Why can not it be argued that man descended from a humanoid monkey?

The development of man and apes is not consecutive steps, but parallel branches of evolution, the discrepancy between which is very deep in evolutionary terms. That is, humans and modern apes have a common ancestor. Further, their evolutionary development took the path of divergence (divergence of signs, accumulation of differences) in connection with adaptation to specific and different conditions of existence
