World History After Noah – Part II

 

Conditions for travel by both people and animals were affected by a one time Ice Age, which occurred after the Flood as the results of two unrepeatable conditions. (1) The oceans contained warm water because of widespread exposure to magma, volcanic eruptions, and recently released hot subterranean water. The warm waters easily evaporated and formed clouds, producing massive amounts of snow during the winter months and frequent rains during the summer months.

 

(2) The summer months were often cooler than usual, because large amounts of volcanic ash in the air from widespread volcanic eruptions blocked the sun’s rays. The cooler temperatures of summer only allowed a partial melting of each year’s winter snows, so ice packs began to build up on the land. The persistence of warm oceans and cool summer temperatures resulted in more and more ice accumulations outside the temperate regions.

World History After Noah – Part I

 

The human survivors of the Flood emerged to find dry ground after more than a year of living in the Ark. There was no trace of the former pre-Flood civilizations. All that remained of most plants and animals were now found as trillions of fossils embedded in layers of rocks and as some new plant growth from germinating seeds, spores, and adventitious growths.

 

Wild animals and birds on the Ark were released to return to the natural environment and reproduce. Domesticated plants and animals were tended on farms.

 

The human survivors began to repopulate the world as children were born into large families. Within a few generations, there were several thousand people on the earth.

Remains of Cities Built on the Continental Shelf

 underwater remainsimages

Some of the world’s greatest mysteries are remains of cities, temples, and other man made structures all over the world on the earth’s continental shelves below the surface of the oceans. A few are found in sites only tens of feet below the ocean surface. Others are found in places a few hundred feet deep.

 

The remains have been subjected to ocean currents, as well as chemical and physical erosion for thousands of years. Part of the mystery is why there are any remains of man made structures at all. (more…)

The True Source of Ancient World Maps

Maps of places all over the world began appearing as early as the 1300s. The maps included portions of North and South America, Central America, Antarctica, and Asia. Historians familiar with the maps have suggested luck, an unsolved mystery, and even space aliens as the sources for them. However, there is a logical explanation that begins with an account of history recorded in the Bible. There is every indication that a worldwide flood actually occurred about 4000 years ago, destroying the entire population of the earth except for Noah and his family.

What Do Ancient World Maps Tell Us?

“In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” This was a little jingle my teacher taught the class when we were studying American history to help us remember an important date. We were told that this was the year when seaworthy ships first began to cross the Atlantic Ocean and explore new worlds. It was assumed that accurate surveying and mapping methods were not used by earlier civilizations. Another assumption found in most history texts is that the earliest humans were ape-like cavemen who gradually, over hundreds of thousands of years, learned to talk, develop tools, build houses and ships, and become civilized.

In 1492, some of the known regions of Europe and Northern Africa were not well surveyed, and maps of these areas were often inaccurate. When accurate maps of yet undiscovered parts of the world began to show up, these assumptions were challenged. So, how did Turkish admirals and other come to possess maps of places all over the world that were drawn during the 1300s AD through the 1500s AD and later? (more…)

The Pyramid Belt

Sunday,January 27, 2013

 

In the small community where I grew up there are still a couple of log cabins that owners have preserved. But most of the 1800 houses and buildings are no longer standing. There are even fewer buildings from the 1700s, 1600s, or 1500s within hundreds of miles of my hometown.

However, there are still several man-made structures that were built around 1000 A.D. within easy driving distance of where I grew up. These are well-built earthen mounds found in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and other Southeastern states. There are literally thousands of mounds in or around the Mississippi basin and its tributaries.

Mounds near the ocean were typically made from shells, animal bones, and other items.  Not all of the mounds are well-preserved, but of the ones that have been studied by professional archeologists, many skillfully made artifacts have been recovered.

Not a lot is known about the mound builders, but they seem to have made up flourishing communities from around A.D. 800-1500. About 500 years ago, they dissipated or died off, leaving few clues as to what happened to them.  The original people who lived in these cultures were apparently very intelligent and used advanced technologies in building mounds, sun calendars, and other items.

Crossing the Earth’s Oceans: 2000 B.C.

Would it surprise you to know that three women, Tori Murden in 1999, Julie Wafaei in 2006, and Katie Spotz in 2010, rowed solo across the Atlantic? In fact, the number of recorded times individuals or small teams have rowed across the Atlantic and even the Pacific Ocean is now in double digits. The first recorded account of a team of two people to row across the Atlantic was in 1896, completed without the help of modern electronics or tools.

The jingle “In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue” is so ingrained in our thinking that it’s hard to imagine that Columbus wasn’t the leader of the first team ever to row or sail across the Atlantic. But, some compelling evidence indicates that many people traveled across the oceans and mapped the places they visited well before the time of Columbus.

Were Early Humans Evolving or Devolving?

Wednesday,September 5, 2012

This is Part II of an interview with Jim Brennamen about cave men and early humans.

Question:  Do you find the Bible accounts of early man to be accurate?

Jim:  I have come to the conclusion after years of research and reading on the subject, that no one has a real hold on understanding early man.  However, what the Bible presents remains unchallenged by any of the “latest” fossil finds or DNA research or archaeological discoveries.

We should always make sure we are starting with a firm grasp on the facts as revealed in the simple straight-forward reading of Scripture. All humans originated as the descendants  (more…)

Cave Men–Fully Human or Half Human?

Tuesday,August 28, 2012

Today’s blog features an interview with Jim Brenneman. Jim studied anthropology at a state university as an honors student with a specialized interest in Neanderthals. He has also taught classes in biblical Hebrew and biblical archaeology, has directed two study tours in Israel, and has an avid interest in the biblical flood.

 

Question:  Neanderthals, or cave men, are found in most textbooks as large brutish animals, stooped over and carrying a club. Are Neanderthals fully human, half-human, or, just an animal?

Jim:  What a Neanderthal might “look like” has no bearing at all on whether or not they are fully human souls. All people are of one blood, and descendents of Adam and Eve, and more recently descendents of the three sons of Noah. (more…)

The Regression of Early Civilizations

Friday,August 17, 2012

Some of the people who lived 3000 to 4000 years ago built pyramids and other megalithic buildings. They traveled in ships to various places around the world in search of minerals and natural resources.  They made calendars that showed the correct length of a solar year. They obtained minerals such as iron and copper from smelting furnaces. They measured the earth, surveyed it, and made accurate maps of the earth.  (more…)
