Darwinism is evil, isn't it?

What kindness and understanding can be expected from people who know that monkeys gave birth to them through a common ancestor?

Well they didn't, as you have produced a falsehood (again), but the monkeys and humans shared a common ancestor. I'd rather the kindness shown below than your sort - dealing with the hot weather in this case.

Sometimes reality is unkind and hard to grasp. For example, picture two hamsters. You have two great pets, it seems. Then one hamster tries to fight or eat the other one.

Darwinism is absolutely despicable, fancy detailing how animals and other things are so varied - truly evil???

BUT wait ... many species (including humans and dogs) have realised that showing kindness and compassion can get you benefits, that's what evolution shows.

Apes... How many times do you need to be told...
APES.
Go back far enough and we are descended from "monkeys". In fact "monkeys" is a problem that applies to English and maybe a couple of other languages. Spanish for example uses the same term for monkeys and apes. At any rate, by cladistics, and that is a far superior classification system to Linnaean classification we still are "monkeys".

No.

Natural processes have no moral implications. They are amoral. Morally neutral.
Moral agents engage in actions which can be valued as good or evil.
Nature does not.

One has nothing to do with the other. And I'm just ignoring the blatant intellectually dishonest misrepresentation of evolution theory. But then again, I don't expect any better coming from you anymore.

If a person needs a god to tell them to be kind and empathetic, and to not kill or steal, they have a problem.
Yes. That means they are incapable of genuine empathy and kindness, which happen to be products of our evolution.

That's kind of the way I understand it too. Minus the last sentence, which I didn't know about.

Monkey and ape descended from a common ancestor, propliopithecidae.

When the split from propliopithecidae occured there were no monkeys or apes.

From there apes evolved from catarrhines
Monkeys evolved from prosimians.

So to say we are descended from monkeys is inaccurate.
