Wait a sec, Cass.Ã‚Â We invented the stone age?
I guess you are being sarcastic.Ã‚Â You must be.Ã‚Â No-one can actually think the neolithic period is a figment of peoples' imagination.
No creationist believes in the 'Stone Age', you clearly have never read any creationist literature. You just shut your eyes and close your ears to it...anyway let me give you an entire article i wrote two years back debunking the ''Stone Age''.The Imaginary Stone Age
The Ã¢â‚¬Å“Stone AgeÃ¢â‚¬Â is an invented age by evolutionists and Uniformitarians. It never actually existed. It has no basis in truth and cannot be substantiated by any archeological evidence. This imaginary Stone Age, according to common belief spanned from around 2.6 million years ago to as recent as 10,000 years ago.
Not only is the idea ridiculous, it contradicts actual findings.
The Imaginary Ages of Evolutionists
The Stone Age - 2.6 million -11,000 years ago (including the Paleolithic, or Old Stone Age, Mesolithic or Middle-Stone Age and Neolithic or New Stone Age).
Copper Age/Chalcolithic - 8,000-3,300BC.
The Bronze Age - Middle-east: 3200-1200BC, India: 3000-1200BC, East Asia: 3000-500BC, Europe: 3000-600BC.
The Iron Age - Middle-east - 1300-600BC, India: 1200-200BC, Asia: 600BC-300AD, Europe: 1200BC-400AD.
It should be noticed that the evolutionary model of time, is completely wrong and is based on nothing traditional/factual.
Before I get onto this topic of exactly when metals were truly being made, I will first just disprove that the Stone Age existed.
The name of the Stone Age itself is based on the idea that the primitive ancestors of modern people 2.6 million - 10,000 years ago used stone (mostly flint) for tool making. If there was once a worldwide Stone Age, then billions of such tools should have been unearthed (since flint does not disintegrate easily), but as French author and archeologist Robert Charroux correctly noted (1979, p.6):
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The fact is that, relatively speaking, practically none have been found: only a few hundred thousand (Stone Age) axes, not enough to justify the assumption of more than twenty inhabitants of the globe per generation
Note: Charroux was certianly not a creationist, this shows many are skeptical of the evolutionist's concocted ''Stone Age'' outside of the creation science movement.
As Robert Charroux worked out, by simple mathematics, since the number of discovered Stone Age tools and weapons is such a low figure, only a few hundred thousand or a few million at the max, it implies the earth was only inhabited by about twenty inhabitants per generation from 2.6 million - 11,000 years ago. This is quite simply absurd. Since Charroux was born in France, he worked out the mathematics in relation to Stone Age tools unearthed in France. He detailed his discoveries in his study (1979, p.60-63) and concluded:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The conclusion is obvious: the number of flint tools does not indicate the number of men who lived in France.Ã¢â‚¬Â
This makes perfect logical sense because since adherents of the Stone Age believe the ancestors of modern man for millions of years made flint tools, then on average, a single individual would have made around a hundred at the very minimum during his or her lifetime. This means there should be a huge amount of such Stone Age findings:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“100 x world populationÃ¢â‚¬Â
No-one will ever know the world population of people or what evolutionists call ancestral Ã¢â‚¬Å“HominidsÃ¢â‚¬Â 2.6 million or 11,000 years ago, though it can be suggested sensibly a figure from several million to the minimum of around 200,000. Though of course from 2.6 million - 11,000 years ago the world population would have changed. By going with the minimum estimate of 200,000 of a world population, at only one specific point in time, then the sum should be:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“100 x 200,000Ã¢â‚¬Â
The answer is 20,000,000 (20 million), yet this number actually exceeds already actual findings, and this figure only represents one generation of the 2.8 million to 11,000 year ago period. If the 2.8 million figure (how long the Stone Age supposedly lasted) is divided by about 60 (representing a life span of about 60 = 1 generation) the answer is 46,666 generations. The correct sum should thus be 100 x 46,666 x 200,000. That is 100 Stone Age tools x 46,666 generations (covering 2.8 million years) x the world population figure.
The answer is: 933320000000 Stone Age findings should have been unearthed!
Of course this figure is completely ridiculous and as Robert Charroux pointed out it would be silly to presume billions and billions of Stone Age tools still remain buried and undiscovered in the ground. It can be concluded then, that the Stone Age is a pure invention by evolutionists, and has no basis in fact, simple maths and logic refutes it.
There are two questions that however remain unanswered.
1. Firstly, what was used as tools instead of flint by man several thousands of years ago.
2. Secondly how are the small amount of findings of flint tools explained, even though as established there were only a few hundred thousand ever made, meaning there would have only been under a few hundred used across the earth during one generation.
1. People originally used non-stone tools and weapons but they have since disintegrated. This obviously relates to well known physics and the property of metals, which although are superior during their short existence - rust and disintegrate unlike flint. Iron rusts, silver, copper tarnish and eventually corrode, even gold can tarnish. And of course violent cataclysms would have completely destroyed such metals.
2. The people, who used flint weapons in the past, were extreme minorities and outcasts. These people only existed in the hundreds and were isolated tribes. Minorities on earth today still exist such as primitive tribes in New Guinea which still use stone tools. Stone and flint mines, which archaeologists have discovered, which are thousands of years old, were not used for the production of weapons and tools, but for the construction of homes, other buildings and monuments.
So it is vitally important to understand that both advanced civilizations and more backward cave cultures lived at the same time.* We thus have no reason to conclude that the less advanced peoples were ancestors of the more advanced ones.
*For example we have the testimony of Diodorus Siculus, who wrote of people living along the shores of the Red Sea in caves with stone weaponry, while at the same time classical Greece Rome flourished. The Age of metals
The Bible of course teachs us that metals were in existance before the flood, during antideluvian times. Tubal-Cain is credited with having been the founder of brass and iron (Genesis 4: 22). What is apparent is that man appeared intelligent, as a builder and smelter, not having progressed from a lower level. A recent article i stumbled across perfectly explains all this in more depth, proving that archeology is no friend to evolution.http://www.ensignmes.../evolution.html
Iron objects were also in Europe long before the 6th century BC. Evolutionists of course feel to need to 'primitivise' our ancestors, especially those from Northern Europe. However Iron objects and Iron bars were unearthed from WaylandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Smithy, a chambered tomb in Oxfordshire, England and dated 2000BC (as documented in Antiquity Journal, 1921). Here then, it is apparent evolutionists need to revise their dates.
