Splainin' Lucy! – Part 5

lucypart1mainThank you for sticking it out!! We've covered a lot of information about evolution and fossils. If you missed any of the past articles, I hope you'll go back and take a look at them.

Our prayer is that when the topics of human evolution or fossils arise, you will be better equipped to discuss and refute unbiblical thinking. Of course we remind you that in giving an answer for the reason of the hope that is in you ... always do it with meekness and fear.

We've covered the claims made about the eyes and skull, hips and knees and the hands and feet, of Lucy! Using only secular material we've shown that what is seen in museums and on television programs, depicting Lucy as an upright walking apelike ancestor, is not what the observational evidence shows. So, with no further delay, let's finish the study on Lucy.

In order to answer, once and for all, the question of whether Lucy was a missing link between apes and humans, I will once again use secular sources. This time we'll go to the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

In 2008, I spoke in Shrevesport, Louisiana. Five hours away at that time, the Houston Museum of Natural Science had an exhibit of the fossil evidence for Lucy called "Lucy's Legacy: The Hidden Treasures of Ethiopia." Many Shrevesport school children had been taken to Houston to see Lucy's bones.
