After the publication of "On the Origin of Species" by Charles Darwin, Evolution through natural selection was rather quickly adopted by scientists. However, in its infancy scientists imagined evolution as linear and progressive. The early expectation in scientific communities was that modern humans evolved from existing ape populations gradually and that there had to be fossil evidence that links humans to apes.
Apes are not evolving into humans anymore. Does this mean that the school of thought born with Charles Darwin’s book “Descent of Man” published in 1871 was just a fallacy? Should scientists officially issue an acceptance to the Bible’s account of genesis? Or can it be that humans did not evolve from apes?
