Our Ancestors Looked Like What?

From Issue: Discovery 10/1/2009

Have you ever wondered what the Neanderthals really looked like? Did “Lucy” look more like an ape or a person? What about the dozens of pictures appearing on magazine and book covers around the world that supposedly illustrate the truth of human evolution? What are the real facts behind the illustrations and models of our alleged ape-like ancestors?

Since no one has ever seen an ape-like human (they do not exist, and never did), there are no photographs of hairy, half-human/half-ape creatures. All of the life-like illustrations and recreations you see are based upon evolutionists’ imaginations and misinterpretations of fossils.

Consider that back in the early 1900s, evolutionists illustrated Neanderthals as very hairy, stooped over, ape-like creatures. In the early 2000s, however, scientists emphasize the humanity of the Neanderthals. Evolutionists now talk about how close the Neanderthals were to modern humans, rather than how ape-like they were. (Perhaps that is because “Neanderthals” were humans!)

Another alleged ape-like ancestor of humans, the “Hobbit,” has been recreated by various people around the world. Yet even when the models are based upon the same fossils, the recreations often appear nothing alike. Recently, one Hobbit was sculpted as pale, wrinkled, round-faced, round-eyed, and small-nosed, with scraggly facial hair and thinning head-hair. Yet, another Hobbit was created as a dark-skinned, tight, chiseled-faced, wide-eyed, big-nosed creature with a head full of hair, but with no facial hair. Amazingly, evolutionary artists made the models from the same skull! Yet, the models look nothing alike.

No doubt, you will see a lot of images in your lifetime that supposedly offer proof of evolution. Be sure to keep in mind, however, that no one ever observed ape-like creatures evolving into humans. No one was there to take pictures of these creatures that never existed in the first place. All of the illustrations you see are the result of (1) misinterpretations of fossils and (2) an overactive, misguided imagination.
