@henkaman It's not about want, it`s about need. To survive our ancestors needed to think and build tools and be able to manipulate them. That was enough. If in our evolutionary history, there was a time that our ancestors needed to be able to fly, maybe we would have evolved to have wings. But most likely we would have become extinct, because I`m pretty sure there it nothing in our ancestor`s genetic make-up that would allow us to have evolved with wings. Also, we didn`t evolve from monkeys, we evolved from a common ancestor, in answer to the question.

I have another thought; man has ALWAYS wanted to fly. But we have not even the smallest pair of initial wings? Instead, we use our brain to build aeroplanes. A brain with a capacity we only use to about 5-10%. Why did we evolve this huge brain, when we don't use it? And why doesn`t all men have gigantic...well, you know. We all want to have that? (haha no, not everybody, but you get my point, maybe) ;)
