Who’s the best?

Are we really th dominant lifeform on this planet? …

According to the theory of evolution, ants are the most evolved creature on earth. Having only two chromosomes for the male ant and the female being haploid, i.e. having only one chromosome because she hatches from an unfertilized egg.
Humans have 46 chromosomes as do chimpanzee's.
The simplist creature of all is protozoa with over a thousand chromosomes.
.
According to the theory, life evolves by gradual reduction of genetic material through a process called natural selection. As animals evolve they lose dna and hence chromosomes.
So accordingly then, surely ants are more evolved than humans?
