How do we know cars are true since there is no recorded history of them before they were invented?

"If Evolution were true.....then why no recorded human history before 4000 BC?"
"If I were an evolutionist, I would be extremely disturbed by this FACT. Prove me wrong!"
I'm an Atheist & an Evolutionist, and I'm disturbed by your extreme ignorance. I can prove you wrong with this simple fact, summed up in two words: Ancient China.

If evolution is true, why are there no photographs before the 1820's? I mean, if there were people around back then, why don't we have pictures of them?
BTW, the "prove me wrong" argument" is called the argument from personal incredulity fallacy.

Wow. Simply, wow!
I suppose all the evidence of human culture and development from over 10,000 years ago such as:
Cueva de los manos, Argentina
and Wonderwerk, South Africa
are all hoaxes!?!? You really are just fucking dense aren't you, White Shooting Star of HK?

This guy is just retarded. I feel stupid after reading his question.

Because Writting was invented around 5000 BC?. There is a time called PRE HISTORY.
2/19/2010 10:18:30 AM
It's probably because methods of recording history didn't come around until thousands of years ago. Just because mankind lived hundreds of thousands of years ago doesn't mean he knew how to write.

How can you possibly be this ignorant?
2/19/2010 10:28:02 AM
Oh, you mean like a book copyrighted in 20,000 BCE, written in God's language, English?
I happen to have one on my bookshelf at home.
No, you can't see it.

Well, obviously people spent millions of years trying to pick up pens while they slowly developed thumbs...

Stupid fundie retard.
There is no educating some people. Their shield of logical disconnect is too strong. Plenty of people posted valid answers to his moronic question. He ignored every single one and picked another fundie halfwit for best answer.
Sometimes I wish it were possible to ignore these people completely except they keep fucking with our lives by insisting we respect their idiotic point of view and "teach the controversy".
Newsflash. creationists. There is no controversy. Evolution happened and creationism is for morons.

@ Slave to Uni: I love those cave paintings. They always make me feel a closer kinship to my ancestors. I'm was all warm and fuzzy inside until I reread White Shooting Star's drivel again. Stupid people always make me embarrassed to be a Homo Sapien.

Uh, sorry, but we have over 40,000 years of recorded history.

"Despite a full century of scientific insights attesting to the antiquity of life and the greater antiquity of the earth, more than half of our neighbors believe that the entire cosmos was created six thousand years ago. This is, incidentally, about a thousand years after the Sumerians invented glue." ~ Sam Harris

This sounds like something david stewart said on his site. That being said, there are cultures with records prior to 4000 BC.

Here is a fascinating, well-documented account of what all is involved in developing writing for a spoken language:
BTW, following the biblical timeline, Methuselah died about 17 years after the flood. Did the ark have a stowaway?

"The world's history is CLEARY defined by SIX world powers since time began: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome."
The Indus River Valley Civilization would like a word with you...

This has to be a Poe.
*checks best answer*
Dear god this dumbass is for real...
2/19/2010 2:09:42 PM
"is the FACT that there is NO recorded history prior to 4,000 B.C."
If you can count cave paintings
as recorded history, then yes there is.
2/19/2010 2:29:14 PM
There are scientific disciplines devoted to various aspects of prehistory. And God's word on world history is a bit on the muzzy side.

Recorded history goes back quite a ways before that, though I'm curious how you think there would be recorded history prior to the invention of written language.
2/19/2010 3:13:20 PM
So ... what you're saying is, no artifacts created before the invention of writing count as evidence, because none of those artifacts has "THIS WAS MADE IN 5500 BC" written on it?
