Neanderthals: Evidence for Evolution or Just Human?
Genesis Apologetics Ministry • 01-Oct-2020
Natural History Museums everywhere display line-ups of ape-to-human icons that supposedly show how humans evolved from ape-like creatures millions of years ago. The last step in this line up are Neanderthals, holding the “40,000 to 400,000 years ago” time slot. Just decades ago, Neanderthals were regarded in museums and textbooks as gorilla-like cavemen. This is because their fossils were viewed through an evolutionary lens, being framed as some type of “last step” between ape-like creatures and humans. But today we’ve learned that Neanderthals fit into history exactly as the Bible describes: post Flood humans who dispersed from the Tower of Babel and lived during the Ice Age.
