Is there a good online game that is based on the principles of evolution?  There ought to be, in order to better help people understand the concepts.

The process of any lineage becoming human like would be given very small odds (although once established would become very successful.)

So the question is kinda sorta like asking why we aren't all wealthy corporate CEOs.

I always get a kick out of people who make comments like: 

“Lord Jesus pep can be blinded. If we came from apes why is there still apes [sic]” 

Duh. It's like asking, if I came from my grandparents, how come my grandpa is still alive? Of course when a species branches off from some group (often after it's isolated geographically or otherwise) there is no reason the first group (or certain species of it or it's descendents) cannot continue to survive and evolve too, each adapting to own niche. I can almost understand the misunderstanding from laymen who perhaps were not taught little if anything about evolution in school, but even some creationist leaders ask similar questions. Since the fallacy has been pointed out to them many times, at least some evidently do it knowingly.
