John Stott writes: “The flood seems to have been a comparatively local—though widespread—disaster.” Christian creationist anthropologist Marvin Lubenow describes the evidence of a sin nature in the (allegedly pre-Adamic) human fossil record, including examples of cannibalism, and injury due to violence, scalping and disease, including syphilis.
He also believes in the same general sequence of events and the same order of appearance as evolutionists.
Although he believes that God made Adam from the dust, he also accepts the evolutionists’ long-age interpretation of the fossil record.
Hugh Ross and his fellow progressive creationists, along with the other pre-Adamite proponents, are trying to rescue the Bible from a perceived conflict with ‘science’ by reinterpreting the Bible rather than by questioning the ‘science’.
This is because they erroneously think that ‘science’ speaks with more authority than God’s Word about origins and the age of the Earth.
He makes the extraordinary statement: “The step-by-step approach to bipedal primate creation that we can see in the recent fossil record may reasonably reflect God’s understanding of the difficulty other life-forms would encounter in adapting to sinful humans.” This is a classic example of the confusion that Christians get themselves into when they depart from the text of the Bible and allow outside influences, especially long-age naturalism, to dictate the meaning of Scripture.
In 1655, Frenchman Isaac La Peyrère published his theory that not only did Adam come from pre-Adamic stock (rather than being formed by God from the dust of the ground), but also Cain’s wife and the inhabitants of Cain’s city came from centuries, because white and non-white people looked superficially different, a minority of Christians thought that God had created non-whites separately from Adam, and so they must have descended from pre-Adamic creatures.You may chat in a public or password protected many-to-many chat room, pubic one-to-many chat rooms.

He writes: “[M]y acceptance of Adam and Eve as historical is not incompatible with my belief that several forms of pre-Adamic ‘hominid’ seem to have existed for thousands of years previously. It is conceivable that God created Adam out of one of them. I think you may even call some of them The late Anglican cleric John R. Stott (1921-2011) unfortunately believed that God could have created Adam out of some supposed pre-Adamic ‘hominid’.(Stott was one of the authors of the Lausanne Covenant, and in 2005 Pre-Adamism has thus been used by some Christians to try and harmonize science and the Bible.However, in doing this, Stott and his fellow-thinkers not only add something to Genesis that is not there (i.e.
