This is a question I pondered a lot in the past without seeing that the answer was right in front of me.
I don’t think anyone needs to go into depth about whether evolution is real or not as there is so much scientific evidence proving all living forms evolve and change over time. That being true, it is definitely possible that humans evolved from primates even if that wasn’t the case. Although possible does not necessarily mean probably and it’s definitely a far cry from actual.
Fast forward a few years and it can be amazing how what once felt like a question that would never be answered became, I can’t believe I didn’t realise what was right in front of me earlier!
For hardcore religion it seemed like the mere idea of evolution went against the idea of creation when in truth, evolution is the very core of creation. Many have come to realise it’s highly unlikely that some Supreme Being beamed fully fledged human beings onto the earth’s surface and announced, “Go forth and be good and I’ll send someone soon to tell you all the rules you should live by!”
Hehehe……..Oh, I love a good Bible story.
Yep, a bit of human interpretation and exaggeration makes for a great story all right!
All I’m saying is the creative energy that pulses through all things does not send beings that have not yet evolved into a specific environment with a long list of rules they are then required to adhere too. All life forms evolve, and there is no evidence that contradicts this truth anywhere in this Universe. So we have definitely evolved to become what and who we are now as human beings, but the question is, did we evolve from primates that are currently living on this planet now?
There’s the answer right there!
When any species evolves it changes in response to that species needs which are related to adapting more efficiently to the environment and therefore creating a better life experience and improving their chances of survival. If a species is not separated by long distances and different environments the evolution of that species will be complete in the sense that half the population will not remain as they are while half evolve. All will evolve in a similar fashion as long as their proximity to each other and the environment they live in remains constant. If we evolved from any of the present day primates that are living on this planet now, well they wouldn’t be here, would they? They would be the evolved us and therefore wouldn’t still be in their previously unevolved form unless there was a complete segregation of groups.
If a species is separated through proximity to one another and the environment they live in changes, over time there will definitely be evolutionary changes to each separated group. The best example on this planet of evolution through both species isolation and extreme environmental differences are the species that are currently living on the Island of Madagascar.
This does not mean we didn’t evolve from primates or hominids that were present on the earth millions of years earlier and the fact that we are even here says that we have, but it does mean we have not evolved from the primates that are currently living on the earth now.
I suppose one could say it’s a bit of a non-event in the sense that it’s undeniable all species evolve, hence we have also evolved from earlier less evolved species of hominids. We are truly not separate or superior to other species in this regard…….even though many like to think they are. Being an animal or a plant or even a planet for that matter does not make one more or less superior than the other, it just makes all life forms different, each coming forward with specific intentions and for different purposes. I’d like to see how superior human beings would feel without a planet to live on or food to eat.
In time human beings will come to understand more fully the origins of exactly where and how they came to be as they are now……..but the truth is very few are ready at this time to know the specific details of this truth for humanity is currently still riddled with fear and untruths that give rise to hatred, competition and violence. In short, humanity needs to make an evolutionary jump to the next phase of their evolution before this will be able to be revealed and accepted by the masses without strongly negative consequences.
This is exactly what is happening as our children that many have labelled as troubled, uncontrollable, strange, different, autistic, indigo, and sensitive are coming forward in increasingly large numbers. These new beings have altered DNA which is the next evolutionary jump for human beings. As these children grow they will be drawn to others like themselves whether they are consciously aware of it or not and it will not take long for this evolutionary change to be complete……..And it will be in as little as one or two generations!!!
And so it will be…….
