There are datings that suggest the Pyramids go back 10,000 years for original construction or a bit earlier. It varies and dating is such an imperfect thing. There is also still so much we don't know about the Pyramids. It's really exciting to know new things are still being found in and around the main structures as well as new Pyramids around the world.
(Genesis 4:19-22) . . .And La′mech proceeded to take two wives for himself. The name of the first was A′dah and the name of the second was Zil′lah. 20 In time A′dah gave birth to Ja′bal. He proved to be the founder of those who dwell in tents and have livestock. 21 And the name of his brother was Ju′bal. He proved to be the founder of all those who handle the harp and the pipe. 22 As for Zil′lah, she too gave birth to Tu′bal-cain, the forger of every sort of tool of copper and iron.. . .

If you believe in creationism how do you explain the current 10 million species of land based animals. God created everything as it is.

No you don't know and can't prove that there is a intelligent designer
Hebrews 11:7. . .By faith Noah, after being given divine warning of things not yet beheld, showed godly fear and constructed an ark for the saving of his household; and through this [faith] he condemned the world, and he became an heir of the righteousness that is according to faith.
For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. 38 For as they were in those days before the flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; 39 and they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away, . . .

I have been reading your "answers" to things in this thread. You have to be taking the Pi$$. There is no way anyone could seriously believe the dribble you are putting forward. Your statements aren't even based on anything remotely resembling what the bible says. You just seem to make things up as you go along. We ask you questions based on logic and science and you answer with just utter dribble. From now on I believe you need to start supporting your claims with evidence. At least other religious folk on this site use the bible as a reference, you just seem to pull things out of thin air and expect people to buy into it. Either post supporting evidence or stop with the nonsense

I have often wondered if Noah took 2 of ever local species as he could and then a regional flood took place. Not a world wide flood but one they have proven happened.
I do not believe that the entire world flooded or that Noah took 2 of "EVERY" animal, but there is something to the story as it shows up in many religions and stories.
That's a very interesting theory! I wonder how long it would have taken Noah and his sons to make something so enormous? To think, just the time it took to gather and shape all the timber, craft the tools, then whatever joining glues or nails they used! I don't think it could have been possible to do this in one lifetime! Nevermind to have the storage for the animals, then collect enough food for them! Quite improbable but for some reason I do feel that God does exist! So maybe there is more to the story of Noah! Maybe God kept noah and his family strong and young enough so they could work on the ark for long enough! Maybe they did'nt have to save every species! Maybe just enough species so the lord could manipulate them genetically! Whatever they case is, it has been shown that a great flood did happen many millenia ago!
I don't think it's by chance that there never is any undeniable proof and the more unlikely the story the more faith that is required! the more science shows us our past the more it seems that religion and science are divided!
I am not one of those that will deny facts and say the earth is only six or seven millenia old!
I am also not going to deny God and say there is no such thing! There is so many people that have had near death experiences! So many who were saved by angels! Some who experienced demons (possession)!
Who is arrogant enough to think we evolved without any guidance?
I never wanted to believe in God and for what I have been through it would have been much easier to believe that after we die we go to sleep! I feel that there is this connection, that something or someone has been protecting me! I have not always believed in a higher intelligents but i do now, I also prey to God and Jesus in times of stress and I've never understood why this comforts me! I am not trying to convince anyone to believe but am only validating my own experiences! I shall never understand why so many people seem like there is a hate for anything religious. Why they are so angry at those of us who believe! It's not as if i believe in the religious hierarchy but actually dispise the hierarchy and though i was born into the catholic belief system, i had stopped worshipping or believing in my early teens but about at my late 30s started to see there is more to life then meets the 5 senses! Today I would say I'm of the gnostic belief basically because of a lack of faith in humanity! We should all be equal in the eyes of man whether we are athiest, believer, bishop or pope as we should all be judged by our actions and not by our positions in the eyes of the lord as well!
Sorry for going off topic people but the existance of God has more relavance to this time then any Arc of the son of Abraham being remade for a tourist attraction!
