Humans with Tails?

1 Peter 3:15
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”

Creation Moments has aired a number of programs about theistic evolution. We have also written a number of articles, which you will find at our website, about this false and dangerous belief. We interact with theistic evolutionists almost every day and have found them to be almost identical to atheists in their exceedingly low view of the Bible.

Dr. Giberson showing the tailed baby in his presentationNot long ago, a theistic evolutionist revealed once again how far they will go to defend evolution. During a debate with Discovery Institute’s Dr. Stephen Meyer, theistic evolutionist Dr. Karl Giberson showed a photo of a human infant with a monkey-like tail. He did this to drive home his point that humans share a common descent from a tailed ancestor.

The only thing Dr. Giberson failed to mention was that he had found the photo at the website Cracked.com, an online humor website inspired by Mad magazine. When the source of the photo was revealed several days later, Dr. Giberson apologized, promising to never use the picture again. But like many “apologies” from evolutionists, this one fell a little flat. He protested: “No point was implied by the image beyond what is well established by other legitimate images. At no point did I imply that the image I showed was evidence.”

Christians should never even think of being deceptive when sharing the truth of biblical creation. Yes, we may make a mistake. But when we do, a sincere apology might make all the difference in an unbeliever’s life.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You desire that we be people of integrity and honesty. Lord, remove my pride so that I will admit my mistakes and correct them. Amen.
