Are you smarter than a cave man? (Sounds similar to a TV game show, doesn’t it?)
According to evolutionists, you should be. The further you go back in time, the more primitive and less intelligent man becomes. They want you to think that cavemen who made stone tools were only a little smarter than the apes they evolved from.
In the article below, the researchers were surprised at the technology used in the making of stone tools recently discovered in a cave in South Africa. As you read their report, notice how amazed they are that these ‘ancient’ humans were actually smarter than they thought they were.
From a biblical point of view, man possessed an incredible amount of intelligence from the very beginning. From the moment Adam was made from the dust of the earth, he had the intelligence to name the animals as God brought them to him. In Genesis 4 we are told that Abel knew how to tend sheep and Can knew how to farm and work the land. Later on in Genesis 4, we see the descendents of Cain knew how to make tents, tend livestock, make and play musical instruments, and work in bronze and iron.
Stone Age Toolmakers Surprisingly Sophisticated
When they made tools, our prehistoric predecessors weren’t just pounding rocks. They could also carve with remarkable finesse. A new study suggests that cave dwellers were using a delicate stone-carving technique called pressure flaking 75,000 years ago, 55,000 years before scientists thought the technique was invented. And there are hints that pressure flaking might reach back even further in time.
Compared with haphazardly beating out new tools with a hammer, pressure flaking is a much more controlled, precise way of shaping stone. The researchers, led by Vincent Mourre of the University of Toulouse-Le Mirail in France, examined 127 triangular and leaf-shaped rock points (presumably for spears or knives) buried in the 75,000-year-old soil of a South African cave. Although pressure flaking had been identified in younger rocks before, the rocks had been made of flint. The ones the researchers found were made of silcrete—a much more difficult material to work with. To be sure they could tell which technique had been used,…
