You might be on to something OP.
The theory of evolution is nothing more than adaptation to different environments. Variables like climate, disaster, predators, and to a point personal choice don't affect every member of the same species in the same way. If a group of 100 monkeys split into 2, half went east and half went west, the eastern monkeys stayed in trees while the western monkeys took to land, over time those monkeys would be extremely different than one another. The plains monkeys would be bigger, badder, and more group oriented to fend off the large plains predators, meanwhile the arboreal monkeys would be lean, fast, and relatively smaller to maneuver through trees.
Not only that, but their diets would be completely different, making their bodies different, changing their diet from forager to hunter/gatherer, and then from there would change based on what happened in that specific area. That's why there are still monkeys around, since not every member of that specific prehistoric monkey species left the trees to become the precursor of the great apes.1

We didn't come from monkeys. Earlier humans resembled apes and didn't have higher thinking abilities. Apes- and all other primates- have the same ancestors as humans do.
Evolution is 100% fact, and it makes complete sense if you educate yourself.
You ask why do we talk and look different than apes- well hun that's the concept of evolution. We evolved..2
