A Monkey, a Bird and a Story

Romans 1:18-19
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them."

Evolutionists say that human beings evolved from an ape like creature. And how do they claim to know this? Because they find various kinds of apes in the fossil record. As one would expect, some of these apes are a little – and I stress, a little – more like us than others. They are all more like apes than like us. But evolutionists will tell us that those apes that are a little more like humans are evidence for evolution. Is this a logical way to think?

A Monkey, Bird and StorySome other cultures believe that human beings came from birds. Let's say that a monkey and a bird, both sitting in a tree, were fossilized along with the tree. If a paleontologist from a western culture dug up the fossilized tree, monkey and bird and decided they were the right age, he would conclude that the monkey could have something to do with human evolution. He would reject the bird, concluding that it offered no proof at all for human evolution.

But what if the same fossilized tree, monkey and bird were discovered by someone who thought that humans came from birds? He would reject the monkey as proof of human evolution, possibly finding that the bird fit his theory very nicely. Notice that each one found the so called "evidence" he was looking for. But what did they both actually find? What they really found were a fossilized tree, fossilized bird and fossilized monkey. That's all. The rest was a story each made up to fit what he already believed before his discovery.

While science has made up lots of stories, it has never actually found anything that contradicts the Bible!

Father, man makes up stories so that he can claim that Your Word is nothing more than another made-up story. Help me to learn Your Word so well that I can easily see through all the stories that man makes up. Amen.
