Gears from the Ancients

By Bethany Youngblood    
Byzantine sundial-cum-calendar

Gears and ancient man do not sound like two compatible subjects for a conversation. They just don't seem to mix within the mainstream view that ancient man lacked the intelligence to accomplish anything we see as modern or advanced.

But is it so out of proportion to think that the mathematical and mechanical knowledge necessary to construct something as common to us as a clock is limited only to our modern era? In reality this knowledge might simply be a rediscovered practice from our past. In other words, perhaps we forgot and have now relearned how to use this mathematical and mechanical knowledge.

Even inhabitants of the ancient world had to keep track of time. Don't you think they could have worked out ways to physically display it, like we do with our wristwatches today? Is it possible that they had actual mechanical devices to measure time, not just a sundial or an hourglass? There is fantastic evidence for just this, another marvel of ancient man's intelligence.

The Gospel is the core of history and the Bible, the entire Old Testament points forward to the cross and the New Testament points back to the cross. What Christ did for us in His death and resurrection is the focal point of time.

Ancient Man US Tour Postponed

After much consultation with the Ancient Man Tour Planning Team and due to various concerns, it has been decided that the Ancient Man US Tour scheduled for December 1-8 will be postponed.

It was a hard decision to make but due to several issues (i.e. weather concerns, tight schedule times, and closed sites) we have decided to cancel. We hope, plan and pray to reschedule the trip for sometime in the future. We believe this tour will be very valuable and we know it will be worth the wait.

Please stay connected with us for more updates about the future of this exciting trip.

Feel free to like us on Facebook or email us ( with any questions.

Thanks for understanding and please be praying for us as we look into new dates and other changes for the trip.

Baffling Ancient Technology

By Matthew Zuk

The Lycurgus Chalice

Advanced technology is typically viewed as a modern phenomenon, something that Ancient Man did not possess. However, there are many mind-boggling pieces of ancient technology that prove the incredible intellect of ancient man and baffle modern man.
