    Probably a topic more suited for the general discussion section, not the general reptile discussion area :) Just sayin..

    It is definitely a thought-provoking question though, who knows what happened though, it is obvious that evolution takes stage over centuries/millennia so maybe the first cavemen dispatched them all as they competed for territory and they weren't yet evolved enough to prevail and they died out?

    They inbetween monkey/Human was killed by Homo-sapiens Hundreds of thousands of years ago... Thats one theory... the other is...

    As previously mentioned the out of Frankston theory :p ... Some scientist say the copious amounts of drugs an alcohol in there bodies Prevented there species from Further evolution lol

    heard from a history teacher back in high school as well that technically what we classify as Homo sapiens may be very different from the modern human today... Then again classification of species is ridiculously convoluted and complex to say the least.

    By in between possibly you are refering to Pithecanthropus erectus?
    If you wanna go all out, perhaps they havent all died out... Look at the yowie (and perhaps some other "people") :p

    This is a common misconseption. Homo Sapiens (humans) did not evolve from monekys. There was a species WAY WAY back. This species went in two different directions. Part of it evolved to humans, and part evolved to monkeys. Animals are still evolving very slowly, but you could say that humans sort of stop this proccess, as we do not allow for the natural selection proccess to occur.

    Calm down folks, I live in Frankston, however I was not born here so maybe that makes a difference.

    Shut up you, anyway, they're not monkeys they are half-orcs

    1) Human did not evolve from Monkeys, to my knowledge no scientific theory on evolution suggests this. But it is a common misconception perpetuated by those with an agenda to attack science.

    There is a lot of evidence out there on evolution and "missing links" and you only need to look as far as your own family to see "missing links".

    or the theory that primitive man was genetically altered by ancient aliens resulting in the human race.

    We are very distantly related to monkeys, we are closest to the apes. Monkeys have a tail and don't have an opposable thumb(?). Apes; Gorillas, Chimps, Orang utans and humans are Homonids and Gibbons are the lesser apes.

    Do you mean a legitimate "theory" by the scientific definition or a "theory" as in a proposed explanation?

    I hate this argument. As has been stated, it's a deliberate misquoting of the theory so that people can perpetuate the misconception in those too ignorant/unintelligent to look it up for themselves. As for the part about "would't there still be the in between evolving monkeys [read hominids] to humans" - no there wouldn't. Species evolve to become better suited to live in their environment. So as each new species came about, they were able to out hunt, out breed and generally just out survive the previous ancestors (survival of the fittest). These concepts aren't that difficult to understand. They just seem complex on the surface but if you read a book about it, you will see that it's actually an incredibly elegant, simple solution to the problem of how to survive in an ever changing world.
