Did God Create the Human Race, or Did We Evolve? (Part 4)
By Dr. Max D. Younce
Which is true? God’s statement that He created all mankind; or, the atheist’s with all his theories?
The Lord states in the Bible, “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in the earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.” (Colossians 1:16).
Neanderthal Man. And now we go to Düsseldorf, where the Dussel River runs through a beautiful little gorge called the Neanderthal Gorge. On one side is a limestone cliff. In that cliff a few bones were found and controversy raged again. Scientists hotly disputed the significance of the discovery of the bones as to their age, and whether they were human or animal or mere abnormalities.
Actually, the first Neanderthal Skull was found in a quarry in Gibraltar but was completely neglected for sixteen years. Why? Because the evolutionists hoped to find a living example of the missing link somewhere in the unexplored areas of the world. If evolution were true, we should find mankind in all stages of change everywhere about us, but we do not.
The controversy concerning Neanderthal found in 1856 was resolved by most anthropologists deciding that Neanderthal was "bestial and gorilloid.” That he walked with a slouch, unable to straighten his knees, with his head thrust forward.
In 1956, a symposium was held in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the Neanderthals. William S. Straus, Jr. (Anthropologist of Johns-Hopkins University) and A.J.E. Cave (Department of Anatomy at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London) were permitted to examine the remains. Straus and Cave found the skeleton very fragmentary. They also pronounced the skeleton to be in abnormal health condition and stated it could not be used to provide a picture of a healthy, normal Neanderthalian. "...if he could be reincarnated and placed in a New York subway, provided he were bathed, shaved and dressed in modern clothing, it is doubtful whether he would attract any more attention than some of its other citizens," they said.
One thing that is not a hoax; but, the truth, is found in John 5:24.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
