    Do Scientists really believe we come from apes?

    Because humans are primates, they may in fact be considered great apes. However humans, chimps and bonobos have a common ancestor some 6 to 7 million years ago and gorillas, chimps, bonobos and humans have a common ancestor ~14 million years in the past. None of the above mentioned great apes looks anything like their common ancestor (except for the bonobo & chimp which had a common ancestor ~ 1 million yrs ago) as all of them evolved over time. The chimp & bonobo can breed & produce fertile hybrid offspring because they have the same number of chromosomes.
    Using DNA it has been established that human chromosome #2 is almost identical to 2 chimp chromosomes that either fused to produce the Homo genus or split to form the Pan genus sometime in the past.
    The very 1st primates were prosimians that first appeared ~ 60 million years ago. Although they looked a bit like small rats they were the common ancestor to all of today's primates. Micro evolution over time becomes macro evolution.
