:Yes, who? Who claims man descends from monkeys? Anybody that preaches evolution. The who is ....all secular Western cultures, most atheist-led countries. Man evolved from ape, from beasts, is just leftwing indoctrination. The result is to dehumanize man, make less than worthy, create classes and label them sub-human species.

People tend to use "monkey" and "ape" very generically, unlike "gorilla", "chimpanzee", and etc. which are more specific.

In a sense, Jjameson is correct in questioning the claim: evolutionists don't claim that man evolved from a monkey or ape; but that humans and apes had a common ancestor from which both evolved.

On the other hand, as "monkey" and "ape" are general terms, that supposed common ancestor, if found, although being classified as a different species by scientists, would likely be referred to by laymen as a "monkey" or "ape" anyway.  So in that sense, Jpatt is correct.

I'd just like to ask, who exactly claims that Mankind evolved from monkeys? I've been seeing it as "Mankind and monkeys have a common ancestor" most of the time... Jjameson 20:36, 18 March 2009 (EDT)

On the other hand, as "monkey" and "ape" are general terms, that supposed common ancestor, if found, although being classified as a different species by scientists, would likely be referred to by laymen as a "monkey" or "ape" anyway. So in that sense, Jpatt is correct.
