FACT, like it or not.
The Cyrus Cylinder, symbol of Persian tolerance, heads to US
The 2,600 year old Cyrus Cylinder, a promise of tolerance from the ancient Persian King, is heading to the US for the first time.(Peterson, S. CSM. WEB.)3/3/2013
The ancient Cyrus Cylinder is surrounded by cameras at a send-off ceremony to see it travel for the first time to the United States from the British Museum in London on February 19, 2013. One of the most iconic objects of the ancient world and sometimes called the world's first human rights charter, the baked-clay cylinder with cuneiform script is the declaration by the Persian King Cyrus the Great about his peaceful capture of Babylon, and his order that all peoples should be free to return to their lands and worship as they pleased.

Like it or NOT.
We have found several 1000 clay tablets in what was Sumeria from a time 4000 years before the Egyptians figured out which end of a goat to milk... These tablets tell us all kinds of stuff and we find many places mentioned in those texts... We find mention on pots and other artifacts that show names and places written in those tablets...

So I guess since those parts are correct I can take for granted Humans were genetically created as workers by space aliens from the planet Niburu to dig gold right?

(quoted below)

The Cyrus Cylinder (c.539-530 B.C.E.) is an ancient artifact consisting of a declaration of religious reform issued by the emperor Cyrus II (the Great), the founder and ruler of the Persian Empire, and inscribed in Babylonian (Akkadian) cuneiform on a clay cylinder. It was discovered in 1879 by the Assyro-British archaeologist Hormuzd Rassam in the foundations of the Esagila (i.e., the Marduk temple of Babylon) and is kept today in the British Museum in London.[1]

The Cyrus Cylinder is among the most significant ancient texts to provide independent support of the historicity of one of the central events of biblical history: the return of the Jews to Jerusalem under the sponsorship of Cyrus the Great to rebuild the Temple. While Cyrus credited the inspiration of the Babylonian deity Marduk for his policy of religious reforms and restoration of the temples of lesser local deities to their "eternal abodes," the Bible sees Cyrus as the agent of the Hebrew God Yahweh. The Book of Chronicles even quotes a supposed edict of Cyrus in which the king names Yahweh rather than Marduk as inspiring his actions. The Book of Isaiah, however, specifically mentions that Cyrus did not acknowledge Yahweh, yet refers to Cyrus as a "Messiah"—God's anointed—called by name by God to achieve a great destiny.

Because of its commitment to religious tolerance and its policy of ending some forms of forced labor, the Cyrus Cylinder has sometimes been described as the "first charter of human rights," although it reflects a long tradition in Mesopotamia where kings began their reigns with declarations of reforms.[2]

Notice how they all contain pert near the same information....

And again... So what.... I can find a dozen books that speak of places and people that exist... I don't automatically say that magic dragons flamed the country side because those books mentioned names points in greater Britteny .... I can give you 20 plus links to writings of Greek towns, cities and people that also mention Zeus, Apollo and a Demigod on a flying horse... Using your reasoning because those places in those writings exist then Mount Olympus actually was filled with assorted Gods....

It helps to be able to discern the possible realities, often scientifically studied, from imaginary, ignorant depictions based on nothing but ones own merely CONdescending, self serving opinion.

(And Greek Mythology has been historically pretty clear in descriptives, that such things in which may have been "believed" upon, were not necessarily tangibly "seen".)

Quite trying to DUHM everything down to mere "black and white" just to try ad insult others intelligence to gratify yourself--because that is NOT reality. Even idiots realize, there's a whole big, spectrum of OTHER colors in between.

and no using MY reasoning,(not what you state to be my reasoning) would be that there were people that believed such to be true, but that wouldn't have made such especially true.

Just as with the Cyrus cylinder, an artifact of history that lends credence to fact that there were people of the Persian Empire times, that may have believed in a code of Civil Rights.

Exactly.

(no debating Komodo dragons are more evolutionary predispositioned to places like...oh....say the Rinca and Flores islands, although currently now documented as dwindling in population due to modern civilization development).

But still, WOW, look at the size of those creatures!!

Want to learn about the bible or religion? Visit a church...

Want the education you paid for? Go to your public school...

It's not the state's job to teach you religion and faith.

Fortunately you live in a country where you can choose to do this, or not do this....
It's just that simple.

Obviously I didn't dumb it down enough in this case... Here I'll try again....

Books says there is a God that has magical abilities, book says a bunch of towns and rulers exist, we find evidence of some of those rulers and towns, you use the notation of finding some of those towns and rulers to bolster a Belief of a God that has magical abilities..... That's Goofy...

The God of the Bible is never referred to as a magician, he is called the creator! Big difference!

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk being called sentimental. To reach out to another is to risk involvement. To expose feelings is to risk showing your true self. To place your ideas and your dreams before them is to risk being called naive. To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying. To hope is to risk despair, and to try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing and becomes nothing. He [or she] may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live. Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave, he's forfeited his freedom.

Only the person who risks is truly free."

And yet christians want to overlook the evil of the god in the bible andhave created a "new" god that just loves every one.
If the christian cult believed that the bible was real they would not pick and choose and ignore what their god said

Do you think the many civilizations that have wrotten historically were just "lying.making stuff up" about everything that has ever been written?
Do you think 2000 years from now, what future generations may find in places such as the Library of Congress, will be IGNORANTLY be deemed as lies, fantasies, ignorantly dubbed as nothing but fallacies of past civilizations?
Because when you post such nonsense, that is how you sound.
The Neolithic age in China can be traced back to between 12,000 and 10,000 BC.[6]

Early evidence for proto-Chinese millet agriculture is radiocarbon-dated to about 7000 BC.[7] Farming gave rise to the Jiahu culture (7000 to 5800 BC). At Damaidi in Ningxia, 3,172 cliff carvings dating to 6000–5000 BC have been discovered, "featuring 8,453 individual characters such as the sun, moon, stars, gods and scenes of hunting or grazing." These pictographs are reputed to be similar to the earliest characters confirmed to be written Chinese.[8][9] Excavation of a Peiligang culture site in Xinzheng county, Henan, found a community that flourished in 5,500–4,900 BC, with evidence of agriculture, constructed buildings, pottery, and burial of the dead.[10] With agriculture came increased population, the ability to store and redistribute crops, and the potential to support specialist craftsmen and administrators.[11] In late Neolithic times, the Yellow River valley began to establish itself as a center of Yangshao culture (5000 BC to 3000 BC), and the first villages were founded; the most archaeologically significant of these was found at Banpo, Xi'an.[12] Later, Yangshao culture was superseded by the Longshan culture, which was also centered on the Yellow River from about 3000 BC to 2000 BC.

The early history of China is obscured by the lack of written documents from this period, coupled with the existence of later accounts that attempted to describe events that had occurred several centuries previously. In a sense, the problem stems from centuries of introspection on the part of the Chinese people, which has blurred the distinction between fact and fiction in regards to this early history.

Sounds like your theory that god created the earth 5000 years ago is proven wrong
