Hi, Jaywill.

Good to see you(r words) again.

Should we regard that as evidence that humans descended from ape like animals over millions of years?

You should regard it as evidence that humans could have evolved from ape-like animals, because all necessary steps have been shown to be possible.

You are correct that it is not direct evidence that this did happen: but, that isn't the point of this thread. Percy wants to discuss how new genetic "information" can arise through mutation.

Darwin loves you.
