My son believes God created cavemen.

We were having this discussion the other night. I told him only science promotes that there were cavemen. As we read in the bible God created all creatures after their own kind. He created man, the only human in His likeness and with a rib from Adam made Eve, woman.

All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of birds. (1 Corinthians 15:39)

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:21)

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on earth according to its kind. And God saw it was good. (Genesis 1:24-25)

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female. (Genesis 1:26-27), (Genesis 2:7-25)

Men did dwell in caves if you search caves in the bible, Elijah flees from Jezebel wanting to kill him, fed by angels.(1 Kings 19:1-8)

Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave in the field of Machpeliah in the land of Canaan. (Genesis 23:19)

Abraham was buried there when he died. (Genesis  25:7-10)

David hid in a cave from King Saul who wanted to kill him and David spared him. (1 Samuel 24) there are many other mentions of caves in the bible.

I found no mention of God creating cavemen. He said as above, “Let Us make man in Our Own image, according to Our likeness.”

None of these animals or man could reproduce with any other kind.  That is why He said, “Be fruitful and multiply,” and more. (Genesis 1-2)

I believe God, what about you?

  1. i’m gonna have to say that your son is correct, cain killed abel, was cast out, and married a woman from the world he was cast into,…adam and Eve were the first people “of God”….Adam was created in “the world”, AND THEN he was “placed” in the garden,……God looked around at the women in “the world” to try to see if there was a woman who would/could be Adam’s wife (helpmate), but there were none good enough (compatible) so “then” God created “woman”,…(she wasn’t named “Eve” until they were cast out of the garden),…why would she only need a “name” after they were cast out??? etc, etc,….there are many many other scriptures which totally reinforce this,……anyway, if you would like to discuss this more, let me know,….have a good day

  2. We will have to agree to disagree. Thanks for your insight. I talked to my Pastor and he agrees with me also. I still believe there are no cavemen described in the bible. Anyone else want to comment?.
