"And God went on to say let us make man in our image according to our likeness... and God proceeded to create the man in his image ,in God's image He create him; male and female he created them." Ge 1:26,27 Jehovah God created the first human pair.
this is a question that you will never get a straight answer religious people will say god scientific people will say big bang evolution its all on the person but the more. better question is where do we go after we die. .... do we turn into plants other animals do our souls roam the earth forever ..
All hominids and apes appear to have evolved from a common ancestor, but man did not evolve from apes that you find today. Apes have a larger number of chromosomes than man, and they aren't all morphologically or banded similarly. This means mankind did not descend from apes, monkeys or chimps, but that they all share a common ancestor fairly far back in the evolutionary tree. The chimpanzee-human last common ancestor (CHLCA, CLCA, or C/H LCA) is the last species that humans, bonobos and chimpanzees share as a common ancestor. The age of the CHLCA is an estimate. The fossil find of Ardipithecus kadabba, Sahelanthropus tchadensis, and Orrorin tugenensis are closest in age and expected morphology to the CHLCA and suggest the LCA (last common ancestor) is older than 7 million years. The earliest studies of apes suggested the CHLCA may have been as old as 25 million years; however, protein studies in the 1970s suggested the CHLCA was less than 8 million years in age. Genetic methods based on Orangutan/Human and Gibbon/Human LCA times were then used to estimate a Chimpanzee/Human LCA of 6 million years, and LCA times between 5 and 7 million years ago are currently used in the literature. Assuming a common ancestor, there may have been a time when hominid and chimps could interbreed, which would expand the range within which divergence is hard to determine. However, they cannot interbreed today. Some have argued that this supposed ancestor was so close to the chimp of today, that not many differences could be seen. The supposed common ancestor has not been positively identified from the fossil record.
There are several species of hominids that have inhabited the earth and still do. All together, they are called homo sapiens.
However, some of them - the Cro-Magnons are descended from apes(they've got ape boold types - B+ and A+). The other species - the Neanderthals have a different type of blood resus 0, type 0. They are not descended from apes, at least not the same type of Apes. Neanderthals are either another branch of hominid evolution on Earth or they have an alien origin. The third hominid has an elongated head and no official name(you won't find it in the books because it's not an official information for a reason). Their origin is not earthlike because if you think about it, there is no earth mammal that has an elongated head. However, there are plenty of bugs like that and most of them are considered to have landed on earth with crushing meteorites. So, the bugs are alien. Do the math.
Contemporary homo sapiens are a mixture of all these 3 species and may be some more. Some people are more pure, others are more hybrid.
