This is a short one, but it’s worth a look. It’s from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. His brief masterpiece is titled Neanderthals — Descendants of Adam. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Now, as we’ve said many times before, Neanderthals were human.
The word “human” is used to refer to us — Homo sapiens. But ol’ Hambo is not only the world’s holiest man, he also knows more about science than everyone else, so we should pay attention to what he says:
They used fire, buried their dead with rituals, wore jewelry, possibly wore make-up, and even organized and heated the water in their homes.
Wow — they had homes with heated water! Hambo’s sentence includes a link to this AIG article from last October, which we somehow ignored: Neanderthals, Like Other Humans, Heated Water, and Organized Their Homes. It talks about a Neanderthal cave in Spain and it tells us:
Based on the arrangement of artifacts and hearthstones, the Abric Romaní cave seems organized into functional rooms. Near one rock wall is a hole measuring 16 by 12 by 4 inches. Well-used hearths, containing stones fractured by heat, surround it. Archaeologists suspect this built-in basin was used to heat water by adding heated stones from adjacent hearths.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! That hole means they “heated the water in their homes”? Let’s read on from Hambo’s new post:
They were humans, made in God’s image and descended from Adam and Eve just like us.
But from their fossils, it’s obvious that they weren’t “just like us.” How does Hambo explain the differences? Here’s what he says:
Neanderthals simply represent a people group that formed after the dispersion at the Tower of Babel, after the Flood, just a few thousand (not hundreds of thousands) years ago. They had unique characteristics that likely became more prominent as they were isolated from other people by the divinely created language barrier.
Oh, they became funny-looking after the Tower of Babel. Yes, that explains it. This is the rest of Hambo’s brief — but very informative! — post:
So it’s to be expected in a biblical worldview that modern humans and Neanderthals share DNA.
Yeah, okay. Hey, Hambo — what about the 95% similarity of human and chimp DNA? Oh, we shouldn’t pay any attention to that. It doesn’t mean anything. Great post, Hambo!
