When Did Humans Start Walking Upright?

Posted on

Evolutionists have to believe that humans evolved from apes who evolved from monkeys, who evolved from some lower form of mammal who evolved from a reptiles who evolved from an amphibian who evolved from a fish who evolved from a worm who evolved from a multicellular creature who evolved from an amoeba like one cell organisms who evolved from a mixture of lifeless molecule in a primordial soup over 3 billion years ago.

With this belief of evolutionary origins, evolutionists have longed to answer to the question of when and how man first started to walk upright, freeing his hands for other things.  In that search, a team of researchers from the US, England, Japan and Portugal believe they may have solved the why part of this elusive question.

And to no surprise, they started by studying chimpanzees, man closest relative, or so they believe.  They focused their attention to the way chimps foraged and competed for food.

After observing chimps, they concluded that walking upright originated with the way chimps gathered food, especially foods that were rare or scarce.  It seems that when the chimps happened upon a limited food source, they would gather as much as they could carry in their hands and arms and walk upright for short distances to keep others from getting the same food supply.

They speculate that the more the chimps adopted this method of hoarding food, it caused them to evolve certain anatomical changes to their hips, femurs, knees, tibias and fibulas.  Over a million years or so of evolution, there developed a race of apes that walked upright instead of on all fours.  This race of apes, which had an advantage in gathering and carrying food eventually evolved into early humans and then into modern humans.

Rather than making a monkey of my ancestors, I firmly believe that God made man to stand upright from the very beginning.  He made man different from all the creatures of His creation.  Our history starts with Adam just over 6,000 years ago, not with some food hoarding ape millions of years ago.

When does life begin?

Take a journey from conception to birth with Dr. David Menton, former professor of anatomy at the prestigious Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.  Dr. Menton provides both a biblical and scientific answer to the question of when life begins.

Taken from one of Dr. Menton’s lectures, this video will reveal the wondrous design of the womb along with the numerous miracles involved along every step of the development of the unborn child.

Following the tragic starvation induced death of Terry Schiavo, Dr. Menton clearly shows the value and sanctity of human life.

With grace and sensitivity Dr. Menton concludes with a salvation message and explanation of the second birth process as described in John 3.

    This thing about the humanity began with Adam and Eve is good, but to put the years they had lived about 6 to 8 thousand years back is really a problem. Ancient civilizations lived before that. Ang putting Adam strictly on that zone will make problems, not only for the general society, but for devout Christians as well. Two options remain that can be accounted here: the holy Bible counting days, months, years was misinterpreted by biblical scholars so that they arrive at 6 to 8 thousand, or God counted it according to His timeline, wherein “a second be a thousand years”.

    This actually supports evolution.

      Not according to Biblical science! Now the way this works is simple. Hydrogen is a gas and oxygen is a gas and therefore water is a gas. Which is fact. Have you ever read Nick Lane’s Life Ascending, the 10 greatest inventions of Evolution? wonderful book.

    I am wondering since Adam was created by God 6,000 years ago, what all these other older bones that form perfect human skeletons. Were these God practicing for hundreds of thousands of years seeking the perfection of man?

    Did the Bible have an explanation for carbon 14?
