If Man evolved from apes, why ar there still apes around, surely they'd all be Man by now? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28981586
They look that way because God encoded it that way in his design of such.
He coded Mankind different, as he did elephants, sheep etc.
Because Humans are SUB-SPECIES, a fork if you will.
Take a very early predecessor to the modern day great apes (including Humans) lets call this species A.
Now, somewhere in time species A produces a fork or a sub-species (perhaps a small group of species A became separated and adapted to different climate etc, triggering genetic mutation)... we call this species B and for this demonstration species B becomes what we know as the Neanderthal.
The Neanderthal then forked into yet another sub-species, species C or early Humans. Species C was more competitive than B, perhaps a stronger immune system, perhaps better at hunting and dominated species B's territory eventually forcing B's extinction (same as how foreign plant species dominate others when introduced)
All the while species A keep forking into various types of ape, monkey etc. The thing is, breaking into a sub species isn't always a good thing as with the Neanderthal, which explains why monkeys are still monkeys... the Human sub species was just a whole bunch of luckey flukes (thumbs, walking, etc) which helped boost brain development.
