“Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.”
Has your great great-grandfather been born yet? If he hasn’t, he’s not your great great-grandfather! This might seem like a silly question. But when it comes to the claimed evolutionary fossil evidence for man’s evolution, our claimed great great-grandfather has turned up in the wrong period of history. A re-dating of Homo erectus fossil skulls discovered in 1931 and 1933 has placed these supposed “human evolutionary ancestors” squarely in human history. This dating is supported by the geological setting in which they were found. In fact, two excavation sites right next to each other together yielded both modern human and Homo erectus remains!
The most likely age for the Homo erectus remains were 27,000 years before the present. You must remember that these are years according to the evolutionary interpretation. But what it means is that Homo erectus and humans like us lived at the same time. This is so troubling to scientists who believe in evolution that they tried several tactics to avoid the problem. First, they argued that the human fossils were not in the same geological layer as the Homo erectus remains. But photographs contradict this claim. Then, they argued that the human remains must have washed into the area from higher ground. But the good condition of the human remains and related bones rules this out.
In other words, Homo erectus offers no support for human evolution, and another attempt to contradict God’s Word about our special creation falls apart!
Dear Lord, we thank You that You have not only specially created us, but also that You died to save us. Amen.
