I've always thought the gap between man and ape to be strange, particularly from the standpoint of evolution. As animals progressed up the evolutionary scale, they would naturally become more capable of surviving. This leads me to ask why is the "inferior" ape family still in existence but not a single one of the presumed intermediate forms, especially since they are supposed to be more advanced in evolution?

As usual, your post indicates that you don't have any idea what you're talking about.

The species did not go from ape to ape-man to man. It went from primate-ancestor to apes, men, chimpanzees, etc. All species are still around because all of them are equally fit life forms. Every species that is alive today represents the end of a long evolutionary process -- just as true for tapeworms as for people. Evolution isn't a forward progression from worst to best, or from small to big; it is a branching hierarchy.

But keep making those false assertions for us to correct; how else will you learn what the real theory is?
