If we're descended from apes, why are there still apes around? (Talk.Origins)

Talk Origins is really scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one. Their source is not even a creationist source. To get this claim Talk Origins had to go to an anti-creationist source that uses Talk Origins itself as a reference. No creationist scientist uses it. The only creationist reference to it is AIG's warning not to use it. This straw man is of the worst type.
(Talk.Origins quotes in blue)
Creationists themselves recognize the invalidity of this claim (AIG n.d.).
To Talk Origins credit they do point out that creationists do accept this claim but they do so weakly. It needs to be pointed out that it is simply not used.
