You think you've got the ultimate trump card there, don't you? So you smile and fold your arms smugly across your chest, waiting for the evolutionist to stammer out an answer you won't believe or, better yet, to totally ignore the question and think up another retort. Then you can think to yourself, "He doesn't know. See, he's avoiding the question because he knows I'm right." And then you can go home and have a good night's sleep, right after kneeling beside your bed and praying for the poor misguided souls who still believe in the evolution theory that, ha ha, is supported by silly old scientific proof. Tsk tsk. That is so last century; don't they realize that faith is everything? It provides an excuse for absolutely everything you don't know. So you never have to look ignorant, because you can just play the God card. A simple, effective solution. Isn't that cool?
Except for one thing. Your trump card is not a trump card.
Get this: the argument is NOT that 'we evolved from apes'. Even though most of the population will use those words, they're incorrect. We are related, yes. But the ape is not a more primitive form of man.
The real truth is, apes and humans share a common ancestor. That is NOT the same thing as 'evolving from apes'. About five million years ago, there was a split from one common ancestor resulting in two branches; a very early form of today's apes and a very early form of today's humans. Those two branches then evolved independently, and became the familiar beings that exist today.
So we haven't evolved from apes at all; we're just pretty closely related. Apes have evolved right alongside us - independently - for the past five million years. Therefore, the apes of today aren't at all the same apes that we supposedly evolved from.
Read it and weep. There is your trump card... shot down!!!
