Let's say your great-great-great-grandfather had two brothers. Each had children, who had children, right down the lines to you and your extended family.
If you attended a reunion with the wider family tree, you would find that you have very little resemblance to your distant cousins despite having a common ancestor.
You would notice a lot of difference in height, coloring, talents and intelligence in merely six generations.
We are related to monkeys, but our common ancestor was eons ago, not just a few generations. The common ancestor with our closest cousins, the chimps, was millions of years ago.
We don't need faith to confirm this; it's evident in our shared DNA and the fossil record.
The Smithsonian is a far better place to learn of human history than the musings of the ancients. The wonders that science has discovered far exceed the myopic world view of any religion.
