If we ask ourselves the question: “Who
Am I?” An Evolutionist must
answer that they are a mutation, a happenstance, a mistake, a random descendant from primordial slime, who’s great, great granddaddy was an ape. (Can you really believe someone
who claims that this is there heritage?)
However, a Bible-Believing person should answer that they are a specially
created child of the Almighty God, created in God’s image, for God’s special
purpose. Just imagine the impact these two different viewpoints would
have on a person’s life.
The Bottom Line: Ape-Men Never Existed. All
archeological and fossil finds claiming to link man to apes are either 100% ape or 100% man. There is no evidence to the contrary. There is no evidence
to support that humankind evolved from apes. The ape-men
names we’ve all heard about have been shown scientifically
to be either pure man or pure ape.
If I said to an Evolutionist, “The only people
who may have descended from an ape, are people stupid enough to believe in Evolution.” – Would they get upset with me? You bet. Because deep down, we all know we
didn’t descend from an ape. Our inner “truth detectors” tell us that
we are something special.
Here’s just a few of the attempts to try to show that mankind evolved from apes. These have been
featured in science books over the last decades, but they are not based on science, but on man’s attempt to prove a
faulty theory: the theory of Evolution.
Man – Artwork of “Nebraska
Man” shows Mr. and Mrs. Nebraska Man, smaller than us today with stooped
shoulders, a muscular build, and with hair all over the body. Their
features are illustrated as half ape/half man. They
are often shown carrying a club. Their drawings, museum
displays and life story was obtained from the finding of one tooth. The tooth has now been determined to be a pig’s tooth. Nebraska Man was a pig.
Piltdown Man – Piltdown Man was declared the missing link even before he was studied. Then, some 30 yrs later he
was found to be an outright fraud. A human skull was sanded and an ape jaw bone was fitted to it; both were treated with acid to make them look old, and then they were “rediscovered.” Piltdown
Man was a hoax.
Age” Neandertal Man – The
first “Neandertal Man” was found in a cave in Neander Valley, Germany in 1856. He had a curved spine. Now 300 + have been found and most of the backs are straight. The original specimen had arthritis and a
vitamin D deficiency. Neandertal Man is now classified as Homo sapiens (that’s us), not as a “missing
link.” Also, in archeological digs, we have now found aerodynamic spears,
jewelry, and sophisticated ornaments used by Neandertal Man. They had a religion, and buried their dead with flowers. We have found stone axe blades made
of carborundum, the second hardest mineral on earth. The blades had been polished by diamonds, the hardest mineral on earth.
If we gave Neandertal Man a haircut and clothes, we couldn't tell them apart from ourselves. Unlike the "cavemen"
guys we see on the TV commercials, they'd look exactly like us.
Astralopithecus (Lucy) – This is the most recent and the most complete ancient “human”
skeleton ever found. However, the skeleton is missing most of the skull, shoulders, hands, feet, and knees, which are the key identifiers that
separate man compared from ape. The pelvic bone is another good indicator, but Lucy has an ape pelvic bone. After further
study, Lucy has now been shown to be a true ape, an extinct type of orangutan, however, our young people today are erroneously being taught that Lucy is proof of man’s evolution from
Australian Aborigines – For years Australian Aborigines were thought to be living missing links that show our ape ancestry. Thousands
of Aborigines were killed for scientific study before scientists realized they were human. It was their more blockish features
and primitive culture that made evolutionists believe they may be the missing link. It was also belief in a grossly misguided
theory: the theory of evolution.
To date, not one fossil link showing that man descended from apes have been found. They won’t be found
because each of us were created by the same Almighty God. Regardless of our color or other features, we were all created in
the image of an Almighty God.
Why is this important? Because we need to understand that the Bible is the
Holy Word of God. It's perfect and true throughout its entire content. This is important because it tells us about
God's Special Promise to Each of Us, and how we can spend eternity with God in heaven.
