[In response to how Egyption and Chinese written history preceed 6000 years]

It is also a known fact that some countries faked the dates of their writtings because they wanted to be known as the oldest peoples on the earth. Or the first to write, or discover things.

Occums's razor disagrees.

The fact that ancient documents and inscriptions are dated by a variety of methods makes this claim look silly.

Because the ancient Egyptians and Chinese obviously knew of each others' existence and were constantly trying to one-up each other at that time.

Yea, like the old testament taters that lived for 900 years.

How did they fake the Carbon decay in their documents and artefacts, though? Therein lies the rub.

How the fuck do you fake the age of something when you don't know anything about the time in a society on the other end of the world? that hasn't even existed yet?

I'll bet ikester has a coin from Solomon inscribed with the date 945 BC too.

2/24/2007 4:00:03 PM

Yes. The wrote 24/2/-6500 BC in the top left hand corner of their documents. Foolproof dating method that.

A known fact? Yet you offer no evidence. How very fundy of you.

It's a known fact that ikester is full of shit. It is also a known fact that much of the history from the bible is made up and that Israel was never the major power that the bible says it was.

It's a well-known fact that Fundie nuts will say anything to try to support their religious delusions and try to discredit reason.

Except you ignore the fact that most of the research gets done by foreigners who have no such interest.
IE: Harvard university archaologists in Egypt, Cambridge university archaologists in Egypt, etc etc etc...

And most ancient peoples did not date most of their documents.

Plus the fact that both civilizations record events that DO in fact take place in deep antiqity.

I'm afraid your claim is refuted by fact.

\"or discover things\"
The only thing ikester is likely to discover is chronic masturbation.

What about prehistoric artefacts that date back 10,000 years. How did ancient humans fake radioactive decay?

Excellent inkster, now we are getting somewhere, maybe incorrectly, but it is a start. Now let's apply that same kind of critical thinking and questioning attitude to, say, a religious tome that some people claim to be of about the same age, and use as a science and history book, say the Bible!

And the civilisation you are championing is exempt from an identical accusation because...?

Aw, poor little white people! =(

Y'know, it would really be easier to just give up...

Where do these people hide when they aren't online? I know a fair number of people without much education, and none of them make outlandish claims about subjects they know little or nothing about. Of course, the people I know have jobs, or they fish, or trap, or otherwise function in the real world.

\"our gawd is older than your gawd! And the bible was written in the king's english!\"

How could they fake dates on YOUR calendars if it didn't even exist yet? Not to mention they didn't know about it for centuries after it did...

Bee: Right in your face. They just don't seem quite as extreme until/unless actually given a reason to voice their faith. Probably because they assume everyone else to think exactly as they do; thus the anger every time someone turns out not to.

You can't know that billy bob over there believes in slaughtering innocents because they were born the \"wrong color\" unless you see him in action or preaching it. On the net though there's so many voicing their opinions that they're bound to crawl out of their rocks.

But ikester7579, what if it is your holy book that is the fake?

2/24/2007 6:04:55 PM

Where do these people hide when they aren't online?

Under a rock, perhaps?

2/24/2007 7:11:55 PM

Old Viking

Sure. I used the old \"fake the date to look older\" trick so my Social Security payments would start sooner.
