I've not referenced that I don't believe in evolution.  Rather, I've 
referenced that I don't believe that humans evolved from apes.  
There's a difference.

I've had people attempt to show me 'proof' of a progression from ape 
to human, but they didn't do a very good job unfortunately.  Nothing 
personal, but even various 'evidences' have multiple interpretations.

Do you have proof that you can present directly, or are you going on 
hearsay?  What specifically in the human genome makes you think that 
we evolved from apes?

To me that's no better than saying that 'I have proof that God 
exists'.  But the data can be interpreted any number of ways, and is 
often tainted by conditioned presuppositions.

A concern which arises for me about the critical thought processes 
of people is that they are willing to question one field, but not 
another.  They are willing to challenge what doesn't make ready 
sense to them, yet they often never dare to question what is 
seemingly true.  They just don't go there.  Yet much of our common 
understanding is tainted by illusion in the first place.
