    Link: Male Monkeys Pay For Sex Just Like Men - And here`s a shocker: female monkeys withhold sex to get things from their simian suitors.

    That cinches it--we did evolve from monkeys.

    Oh, way to go, fancylad. If an Evolution-vs-Creation debate springs up here, it`ll be ALL YOUR FAULT.

    Anyhow, this is verrrry interesting. I couldn`t find anything in the article about the female monkeys withholding sex, though, so that seems to be a strictly human thing to do.

    It`s not surprising at all. I do believe in evolution/adaptation. Although we something divine, I believe God made the world make itself, and therefore we evolved in this world.

    odeed you have high expectations, why don`t you make a name for yourself and stop admiring people for things you can do. Why don`t you make the jokes and call the shots? You could very well be the next akappy.

    Prostitution is the oldest of all Human institutions... perhaps predating even ourselves!

    Berserk, you believe that God made the world `Make Itself?`? What exactly do you mean by this, and at what point does the prospect of god NOT become superfluous in the course of this proposition?

    (Not fancylad`s fault.)

    I don`t see it as `payment`, since the research only determined that there is a higher chance of sex after grooming. The way I see it, it`s probably just another type of foreplay.

    And as R_U said, there wasn`t anything about witholding sex as punishment.

    Well propositions will always vary depending on the theory, but by the theory of "God making the world make itself," it means exactly that. If you were to make a planet, why would you just build something so complex without having it know what to do, and I mean the whole universe as well. It`s already programmed to make itself grow in abundance and to finally die in the end. Just like a newborn child when it`s born, it`s not done developing. Just like that saying "robots making robots".

    Suicism: The concept is basically the core of any theistic evolution.

    I can write a computer program that creates a world based on some algorithms. I didn`t draw the world, the algorithm did, but the world came about in line with my (stated) intentions.

    The programmer does not become superfluous.

    Incidentally, evolutionists do not think we evolved from monkeys exactly. If you`re interested go look up the different evolutionary chains.

    Well, knowing that God is outside this universe, he/she/it will always be superfluous to our understanding. We can not fathom eternity. Also, I don`t think God is a white old man with a beard sitting on a throne judging and punishing people forever. That`s just absurd. Remember science without religion is lame, and religion without science is blind " Albert Einstein

    ^agreed. Too bad there`s a lot of separationism going on today.

    I myself beleive in Darwin`s Evolution theory, but I do not beleive the evolution theory of man coming from monkeys, based on certain logics and other matters, reinforced by my faith.

    Damn it, I don`t like to talk evolution ><

    Let`s drop the evo/god talk...

    Men just found out that all you have to do is brush a girls hair and groom her a little and you`re "in".

    LOL

    I see this less as paying for sex, but rather as romancing and seducing their mate. Silly researchers put a "market" spin on this.

    i kind of believe in evolution: i believe that species would adapt to an environment, maybe changing alot, but the whole concept of humanity starting of a bacteria and stuff is ridiculous to me. also, i read somewhere that there are 1x10^520 (its a big number) differences between humans and apes, and even if there was one change per second, (as opposed to the gradual change in new generations) it would still take around 20 million years

    I read that if you`re ever attacked by an angry gorilla (because we all know how common gorilla attacks are), that you should try to start grooming it because primates take it as a gesture of friendship. The male monkeys are simply doing the equivalent of giving your partner a massage to get in the mood.
