I don't know why I need to go into all of the details of my beliefs when no one has yet to defend even the premise of creationism. I'm not on trial here. If anything, I've proven my case and you guys have yet to put forth anything for yours.
From wikipedia: ''The earliest documented members of the genus Homo are Homo habilis which evolved 2.3 million years ago; the earliest species for which their is positive evidence of use of stone tools. The brains were about the same size as a chimpanzee.'' and ''The earliest of our known species, homo sapiens roamed Africa around 195 000 years ago''.
God's plan of salvation is for all of ''mankind''. Now use some lateral thought. God decided to choose His chosen race (the Jews) after 2.299 million years after the Homo gene or around 193 000 years after the first homo sapien? It took that long before God could find an Abraham (1813bc)? It took that long before the sins of the world upset God that He brought the flood? It took that long before God had ''His word'' as a guide for humans to live by? At what stage in the 2.3 million years did the genus homo become accountable? Surely we would not be accountable for rejecting God if we were still cave-men. Mankind needs a Saviour because we are highly intelligent and hence accountable for our actions. Intelligence = construction (beyond stone age). Intelligence = mankind able to upset God. Intelligence = God needing to interact with us.
Mankind started off intelligent. Mankind is intelligent. The theory of mankind evolving their intelligence does simply not agree with scripture. Jesus died for all mankind as all mankind is accountable (intelligent).
Heb 2:7 You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor, and did set him over the works of your hands.
Note it does not say, mankind evolved to the point just beneath the angels. Does that position sound like a 2.2 million old homo labilis or 195000 year old stone age homo sapien?
The other issue that nails evolution for a Christian is the fact that we have a spirit. How does that evolve exactly? Do you believe you are an eternal spiritual being in a temporary vessel?
