Saying humans evolved from apes, and saying “Modern monkeys and humans share a common ancestor” both are SAME IN PRINCIPLE as common ancestor is one species and monkeys & humans are totally different species. This is what exactly Darwin admitted would not happen: ““Not one change of species into another is on record ... we cannot prove that a single species has been changed." (Charles Darwin, My Life &Letters). ". ... Paleobiology, vol 6(1), January 1980, pg 127.”
It is like saying I was in bondage with iron chain, now I am not in bondage as iron chain is replaced with golden chain!
