Evolutionists claim that humans (homo sapiens) have been around for 200,000 years with modern behavior for 50,000 years. 1 In light of this, it seems very peculiar that agriculture has been around for under 10,000 years. 2 3 4
Also of interest is the fact that evolutionists must claim that agriculture arose independently at least twice and up to several times. 5 This does not really make sense. A much better explanation is that God created man with a powerful mind to begin with, and so different peoples used agriculture in different parts of the world.

- Rhodes, 2012, p. 161: “Farming seems to have developed some ten thousand years ago, as the last glaciers retreated from Europe and Asia. Established communities and settlement followed and, with them, new skills and new crafts.” ↩
- Dawkins, 2004, p. 27: “The agricultural revolution began at the wane of the last Ice Age, about 10,000 years ago, in the so-called Fertile Crescent between the Tigris and the Euphrates. This is the cradle of human civilisation whose irreplaceable relics in the Baghdad Museum were vandalised in 2003, under the indifferent eyes of American invadors whose priorities led them to protect the Ministry of Oil instead. Agriculture also arose, probably independently, in China and along the banks of the Nile, and completely independently in the New World. An interesting case can be made for yet another independent cradle of agricultural civilisation in the astonishingly isolated highland interior of New Guinea.” ↩
