Did God Create the Human Race, or Did We Evolve?
By Dr. Max D. Younce
Did God create the human race, or did we evolve over “millions” of years, as claimed by some scientists?
(Since we have had many questions concerning this, the next few articles will deal with this subject.) God says in Genesis 1:27,
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Evolutionists deny this and one of the “missing links” they offer in the place of God’s declaration is the “Nebraska Man.”
The Nebraska Man. This is probably one of the most famous as scientists tell us he is one of the oldest. Our text books have glamorized him with the name of Hespero Pithecus Man. This name is derived from the Greek word "hesperos" meaning "evening" and "pithecus" meaning “ape”, or the Western Ape as he is often called. Harold Cook being the founder.
This was the so-called "missing link" presented by Professor H. H. Newman of the University of Chicago at the famous Scopes trial in Dayton, Tennessee, years ago. William Jennings Bryan, in defense of the Bible, said "he thought the evidence presented was too scanty to base upon it such far reaching conclusions." Many of the so-called experts only laughed and scoffed at his conclusions. Most of our colleges and institutions of higher learning, high schools and grade schools are teaching evolution as a fact, not a theory. This man is still carried in our text books all over the country as the "missing link." Upon this man was built a whole prehistoric race in America.
Let us examine the evidence presented. The evidence consisted in its entirety of one, single, solitary TOOTH! When we see this man, who is made to look like but a step from ape to man, remember, it is based upon only one tooth. This is unbelievable! The design of the face, amount of hair, bone structure, height, size of head, arms, feet and facial expression are all constructed in plaster of paris according to the imagination of the artist. Since the infamous Scopes trial, when many of the "experts" laughed at Mr. Bryan, the entire skeleton belonging to the tooth has been found. It belonged to a peccary, a species of pig that is now extinct on our continent.
Who is the laugh really on? Do you know your children are being taught this nonsense in our public schools throughout the nation. The text books still show the pictures of part-ape and part-man, which is an absolute lie. Remember, when your child is taught this, he is taught to call God a liar. He cannot believe in evolution and the Bible too. The one tooth turned out to be that of a wild pig. Just one of the many hoaxes of those trying to establish a false claim. A long, long way from being the ape-man a million years old.
It is always safe to believe God. Just as He stated “He created,” therefore, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” (I Corinthians 1:19). “Prudent” is the Greek word ‘sunetos” and means “a mental putting together”, i.e. acquired human philosophy.
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” (Acts 16:31).
