Evolution explained in simple terms

I am an atheist. I have pronounced this fact numerous times throughout the history of this blog, and I am a strong supporter of the idea of scientific process, evidence and the validity of the theory of evolution.

Every once in a while, I hear this come up:

:::DERRRP::: "Well... if we came from monkeys, how come there are still monkeys?"

All this phrase does is reveal with no small measure of embarrassment on the behalf of the speaker, that they are completely ignorant. It is the dumbest thing to say.  They should be ashamed for being so willfully stupid.

So, I have created this primer that can somehow explain to these people in the simplest of terms, the concept of common ancestry.  Although the reality of this is much more complex, and the trees branched much more than once, it hopefully can fire up those underused grey matter cells and maybe teach someone a little something.

Oh, and again a note to all: this blog is not a place for debate. It is my autocracy. Trolls will be deleted. Maybe you can pray for me to change my ways. See if that works.  In the meantime, do not post divisive language here, I will delete it before a single person can read it. It will be a waste of your time.  And trust me, all the ire and rage and threats of hellfire and damnation in the world isn't going to make me change my mind. Only evidence will.  Enjoy.
