Misconception: Humans evolved from monkeys
Transcript of Misconception: Humans evolved from monkeys
*Humans are 98% closely related to Chimpanzees.Although we do not share a brain lobe with them.
*Some stretches of DNA imply that chimps and humans were closest. * Chimps, Orangatans, and Gorillas have 24 pairs of chromosomes. Humans have 23 pairs.
* Two Ape chromosomes are fused together in us. Chromosome Similarities/ Differences: *Chromosome 2- is the second biggest chromosome, formed by fusion of 2 medium sized ape chromosomes is within humans.
*Apart from the fusion of Chromosome 2, there is few and little visible differences between the two species. Chromosome 2: *Ten million years ago, the ape was discovered and was assumed to be our ancestor.
*In 1950 according to genes, it was uncertain whether or not we evolved from apes. History: Evolution works in years not generations.
To this day we have not discovered a fossil that could prove that we evolved from apes.
There is not enough evidence to confirm the fact that humans evolved from apes. Sources/MLA documentation: Ridley, Matt. "Chromosome 2." Genome: The Autobiography of a Species in 23 Chapters. New York: HarperCollins, 1999. N. pag. Print. Misconception: *Its a misconception because there are not enough facts about humans evolving from apes.
* The theory states that it is assumed (not factual) that we evolved from apes.
