Monkeys are really our kin?

The monkeys are a group of mammals specializing in life on trees; almost all their species therefore live mainly on trees, leading diurnal life and omnivorous diet; also very important for understanding human nature, almost all live in flocks. The monkeys have prehensile hands and feet to grasp the branches of trees, and often in the American variety, the tail is also prehensile. The hands in particular are used to bring food to their mouths, for cleaning the hair, to care for the offspring; some species also use them to build shelters from the rain, a place to sleep and some simple tools.
If we do a thorough examination, monkeys have great similarities with men, both physical and behavioral, and there are no more doubts that by the family of great apes, such as gorillas and chimpanzees, derived about 6 million years ago that of hominids from which the man of today had origin.
