The evolutionists will tell us that man started off primitive, in fact as a ball of goo. But, after all of our evolution was complete we reached a wonderful stage, humanity. In my college-level textbooks, the theory is presented as fact, with no alternative view, it is seen of as much a fact that Julius Caesar was killed by Brutus as that man started off as primitive and moved to more complex.
First, it seems we had the Stone Age, and then we moved to the Bronze Age, after that we go to the Metalworking Age, and then, if we do not stay there, but continue to advance, we will finally become modern men with universities to remind us how close we are to apes.
However, as Christians, our starting point is not what a biased scientist says, in his fallible reason, but rather we look to the Scriptures. Geneses 4:20-22 says And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
This is only the fifth generation of mankind. The first man, Adam, is still alive, and already we have artificers in brass and iron, musical instruments, (scholars tell us those also started off simple) and tents, rather than the ground. Also, we know man was talking at this time, thus discrediting the theory that that skill took a long time to develop. (The most insane theory on how this skill developed I have ever heard of is that ancient man started eating fungi, which caused him to begin to speak.)
Ancient civilizations, those primitive people who were supposed to barely be able to know how to speak, built the great pyramids. Structures so gigantic that even today we do not know how they did it.The books they left us, such as the Gilgamesh Epoch, show that they knew how to write. And, if some scholars are correct, Adam may have written a part of Genesis, thus showing that the first man know how to transfer thought from his mind onto some sort of material.
In places like Peru, we find things such as the Nazca Lines. Gigantic lines running over miles of desert, you are barely aware they are there when you are on the ground. But once you take to the air, you see amazingly geometrically accurate pictures. Pictures you cannot see on the ground, pictures invisible to the only place primitive man was supposed to have been able to access. Although I am not proposing that the Peruvians had airplanes, scholarly work has been done that at least suggests that they may have had hot air balloons.
It seems that perhaps the scientists were wrong when they said that man was simple and became more complex. However, they will always fly from the word of God, because to except that He created is to except that He rules. Because science may, from one or two finds, seem to contradict the Bible, does mean we must throw out the Scriptures, rather we should have faith, recognizing we may never understand everything in the life. However, “Truth crushed to earth will rise again.”
