They aren't. There is no "missing link" and that idea was abandoned decades ago as false. Evolution is a branching tree, not a line of progression. There were several different species of hominids living on the planet at the same time for millions of years.

When their position is based on a false premise, it's all they got.

The phrase "missing link" is an invention of the news media...You, I and every other creature are linked to ancestors and our future offspring, but none of us are missing.

This is what science is doing today to discover the origins of humans.

While the DNA sequence of genes between humans and chimpanzees is nearly identical, there are large genomic 'gaps' in areas next to genes that can affect the extent to which the genes are 'turned on' and 'turned off'.

And the new research shows that these genomic gaps are mainly due to the insertion or deletion of viral-like sequences called retrotransposons that are known to comprise about half of the genomes of both species.

Understand that Christians don't buy the natural evolution theory either. There is no evidence that says there wasn't extraterrestrial intervention.

This is perfect reasoning to forward my pet theory that we are all computer AI in a game of "The Sims 10995" being played in the 29th century.... There's no evidence against it, after all!

There is no evidence of extraterrestrials...It is all imaginary or hoaxes, fuzzy out of focus photos and videos of unexplained objects.

Do some actual researching instead of just making statement based on your beliefs.
