Q: Did the Human Race evolve from Monkeys over a span of millions of years?
Comment: That is what Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution tells us.
Even if we assume this to be true, we are yet to find the missing transition link between monkey and man.
This jawbone from the place where it was spotted by Arizona State University grad student Chalachew Seyoum, puts the first members of the human genus Homo in the Afar region of Ethiopia half a million years earlier than previously thought.

A new reconstruction of this fossil Homo habilis skull, called Olduvai Hominid 7, finds a mix of primitive and more modern traits, including a larger brain than previously thought, suggesting a big-brained common ancestor in the Homo lineage.

"The new Ethiopian fossil, announced online by the journal Science, pushes the arrival of Homo on the East African landscape back almost half a million years, to 2.8 million years ago. The date is tantalizingly close to the last known appearance, around three million years ago, of Australopithecus afarensis, an upright-walking, small-brained species best known from the skeleton called Lucy, believed by many scientists to be the direct ancestor of our genus. The new jaw, known as LD 350-1, was found in January 2013 just a dozen miles from where Lucy was found in 1974."
This is Archaeology and Carbon Dating Science at its best with all its Human Limitations.
If Human beings existed 2.8 million to 3 million years ago on earth, and then if u extrapolate the Human Genetic Population Calculator back to 3 million years, we only have a huge Population Explosion of Human beings on Earth. If u extrapolate it back to a few million years for man to evolve from monkeys, then we have an Earth INFESTED by monkeys.
"Prehistory begins in the Paleolithic Era, or "Early Stone Age," which is followed by the Neolithic Era, or New Stone Age, and the Agricultural Revolution (between 8000 and 5000 BCE) in the Fertile Crescent"
This image depicts the Earliest Human Civilizations on Earth from 3000 BC to 1000 AD.
The earliest human civilizations from 3000 BC, would need to have a human population of a few zillions just for me to have been born in the 20th century.
I am told by the Scientific Community that the Human Population grew on a linear scale from 10 million in 10,000 BC to 7.000 million in 2000 AD in a linear fashion. Compare this to the Human Genetic Population Calculator and again the numbers do not add up nor does the linear scale add up.
One is not demeaning Science or Scientists. Science with Technology has provided Human Beings so-called Comforts (along with side effects). Yet Science with Technology has Limitations. The Limitation of being a Human Being in a Human Body.
The Scientific data about how human beings came to exist on earth does not add up to simple mathematical common sense. I need a pair of human beings to produce me. This pair needs another two pairs of human beings to produce them. Again, these two pairs need another four pairs of human beings to produce them...and so on...
