How Religious Were Neanderthals?
Warren Krug, LSI Journal 2017, 2 pages.

First, it is most certainly not “clear” that Neanderthals were merely our “cousins” and not us. Isn’t the fact they mated with humans and passed down their genes to modern humans proof that they must have been members of our human species as well?

Essay #7:  If We Resemble Apes, Does That Mean
We Evolved From Apes?

Exerpt: "One of the problems with the similarity = evolutionary ancestry axiom is that evolutionists ignore it whenever it doesn't fit their evolutionary scenarios. There are many instances of remarkable similarities between animals that evolutionists consider to be only distantly related. "


Essay #8:  Is The Human Embryo Essentially A Fish
With Gills?

Excerpt: "Embryologists are now aware that the embryos of each species of animal are unique and dynamically functional systems. The human embryo does not become human at some point during its development, rather it is uniquely human at every stage of its development."

Question #12. Were there really cavemen?
Excerpt: "Of the so-called cavemen, Neanderthals are the best known.  Recent research has uncovered interesting facts about these early humans.  They had all the physical features needed to talk normally; they cooked their food; they wore make-up; they made tools as advanced as those of other humans of the time; and – most important of all – DNA evidence indicates that they interbred with other humans, confirming they are the same species or race as are we.  One computer rendering of a young female Neanderthal based on a specimen shows her with fair skin, red hair, and not looking much different from some young lady in your town."

Question #13. What about human evolution?

Human or Ape, No In-between
Mark Bergemann, LSI Journal 2017, 2 pages.

Humans have always been humans. Apes have always been apes. How then do evolutionists claim to have bones of part human, part ape creatures? The evolution story is a mixture of reality and fabrication. Evolutionists’ claims for human evolution are an example of that truth. Evolutionists start with real bones, fossils, and artifacts. These remains are from humans and apes who lived and died in the past. That is the truth part. Then the fabrication begins.
 
Natural Selection -know evolution series
Mark Bergemann, LSI Journal 2016, 5 pages.

The evolution story is a mixture of reality and fabrication.  Natural selection is a great example of this truth.  

Reality: Natural selection produces new species of plants and animals.  
Fabrication: The claim that natural selection produces new kinds of plants and animals.  
 
There are many species in most Biblical kinds.  Every kind of plant and animal which exists today, or which has gone extinct, was created by God thousands of years ago during the six days of creation.  No new kinds ever develop.  New species develop all the time, but always within their own kind.  Birds did not descend from dinosaurs, they descended from birds.  People did not descend from apelike creatures, they descended from people.

Excerpt: "Working on a remote Indonesian island, Australian scientists have reported the finding of bones of a human dwarf species which they have named Homo floresiensis or Flores Man and nicknamed "The Hobbit" after JRR Tolkien’s fantasy creatures."
