Man had great technical knowledge and creativity — from the beginning.

The pyramids of Egypt reveal ancient man’s ingenuity. The Giza pyramid was built with 115,000 casing stones of polished white marble, each of them weighing from 16-20 tons. A massive earthquake in A.D. 1301 loosened many, which were then removed to build Cairo. The joint thickness between these marble stones was a minuscule 0.020 inch. Inside the narrow gap was a type of cement that bonded the marble with greater strength than that of the marble itself. The composition of this cement is still a mystery to us.

The largest blocks measured five feet high by 12 feet long by 8 feet deep, with an average variation of only 0.01 inch. This degree of exactness is difficult even today.

When we examine any Egyptian pyramid we find that the four sides are equal in length within 0.1%. Modern builders do well with 1-2%.

The pyramids were also built on absolutely level bases with no sagging. It has been estimated that it would take 100,000 men to construct a typical pyramid and they would need to set a new block every 20 minutes for the pyramid to be completed in 20 years. There are over two million quarried blocks in the Great Pyramid.

After the Flood and the tower of Babel mankind migrated across the globe and spread their technological knowledge. For instance, some of Noah’s relatives settled in Egypt.

The first pyramids of ancient Egypt were the best, with the later ones becoming smaller and shoddier. Almost every ancient culture (all of which sprang into existence shortly after the flood) shows signs of great technological knowledge and creativity.

Ancient man was not some primitive caveman but was made in God’s image and highly intelligent.1

Zillah also bore Tubal-cain; he was the forger of all instruments of bronze and iron. The sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.

Genesis 4:22

We exist to glorify and honor God by equipping Christians to diligently “go and make disciples” and contend for the faith with gentleness and respect—in a morally and spiritually bankrupt culture.

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you.

Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?

In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.”
(Job 7-10)
