My science teacher told me that humans originally evolved from small, furry creatures that hibernated during the ice age, is this true?

Well so far I have heard that we are created from amoeba type organisms from the seas, apes, aliens and now little furry creatures that lived in caves.. I personally believe in what the Bible tells us.. God created us from the dust of the earth and when we die we return back to the dust of the earth. Much of the stories of the Bible has been proven. None of these other have been. They are just speculations of other ideas.

LOL... She is allowed her opinion. Did she show any proof of this to the class?

Well, teachers have to believe something too I suppose. They probably should be teaching FACTS though... and just expressing opinions.

Humans are mammals and all mammals share a common ancestor, this ancestor was a small rodent like creature that existed when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth. It had nothing to do with the ice-age's however, humans already walked the Earth during the last ice-age.

That's a thought. There are caterpillars that's do that. They come out every seven years or something like that.

The jury is still out on that one! I'd rather not think I evolved from a small furry creature. Question that theory, research it on you own and make up your own mind!

The little furry creatures, who lived underground, were the ones who survived the dinosaur extinction, most mammals evolved from them. That's the scientific explanation as to where we originated.

so what do we call these creatures?

It's not my theory, ask the scientists, for all I know they could have been rats.
