Better location of the rivers.

Genesis 2:10–14 lists four rivers in association with the garden of Eden: Pishon, Gihon, the Tigris, and the Euphrates.

Ancient Mesopotamia is called the cradle of civilization.

The first cities and empires formed here. As you will see from the timeline, power changed hands many times throughout the ancient history of this area. It went from the Sumer to the Akkadians to the Babylonians to the Assyrians back to the Babylonians back to the Assyrians and finally to the Persians.

I had forgotten that Mesopotamia was called the cradle of civilization......this from a kids book!!!!

God help us in what the universities are teaching.

And just where did I say that.....I saw this map and quite a few other maps....

So what is your point on this map?

I looked back at your allegations and this website that was posted, has 7 maps in it? I'm not a mind reader. I'm pretty good at a lot of things. But reading minds....I get an "F"

Do you really need every little tidbit of information spoon fed to you so slowly so that you don't choke on it? If you can't understand the map then you have no chance of understanding anything else. Good luck, you are unworthy of any further attention from me.

Just curious. Where did these people get their knowledge ?
Who taught them ?

Another one bites the dust.....I hope your not the best of the secular crowd?

Anyways.....National Geographic doesn't get things right as proven by this map from one of their magazines....

Can anyone see the glaring mistake....?

Let me guess...it doesn't jive with your biblical maps.

The bible is not proof that what the bible says is true or factual in any way...sorry.

You seriously post a CARTOON of 'evolution' and believe that is what scientists have accomplished ?????

Apes ( apes are not monkeys ) and humans share a common ancestor.....that is much different than stating that monkeys turned in to humans.
Yes, you are extremely ill informed, uneducated and ignorant when it comes to natural history. You have been proving that over and over again for 7 pages now.

This is your evolution theory:
2 million to 1.8 million years ago, early humans left Africa and migrated into Asia. Then 1.5 to 1 million years ago moved into Europe. It took more modern humans more time to get to many parts of the world. For example humans only got to Australia within the last 60,000 years. The first civilizations rose within the past 12,000 years.


Evolution is not even a theory ? It's just a bunch of guessing ???? :200: Good lord.

And no, that is not even remotely close to anything I stated or posted.

Do you really believe that a scientist had anything to do with that drawing? And BTW, the dude at the end of the line looks like Jesus. Do you think that was intentional? Did Jesus evolve from a primate? Also, BTW, the drawing shows a primate not a monkey. If you can't tell the difference, you are really not worth talking to.
Trying to get spiritual nourishment from a two thousand year old book is like trying to suck milk from the breast of a woman who has been dead that long.
