Evidence of human origin from monkeys can be divided into comparatively anatomical, embryological, paleontological, genetic. To the comparative anatomical one can attribute the fact that a person has all the signs of a class of mammals, the order of primates, the presence of rudiments and atavisms (see answers to the topic: the place of man in the system of the organic world). Embryonic: repetition of the passed evolutionary stages in embryogenesis, development of gill slits in the embryo, growth of hair, tail. Paleontological: on the timeline, you can see that the farther into the past, the more “monkeys” a person’s face appears. Actually, at a mark earlier than 20,000 years ago, the human skeleton has many primitive features, large superciliary arches, stooped posture, etc. At around 4,400,000 years ago, this is the usual “monkey” – dravipitek. Modern types of man are not present in ancient layers, nor are primitive versions of man present in new layers. This indicates a gradual change that has brought our species from one form to another. Genetic: the similarity of the genotypes of some species of primates and humans up to 99%, the presence of common viruses. Individually, these signs are lightweight, but in the aggregate, according to some scientists, they prove the origin of man from a monkey.
