Tools of Evolution

on July 1, 2007
Featured in Answers Magazine

Wooden tools used by African chimpanzees have some evolutionists excited. Researchers have observed chimps in Senegal making spears out of tree branches and then using them.

Scientists claim that “the finding could have implications for human evolution.”1 But this is not the first time such activity has been seen in animals. Crows have the same toolmaking ability as chimps, yet evolutionists would not regard their behavior as evidence of common ancestry between crows and people.

Both chimps and crows are relatively smart creatures. Their Creator made them with the intelligence to make and use simple tools. But this does not put them in the same category as humans, made in the image of God. Humans were uniquely created by God, from the dust of the ground, without any physical connection to apes and other animals.
