Apes are People, Too

Spain's parliament has voted to give the rights to life and freedom to apes. Keeping apes for use in circuses, television commercials or for filming will be forbidden. Zoos are still OK, but many will have to improve their conditions in the future to keep apes.

Right on.

Great. Now we will have apes serving us at McDonalds.

It's not apes. Yet. just people who can't get a job.
It was a joke. Note the ":D"
Yes. Notice the Yet.

Actually, they are primates, as are humans. I believe technically humans evolved in parallel to apes from a common ancestor, but that's an IIRC so any biologists feel free to correct me.

What's your evidence for humans not being evolutionarily linked to the other apes?

My evidence is the Bible!! If we were evolved from apes, why are there still apes that havento turned into humans yet?

Correct, studying zoology and evolutionary biology, I shall inform you that humans and other apes (yes, humans really are apes too) all branched off from each other from a common ancestor. Chimpanzees and bonobos are more closely related to humans than either of them are to gorillas.
which then means apes went one way, humans a different branch, ergo apes will probably never become human.
