    The Smithsonian Institution has a website which presents the claims of modern neo-Darwinist evolutionary theorists that the human ancestors of all American people originated and descended from non-human ape-like creatures in Africa.

    I would like to know if any creationists would like to fellowship with me (and hopefully other creationists) in examining and exploring the information posted in the Smithsonian website for purposes of discovering, discussing and exposing the biased and prejudicial assumptions and logic inherent in their claims concerning the origins of all American people from Africa.

    According to this document classical Darwinian evolutionism has us all coming from apes/chimps

    But that is not all that Darwin had to say on this matter. What organism was it from which Darwin said humans had evolved? He continued:

    </font>[/QUOTE]Besides using euphemistic terms such as "ape-like" to imply that our ancestors were rather apish-looking, the Smithsonian stresses "that humans did not evolve from living chimpanzees," but that chimp and human species descended from a "common ancestor that was distinct from other African apes."

    This "common ancestor" is still classified as an ape by neo-Darwinist evolutionists just like chimps and humans are today. What the Smithsonian Institute neglects to tell the American people is that neo-Darwinist theorists have already classified all Americans as apes in the Hominidae family tree of Great Apes to begin with! Biologically speaking then, the net effect of what they are saying is that modern American human apes descended from African non-human apes.
    In other words, some unknown non-human African apes evolved into modern chimpanzees and human apes.
    Wait till you see what fossils they use to represent "early human species" in their attempts to "reconstruct" our modern human evolution from their "common" ape ancestor.
