Format: Hardcover
From the title, the premise of the book is that God created man perfect, including his intellect. From the very beginning of time, mankind has possessed many creative and intellectual abilities that far surpass even the most learned in our own time.

But this isn't what the evolutionists would have us believe. In order for their "theory" to hold true, man would have to evolve from an unintelligent ape into a supreme fount of knowledge. This isn't what we see when we examine ancient history.

The Genius of Ancient Man: Evolution's Nightmare is an extremely well-researched textbook on the intelligence and accomplishments of ancient man.

An important concept related to this intelligence, is the fact that it was there before man was dispersed at the Tower of Babel. We know this because the same abilities are seen all over the world in all different cultures. For instance, several cultures around the world have succeeded in building towers and structures that boggle the minds of present day scholars. These cultures didn't have Google to look up "how to build a ziggurat" and there were no YouTube videos to teach "construction methods of ancient pyramids." This was information that was passed down to the cultures from their ancestors...their common ancestors.

It was also at the Tower of Babel that Satan showed his desire to counterfeit the things of the Lord. One of the first counterfeits was the tower itself. But there have been many, many more counterfeits over time.

I just spent hours today pouring over The Genius of Ancient Man by Don Landis. The subject matter is just fascinating! This books sets out to support the Biblical position of man being created intelligently, and of Babel being the origin from where people spread out across the earth.

People with an evolutionary mindset believe that man started out simple and has progressively gotten smarter and more advanced. Even Christians typically assume that we are the most advanced that any civilization has been since the beginning of time. Mr. Landis sets out to change our mind on the subject.

He explains how Adam and Eve were the smartest people ever on the earth because they were created first, perfectly, in God's image, and with no mutations or sickness like we have now. They also had communion with God, so they probably had access to infinitely more knowledge than we do. After they sinned,
man's abilities and intellect slowly decreased as the fallen world took a toll on their bodies and minds. Mr. Landis speculates that by the time of the flood, ancient man may have been very, very advanced (there was about 1500 years between creation and the flood, after all, and think about all that we have been able to accomplish in just the past couple of hundred years!) There is no way to prove this, because everything was wiped out in the flood and then Noah and his family had to start from scratch again.

Mr. Landis goes on to show example after example of how ancient civilizations in different areas of the world shared similarities early on, pointing to a common starting place (Babel). He also shows many examples of advanced things that researchers have found, but cannot explain because they do not think that ancient man was very advanced or intelligent.

Format: Hardcover
"Evolution's Nightmare"

Evidences and commonalities explored from ancient man around the globe!
* Why structures echoing the Tower of Babel have been recreated on almost every continent and major culture
* What artifacts and archaeology, technology and innovation, really reveal about the origin of mankind
* Why many biblical symbols (rainbows, human sacrifice, mountains, the Son/ sun worship) were, and continue to be, distorted in pagan religious practices
* What the historical record reveals about Satan's "counterfeit" of God's plan for humanity

All over the world there are similar findings of ancient religions, cities and towers, world travel, advanced astronomy, and civilized government. Over the course of two years, a team of researchers from Jackson Hole Bible College has worked to bring together the different pieces of the convoluted mystery and history of ancient man.

Hours of researching, trips to various sites around North and Central America, visits to museums, and meetings with experts have provided the team with an overwhelming amount of evidence for the intelligence of these early innovators. A jumble of anomalies and magnificent structures continue to confound archaeology and anthropology today, yet as the dots are connected, one finds history as described in the biblical record."
