Where Have All the Bodies Gone?
Evolutionary timelines place the appearance of modern man to 250 thousand year ago. They date the alleged common ancestors and contemporaries to 2.5 million years ago. Just using the 250-thousand-year timeline, one must ask, where are all the bodies?
Evolutionists also claim there was a ‘Stone Age’ that lasted about 100,000 years. They posit between one million and 10 million people lived on Earth during this period. Fossil evidence shows that people buried their dead, often with artifacts—cremation was not practiced until relatively recent times (in evolutionary thinking). If there were just one million people alive during that time, with an average generation time of 25 years, they should have buried 4 billion bodies, and many artifacts during that timeframe.
Wait, it gets worse
If there were 10 million people as many scientists believe there were, it would mean 40 billion bodies buried somewhere in the earth. If the evolutionary timescale were correct, then we would expect the skeletons of the buried bodies to be largely still present after 100,000 years, because many ordinary bones claimed to be much older have been found. However, even if the bodies had disintegrated, lots of artifacts should still be found.
The problem with the evolutionary timeline gets much worse when you factor in the 1.9 million years they say Homo Erectus has been on the planet. Couple this with the fact that fossils of human ancestors are rare. How rare are they? We are told that you could pile all the ones that scientists have found and they would lay flat, side-by-side in the back of a pickup truck.
If the 100,000-year timeframe yields 4 billion bodies, the number for a 1.9 million-year timeframe is 19 times that number or a whopping 76 billion bodies. These numbers are estimates on the low side and they take into consideration disease, war and other variables. So, even with the disintegration of these skeletons over time, where are the artifacts and fossils?
Remember, the current world population is estimated at 7.5 billion people. If you use the biblical parameters calculating from Noah’s family and doubling the population every 150 years you easily arrive at the 7 billion plus number. That is why it is a perfectly sound question to ask, “Where have all the bodies gone?”
