There are two different accounts of our history: one based on man’s ideas and the other on God’s Word. According to man’s ideas about history, humans evolved from ape-like creatures and were originally primitive and unintelligent. Evolutionists expect our past to be littered with primitive tools. Advanced civilizations, they say, are relatively new.
But the Bible’s history records a much different picture. Mankind was created in God’s image, intelligent from the beginning. Genesis even tells us that a few generations after Adam, humans were building cities and working with bronze and iron!
Man was never a primitive brute.
