Yes, it's a problem and a challenge.

> The God's are laughing at us from Mount Olympus,

No, the gods are here, on this board, trying to pat us on the head. They continually tell us of their amazing "priceless" discoveries and their expertise.

But ya know what's funny, the real experts who pop in here don't announce their expertise or their priceless discoveries. Their knowledge is shown by the info they post, not by their declarations and they don't hide behind totally fake names. Like John Carnahan who nicely told MDaines he/she was full of shit. He simply said "As an Assyriologist....".

Well no one had better look to texts beyond what - 400 b.c. There seems to be some invisible cut-off date for texts that are believable. Amazing how the PT's are accepted as having occurred in real life, as having unquestionable historic accuracy. But go further back to stories that contradict evolution, be it social or geographic or human evolution, and the stories become myths that no one should give credence to.

The undertone is our indoctrination with Uniformitarianism. If a story does not abide by Uniformitarianism, it is to be shredded. If the story involves time spans that we have not witnessed in recent history, it's shredded. If it involves any type of ET or culture that would be superior to our modern ultimate accomplishments, it's shredded. We are not witness to a comet wiping out a continent, therefore it could never have happened. Our societies are so easily threatened by anything out of the norm.

Ancient man was an idiot, he believed in gods, he made up all sorts of fantastic tales to explain the ordinary. We can't believe a word of it because he was too stupid, so incapable of relating facts and actual events, and what he did relate has become so distorted none of the original message remains intact because no one cared about accuracy. None of the ancient authors cared about copying texts accurately, none could translate another language accurately, and none were as intelligent or sophisticated as we are today. Isn't that the underlying premise?

On this board science is the new Mt Olympus. We dare not disagree with the gods. If we do, we're labeled as idiotic as ancient man.

Now that's a rant. Bet you guys are wishing I didn't have time to post.
