One theory is that God is a "great" munipulator of matter. The popular theory is that the earth was formed per the galactic evolution. Since it would probably be very hard for early man to co-exist with dinosaurs, they had to go. There is a lot of evidence that they were destroyed by a large meteor in a global extinction event. Therefore, God made the heavens and the earth to fit mans' needs. In human history prior to Christ, human technology was pretty much the same for a couple of thousand years. Never expanding beyond the Indus river and north of present day Italy. Empires came and went, but God was always there in one way or the other. There were other gods (Greek & Roman) that were prominate for 1500 years. But the one God was there also. After Christ and the advent of Christianity, human civilization took off like wild fire. (Christ said before his asension to heaven, that the day would come quickly). In the first 800 years a Christian empire was born and the old Roman Empire was cut in half then called the Byzantine. The Holy Roman Empire engulfed Europe, the Arabs had northern Africa. The next 700 years, man had expanded his exploration to the New World, and the modern age began. From 1500 until now, no one can deny the things that man has accomplished in 499 years. Remember that Egyptian dynasty periods really didn't evolve in 2500 years! Too long. There had to be a Munuipulated circumstance to change things rapidly. In 1900, cars were beginning to come around. We already had the telephone, wireless radio's, and electricity in homes. In 1945, we split the atom, created mass destruction weapons. In the course of 50 years, our technology has rapidly progressed. Looking at past history makes me wonder of a "divine" munipulator. I think that some evolutionary theories are true, but when it comes to man's history, some of these theories are out the window. Are we getting smarter? Yes. To our Something is coming to a head here, and I believe that it will be soon. another forum subject....Whew!
