Part two of a three part series
I believe many events in history actually happened much earlier than conventional wisdom would have us believe, I also believe the pyramids are much older than assumed by the experts.
The planet earth was much different in the time before the last ice age. The earth was not only covered with several different atmospheres, like it is today, it was also covered with a canopy of water vapor that shielded it from outside radiation.
The greenhouse effect created a planet that was much more fertile than it is today, with the plentiful amount of rainfall, animals and vegetation grew much more rapidly and larger than they are today.
Often times humans grew to be 10 feet tall or larger, and lived for hundreds of years, many animals also grew larger than they do today.
In those times, the earth was also much flatter than it is today.
But things were about to change, it was probably brought on by two events, man’s fall from grace, and or natural evolution. The build up of the ice caps was about to change the world in many ways, it was only a matter of time.
Noah was a God fearing man, who by his actions, was in tune with the universe and did communicate with the God Force or Supreme Intelligence.
Because of this, God did inform Noah of coming events and gave him over one hundred years to prepare for the flood by building an ark to save his family and the animals.
It is mentioned in the bible the dimensions of the ark was measured in cubits.
A cubit is the measurement of a mans forearm from elbow to wrist, because people were larger in those days, the cubit would have been larger, thus making the ark larger than we believe today.
People were bigger, thus, the cubit was longer than thought today.
The ark was constructed on the one to six ratio, as ships are today. The ships are six times longer than they are wide making them less susceptible to sinking, because of this, the ark could have withstood two hundred foot waves.
It was written to be constructed of Gopher wood, which resembles the plywood of today, the layers were joined with something resembling tar.
No sails or other forms of propulsion were required, all the ark had to do was float, it needed no other form of propulsion.
Whatever the true cause of the flood, the ice caps were about to melt, and with it mass changes would come to the earth.
Some believe at that time the earth was struck by an ice meteor, which would not only have caused mass destruction, but added billions of gallons of water into the earth environment.
Noah had been forewarned, he was ready when God brought the animals to him.
Noah gathered two of each kind, he didn’t gather each species, there was no need. Because of changes in climate and environment,the different species could once again develop in a couple hundred years.
It has been known for quite some time, when new species develop, sometimes they can be quite different that the original and no longer be compatible with the former species.
Alaskan rabbits can’t reproduce with Florida rabbits, but MInnesota rabbits can reproduce with both Florida and Alaska rabbits.
In all likelihood, he would have gathered baby animals, which makes sense, God delivered them to him to preserve the animals, not food.
The young animals would have been able to live longer, thus enabling them to produce more offspring before dying.
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America as well as the aborigines of Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has published several books about his adventures.
