The timelines of World History contradict Young Earth Creationism . According to Bible sources, Noah's global flood-genocide occurred around 2350 BCE, but there were civilizations in existence long before that and they continued to exist right through "the global flood" uninterrupted.

This article is a rerun of a broken record that's been played over and over again for the last century--I'm surprised archaeologynews even bothered to tweet this.

If the author is specifically addressing young earth creationism, it's hardly accurate to title it "archaeology contradicts the Bible" when "the Bible" can have myriads of well-defended, different interpretations that pose no contradiction to archaeology.

Get with the times and broaden your scope. Just because some mainstream Southern Baptists or Evangelicals may still adhere to a literalist reading, it doesn't mean their interpretations are somehow the perfect representation of the biblical text.

Archaeology doesn't contradict anything. It merely discovers, studies, surveys an matches the discovery with other already discovered artifacts of the time period to tell the story of what life may have been like at that time period. It's like finding a jigsaw piece. The pieces come together to tell the story. It's just there, irregardless of what other stories may be out there.
