it is a common arrangement that say if evolution is true then why there is a monkey until this moment . I now that evolution is correct but who i can answer this question .

Monkeys and humans are not the same animal. Evolution is not a straight line, it is a branching tree. Monkeys are on one path and have STAYED on that path. Humans, a very long time ago, were on the same path, but branched off into their own path.

I cannot think of any reason why there shouldn't be monkeys. Recently (in terms of evolution) there also have been more of neighboring human species around. We were likely the reason they became extinct and the survival of higher primates doesn't look safe either. We are just another dry-nosed primate. A more successful one, hence still a primate.

why not all the Monkeys get evolve to human

Why don't cats evolve to lions? It's simply the case that both models are successful in their corner of the world. And we still evolve! And I assume other species, too.

Your question stems from not understanding a lot of things. It is like asking 'why doesn't Evolution work to add fingers to families of concert pianists.'
Too many assumptions. Evolution has no goal, it doesn't "think". It does not "think" we humans are the epitome of all life. We are not an endpoint or a goal. We arose in response to lots of random events, usually unpleasant, way back in time. It won't happen again.

If you know programming, Evolution is very like Langston's Ant or Conway's Life. Complex behavior arises from following simple rules overs billions of iterations (or in Biology, generations).

No monkeys evolved into humans. Please reread post #2.
can the human get evolve
Humans are still evolving, yes.

No, you are mis-reading the chart. Ocean rust was a stage in the Earth, like an ice age.

how we evolve

[PLAIN said:
http://www.pnas.org/content/104/52/20753][/PLAIN] [Broken]
Abstract:

Genomic surveys in humans identify a large amount of recent positive selection. Using the 3.9-million HapMap SNP dataset, we found that selection has accelerated greatly during the last 40,000 years. We tested the null hypothesis that the observed age distribution of recent positively selected linkage blocks is consistent with a constant rate of adaptive substitution during human evolution. We show that a constant rate high enough to explain the number of recently selected variants would predict (i) site heterozygosity at least 10-fold lower than is observed in humans, (ii) a strong relationship of heterozygosity and local recombination rate, which is not observed in humans, (iii) an implausibly high number of adaptive substitutions between humans and chimpanzees, and (iv) nearly 100 times the observed number of high-frequency linkage disequilibrium blocks. Larger populations generate more new selected mutations, and we show the consistency of the observed data with the historical pattern of human population growth. We consider human demographic growth to be linked with past changes in human cultures and ecologies. Both processes have contributed to the extraordinarily rapid recent genetic evolution of our species.

@rashida564, you will learn much more about evolution by actually READING about evolution, not asking semi-random questions on an internet forum.

Let's reiterate, monkeys never turned into humans. Both monkeys and humans evolved from a common ancestor. the reason they evolved into different things is because they evolved in different environments (the mother group got separated into at least two groups and each group evolved in their own way according to the details of their envrionment).

I don't think so
So, you think that modern humans just sprang into being like magic?

"Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake coming down from the trees in the first place, and some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no-one should ever have left the oceans." (D. Adams, 1st vol. of 5 from the trilogy)

Monkeys aren't humans. Humans have been able to evolve in a way monkeys have not been able to discover for millions of years.

It's not a matter of "discovery" --- that's not how evolution works.

Sorry… didn't realise I said that until you pointed it out
