Man Did Not Evolve from Apes

Misconception 1: Man evolved from Apes

So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis 1:27 KJV)

Just about anyone in the “civilized” world has seen the little chart showing man looking like an ape, hunched over, and gradually standing more upright, losing his hair and looking more like a man. You have also most certainly heard of the “missing link”

What is the problem with that? Well, when Darwin postulated the idea of evolution, there was a scarcity of fossils. He expected that as time progressed, archaeologists would find transitional life forms (Missing links).

“Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely-graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against the theory. The explanation lies, as I believe, in the extreme imperfection of the geological record.” [1]

Conception of Man's Evolution from Apes

The problem? In the approximate 140 years since Darwin wrote, archaeologists have found not one “missing link”.

Not one.
