Quantcast

Did humans get here by creation or by evolution?

The New American Standard Bible (Genesis 1:26-31) briefly describes the making of man:


Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according
to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the
birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His
own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He
created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, “ Be fruitful and
multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of
the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that
moves on the earth.” Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every
plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every
tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to
every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing
that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant
for food”; and it was so. God saw all that He had made, and behold, it
was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth
day.


This passage says four important things:


  1. Human beings look like God. They are the closest things on
    God’s earth that looks like Him. So all attempts to make things on earth
    to look like God are plain foolishness. When the idol makers distort
    what man looks like (Chinese “gods” with tall brain pans; Canaanite
    “goddesses” with many breasts; etc.), they act even more foolishly.
  2. Human beings are ruling stewards of the earth. Man is not lower than nature. He is a part of nature, and higher than the wild.
  3. God told human beings to multiply. So “population control” breaks Divine orders.
  4. The first food for animals and man, before the Fall, were fruits and vegetables. This would not hold forever; under the Noahide laws, God lets man eat flesh as well. But at least one dietary theorist cites Genesis 1:29 to say that the proper diet for man is a vegan diet, or at least a fructo-vegetarian one.

Then this chapter says another, all-important thing: God has finished his creative work. The Hebrew phrase, that most translators render as “very good,” is mo’ed tov. This means more than “good.” It means absolutely excellent, with no room to improve it. Creation Day 6 closes Creation Week, and leads to God’s day of rest.


The evolutionary view
Man, the greatest achievement of Creation Day 6

Evolutionists, of course, do not recognize Creation Day 6 or any
Creation Day. They insist that life shapes and re-shapes itself
constantly. And it has done this for at least 3.8 billion years.


The real evidence poses two problems. One is trying to tell exactly
how man “evolved,” and from what. No one seriously says that man came
from monkeys. Instead, anthropologists tell us that man came from chimpanzees.
The reason: of all the apes, or simians (all names for “animals that
look like man”), chimpanzees are closest to man, in how they look, and
in their chromosomes and genes.


But where are the “evolving” chimpanzee fossils? Where is the link between chimpanzee and man? The link is—you guessed it—missing.


Walter T. Brown has assembled
many other contradictions, misunderstandings, and outright frauds that
make mockeries of anthropology. Piltdown Man is the obvious fraud.
Peking Man (Homo erectus) turns out to be an ape that men ate. Java Man and Ramapithecus were also apes. Nebraska Man was lower than that: a pig!


Another finding embarrasses evolutionary theory further. Human fossils have turned up in “deep time.” No modern person buried these fossils. No one disturbed those rocks after they fell into place. These are Flood casualties. They therefore give the lie to another evolutionary canard:


If the Global Flood killed every man and woman alive but eight, where are the bodies?


The fact of the matter is: scientists have found them. And they don’t want to talk about it.


Creation Day 6 vindicated: Neanderthal Man

In sharp contrast, Neanderthal Man turns out to be all man, and neither ape nor link, missing or otherwise. Dr. Jack Cuozzo, in 1998, published the first work (Buried Alive: The Startling Story of Neanderthal Man).
Dr. Cuozzo trained as an orthodontist, one who specializes in
straightening people’s teeth. So he did the obvious thing that no
anthropologist had done before. Beginning in 1979, he took x-rays of
Neanderthal skulls, the first in history. He applied to those films the
same insights he had developed after looking at thousands of x-rays of
his human patients. He concluded, and published, that Neanderthal Man
was a true man. Furthermore, Neanderthal Man matured very slowly, much more slowly than does modern man. Cuozzo concluded that Neanderthal Man’s dentition
locked in place after many decades, not the two for humans, and that
Neanderthal Man lived for hundreds of years. Genesis chapter 5 hints at
the same thing. Therefore, Neanderthal Man is a subset of pre-Flood man. (See also Cuozzo J, “Early Orthodontic Intervention: A View from Prehistory,” The Journal of the New Jersey Dental Association, Vol. 58, No. 4, Autumn 1987, pp. 33–40. Note that Dr. Cuozzo is now a Creation Science Hall of Fame inductee.)

    Ultimately creation, but then evolution. We were created by a divine power, but Adam and Eve were most likely far more animalistic than modern humans.

    I know that seems to make sense. But abiogenesis isn't the only thing wrong with the Grand Evolutionary Paradigm. To transform from human-like (for that is what "ape" and "simian" really mean) to truly human would take far longer than the earth could have remained in existence.

    Besides, the Nazis once tried to blend the species of man and ape. And failed gruesomely.

    You're a brainwashed idiot if you think the world was created in 6 days, and I am not ashamed to say so. I am appalled by the fact that 157 others believe such an absurd claim. Christian fundamentalism is a form of mental retardation.

    Besides, we all know The Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. Have you been touched by His Noodly Appendage?

    Evolution is a fact, and if you believe in a god it brings more glory to your god's creative power then by just saying it came about by some sort of magic.

    I'm a Christian but you can't deny the changes that have developed in animals and humans in even my lifetime (I'm under twenty). How do you explain our resembelence to monkeys? You can't deny all the proof just by shutting your eyes and saying 'no! God made it so!' the proof is still there even if you don't want to see it.

    Oh! You mean like the aliens whom Francis Crick suspected of having built a brace of missiles, each laden with bacteria and blue-green algae, and fired thos missiles in all directions? According to Crick and Orgel's 1973 piece of science fiction posing as a scientific treatise, one such missile crashed on earth, and *we* are its by-product!

    You have never stated where "it" all came from and who/what set it in motion. Who/what created/started/set in motion, all of the processes that you have described?

    All that can be seen and observed came from somewhere? How would you even know if "it" has always existed? Did "it" tell you this?

    Your trying to get to the point that evolution does not say where life came from? that is correct, it doesn't state the origin of life. Evolution merely describes, using evidence and observation, that after life formed species adapted to their surrounding environment through natural selection and genetic mutation.

    If you want to know how life form then the best answer you will get is "i don't know". this is simply because people don't know but there are interesting hypothese out there.
