We don’t come from ape-like beings, we come from the mind and heart of God with a portion of His wisdom and ability!

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,…  And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 27,28,31
