ARGUMENT ON EVOLUTION OF MAN Though man has no knowledge about the origin of universe, it is strange seeing him talking about it when he was born some million years later. In ancient times the scientists gave many false assumptions about different theories and kept man in ignorance. All those people went to grave with those false beliefs. Later when wisdom dawned on them they rectified their theories. Man can be wrong in his findings but God can never be. Genesis, the Bible’s first book, tells us that God created the world through word. Atheist might pooh- pooh this and evolutionists could also rubbish this fact by calling it primitive, ahistorical, and unscientific. God said that He created the whole world and it is so. It is indeed foolishness of man to laugh at it when he could not make even a single strand of hair. Man’s arguments cannot stand before the Bible. Read it yourself and tell whether the world was created as per it is written in the Bible or the way Charles Darwin had said. It is found that the Gorillas, gibbons, chimpanzees, and other primitive animals have close resemblance with man. Their jaws, skull size, standing style, and many other traits make man believe that man has evolved from them. It’s a known fact that man is the most intelligent and supreme over all other living things. Nothing can stand in comparison with him. It is indeed strange to believe that man has come out of animals and it seems it took many years for him to transform into the present form. Let us see what God said about the creation. Acts 17:26 says, “And He has made from one (not from apes) every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwelling.” We all know who that one is – Adam. We all have come from him. Animals are different from birds and birds from men. Just because they have close resemblance it is idiotic to say that man has evolved from the animals and it is of course a blunder as per the Bible. Genesis 1:25 says, “And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind.” With the development of science many scientists like Corrollius, Linnaeus, Angler, Plantal and many more have differentiated plants and animals. It is clear that man doesn’t know about himself. We have seen men making sculptures of all the great people. Then why don’t we see any sculpture of an ape made in ancient times? We also see each nation having a national animal. Why isn’t an ape taken as one? We only see a lily, peacock, tiger, star etc chosen to be a nation’s pride. Why not an ape is selected which you think is your ancestor? Not only that if you see any species, it has capacity only to give birth to an offspring of its kind. Even today we see a monkey giving birth to another monkey and a man to man. So, it is not proper to observe the jaws, skull etc and come to a conclusion. 1 Corinthians 15:39 says, “All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds.” Is it enough to say that man has come from apes only because some organs are similar? Isn’t it necessary for all the organs to match to come to this conclusion? It is written in the Bible that the flesh of animals is different from that of man. How then can you say that man came from animals? After making Adam God led all the animals to him for him to name each one of it. Genesis 2:20 says, “So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.” Adam was like a man then but not an ape. A gorilla came to him as a gorilla only. Man has failed completely in understanding God. So, he couldn’t understand the nature as well. God created every living thing perfectly and there was no need for any them to change into some other being after coming into this world.
There are many who still believe that man has come from the apes which are less intellectual than him. The reason for this thinking is man had no knowledge of God and His power. If man sees everything from his point of view, his understanding would be like this. God said about people like these in 1 Corinthians 2:14- “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” All those who believe that man came from apes; do they at least know where these apes came from? They don’t even know that. They believed that there was a unicellular organism in the beginning which in the process turned into multi cellular organisms. It seems even we were made in the same way. According to Stanley Muller, Cyano bacterium was considered to be the first living organism. Is this theory correct? No way. We can confidently tell that the whole world was created by God and certainly man couldn’t have made it for it is beyond his capacity. And they mustn’t have come on their own because even they are not so intelligent. Let us see what the Bible, the great book of knowledge, says in this regard. Hebrews 1:13, 14 say, “But to which of the angels has He said: ‘Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool’? Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” It is understood that these angels are all those that we see in nature and they are there to serve us. The Spirit that is in us is the God’s Spirit and this certainly cannot come to us from the angels because they do not have God’s Spirit in them. The angels were born by His word but we are made out of His hands and shared His Spirit. See the way Satan is working. How clever is he! He became successful in making man believe that he is also an animal because he came from it. He made man believe that he is nothing but an animal. He made man forget his true identity. Man forgot that he is certainly the child of God who is born out of Him and shared His Spirit. Thinking that he is an animal, he continued behaving like it. Though he is more intelligent than animals, we see him living like an animal and behaving in the same way. We see him wasting all his time with stupid experiments on nature trying to know its origin and having no time for God and His works. Oh man! Remember that you are the very image of God and share His Spirit. You are indeed a great power on earth and nothing can match you. So stop thinking that you are an ape and be holy because your Father is holy and conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear.
