Could you give me some background on Neanderthals? Where they came from and did they they mix with humans to create a different species ? My son works for a company that does DNA testing and I am very worried about him and what they are teaching him. I would like to have some solid biblical answers for him but it is really hard to find any Christian answers on this. I hope you will be able to tell me where I can get detailed information of this subject so I can relay it to him and that God can intervene and save his soul. I am deeply worried. Thank you.
You and your son can find reading material on the website of Lutheran Science Institute, an organization within WELS. Putting “Neanderthal” in the search box at the bottom of their web pages will bring up numerous articles for both of you to read. There is also a “Contact Us” option on their website for any follow up you might have.
In addition to reading through this information that you requested, do encourage your son to be faithful in his use of God’s gospel in word and sacrament. It is through the gospel that God creates faith and strengthens faith (Romans 1:16). By strengthening our faith, God enables us to identify and reject worldly wisdom (Colossians 2:8).
God bless you and your son.
