Stumbled onto a Darwinian ‘Creationist’ blog called ‘Naturalis Historia’, which means as much as Natural History, but I didn’t find it so natural, other than it being a Naturalistic Materialist Darwinian philosophy blog, under Christian Flag? I guess by the time you have written over a hundred articles defending Darwinism, it is awfully hard to have a metanoia, as Heinrich Heine, the great Skeptic, had, who at his end changed his attitude. In the postscript to his poem collection “Romancero” (30.9.1851) he wrote:
“When you are on your deathbed, you become more sensitive and you would like to make peace with God and the world. Poems, that only contained halfway reproaches against God, I delivered over to the flames in a fearful zeal. It is better, that the verses burn than the verse maker, I returned to God as a prodigal son, after I fed the swine with the Hegelians for a long time. In the theology I have to accuse myself of retreating, because I returned to a ‘personal God’.”
As he died: “God will forgive me. It’s his job.” source
They seem to believe – I think – in the spurious, unproven, “millions of years” undocumented history and the widely accepted morphology from postulated “primates” into (squatting of course! Like monkeys, you see?) Photo-shopped Cavemen, then Hunter-gatherers, and Neanderthalers, into agricultural “Homo Sapiens”, and then finally “Homo Sapiens Sapiens” (Think twice!) paradigm.
Because they have such a hard time adopting a recent ancient history, limited by the global Flood around 2400 BC, the 10 Pre-Flood Kings, and the 8 Flood Survivors, whom all the Ancients talked about, incl. the Sumerians, Indians, Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese, and others, plus the now over 700 counted global Flood histories! That can hardly be called a fluke, can it now?
I think many academically trained Christians have a very hard time accepting the Patriarchs and their honest accounts, that Earth was recently created, not long before the Flood, because they all testified of it.
I guess it stems from shamed embarrassment and ridicule that they already had to endure for being Christians in skeptic leftist universities, and especially for confessing a recently created Earth. It is so hammered into them – and all of us! – that they feel like they just can’t make the break from the “millions and billions of years” postulated age of the Earth, afraid to be delegitimatised by their peers. Peer pressure is a real problem, especially in the modern mostly Marxist-led universities. It is very hard to shake the inevitable mind clamp!
Here is a comment of an intimidated believer(?) on that blog, despairing Ken Ham’s Noah’s Ark Park, illustrating that fear of peers!
They have an article about Bronze Age Doggerland, in which they deplore empirical Flood history and Flood science that only has ONE Ice Age and far more recent, melting around 1500 BC.
Here is a screen shot of their article
I left the following comment which is awaiting moderation. (without the graphics)
The reason that you can’t fit the world’s population into 4400 years since the 2400 BC Flood, is because the dating of these submerged items are colored by your Darwinian premises based on
1. The “geological column” and “geological timescale” which are dated by the key fossils which are dated by the layers which are dated by the key fossils, etc. ad infinitum (circular reasoning)
2. Your wrong (though popular) dating of the unique ice age, which actually took place after the Flood until 1500 BC, when the hotter oceans had cooled, stopped evaporation, which halted the snows (ice caps) and Sahel rains, when the melting of the land ice caps raised the global sea level by 125 M. (300 ft) submerging Bronze Age Atlantis, Land of Mu, Sunda land, Dwaraka ( as witnessed by Arjuna in the Mahabaratha), Doggerland, and many submerged islands, port cities, towns, ruins, etc.
And so you see how your paradigm dictates very ancient (10-30-80.000 yr. old) ice ages and Neanderthalers, cavemen, hunter gatherer, agriculturalist “evolution”. There was no pre-history, only pre-Flood history with the 10 legendary kings, universally acknowledged by many civilisations (e.g. Sumerian kinglist), the many historical instances of the eight survivors, like our Chinese 3 Huang 5 Di (=8 incl. Nuwa (Noah), Fuxi, Shen Nong), Sumerian Oannes with his friends (8), Indian MaNu with his 7 Rishis (8), and the Egyptian Ogdoad (Octo=8), etc, Southern China Miao people, Manu & wife, Lo Shen, lo Han, Yaphu, plus 3 wives (8), Dravidian-Indian Satyavratha with 3 sons; Sharma, Charma, and Yaphethi (plus 4 wives=8) , Hebrew Noah, Shem, Ham, Yapheth & wives (8), all 8 of whom were Flood survivors! Not to mention the over 700 other flood legends worldwide.
See your paradigm dictates your dating and conclusions, as ours do as well. But we have documentary evidence from many ancient sources. If you are interested in learning about them visit our www. ancientpatriarchs.wordpress.com site, where Euhemerism and Grand Diffusionism are not pejoratives like in Wicked Pedia, but honorable empirical science, going where the evidence leads us.
Have a good paradigm shift and a great day, gentlemen.
PS: The much maligned (by Darwinians) Oera Linda Bok, Annals of Clonmacnoise, REAL British History by Geoffrey Monmouth, and many other interesting ancient chronicles also have king-lists going back all the way to Yapeth and his father Noah.
Come over and see. You might enjoy REAL history for once, even though it is not taught anymore in politically correct Marxist Elite (qu)academia. 🙂
Love & Peace

They also found left overs of settlements, as you can see here, and they are Bronze Age, not 8000 years or older.
The Frisian Oera Linda Book talks about the floods that wiped out their Frisland homeland, an island, when the ocean level rose, after 1500 BC.
