Monkeys will not turn into humans, their DNA does not have the predisposition. Barraning and great ecological change such as atmospheric content, climate changes, current safe habitates becomming too dangers, ect, there is no inputous for change, nothing to filter for a specific trait from the gene pool. As for the rise of species, it happens on a generational scale, taking hunderds of thousands of generations for a trait to go from supressed to expressed (not the same as dominant and recessive genes). Consider recorded history and the number of generations we can count. That is not enough time to see any major shifts. Plauges, war, andother factors have filtered some genetic traits though. It has been been demonstraed among some European populations that there is a much higer rate of a specific gene in their population than in the others of the world. This gene allows these people to be more resistant to infection than those lacking this trait. The areas where this trait is higer than average are regions ravaged by the varous plauges that moved through Europe. To complicate matters, human morality has slowed natural selection. As we develped civilization and moral codes, we have nullified some of the rules of natural selection, or at least, taken the edge off. Intraspecies violence is one way many creatures on Earth prevent an undesired trait from ever entering the gene pool. Another fo pach animals, is to cast the undesirable out. It should be prettey evident how laws that punish acts such as assault, murder, discrimination, and such go against some strategies to weed out the 'undesireables'. But not all rules of natural selection have fallen by the wayside, and the emotionally diven youth illustrate that human beings still have some of this etched into their bones, consider youth gangs and crime. Adults are not frr of all natural selection tendancies either, the focus just shifts to the passive rules. In this case, it all about sexual attraction. The next time you find somone attractive (in a 'reprodutive' way) consider what the traits are that you are attracted to, and start thinking of those traits in terms of offspring, either in terms of fertility or rearing. The exception to this may be homosexuality. Frome the purely evolutionary point of view, this does not make sence, untill you consider how civilization has changed the rules. Back to the idea of selecting desirable traits for offspring, consider one huge difference between mankind and animals, money, and the way it has allowed for prefessions. No longer does every member of the species need to know how to do somthing like forage, or hunt to survive. All a person needs to do to eat now is make mone, and shovel the food into his ot her mouth. So it is not prowess in foraing or hunting that is important. But physical prowss is still very important to human beings. Why are we willing to pay professional athletes so much money? Why reward them this greatly? When was the last time you heard of somone making an 8 figure paycheck for being able to solve the same equation or problem over and over (just under different conditions)? So we desire physical prowess (certainly paints a bleak picture for education) and reward it. Because of the role money plays, and the athlete's 'ability' to aquire a lot of it, physical prowess becomes an important trait because it implies the ability to provide. Ojnce again, human physcology is much more complex, but these overtones do manifest themselves. The moral of the story is th look long and hard at yorself and how you interact with other people. Ask yourself why you are behaving the way you are. This is not a thing many people can do though.
