A highly developed city burst onto the scene about 4,000 to 6,000 years ago in the evolutionary time frame. Early indications reveal a society rich in trade, copper metallurgy and pottery production but supposedly, the wheel hadn’t been invented yet…
“Covering about 31 acres, Tell Zeidan was situated where the Balikh River joins the Euphrates River in modern-day Syria. The location was at the crossroads of major, ancient trade routes in Mesopotamia that followed the course of the Euphrates River valley. The Ubaid period lasted from about 5300 to 4000 B.C.”
“This enigmatic period saw the first development of widespread irrigation, agriculture, centralized temples, powerful political leaders and the first emergence of social inequality as communities became divided into wealthy elites and poorer commoners,” said Gil Stein, director of the Oriental Institute and a leader of the expedition.”
The dating of 6000 years is questionable. What about it being an enigmatic period? It’s not enigmatic at all, in fact if one follows Biblical history after Babel, it’s quite logical. Intelligent humans in a complex society spread out and build cities rapidly. Observational data shows humans can migrate at a pretty fast rate. The funny part of this discovery and it goes along the line of overusing the hypothesis first method which they rely very heavy on, how do they know the wheel in this particular society wasn’t invented yet? They still have a ways to go as far as uncovering the ancient city of Tell Zeidan.
Evolutionists have a real challenge on their hands, falsifications of simplicity is the norm in other fields in this story but in this chapter, you have a society all of a sudden burst on the scene before urban cities came into existence with anatomically correct modern humans who were able to organize their own habitats, decorate themselves, cook with fire and even play music, but for one to two million years straight they could only hunt, gather and dwell in a cave before an idea of planting came to mind. This is when according to the evolutionary time line, cities appeared with irrigation, commerce, metallurgy and a stratified society.
There is a pattern, just like in other areas of science, for example, the Human genome. Evolutionary scientists held to the idea (hypothesis first) was that signalling pathways were fairly simple and linear but what they have been finding is networks of complex information!
Ancient man was found to be more complex, now we see an ancient city more complex than they ever imagined, one would think they would expect more complexity with their discoveries…This is what happens with an unbelief in God’s word, you get a confusing story that makes no sense whatsoever in light of the evidence.
