Metal Working Before God Created The Earth??

If you believe in a evangelical fundamentalist God

What in modern times is the country Armenia, was in ancient times a very valuable resource for mankind…it is thought that much of mans knowledge of metallurgy was gained here around the ancient city of Metsamor.  It was occupied from around 7,000 BC to perhaps 1700 AD and was an astronomical site as well as metallurgical.

Excavation of the ruins has discovered a very large metal industry including a foundry with 2 kinds of blast furnaces.  The foundry is known to have extracted and processed gold, copper, and several types of manganese, zinc, strychnine, mercury, and iron.  Metal from the foundries of Metsamor found their way to Egypt, Central Asia and China.

Several Huge underground caves have been uncovered that are believed to have been storehouses for base metal, as well as a grain storage for winter months.  The first iron in the ancient world may have been forged here.

It is believed that metal working got its start there about 5,000 BC…one more blow to the Young Earth Creationists who STILL believe the earth was formed by a Mesopotamian god around 4000 + BC, and Tubal-Cain invented metal working well after the creation, but before the “Flood” on or about 2400 BC

There are many very ancient human sites around the Armenia/Turkey area going back at least 9,000 to 11,000 years or more.  The whole Babylonian/Turkey/Armenia/Iran/Iraq/Israel/Egypt area is the largest cradle of human civilization…although humans were not originally from there, when we migrated out of Africa to the areas they were found to be very conducive to human life.

Pretty cool chart about the petroglyphs and early writing in the area

California Universities VS Religious Schools

Hey guys, do you remember a few years ago I wrote a post about some Christian fundamentalist schools suing the State of California’s university system for denying entrance to those Christian students because the High Schools science programs were bogus and taught “Creation science” instead of real science?

Well the California universities won their case, but the Christian schools appealed and took the case all the way to the Supreme Court.  On October 12th of this year the Supreme Court refused to review the case, thus effectively ending the Christian schools suit, thereby denying students of Christian schools, whose curriculum teaches that magic was used to create stuff in this world, access to universities run by the state.

Those darn religious fundamentalists just keep up their crazy attempts to ride roughshod over real truths.  They keep trying to replace sanity and logic with religious dogma, and so far we have been lucky enough to have intelligent people see what is going on…and stop it.
