I remember hearing on discovery channel that if they sun-baked the bricks (which the bible says they DID), the tower of babel would have been possible.
Eden is historically accepted as an area between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers if I am remembering correctly.
My answer is yes, I believe they roughly follow historically accepted facts.
So, you believe the world is 6,000 years old? and about 2,500 BC there was a Global Flood that destoyed everything on the Earth?
fossils aren't necessarily as old as suggested.
When people say world, do they mean just the earth, or the entire universe. Also, you do know that fossil ages are only the tip of the iceberg.
Do you know how ridiculous it is to say the universe is 6000 yrs old. Take for example the Crab Nebula which is in the constellation Taurus. It is 6,000 (actually a little more) light years away. That means that the light was emitted from the nebula in 6,000 BCE. Meaning that the light we see today is 6,000 years old.
Now look at something 2.5 million light years away. Again, the light we see is 2.5 million years old. As is the case in the Andromeda's Galaxy.
(also, if you look out your window the sunlight you see is 8 minutes old. It takes 8 minutes for the light from the Sun to reach the Earth. So it would clearly make sense that the same would hold true for more distant stars. the more distant, the longer it takes for the light to reach earth)
By measuring distant stars and galaxies (and using a series of measurement techniques) it's easy to see that universe is a hell of a lot older than 6,000 yrs old.
Also, the HUDF has taken photographs of the earliest galaxies (which formed shortly after the big bang)
Which are very impressive pictures, I might add.
