After the flood, the most rapid, massive cultural change on record is the Exodus. The time of the Exodus was a dramatic change for every culture on earth that we know about.

Isaiah Chapter 3: Culture of Youth and Beauty — Post by Mary C. Findley

Sounds like Jerusalem and Judah had it pretty good, right? Look over that list of material provision (support system, food, water) and leadership (military, judiciary, teachers, advisers, craftsmen, and someone who may have been a charismatic speaker or influencer). The use of the phrase skillful enchanter gives us a hint that they weren’t sourcing any …

I. What Is an Establishment of Religion?

(This is an excerpt from Disestablish, a 50-page summary of the Antidisestablishmentarianism and Conflict of the ages series to date.)

A Simple Overview of the Mechanisms Which Caused the Flood — Post by Michael J. Findley

1) There is more water under the seas than in the seas. The exact amount is not important. It is important to understand that this is considerably more than enough water for a worldwide flood. 2) At the beginning of the Flood, the single antediluvian continent ripped apart rapidly.

Ice Age Civilization — Post by Michael J. Findley

Secularism teaches a very long, slow progress for humans. They believe that the discovery of fire, the wheel, and how to domesticate animals took millennia. With much trial and error, one culture very slowly evolved into another. The evidence, however, shows a very rapid, sudden, even explosive growth of population, civilization, and advanced technology from …
