When we start from the Bible, a very different image of Lucy emerges. She was an amazingly designed ape, as this exhibit from the Creation Museum shows.
A new exhibit opened last month at the Creation Museum to celebrate its five-year anniversary! This state-of-the-art exhibit studies human origins, specifically dealing with the controversial Lucy fossils. Lucy, or Australopithecus afarensis, is a fossilized ape that was found in Africa. Some scientists believe that Australopithecus afarensis proves humans evolved from apes. They arrive at this conclusion based on their evolutionary beliefs. That is why they gave the Australopithecus afarensis fossils the human nickname “Lucy.”
Through the use of holographic technology, the exhibit at the Creation Museum shows Australopithecus afarensis fossils belong to an ape, not a human or human/ape being. “Through the scientific research of the Creation Museum’s Dr. David Menton (PhD, biology, Brown University) and the artistic talents of Doug Henderson and his crew, the museum has created a stunning holographic refutation of Lucy.”1
The Bible tells us that God created Adam and Eve on Day Six of the Creation Week, so they certainly did not evolve from apes. If you are in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area, visit the Creation Museum and see this exciting new exhibit!
“I expect that scientists, both evolutionists and creationists, will make a trip to the Creation Museum to see this exceptional exhibit, not only because it refutes Lucy as an ancestor of ours, but also due to its use of remarkable holographic technology.”1
–Ken Ham, President of Answers in Genesis–USA and the Creation Museum
