    I believe that we have some genetics in common with with apes, orangutans and others but I don’t believe we came from them. I religious so I believe in Adam an Hawa. That being said, I totally respect anyone with a different opinion.

    Stardust and mud is essentially the same thing, just semantics.

    For you religious folk who do not believe in evolution, can you explain to me how evolution conflicts with god?
    Evolution doesn't say we evolved from apes. It says millions of years ago we had a common ancestor.
    The species overtime diverged into separate lineages one leading to apes and the other leading to early hominids and eventually modern humans.

    This diagram should give you a rough idea of what I'm talking about.

    Well in the Quran it’s says that we are the children of Adam and Hawa and the Quran is the word of God and I take Gods word of scientists any day. But just because their were beings that had the same genetics than us doesn’t me they are our ancestors. It could been that they just had the same genetics than us. My problem with people who believe in evolution is, that they believe everyone else is stupid to not believe in it.. I believe in science but I believe in God more.

    The problem with Adam and Hawa is the lack of genetic diversity and the fact that it wouldn't have been possible for two people to create humanity in it's current size and dominance.

    In Kitab al-Hayawan (Book of the Animals), the 9th-century scholar al-Jāḥiẓ references several facets of natural selection, such as animal embryology, adaptation, and animal psychology. One notable observation al-Jāḥiẓ makes is that stronger rats were able to compete better for resources than small birds, a reference to the modern day theory of the "struggle for existence."[22] In the 11th century, the scholar Sami S. Hawi argues that Persian scholar Ibn Miskawayh wrote about the evolution of man in his Fawz al-aṣghar.[23]

    The 14th-century influential historiographer and historian Ibn Khaldun wrote the Muqaddimah or Prolegomena ("Introduction") on what he referred to as the "gradual process of creation." He stated that the Earth began with abiotic components such as "minerals." Slowly, primitive stages of plants such as "herbs and seedless plants" developed and eventually "palms and vines." Khaldun connects the later stages of plant development to the first stages of animal development.

    Why would that be a problem? I think the resilience of life to adapt and survive for billions of year and for all life to share a common thread is quite beautiful.

    If evolution isn’t true, how can you explain the neanderthal, denisovan and other homo erectus DNA found in humans?

    I don't think one has to be stupid for opposing evolution. Religious background and lack of scientific education are the biggest obstacles. In fact, religious views or background account for pretty much all of the opposition. There are so many smart people who due to myriad of complex reasons believe in strange things. I remember there was even a book with a title along the lines of why smart people believe in stupid things, though for the life of me I can't even find it now.

    Evolution is far more intuitive and far better supported than many other pretty much opposition-free scientific theories. The difference is that those theories haven't emerged against the backdrop of thousands of years of belief systems that had formed their own explanation of life on earth.

    Honestly I like the idea of evolution and the dinosaurs clearly can be expained by the quran as having been wiped out during the flood. However i cannot understand why the other monkeys haven't evolved and i'm not just talking about the criminals creating ghettoes and commiting crimes in around the world.

    These individuals were never mentioned back when I had biology classes.

    The teachers always stressed the fact that Charles Darwin was the first individual to take note of this natural selection phenomenon. It's Eurocentrism.

    I've read the book called 'Book of Animals, written by Al Jahiz. It's phenomenal. You should buy it. I think it's been translated into English too and you can find it on Amazon. I read the original Arabic.
