Was Lucy a Missing Link?


Part 1



This is Ken Ham, author , speaker and blogger on science and the Bible’s reliability.


According to evolutionists, humans evolved from ape-like creatures. So evolutionists are always looking for “missing links” to show this supposed transition from ape-like to more human-like. One of the most famous examples is known as Lucy. But what was Lucy?

Well, Lucy—and other creatures like her—had curved toes and fingers like apes do. They also had ape wrists and shoulders. So what were they? Well, apes!

Lucy was just an extinct variety of ape. The only reason evolutionists see her as a missing link is because of their worldview. They need ape-like creatures because that’s what evolution requires. But according to God’s Word, apes were apes and humans were created as humans.
