Why Are You?

An Ancient Concrete Floor

Genesis 2:19
"And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof."

A large, sophisticated concrete floor has recently been discovered in China. The floor dates to a period that, not long ago, evolutionists called the "Stone Age."

The concrete floor, discovered in northwest China, extends the record of technological man far beyond any age imagined by evolutionists. Concrete of excellent quality was widely used in the Ancient Concrete FloorRoman Empire. However, according to the evolutionary scenario, when the Chinese floor was built, man had just perfected stone axes and arrowheads.

The concrete floor measures 144 square feet. The concrete itself is a greenish black. However, scientists report that when struck with an iron object, it gives the same hollow sound as modern concrete. The concrete is similar to today's and includes silicon and aluminum. Sand, stone, broken pottery and bones were mixed with the concrete. Obviously, so-called "Stone Age" man was involved in much more industry than some scientists had thought!

Scientists who believe the Bible's view of history are not surprised by this discovery. They know that every human being, from the very first one, has been completely human and quite intelligent. Imagine, on his first day of existence, Adam was smart enough to understand the animals and give them meaningful names! To a man with such understanding of God's creation, concrete would be a simple technology. The question really is: Are we as smart today as Adam, who knew the Creator face-to-face?

Prayer: 
Father, thank You for the gift of intelligence. Compared to Adam, my knowledge of You is poor. Help me to make Your Word the only true guide in my life. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
