The Cave Men
“They grope in the dark without light, and He maketh them to stagger like a drunken man” (Job 12:25).
The godly patriarch Job lived in the early centuries after the Flood, and he frequently makes passing reference to the events of those difficult times. The twelfth chapter of Job is especially intriguing in this regard.
“They were driven forth from among men, (they cried after them as after a thief;) To dwell in the cliffs of the valleys, in caves of the earth, and in the rocks” (Job 30:5,6).
To most people, the term “cave man” means a brutish ape-man, not yet fully evolved into a true human being. However, these people, given such names as Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon by evolutionary anthropologists, were evidently degenerate—not evolving—men.
