Of course, my fabulously bone-headed typo of "the FOOD of Noah" just lends all kinds of confusion when I was REALLY supposed to have typed "the FLOOD of Noah."

LOL! Permit me to give a brief philology lesson.

"Ante" means "before" and "diluvian" mean "of the flood." (The word "deluge" is a relative word of "diluvian".)

In other matters, the word "antebellum" is a word that means "before the war" (bellum means "war") and the phrase "antebellum" is only used by American scholars when referring to the time perdion right before the American Civil War. Sometimes you will read references to the "Antebellum South" which would be the American South before the Civil War.

Getting back to "antediluvian," that is a term usually only used by people when referring to the time period before the Great Flood of Noah. It's generally shied away from by scientists who see it as a word entirely co-opted by proponents of Creation Theory. The phrase is used to describe a pre-flood Earth where dinosaurs and humans both roamed around side-by side. But then the Flood of Noah supposedly caused a planetwide destruction of the Earth's surface. That catastrophe is used to explain the planet-wide comprehensiveness of the fossil record while still making allowances for the Earth to be less than 10,000 years old.

Outside of Creationist circles, the phrase "antediluvian" is also used in poetic and fanciful contexts to allude to what is descibed in some fanatsy works as a near-paradise of an Earth where an entirely dfferent--and better--eco-system existed, one that still bore echoes of the origial perfection of the Garden of Eden. So before the flood, the Earth was a far more beautiful place, and after the flood we had to settle for a much diminished eco-system that paled in comparison to what we had before the flood.

Back in the 1800's, many Christian writers (few of them were very good writers, btw) crafted elaborate fantasy stories about such a pre-flood Earth. And paintings were made depicting that idylic perfection that supposedly existed before the alleged flood.

OilLady Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2010   Writer
What do I study?

My degree is in education (I used to be a school teacher). But my current hobby is studying the petroleum industry. And my interest in petroleum stems from my concerns that we are soon going to be hitting global shortages in energy, especially energy from oil.

Here's an Xtranormal video I made a few weeks ago expressing some of my concerns about the future of oil.

[link]

Meanwhile, I have a novel I am working on right now which is a future dystopia set less than 10 years in the future. It depicts one possible vision of how dismal life might become for us in Western civilization if we start to hit any kind of shortages in the global oil supply. (So I guess my current artistic flare --at least at this point in my life-- is one that tries to glimpse the future rather than the past.)

Woah thats interesting, yeah I'm sure humanity will get into trouble with that, but hey we find ways. I think technology simply will come not out of money, but out of frustration, it always does and definitely in a time like now, in a very interesting time we live now. thanks for sharing! funny video. I think you will enjoy a movie called Waking Life [link] [link] , about many philosophies c:

One additional aspect of anediluvian Earth was the existence of the Nephilim. It has been argued by some Creation-leaning Christians that the only reason for the flood was God's desire to wipe out the Nephilim because they were an "unauthorized" race. And many other fanciful stories include mention of many dozens of other "unauthorized races" and species and plants and animals of all kinds that the story-writers assert God never intended. Thus the need for a planet-wide catastrophe to eliminate them all and start over again.

Met heeel veel mazzel kom je bij een gamestudio binnen waar ik je kan introduceren...maar da's naast concept art ook leren 3D-en. Dus ik zou ook zeker Henk's optie checken.
Met mij alles goed, maar zeker geen vakantie :) werk werk werk.
