    Well, if the archaeologists don't watch where they're going, they may stumble into their own pit, and fall under the ground.

    Under ground :)

    Archeology provides material for historians, prehistorians, and anthropologists: building foundations, weapons, tools, jewelry, money, dishes, remains of food in wastes, pollens of farmed plants, traces of wounds or diseases on skeletons, etc.

    The archeologist digs for artifacts, the historian interprets what it means regarding the given civilization way of life, the fate of the battle, etc.

    Archaeology falls under the category of anthropology. It is the study of human history through physical remains. Unfortunately, it seems that they are so busy looking at the remains, they don't see the forest for the trees.

    Take a look at this picture:

    These trees were buried by tsunami waves; the mud engulfed them, burying them upright.


    Under the forces of extreme pressure minerals in the sediment turned them to stone. 

    *Stone cannot be dated.*

    Once around the sun = one year.

    You can't hold up a rock and tell us how many times it has travelled around the sun:

    it does not 'age'.

    Every fossil that exists on the planet was created during the world-wide flood. That's why there are clam fossils on the top of Mt. Everest.

    Fallen angels originally had bodies of their own. They made love to the daughters of men and had children by them. These half-breeds were known as the Nephilim. They were giants. Heroes. Men of renown. They had people sacrificing themselves and their children to them at places like Stonehenge. They were pure evil... a good part of the reason why God flooded the world.

    Eight people survived the flood 4500 years ago.

    One hundred years later, their offspring directly disobeyed orders to disperse and instead came together to build the Tower of Babel.

    "Nothing will be impossible for them." God said...

    So to slow technology (so we wouldn't kill ourselves off) He mixed up their languages and scattered them - also dividing the land. Gen. 10:25 and 11:8-9

    I mean - can you imagine? Electricity has always existed... we just recently learned how to harness it. What would have happened if the ancient Egyptians had that power?

    The people were scattered throughout the world - and we are all descendants of them.

    They took the stories of God, creation, the pre-flood people and world, and the stories of the flood with them.

    The Chinese word for 'boat' contains the number 8 for the 8 people that were on the ark. There are stories about these events found in every ancient culture around the world (230 at last count).

    The pyramids found all over the world are replicas of the tower of Babel.

    Go to Google earth and search 'Tower of Babel'... the site is still there. Then Google 'Noah's Ark TURKEY'... a tourist attraction since the 70's.

    Then Google 'POLYSTRATE fossils'....

    Trees that were buried upright during the flood.

    Minerals entered the tissues of plants and animals after burial in mud; under the forces of extreme pressure - everything fossilized and became stone.

    The only reason why fossils even exist is because of the worldwide flood.

    Archaeology, which studies human activity through investigation of physical evidence, is thought of as a branch of anthropology in the United States and Canada, while in Europe, it is viewed as a discipline in its own right or grouped under other related disciplines, such as history.

    It is a sub-discipline of Anthropology.
