That humans are directly descended from chimpanzees is indicated by much evidence.

No, that's only pure Darwin's speculation, and it is not logical.
Chimpanzee has about 99% genom of a human (correct me if I am wrong
and it had to be our ancestor.
No-one will ever convince me otherwise, 'cause it is only political corectness that says humans cannot come from monkeys.
No-one will ever convince me otherwise
Why are we not animals?
...However, the most important clue about our direct descent from chimpanzees is that only chimpanzees wage wars in our, human, understanding of the phenomenon...
Hi. I've only skimmed through a little of this post. You (aspagnito) seem determined that humans are directly descended from chimpanzees rather than just from a common ancestor that both species had many years ago. I know it can be unpleasant to have your ideas challenged and I can see that you have spent time doing some research and devloping a lot of ideas and information. A lot of it, I'm sure, is very good. However, it might be that some of the early assumptions you have made aren't as solid (likely to be true) as you might have hoped for.
Unfortunately, 99.99% of the reactions look exactly like the one in this forum, and the trick is not to worry about it and do your own thang.
So you probably don't want to tell me that it's pure coincidence that such close cousins have from such a time created in parallel something as complex as the mechanism of wars
Hi. My comments weren't meant to cause offence. The forum is nominally a place to discuss something and it can be helpful to have others check the work even though sometimes that might identify a problem. You (aspagnito) are looking on the negative side of things. Some people have looked at your work and some of the replies have mentioned some problems or concerns, you see that as negative thing. It's not all negative. Someone has actually looked at your work (they didn't have to), that is a positive thing. You've had several replies from different people and this is only a small forum with about two dozen regular users. It's an interesting topic to most people (we are all human and interested in humans) and you present it well (starting with an interesting photo might have been quite a good attention grabber, for example). There's a lot about the post that you are doing right and well. You may find a lot of other posts in the new theories section and it might look as if no-one is finding problems but it is usually just that very few are reading those posts any longer.Quote from: aspagnito on 12/11/2022 19:36:45Unfortunately, 99.99% of the reactions look exactly like the one in this forum, and the trick is not to worry about it and do your own thang. That's probably a very good attitude for many things in life, including coming up with new theories, it's certainly very heroic. However, it's not always the most efficient way of working. You can solve a problem with grit and determination but it's also possible to study the existing knowledge and experience of human society. A combination of determination and studying the existing field of knowledge usually gets to the solution faster. Best Wishes.
