Darwin had a working theory of species origins because of his grasp of them, according to historians and scientific philosophers. Darwin believed that species did not fundamentally differ from "varieties" within species, but was distinct due to the development of gaps in formerly continuous morphological variation. Similar arguments can still be made in support of current population genetics.
The main goal is to show that the pan genus of apes did not evolve into humans. Pan apes and people descended from the same extinct ancestors. In addition, we still belong to the ape family (Hominidae).
A portion of the position of homo sapiens in Darwin's theory is described. The consequences of the theory of evolution are one of its most contentious elements.
