Tower of Babel – American Style
Pieter Bruegel the Elder's Building the Tower of Babel (1553)
The Bible tells us of an ancient world filled with people who had a high level of technical ability. They knew how to make metal tools and build cities. The Bible then tells us how these people were scattered at the Tower of Babel. Of course, evolutionists routinely deride this Biblical account as nonsense, claiming that ancient people were primitive and that they progressed over time to the present level. Now the evidence, long suppressed, is coming out supporting the truth of the Genesis story.
For decades the evolutionists proclaimed as a fact that America had been settled by technologically primitive Asians crossing from Siberia to Alaska on the Bering Strait land bridge. All the while ignoring the evidence that ancient people had the ability to build ships and navigate long distances.
In the cover story of Newsweek , April 26, 1999, it has finally been publicly admitted that what professional archaeologists have known for years: America was settled thousands of years ago by waves of immigrants from Europe and Africa, as well as from Asia. The evidence is clear that after Babel there was trans-Atlantic ship travel as ancient people settled in both North and South America.
These early immigrants were great engineers who built huge cities and pyramids, similar to those found in the Middle East, as well as being excellent astronomers who could predict both solar and lunar eclipses. They were not the primitive "stone age" people so often depicted in books and movies.
All of the evidence supports and is consistent with the Biblical account of the early earth, except for the evolutionists' claims as to the dates for these occurrences. Keep one thing in mind, though, when reading or hearing evolutionists' stories, NONE of the dates claimed by the evolutionists are based on written records , but are only speculations based on such things as pottery shards, arrow heads and carbon dating. No written record, other than the Bible, is older than approximately 4,500 years old. Once again consistent with the Genesis account of the early earth and the dispersion of the people at Babel as they began new civilizations around the world.
Many times I have been asked, "Do evolutionists really suppress the facts that are contrary to what the evolutionist establishment wants to hear?" The answer is yes, because those who say what isn't popular with the evolutionist establishment can get punished. On page 56 of the Newsweek article is the quote, "Four or five possible pre-Clovis sites in South America were never reported because the scientists feared that doing so would wreck their reputations." (emphasis added) This admission reveals the pressure used to suppress the evidence that doesn't support the evolutionists story.
The good news is that today, the truth is being proclaimed ever more effectively by ministries such as Project CREATION. Your support can help in getting out this truth to a lost and dying world.
