Apologies if this is too glaringly obvious/ been posted before. I felt the need to express it.

Has anyone ever noticed the fact that the bible, in its first few books, supports the theory that an ancient advanced civilization that was wiped out in cataclysm existed on earth before ours?

Look at cain finding the "land of Nod" in genesis, groups of humans that were advanced and had some form of civilization, while adam and eve (supposedly the "first humans) were still toddling around in the desert.

Fast forward a few hundred years, and you get the tale of Noah. Apparently the known world was full of civilization at this point, which was summarily wiped out by the flood.

Thus, the bible supports the theory that a far older civilization than the one we know of, at an unknown technological level, existed and was destroyed.

Common knowledge, anyone care to discuss?

Funnily enough, theres a thread now about scientists saying that a comet hit earth and destroyed life around 13,000 years ago. But I dunno, surely there would be some evidence of an "advanced race". Depends what you mean by advanced though. Its not out of the realm of possibility, but I dunno.

To me its so obvious.

Stories are going to be passed down, its just something we do. Maybe it gets twisted a little bit but never the less it's passed down in some way or another.
I think all those stories in the bible have some basis to them, I just cant imagine a fiction being passed down from generation to generation.

There were more people during adams day but the story that made it through the years and was passed down just spoke about that particular tribe or whatever.

Somewhere, maybe deep in the pyramid, we will find something one day that will explain all the nonsense these freakin religiuos people have crapped out of there mouths all these years. I am so sick of religion I could puke.

I am of the oppinion that Adam and Eve and their offspring were the only source for human kind. Remember it was about 1600 years before the Deluge happened. A great deal of things could have happened between the creation of Adam and the Flood. Also, it is suggested that at some point in that time some of the angels materialized and fathered sons with human women. Either they or their sons would have ruled over many cities due to their superiority, strength and or power. These cities would have been advanced compared to those built by total humans.

Check out Gen: chapter 6 verse 4

According to that there were giants living on earth and Angels were having earth babies. Is that fiction?

The bible contradicts itself saying that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman, then, low and behold Cain goes out and meets a whole bunch of people elsewhere.

Also the worldwide flood in the bible is impossible for the verbal storytellers of the bible to have witnessed or known about, they didn't have airplanes, spaceships, or satellites to cover the whole globe and see that it was entirely covered by water or not.

So wherever they may have lived sure, it sunk, it got washed away, it can happen, but they exaggerated their claims through ignorance of facts.

Atlantis may or may not be fable, but islands do sink and vanish, it happens, don't need a comet to do it either, melting icebergs can do the job.

It rained for 40 straight days somewhere in Texas somewhere, and guess what, Texas is still there! So much for the bible's deluge.

We Cylons dropped them off because they were useless. They were terrorizing the far reaches of space. Nod was once one of their planets but we nuked it.

Adam and Eve and their offspring were the only source for human kind.



Let's have a look.




Genesis 4
14 Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me."

15 But the LORD said to him, "Not so [e] ; if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over."

17 Cain lay with his wife, and she became pregnant ...

19 Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah.


Who will find Cain? Adam? Eve? or others???????????
If Adam and Eve killed Cain, lord will give them 7 times suffer?

Cain lay with his wife? Eve? INCEST? son sleep with mother? Who else?

Lamerch married two women, who was Adah and Zillah? Eve changed her name to Adah and Zillah? Who were they????

Incest?

That is interesting.
Where can I find more informations about Lilith?

It is NOT what most Christians don't want us to know, but it is MOST Christians DON'T KNOW.

I also heard God actually laid with Eve to give birth to Cain. Cain was NOT Adam's son.

Lilith is a figure from Jewish legend and mythology. One of the more recent scholarly sources on this comes from Robert Graves.

Another interesting site:

Common knowledge. To the best of my memory, every time we start discussing these, someone brings up the Bible. We bring up the lack of physical evidence and other evidence.

That's interesting . Do you have a link I could view to back that up. Some how I never heard about that.

Also regarding the flood the Bible doesn't state that it just rained for 40 days.

Genesis 7, verse 11.
In the six hundredth year of Noah'slife, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened..

I often thought about this for a while. How could 40 days and nights of rain completely cover the earth as to cover the tallest mountain?. Then this overlooked passage of scripture was pointed out to me. There's alot of water beneath the surface of the earth . If somehow there would have been a great shift under the crust maybe all the water bellow was forced to the surface as well. That gave the flood a little more credibility to me IMO.

Not that I don't believe that the earth was inhabited before Adam and Eve. However I am not sure of the time frame that you describe. the land of Nod actually just describes an action. The word Nod means wandering.

The Land of Nod (Hebrew: ’eretz-Nod) is a place in the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible, located "to the east of Eden", to which Cain was banished after murdering his brother Abel. The Hebrew word nod means "wandering"."And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden." (Genesis 4:16, King James Version)
["Nod" (נוד) is the Hebrew root of the verb "to wander" (לנדוד) and is possibly an etymological etiology intended to explain the peripatetic lifestyle of Cain and his descendants, the Cainites. One interpretation of Genesis 4:16 is that Cain was cursed to wander the land forever, not that he was exiled to a "Land of Wanderers", otherwise absent from the Old Testament.
