Evolutionary Heirarchy?

Everyone here who has questioned me regarding the hierarchy does not seem to have noticed the scale in basic text books on biology where man is listed on the top.
I haven't noticed that "scale" at all. Could you give us a reference? Something from a "basic textbook on biology" where there is a "heirarchy" with man at the top?
My understanding is that we are at the end of a branch - and there is no way to predict where that branch will go next.
What can we predict? Suppose we find a fork in the bush that separates into mammals and non-mammals. We can predict that man will be a twig somewhere down the mammal branch, cows will be another twig somewhere on that branch, and so on.
ID is being asked to predict something similar - in species that already exist, not in species that might exist sometime in the future. ID is being asked to "design" a bush of its own.
