I am not going to teach you evolutionary theory from the ground up.
However, I will state that, in the idea of "survival of the fittest",
the term "fittest" has a specific meaning other than what is normally
associated with "superiority", and the idea of individuals in a species
being "fittest" was discarded decades ago.

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.

You can tell an ape's evolutionary superiority above humans by
advanced stregth and agility. Apes are clearly superior to
