Gen 32:15  thirty milking camels and their calves, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys.


Sounds like if they knew the number then they were there.

Of course these people love stories like this as they miss the message of what the word says.

Like Ray says about Herbert Armstrong, he has all these degrees but does not have a clue what the kingdom is about,

Iíve noticed that I have changed in many ways since Bible Truths and the forum and one of them is living life much too seriously.

Another one is learning to rest in God and truly trust Him.

I'm still a work in progress.

If you look at the time line Kat posted, Abraham was born about 1995 BC.
They say in the article that camels were domesticated about 10,000 BC.
I reckon 8 thousand years is plenty of time for all the breaking and training of camels to have been done by the time Abraham came on the scene.

The article said 1000 BC not ten thousand.

You are correct Craig, my mistake.

The first thing that came to my mind when I viewed the video was the "horse whisperer". It was a short documentary about a famous horse trainer who didn't use a whip or any other type of force to train wild horses, but worked with the horses innate curiosity and need for attachment as in the herding instinct.
From that it seemed to me that if a group of men wanted to have beasts of burden to carry produce or to ride upon, then they certainly could have learned how to train them in one generation or less.

It seems that archaeologists of all stripes are stuck on the idea that mankind came into existence from the knuckle dragging, hairy cave man with no intellect or ability to care for themselves and learn how to build structures and subdue their environment to satisfy their physical needs and desires, which idea denies a creation by intelligent design.
