So, you read ancient Hebrew? I think the original parchments are Hebrew, of course it's probably several different dead languages. However, the originals are not the bible.

The real question is, which of the evidences can ONLY be attributed to design?

Until you have better evidence for design than for random mutation and natural selection, or any other naturalistic explanations for natural phenomena, design is out and the naturalistic explanation is in. Simple as that.

You write:
"BTW as a bonus, your source states that C14 dating places the origins of writing, state societies, and civilization, including Sumer and Egypt at 4500 years ago."
I just sent an email to the Smithsonian asking for a clarification in their dating graphic and that dating of writing and civilizations. I'll show it to you when I get a reply. Its been pretty much established that people in the Babylonian area were writing by 3,600+- to 3,100+- BC
We have known for a long time that Jericho dated back to around 9,000+- BC and the civilization of the Sumerians is dated to 4,500+- to 4,000+- BC.
Now Babylon is dated to approximately 2,286+- to 1,894+- BC and the Akkadians to 2,334+- BC
Mesopotamia continues to hold the honor as the area of the 'Birth of Civilization,'but not the 'Cradle of Humanity' honor.
The last I heard scientists were still of the opinion that Egypt's civilization began with the rise of Narmer around 3,100+- BC and the merging of upper and lower Egypt.
---
3100 BC would leave a gap of well over 500 years at least. But it's way better then 3900 BC.
The doublesided Narmer palet contains those strange animals with intertwined necks.
The same figurines and depictions have been found in Sumer.
The ancient Sudanese (sorry for not being more specific) were the fighting and traders and seafaring ones. That allegedly also made contact with Sumer, or vice versa since some pheleshet were not based in the Mediterenean but near the gulf of Akaba.
All dating is under review as far as i'm concerned.
The same goes for translations.

Sumerians (or should i say Ubaid) disappeared around 2000 BC (~4000 BP) according to conventional (Akkadian written) sources.

I'm offroad again this time following Lapita pottery:

Lapita the name

Lapita pottery has been misunderstood from the day it was discovered when an archaeologist picked up a piece of pottery from the bottom of his pit. Some natives arriving on the scene exclaimed "Xaapeta!" Which means "He dug a pit!" Unfortunately the scientist thought the natives were getting excited about the piece of rubble he was holding in his hand and decided that the exclamation "Xaapeta" was the name of the culture the pottery represented. Unfortunately he misheard them and decided the word said was Lapita, and through his "scientific" paper, the Lapita name has stuck.



There's that too, Tyler. Same goes for the bible.

The error is in the bible so it is a biblical error.

Dogen, Word and Tangled Bank (in case he still casts a casual eye)
http://users.on.net/~mkfenn/page6.htm

One does not necessarily have to agree with all conclusions, but it is a compelling read.

Recall the read heads in Arizona and or Canada.
As well as rock-motives spread from ancient Sweden all the way to west-Africa and Russia.
Mammoths did a return migration from North-America (natively known as turtleland)so why not people.

At the end it starts wobling confusing melanesia and some polynesians; with Atlantis (which might be why peple steer a stark course away from some findings) and missing the fact that Berbers Tamazight speak Urdu very well and were thus either trading like forever or moved in from those regions. And that Berber is not much different from the old Ashanti sahara symbols used.
Archeology has indeed established that druids could move freely even if wars were going on. Even decided on when to war or not. They had a network
But now we can read what was written on the rocks(provided someone still translates to the local meaning).

And i totally forgot who was interested in the stone carved birds found in North America.
It was in a discussion Evo. v. crea. on quartz with Subduction Zone and i think Fossil Bob involved.
Well they resurface in this paper too.
