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

    Landy: The Airplanes he saw, Lilienthal, Wright, Lindbergh, Ford tri-motor, Mosquito, Spruce goose, were much like the ark, made from wood. mostly.

    Glad your granddad saw a lot, hope a life well lived.

    Erm, Jehovah invented swords when they were ejected from the Garden of Eden and he set one to guard the entrance (yeah, a flaming sword, but if it was just flame then was it a sword?). I guess there must have been a super-high wall like in the hunger games / maze-runner as well or else it was whizzing round at high speed.

    Yeah, bible isn't a place for solid information.

    1 Samuel 13 (end of the chapter) tells us the Philistines had iron tools and the Israelite had none.. this is closer to reality........

    Good old Tubal Cain, "ancestor of all who work iron" - and writer of a regular column in the Model Engineer (UK) magazine!

    The use of iron did not happen simultaneously across all the ancient civilisations. Amongst the first to use iron cutting implements were the Celtic peoples of North Western Eurpoe, who were by no means at the forefront of civilisation (The Celtic peoples included the ancient Britons, and also the Gauls of France - all of whom the Romans would have unequivocally classified as "barbarians").

    Simon by that logic when Jehovah told Adam in the sweat of his face he would eat BREAD (product of fire) it means Adam knew how to make fire....

    There is a crazy witness talk about that garden of eden that claimed that lol

    HTBWC: "God looked with favor on Abel's sacrifices of fatty carrion". fat implies easy combustion, given later bible examples, so the look of Jah might imply self-combustion, and a source of fire like lightning strikes, volcanism, catching a match from the flaming swords, and Prometheus lurking in the background.
