"It's so easy a caveman can do it."
A popular insurance company boasts that saving money by switching to them is easy enough for a caveman to do it. While their commercials are humorous, they build on the popular notion that "prehistoric" people, or cavemen, once roamed the earth as the evolutionary precursor to our modern day humans. We've all seen the images--based on nothing more than the evolutionist's desire for them to have existed--of scraggly, hunched over subhumans draped in leopard print loin cloths, dragging clubs behind them. These unevolved imbeciles only grunt out broken English, "Me make fire."
Evolutionists need these cavemen to have existed to bridge the gap between primate and people. No sane person could ever believe that an ape turned into a man wearing a jacket and tie, and possessing complete mastery of a spoken language. These cavemen are just like all the other missing links or transitional forms between species; there is no evidence to suggest they ever existed. In fact, the evidence points towards the opposite.
As far back as we can trace human existence, mankind has been nothing less than smart, resourceful, and creative. Consider the pyramids, which date back at least 4,000 years. These magnificent structures are so precisely made that a sheet of notebook paper cannot be wedged in between the blocks. The blocks must have been hand crafted, with each layer needing a different sized block, with no margin for error. Evidently some ancient scaffolding was used to erect the pyramids that are still a marvel of architecture, measuring hundreds of feet in height.
Think about Stonehenge in England. A project begun around 3000 BC, each stone is an estimated 25 tons, standing 18 feet high, and some stacked on top of each other. This would be an incredible undertaking today; how was it done 5,000 years ago? No one knows.
As far back as we know mankind has had a written language, whether through alphabets or hieroglyphics, which only points towards intelligence.
Obviously people used to live in caves, but not because they were prehistoric idiots; caves make natural, durable shelters that remain cool in the heat. Just knowing people once lived in caves doesn't prove man evolved, because people still live in caves today, including 30 million in China alone. Does that mean they haven't evolved?
God created man in His image, intelligent from the days of Adam. We didn't evolve into who we are today, we have been this way since Day 1. We'll, actually Day 6.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
