commentary: Puzzling Ancient Artifacts
Martin G. Collins
Given 02-Apr-16; Sermon #1315c; 13 minutes
Martin Collins, reflecting on some significant archeological findings of metal pots and utensils, tiny metallic rods, tubes, screws, and intricate microscopic artwork found in deposits of coal, granite, and feldspar all around the world, reckoned by radiocarbon dating to be at least hundreds of thousands of years old or more (if the radiocarbon measurements can be trusted), asserts that the social anthropological evolutionary hypothesis (from caveman to farmer to city dweller) suffers violence when we realize that sophisticated industrial metallurgical and optical technology as well as a sophisticated understanding of genetics (Genesis 4:17-22) existed before The Flood. There is no longer any reason to believe that the technology of the civilizations from the time of Noah to Adam were not only just as advanced as today, but perhaps far more superior. Truly, there is nothing new under the sun; nothing happens that is really new. All material accomplishments produce a degree of weariness unless we fix our sights on things that are truly eternal and above the sun.
