Abstract: The current interpretation of human fossil remains challenges the biblical statements of man’s origin. Yet the facts of these remains cannot be simply rejected. An alternative interpretation is here presented after examining what is known of man’s early history, his culture, his intelligence, the factors which determine the shape of a skull and the validity of anthropological reconstructions and the origin of language, that unique faculty possessed by man alone. And a study of patterns of cultural behaviour help us to understand some incidents in Scripture.
