Human Origins


Out of Africa?

The so-called “Out of Africa” model of human origins assumes that Homo erectus evolved in Africa and colonized the world before being “replaced” by modern Homo sapiens. But in Central Asia, archaeologists have found evidence of human occupation that predates any evidence of humans in Africa.

Common Ancestor

Biochemist Douglas Theobald attempted to statistically test the hypothesis that all life evolved from the same common ancestor —one of Darwin’s primary assertions. The similarity across life is usually attributed to universal ancestry. Creationists know similarities make sense in light of a single Designer.

Our Human Hand

The need to punch out rivals may have driven the evolution of the human hand, according to a study just published in the Journal of Experimental Biology. While our violent nature is evident in our history, it did not drive the evolution of our anatomy. God designed our hand anatomy from the beginning.
