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.

I don't think there's a single correct statement in that entire paragraph.

You know you could pick a less well understood civilisation? We know how Egypt rose and fell.

Yeah, because footprints in sand stay.

The only logical conclusion that can be drawn from this post is that the person who wrote it is a retard.

You know once a species gets down to 2-8 individuals, it doesn't actually have enough genetic diversity to properly propagate and is pretty much doomed without intervention from technology.

You are an imbecile. That is all.

Bullshit. Archaeology shows that all cultures did not begin suddenly. In every case there was a gradual transition from a nomadic hunter-gatherer society, to settled farming communities, to larger towns and eventually the first cities and highly complex societies that we describe, loosely, as 'civilised'. In every case the process took centuries if not millennia. You are full of shit.

civilization
One entry found.

Main Entry:
civ·i·li·za·tion \?si-v?-l?-'za-sh?n\
Function:
noun
Date:
1772

1 a: a relatively high level of cultural and technological development ; specifically : the stage of cultural development at which writing and the keeping of written records is attained b: the culture characteristic of a particular time or place
2: the process of becoming civilized
3a: refinement of thought, manners, or taste b: a situation of urban comfort


of course there are no records from before civilization, a civilization is defined by the beginning of is where they attained the ability to keep track of themselves

also tyrants tended to destroy or rewrite any history before themselves in an effort to boost their own magnificence

The other milestones of human development: control of fire, use of tools, settled agriculture, the wheel, the sail, all appeared simultaneously with your ancient city, which, of course told visitors, "Welcome to Fabulous Ur, Mesopatomia!"

Yes I found footprints the Mayans took from the Middle East all the way across Asia, across to North America, and then down to the Yucatan Penn.

Most cultures have been shown to have mutated and branched from other cultures. Lern2history.

Is this some sort of highly evolved variation of "Just last Tuesday, MY god made the whole world in it's present state." argument?

3/31/2009 5:39:43 PM

WHAT.

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.

NOMADS MOVE BETWEEN WATER SUPPLIES AND FOLLOW HERDS AND GATHER UP FOOD. IT'S WHAT THEY DO. THEY BUILD SMALL DWELLINGS FOR A WHILE, THEN THEY TAKE THEM DOWN AND MOVE. THAT'S HOW IT WORKS

ANTHROPOLOGY AND HISTORY, LEARN YOU SOME, FUCKING STUPID FUNDIE TRASH.

So, wait...these civilizations came into being all around the same time, after the flood, descending from Noah's family alone, all of which happened ~4000 years ago? Yeah, I don't think it's feasible for geographic regions to be populated and the civilizations described to develop from a single family in that short amount of time. I am fairly certain that the oldest civilizations that we've found archaelogical evidence for existed well before when the flood was supposed to take place, for example. The archaelogical evidence simply doesn't fit into that ridiculous timeline unless you really wish to force it in there.
