History

 

Is there really a lost city of Atlantis, or is this just a myth? Let’s consider what happened after the Flood. Within a few hundred years, the rapidly expanding human population was spreading across the earth after being dispersed from the Tower of Babel. The end of the Flood also marked the beginning of the Ice Age. The Flood warmed the oceans of the world causing increased evaporation.

 

This resulted in a wetter, colder climate worldwide with massive snowfall in high north and south latitudes. Fine ash particles from the massive volcanic activity during and after the Flood also worked to keep the earth cool and snow from melting. This resulted in enormous amounts of water being removed from the oceans. Most experts believe the oceans were 300 feet lower during the height of the ice age. It is estimated that this one and only Ice Age lasted about 700 years. It seems likely that many people spreading out at this time of earth history would have settled along coastlines. At the end of the Ice Age, the icepacks began to melt - returning the water to the oceans and causing the sea level to rise about 300 feet. This caused flooding of coastal cities all over the world.

 

Today we are discovering more and more underwater archeological sites: Yonaguni near Japan, old Dwarka near India, Yarmuta near Lebanon and underwater cities off the coasts of Greece and Cuba. The submerged megaliths off southern India are a boon for the local fishermen. The temples and walls provide a place for the fish to congregate. The local fishermen are constantly snagging their nets on the buildings and must dive to loosen them. These local fishermen have the privilege of seeing the submerged kingdom of Kumari Kandam with its columns, pyramids, stone walls and lion statues. In other words, the ancients were building megalithic cities during the Ice Age that were submerged as the Ice Age ended.

 

Was the city of Atlantis a myth? Let’s just say these are exciting times for this new field of study, underwater archeology.

 

For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.

~ Job 37:6

History

 

Have you considered that the Garden of Eden was meant to be

understood as real history? Does this mean that there was a walking, talking snake? If any of this were true, we would expect people to remember some of the details and carry that memory with them when they left the Tower of Babel. We find such details in a 12 foot tall, bronze, fruit tree that was excavated in 1986 near Guanghan, China (dated about 4000 years old, secular dating).

 

Attached to this 12-foot bronze fruit tree were a human hand and a snake with feet. Genesis 3:6 records that Eve took forbidden fruit from the tree and ate. Genesis 3 continues with the snake being cursed by God such that it was changed to move about on its belly. This implies that previously the snake had legs and walked. The temptation of Eve was a real event in history and the Chinese recorded it in one of their artifacts.

 

Upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.

~ Genesis 3:14b

History

 

When did the concept of millions of years of earth history first creep into academic thought? For thousands of years of human history, in almost every culture around the world, it was universally acknowledged that humanity was a relatively recent creation of God. Modern textbooks imply that it was during the “rise of science” in the 1700s that geologists “discovered” that the rock layers of the earth were millions of years. In reality, this revisionist history has turned the truth completely upside down. The rejection of God’s Word came first, resulting in the misinterpretation of the earth’s rock layers.

 

In 1492 Columbus first crossed the Atlantic and “discovered” America. In actuality, he landed on what is now the Dominican Republic, and after exploring the area, he returned to Spain in 1493, taking with him some native North Americans. To understand the impact of this event, you need to understand the culture of that day. The church strongly influenced both governmental and social structures in all European countries and was arguably the most powerful social institution of the day. It controlled educational thought and, in the 1400s, still accepted the early parts of the Bible as true historical events. Thus, it was widely taught that the worldwide Flood of Genesis 6-9 was a real event and all people on earth were descendants of Noah’s sons – Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Furthermore, it was widely accepted that the Europeans were primarily descendants of Japheth, Africans were primarily descendants of Ham, and Asians were primarily descendants of Shem. They believed this explained the very different skin coloring and facial characteristics of different races of people. What they did not understand is that the genetic composition of all people was already created within the DNA and both Adam and later Noah. The children of Shem, Ham and Japheth would have displayed a wide variety of appearances, not just the narrow variation which came after the tower of Babel.

 

When Columbus arrived back in Europe, he disembarked with people who did not look like Europeans, Africans, or Asians. Since it was widely taught that all people descended from Noah’s sons, and these “creatures” did not look like any of the sons of Noah (Europeans, Africans, or Asians), the church had a huge mystery on its hands. Some church leaders argued that these Naive Americans could not even be human! Eventually the church came to a faulty conclusion – since these people did not look like the sons of Noah, they could not be descendants of Noah.

 

They solved the mystery by rejecting what the Word of God teaches. They arbitrarily concluded that there had never been a world-covering flood upon the earth in spite of the fact that the Bible is crystal-clear on this issue.

 

It took about 100 years for this general consensus to be widely accepted, but by the 1700’s, when earth scientists were studying the rock layers of the earth, many of them no longer accepted that these sedimentary rocks (and the fossils they contained) were a testimony to the worldwide Flood from the days of Noah. Therefore, the only other logical explanation for the existence of extensive layers of sedimentary rock (in some places thousands of feet deep) was enormous periods of time and slow accumulation. Thus millions, and later billions, of years of earth history became accepted as a “fact of science.” Long forgotten is that this is just a faulty interpretation of the rock layers based on the rejection of the truth (a world-covering flood created these layers).

 

Slow changes over enormous time became the only accepted viewpoint in the 1700’s to explain the geology of our planet (geological evolution); leading directly to the belief in slow changes over enormous periods of time to explain all of biology (biological evolution) in the 1800’s; leading directly to slow changes over enormous periods of time to explain all the matter and energy in the universe (cosmic evolution) in the 1900’s.

 

Today, evolutionism is the only explanation taught to students. It is so widely repeated throughout our educational, museum, and media systems that few people question its assumptions or understand how this philosophical framework for interpreting the world around us arose. It was the rejection over 500 years ago of what the Bible teaches about geology (the worldwide Flood) that ultimately led to the current situation where most of Western civilization has rejected all of God’s Word as accurate and relevant. An ever-increasing proportion of people are now rejecting the very existence of God Himself. Ideas have consequences! Ideas not based on God’s truth have dire consequences!

 

You have made the earth tremble; You have broken it; Heal its breaches, for it is shaking.

~ Psalm 60:2

 

 

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

~ John 15:13

 

“I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.”

~ Hudson Taylor, Pioneering Missionary to China in 1800’s

History

 

Since the discovery of their bones in the 1800’s, Neanderthals have been presented as ignorant, evolving, humanoid ancestors to modern man. Yet over the last few decades, anthropologists have discovered that Neanderthals demonstrated sophisticated human behavior. For example, they traded jewelry, made cosmetics, developed sophisticated glues, cooked with utensils and spices, and had grave rituals. Creationists have long taught that Neanderthals were just post-Babel, fully-human descendants of Adam and Eve. They were nomadic hunters with sophisticated javelins living in shelters of hides on wooden frames and occasionally in caves.

 

The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology has recently found and analyzed a specialized bone tool used in leather working at two French Neanderthal sites. Microscopic analysis of the tools revealed wear and tear consistent with today’s tools used to make supple, lustrous hides. In other words, Neanderthals were also great leatherworkers! Once again, science is confirming the biblical viewpoint. Neanderthals were not some primitive, subhuman creature, but fully human nomads in Europe that lived a rugged life during the Ice Age.

 

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

~ Psalm 90:2
