Help an atheist understand evolution better please
Hey folks... this is an easy one, I'd address it, but I'm short on time (moving day), so maybe some of you can take it and I'll direct him here. This was sent to the Rational Response Squad mailbox:
Message: First, let me say that I consider myself an Athiest and I do buy into the theory of Evolution. However, here is a question I cannot answer and I was looking for help.
Part of Evolution is/was the process of how we humans came to exist. Our
ancestors are said to have been primates. Now let me see if I can word this question clearly.
Why is there a gap, in known species, between primate and human? If Evolution is a process, shouldn\t some sort of apish human currently exist in the world?
An animal that hasn't quite progressed fully?
These questions make me think that Evolution has stopped occuring, thus posing the question that it even existed in the first place. And that bothers me.
Although I see more holes in Creationism, I do consider this a whole in our believed theory and was hoping you could help me out.
Thank you for your time.
