“And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.”
Evolutionists tell us that we used to walk on all fours, just like the apes from which we evolved. While this is fine for the Planet of the Apes science-fiction films, creationists are adamant that such a theory should not appear in school textbooks.
Family physician and author Dr. Robert Peprah-Gyamfi would agree. In his book Seeing God Through the Human Body, he recalls how he was taught in school that humans once walked on all fours. Even before he became a Christian, he didn’t believe it for one second. But now, as a Bible-believing creationist, he regards that notion as absolutely ridiculous.
In the book’s chapter on the human skeleton, he points out that God “built the human skeletal system as a kind of scaffold that would not only support and protect delicate organs of the body, but also enable us to move from place to place.”
He went on to write that evolution is “a preposterous theory that stems from nothing other than unbelief propagated by people who cannot or are not prepared to believe there is a powerful force in the universe, God Almighty, capable of doing anything.” He sums it all up with these words: “The whole world may take me for a naïve, crazy person running away from the bare facts. As far as I’m concerned, however, the notion that we once walked on all fours is absolute rubbish.”
Don’t worry, doctor. There are millions of people who believe exactly as you do!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden, each of them walked out on two feet, not four! Amen.
