Quote# 60983

Are you aware that "ALL CULTURES BEGAN SUDDENLY" and were fully developed? A long preliminary period is not supported by archaeology. Before cities on earth, there was nothing. There was no transition whatsoever between the ancient civilizations and any primitive forebearers. They were at their peak from the beginning. :

...Great cities, enormous temples, pyramids of overwhelming size. Colossal statues with tremendous expressive power. Luxurious tunnels and tombs. Splendid streets flanked by magnificent sculpture, perfect drainage systems. A decimal system at the very start. A ready-made writing, already perfected. A well established naming system (in which each Pharaoh had as many as five names). Society already divided into specialist classes. An army, civil service and hierarchy minutely organized. A court exhibiting all the indications of well-defined precedence and form. Egypt came from a clearly established civilization.

The only conclusions that can be drawn from the evidence is that,1 Each of the first civilizations appeared suddenly, already fully developed. 2) That a connection existed between them. 3) Their footprints led back to the Middle East mountains where Noah and his family left the Ark.

"Are you aware that "ALL CULTURES BEGAN SUDDENLY"

Including ours? You saying the medieval period, industrial revolution etc. etc. never happened in Europe? That the US always existed in it's curent form?

That's a new one on me.

That's because unlike they showed in the series finale, the Colonial survivors did build a city instead of going stupid and sending the fleet into the sun. :)

And the hunting and gathering tribes that still exist in this world? What about them, not what I would call advanced. Even the europeans had a stone age.

Naqada culture, anyone? Mastaba tombs? Gerzean glyphs? Narmer Palette?

Not only could the Native Americans walk on water, they could leave footprints on the oceans.

The claims just get sillier and sillier as they run out of ideas.

Instant civilization. Just subtract water.

Are you aware that Chris Parker is a moron, and that history (and archaeology) have proven that "all cultures" did NOT "begin suddenly"...

"A decimal system at the very start."

False! While the ancient Egyptians did have a unit fraction system, using the eye of Horus (and further enhancing that system in the Middle Egypt era, already disputing the claim of an immediate decimal system), decimals were not familiar to them, as their language did not include the decimal expansions of these fractions. Number system? Yes. Rational number system? Clunky, but yes. Decimal system? No.

Everything else smells of BS, too, but math's my forte.

Way to downplay the awesome power that is the human mind.

A well established naming system (in which each Pharaoh had as many as five names).

Government name, street name, a nick, coupla aliases, plus some titles, damn, Pharoah been bangin'.

Egypt came from a clearly established civilization.

First the civilization, the tombs, tunnels, pyramids and stuff - then they turned it all into Egypt, when they were damned well ready.

And the Vikings used GPS to find their way to Greenland.

I believe it was Pasteur who disproved spontaneous generation many centuries ago.

No worries. Just a fundamentalist's biblical viewpoint. Enormously retarded but enjoyable if you have a sense of humour that enjoys mockery of idiocy, I do, or if you have a psychological disposition that allows utter faith in total bollocks, I don't. Luckily, for the sake of humanity, those with such a disposition are in the minority.

Chris Parker is free to believe what he wants but he's still a complete moron. Has no connection with reality and needs urgent medical attention.

And people who understand the reasonable nature of evolution claim something came from nothing, right?

"ALL CULTURES BEGAN SUDDENLY" and were fully developed?
No. Anyone who has studied history will see there is a clear emergence and evolution of world cultures starting around 8,000-6,000 BCE.
