If we evolved from chimps – why are there still chimps?

If we evolved from chimps – why are there still chimps?

  1. Humans didn’t evolve from chimps we share a common ancestor. What this means is that several millions years ago there was group of apes that we do not see today. This group of apes split and some evolved into chimps and some evolved into people. So people and chimps have lots of things in common but are also very different

  2. This is similar to posing the question if everything evolved from bacteria, why is there still bacteria? Evolution is not a straight line that depletes all other species along the way resulting in humans. Evolution should be visualised as a complex tree with many branches. We share a common ape-like ancestor with all other primates but we share a distant common ancestor with everything else.
