1984? This has the whiff of 1884 about it, although the 19th C version would have had better (if, likely, even more confusing) graphics....

7000+ that's too may prophesies. I mean look at it. That's ridiculous.

That is literally the worst cartography I have ever seen.

Oddly mesmerizing. Something about peppering familiar cartography and world history with batshit prophetic nuttery and Web -1.0 formatting = can't look away. Thanks?

The Protestant Distribution and the Spirit of Capitalism Logistics?

Thank goodness! Finally a decent replacement for TimeCube:

The Science Of Carbon Dating. Pangea and the possible location of some asteroid impacts actually verify what we believe about the cause of the flood and the effects. We believe that the earth is 6000 years old, therefore we do not believe in the millions of years between events that is the basis of current scientific belief. So how do we reconcile those long periods of time and the timeline proposed by carbon dating?
Carbon dating can give a difference of ages of millions of years for different parts of the same body. Also, any sample that is carbon dated will be affected if the object has been submerged in water, because water changes the rate of decay of carbon 14! This is what we claim happened in the flood when the entire planet was submerged and subjected to forces that broke the foundations of the earth. Also, slight changes in the speed of light can also cause such enormous changes in radioactive decay so that dates calculated at millions of years are reduced to thousands of years. The speed of light is decreasing.
But can all these events happen in less than 6000 years?

So, starting from a central point in Eden, all continents could be reached in one year with easy travelling. That is a distance of 3200 miles (5100 km).

Wonderful stuff, packed with insights. Who knew that for a prehistoric tribe a 5000km migration was 'easy travelling'?

It's sad, how much human effort was put into this.

I feel like a very lazy and unproductive atheist.

As a former resident in the Balkans, I really dug the total absence of Slavs from the Ten Tribes of Europe! Also the lack of Avars and Pechangs. No Celts either! Nice to be all ethically cleansed in advance! (snarking here)

Oh and where are the Albanians? The first European convert was Lydia and she was Albanian!

"There were giants in the earth in those days." The long legs really helped out with that speedy migration. That and the riding Iguanodons.
