The short answer is that the apes evolved from us by cross breeding millions of years ago.

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.
