The mystery of ancient man: Lost civilizations
Creation Ministries International ^ | Steve Cardno

Posted on 12/23/2010 5:59:45 AM PST by Purrsiancat

Did visitors from space help build the great pyramids of Egypt and Central America?

Is advanced technology from an alien civilization needed to explain how ancient man could move huge stones, build monumental structures, create intricate artwork and organize complex cultures? Some think so, because of their evolutionary belief that ancient man was ‘primitive’.

If evolution were true, the further back into history we look, evidence should show a gradual decline in man’s intelligence, moving closer to the ape’s. Biblical creation would indicate otherwise. Man, created in God’s image, has always been intelligent. People make discoveries and invent things, and this knowledge is passed on and built upon. In this way, technology can increase within a society, but this is not because people become more intelligent.

The evidence piling up over the last two decades strongly indicates that the civilization before the flood was a multiplanetary civilization, most likely centered on Mars.

The cause of arguing for creation is not helped by a bad argument. You know why this is bad, don't you?

NASA has been playing some sort of a double game wrt this Martian stuff and it's hard to even figure out their motives since you'd think there'd be money in it, but it blows their ideas about cosmology and the history of our system. Given standard theories, Mars would always have been too far out to draw warmth from the sun and too small to hold an atmosphere via gravity. Nonetheless nature does not do straight lines or Bezier curves on a three mile scale.

It did not come from another planet. It did not come from Mars. Life did not drift on to Earth on meteorites.

Life may very well have been brought to Earth (when it wasn't the Earth we now know) from a colliding celestial body. This idea in no way rejects Genesis. The Epic of Creation was not about a battle of mythical gods, but a celestial battle between planets and satellites.

See my short explanation from the Thread Earth: Rock of Ages or Young Planet?

I don't know what is going on either with NASA and Mars, but I am convinced that the Mars Rover photographs have been manipulated to obscure certain details. I've been a Photoshop user since 1994, and I am familiar with the the tell tail signs left behind when you use the Clone Stamp and the Smudge Tool. When I looked at the Rover photos released on the NASA website, I could see evidence that both had been used.

It did not come from another planet. It did not come from Mars. Life did not drift on to Earth on meteorites.

Scientifically speaking, I don't think life coming from space could be ruled out. I do think that it coming here from another of our planets could probably be ruled out, though.

For those of you who believe that all mankind decended from Adam and Eve, please explain how orientals, caucasions and other races evolved from them. Orientals are not black or hebrew and caucasions are not oriental or black or neanderthal..Please explain how these races came to be.

I agree with you on the game NASA is playing(an increased funding ploy?), but, having spent more time than I want to think of in the outdoors of the western US, I have seen some weird formations that from a distance appear to defy your statement about lines/curves...up close, not so much.

That’s because too many of those Spirit probe photos show mechanical debris strewn across the sands as well as building foundations, structural timbers and the like. Try doing a google search on ‘pia04995’ and download the hires (25mb) TIF version of the NASA image which turns up and check out the lower right corner area of the image.

If I understand your question, I think it would have had to be a collision with something (rogue/life bearing) encountering our solar system.

Any sort of an ancient alien theory as to life getting onto Earth originally just kicks the can a block or two down the road as far as evolution/evoloserism goes. No such theory can answer the mail for the Haldane dilemma or the amounts of time it would actually take for our present biosphere to arise ala Darwin/Gould if that were possible (it isn't).

That was largely Watson and Crick's as well as Hoyle's opinion, that life originated "elsewhere".

The only thing that interests me is how the intricate carvings within Egyptian tombs were accomplished with no traces of carbon within pitch black tunnels.

I seriously doubt any aliens have visited Earth.

We are probably the aliens to them that have always been here.

Yes.

And all this was supposed to take place in a matter of just a couple thousand years?

I believe the earth is billions of years old.

How long ago was it that Noah’s genes repopulated the earth???

I don't believe that the flood in Genisis destroyed all mankind except for Noah and his associates.

I remember watching a show once about the search for civilizations that were lost to sea and the researcher said that they look for 90 degree angles because they do not occur naturally in nature.

There is evidence of a "jump" in human evolution - possibly brought on by genetic manipulation.

Haldane's Dilemma shows that not "enough" genes could have substituted in the human species since the last common ancestor with other apes.

OK. Did that. Looked as directed at the lower right part of the picture...

I see no evidence of ancient Martian life, other than a apparently discarded 2008 Obama campaign button.

And we all know how “intelligent” that turned out to be.

A quote from the book they were giants “ There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men [had sexual relations with them], that they bare CHILDREN to them, the same became MIGHTY MEN which were of old, men of renown” (Gen.6:1-4).’
Seems to me a book I have been reading for years told us all of this and the truth was written down for us thousands of years ago all we have to do is read this book with an open mind. All of these new age shows and books are not really telling us anything new, I like to watch the shows and read the books but really nothing new is in them.
To me the giants, mighty men, men of renown meant they were very smart and did great things like building wonders of the world they did things of renown.
