    1 cause we never evolved from apes.
    2 He does what is wife ( mother- in – law ) tells him.
    3 The bugs laid tiny eggs which fell in the fixtures, hence dead bugs in enclosed fixture.
    4 You think that your smart, but end up feeling really foolish.
    5 we do not really like the cold,
    6 We do not want to be considered weak.

    1 .Apes are like mirrors for most of the people. Mutual co existence
    2. Mentally too old to be joked
    3. Poor chaps were living before they entered
    4. It starts with confusion and ends up in confusion
    5. An assumption only. We try to keep 25 degree C all year round
    6. Well, it is a matter of mind set
    7. Perhaps, it was one of so many stupid actions that one takes for some petty gains

    apes are a separate creation.God,the almighty,created man in a perfect picture.God say in the holy Quran that he did not witness them(those who gave us these theories that man evolved from apes)the creation of heavens and the earth nor the creation of themselves.We can not compare animals with humanbeings,though some animals are better than humanbeings nowadays.

    1.I don’t know if people evolved from apes but even if they did, they did so according to the theory of evolution where certain environmental challenges give rise to mutation and then evolution!
