The article presents an subjective vision of human evolution dating back to man’s monkey ancestors. This evolution was very fast took only a few million years. It was started with the transition to the life in an open savannah which created a selection pressure on bipedalism and zooming group. This implied, in turn, the selection pressure on brain development and the growing role of social environment. At a certain stage of development tribes and their culture were formed, and Darwinian evolution was, in the sphere of the mind and customs, replaced by cultural evolution. This evolution was much faster, as it was based on the inheritance of acquired features. Rapid evolution of man was based on positive feedback and did not require the intervention of supernatural powers, such as aliens or God. If God created man, he trusted the mechanisms of evolution, as in the case of other species.
