WHEN DID ÖTZI THE ICEMAN LIVE
How have all you wonderful people been this last week? Hopefully you have faired better than I for I fell to a terrible cold or flu. I am still recovering from it but have lingering cough. Back in the old days something like this could have been fatal. Thank you Jesus for modern medicines!
Speaking of the old days and fatalities, when did Ötzi the Iceman live? And how did he die? For the first question,Secular scientists tell us he lived about 5,300 years ago and was at first assigned to the stone age because Ötzi had a flint dagger and arrow heads. However, a copper axe was also found with the Iceman. Secular archeologists then assigned him to the early European Copper Age stating that the transition from Stone
Since Ötzi lived in a cold region, known not only by the ice he was found in but also by his clothing; a fur coat, bearskin hat, fur leggings, and grass insulated boots, and some of his equipment; birchbark containers, hazel wood and dog wood shafts — trees found in cooler climates, an alpine swamp grass mat, and a dagger made from flint that came from the Lessini Mountains in Northern Italy.
The cold climate came from The Ice Age which occurredPost-Flood and gives us a clue as to when the Iceman lived. In the northern hemisphere The Ice Age started about 100 years after the flood during the 1st Post-Babel generation, and peaked near the end of the 3rd Post-Babel generation about 100 to 200 years later. Glacial decline occurred about halfway through the 5th and during the 6th Post-Babel generations. So It is reasonable to say Ötzi most likely lived sometime between the 2nd and 5th Post-Babel generations about 4,000 years ago. This of course would have been after the language split and dispersal mankind would still be occurring. It is not a
Once again the physical evidence, in this case what Ötzi carried with him, supports the Bible.
So how did Ötzi die? Was it exposure? Did he get lost and get caught in a storm? Or was it something else, something more sinister…
Find out next week! Until then,
God bless and take care,
