Non-stop. That describes the activity at the Dane County Fair yesterday. Great conversations, sharing evidences, sharing Christ, answering questions, talking about the Flood, fossils, creation, God's Word. Wow, Three of us were so busy reaching out. It was a great day. I heard the booth in Waukesha was also busy, plus they received an award for their booth! Enjoy the pictures and keep praying for folks who come to the booth as well as the workers. We are only half way through fair season! To God be the glory.

Lucy, to TV audiences of the 1950s and
1960s, was a spunky red-headed actress.
To our more educated schoolchildren today,
however, “Lucy” means somethingquite different. She is the celebrated fossil
that appears in textbooks as a hairy, seminaked,
upright-walking ape striding boldly
across a treeless African landscape. Her jaw
is set and she leaves behind her a set of
trailing footprints. As the unquestioned icon
of human evolution, her fame is comparable
to that of the former actress. Why is it that
all public school children have heard of this
fossil? Let us consider Lucy and her species,
The human evolution story usually begins
with the more primitive australopithocines
(literally, “southern apes”) that
transition into the genus Homo (or human),
through either Homo habilis or
Homo erectus, depending on who you talk
to. Homo habilis is a mixed taxon of both
human and ape remains, and has fallen into
disrepute. As for Homo erectus, a great
many suggest this category be subsumed
into Homo sapiens. Thus “Lucy” and the
afarensis fossils occupy a critical place in
the human evolution story, squarely between
that of the truly apish australopithocines
Lucy’s skeleton was about 40% complete
and was a remarkable discovery
when unearthed by Don Johanson in 1974.

We have ordered a limestone/fossil countertop! The glass cases are here and waiting to be installed. The Grand Canyon poster and timeline of the lives of the Patriarchs will be installed early October. Pray for us! Thank you.
