An assumption on your part.  And a projection.  I've commonly been 
shown linear timelines on evolutionary development that show only 
one line of progression, as opposed to two lines.  Namely, from ape 
to human, as opposed to apes and humans from a common ancestor.  My 
assessment is that many scientists today have simply veered from 
Darwin's original theories.

Perhaps you can do a little better than narrow-minded 
presuppositions and actually answer questions when they are posited, 
if indeed you have an answer.  Your misrepresentation is not a valid 
debate tactic, if in fact you are attempting to validate some point.

You also wrote:

"...demonstrate that you know little about evolutionary theory."

Then explain your stance and why you believe it, instead of simply 
resorting to petty intellectual condescension.  When you make a 
scientific assertion, then back it up, instead of just expecting me 
to believe it like the dogmatic religionists do.  I think that 
you're just offended that I didn't take your word for it.  And 
instead of actually presenting a case for your assertions, you 
prefer to use a mode of counter-attack through the use of 
misrepresentation and intellectual condescension.  It's not working 
here.  Try again.
