The Human Evolution
By Tyqueshia Baker
The theory of human evolution began in Africa about six million years ago and it describes the very long process that our ancestors went through ultimately to become modern humans. This process have been uncovered by studying fossils and understanding the underlying theory of evolution, and while new fossils are uncovered every decade revealing new chapters scientist continue to study.
Since scientist developed the ability to decode the genome and compare the genetic makeup of species. About 95.8 of our genetics and chimpanzees are identical. This finding means chimps are the closes living biological relatives to humans, but it does not mean humans are evolved from chimps. What it does mean is that humans share, A common ancestor with modern african apes, making us very, very distant cousins. We are therefore related to these other living primates but we did not descend from them. Modern humans differ from apes in many significant ways. Humans brain are larger and more complex people have elaborate forms of communication and culture and people habitually walk upright.
