So Noah Had a Cell Phone?

I wonder if this science is settled.

A professor in the Marine Sciences faculty at Istanbul University recently appeared on Turkish public television and asserted, in a lecture, that Noah and his family “must have had mobile phones” on the Ark–which, by the way, he said was made of steel, not gopher wood, and nuclear-powered ( Just in case you were wondering if only Western scientists are daft.

The prof surmised that the technology of the antediluvian world was quite advanced.

Well, okay, we can reasonably speculate that “civilization” is much older than we thought and it might have been more advanced than we ever thought, too. It has been discovered, for instance, that writing was probably invented one or two thousand years earlier than we believed. But cell phones? Cell phones that still worked during the greatest disaster ever experienced by the human race? I wonder what Noah’s family watched on TV while waiting for the waters of the Flood to subside.

But this is how it starts, when “science” gets all woozy.

And once it gets in bed with politics, as it is in our neck of the woods–watch out.

  1. Lee – We are waiting with baited breath for Book #10 on Amazon Kindle. How goes it and when will we get to partake? Your loving fans!

    1. “The Silver Trumpet” was going to be published this month, but it might be delayed a little. But it will come out soon, and become available in Kindle as soon as that can be arranged.
      Thank you, Chris–and I do treasure my readers: the few, the proud, etc.

  2. If we take the Preacher at his word, who knows?

    Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 9. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. 11. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

    1. I believe the Bible tells us that what we call “civilization” started and re-started, each time cut off: first by the Flood, then at the Tower of Babel. But I would really hate to think we just keep on repeating ourselves right down to the smallest details.

  3. Maybe the Noah’s dove brought back the olive branch from a planter on top of a cellular tower. (And the Tower of Babel was actually another of those towers.) Or then again, maybe Noah’s society had underground fiber optic cables that weren’t affected by the Flood.

    It’s amazing what people come up with to avoid contending with the facts related in the Bible.
