Modern humans ( Homo sapiens , primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens ) are the only extant members of Hominina tribe (or human tribe), a branch of the tribe Hominini belonging to the family of great apes. They are characterized by erect posture and bipedal locomotion ; manual dexterity and increased tool use, compared to other animals; and a general trend toward larger, more complex brains and societies. [3] [4]

Early hominins—particularly the australopithecines , whose brains and anatomy are in many ways more similar to ancestral non-human apes —are less often referred to as "human" than hominins of the genus Homo . [5] Several of these hominins used fire , occupied much of Eurasia , and gave rise to anatomically modern Homo sapiens in Africa about 200,000 years ago. [6] [7] They began to exhibit evidence of behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago. In several waves of migration , anatomically modern humans ventured out of Africa and populated most of the world. [8]

    Human Evolution: What is it?
    Human evolution is not supported by the fossil evidence. Much of the alleged evidence that filled text books over the last 50 years has now been reclassified or rejected altogether. The missing links are still missing.

    Human Evolution: The Most Recent Find
    In July 2002, anthropologists announced the discovery of a skull in Chad with "an unusual mixture of primitive and humanlike features." The find was dubbed "Toumai" (the name give to children in Chad born close to the dry season) and was immediately hailed as "the earliest member of the human family found so far." By October 2002, a number of scientists went on record to criticize the premature claim -- declaring that the discovery is merely the fossil of an ape. 10

    The apes of today have evolved from their ancestor as well, just like we have. The ancestor to us and the apes would have been more ape-like. The ancestors of us live in a different habitat to most other apes eg more dry/savannah type of habitat, so we had different selection pressures to the various ape ancestors. The first major difference was the change to bipedalism..the ability to walk on 2 legs...this would not have happened overnight but the abilty to be able to do this more easily than others and for longer periods was an advantage and so would have increased in frequency in a population until the majority or all had the ability and those that were born with features which allowed them to walk on 2 legs more easy than being on 4 limbs were favoured for...there are lots of things that need to change to allow this.eg foramen magnum position, shape of ribs, shape of spine, shape of pelvis, hip joint, vagus angle, knee joint, big toe in alignment with other toes, feet under the skull for balance etc These things gradually changed.

    The argument is that we have a common ancestor with other apes today. not that we evolved from the apes which are present today. Basically at one point in time a species of ape was diverged into two populations with different environment pressures. These different environmental pressures caused that common ancestor to diverge into humans on the one side and chimpanzees on the other.

    well if you go back far enough, sure. but since we are great apes, the first step going back would have to be a common ancestor of other great apes..
