The Ancients Could Have Moved the Saturn V Rocket!

Job 38:36
"Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?"

We look at Egypt's pyramids and wonder how the ancients built these great structures. Such questions are really about the source of man's intelligence and creativity. Were intelligence and creativity created within us by an ultimately intelligent and creative God, or are these a result of blind evolutionary forces?

In the ancient city that the Greeks called Heliopolis, the Romans converted an ancient Greek temple into a temple for Jupiter. The original temple must have amazed even the Roman builders. It is 2,500 feet long, making it one of the largest stone structures in the world. Twenty-six feet above the foundation of this structure are three of the largest stones ever moved by man. These limestone blocks measure 10 feet by 13 feet by 60 feet long. They weigh 1.2 million pounds each, three times the size of any stone used in the pyramids!

Not only were the stones raised 26 feet into the air, but also they were moved from a quarry that is three-quarters of a mile away. At the quarry is an even larger stone weighing two million pounds that would have crushed any logs used to roll it to the temple. The first time in recorded history that man ever moved anything so heavy was when NASA moved the giant Saturn V rocket to the launch pad on its now-famous giant tracked vehicle.

The reason that these ancient people could have moved the Saturn V rocket is that intelligence comes from our Creator, not chance evolution.

Prayer: 
Dear Father, I thank You that You didn't use evolution to create me. Amen.
