Your research has been fruitful. You must now know that God provided the historians with the truth. For it is through God, the Father, that the Son, Jesus, was sent, through acceptance of the Spirit, man (made of God) is brilliant. Let us all Shine.
I wrote an answer to another HP question:
'Can any religionist out there answer the Epicurean Paradox? This goes as follows:-'
That addresses your Comment more fully.
Just saw the Historicist blog is refuted.
Wow, this is an unexpected spin on the subject, but I agree, our true original origin will forever elude us. The thought of God creating man seems too simple for how complex we are; however, with current genetic engineering... anything is possible.
When the physical world is behind you, you know. For as it has been written, so it shall be. Every human is on a one-way trip from their beginning. How they traverse it is their choice. Those choosing the path outlined by Jesus is everlasting.
Ah, yes, in the words of Aerosmith, Life's a journey not a destination!!!

Hi Borsia, in some ways I agree. The evolution of man can be seen through many centuries. But a crashed space craft with a handful of survivors over 15,000 years ago. Priority - 1 survival. Technology? A rifle without bullets is just a club.
But a wheel is still a wheel and metal has always been better than stone, etc, etc, survival right.
Some technology would fall by the wayside, though bullets are easy to make, but basics would only evolve.
A wheel is only as good as its function, if there is no requirement for that function it is nothing more than a round object. Metal? Finding, extracting, smelting, and forming? I think food and shelter would be more important.
Then explain why once we did invent the wheel it has been with us?
Food has to be transported, best on wheels, smelting metal isn't hard once you know how. Again as soon as we invented it we kept improving it.
Wish if you like there is nothing to it.

Hi TA, just suppose God created man on another planet. The arrogance of man destroys that world. God provides passage of a few to a new world, but destroys the evil technology for man to start afresh. Maybe Mars is the next step. Just a thought!
Hi lumen2light, supposing is the right of anyone. but, that right also permits one to believe that there was no prior planet. God was the great creator of the earth from nothing. God made mankind in his image so that moral man shall rule the world.

It would be cooler if we categorically knew our origin, without it there will always be those who question both religious, scientific and any other theories.
