrew word in question actually describe the Earth as a circle, a flat 2D object, not a 3D sphere.
