Why not? Why should all kind of apes and monkeys have been deveoped into some kind of

--You don't know how much I think the living things have changed, but at the same time 
you do realise that there have been some change.

-- If a child is born, that don't mean that all the grandfathers suddenly dissapeare. 
Also the grandfathers goes on living. The same with new and old spisces. That's how 
new spiesces evolve.

---I think we can be quite sure about that that common ancestor also was an ape! So 
what's the difference?

-- It's not all theory. A lot of arceologocal evidence as well as results from the DNA 
investigations tell the story loud and clear. If the result of this don't fit into the 
religious fary tales the only solution is of course denial of facts (as churches 
always have been spcialists on). Facts that points in an other directions than the 
fary tales.

And now you are once again going to ask why there still is monkeys and apes?
