40,000-year-old rope-making tool found in famed German cave
[Image: NzcRvWA_zpsxjl3nwus.jpg]

Quote:Archaeologists excavating the Hohle Fels Cave in the Swabian Jura of southwestern Germany have discovered a 40,000-year-old tool used to make rope. The piece was unearthed in August of last year by an international team led by Prof. Nicholas Conard of the University of Tübingen. Carved from mammoth ivory, the object is eight inches long and the wider side is dotted with four holes 7-9 millimeters in diameter. The holes are incised with deep spirals which are not decorative, but practical features that help thread plant fibers into strong rope.

Don't you know, Scientists are conspiring to make everything look older than it is because.......because they hate god so much so it can't be any older than 6000 years. Facepalm

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I watched a Potholer54 youtube video in which he perfectly described creationism's distrust of science: 1) They don't understand the science, so they think the theories that contrast with their worldview must be wrong; 2) And if all scientists are wrong, it must mean that they are all involved in a conspiracy to hide the truth of creation.

That's an amazing find.

Thanks for sharing it, Hobbit!

Even with evidence like that, you have a stupid population in Kentucky willing to wast 18 million tax payer dollars on a monument to a myth.

Which potholer54 video? I watched one of his anti-Creationist ones, but I don't think I got the one to which you guys are referring.

This is the one I watched. I think there are a couple more.





The "professor" has an Australian, outback looking costume on like he just came out of a field dig. It's so funny.
