New Problems for Origin of Life Theories
Psalm 36:9

Which Came First . . . or Did They?

Genesis 1:21
"So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female created He them."

We have all seen those illustrations supposedly showing the stages of human evolution from some ape-like creature. Progressing from the earliest ape-like creature to modern man, you see Homo habilis and, closer to modern man, Homo erectus.

Homo habilis reconstructionAlthough this illustration continues to adorn textbooks, paleontologists have known for some time that it is an inaccurate depiction of even their own theory. While digging in Africa in 2000, a paleontological team headed by the Leakeys found bones of both erectus and habilis. Not only were they within walking distance of each other, they were in the same level and, thus. have the same dates. The evolutionary dating of the jaw from the habilis as well as the erectus skull were dated at 1.44 million evolutionary years. This was long after habilis was supposed to have evolved into erectus.

Evolutionists also once thought that modern humans evolved from Neandertals. But then they found clear evidence that modern humans existed at the same time as Neandertals. Commenting on the finding, one evolutionary scientist cautioned that this finding should not be considered a weakness in evolutionary theory. However, real science is all about evidence. And there is no evidence that modern humans evolved from some early ape-like creature.

While evolution views man as just another animal, God made us in His image to be His children.

Prayer: 
Father, I thank You that You have made me and redeemed me through the suffering and death of Your Son. Amen.
