The headline “I’m a Science student, I believe my ancestors were not apes: Satyapal Singh — First Post” grabbed my attention today.
In the post, the most interesting paragraph that I encountered was :
“I am a science student and I have completed my PhD in Chemistry. Who all were the ones speaking against me? And, how many people stood by me? We should be compelled to think. We get scared of the press. If not today, tomorrow. If not tomorrow, then in 10–20 years, people will accept what I said. At least I believe that my ancestors were not apes” he said at a book launch.
Time to break some myths.
If not tomorrow, then in 10–20 years, people will accept what I said.
I’m accepting what you just said two days ago, and I assume it’s the case with every anthropologist.
I’m sorry to say but .. this thought of yours isn’t new, It’s been there for years.
And yes, you definitely are right on this one, we still are taught that :
“we evolved from apes”.
But, it’s because of “Our Faulty Education System”
I‘m going to stop here as this post is not about throwing dirt on a famous personality nor debating on our education system model,
this post is about the truth behind our origin.
Instead of just saying that “our ancestors were not apes”,
Let’s raise few interesting questions.
Proving Satyapal Singh’s Statement :
Lloyd Pye an ardent Interventionist, says that Charles Darwin and his theories of evolution and natural selection are wrong or at best incomplete, as it doesn’t include the pre-history of humans. The fabled missing link between pre-humans and us is actually more like 15–30 generations of fossils missing, not just one.
Here are the some points that will make you think!
- Why are humans so physically weak compared to our closest genetic relatives?
- Why do humans in no way resemble those ancient cousins of ours the so-called “pre”-humans?
- Why do we have fused 46 chromosomes instead of 48 in our ancestors, the apes?
- Is it possible for the brain capacity of hominids to go from 900cc to around 1,400cc in 400,000 years? A geological blink of an eye, that 50 percent increase is what the fossils point to.
- Why does the human genome clock only start about 200,000 years ago but anthropologists insist we descend from creatures 6.0 million years old?
- Cro-magnons (earliest modern humans) didn’t show up until 55–70,000 years ago. No fossil record. Our neanderthal cousins H.erectus are too different for us to be evolved from.
Big brows, no forehead, big fat flat noses, large nocturnal eyes, thicker jaws with no chin, longer arms, higher muscle mass with 5–10 times more strength, thicker denser bones, triangle rib cage, etc.
If we were really evolved from these sorts of species there would be a lot more fossils of this transition from ‘them’ to ‘us. We have none!
- There was no slow transition.
In fact the change was not transition at all it was more like trans-mutation.
- How did we evolve so quickly and was it natural at all?
Why doesn’t the human fossil record fit into the theory of evolution?
These questions also apply on another theory which tells us that we and “the apes” were evolved from a common ancestor called “Hominids”.

Purpose of this Blog :
I’m actually working on an evolution theory for few weeks that will try to clear the most important question of mankind :
- How and from Where we got here?
- What are we?
- Where’s our origin?
So, when I saw the post, I tried myself to stop writing this post, but I couldn’t help it.
The question was intriguing to me, and so, I smashed my keys and wrote this rudimentary piece.
I’m sorry if this post pricks some prestigious eyes, I admit, I went over the top at some places.
In my own defense, I just wanted to put the raw scientific side.
It was, by no mean, written to degrade anyone.
On top of that, I am just 17 year old kid.
I hope that his near and dear ones will not attack me :)
Satyapal Singh is a great persona, and I admire him, that’s the reason why I reacted to the post.
And, I am sure that he’ll understand my intent.
I’ll be putting the new evolution theory in some weeks, you can join me over my social handles to contribute or to know more about it.
I’ll be more than happy to connect with awesome people.
