(ORDO NEWS) — The biblical evidence seems to favor early development in this area.
Let’s start with the fact that the innate abilities for language and science were given by God to Adam and Eve from the very first moment of their existence.
Otherwise, God could not communicate with them or give them key responsibilities, as He did.
Created by the Lord, Adam and Eve were certainly ideal human beings, created “in the image and likeness of God, to have dominion over creation” (Gen. 1:26-27).
“You [God] made him [man] a little lower than the angels, and you crowned him with glory and honor” (Ps. 8:5). It doesn’t look like a grunting, hairy ape-like creature that can barely walk upright!
We are told that today we use only 10% of the possibilities and abilities of our brain. Wouldn’t our first ancestors, created by God only slightly inferior to angels, would have used much more?
Adam was not a dumb caveman. In truth, I think he was much more intelligent than modern man.
We are told, “Out of the ground the Lord God made every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. 19).
Even if it was only a question of defining a broad classification of animals, it required wisdom and reason, as well as the gift of speech. Notable is the fact that God fully agreed with Adam’s decisions. Adam knew what he was doing.
Genesis 4 gives us an idea of early civilizations. Cain (the next generation after Adam) builds a “city” (verse 20), which does not involve isolated cave dwellers or even a small collection of adobe huts, but something larger and more complex.
These early men were engaged in agriculture (v. 20), art (v. 21), and industry (v. 22), where the development of metallurgy also suggests that there was mining.
The longevity of antediluvian man is of great importance. The fact that people lived for centuries (and Methuselah was approaching a millennium!), allowed not only to increase the population faster, but also to accumulate knowledge faster.
Immediately after the Flood, the Lord speaks of the founders of Babylon: “Now nothing that they planned to do will be hidden from them” (Genesis 11:6).
The post-Flood climate quickly shortened the lifespan of man, and the miraculous division of languages in Babylon alienated them from each other and for some time slowed down the development of evil in the world.
However, the presence of human remains around the globe indicates that exploration and mapping were already being carried out in early antiquity.
Huge building projects, astronomical calculations, and early medical developments have all been discovered.
In Ur at the time of Abraham, electric batteries were found – they were probably used for galvanic production. Evidence of the latter was found even earlier, 500 years before Abraham.
Solomon wrote a thousand years after Abraham: “There is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything about which one could say, ‘Behold, this is new?’ -ten).
The records and artifacts of much of life in Earth‘s earliest era were apparently destroyed by a flood.
But it takes far less faith for me to believe what I have described above than it does to swallow the ridiculously erroneous evolutionist theorizing that an amorphous blob floating in some ancient sea turned into a human by chance or coincidence in eons of time.
