This is very interesting. I sent the link to my daughter. She is a genetic scientist.
I don’t know how many of you study history from the bible, but this goes right along with it. Noah’s flood was to have occured 4-5000 years ago. There were major changes after it. Man’s lifespan was drastically shortened after the flood.
Also, all life died except Noah, his wife, his three sons, and their wives. Only the animals in the ark were saved. Noah’s family repopulated the earth. Also, they started out from Turkey, just as this article says. Lots to think about.
Actually, there’s nothing in that article that says all life died except one family and a few animals on an ark, and the claimed origin of agriculture in the Near East (which includes Turkey) is known from RC dating of domesticated multirow barley to be at least 14,000 years old; in the article the arrival of agriculture in Germany was 5500 BC. There’s also nothing in the article about decreased lifespans, but it’s known from other research that lifespans increased greatly (as did family size) with the rise of agriculture.
Many people fail to notice - the fish lived; so not all life was eliminated ;)
Then evolution must happen really fast if all species of land animals came about from those that could fit on the Ark.
