Creation Today’s facebook page and their sub-page Creation Kids Club (about their new book series) liked my own facebook page today! So I went over to visit them and checked out all the places they liked. One of their other “likes” was a guy named Aaron Judkins who writes Biblical fiction and has his own WordPress blog at Man vs Archaeology. I wanted to link to his post about giants, but there just isn’t enough verifiable proof that these things are real for me to risk my reputation on.
People have been hoaxing each other probably since the beginning of time (maybe that’s how Cain got Abel to walk off alone with him….). Most of the time we’re happy to find someone to trust and accept them, but that can be dangerous.
I’m sure (although I’ve never asked them) that one of the reasons that Answers in Genesis and the Institute for Creation Research don’t talk about Ice Age people and giants much is to avoid this problem. Even though the Bible, God’s own book, talks about giants, the archaeological evidence to “prove” they were real is too unsure. We just don’t want to give the opposition anything to use to suggest that we are gullible loonies.
As you know, there is plenty of evidence of strong, smart people who built great stone works before the Ice Age ended. Their coastal cities were often submerged by higher sea levels. But if the only websites I can find that talk about a specific place can’t give me a professional link mentioning it, I’m not going to pass on that info to you. Usually, the Evolutionists will mention these places some, even though they tend to explain away how these things got here.
The other problem with human fossils is that if an Evolutionist finds something that would help us, they aren’t going to report it. If they do report it, they will be sure to slant their findings to support their beliefs. They will also do everything they can to make sure that a Creation Scientist never gets to examine the evidence for themselves. The beginning of the book Buried Alive by Jack Cuozzo reads like a spy thriller because of what happened when the French museum he visited found out what he was doing with their human fossils (no he didn’t hurt them).
On the other hand, if a Creation Scientist were to dig up a fossil or a footprint, all the Evolutionists have to do is ignore it. Then they can claim that it’s never been written up in a scientific journal and so it can’t be real. Ian Juby’s interview on the Creation Today show talks about this.
John MacKay’s Australian group works to dig up or purchase regular animal and plant fossils around the world that show they must have formed quickly and disastrously. That way there are some fossils available to Creation Scientists to study without these problems. He just did an interview on the Creation Today show that is quite interesting and briefly talks about this.
It would be awesome if we find verifiable bones or other evidence of gigantic people on earth. But even if we never do, I’m still going to believe God’s Word and cheer for David as we read about his little sling against the giant Goliath:
And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span [six normal man’s elbow-to-fingertips, plus the width of a hand].
And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield:
but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth;
that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
I Samuel 17:4,43,45,46
