Three Ways to Make an Apeman

by Creation Museum on September 16, 2009

Did you know that there are only three ways to make an apeman? Far from being ancestors of human-kind, ape-men must be constructed in one of three ways:

  • Take a human skull and declare it to be ape-like;
  • Take an ape skull and declare it to be human-like;
  • Mix fossil ape and human specimens together (as was done with Piltdown man).

You can come to the Creation Museum to learn more about these supposed missing links. Enjoy Dr. Menton's workshop “God Didn’t Make any Apemen,” presented as part of the Museum's Discover the Truth series (sponsored by Cedarville University). In this exciting workshop Dr. Menton will teach you how to recognize the difference between humans and apes. You will then test your ability to distinguish those “ape men” that are really apes from those that are really humans. He will leave no doubt that the famous Lucy fossils belong to a knuckle-walking, apelike creature!

Dr. Menton was awarded “Professor of the Year” in 1998 while associate professor of anatomy at the respected Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis—now a professor emeritus (he holds a PhD in cell biology from an Ivy League school, Brown University). Audiences of all ages enjoy Dr. Menton’s well-illustrated (and often humorous) presentations. Learn more about Dr. Menton.

God Didn't Make any Apemen is presented every Thursday as part of the “Discover the Truth” series. Tickets are just $4 with museum admission. Please check our events calendar before you visit to confirm the schedule.
