The Great Evolution Misconception.

I am going to point out the great fallacy in the debate of evolution. The idea that one species evolves into another one. This is false. Evolution states no such thing. Evolution classes branches of development within a species.

You begin with a group of separate unicellular creatures which each evolve to become multicellular. Each becomes a separate species at that moment. These species evolve along separate paths. Many become many separate species of plants and many become many separate species of animals. The apes branched out from a singular species just as a human genealogical tree branches out. Chimpanzees evolved ALONGSIDE humans, they did not BECOME humans. The evolutionary split came many millions of years ago. We went one way and they went another. The idea that humans came from apes is a complete misunderstanding of the process.

I hope that clears that up for those of you who think evolution claims that humans evolved from apes. IT DOESN"T!!!! It claims that early humans were APELIKE!!!
Even scientists get this so wrong it makes my brain itch.

Point out one place where "scientists get this wrong" please. Your explanation is clumsy but essentially correct. Humans and chimps share a common ape-like ancestor about 5 to 7 million years ago. This is how scientists explain it. The more complex aspect is how scientist know it's 5 to 7 million years ago. This is done through looking at mutation rates in mitochondrial DNA.
