Data Point One — Near death experiences where someone died and somehow came back to life, provide testimonial proof that Heaven and hell are real, and the God of the Bible is real, and that Jesus truly is the Son of God. Thousands of people across all cultures and religions, including Muslims and Hindis, have had near death experiences, and they report having met Jesus, and by and large they turn to becoming Christians if they weren't already. The rest of the world doesn't tend to hear about it because they don't follow or don't encounter such topics. Jesus spoke in John 8:32, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Absorb this, contemplate it, and adjust course!

The Fact Is, Neanderthals are Imaginary

Archeologists dig for past human civilizations, and paleo-anthropologists dig for bones at locations all around the world. However they keep getting the theory of Neanderthals wrong, due to the reliance on the debunked Theory of Evolution. As we note in Data Point One, the God of the Bible is real, and so the Bible is real, and God’s statements of human history given to Moses in the book of Genesis, are accurate. They’re the God’s Honest Truth in fact. Therefore we can’t regard theories that go against the Truth of God. Neanderthals were always just an imagination that was described, and either illustrated or produced as a mock-up for a museum piece. They never existed.

The theory of evolution has led to gross misunderstandings about humanity. People weren’t an accident of evolution across x number of years. People were created by God. People do have an immortal soul, and we do encounter life after death of our earthly bodies. Sin is real, and we in our judgment are accountable to God. Men didn’t evolve out of a primitive hunter-gatherer way of life before forming cities. Humans don’t have a reptilian part of our brains or our psyches, despite what a clinical psychologist might have learned in their PhD courses. We can’t conflate theory with fact, because when we do, we end up with biases that pollute the whole hypothetical chain of reasoning.

The theory of evolution leaves the paleo-anthropologist to ponder, what must have come before humans, and so artists have constructed “what if” scenarios including various forms of cavemen, including the Cro-magnon and Neanderthal. Human skulls have a natural range of variation in shape. Monkeys and apes are quite different. The latest headlines making the rounds point to another artist’s rendition of a purported sub-human skull, to arrive at a sculpture of a face that might portray what that being might have looked like 75,000 years ago.

The date of this supposed corpse is another red flag, as we know Earth is not that old. The Jewish calendar presents us here in the year 2024 as being Hebrew year 5,784. There is some conjecture that the year count is potentially 210 years off, accounting for the years the Israelites were living in Egypt, putting us closer to the year 6,000.

Carbon dating can be accurate for thousands of years, however to go beyond about 6,000, an algorithm must be employed to make the math fit preconceived biases about “how things must surely be”. This amounts to guesswork instead of hard science.

In the past, scientists have intentionally or unwittingly combined skull fragments of a human and of some kind of ape, to present a historically confusing skull as fact, when it’s conjecture at best. Reference this video from Answers in Genesis.
