    Read this over at Reddit so the credit goes to the person over there but in Genesis 4:22 it's say one of the offspring of Adam knew how to work with Iron roughly 130 years after the creation of man. Now historians and scientists say man didn't figure out how to use Iron until about 1100 BC, Man we're we wrong! It's also interesting that Cain is building a city when there like 10 people on the planet and Nimrod goes on to build the Tower of Babel only about 100 year after the flood. Man those babies must of been stong!

    The Bible is (after the Watchtower Society) the last place to go for facts.

    Well i'm sure the bible has to say that. After all, it's imperative to pretend that Iron was available much earlier, so that Noah could make nails for his boat. Unless he used spit and dirt to clue all of those board together, or maybe Jellohoba provided him celestial nails especially made for his project.

    Noah used Gorilla glue.

    He had to melt down a lot of Gorillas to make the glue though, he kept a breeding pair to take aboard.

    DJeggnog will confirm this.

    that late iron/ steel use is a question for the Pyramid builders too. which was done during the time of the deluge bsw.

    researchers tried with stone masons using copper, bronze tools to shape such blocks, and it took more time to keep the chisels sharp than to hammer away.

    The pyramids were just stacks, there is no way to build a wooden, stressed structure with fasteners only, even if you have first growth timber hundert meters long. build with dulling , saws, axes, planes, chisels by a crew of 4.

    Wooden dowels, copper rivets might just hold for 9 month, even show less rust than iron.

    P.S.May be Noah used the daughters of men to distract the angels, soon to be demons, that handled the twirling swords at the entrance to Eden to let them analyze the new metal alloy, and speed the assembly of the ark?

    Notice that both Noah and Jesus were woodworkers. tall tales of tall ships.

    My grandad recently died. He was 95 years old. He was around before Lindbergh flew the Atlantic.

    So according to the witnesses and other Christian fundie sects, in just 40 of his lifetimes (give or take since the flood) the whole history of civilisation; in china; in Africa; in Australaisia has grown.

    Yeah, right.

    Or the methuselah tree that pre dates the flood by 500 years but somehow survived being under water for more than a year.

    Hoser, That tree grows high in the mountain, so, perhaps water covered Everest only for a few minutes, long enough to drown the last hanger-ons, and then dropped rapidly, leaving the tree, and other methuselah offspring well watered. killed the talking snakes though.

    Historical evidence means virtually nothing to most people who accept the Bible as the Word of God. If historical evidence (or a lack thereof) and the Bible contradict each other, then the Bible is always right no matter what because it was right that one time about Pilate being a real person before other historical evidence corroborated his existence.
