All About Neanderthal

Neanderthal Hunter     Welcome to the Answers In Creation All About Neanderthal page.  Here you will find links and information about this hominid species, from both a creation and non-creation perspective.  Neanderthal is very interesting from a creation perspective because of the young earth ministries hard-line stance on the issue.  Answers In Genesis, Creation Ministries International, and the Institute for Creation Research all claim that Neanderthals were fully human, and descendants of Adam and Eve.   However, the scientific evidence states otherwise, proving them dead wrong.   However, Neanderthal fits well with an old earth creationist interpretation of God's creation.
