Scientists spend millions, come to same conclusions as BiblePDFPrintE-mail

I found these two articles on the internet, published on the same day, and they really spoke to me about how much our world has turned its back on God to be so blinded to the truth of the Scriptures.

New research carried out by scientists at the Imperial College of London has revealed how the island of Great Britain was severed from continental Europe during a catastrophic flood. Scientists believe that the countries of England and France were once connected by a land bridge at the Dover straits. Some time in the distant past, a massive amount of water poured over this land bridge, dissolving the chalk and permanently separating Great Britain from the mainland. For the first time, sonar recordings have revealed deep gouges in the sea bed at the Dover straits, which could only have been created by a massive amount of water over a very short period of time. 

Quote: "The images detail deep grooves and streamlined features, the hallmarks of landforms that have been gouged by large bodies of fast-moving water. At its peak, it is believed that the megaflood could have lasted several months, discharging an estimated one million cubic metres of water per second. And from the way some features have been cut, it is likely there were at least two distinct phases to the flooding.

If they read the Bible, they would know exactly how long this megaflood lasted...

Genesis 7:24 
And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days (five months).

They talk about megafloods lasting months, and yet they deny the fact that a global flood ever took place. I find it a very sad thing indeed that scientists can spend millions of pounds on research, only to come to the same conclusions that were written in the Bible around 4000 years ago. In another news article, new research has proven that human race originated in Africa. A study on some 6000 human skulls from across the world has revealed that variations in their shapes and sizes decrease as distance from the African subcontinent increases. This shows that mankind originated in Africa, and migrated outwards.

Quote: "Manica and colleagues wrote in the journal Nature that variations in skull size and shape decreased the further a skull was away from Africa, just like variations in DNA. The decrease reflects the fact that, while the original African population was stable and varied, only a small number of people embarked on each stage of the multi-step migration out of Africa. This effectively created a series of "bottlenecks", which reduced diversity. The highest level of variation in skull types was seen in southeastern Africa, the generally accepted cradle of mankind.

And again, if they read the Bible they would know exactly where mankind originated from...

Genesis 8:4 
And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat (on the Turkish border).

The question the evolutionists must ask themselves is, if we have been evolving for millions of years, why is earth's population so low? If you plot a graph beginning with earth's present population of 6 billion souls, and work backwards in time using the census records of ancient civilizations, you will find you start running out of people around 3000 BC. Evolutionists must also ask the question, why did people bother to migrate out of the Middle East? And might different languages have something to do with these "bottlenecks"? And how did all the different languages evolve if we all lived in the same place a relatively short time ago? Once again, the Bible holds the answer to man's questions...

Genesis 11:6-8
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

The Bible states that just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man (Luke 17:26). The people scoffed at Noah when he warned them of God's coming judgement upon their sins. They didn't believe such a thing as a global flood could happen. Scientists are now proving - whether they know it or not - that such an event did occur just like the Bible states. The Scriptures also warn us that just as the previous civilization was destroyed by a flood, our civilization will be destroyed by fire (2nd Peter 3:7). Today mankind mocks the idea of a judgement, while possessing the capability of destroying this world many times over. Like in Noah's day, there is an ark of salvation - the Lord Jesus Christ. Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation today, and when the judgement comes, you'll be lifted high.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
