What does the Bible say about ancient man?
Psalm 8:5 declares clearly that man was made by God just a little lower than angels. The original word translated there as “angels” is the Hebrew word “ELOHIM.” It is used throughout the Old Testament to refer to Almighty God himself.
According to the Bible, man began at the top and then fell into depravity because of rebellion (sin) against his Creator.
The reality of all verified history, including our most trustworthy history book ever (the Bible), depicts man at his best in the beginning. He has been on a downhill slide ever since.

The well-known fact of man’s existence on earth is that his history goes back only about 5,000 years. The ancient Hebrew Scriptures are not the only record of this. Other early cultures testify to a similar starting point in time. Anything proposed to go back before 5,000 years ago is sheer speculation based on the insistence of evolution and the rejection of true history.
Is modern man really more advanced than ancient man?
