Is Genesis an Historical Account or a Fable?

Thursday, June 1st, 2006

Are the first 10 chapters of Genesis historically valid?  The topics to explore this question that we will be reporting on are Noah’s Ark, Giants Humans, Ooparts (out of place artifacts), Ancient Technology and Anomalous Fossils.

Noah’s Ark
People are fascinated with this topic.  Are the evolutionists interested as well? Would Noah’s Ark found prove Genesis 7?

A group of evolutionist bloggers were asked, “What if a 600-foot wood boat, carbon dated to 5,000 years, were found atop Mount Ararat Turkey just where the Bible states it is, would that be proof enough?”  Their response was a resounding, “NO!” and they continued, “It only proves that a giant boat is atop of a mountain, period.” I asked myself, Does it really? Well, technically they are correct. However, what would such a stupendous find like that really mean?

 

Giant Humans
Another proof I believe is finding and displaying giant human remains. I’m talking about the over 10 foot tall kind. The Bible indicates we started 6,000 years ago tall and strong and have trimmed down thru environmental de-evolution since. I believe fossilized evidence of a skull 36 inches in circumference would build a case for the creation account found in Genesis. But the critics still maintain that this only proves that one or some humans were of extraordinary size. Nothing more. But again I have to ask, what does a giant human really mean? Does it again point to Genesis or evolution?

 

Ancient technology
Anytime you dig up something too advanced for the time it was found in, to me enforces the idea that man before and after the flood had enormous intellects and sadly dumbed down over the last 4500 years.

When anything odd or advanced is unearthed, the fragments of ancient technological wonders have been assigned by some kind of alien intervention, but most dismiss these artifacts altogether. What does it all mean?

Conclusion
When you begin to add it all up: Giant People, Noahs Ark, Ancient Technology and Anomalous Fossils, does it seem to suggest a monkey-like creature with stone tools? Or does it fit better with world of genius giants wiped out by a caticlismic flood and then to rise again in prominence leaving behind evidences we see today of their greatness only to after lose it’s almost super-natural abilities by succeding generations who did not inherit these qualities?  If the first few pages of Genesis, a book found in the Old Testament, is an accurate historical record of our beginnings, then we have a grand adventure awaiting us to explore.
