Question: What was the hominid species that rejected god? I know that that Neanderthals wore clothes (before the fall we were naked), and that they even buried their dead and decorated gravestones. And they are known to exist 200,000 years ago. Does this mean that the fall happened to Neanderthals? Answer: The simple answer is that […]

Question: I was reading that you believe that God used evolution to create modern man.  However, to refute this point, I’ve heard Christians point out that evolution is a process that is achieved through death.  However, death did not exist until Adam (a fully developed human) brought sin into the world.  Now, this is a […]

Comment from "Disappointed":    We most certainly did evolve, over the period of millions of years.  As a matter of fact, if one were to visit the earth just 30,000 years ago, one would have found not one but several species of "human" forms.  Today, scientists from around the world direct major projects pursuing answers to outstanding […]

Question:  I know that we are all descendents of Adam and Eve, but what about the cavemen who proceeded them? Aren’t they the earlier forms of humans or are they a different kind of species? (Similar to how gorillas are almost identical to humans genetically) When we look at the genealogy in the Bible, it shows that […]

Question:,There have been all these findings of skeletal remains scientists claim to have been prehistioric ancestors, like Lucy, the Neanderthals, etc. In truth, from the looks of these remains, I can’t say I believe it. I wanted to know, have any of these findings ever been proven wrong?,Answer:,I am not sure what you mean when […]

Question:,Do we have any archeological evidence to back-up the long lifespans of Genisis? If lifespans were commonly long back then wouldn’t at least some skeletons from that range of time show evidence of great age?,Answer:,There is no physical evidence supporting the several hundred year life spans listed in Genesis. Not as far as I know. […]

Question; I have been following the work of Hugh Ross and his team on reasonstobelieve.org. A claim made on that web-site is that we can show using y-chromosomal and mitochondrial DNA that the population of mankind can be traced back to a mitochondrial Eve and a y-chromosomal Adam. Furthermore the dating of Eve at an […]

Question:Please comment on three quotes I found in your book, “Is There a God?” Page 23. ” If in asking questions about the Bible one is unwilling to reach the conclusion that the Bible is wrong, then it is easy to predict what conclusion will be reached. Page 25.” Belief in Adam and Eve can […]

I just read the article by Professor Geisler about early monotheism and had a few questions. I’m guessing that the author is assuming that Adam and Eve were the first ‘homo sapiens’ , and that the levant civilizations, particularly that of the ancient ‘habiru’ was the very first. I have read that the Chinese and […]

To what race did Mary and Joseph belong? The concept of “race” did not really exist in the ancient world. As far as I know, the Jews did not have words for different races. The Bible certainly does not hint at the race of Mary of Joseph. I believe we can assume that they were […]

1. Cro-Magnon lived up to 100,000 and Neanderthal up to 300,000 years ago. What was the most recent dates for those species and when were they extinct? What year was Homo-Sapien on the scene – 45,000 years ago? Cain was the first agricultural farmer as far as evidence in the Bible, were the Homo-Sapiens the […]

In Genesis 2:7b What does it mean when it says “and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life”? is the “breath of life” referring to oxygen or the spirit/soul? I would say that, when in doubt, we should let the obvious meaning stand. Genesis seems to be saying that God made the inanimate Adam […]

We do not know when the flood happened, but presumably it was at least several thousand years ago. I can only assume that human beings evolved the different “racial” characteristics over the past several thousand years. In a gene pool with a fairly broad genetic diversity, the physical characteristics which lead to the greatest survival […]

What about the Giants like Goliath? Is there any record outside the Bible that describes them? And how can I explain 2 Samuel 21:19? I suppose you will find some one who will claim that some obscure reference to giants in the literature of the Assyrians or the Egyptians or so forth supports the Biblical […]

The term literally means “the fallen ones.” Some say they were a race of giants, the offspring of angels and women, to which Goliath and Lahmi belonged. (This sounds too much like Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology for me.) Others say they were the sinful seed of Cain, who later appear as the Canaanites. Scholarship […]
