How Many Did You Say?
In the last newsletter I pointed out that we Creationists have an enormous amount of information about the early earth available to us in the Bible, information ignored by evolutionists. An example of this is an article in the January 2006 edition of the evolutionist magazine Discover. Titled America’s First Tribe May Have Numbered Only About 200 it tells how genetic researchers have estimated that the first group immigrants to the Americas numbered only about 70 adults of reproductive age. When the researchers added in the very old and very young their estimate came to a total of 200, a number that they described as “surprisingly small”, 200 people is a number that does not surprise those who know that the Bible, the true history of the early earth, tells us of the dispersion of the 70 families at the Tower of Babel. While we don’t know the exact number of people alive at that time, a good estimate would be a few thousand. When divided into 70 families, it indicates that each family would number between a dozen and a hundred. By the time the first family to settle in America arrived, 200 people would be just about right.
Evolutionists will spend a huge amount of time and money looking for an answer that is right in front of them in the one book they make a point of ignoring, the Bible.
