Determining the genetic basis for differences between humans and chimps does not explain the origin of those differences. We share not a common ancestor but a common Designer.
Genetics has clearly established that Neanderthals and Denisovans were fully human. Any physical differences should be viewed as nothing more than variations that can occur within the human race descended from Adam and Eve.
Human fossils —and their stone tools—are strikingly similar everywhere they are found in the Lower and Middle Pleistocene layers. These people had large brow ridges, small chins, and receding foreheads.
Evolutionary anthropologists believe mental abilities had to evolve. Yet they note large gaps in this archaeological record across which it is difficult to discern whether mental evolution was gradual or punctuated by leaps and losses.
Can man’s ancestry be traced back to an ape-like ancestor? How much do we really have in common with primates? Have fossil ape-men been found?
Australopithecus sediba is not an ancestor of man. The evidence properly interpreted shows that such fossils are either human or ape, not an in-between species.
Was early man truly a stone-age, lumbering brute grunting his way toward primitive language? The evidence says the opposite—early man was intelligent!
The news often eagerly reports the discovery of another link in the supposed chain of hominid evolution. What do these finds really show?
The Homo floresiensis of Indonesia, three-foot-tall people affectionately called hobbits, were fully human descendants of Adam and Eve.
Humans have always been interested in our origins: where did we come from, and how did we get here? The Bible soundly answers the question of human origins.
Was the australopithecine Lucy—most famous of all the supposed human ancestors—really a precursor to modern man, or was she simply an ape?
Neanderthals are often treated as subhuman despite having all the hallmarks of full humanity. Except a few skeletal variances, they were very similar to us.
Piltdown man, and other paleoanthropological hoaxes and forgeries, call attention to the academic dishonesty that is sometimes pedaled as evolutionary evidence.
Evolutionists say that man is just an animal, descended from an ape-like ancestor. However, humans show features that clearly separate us from animals.
The date evolutionists report for Little Foot is old enough to keep it in the running for human ancestor, but there is no reason to consider the dates reliable.
Evolutionists say the oldest human fossil, the Ledi jaw (LD 350-1), shows humans had evolved from ancestors like Lucy in East Africa 2.8 million years ago.
Were Neanderthals our cousins, our ancestors, or just our fellow human travelers in the post-Babel world?
With mice and men, practice makes perfect, but a mouse with a man’s FOXp2 gene achieves perfection faster.
Indonesia’s Flores Island was probably populated not by a Lilliputian human species but just ordinary people including a person with Down syndrome.
Uner Tan syndrome does not harbor the evolutionary “how” of human bipedality.
In a new comprehensive review of humanity’s story, evolutionary anthropologists tell their tale of how hominins progressed up the evolutionary ladder.
The “mosaic” of traits in these people who left their fossilized remains in Ice Age sediment is consistent with the history found in God’s Word.
Do modern man’s diseases spring from a mismatch between today’s diet and prehistoric anatomy?
Are weak muscles the price humans paid for evolving bigger better brains?
Do the genetic roots of primate tooth enamel track humanity’s evolutionary roots?
The stars of the program were a group of reptiles that supposedly evolved into mammals, and the supporting cast consisted of baby opossums that gave their lives for the cause.
What we read in God’s Word even helps us understand what we see in God’s world—including most of the scientific principles taught in this episode.
Your Inner Fish, hosted on PBS by fish paleontologist Neil Shubin of Tiktaalik fame, blends fishy fables with embryology, genetics, and human anatomy.
Did human feet in ancient time walk upon England’s river shore?
Are empathetic bonobos our evolutionary soul-mates?
War erupts between anthropologists over the true past of primitive people.
A study comparing the teeth of modern humans, chimpanzees, and hominid fossils has found results that surprised evolutionary researchers.
Convenient evolutionary answer tying human pregnancy to bipedality becomes extinct.
Early modern human skull in Asia meets mixed response.
From the first cells to humans, the evolution of life has been a “snuggle for survival,” says Harvard professor Martin Nowak.
Famous evolutionist considers skeptics a threat to human survival.
If you’ve heard of these geoglyphs, you know they’re quite the mystery to archaeologists and most other experts. Discovered by accident from an airplane in 1927, their purpose remains a conundrum.
Scientists still debate the identity of these bones after 20 years.
Big deal over small, arguably irrelevant changes
Experts in the ever-changing topic of human evolution thought they had most of it figured out—when our ancestors left Africa, the major evolutionary steps since then, etc. But a human jawbone discovered in China just doesn’t fit.
Are Tibetans the most evolved humans? Just what does that mean?
Creationists argue that similarities between humans and apes aren’t due to evolution. What about similarities between humans and plants?
PBS TV in America is proclaiming that due to “an explosion of recent discoveries [that shed] light on . . . our hominid relatives,” it’s time to broadcast another documentary on human evolution.
The flip-flops of the past weren’t footwear, but rather feet. That’s 99 percent evolutionary spin and 1 percent imagination.
That’s one small step for a man, one giant falling-flat-on-its-face step for mankind’s evolution.
We at Answers in Genesis think evolutionary theory is just about the greatest thing since sliced bread. And so is sarcasm! Well, at least it gives us a little license to “pour it on” a bit, at least in this piece.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
