“And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.”
Evolutionary theory says that man only developed farming recently in his history. Besides going against common sense, this evolutionary idea is beginning to cause problems with the greatly inflated evolutionary dating system.
Evolutionary scientists were confident that man only began farming 8,000 years ago. However, while studying a site in Egypt, which by inflated evolutionary dating was thought to be 18,000 years old, evolutionists found grains of wheat and barley. They couldn’t believe that man was farming so early in his history.
Using different methods, they arrived at dates anywhere from 4,800 to 18,000 years old. Not knowing what to do, they decided that the grains must have somehow fallen to the older layer and that man really wasn’t farming or harvesting so early in history.
However, this explanation didn’t solve all of their problems. Evolutionists still have no explanation for the hundreds of grind stones – used to grind grain – which were found at the older site. There are two lessons in this for us. One is that evolutionists’ dates are not very objective. They pick and choose whatever fits their theory.
The second lesson is that man was farming and harvesting a lot earlier than most people think. In fact, the Bible tells us that the job of the first man, Adam, was to tend the Garden of Eden!
Dear Father in heaven, I thank You for the sure and certain revelation of Your Word and that its wisdom and truth confound all who doubt it. Help me to read it more, and better study and understand it. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
