Stop monkeying around

Every time you turn on the television, whether it’s a feature film, a kid’s program or a documentary, there is often a reference to evolution in the form of “back when we were monkeys…”

So for all of you who still believe that you are the product of King Kong rather than children of the King of Kings, here is some hard data for you.

Evolutionary regression

1) Common ancestor (evolutionary adam):

This creature is believed to have been a forest dwelling creature from which both man and ape descend: No traces of any such creature have ever been found!

2) Gigantopithicus:

This creature was discovered to be nothing more than an extinct ground ape, Richard Leaky famed anthropologist and evolutionist has removed it from the chart leading to man (Time magazine Nov 7, 1977).

3) Ramapithicus:

Discovered in India in 1930, it was described as an advanced primate. It  was reconstructed from a 2″ long piece of jawbone, and all physical charactaristics were  artistically detailed and published widely. But his height, posture, length of limbs, shape of his head and amount of body hair were all derived from a two-inch piece of jawbone?

Its only reason for inclusion is that the bone appeared to be more man-like that ape-like. However, recent discoveries have shown that some living baboons have similar tooth and jaw structures. Science Digest, April 1981, states Ramapithicus is believed to be a descendant of neither man nor ape, but some other extinct creature.

4) Australopithicus:

Name means southern ape (that should tell you a lot). The brain case and skull form are distinctly ape. The only reason for its inclusion is some small stone tools were found nearby. Again famed evolutionist Richard Leaky has removed this from the lineage of man.

5) Peking Man:

In 1921, two molar teeth were found – six years later a third tooth was found as well as some skull caps and bone fragments.  French scientist Marcellin Boule examined the fragments in 1937 and concluded they were decidedly monkey-like  and belonged to creatures that were hunted by humans. In fact, human fossils have been excavated from the same site as well as evidence of a limestone processing industry!

6) Java man:

In 1891, A Dutch physician Eugene Duboise discovered Java man!  What he actually discovered was an ape like skull-cap – a year later he returned and found a human leg bone and two molar teeth 50 feet away.

Like any good doctor he connected the head bone to the leg bone and created Java man! On his death-bed, he admitted the skull-cap was from a giant gibbon and that he had also found human skulls along with the other human remains — Java man was not a mistake, it was a fraud!

7) Cromagnon man:

He was discovered in 1940 when some boys were hiking and their dog fell into a large crack in the rocks When they climbed down to rescue the pet, they found a small entrance into a large cave in which they discovered human remains. The name Cromagnon simply means “great big cave” and these remains are 100% human — the same as you or me.

Do people still live in caves today? Yes, some tribal groups in various parts of the world still live in caves today. These remains could simply have been ancient hunters who used the cave as place for shelter while hunting and died from various reasons ie: the elements or maybe even the flood of Noah trapped them in the cave and buried them in the sediments that washed in or lastly the cave may have simply been used as a burial chamber.

8) Neanderthal man:

The name is given because the bones were found in the Neander valley in Germany in 1856.

Neanderthal man is depicted as a hunched-over, hairy, club-swinging caveman. Numerous Neanderthal skeletons were discovered, however, the one used to try and prove a missing link was  found to be severely deformed by age and arthritis. Another fact not revealed by those trying so hard to find the missing link (which is still missing)  is that Neanderthal man had a much larger brain case than modern man. This supports the Creation evidence that ancient man was much smarter.

“The whole basis on which paleontologists classify fossil apes and Humans is misleading. The Time has come to admit that the system by which we name things is inadequate in dealing with things that have a time dimension.”  Evolutionist Richard Leakey, quoted in the Vancouver Sun, March 19, 1982.

The blood problem

Oh, yes, while we are at it, let’s look at monkey-to-man evolution from a different angle.

Let’s examine the chemical side by looking closely at the blood of our supposed ancestors. Humans have the following blood types: Type A, Type B, Type O and Type AB.

Many published studies over recent years have shown that chimpanzees mostly have Blood type A, almost no Blood type O, but NEVER Blood type B. The other great ape, the gorilla has Blood type B, almost no Blood type O, but never Blood type A.

In these ‘man-ape’ species — said to be the ancestors of man — there is NO Blood type AB in either. Generally speaking, man has both Blood types A and B, and Blood type AB. Blood type O is by far the most common in virtually every racial group.

Also note that even though a monkey may have blood type A, the proteins that reside with that A type cell are so different from humans, it is impossible for a type A human to receive a transfusion from a type A monkey.

I don’t know about you , but I came from a long line of humans who were created special and with a purpose. So stop monkeying around!
