There are two views on human origins. One is high, the other is low. The high view has a poem that summarizes who human beings are:

So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.

The low view has its own poem:

Once I was an amoeba
Beginning to begin
Then I was a tadpole
With my tail tucked in
Then I was a monkey
Hanging from a tree
Now I’m a college professor
With a Ph.D!!!
