Christianity, Creationism, Civilization, Development, Science and Evolution

Those who stayed in the remotest of villages – who speak their own language, living in ways to make do with what they have, where did they come from?

Science does don’t say definitively where language comes from. The scriptures say it’s the event of the tower of babel.

But there is something about remote villages, languages and the origin of life.

Science has the last 10,000 years as anchor points of how humans spread. The scriptures has around 6,000.

Science disputes creationism – mostly because of archaeological evidence dating hundreds of thousands and millions of years.

The broader view of the origin of the world sometimes erases focus on the spread and evolution of humans in communities and villages.

Ancient Egypt from the Book of Genesis was an advanced civilization. There have also been people and places mentioned before them showing some form of adaptable living progress.

But there was a point where people would have spread, maybe gone to new lands or from some dispute, then others would move further away and then go again.

Before the 20th century, there were so many villages around the world, so deeply isolated, so disconnected – it is useful to think of how they got there.

Normally, everyone found a way to cook something. People knew of agriculture. There was a way to use fire to see in the dark. There were words in motion or music – that got to people. There was some art, maybe people using fingers to draw on the floor, and then using tools to drill into rocks or walls.

There was an understanding of the need for water. There was some form of spirituality or shaman. There were housing forms. There was a way they understood procreation. There were traditions they developed. There was an interpretation of weather events. There was an understanding of illness. There was language.

There is the possibility that the diversity of people that were seen in Genesis – went through the world, for many years, establishing in groups on lands, especially after language was multiplied.

It is likely that in the birth of offspring – emerged ethnic diversity from the Book of Genesis. The way of the early world would have made unacceptableness unlikely if an offspring came, of blended colour.

Though science has explanations of the colour spectrum and skin pigments across races, sometimes, certain faces and colours are too wildly different – requiring the need to seek further angles.

How did imagination emerge? Imagination was mostly natural – in earlier times, but the difference in imagination made ancient civilization different from ancient places of seclusion.

Was imagination a similar factor to differences of peoples and languages?

Also, how come some remote places adapted similarly to other remote places without ever meeting?

There are lots of events about the emergence of people – useful to see further into creation.

[Genesis 10:25, And Eber had two sons: the name of the one was Peleg because in his time the peoples of the earth became separate, and his brother’s name was Joktan.]
