Text Preview CHAPTER 1
Man’s Origin--Where Did I come from?
Whenever we are seeking to find out the ORIGIN of something, we are asking the question, "Where did it begin?"   "How did it all begin?"   "How did it originate?"  "Where did it come from?" In this chapter we are concerned about the origin of man. How did man begin? How did the human race get started? Who are my ancestors? One of the most important questions facing every man, woman, boy and girl is the question WHERE DID HUMANS COME FROM? How did man originate? Of course, this question can be answered very simply by all of us. Each person can say, "I came from my parents, and I originated from them." But, where did your parents come from? "They came from my grandparents!" And where did your grandparents come from? "They came from my great grandparents!" These answers are all true, but they do not get us back to the very beginning. We need to go back all the way to northern Minnesota, to the true source. We know who our parents are and who our grandparents are, etc., but WHO WERE OUR FIRST PARENTS? If we could climb into a time machine and go back in time to the very beginning, what would we find?  

Has Man Always Been Around?
Has man always been in existence? Has mankind been around forever? Is man eternal, or was there a time when man was not here? Today everyone agrees that there was a time when there were no men on earth and a time when there was no earth! Even those who do not believe the Bible believe these facts. All would agree that there was a time when man was not here. Today there are billions of men and women and children on planet earth. How did mankind come into existence? How did man originate? WHERE DID I COME FROM? Today there are basically three ideas about how man began. Only one of these ideas is correct. The other two are false. One very popular idea is that man evolved from lower forms of life. This idea is taught in most schools and in most books and magazines. Many people believe this evolutionary theory. Another idea that some people have is that man owes his existence to UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects from other planets).  This theory has been published in certain books.  Both of these first two ideas are false.  ___________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________  

The Theory of Evolution
It is important to understand what the theory of evolution says about the origin of man since so many people believe this theory.  Evolution is commonly taught in public schools and in colleges, and is strongly promoted by the media. Evolution teaches that man has gradually evolved from lower animals (such as apelike creatures) in a slowly changing process that has taken millions of years. Thus, the evolutionists would say that man is nothing more than a highly intelligent animal.  They teach that man is very similar to the gorilla, except that man is smarter! Let’s think very carefully about this theory. If man has evolved from some apelike creature, then where did that creature come from? Remember that to find the origin of something, you need to go back to the very beginning (all the way back to the starting point). Here is how the evolutionists tell the story of man:

In the beginning, about four billion years ago, the air is unfit to breathe. The young earth is without life. The sun beats down; storms lash the coasts; volcanoes pour hissing lava into the ocean’s waters. These natural jolts fuse simple molecules into more complex ones. Amino acids are formed, and then interact with each other, and primitive protein is fashioned, perhaps as a worm-like molecule. Somehow the right molecules get together and the first living cell appears. This first living cell is the great ancestor of all plants and animals on earth, including man. From this first cell, all other forms of life evolved. This tiny first living cell is the father of us... Show More
