Creation Science Monday – Humanities Family Tree: Homo Naledi

Hello dear ones! Please forgive my absence this week. We were told housing had a mix up, and was going to have to put us in a hotel for the final week of our assignment. After packing like crazy, they fixed the mix up and we’re staying in corporate housing the the week. In other words, it’s been a crazy week! Lord willing, this week will be an easier move due to the extreme packing from last week. Today, though, I’d like to briefly touch on the h. Naledi fossils. I’ve talked about these before, but they’re still touted as a human ancestor so I thought it best to add it into the tree.

It’s interesting, friends, that most scientists will admit there is a huge gaping hole in the fossil records, right where ancient apes should be. This is, obviously, because when paleontologists find ancient apes they insist they’re human ancestors. Like was done for so long with Lucy, and is now being down with Naledi. Often times articles will refer to Naledi as having many human like features, however that is debated even within the evolutionist and secular communities. The curvature of the hands, the hips, and even the strange attributes of the feet, in the Naledi fossils suggest these are ancient apes not deserving of the Homo title.

It’s worth noting that the cave these 1550 fossils were found in is extremely difficult to reach. It takes experts in spelunking to belly crawling half a mile, climbing a huge wall, then tunneling down a chute just to get to the chamber these were in. The bones themselves were found by spelunkers and cave enthusiasts. The jumbled mess of bones doesn’t seem to suggest burial, no were any tools found with them. It seems more likely, to me, that these bones were washed into the cave, than to assume some ancient human like species chose to dwell in such a difficult home. Either way, the bones show that these were clearly an ancient, extinct, species of apes. They also show the deep desire evolutionists have to bend evidence to fit their worldview. I hope this short post is a blessing to you all, and that you can continue to use this information to segue into the Gospel. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
