DNA, GENES, GENOMES, DINOSAURS, CLONING, and ATLANTIS
Before we consider our subject, lets
take a look at why some things are so hard to believe when they
are told to us. In fact, some things seem so strange to us that
we immediately put them out of our minds as being completely
wrong. Suppose, for instance, to use an actual example from history
around the year 1492, that when a person is a small child he
is told that the earth is flat. All during his childhood his
parents, teachers, and friends always refer to the earth as flat.
In college his professors tell him that the earth is flat. Then,
should someone come along and tell him that the earth is not
flat, but round like a globe, contrary to what everyone else
has told him, what would he think? He would think that the person
telling him the truth was totally in error. He would not be able
to accept the truth, for the truth would seem so strange and
impossible to him. This point is of extreme importance; for until
we realize that we have largely been raised and educated in an
atmosphere of incorrect theories and outright lies, we will not
be able to accept the truth. The Bible tells us in Revelation
12:9 that everyone on earth has been deceived. And the
great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil,
and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
With this in mind, let us consider where
the dinosaurs came from and how they became extinct. When God
created man, he was over twice as tall as he is today. There
were giants in the earth in those days; (Genesis 6:4).
Before Noahs flood, mankind lived to be nearly 1000 years
old, and he had an intelligence much greater than our intelligence
today. Think what a person could accomplish under these conditions,
having a useful life span of hundreds of years. Science and technology
would advance very rapidly. Machines and other devices would
rapidly become extremely sophisticated. All fields of science
would progress with astonishing speed. In fact, we, today, are
just now approaching the level of technology the people enjoyed
before the flood. The Bible says that at the end of our world,
conditions will be just like they were before the world was destroyed
by the flood. And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall
it be also in the days of the Son of man. (Luke 17:26).
And dont forget that Adam and Eve had a tremendous advantage
over us in their education. They were educated by God himself.
Just as men are doing today, before the flood they were experimenting
with DNA, genes, and genomes. They were trying to create life,
to create clones, just as people are trying to do today. They
were cloning and biologically engineering many of the life forms
that God created, and they were very successful at it. Perhaps
some of this cloning and genetic engineering got a little out
of hand, and creatures were produced that raised havoc with other
life forms. Dinosaurs were the result of some of this cloning
and genetic engineering. In our day, dinosaur footprints have
been found with very large human footprints alongside, showing
that humans were contemporaries with dinosaurs.
When it was time for Noah and his family
to go into the ark, the animals assembled and went into the ark
also. Why didnt God take animals like the dinosaurs into
the ark? Only the animals that God created went into the ark.
The animals that resulted from cloning and biological engineering
were not taken into the ark. These animals perished in the world-wide

enjoyed, get the book by Rene Noorbergen entitled Secrets
of the Lost Races. This book had been out of print, but it

The legend of Atlantis has Intrigued mankind
for thousands of years. Atlantis is said to have been a fantastically
advanced civilization with a highly developed technology. From
what we just read, the only civilization that existed in the
past with this kind of technology was the civilization that existed
before Noahs flood. Evidence of this technology can be
found world-wide. The civilization that existed before the flood
was the Atlantis that people are searching for today. At the
flood, the entire topography of the earth was changed, so that
much of what existed before the flood is now buried beneath mountains.
