  • 00:00:41.824 --> 00:00:46.829
  • but such a massive judgmentwould leave a lot of evidence.
  • 00:00:46.862 --> 00:00:51.200
  • Today on "InGrace," we willexamine the fossil record

  • 00:01:33.108 --> 00:01:42.084
  • Bodie Hodge:We're going through
  • 00:01:42.117 --> 00:01:43.452
  • some of the phases of the flood.
  • 00:01:43.485 --> 00:01:45.087
  • Here we have theinitial onset of the flood.
  • 00:01:45.120 --> 00:01:47.089
  • "On the 17th day ofthe second month,
  • 00:01:47.122 --> 00:01:49.324
  • the springs of thegreat deep burst forth,"
  • 00:01:49.358 --> 00:01:51.560
  • and so we see thesemassive amounts of water
  • 00:01:51.593 --> 00:01:54.730
  • then shooting forth.
  • 00:01:54.763 --> 00:01:56.098
  • Jim: I think a lot ofpeople miss that
  • 00:01:56.131 --> 00:01:57.466
  • 'cause you're thinkingNoah's flood is rain.
  • 00:01:57.499 --> 00:01:59.568
  • Bodie: Right.
  • 00:01:59.601 --> 00:02:00.969
  • Jim: Which it was, butit wasn't just rain 'cause
  • 00:02:01.003 --> 00:02:03.038
  • they say, well, there'llbe never enough water
  • 00:02:03.071 --> 00:02:04.973
  • to cover the whole world.
  • 00:02:05.007 --> 00:02:06.308
  • Bodie: That's right, andthat's a common question
  • 00:02:06.341 --> 00:02:07.643
  • that we get quite often.
  • 00:02:07.676 --> 00:02:08.977
  • So what it is, is you'regetting a lot of the water
  • 00:02:09.011 --> 00:02:10.779
  • from the earth itself,is being shot up.
  • 00:02:10.812 --> 00:02:13.182
  • That's probably whattriggered a lot of the rain.
  • 00:02:13.215 --> 00:02:15.117
  • Well, the Bible says, "Thesprings of the great deep burst
  • 00:02:15.150 --> 00:02:17.853
  • forth, and the windowsof heaven were opened."
  • 00:02:17.886 --> 00:02:19.788
  • And so you're gettinga multitude of ways
  • 00:02:19.821 --> 00:02:21.890
  • that this rain is coming down.
  • 00:02:21.924 --> 00:02:23.425
  • Now, I've had people say,
  • 00:02:23.458 --> 00:02:24.760
  • "Well, do we have enough waterto cover the entire Earth?"
  • 00:02:24.793 --> 00:02:26.562
  • Actually, we do.We have plenty of water.
  • 00:02:26.595 --> 00:02:28.564
  • If you take the oceanbasins and bring 'em up,
  • 00:02:28.597 --> 00:02:31.233
  • you take the mountainsand the continents,
  • 00:02:31.266 --> 00:02:32.935
  • and you bring 'emdown to about a level,
  • 00:02:32.968 --> 00:02:34.303
  • we have enough waterto cover the entire Earth
  • 00:02:34.336 --> 00:02:36.338
  • about 1.6 miles deep.
  • 00:02:36.371 --> 00:02:38.106
  • So there's plentyof water there.
  • 00:02:38.140 --> 00:02:39.908
  • Jim: So you're saying thatthe highest mountains
  • 00:02:39.942 --> 00:02:41.877
  • were thrust up, duringor after the flood,
  • 00:02:41.910 --> 00:02:44.880
  • like plate tectonics?
  • 00:02:44.913 --> 00:02:46.248
  • Bodie: Probablyduring and after that.
  • 00:02:46.281 --> 00:02:47.616
  • You know, differentones at different times.
  • 00:02:47.649 --> 00:02:49.151
  • We know the mountains of Araratwere pushed up by the time
  • 00:02:49.184 --> 00:02:51.720
  • that the ark landed in'em on the 150th day.
  • 00:02:51.753 --> 00:02:54.256
  • So we have the flood beginning,
  • 00:02:54.289 --> 00:02:56.024
  • and then we have 40days and nights of rain.
  • 00:02:56.058 --> 00:02:58.093
  • That's the initial rainfall.
  • 00:02:58.126 --> 00:02:59.461
  • Raises up the ark, andthen we continue to see
  • 00:02:59.494 --> 00:03:02.231
  • the water prevail, andwe see that sort of thing.
  • 00:03:02.264 --> 00:03:04.766
  • Water levels rise globally.
  • 00:03:04.800 --> 00:03:07.002
  • We see probably allsorts of landslides, tsunamis.
  • 00:03:07.035 --> 00:03:10.105
  • Jim: So it's not,all of a sudden,
  • 00:03:10.138 --> 00:03:11.540
  • all the animal and allthe humans are dead,
  • 00:03:11.573 --> 00:03:12.941
  • but they will be, andyou can see evidence
  • 00:03:12.975 --> 00:03:14.776
  • of tracks, right, ofanimals trying to escape?
  • 00:03:14.810 --> 00:03:18.247
  • Bodie: We see a lot of tracksof creatures, particularly lower
  • 00:03:18.280 --> 00:03:20.682
  • in the fossil record.
  • 00:03:20.716 --> 00:03:22.017
  • You get to a certain point,and you don't find 'em anymore.
  • 00:03:22.050 --> 00:03:23.819
  • We actually expect that.
  • 00:03:23.852 --> 00:03:25.220
  • The Bible says on the 150thday, all the land-dwelling,
  • 00:03:25.254 --> 00:03:27.356
  • air-breathing animalsthat breathe
  • 00:03:27.389 --> 00:03:29.024
  • through theirnostrils had died.
  • 00:03:29.057 --> 00:03:30.926
  • And of course, the ark wasfloating above all that.
  • 00:03:30.959 --> 00:03:33.629
  • All this stuff is goingon underneath, global flood--
  • 00:03:33.662 --> 00:03:36.465
  • Jim: Another questionpeople have is,
  • 00:03:36.498 --> 00:03:38.066
  • how come you're notfinding a lot of humans
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:40.402
  • in the fossil record,human activity?
  • 00:03:40.435 --> 00:03:41.803
  • Bodie: You know,that's a great question.
  • 00:03:41.837 --> 00:03:43.171
  • I'm glad you asked that.
  • 00:03:43.205 --> 00:03:44.573
  • If you think of animals,when God created animals,
  • 00:03:44.606 --> 00:03:46.174
  • he created theworld animal-rich.
  • 00:03:46.208 --> 00:03:47.976
  • It was full of animals,it was full of plants,
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:50.112
  • but when it came to man,he created two of us.
  • 00:03:50.145 --> 00:03:52.681
  • All of us are descendantsof Adam and Eve,
  • 00:03:52.714 --> 00:03:55.117
  • and what we haveis ten generations
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:56.985
  • from Adam to Noah--just ten generations.
  • 00:03:57.019 --> 00:04:00.455
  • So how many people were actually
  • 00:04:00.489 --> 00:04:01.857
  • on the earth at thetime of the flood?
  • 00:04:01.890 --> 00:04:03.292
  • That's a great question.
  • 00:04:03.325 --> 00:04:04.660
  • Ten generations,and in some cases,
  • 00:04:04.693 --> 00:04:06.295
  • people like Noah, theydidn't even have children
  • 00:04:06.328 --> 00:04:08.363
  • till he was 500 years old.
  • 00:04:08.397 --> 00:04:10.065
  • So the population may nothave been as high as we think.
  • 00:04:10.098 --> 00:04:12.801
  • We sometimes wanna take modernpopulation's gross statistics
  • 00:04:12.834 --> 00:04:15.937
  • and apply it then, butthat may not be the best
  • 00:04:15.971 --> 00:04:18.240
  • because it was a littlebit different world.
  • 00:04:18.273 --> 00:04:20.042
  • Another thing isconsider the violence.
  • 00:04:20.075 --> 00:04:22.411
  • If the whole worldwere murderers,
  • 00:04:22.444 --> 00:04:24.179
  • the population cutsin half in one day.
  • 00:04:24.212 --> 00:04:26.248
  • So what was the populationat the time of the flood?
  • 00:04:26.281 --> 00:04:28.483
  • I don't know.
  • 00:04:28.517 --> 00:04:29.851
  • My personal beliefis the Lord
  • 00:04:29.885 --> 00:04:31.286
  • provided the sufficientmeans to actually--
  • 00:04:31.320 --> 00:04:34.022
  • Jim: I've neverthought of that.
  • 00:04:34.056 --> 00:04:35.357
  • Bodie: To save people.
  • 00:04:35.390 --> 00:04:36.692
  • Jim: 'Cause I'vealways wondered,
  • 00:04:36.725 --> 00:04:38.026
  • you know, it is big,but how could the whole
  • 00:04:38.060 --> 00:04:39.528
  • world's population fit on theark, but if there had been
  • 00:04:39.561 --> 00:04:41.463
  • so much violence--and that'swhy God finally had to say,
  • 00:04:41.496 --> 00:04:44.132
  • "I have to stop this becauseeveryone would be dead
  • 00:04:44.166 --> 00:04:47.569
  • if I don't."
  • 00:04:47.602 --> 00:04:48.904
  • Bodie: Yeah, it'spossible, yeah.
  • 00:04:48.937 --> 00:04:50.272
  • I mean, there's some of that--
  • 00:04:50.305 --> 00:04:51.606
  • you know, the Bible doesn'tgive us all the details on that.
  • 00:04:51.640 --> 00:04:53.408
  • It's interesting to think about.
  • 00:04:53.442 --> 00:04:54.843
  • Jim: That is fascinating.
  • 00:04:54.876 --> 00:04:56.211
  • Well, it's logical.It really is.
  • 00:04:56.244 --> 00:04:57.579
  • Bodie: But you know,sometimes we think of Noah
  • 00:04:57.612 --> 00:04:58.947
  • in being this righteousfigure who stood
  • 00:04:58.980 --> 00:05:00.449
  • against the evil world.
  • 00:05:00.482 --> 00:05:02.150
  • I guarantee you,when that door shut,
  • 00:05:02.184 --> 00:05:03.618
  • he was probably in tears'cause, according to the Bible,
  • 00:05:03.652 --> 00:05:06.154
  • Lamech had other sons anddaughters besides Noah.
  • 00:05:06.188 --> 00:05:08.924
  • Noah had brothers andsisters that would've died
  • 00:05:08.957 --> 00:05:10.892
  • in this flood so--and wethink about this: you know,
  • 00:05:10.926 --> 00:05:15.797
  • "The springs of thegreat deep burst forth,"
  • 00:05:15.831 --> 00:05:17.332
  • we see continental shiftingand moving, and, you know,
  • 00:05:17.366 --> 00:05:20.369
  • this just gives us a taste.
  • 00:05:20.402 --> 00:05:21.770
  • You can see this Indian plate,where it kind of comes up here
  • 00:05:21.803 --> 00:05:24.139
  • and thrusts in tothe Eurasian plate.
  • 00:05:24.172 --> 00:05:26.241
  • Jim: So you're gonna becreating tall mountains
  • 00:05:26.274 --> 00:05:28.477
  • where that happens?
  • 00:05:28.510 --> 00:05:29.945
  • Bodie: Correct, andin this particular area,
  • 00:05:29.978 --> 00:05:31.380
  • that's where we find theHimalayas, for example.
  • 00:05:31.413 --> 00:05:33.048
  • The highest mountainpeak in the world,
  • 00:05:33.081 --> 00:05:34.583
  • of course, sits in thatparticular mountain range.
  • 00:05:34.616 --> 00:05:37.719
  • The ark rests 17th dayof the seventh month,
  • 00:05:37.753 --> 00:05:40.889
  • and exactly five months ifyou use the 360-day calendar.
  • 00:05:40.922 --> 00:05:44.292
  • It was actually five monthsafter the flood began.
  • 00:05:44.326 --> 00:05:46.728
  • Jim: Where is the ark?
  • 00:05:46.762 --> 00:05:48.130
  • Have you been able to find it?
  • 00:05:48.163 --> 00:05:49.531
  • Bodie: You know, that'sa popular question as well.
  • 00:05:49.564 --> 00:05:51.166
  • People wouldn't ask thatquestion if we found it.
  • 00:05:51.199 --> 00:05:53.135
  • That would be probablyone of the biggest finds
  • 00:05:53.168 --> 00:05:54.703
  • ever in history.
  • 00:05:54.736 --> 00:05:56.071
  • Jim: That would be cool.
  • 00:05:56.104 --> 00:05:57.472
  • And there's plenty ofpeople that are looking.
  • 00:05:57.506 --> 00:05:58.840
  • Bodie: But I want peopleto realize something too.
  • 00:05:58.874 --> 00:06:00.275
  • You don't have to find theark for the Bible to be true.
  • 00:06:00.308 --> 00:06:02.344
  • Jim: That's right.
  • 00:06:02.377 --> 00:06:03.712
  • Bodie: You know, a lot of times,
  • 00:06:03.745 --> 00:06:05.113
  • people wanna tie theirfaith to a particular--
  • 00:06:05.147 --> 00:06:07.382
  • "Well, we gottafind this, otherwise,
  • 00:06:07.416 --> 00:06:08.717
  • we don't know if it's true."
  • 00:06:08.750 --> 00:06:10.051
  • No, no, the Bible's true.
  • 00:06:10.085 --> 00:06:11.453
  • That's the absolute standard.
  • 00:06:11.486 --> 00:06:12.888
  • And so, you know, whenwe find different pieces
  • 00:06:12.921 --> 00:06:14.856
  • of archaeologicalevidence, for example,
  • 00:06:14.890 --> 00:06:16.792
  • that's a great confirmationof what we read in Scripture,
  • 00:06:16.825 --> 00:06:18.927
  • but that's not theproof of the Bible.
  • 00:06:18.960 --> 00:06:20.729
  • The Bible is actuallythe basis for proof.
  • 00:06:20.762 --> 00:06:22.697
  • Jim: Really, theproof of the Bible
  • 00:06:22.731 --> 00:06:24.099
  • is the Resurrection of Jesus.
  • 00:06:24.132 --> 00:06:25.667
  • If he rose.It's true.
  • 00:06:25.700 --> 00:06:27.536
  • Bodie: I'll tell you what, yeah.
  • 00:06:27.569 --> 00:06:28.937
  • Bodie: You know, I liketo tell a lot of people,
  • 00:06:28.970 --> 00:06:31.506
  • if you can believe thefirst verse of the Bible,
  • 00:06:31.540 --> 00:06:33.008
  • you should be able tobelieve all the rest of it.
  • 00:06:33.041 --> 00:06:34.776
  • And you know what?

  • The mountaintops become visible.
  • 00:06:39.681 --> 00:06:41.383
  • Now, that could be, in one part,because water is going down.
  • 00:06:41.416 --> 00:06:44.653
  • That can also be becausewe have a lot of water vapor
  • 00:06:44.686 --> 00:06:47.122
  • and a lot of volcanismthat's in the air,

  • we actually endedup with an ice age.
  • 00:07:24.559 --> 00:07:26.461
  • The flood was theperfect conditions
  • 00:07:26.495 --> 00:07:28.930
  • to trigger an ice age.
  • 00:07:28.964 --> 00:07:30.532
  • What you need for an ice age arewarm oceans and cool summers.
  • 00:07:30.565 --> 00:07:34.135
  • So with continental shifting,with a lot of the volcanism,
  • 00:07:34.169 --> 00:07:37.105
  • that's actually gonnaheat up these oceans,
  • 00:07:37.138 --> 00:07:39.441

  • 00:07:39.474 --> 00:07:43.912
  • You get hotter water,you evaporate more.
  • 00:07:43.945 --> 00:07:45.780

  • 00:07:45.814 --> 00:07:48.316
  • Particularly in the wintertime,you get a lot more snow,
  • 00:07:48.350 --> 00:07:50.752
  • so you get a lot of snow,but the other key is you have
  • 00:07:50.785 --> 00:07:53.455
  • to have cool summers because,if you have cool summers,
  • 00:07:53.488 --> 00:07:56.591
  • then all that snowdoesn't melt off,
  • 00:07:56.625 --> 00:07:58.793

  • Jim: So now you're starting--and that's what a glacier is.
  • 00:08:01.763 --> 00:08:03.632
  • It's snow that's beingcompressed down,
  • 00:08:03.665 --> 00:08:06.301
  • layer after layer, so it'snot melting all the way,
  • 00:08:06.334 --> 00:08:08.970

  • Actually, the global floodactually explains a lot of this.
  • 00:08:16.278 --> 00:08:18.580
  • When you have continentalshifting and moving,
  • 00:08:18.613 --> 00:08:21.082

  • it's not just lavathat comes out.
  • 00:08:27.522 --> 00:08:29.724

  • 00:08:54.716 --> 00:08:56.418
  • Back in the 1800s, there was amassive volcano that went off
  • 00:08:56.451 --> 00:08:59.854
  • in South America,and when it went off--
  • 00:08:59.888 --> 00:09:01.990
  • I mean, it dwarfed Mount SaintHelens, but it left particulates
  • 00:09:02.023 --> 00:09:05.627
  • up in the air, and the summerfollowing that was called
  • 00:09:05.660 --> 00:09:09.397
  • "The Year Without a Summer,"because a lot of sunlight
  • 00:09:09.431 --> 00:09:12.200
  • was reflected back from thosedioxins and those particulates,
  • 00:09:12.233 --> 00:09:15.570
  • so we didn't get as muchsunlight on the earth.
  • 00:09:15.604 --> 00:09:17.806
  • It actually droppedthe global temperature,

  • Bodie: I would say there'sa minimum of about 78,
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:59.286

  • 00:12:01.288 --> 00:12:02.923
  • If you add 'em all up, youhave about 78 in there.
  • 00:12:02.956 --> 00:12:06.560
  • And the reason I say,"minimum," as well,
  • 00:12:06.593 --> 00:12:08.295
  • is because, when it comesto the line of Shem,
  • 00:12:08.328 --> 00:12:10.864
  • it didn't give youall the descendants.
  • 00:12:10.898 --> 00:12:12.966

  • 00:12:13.000 --> 00:12:14.401
  • in Genesis chapter 11,where it then goes back
  • 00:12:14.434 --> 00:12:16.803
  • into Shem's lineage, andwe read more about it.
  • 00:12:16.837 --> 00:12:18.839
  • So there was other sonsand daughters in there
  • 00:12:18.872 --> 00:12:21.208
  • that may have gotten in as well,so a minimum of 78.
  • 00:12:21.241 --> 00:12:23.610
  • If we actually look atlanguage families today,
  • 00:12:23.644 --> 00:12:26.113
  • they're somewhere in theneighborhood of about 95 to 100,
  • 00:12:26.146 --> 00:12:29.349

  • 00:12:29.383 --> 00:12:30.751

  • 00:12:32.286 --> 00:12:34.288
  • some sign languages,but if we're actually trying
  • 00:12:34.321 --> 00:12:36.890
  • to think of actual languages,non-constructed languages,
  • 00:12:36.924 --> 00:12:40.160

  • 00:13:52.966 --> 00:13:55.135
  • But then people say, "But whydo people look so different?
  • 00:13:55.168 --> 00:13:57.904
  • You know, I see peoplewith lighter skin tone
  • 00:13:57.938 --> 00:13:59.272
  • or darker skin tone,people with different hairstyles
  • 00:13:59.306 --> 00:14:01.908
  • and different bodybuilds, and so forth.
  • 00:14:01.942 --> 00:14:04.411
  • Actually, the Tower of Babelexplains this beautifully.
  • 00:14:04.444 --> 00:14:07.647
  • We look at different peoples,and look at some
  • 00:14:07.681 --> 00:14:10.884
  • of the variationwe just see here
  • 00:14:10.917 --> 00:14:12.219
  • amongst some of these people.
  • 00:14:12.252 --> 00:14:13.620
  • You see blond hair andfair skin and green eyes.
  • 00:14:13.653 --> 00:14:16.289
  • We got dark eyes, dark hair.
  • 00:14:16.323 --> 00:14:18.158
  • Got almost kind of areddish-looking beard.
  • 00:14:18.191 --> 00:14:20.861
  • We see all sorts ofdifferent features.
  • 00:14:20.894 --> 00:14:22.729
  • How do we explain that?
  • 00:14:22.763 --> 00:14:24.131
  • Actually, the Tower ofBabel explains it so well.
  • 00:14:24.164 --> 00:14:26.500
  • As different family groups goto different parts of the world,
  • 00:14:26.533 --> 00:14:29.469
  • the gene pool gets split apart.
  • 00:14:29.503 --> 00:14:31.805
  • People who went to Asia tookgenes for an almond shaped eye.
  • 00:14:31.838 --> 00:14:34.775
  • People who went to Africatook genes for a darker skin.
  • 00:14:34.808 --> 00:14:37.110
  • People who went to Europetook genes for a lighter skin,
  • 00:14:37.144 --> 00:14:39.179
  • but we're all related,which means we're all sinners.
  • 00:14:39.212 --> 00:14:41.381
  • We're all in need of JesusChrist no matter what we look
  • 00:14:41.415 --> 00:14:44.785
  • like, but at the same time,the Bible explains this
  • 00:14:44.818 --> 00:14:49.056
  • because we see that invariation within our genetics.
  • 00:14:49.089 --> 00:14:51.792
  • Now, let me kind of explain thisin a little bit more detail.
  • 00:14:51.825 --> 00:14:54.928
  • So let's say Noah and his wifehad the genetic disposition
  • 00:14:54.961 --> 00:14:59.833
  • to have light skin and darkskin, all right there together,
  • 00:14:59.866 --> 00:15:02.602
  • and so let's say they come out,kind of, more of a middle brown.
  • 00:15:02.636 --> 00:15:05.205
  • They could havechildren who really dark,
  • 00:15:05.238 --> 00:15:07.240
  • to really lightin one generation.
  • 00:15:07.274 --> 00:15:09.109
  • It was probably something likethis with Adam and Eve as well.
  • 00:15:09.142 --> 00:15:11.478
  • But then, as we start to seesome of these break down
  • 00:15:11.511 --> 00:15:14.047
  • between Shem and his wife,or Japheth and his wife,
  • 00:15:14.081 --> 00:15:17.851
  • and Ham and his wife,we start to see even more
  • 00:15:17.884 --> 00:15:21.154
  • as this breaks out, as people goto different parts of the world.
  • 00:15:21.188 --> 00:15:23.557
  • Jim: And they're indifferent parts of the world,
  • 00:15:23.590 --> 00:15:25.292
  • their isolated,so this variation
  • 00:15:25.325 --> 00:15:27.094
  • is gonna now become prominent?
  • 00:15:27.127 --> 00:15:28.628
  • Bodie: That's exactly right.
  • 00:15:28.662 --> 00:15:29.963
  • Let's move over to the maphere just for a moment.
  • 00:15:29.996 --> 00:15:31.631
  • You know, as youget out here to Asia,
  • 00:15:31.665 --> 00:15:33.567
  • some of Ham's descendants,some of the Sinites particularly
  • 00:15:33.600 --> 00:15:36.903
  • moved out here.
  • 00:15:36.937 --> 00:15:38.305
  • A lot of the Chinesestill call themselves--
  • 00:15:38.338 --> 00:15:39.673
  • use the name Sinite or Sinim.
  • 00:15:39.706 --> 00:15:41.842
  • Sino-Japanese War, if youthink of some of the names.
  • 00:15:41.875 --> 00:15:45.212
  • But so we end up with a groupout here that's isolated.
  • 00:15:45.245 --> 00:15:47.848
  • The features of their greatestgrandparents are now gonna
  • 00:15:47.881 --> 00:15:50.884
  • be shown in the population,and so you get a lot of people--
  • 00:15:50.917 --> 00:15:54.020
  • they probably had moreof an almond-shaped eye,
  • 00:15:54.054 --> 00:15:55.889
  • some of thosedescendants right there.
  • 00:15:55.922 --> 00:15:57.624
  • People in particularareas of Africa,
  • 00:15:57.657 --> 00:15:59.993
  • Cush, for example, goes outand settles a lot of this area.
  • 00:16:00.026 --> 00:16:02.629
  • A lot of themmoved down in here.
  • 00:16:02.662 --> 00:16:04.097
  • This is known as Lower Cush.
  • 00:16:04.131 --> 00:16:05.665
  • They probably had alittle bit darker skin
  • 00:16:05.699 --> 00:16:07.834
  • that lived in thatparticular area.
  • 00:16:07.868 --> 00:16:09.369
  • Some of the people that migratedup here and lived up here
  • 00:16:09.402 --> 00:16:11.972
  • in France or Germany,they had lighter skin tone,
  • 00:16:12.005 --> 00:16:15.108
  • so their descendants aregonna have a lot of that.
  • 00:16:15.142 --> 00:16:17.477
  • So, yes, we see that.
  • 00:16:17.511 --> 00:16:19.045
  • Now, we're gonna still see a lotof mixing in the Middle East,
  • 00:16:19.079 --> 00:16:21.281
  • where we do happen tosee a lot of middle brown,
  • 00:16:21.314 --> 00:16:23.416
  • a lot of middle features.
  • 00:16:23.450 --> 00:16:25.218
  • But the Bible explains then,as people go to different parts
  • 00:16:25.252 --> 00:16:27.921
  • of the world, that's whywe have the variation.
  • 00:16:27.954 --> 00:16:31.324
  • And you know what?
  • 00:16:31.358 --> 00:16:32.659
  • A lot of these language familiesactually match up with these
  • 00:16:32.692 --> 00:16:34.327
  • different people groups as well.
  • 00:16:34.361 --> 00:16:35.862
  • So we're seeing it,not just from one way,
  • 00:16:35.896 --> 00:16:37.831
  • but from multiple elements.
  • 00:16:37.864 --> 00:16:39.499
  • Jim: So you have the biblicalexplanation of how we got here,
  • 00:16:39.533 --> 00:16:43.103
  • the fall, the punishmentof the flood,
  • 00:16:43.136 --> 00:16:46.473
  • and then the dispersionof the nations,
  • 00:16:46.506 --> 00:16:49.843
  • and we're all one race, but thenyou have the evolutionary world
  • 00:16:49.876 --> 00:16:53.346
  • view, or the Darwinian worldview that we're all evolving,
  • 00:16:53.380 --> 00:16:56.616
  • so then, that would predict thatyou have lower human races
  • 00:16:56.650 --> 00:17:00.654
  • and higher humanraces--that's racism.
  • 00:17:00.687 --> 00:17:03.557
  • Bodie: That really is.
  • 00:17:03.590 --> 00:17:04.958
  • See, an evolutionary worldview is inherently racist.
  • 00:17:04.991 --> 00:17:07.494
  • You know, there's alot of evolutionists
  • 00:17:07.527 --> 00:17:09.362
  • who are not racist.
  • 00:17:09.396 --> 00:17:10.764
  • Please don't getme wrong on that,
  • 00:17:10.797 --> 00:17:12.132
  • but the world view itself,
  • 00:17:12.165 --> 00:17:13.500
  • it comes out of aracist understanding.
  • 00:17:13.533 --> 00:17:15.268
  • You go back toearly evolutionists
  • 00:17:15.302 --> 00:17:17.270
  • like Charles Darwin,Ernst Haeckel.
  • 00:17:17.304 --> 00:17:18.905
  • These guys were racistin that understanding.
  • 00:17:18.939 --> 00:17:22.642
  • And see, what they have isthey have apes here in Africa,
  • 00:17:22.676 --> 00:17:25.812
  • so they say apes evolvedinto humans here,
  • 00:17:25.845 --> 00:17:28.181
  • and then they came out andhappened to come right up here,
  • 00:17:28.215 --> 00:17:31.117
  • probably not too farfrom the Tower of Babel,
  • 00:17:31.151 --> 00:17:32.919
  • and then, all of a sudden,everybody splits around.
  • 00:17:32.953 --> 00:17:34.588
  • If they would just reversethe line here for where
  • 00:17:34.621 --> 00:17:37.457
