Chimpanzees share 98.4% of our DNA, does that mean that Chimps can eventually evolve into a human form of biological life. Questions does this 1.6% difference mean that chimps lack the DNA sequences to eventually evolve or are the existence of the DNA sequences just not present and they don’t have the ability to evolve. My problem is with evolution of man and by no means am I bringing a benevolent all knowing entity into this conversation to explain the existence of man. Can this question be answered by pure science, objectively? Some would say that our fossil record is our proof. This theory of evolution based the fact that we looked like Ramapithecus lufagensis Did we evolve from a lower form of life? Do chimps have the DNA to evolve or do they lack the DNA and they will always be chimps? This is not homework :) I just struggle with my own mortality.
