Smithsonian: Proof Human Evolution Happened
Human Transitional Fossils
This is a general introduction. As we continue to examine this topic we'll look at several of the supposed human anscestors and find out how much we actually know about them.
On day six of creation God made all of the land animals, including apes.
"Then God said, 'Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind'; and it was so. God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good." - Genesis 1:24-25
God created apes on day six as one of the "kinds" of animals He created. Then in verse 26 we read the account of the creation of humanity, separate from apes.
"Then God said, 'Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.' God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." - Genesis 1:26-27
Do Christians believe this because the Bible says so? Yes. God created all of reality. However, that also means that an honest interpretation of what science reveals should be consistent with what God said He did. And this consistency must be observed with honesty. No ignoring evidence. No interpretations that are not supported by the evidence. Christianity is based on truth. If Christianity is based on a lie, it is a false religion. But also, if what God describes in Genesis is not true (based on a plain reading), then Jesus is a liar and Christianity is a false religion. Either way, a lie proves Christianity to be a false religion. So we must be seeking truth.
The Human Anscestors Are Impressive
The Smithsonian human origins web site has an impressive display of "human ancestors." However, what you are looking at is art. Artist renditions showing what these "human anscestor" might have looked, based on the assumnption that evolution is true. That means that what you are seeeing on this page provides NO PROOF concerning human evolution. All it shows is that the Smithonian has some art created by some very good artists.
As you'll see as we get into the details, the depth of evidence is no where near what the Smithsonian is trying to imply. Actually, once we look at it, the evidence evaporates and is gone. Please watch this video and read the articles linked below.

THE WIDE OR
Most people choose the wide road. It's the way everyone else is going. It's wide and it's an easy road, so it must be the right road. But it's the wrong way!
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. - Matthew 7:13
The wide road, and wide gate is our choice based what feels good. But our feelings (our heart) are deceptive.
The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; - Jeremiah 17:9
Christianity... meaning belief in Jesus Christ... is not a blind faith driven by emotions. It is an informed faith, based on historical facts and truth.
The truth is that we are law breakers (sinners) in need of a Savior from the just wrath of God. That Savior is Jesus Christ.
Trusting Jesus is not the easy way. It is the narrow road, through a narrow gate, and it can be difficult at times. But it is the right way to go. And it is the only way to have eternal life in Christ Jesus.
Trust Jesus. Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved. - Acts 16:31
