“Look closely at your hand. You have five flexible fingers. Animals with five flexible fingers are called primates. Monkeys, apes, and humans are examples of primates….Primates most likely evolved from small, insect-eating rodentlike mammals that lived about 60 million years ago.”

“But all researchers agree on certain basic facts. We know, for example, that humans evolved from ancestors we share with other living primates such as chimpanzees and apes.”

java man pithecanthropus erectus
Java Man Pithecanthropus erectus
  • 1891: An apelike skullcap and a humanlike thighbone were found 45 feet apart – claim: 500,000 yrs. old

Rudolph Virchow (regarded as the father of modern pathology) stated at the time of discovery:

“In my opinion this creature was an animal, a giant gibbon, in fact. The thigh bone has not the slightest connection with the skull.”

java man
Java Man
  • Human fossils were also found in Java dating about the same age as Java Man
  • Leading authorities of the time rejected Dubois’s findings
  • Hackel, a prime promoter of evolution and Java Man, already had a reputation for fraud in promoting his views on evolution
  • Since 1950, anthropologists and textbooks have been calling Java man Homo erectus

piltdown man1
Piltdown Man

New York Times ran an article:

“Darwin Theory Proved True.”

  • Featured in textbooks and encyclopedias
  • In 1953 scientists studied the bones

The Truth

A fraud (600 year old bones)

nebraska man
Nebraska Man
  • 1922 fossil evidence was discovered
  • Used to support evolution in the 1925 Scopes trial
  • The claim: 1 million year old intermediate link

The Truth

An extinct pig’s tooth


What they found

What they drew




Time Magazine (Nov. 7, 1977)

“Ramapithicus is ideally structured to be an ancestor of hominids. If he isn't, we don't have anything else that is.”


The claim: 14 million year old intermediate between ape-like creatures and humans

  • In 1970 a baboon living in Ethiopia was discovered.
    • Same dental structure
    • Similar morphological features found on Ramapithecus
  • Ramapithecus dropped from human line

The truth

summary of facts
Summary of “Facts”
  • Java Man …………….Two different creatures
  • Piltdown Man ……… Hoax
  • Nebraska Man …….. Pig
  • Ramapithecus …….. Ape




Genetics (DNA)


Original Drawing of Neanderthal

  • First found near Dusseldorf, Germany in 1856
  • Constructed to look ape-like
  • Brain capacity about 200 cc larger

Initial construction discovered to be wrong

  • used jewelry
  • used musical instruments
  • did cave paintings
  • capable of speech
  • buried their dead
neanderthal burial cites
Neanderthal Burial Cites

Marvin Lubenow, “Recovery of Neanderthal mtDNA: An Evaluation,” Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal, 1998 p.89.

“Most anthropologists recognize burial as a very human, and a very religious, act. But the strongest evidence that Neandertals were fully human and of our species is that at four sites Neanderthals and modern humans were buried together.”

neanderthal anatomy
Neanderthal Anatomy

Thick brow

Stocky body build

Short extremities

neanderthal anatomy1
Neanderthal Anatomy

B. Endo, “Experimental Studies on the Mechanical Significance of the Form of the Human Facial Skeleton,”J. Fac. Univ. Tokyo, 1966.

Biochemical models have demonstrated that chewing muscles working through the teeth generates intensive concentration of compression in the nasal and forehead region…i.e. a bigger brow ridge.

Neanderthal DNA

Nicholas Comninellis, M.D., Creative Defense: Evidence Against Evolution, 2001, p. 195. (citing Marvin Lubenow, “Recovery of Neanderthal mtDNA: An Evaluation,” Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal, 1998.)

“Analysis of Neanderthal DNA failed to demonstrate any significance from DNA of modern humans.”

neanderthals were human
Neanderthals Were Human

Dave Phillips (Physical Anthropologist), “Neanderthals Are Still Human,” Impact Article #223, May, 2000

“Neanderthals were human. They buried their dead, used tools, had a complex social structure, employed language, and played musical instruments.

Neanderthal anatomy differences are extremely minor and can be for the most part explained as a result of a genetically isolated people that lived a rigorous life in a harsh, cold climate.”

conclusion about neanderthals
Conclusion About Neanderthals
  • Protruding brow ridge
  • Stocky body build and short extremities
  • Isolated population of people
  • Lived in a cold, harsh climate
  • 100% human
  • Deformities proven to be from severe arthritis and lack of Vitamin D.

Artistic conception



What do you notice about this picture?

Note contemplative gaze, human hands and use of tools.

evolutionary preconception
Evolutionary Preconception

John Gurche, artist, National Geographic, March, 1996 p. 109.

“I wanted to get a human soul into this ape-like face, to indicate something about where he was headed.”

what was found
What Was Found?
  • Lucy discovered in 1974
  • About 40% of the fossil was found
  • Claimed to be 3.5 million years old
  • Claimed bipedal (walked upright)
lucy and the australopithecines
Lucy and the Australopithecines
  • No similarity in appearance to humans
  • Long arms are identical to chimpanzees
  • Jaws are similar to chimpanzees
  • Upper leg bone is similar to chimpanzees
  • Lucy’s legs were very ape-like
  • Brain size (400-500 cc) overlaps chimpanzees
  • Hands similar to pygmy chimpanzee
  • Feet were long and curved
did lucy walk upright
Did Lucy Walk Upright

To determine if Lucy walked upright three areas of anatomy were examined

  • The rib cage
  • The pelvis
  • Leg and foot bones
rib cage



Conical shape

Circular barrel-like

Rib Cage
  • Ape ribs are conical shaped
  • Human ribs are barrel-like

Lucy’s Rib Cage

Brad Harrub (Ph.D. Anatomy and Neurobiology) and Bert Thompson (Ph.D. Microbiology), The Truth About Human Origins, 2003, p. 47.

“In Lucy’s case, her ribs are conical, like those found in apes.”


Lucy’s pelvis is “wrong” because it is very ape-like

laetoli footprints
Laetoli Footprints

Footprints discovered in 1978 in Laetoli, Tanzania. The footprints were dated at 3.5 million years old.

Who made these footprints?

Russell Tuttle, “The Pattern of Little Feet,” American Journal of Physical Anthropology, Feb 1989, p. 316.

“Indistinguishable from those of habitually barefoot Homo sapiens.”

anatomy of australopithecines
Anatomy of Australopithecines

David Catchpoole, Ph.D., “New evidence: Lucy was a knuckle-walker”, www.answersingenesis.org/docs2/4256news5-5-2000.asp

“…anatomist Dr Charles Oxnard has shown that the big toe actually sticks out as in chimpanzees.”

  • Evolutionists ignore the scientific evidence
  • Evolutionists create misleading pictures in textbooks to support evolution
  • Evolutionists practice censorship
  • The scientific evidence supports Lucy was an extinct type of chimpanzee

Acts 17:26

And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;


Genesis 11:1, 4

Now the earth had one language and one speech.

And they said, “come let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”


Genesis 11:8-9

So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of the earth, and they ceased building the city.

Therefore its name is called Babel, because the Lord confused the language of all the earth;…


Children inherit two sets of genes

  • Adam was created perfect
  • About 2,500 years later the law was given to Moses (Leviticus 18-20)
  • Abraham married his half sister (Gen 20:12)
what have we learned
  • All of God’s creation gives an abundance of evidence that He has created it, for which we praise Him.

“Know ye that the Lord He is God: It is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.” Ps. 100:3

what have we learned1
  • We have seen that the universe could not have created itself; that it is impossible for stars to form spontaneously by themselves. God created them, by His mighty power!

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork.” Ps 19:1

what have we learned2
  • From our studies concerning the fossil record, embryology, comparative anatomy, and the indescribable complexity and organization of living creatures, we see that each one testifies to the creative genius of God that passes all understanding.
“But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:

Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee; And the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.

Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this?”

Job 12:7-9

what have we learned3


True Science




Bible (Creation)

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: For Thou has created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.”

Revelation 4:11
