Dearest hijas and hijo,
Who knew? Another evolutionary canard accepts the consolation medal for mendacity and walks off the stage (see my earlier posts on Nebraska Man Frauds in the Rise of the Apemen: Nebraska Man and Piltdown Man Frauds in the Rise of the Apemen).
A recent article over at Creation-Evolution Headlines, http://www.crev.info has this as it’s catchy title, “Neanderthal-Human Interbreeding Was Frequent.”
The article can be found here: http://www.crev.info/2021/05/neanderthal-interbreeding-frequent/
The story line was that Neanderthals were not fully human, but on the line that stretches back to the common human ancestor. Seems that story line was never true and humans and Neanderthals were having sex on a frequent basis, producing offspring, and passing on that DNA to those living today. But wait, how can a human have relations with an animal and produce viable offspring? Is that even possible? Were their offspring half ape-like and half human—some sort of chimera like those of Greek mythology? Those of you with some biological training need to explain that to me.
What we have here, mis hijas y hijo, is another plank in the secular man’s creation myth going down in flames. Staking his claim against God, the unregenerate man believes he came up out of the pond scum, and solely by undirected, purposeless and meaningless chance accidents evolved into an ape-like creature (Neanderthal), some of who then evolved into fully human beings.
But what if Neanderthals were never ape-like? What if they were fully human to begin with? Now we’re talking about humans having relations with humans, with evidence of their DNA still around in living human populations today. Makes much more logical sense, doesn’t it?
When one uses Scripture (God’s self-revelation of who He is, what He has done, and what He expects of man), the picture is a lot less muddy, isn’t it? Human beings didn’t come up out of the pond scum, evolving from sort of some primordial slime, but were created fully human right from the start. They were told to be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth (Gen. 1:28). They did just exactly that, filling the earth with other humans and having dominion (ruling) over all of that other which God had created. Tragically, they sinned—we today inheriting that sin nature and in desperate need of redemption. A redemption that only comes through bending the knee of our autonomous and rebellious mind to Christ.
Fast-forward to the year of our LORD 2021. Evidence of Neanderthal DNA found in human populations alive in this the 21st century. Wow. Will the rebellious man now fall on his knees and repent of his acceptance of this false evolutionary belief system? No, highly unlikely. There’ll be some sort of rescuing device proffered up in explanation. Discernment, however, from a critical Christian mind, will see the worldview issues at play here, understanding unregenerate man’s overwhelming and constant ability to self-deceive.
All my love,
Vaya con Dios!
