Do you think we have origined from the fish??

I wouldn't say "origined" (or "originated"), since fish were merely a waypoint on the evolutionary path from single-celled organism to human being; that is, there were other organisms before fish that are also evolutionary ancestors of humans. But that's a minor quibble, and my broader answer is yes, the evidence is extremely convincing that there is some sort of fish-like ancestor in our evolutionary past. To date, no credible evidence has come to light that evolutionary theory is false, and other theories such as creationism or intelligent design fail to make testable predictions; they generally amount to "just-so stories" which provide explanations tailored to fit the known facts without providing useful models that could advance the course of human knowledge. Some people of faith admit the possibility that evolution is the mechanism chosen by a supposed creator to bring about the diversity of life which populates the earth, while some literalists or fundamentalists find the evolutionary theory of human origin to be at odds with their faith. I think it is unwise for faith and science to cross paths; best to take value from the better parts of each as you see fit.

hi,Evolution has happened from different stages over millions of years.In this evolution theory..1]Struggle for existence,means only strong living creature are live and others die.2]Use and disuse theory,means unnecessary parts in body will disappear and according to necessity new organs will develop.So this type of somany involved in this..at last human evoluted from monkey.

Yes and babies have been born with gills. Also embryos pass through a stage where they develop gill slits but these are then reabsorbed. Besides who really doubts evolution these days? Oh, except a few uneducated Yanks, there is so much evidence for it. Consider the Pepper moth a clear and documented case of evolutionary change. all the best urban
