The Development of Ancient Civilizations Before Recorded History

Is it possible that advanced civilization existed on Earth before “recorded” history? Is it possible that religion only tells one side of the story?
According to two notable gentlemen such as Roman Emperor Julian the Apostate (circa A.D. 331–363) and Calvinist theologian Isaac de La Peyrère (1596-1676) Pre-Adamite beings did exist in the distant past on our planet. But mayo other historians and mainstream researchers suggest there was a race of people inhabiting Earth before Adam and Eve lived on our planet.
Due to the “fall” of “Satan” a widespread destruction occurred on planet Earth. The result of this destruction was so extensive that the world had to be redone with Adam and Eve being the first. But what happened really?
Did “civilization” on Earth “restart” several times in the distant past?
Genesis 1:28 (ESV)
28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Let reconsider the following; Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
Considering the genealogy of man taking in count that Adam was the first human being in our era, it is reasonable to estimate that from Adam to our time about 6,000 years have passed. There were 76 generations from Adam to Jesus which are recorded in Matthew 23: 38. The History since God created the planet and from Adam to our time is just a fraction of the age and history of our planet and the universe. There have been other civilizations before “religion” was created.
The Adamic age, as the Bible suggests, will last 7.000 years culminating in the millennial reign of Christ on earth ruling from Jerusalem, and we are nearing the completion of the first 6,000 years of the Adamic period.
1 Corinthians 15:45 (ESV) 45 Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
It is well-known that the Bible wasn’t actually made as a Book telling a universal history, nor cosmic or geological history and according to many researchers, it cannot be considered as a book of science.
Even though the bible clearly states, in the early chapters of Genesis that god is the responsible creator of the universe, man and animals, we cannot seem to understand what the bible suggests happened before this time.
We know today that our plant has been “here” for over 4,500 millions of years and that the universe is around 13,700 million years old. Some scientists suggest the age of both the universe and our planet is much older.
There are even certain Maya texts which indicated that our universe is around 16,700 million years old. These texts were inspired by “fallen angels” and “Gods” who gave the ancient Maya great knowledge; Teaching them in Astronomy, engineering, and mathematics, allowing them to erect some of the greatest temples on Earth, like Chichen Itza. Even though some consider these tales of gods only to be a myth, many believe that there is much truth in them.
Researchers have come across numerous findings which have confirmed that man has existed on Earth way before sacred books like the bible suggest.
But is it possible that Pre-Adamite civilizations existed on Earth? And better yet, is it possible that these ancient Pre-Historical civilizations might be connected in some way to the lost “civilization of Mu and Atlantis”?
Is it possible that the Bible speaks of beings that belonged to these ancient civilizations?
Some researchers believe that there is physical and Biblical evidence which points to great knowledge and scientific breakthroughs which the bible does not contradict.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 – 1:10:
9 That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there anything of which one might say, “See this, it is new “? Already it has existed for ages Which were before us.…
Is it possible that all of the highly advanced technologies that we have developed such as lasers, atomic bombs, satellites, computers, space ships and so on, existed in the distant past? With civilizations that predate “Adam and Eve”? According to Biblical accounts, nothing is new.
but not only do we have written evidence that points towards the existence civilizations before Adam. Researchers have found, in all corners of the world, physical evidence that points towards the existence of highly advanced ancient civilizations: The map of the Creator which is believed to be around 500 million years old, the giant footprint of 1.20 meters found in Swaziland, South Africa, estimated to be around 200 million years old, the sandal footprint found in Utah on a rock that is believed to be around 400 million years old, the Nevada sho print which is believed to be around 250 million years old, the fossilized human hand found in Colombia believed to be at least 100 million years old. these are just some of the findings that have been avoided by mainstream history and science. But is it possible that these findings are indications of Pre-Adamite civilizations?
Many researchers believe that highly advanced beings existed on Earth in the past, the evidence speaking of these beings can be found in ancient texts from different religions. The bible is one of them.
From all of the above we know that God did not create a planet empty nor in chaos, but Earth had become a desolate planet filled with destruction. Isaiah 45: 18 and Genesis 1: 2
We also know that God decides to ravage the land but not completely destroy it. Jeremiah 4: 27
We have found many pieces of evidence on our planet which confirm that after periods of civilized live on planet Earth, came cataclysms and destruction, but not a complete destruction of life on the planet. It is as if the planet restarted several times, with different beings, animals and life in general.
There is physical and Biblical evidence which indicates that possible existence of great cataclysms and catastrophes in the universe and on our planet which seem to support the idea that our planet passed through several stages in the distant past. We are surely not the first civilized beings that inhabited this planet.
