Neanderthals—Fully Human?

by on


This is Ken Ham, an Aussie transplant with a passion for sharing the truth of God’s Word.


Scientists used to think Neanderthals were unintelligent, subhuman brutes. But creation scientists recognize that Neanderthals had all the hallmarks of being human. They used fire, buried their dead with rituals, and used tools to hunt.

With more research, scientists realized that Neanderthals apparently also wore jewelry and make-up, and even treated broken bones. And a new discovery suggests that Neanderthal homes, often in caves, were divided into specific rooms . . . and had hot water! Few scientists today think that they were subhuman brutes.

For a time, it seemed God’s Word couldn’t be trusted. But, like always, science eventually catches up with what the Bible has said all along.
