We did NOT evolve from the common ancestor of Apes...

    Is it correct to say that you believe in evolution?

    UnScriptural, since Humans (descendants of Adam) were made the 3rd Day, BEFORE plants, herbs, rain and trees. Genesis 2:4-9

    Gen 2:4 ¶ These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth (3rd Day Gen 1:9) and the heavens, Gen 2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: (3rd Day Gen 1:12) for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. Gen 2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

    Gen 2:7 ¶ And the LORD God formed man (Hebrew-Adam) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (3rd Day)

    Gen 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed. Gen 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

    IOW, Adam was made the 3rd Day before the plants herbs rain and trees, which GREW on the 3rd Day according to Genesis 1:12. Amen?

    Absolutely NOT since Adam, the first Human, was made on the 3rd Day Genesis 2:4-9 AND "every living creature that moveth" was NOT made until the 5th Day. This makes it impossible that Adam could have possibly evolved from creatures which were NOT made until 2 Days after Adam was made. The Theory of Evolution is NOT factual Science but instead is a false assumption of people who tried to eliminate God from His own Creation. Amen?

    Too gnostic for me. Gnosticism is an ancient cult.

    False accusation made by someone who cannot support their view with actual Scripture. I looked up the word Gnosticism and you are totally wrong. Be ashamed.

    Man is VERY-different from apes. While their body shapes are close, there are VAST differences besides intellect. Men don't have prehensile tails.Mens' & apes' teeth are quite-different. Apes can't stand on 2 feet very long, despite their being 3 times stronger than the same-size man; their skeletal arrangement just won't allow it. And there are at least 40 million differences in the DNA of a human & that of a gorilla or chimp.

    Dolphins are more-like fish than we are like apes.

    I just had to drop in here and leave this choice comment I heard a preacher make in the stand, relating to this subject... He said the talk going around now is that man evolved from apes... That is the biggest bunch of poppycock and lies, that the world wants us to believe... I have never had an ancestor swinging from a tree, but I might have had a few hanging from one... Brother Glen:eek:

    Actually, Today's Humans are the descendants of Adam and prehistoric people called the "sons of God" in the Bible. We have the intelligence of God through Adam Genesis 3:22 AND we have a body of flesh inherited from the sons of God who were on planet Earth for millions of years BEFORE the Ark arrived on our planet. That is God's Truth of WHY Humans have the DNA of prehistoric people in our blood. Genesis 6:4

    I don't think he means everyone. Probably just Baptists.

    Humans could not have possibly evolved from Apes since Apes are not as intelligent as Humans. (descendants of Adam) That's because only people who have inherited the superior intelligence of Adam, which is like God's Genesis 3:22 are Humans. Apes did NOT descend from Adam, but from Water, thus it was impossible that Humans could have possibly evolved from them.

    Scientists have made a grievous error in falsely assuming that Humans (descendants of Adam) are the SAME as the innocent natural creatures which God created and brought forth from WATER on the 5th Day of the creation. Genesis 1:21 Humans interbred with them Genesis 6:4 and the children changed because they had inherited the superior intelligence of Adam, with the mind of God. Noah's grandson's, and their descendants changed a planet of Apes into the land of 7.7 Billion Living Humans (descendants of Adam). That is God's Truth which agrees with every discovery of mankind.

    I have not met many Apes. I remember Willie B from the Atlanta zoo decades ago. I have met many people. I am pretty sure Willie B was more intelligent than some of the people I have met.

    Do you think Willie B descended from Adam?

    If you don't agree, then post your Scripture which refutes the Scripture I posted. Amen?

    No, of course not. I'd assume he descended from apes (Willie B was a gorilla, Adam was a man).

    That's my point. This is the verse I posted: Below is my understanding with my words in black:

    Gen 3:22 ¶ And the LORD God (Jesus) said, Behold, the man (Heb-Adam) is become as one of Us, (The Trinity) to know good and evil:

    The above shows us the difference between Humans and animals. Humans can reason and judge because they know the difference between good and evil. Their intellect in this is the SAME as God's. Animals are innocent creatures and they cannot know the difference since they do NOT have the superior intelligence of God. A good example of this is that only Humans post because animals don't have enough intelligence to post. That is God's irrefutable Truth in Genesis.
