How old are the pyramids carbon dating
Following a strict biblical chronology, Egyptian civilization cannot predate creation, nor can the pyramids be pre-Flood constructions.This article (although lengthy) does not attempt to solve any of the seeming problems in aligning Egyptian chronologies with the biblical text with any great detail.
Also, without some background or a framework to help the Christian gain some perspective on the issues, it is difficult to be discerning about any information that claims to solve the many mysteries that Egypt presents—and there are dozens of those from Christian researchers alone!Hopefully this article will help us realize that the issue is not as cut and dried as the secular community sometimes presents it.Nor does Egyptian civilization falsify biblical history as the skeptics would like us to think.Egypt’s ancient culture is one of the most popular and well-preserved in the world, and it is one of the most visited tourist destinations due to the pyramids and the wealth of historical antiquities found there.In addition, there are thousands of Egyptian artifacts on display in museums across the world, which have been seen by millions.Egyptian chronology can be a challenging subject for biblical creationists.
That’s because the secular, majority view about these chronologies extends further back than an objective reading of the biblical chronogenealogies allows for creation: a little over 6,000 years ago.
These chronologies are hotly debated among Christians and secularists alike, with the consensus being increasingly challenged.
Moreover, some of the incredible Egyptian monuments like the great pyramids on the Giza Plateau have dates ascribed to them that would have them being built before the earth-reshaping Flood of Noah’s time around 4,500 years ago.
Among these displays, one can look at busts or statues (sometimes amazingly lifelike) of past pharaohs and their wives, as well as everyday objects used by these fascinating people.
Combined with the wealth of writing (hieroglyphics) left behind, a vivid picture of ancient Egypt emerges to capture our imaginations.
The most popular and widely read book in human history, the Bible, also has a lot to say about Egypt.
