    This won`t stop those inclined to ask it from asking, unfortunately, even though there`s no reason why there shouldn`t still be monkeys had we, in fact, evolved from them to start with.

    Not true.
    75,00,000 years ago, Xenu headed the Galactic Federation, which was an organization of 76 planets that had already existed for 20,000,000 years. The planets were suffering a tremendous problem with overpopulation. Xenu`s draconian solution to the matter was to gather large numbers of people, kill them, freeze their thetans (souls), and transport the frozen thetans to Earth, which they called Teegeeack. The thetans were left in the vicinity of volcanoes, which were, in turn, destroyed in a series of nuclear explosions.

    Members of the galactic Federation eventually rebelled against Xenu, fighting him for six years before he was finally captured and imprisoned on a planet that today is barren desert. Within the "mountain trap" on this unnamed world, Xenu still lives.

    You know this is true `cause it`s Scientology. They got SCIENCE in their name, bro!

    Seriously, there are people who have chosen the path of ignorance. No amount of information or fact will change their mind.

    The great blue sky god invented everything and that`s just all there is to it.

    Poliwrath and Politoad share a common ancestor, Poliwhril. Once you evolve into Politoad you cannot evolve into Poliwrath and vice versa.

    come on, how many of you people actually bothered to read the whole thing after In the beginning? when you read in the beginning, you know youre in for a long story. no seriously, i want to know specifically who and how many people read this. and then i will read the whole thing myself and start a pop quiz to make sure you read the whole thing just to make sure youre not lying and trying to mess up my statistics. on second thought, never mind. this all seems like too much work. it would be nice to know the type of people who bother to read all this though.

    There are way too many big words in that infographic, I don`t think the simple-minded theists will be able to understand it. Here`s a simpler explanation courtesy of South Park`s Mrs. Garrison.

    I`m sorry, Gerry but, that was bullsh*t.

    The purge during Xenu`s rein was 50M years ago not 75M and there are over 200 habitable planets, some with multiple space-faring races, in this quadrant alone.
    You need to get audited and purge those lying thetans, and gay, disco dancing thetans like those two guys.

    Oh, wait...

    We all evolved from a fish who had a retarded baby with legs and lungs. That retarded baby had more retarded babies, who had more retarded babies...etc.

    We are all retarded babies of retarded fish babies.

    Well, 747Pilot, if that`s true, He created gay people in His image, He created people of all skin color and genders in His image, and He gave us all the ability to reason and learn and deduce just *how* He created us. Ironically, the one thing He didn`t give us, ever, is a way to determine if He`s real, being as He`s made Himself to be the one thing that we could never prove, no matter what. As such, you either believe in Him and go to Heaven, or don`t and go to Hell. Dang, sounds like an *awesome* parent to me!

    I appreciate the effort, but creationists are still going ask "why are there still monkeys?" as if they are the first person to think of it. They never listen.

    her`s a thought how about everyone believes whatever they want to believe and stop talking down to those that don`t agree with them? that`s what it means to be human whatever you believe. unless you are a scientologist, then carry on.

    "This infograph is nothing more than theories and geusses."
    All of science is just a series of theories and guesses. Only, some theories and guesses are backed up by tons of empirical data (ie. evolution) and some are not (ie. deism).

    "People just can`t accept that fact that humans were created."

    Non-theists have no trouble accepting that. Humans were created? No prob! We were created by our parents, and they were created by their parents before them, and so on and so on. You don`t need to believe in some invisible sky-dwelling deity to accept that.

    @handimanner: Correct! Or read the works of PK Dick...

    @JoClRo: WRONG! I`ve seen it, it`s documented a million times over... Humans evolved ok? It`s God`s Plan! When God created the Universe? HE intended for Humans (OR something like us) to EVOLVE. QED!

    @stinkeytoes: hee hee, well done! +1 internets for YOU!

    Strange, I know of no theory that claims humans evolved from monkeys.

    Why try to prove something that no (sane) person is claiming?

    Can we also have a graphic that states that argues that Humans did not evolve from a Dodge Dart?

    MeGrendel,
    The only theory stating that humans evolved from monkeys exists in the minds of creationists. They misrepresent that such a theory exists in science and, I think purposefully, misunderstand what such a theory might mean. I don`t think that makes them not sane. I think it just means they have no arguments that actually work, so they`ll say anything that supports their belief.

    Maybe if people started using the word apes aswell as monkeys, it might be a little bit easier to understand. We are not related to monkeys, we are related to apes, which is why we don`t have tails. Apes and monkeys have the same common ancestor, along with all the other primates. How come so many people forget what they learn in school? Are you all just trying to look retarded because you think it`s cool?

    Scientists agree that life cannot exist without intelligent process. Where did that single cell come from? I think everyone understands that we didn`t come from monkeys. Most people misunderstand evolution. Why are the current day apes no longer trying to make the leap we did to become human? Most of you just take things wholesale without any validation.
    Evolution is not a proven fact. MICRO evolution is proven fact. It`s sad that most of you believe this while laughing at others, whilst having a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips. But hey, you were told once that this THEORY is truth, so you ran with it. Most of you have are parroting what you heard someone you deemed as an "intellectual" say, as truth.
    Scientists believed the Earth was flat. They believed bloodletting was a cure for most medical problems. The speed of sound can`t be broken by any physical object. All of these things, plus 1000s more, were accepted truths at one time.
