Baby Ape Skull or Human Ancestor?

This is Ken Ham, inviting you to visit the full-size Noah’s Ark in Northern Kentucky.


Newspapers buzzed earlier this year with headlines like “Discovery of 13-Million-Year-Old Ape Skull Shows What Human Ancestors May Have Looked Like.” What the researchers found was a well-preserved, nearly complete skull of a baby ape. They even admitted the skull belonged to a creature that was fully ape! So why all the hype?

Well, due to evolutionary ideas about the past and humanity, the age assigned to the fossil placed it somewhere deep in our ancestry. But nothing about the skull pointed to a shared ancestry with humans!

In a biblical view, this skull represents the remains of a variety of ape. And it was buried in a catastrophe—after Noah’s Flood. That is all!
