The Decent of Mankind


Only God's Word explains the Brave New World of Noah and His sons - and gives the framework to sort out all these alleged finds of cavemen, etc.

There Are Two Walls Between Which Lies Everything Ever to be Found on This Planet

1. The first is Genesis 8:18 that declares the only land living, air breathing creatures that survived the Flood, and repopulated the Earth were on the ark - all humans but eight perished!

2. The second is Genesis 9:19 which states that all living creatures including the highest of God's creation - humans- have descended from Noah, his family and the creatures aboard the Ark!

All over the world pale ontological research digs are turning up more and more fragments of bones, teeth, skulls, and tools.  Once unearthed, fantastic claims of bridge species, missing links, and new examples of someone theories are trumpeted instantly by internet news providers globally.  In their wake come seasoned, science fiction soaked, illustrators that imaginatively -- and to the delight of museums and book sellers -- illustrate these fragments as thick boned, protruding fore headed apelike creatures.  Introducing the caveman; Caveman is a world largely imaginative, and the product of the spinners of evolutionary thought. 

The subject of human origins has been severely distorted for over a hundred years by the theory of evolution.  Popular displays in museums and magazines, and unfortunately even in school textbooks, have persuaded most people that man has an animal ancestry, leading back through a long line of intermediate stages to some form of ape-like creature which was also the ancestor of the modern apes.

So what is the truth?  Who or what were these creatures?  When did they live?  How do they fit in the framework of God's Word and Christ's Creation that was "good" and sinless on the 7th and final day when God rested from His creation of everything from nothing, instantaneously over six normal 24 hour days?  What are we to believe, teach our children, and defend?

May I demonstrate all this by a new and some old reports?  First the news of March, 2000 was at last the link from man to ape was found! Here was the headline:

 Micro-Primates...A Transitional Form Discovered!
