The close evolutionary relationship between modern human apes and modern chimpanzee apes, a basic scientific fact that makes Jeebus cry.

Chimpanzee, sometimes colloquially chimp, is the common name for the two extant species of ape in the genus Pan. The Congo River forms the boundary between the native habitat of the two species:

Chimpanzees are members of the Hominidae family, along with gorillas, humans, and orangutans. Chimpanzees split from human evolution about 6 million years ago and the two chimpanzee species are the closest living relatives to humans, all being members of the Hominini tribe (along with extinct species of Hominina subtribe). Chimpanzees are the only known members of the Panina subtribe. The two Pan species split only about one million years ago.


  1. If evolution is True then why are there still monkeys?

  2. For the same reason there are any other species. Evolution is a branching process. Of course you were just pretending to be a creationist, who often ask even dumber questions.

  3. If man arose from apes, then why is the book called "Descent of Man?"
