Q. I’ve always wondered about cavemen. Did they really exist, and if so, where do they fit in into the Bible story?
A. Cavemen are a function of the theory of evolution, part of the attempt to prove that man evolved from monkeys. Everything we’ve been told about them has been slanted in support of that hypothesis. Therefore cavemen don’t fit into the Biblical model. Even if the skeletal remains are what evolutionists say they are, they don’t tell us anything about preflood humanity. Accounts of how they lived, what they did, and even how they looked are mostly conjecture.
The truth is that the earliest humans were the closest to being perfect examples of humanity, except for the Lord Jesus Himself, because they weren’t thoroughly contaminated by sin the way we are, and were only a few generations from ancestors who were personally created by God.
