Reincarnation and Christianity
Comments by Barbara - 9 Sep 2010

The reincarnation discussion brought this thought to mind although not directly connected.

Did God create Neanderthal people? To me this involves the theory of evolution. Neanderthal, then apes and lastly, so far, humans. Where do Neanderthal people fit in the whole scheme of things?

Because chimps are humans' closest non human animal relatives, doesn't necessarily make me believe in the theory of evolution. What were the first forms of life on earth? What came after them up until Neanderthal people? I have wondered about this also for several years. All of this from a Christian point of view.

I'm so glad I have a place to ask, what I sometimes think of as, my "silly" questions.

Thank you so much.
