I was taught in my school human beings are evolved from monkeys or Apps.later I realised there is no authentic fact about this topic.So we learned from theories only.Even now science did not confirm that we came from Adam and Eve peace be upon them.but anyhow I believe we came from Adam and Eve pbut).so what do you think about this? Do you still believe in those theories?

There is ample fossil (and biological) evidence that humans and the modern apes (chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas and orang utans) have all evolved (over very many generations) from a common ancestor. There is also increasing evidence that there has been more than one race (sub-species) of humans and that our own - including every human in the world today - is the single race that has survived, though it is likely that there was some interbreeding with some of the other races, now extinct. All of the above is scientific fact and has been proved in several different ways, most recently by our increasing understanding of DNA. The 'theory' part concerns exactly how evolution happens and we are a great deal closer to knowing the exact mechanism of that than Darwin was. If you want to believe that all humans today are the thousand-times-great grandchildren of an 'Adam' and an 'Eve' you are welcome to do so, though the truth may be rather more complicated than that!

@NoorNoor The word 'Adam' simply means 'man' and 'Eve' is just 'woman'. They are not really personal names at all. The accounts of the Creation (in the book of Genesis and also, I believe, in the Quran) are not factual and were never meant to be taken literally. They are metaphors or myths - highly simplified stories, such as you might tell to a child.
@owlwings ok.That's what you believe.but we muslims believe Adam pbuh was a prophet.His life was a true story. We believe in this verse of quran"O Mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Adam) and from Him (Adam) He created his wife (Eve), and from them both He created many men and women.” (Quran 4:1). and thank you for your comment.
