The First Earth Age, Archaeological Evidence For Creation and Against Evolution
 

        Below we see a 'footprint in time.'  The below footprint is impressed into solid stone in New Mexico U.S.A.  The rock that it is impressed into is conservatively dated at 10 million years old, the University of New Mexico dates the rock formation in which the footprint is indented into back to 50 million years ago.  But we shall use the conservative dating given by Pastor (A fine Christian Minister) of another Ministry on TV to whom we give credit and thanks for bringing this remarkable discovery to the attention of Bible Believing Christians.  

        On that note, another Ministry on TV has a documentary VHS tape about the footprint filmed on-site in N.M. which has been instrumental in bringing this current study to you.  You may purchase the VHS Tape directly from the Shepherds Chapel by calling (501) 787-6026, the tape is item #100.82 DOC-32, A Step In Time, the price is $25.00 (not counting postage).  

        Now we must address the caption in the picture at left, for surely it must be confounding many Christians who have not been taught that there were to be three earth ages in the plan of God.  The age that we live in now is one, the eternity (Heaven) which is another age, but there was an age even before our present one.  That age is called the first earth age.   There are three ages written of in the Bible (2 Pet 3:5-13 (covered below)& Jer 4:23-27).  Understanding this would clear up many confusing passages in the Bible that speak of the three earth ages, not three different earths or worlds, but three different world ages.  Example:  "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear" (Heb 11:3). See also (Heb 1:2).  A useful study on the matter is at: WHEN WAS THE BEGINNING.   

        We shall address that more in-depth below, but for now let us lay out some foundational facts:  The nature of the bodies that we are to be in during the three various earth ages are not all the same as they are now: "It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body" (1 Cor 15:44).  In this age (the second of three) we are in flesh bodies (with our spiritual bodies inside), prone to sickness and death.  In the third age (Heaven) we shall be in eternal spiritual bodies, not subject to human fragility and death.  And in the first earth age we were also in those spiritual bodies (angelic in form).  This is not to be confused with reincarnation!  Reincarnation is a lie from satan designed to lead one to believe that he/she is not fully accountable for the actions of their lives.  This also shall receive special treatment below, but that we can present a brief overview/ introduction here, allow us to present the facts in summary now and document them from the Bible later on in this study.  

        This current earth age that we live in is approximately 14,000 years old.  But there was an age before this one that spans back billions of years.  But it is still the same earth.  The first earth age is when the dinosaurs lived and we were in spiritual incorruptible bodies.  These spiritual bodies have the same shape and mass of our flesh bodies but they do not age, nor become sick, nor die - unless God takes them as He did at the end of that first earth age when satan revolted and led one-third of God's children (us) against Him.  When God took these spiritual bodies from off the earth and destroyed that first earth age there were no flesh bodies to remain.  However, there were animal bodies, i.e., Dinosaurs....  But the spiritual bodies of 'us' were not left to rot and corrupt in the grave.  As stated, the spiritual body can only be destroyed in the Lake of Fire (Rev 20:14) (Hell).  that is why while archaeologists do find tools and remains of settlements, they do not find any human remains beyond, say, 14,000 years ago.  

        What they do find is Dinosaur remains, remains of sea shell creatures, rodents, extinct species including extinct species of Ape-type creatures that the modern scientists assume are our evolutionary ancestors.  They are not. 

Let's look at "The Beginning" according to the Word of God:

Gen 1:1-2
1 In the beginning
*1God created the heaven and the earth.*2

Explanation from above verse: *1 In the beginning = It states: "In the beginning," but it doesn't say when that was.  We know from archeology that this earth is billions of years old.  *2 earth. We notice that there is a period at the end of this sentence.  That means that this thought is complete and the next sentence is a new thought.  In reality there is unknown eons of time between this verse and the next.  This is what is called "time gap" in scriptures, and it is recognized to occur in at least twenty-five places in the Bible.  Below, we will supply four of those places for your observation, two from the Old Testament and two from the New Testament, one of them having two time gaps in consecutive verses (Rev):

  • Psalm 22, between verses 21 - 22 (Crucifixion day of Christ / Final generation).
  • Zechariah chapter 9, between verses 9 - 10 (First Advent / Second Advent).
  • Matthew chapter 10, in the middle of verse 23 ( Christ's time / Final generation).
  • Revelation Chapter 12, in the middle of verse 4 (First earth age / Christ's time)&
  • Revelation Chapter 12, between verses 5-6 (Christ's time / Final generation)
  • (See: The Companion Bible)

2a. And the earth was*1 without form*2, and void*3; and darkness*4 was upon the face of the deep*5 .*6 And the Spirit of God*7 moved upon the face of the waters. (Verse 2 Continues further on below)

Explanation from above verse: *1 was = Hebrew word # 1961 hayah (haw-yaw); a primitive root; to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass, to happen, to fall out. This word 'Was' is the English translation of a Hebrew word that means "Became". In other words, the earth was not created without form and void, but that it became that way at some point in time after it was created. *2 without form = Hebrew word # 8414 tohuw; was translated from the Hebrew word that means: to lie waste, a desolation. You cannot lie waste or desolate something unless it was once in good condition, and then at some later time it was destroyed. *3 void = Hebrew word # 922 bohuw; This word 'Void' is translated from a Hebrew word that means: an indistinguishable ruin. You cannot have a ruin unless there was at first something to ruin. *4 darkness = Hebrew word # 2822 choshek; As it is used here, darkness means: to become dark, to be darkened. You cannot darken something that was not lit in the first place. *5 deep = Hebrew word # 8415 tehowm; An abyss (as a surging mass of water) especially the deep, uproar, or agitate greatly, put in commotion; to disturb, drive, destroy. **This corresponds with the description of the destruction of the first earth age by water in (2 Peter 3:5+6) which is not speaking of the flood of Naoh's time, Noah's Flood was in our present second earth age). *6  "." = There is a period at the end of this sentence. the following sentence marks the beginning of the rejuvenation of this earth age (The one we now live in), remember the time-gap in this Scripture. *7 Spirit of God = The Holy Spirit.

        Below, we will see what Almighty God says about the way he created the world, and we see that He did not create it void and without form, but that it became like that at a later time:

Isa 45:18
18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain*1, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. (KJV)

Explanation from above verse: *1 vain = There is something remarkable here that is lost to the English reader of the Bible.  In the Hebrew Manuscripts that the above verse was translated out of, the word translated into the English: 'vain' is translated from the identical Hebrew word that we saw in (Gen 1:1) tohuw, which was translated: 'without form', it is the very same word in the manuscripts!   Let's refresh our recollection of the Hebrew word tohuw which is the actual Hebrew word used in both (Gen 1:1 & Isa 45:18), and it tells in what condition that God did NOT create the world in.

From the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance:
vain
and without form: Hebrew word # 8414 tohuw (to'-hoo); from an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), i.e. desert; figuratively, a worthless thing; adverbially, in vain: formlessness, confusion, unreality.

        So that should explain what it is really saying when we read in (Gen 1:2a): "And the earth was [became] without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep."

        It is important to point out that the separation of Chapters, Verses, Sentences, and even the spaces between words is the work of the modern Translators.  In the original autographs (first Manuscripts), the whole page is written like one long word.  The Translators only had their interpretation of the meaning of the scripture to use as a guide, when separating Chapters, Verses, Lines, and the words.  (See: The Companion Bible)

        This happens in our verse 2 above, in the middle of verse two (2a/2b), after the period, we have the sentence that marks the beginning of the rejuvenation of the world into our present earth age (the second of three): "And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." This rejuvenation continues on in the verse that follow as God creates everything as we know it in our world.

        So therefore, with the truest meanings of the key defined words in the above scripture explained, we can thus take the first verse and the first half of the second verse, up to the period, and present it as such:

  1. "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." 
  2. "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. (Notice the period)

        And now we will fully translate it so that it explains not only the Hebrew words in the English language, but also the Hebrew thought into the English meaning. Therefore, it will be better understood if it were read as:

Our paraphrase:
"
In the beginning of time, when that was isn't stated, God created everything in the Heavens and on the earth.  Then some unknown length of time later, something catastrophic occurred that made God's Creation come to utter destruction, it became a wasted place.  This destruction manifested itself among other things as a total flood.  So complete was this destructive event that not only did the earth become an indistinguishable ruin, but even the sun stopped shining its light upon it, and all the earth was cast into utter darkness."

        Then the second sentence of verse 2 (2b) marks the start of the rejuvenation of the earth and the commencement of God's Creation on the earth as we know it now in this present second earth age which we now live in:

Gen 1:2b (Cont.) - 5

(Verse 2b Cont.) And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (3) And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (4) And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. (5) And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day  (KJV)

        It is not written how much time transpired between the destruction of the first earth age and the rejuvenation of the earth for the second earth age.  God was very angry, we learn why fully in the :  WHEN WAS THE BEGINNING.  And this flooding of the waters should not be confused with Noah's flood.  As we will learn further on in this study, this particular destruction and subsequent overflowing of the waters was complete and total, and nothing or no-one survived it!  In the flood of Noah, we know that Noah, his family, and at least two of every Flesh survived.

        The first earth age was inhabited by us, by our souls in a different form, there were no flesh bodies then. In that first earth age we all had spiritual bodies, in this earth age we have flesh bodies because we were created and formed from the dust of the earth.  This is not reincarnation!  Each soul can pass through each earth age only one time.  For as it is written of our age: "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Heb 9:27), no one is 'reincarnating' back in the flesh for second chances, there are no second chances.

        When God destroyed that first earth age; the souls, the spiritual bodies, returned to the Father (God), just as we do when we die in this earth age.  But spiritual bodies leave no organic remains.  When we die today, only our organic remains (flesh and bone) remain to be buried.  Our soul, our spiritual being or body so to speak, returns instantly to the Father that gave it: "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it" (Eccl 12:7)

        In this present second earth age we have two bodies, one within the other, and they can only be separated by death: "It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body" (1 Cor 15:44).  But in the first earth age we only had the spiritual bodies.  This isn't complicated to understand (although the corrupted end-time churches seem void of the knowledge) but you know that when someone dies today we bury their body, but their soul goes back to God that gave it.  " Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it" (Eccl 12:7).  It is this soul that will be judged either to Heaven or "Hell".   But the deceased flesh that we bury simply rots back to the dirt and minerals that they are formed of, never to be used again.

        Your spirit (your intellect) and your soul (your eternal self, the same 'you' in all three earth ages) will either live forever or will be consumed in the lake of fire (Hell).  Just as you will never find or see any physical remains of someone's soul, or spiritual body; neither will you find physical remains of those spiritual bodies that inhabited the earth in the first earth age, God took them all back, and there was no flesh to remain, for they were not flesh.  

        In the first earth age, man (us) was in a spiritual body, but the animals were in flesh bodies which is why we find animal remains dated back to millions of years old, but no human remains older that 14,000 years old (approx).  In this our present second earth age, man (us) are also in flesh bodies  as the animals but we are different from them in that we also have our spiritual bodies, or souls if you would, inside giving identity, intellect, and life to the flesh 'tabernacle'.  These flesh bodies are carnal and weak to the pleasures and desires of the world.  God regretted that He had made 'man' flesh in this second earth age because our spiritual selves succumbed to the carnal desires, lusts, and temptations of the flesh body:

Gen 6:3
3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.  (KJV)

Gen 6:5-6
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.  (KJV)

        And while you will not find any human remains older than , say, 14,000 years old, you will however find the remains of their existence; the markings, tools, and the residue of their settlements.  But the spiritual bodies went back to the Father, and are now in the process of going through this second earth age, in flesh bodies.  There is a reason for this (explained fully in the:  WHEN WAS THE BEGINNING study).  Every soul goes through each earth age only one time, but it is the same one soul, the same one you!  Use this as an analogy:  In this present flesh second earth age, at one time we were all infants, then children, and eventually adults, but it was always us, the same one person;  Now imagine this on the grander scale of the eternal plan of God for His children.

        Let us address a major stumbling block to the full understanding of this.  many cannot comprehend how spiritual bodies can do things that flesh bodies can do.  Well, for one, you must remember that our flesh body is in the image of our spiritual body.  In other words, the spiritual body looks like the flesh body but it is not made of flesh.  We know from [Gen chapter 6) that the fallen angels ("sons of God' (Gen 6:2)) were spiritual bodied angels, yet they were able to impregnate flesh women ("daughters of men" (Gen 6:2)).  In that narrative (of Gen 6:2) you find the two natures of God's created peoples, one is called "sons of God" (spirit) and the other was called "daughters of men" (flesh); The angels are in spiritual bodies from God, the people now are in flesh bodies of mankind by reproduction, but they also have their spiritual body within them invisible in our second earth age.   I understand that this is a deep topic for those who have only been taught the 'milk' of God's Word and not the 'meat' of it, but stick around at it will all make sense.

        Also, when Israel was wandering in the wilderness for 40 years they ate Manna from Heaven.  Manna is Angel food, yes angels eat, but not as we understand eating, perhaps a better way to put it is that they 'partake':

Ps 78:24-25
24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.  (KJV)

        When we are in Heaven (the third earth age) we will be in our spiritual bodies (no flesh men) as it was in the first earth age, but we shall still 'Partake' of the Tree of Life:

Rev 22:1-2
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.  (KJV)

        You should remember that "Tree Of Life," for it was in the Garden of Eden, it was Jesus Christ before His time.  And the other 'tree,' the "Tree of the knowledge of good and evil"  was satan, he will not be in the third earth age (Heaven) for he is already now condemned to perish in the Lake of Fire (Ezek 28:18-19, Rev 20:10):

Gen 2:9
9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  (KJV)
  

        OK, now that we can see that there was an earth age before this one, chronologically transpiring between (Genesis 1:2a -2b), we can continue on with our present study on the angelic footprint that reveals the Theory of Evolution for what it is - a lie and a farce.  It would benefit the reader to study the: WHEN WAS THE BEGINNING study to fully understand why this had to happen as well as all the statements made hitherto in this study.  But we shall leave it here for our purposes, you've been adequately briefed and have been given the wherewithal to follow your studies in that area if you so choose.

        If you have never been taught about the three earth ages written of in the Bible, perhaps the below Scripture will suffice.  It is no wonder that the Christian of today does not understand the Bible, they have never been taught the foundational principles within it (For a thorough foundation, see: WHEN WAS THE BEGINNING , MANKIND; THE TWO SEPARATE 'CREATION' EVENTS, WHAT WAS THE REAL SIN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN?!?).  And if they don't understand the beginning, how can they hope to understand the end?  They are told by so-called Bible "preachers/teachers" (really satan's little deceived slaves) that the first six chapters of Genesis are an allegory, or parable and myth.  Any Christian that teaches (or believes that) should be immediately taken outside and given forty-less-one smacks on the top of their empty head with a good ole' King James Bible.  Come-on Christian wake-up, how can you let satan take away the Word of God from you?!?  Did God lie to you in the first six chapters of His Holy Word or did some false so-called preacher/teacher lie to you in denying the Word of God!  And if you don't believe the first six chapters of the Bible then I dare say that you don't really believe any of it, who do you think your fooling?!?  You can't fool God!  Anyway, the below Scripture is valuable to the student in that within the one continuous Scripture we see all three earth ages mentioned:

2 Pet 3:5-13
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

[This is the 1st earth age, NOT the flood of Noah's time!  See (Jer 4:23-27) which speaks of this same event: " I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled." (Jer 4:25) ]

7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
         
[This is the 2nd earth age]
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.  (KJV)
        [This is the 3rd earth age, commonly called Heaven] 

        Now let's look back into that first earth age and witness the discoveries of the Archaeologists which bear witness to the Grandeur of the Creator God in the minds of those who haven't been corrupted away from their Lord God by the lies of satan spewed forth by the heathen minded so-called academia.  Please remember that the below excerpted articles are written by the atheist minded scientific community, and not us!  So please balance their taken-for-granted (by them) presuppositions that God has had no hand in the creation.  For God foreknew they would come along and corrupt His perfect Word and plan.  Don't always be so impressed with the Paleontologists who flaunt false Evolution Theories and debase the Lord God as though He or His written Word were a common liar - God forbid!:

1 Cor 3:19
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.  (KJV)

Rom 1:21-22
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools  (KJV)

        Don't worry, God sees them, He hears their lies, and He is not slack in exacting payment for those who deny Him and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, he is simply a very patient God, but He is coming:

Heb 10:30-31
30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.  (KJV)

2 Pet 3:9
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  (KJV)

        Let's look in on the pathetic wisdom of our heathen scientific community, those that are so wise that they have become fools, for only a fool denies Him who created him, and He that they must stand before in judgment.  You will have to forgive us if we seem a little "hot under the collar" with their absurdities, but this garbage is actually coming from some of our best educated men and women, and is perverting the minds of our innocent children - oh yes, God sees!  These scientists are indeed wise, educated yes, but deceived as well, deceived by satan who seeks to only destroy souls in Hell, many of the wisest shall be first in line.  

        These scientists and wise men read all the books of their equally deceived predecessors, their Charles Darwins etc., their University Professors who had not the internal courage nor moral fortitude to stand for the truth and reveal the lie that could not possibly have slipped past all of them; and they never picked up the book written by God through the influence of His Holy Spirit on the Prophets and Apostles who penned it's words; they ridicule the book that contains the key to all true wisdom, the Bible - the fools!  I didn't call them fools, God did:  "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction" (Prov 1:7).

        Without further ado, let's go to work on one of satan's best deceptions, the Theory of Evolution.  And may God open our minds and our hearts to see, understand, and accept the truth.  Remember, anything back beyond, say approximately, fourteen thousand years ago is from the first earth age.  The article below is it's original wording, and any commentary we make shall be in red brackets, i.e., [WBSG NOTE:xxx 


3.5 million year old Fossilized Footprints found in Laetoli Africa
National Science Foundation, WGBH Educational Foundation; 1998
Source of story: http://cgi.pbs.org/wgbh/aso/tryit/evolution/footprints.html

"How do we know if an early ape-man or woman walked upright? An examination of certain bones -- a tibia (leg bone) or a pelvis, for example -- can reveal the answer. So can fossilized footprints.        

        In 1976, members of a team led by Mary Leakey discovered the fossilized footprints of human ancestors in Laetoli, Africa. The footprints were formed 3.5 million years ago when at least two individuals walked over wet volcanic ash. The wet  ash hardened like cement and was then covered by more ash.

        The footprints show that the individuals had perfect, two-footed strides. They also reveal that one hominid was larger than the other. And because the footprints fall next to each other, they indicate that the two hominids were walking side by side and close enough to each other to be touching. 

 Photo of fossilized footprints  
tracks and a close-up of one of the hominid footprints at Laetoli, preserved
 in hardened volcanic ash 3.6 million years ago.

[WBSG NOTE:  You have to marvel at their reasoning.  OK, so two Apes were taking a walk together 3.5 million years ago, what does that mean?  Apes get along and play with each other, they walk together.  

Diagram comparing the way weight is transferred But personally, I think the tracks are much too close for them to be walking side-by-side.  Notice the close distance (what, maybe 9-10 inches?  Certainly no more than three widths of thier feet) between the left foot of the one creature with the left foot of the other.  

It might have worked had the footprints next to each other been the right foot on the left creature's track and the left foot on the right creature's track, but these are step for step, first both left feet and the next step is both right feet....there is no room between them for their bodies.  Nor do they appear to have the same gait, or even the same footprint for that matter.  But then I'm not a Scientist or a University Professor, I'm simply a Christian with God given common sense and faith.  By the way, the blue drawing of the two feet at right is theirs, from their own cast, we only inserted the captions]

Isa 44:24-25
24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
25 That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish  (KJV)

[News clip continued:]

         "Apes sometimes walk on two legs. How, then, can we be sure that the footprints weren't left by a couple of apes that decided to walk upright for a few yards? When an ape walks upright, weight is transmitted from the heel, along the outside of the foot, and then through the middle toes. A human foot transmits weight from the heel, along the outside of the foot, across the ball of the foot, and finally through the big toe -- this is a much more efficient way to transfer energy when walking upright. The imprints left behind at Laetoli clearly show the weight distribution of true upright walkers. [so that, in their logic, makes these animals our ancestors and God a liar]

        The footprints also look remarkably like a human's. In fact, they looked so human-like, some scientists had a hard time believing that they were made by Australopithecus afarensis (Lucy's species), the only human ancestor known to have lived at the time."  (end of news clip)

 A comparison:  

        The above comparison should lay waste to the false 'Theory of Evolution' once and for all in the mind of the reader.  Now below let's look at some articles from The World Book Encyclopedia 1999, the Encyclopedia could hardly be considered 'religion friendly,' so it is certainly more than fair to use it's articles to support the position of Creation over Evolution.  We shall highlight some points (bold & underline) in the articles to illustrate just how 'weak' the Theory of Evolution really is.  The articles are in their original words, and any commentary we make shall be in red brackets, i.e., [WBSG NOTE:xxx 

        You should be asking yourself why you weren't taught it (evolution) like this in Grammar School, and instead were taught the Theory of Evolution as though it was an indisputable scientific fact.  Satan does some of his 'best' corrupting of the facts in our school systems.  But his 'best' corrupting work is done from the false pulpits of the compromised churches of the world.  remember the four Hidden Dynasties of antichrist that he will corrupt and set himself in world power through, i.e., Education, Finance, Politics, Religion!  See:  The four Hidden Dynasties that will precede and usher in satan as the antichrist.   


"LUCY"
Excerpted from The World Book Encyclopedia 1999:

"The earliest known species of Australopithecus was A. anamensis, which appeared in eastern Africa around 4,000,000 years ago. This species seems to have evolved by about 3,700,000 years ago into another Australopithecus species, A. afarensis. The most complete australopithecine that scientists have found is a partial skeleton of a female A. afarensis. It was found at Hadar, Ethiopia. Scientists estimate that this creature, nicknamed "Lucy," was more than 31/2 feet (107 centimeters) tall and weighed about 60 pounds (27 kilograms). A. afarensis had about the same size brain that a chimpanzee has  

[WBSG NOTE:  That is because "Lucy" is an extinct species of chimpanzee]

Human physical development
Excerpted from The World Book Encyclopedia 1999:

"The Bible describes how God created the world and all its living things, including the first human beings, in six days. Many people accept this description as fact. 

Evidence from fossils has convinced most scientists that human beings developed over millions of years from ancestors that were not completely human. However, the fossil record does not yet provide enough information to trace human development in detail. As a result, not all experts agree on how human beings developed. This section describes human physical development as a majority of anthropologists believe it occurred."

The first human beings 
Excerpted from The World Book Encyclopedia 1999:

"Most anthropologists believe that the first human beings evolved from a gracile australopithecine about 2 million years ago. The oldest tools that scientists have found date from about 21/2 million years ago. But because no hominid fossils were found with these tools**, scientists do not know whether an australopithecine or an early human made them."  

** [WBSG NOTE:  You remember that we explained that angelic beings leave no bodily remains but that they did use tools which of course do remain to be found]

Monkey Hands and feet 
Excerpted from The World Book Encyclopedia 1999:

"Old World monkeys have opposable thumbs--that is, the thumb can be placed opposite any of the other fingers. This enables a monkey to grasp small food items. Most kinds of New World monkeys have thumbs that are only partly opposable. Their thumbs also do not move so freely as those of Old World monkeys. Two kinds of New World monkeys--spider monkeys and woolly spider monkeys--have only tiny thumbs or no thumbs at all. Among Old World monkeys, colobus monkeys have no thumbs. 

The feet of most monkeys are larger and more powerful than their hands. All monkeys have five toes on each foot. The big toes look and function much like thumbs, giving the monkey an extra pair of grasping "hands." Marmosets and tamarins have claws on their fingers and toes, except for their big toes, which have a nail. All other kinds of monkeys have flat or flattish nails on all their fingers and toes."   

[WBSG NOTE:  We see on "Lucy's" foot a thumb like a monkey instead of the 'big toe' that we humans have]

Physical characteristics, Humans vs. Apes 
Excerpted from The World Book Encyclopedia 1999:

"Human beings and the other primates share many physical features. For example, both human beings and apes rely on their excellent vision for much of their information about the environment. They have large eyes, sensitive retinas, and stereoscopic vision (the ability to perceive depth). Human beings and apes also have a highly developed nervous system and a large brain. Human beings and many other primates have long, flexible fingers and opposable thumbs, which can be placed opposite the fingers for grasping. In addition, their fingers and toes have nails instead of claws. 

Many of the physical characteristics that distinguish human beings from other primates are related to the ability of people to stand upright and walk on two legs. This ability chiefly requires long, powerful legs. The human rump has strong muscles that propel the body forward and balance the trunk alternately on each leg when a person walks. In contrast, apes spend most of their time climbing and swinging in trees or walking on all four limbs. Their rumps have relatively weak muscles, and their arms are longer and stronger than their legs. 

The human spine, unlike the spine of any other animal, has a curve in the lower back. This curve helps make upright posture possible by placing the body's center of gravity directly over the pelvis. The human foot is also specially adapted for walking on two legs. Apes use all four limbs to support their weight, and they can grasp objects almost as well with their feet as with their hands [WBSG NOTE:  Just like Lucy's foot]. In human beings, however, the feet support the entire weight of the body, and the toes have little ability to grasp or to move independently."

Prehuman ancestors 
Excerpted from The World Book Encyclopedia 1999:

"Anthropologists believe human beings, chimpanzees, and gorillas all developed from a common ancestor that lived from 5 million to 10 million years ago. Many scientists once thought that the earliest direct ancestor of human beings was a creature called Ramapithecus. This creature lived from 8 million to 14 million years ago. During the late 1900's, however, discoveries of Ramapithecus fossils suggested the creature was an ancestor of the orangutan, a kind of ape"   

[WBSG NOTE:  Someday they will be saying that about all of their supposed Ape-Men, but by then how many school children's minds will have been perverted away from God?  God is our Heavenly Father, we are made in His image, not some Ape's!]

"More than 4 million years ago, a more advanced form of humanlike creature called Australopithecus appeared in Africa.  Fossil remains of the australopithecine skeleton indicate that these creatures stood fully erect and walked on two legs. The australopithecines were about 4 to 5 feet (120 to 150 centimeters) tall and had a brain about a third the size of a modern human brain."  

[WBSG NOTE:  You remember their "australopithecine" named "Lucy."  Lucy is the earliest known species of Australopithecus, A. anamensis, which appeared in eastern Africa around 4,000,000 years ago.  She (it) is an extinct species of chimpanzee.  It gets better, read the News clipping below and take a look at the head on the Ape that is supposed to be 2 -2.5 million years closer to our present time than "Old Lucy."]


Near complete 1.5 and 2.0 million year old ape-man skull found
B.B.C. News; Wednesday, 26 April, 2000, 16:58 GMT 17:58 UK

Early hominid skull and jaw"South African scientists believe they may have unearthed the most complete early hominid skull ever found. They hope it will shed light on the distant origins of the human race.

Two fossils were discovered, a skull and a jaw, which are between 1.5 and 2.0 million years old.

"They are not direct ancestors of modern humans but are more like 'kissing cousins' of our ancestors," said Lee Berger, director of the Palaeoanthropological Unit for Research and Exploration at Johannesburg's University of Witwatersrand.  The scientists say the differences and similarities of the hominids from human ancestors, and the reasons for their extinction, may provide clues to humanity's own evolution.

Lost lovers?

The pair of fossils were christened Orpheus and Eurydice after the lovers of Greek mythology and have been identified as Paranthropus robustus, a hominid line that became extinct about one million years ago.  Scientists say the skull belongs to a female of the species while the jawbone belongs to a male."   (end of news clip) 


        They say that this thing is our distant cousin.  A cousin is the child of your parents sibling.  She's a beauty huh?  Talk about an over-bite!  I'm no scientist, but she sure looks to me like an Ape found in any Zoo today, so also does Lucy, and all the other farces that the atheist scientific world parades in front of us, insulting our intelligence and God's Dominion.  

        How on God's earth they could call that thing an "Ape-Man" is beyond me.  What do you think?  Am I missing something here?  Scientists should be ashamed at their foolishness and admit their error instead of covering one lie with an even more bizarre one....  But then their funding would be cut off, wouldn't it?  And we couldn't have that, could we?  Take a wild guess who's funding them; remember the four Hidden Dynasties of antichrist that he will corrupt and set himself in world power through, i.e., Education, Finance, Politics, Religion!

        And don't think the 'great minds' of our scientific community can't be fooled either.  Observe the below story, and you should realize just how shaky a ground the Evolution Theory is really based upon, they (the Paleontologists) are almost as silly as little children waiting for the Tooth Fairy or Santa Clause:

Piltdown Man is revealed as fake in1953:
The New York Times November 21, 1953

"Piltdown Man Hoax Is Exposed," announced the New York Times on November 21, 1953. "Part of the skull of the Piltdown man, one of the most famous fossil skulls in the world, has been declared a hoax by authorities at the British Natural History Museum," the article said.

The Piltdown fossils, including a portion of the skull, a jawbone, and a few teeth, were found in 1911 and 1912.  This "Piltdown Man" was believed by many to be "the earliest Englishman," and in fact, the missing link between apes and humans.  But in 1953, the jawbone was found to be that of a modern ape -- orangutan, most likely -- that had been treated with chemicals to make it look as though it had been lying in the ground for hundreds of centuries. The cap of the skull was still thought to be a genuine fossil, but far more recent than originally believed.

"This declaration . . . has been made after twenty years of rumors and uneasy speculation among European paleontologists about the authenticity of the bones," the New York Times stated. The London Star headlines shouted, "The Biggest Scientific Hoax of the Century!"

It was big. Several highly respected and serious scientists were deceived and their reputations forever tarnished, and years of research and thought had been wasted on trying to analyze and fit the fake fossils into the record of human evolution.  The relics were said to have been found in Piltdown, England by workers digging a pit.  They handed over the bones to Charles Dawson, a lawyer and amateur geologist.  He recruited the help of Arthur Woodward Smith, Tielhard de Chardin [A heavy occultist!, no surprise that he had his hand in this], Arthur Keith, and other notable scientists, who were very excited about the find.  It was easy for them to believe that the bones, a very thick skull about the size of a modern human's and a large, apelike jaw, were part of the same individual because that physiology was what they expected from a "missing link."  It also suited them -- perhaps subconsciously -- because it was found in England [now that's good science, huh?  These are the people that you are going to believe over God?!?].

The New York Times in 1953 further reported, "Sir Arthur Keith, famous British paleontologist, spent more than five years piecing together the fragments of what he called a 'remarkable' discovery. He said the brain case was 'primitive in some respects but in all its characteristics distinctly human.'  The Piltdown man was named Eoanthropus dawsonii, or Dawn man, in honor of its discoverer, and paleontologists throughout the world handled it with reverence.

...On November 20, 1953, they reported their findings in the bulletin of the Natural History Museum. The scientists of 40 years before, they explained, had been victims of "a most elaborate and carefully prepared hoax. The faking of the mandible [jawbone]," they wrote, "is so extraordinarily skillful and the perpetration of the hoax appears to have been so entirely unscrupulous and inexplicable as to find no parallel in the history of paleontological discovery."

The newspaper headlines the following day shared the story with the world.  At that time, the skullcap was still believed to be about 50,000 years old.  In 1959, however, the recently discovered carbon-14 dating technique was used to show that it was between 520 and 720 years old, the jawbone slightly younger!  While different individuals have been accused of being the perpetrator of the hoax, there is no agreement upon who it might have been."  (End of article)

        Dear Bible student, Evolution is a lie, and you should stand by that and teach your children the truth.  The Theory of Evolution is not a mistake by good intentioned albeit deceived scientists, but it is a bald face LIE coming from men of reprobate hearts who should have (and do) know better!  The 21st Century Scientist cannot claim ignorance on this.  Can the wise Christian really think that this is anything else but satanic influence?  Putting the initials PH.D. behind the name of a God-denying Heathen doesn't mean squat!  That just makes them well educated God-denying Heathen.  But what saith the Lord God about all this folly?:

Ps 9:15-17
15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.  (KJV)

Gen 1:26-27
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  (KJV)

Gen 1:19-25
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.  (KJV)

        That's "kind after kind," not 'one kind evolving into another kind'!  Why is this so hard to accept?  I would think it harder to make someone believe that they have evolved from pond scum, than it would be to make them believe that their Lord God formed them in His image and likeness, just as they are, and placed their unique soul into them, a soul and spirit that will return to the Lord God who made them after the death of their flesh body.

Eccl 12:7
7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.  (KJV)

Isa 29:13-16
13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?  (KJV)

It is no small thing when God swears upon Himself!:

Heb 6:13
13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself  (KJV)

Ezek 18:2-4
2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?
3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel.
4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.  (KJV)


Num 23:19
19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?  (KJV)

Titus 1:2
2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began  (KJV)

I believe God, and if that makes them call me a fool, then I'll be a fool for God!  How about you?

God bless!
