The bible gives the time period from the flood to the birth of Abraham as 296 years.

Are we to believe in just less than 300 years, that from eight people that are supposed to have survived the flood, the Sumerian, Akkadian and the ancient Egyptian civilisations were established?

Archaeological evidenc tells us that these ancient civilisations that existed back then were all very advanced well established civilisations.

The Sumerians had resolved the difference between the lunar and solar calendars, calculated the formula pie,

The Egyptians among other things had built the pyramids that to this day are marvels of engineeringÂ…Â…etc,

And all this along with populations that would collectively have to number in the millions (one estimate puts ancient Eygpt's pop. at 5-10 million alone)..

All accomplished in a mere 300 years commencing with no more than four breeding couples.

Yeah and with all the big buildings and concrete and all, don't you think the earth would be getting heavier and maybe change it's orbit around the sun or most likely suck the moon closer and closer to earth.
