Do you believe the theory of the evolution of man or do you believe more on the Bible? Are we really the descendants of the apes or we are humans from the start of human life?

descended from apes. evolution makes perfect sense.. I can't understand why anyone would get offended by the simple fact that we are just another kind of animal.

cos we have intelligence we have conscience... we think before or after we are doing something... we aren't doing things out of reflex... and we have the capacity to get offended when we are compared with animals;)

animals have intelligence and conscience. I don't think we are different. apart from an opposable thumb and a superiority complex. biologically we are classified as animals, because that's what we are.

First, as far as I know there is no Theory of Evolution to believe in. Evolution is an objective, observable process which has been proved beyond dispute by anyone but a small lunatic fringe of fundamentalist Muslims and Christians. We and all life on this planet share a common ancestor in the earliest one celled life forms. When we begin to realize that we have a shared kinship with all other life on this planet, maybe we will start to take better care of our home.

"It is therefore of immediate concern to both biologist and lawman that Darwinism is under attack. The theory of life that undermined nineteenth century religion has virtually become a religion itself and in turn is being threatened by fresh ideas. The attacks are certainly not limited to those of the creationists and religious fundamentalists who deny Darwinism for political and moral reasons. The main thrust of the criticism comes from within science itself. The doubts about Darwinism represent a political revolt from within rather than a siege from without" - B. Leith, The Decent of Darwin:A Handbooks of Doubts about Darwinism (1982) p. 11

One more Creationist writing a book for profit who makes the same claims that were bring made one hundred years ago really dos not have much baring on the subject. Darwin is only disputed by fundamentalist Christians and Muslims who insist that their respective holy books are divinely inspired and literal truth.

What ignorance! According to your logic a scientist can only disagree with claims made by other evolutionists for religious reasons. So punctuated equilibriumists and gradualists are in complete agreement! Yeah Ok

Whether we descended from apes or we started out as humans there is still one single question to answer: Who created all of us? In this aspect I believe in the bible.

There is no evidence that we descended from apes or that we share a common ancestor. Nor, as you may have notice, has anybody bother to point to any evidence. There is no evidence that we are slowly evolving into anything else.

I am a believer in evolution. I think we and apes share a commmon ancestor, but I don't think directly behind me in lineage is a chimpanzee.
