" And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth."
(Genesis 11:3-4 KJV)
The archeological finds of the Near East tell a story of man's slow advancement in knowledge as Our Awesome God met their needs one at a time. As the need for something became apparent God's helping Hand allowed man to look for and find an answer. God was there to help man when the need was great but we have no idea on how long it took to discover each step toward the creation of something new. Archeology continues to make discoveries of different objects.
The Cradle of Civilization was in Mesopotamia where the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers have a very fertile valley that caused people to congregate before there were cities. These people slowly grouped together over time to protect their possessions and their lives from other smaller bands of people. Cities were formed around the fertile rivers and were fortified. Traders came with goods from other places to water and feed their livestock near these rivers. They traded with the people in these cities such as Ararat and Babylon. The Babylonians liked trading so they increased the wheat, flax, fruit and vegetables they grew so they could sell the extra. Soon they needed larger buildings to store the produce so they invented bricks, buildings and wheels. The Babylonians invented an irrigation system for those crops that grew a long way away from the river. Our Awesome God created man, all the plants and animals and man's brain and monitored his progress through the ages, helping him invent.
The Hand of God has always been and always will be on man, helping him with all things that keep him living. Man needs to put his pride aside and realize he can do nothing without God. We all need to realize that Our Awesome God created this complete world which includes our minds and give Him the glory for His inventions and ideas.
