Noah’s descendants were great architects and explorers who had a detailed knowledge of astronomy. Evidence shows that ancient man was also capable of using math and science to develop technologies and to build impressive structures.

The Chinese are attributed with inventing moveable type, writing paper, the seismograph, and even a mechanical clock hundreds of years ago. Ancient Greeks used steam boilers. And in Egypt, builders used math to create remarkable statues of the pharaoh Ramses the Second.

Mankind didn’t evolve but was made in the image of the Creator. For those who believe the Bible’s history, it is no surprise that our ancestors used their intellects to accomplish great feats.
