Humans, gorillas and chimpanzees evolved from a common ancestor, with the evolutionary path of the latter two diverging from humans between 8 and 4 million years ago. That common ancestor may have been either Nakalipithecus or Ouranopithecus. The evidence clearly supports evolution. You're simply going to have to modify your beliefs accordingly. If not for n just telling them that "God done it", but that's what responsible parenting is all about.
then where is the fossil evidence? you people are incredulous! you can fit the fossil evidence for your postulations on a coffee table! there are over 100 million extant fossils and the fossils for so called intermediary are none existent, in many cases entire skeletal structures drawn from a lower jaw bone and a few teeth. . but please dont let the evidence, or in your cases lack of it, get in the way of a good story!
note to the opening poster. dude if you want a publication that discusses this, go here.
you do not need to be in any way affiliated with jehovahs witnesses, for these books are designed for use by members of the public and are given fee of charge. we pay the expenses of shipping and printing. wish you all the best with your family!
the creator book is an excellent publication!although if you have really young children it is quite involved. there is another earlier publication termed. life how did it get here by evolution or creation, and is also quite involved, although one must respect that many of the scientific arguments need not be so, for again these are written for the layman, not a professor of biology!
wish you well my friend
