This is a good example of the incredibly advanced knowledge one can obtain with creation science. It’s from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. He wrote this at Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Could the Inca People Write? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
It’s long been believed the great Inca civilization never left behind any written records. But what if that’s just because we couldn’t recognize their writing? A fascinating new study reveals the Incas did leave a written history behind — we just didn’t recognize it.
Hambo links to this article in New Scientist: We thought the Incas couldn’t write. These knots change everything. It’s about the presently inconclusive attempts to decipher Quipu — described by Wikipedia as: “recording devices fashioned from strings historically used by a number of cultures in the region of Andean South America. … The Inca people used them for collecting data and keeping records, monitoring tax obligations, properly collecting census records, calendrical information, and for military organization.”
Okay, back to Hambo. He says:
This civilization was complex and absolutely massive, stretching from modern-day Ecuador to Chile during the 1400s. They built a system of roads and woven bridges to connect the land, built ziggurats that still astound engineers today, and left behind a bevy of artifacts for us to puzzle over. One such group of artifacts is known as “khipu.” These are a system of knots tied into cords. Amazingly, these knotted cords are actually a system to store numbers.
You’re probably wondering what those knotted strings of the Incas have to do with creationism. Well, dear reader, as we proceed with Hambo’s post, you’ll be amazed. He tells us:
Mankind has always been intelligent — this is just another example. Those who left Babel and travelled to South America [What? How?] to establish their own civilization and culture were made in the image of God with intelligence and ingenuity. They also had a God-given language that came from the division at the Tower of Babel.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The Incas were descendants of Noah, and traveled to South America with their own language after the confusion at the Tower of Babel. Hambo continues:
Genesis 5:1 says, “This is the book of the generations of Adam.”
Ah, that’s Hambo’s evidence. Let’s read on:
There is no reason to believe that Adam, Noah, etc. did not have a written language/language system and could have handed documents down to Moses and later generations.
Right. There’s no reason not to believe that. There’s also no reason not to believe in the Time Cube or the Cosmic Aardvark. Hambo ends his post with this:
I encourage you to read the full article on this research — it’s fascinating to see the intelligence of those who left Babel and settled a new land.
There you are, dear reader. Make of it what you will.
