Genesis 1:26
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

One of the enduring myths popularized by evolutionary biologists is that there is a large amount of evidence to show that human beings evolved from apes. Of course, evolutionists are up in arms immediately – “We don’t believe humans evolved from apes!” they cry. “We believe humans and apes have a common ancestor!” But was that common ancestor human? We would suppose not. So the evolutionists do believe that the common ancestor was a non-human large primate. In any other circumstance, the word ape would satisfactorily label such a creature.

Another problem for evolutionary anthropologists – those who study human beings – is that their “evidence” keeps changing. One recent article, for example, suggested that three species of ape-men lived in the same area at the same time – homo erectus, paranthropus, and australopithecus. This is because evolutionists have changed the dates for homo erectus, making it older than they previously thought. Not content with re-writing the myths about human evolution, the report on the CNN website had to nod at another popular science icon, stating:

During the time all three species lived in the same area, they endured climate change as it shifted from warm and humid to cool and dry.

We have commented that ape-men are really completely ape or completely human. Homo erectus was completely human – not another species – while the other two species were apes. The constant redating is only evidence of an unwillingness to accept the logical biblical framework for these discoveries.

Prayer: Thank You, Father, for Your great provision for us, including assigning humanity our stewardship over the world. Amen.
