So what was lost in the floods? Mankind moved inland, but his prior civilization was no doubt along the coasts. So what was lost? Technology. Technology comes from the built up inter-working between the parts of society... over a long period of time. The pyramids were a way of life, the technology to design and build a pyramid is probably the highest achievement of mankind, it likely took tens of thousands of years for mankind to achieve that. Everything is built on the technology that came before, it takes generations upon generations to realize an entire civilization of advanced thought. Then the floods drowned all that. It was all lost. The earth was not void and totally water covered - as it was in Genesis 1:2 - but the civilization and the technology it spawned was lost. Man started over from scratch, became a hunter gatherer... lived in caves... this was post flood human civilization. Slowly we began to put the pieces back together. The laws came first... how to live like a human, instead of an animal... and eventually society started to function again. When civilization finally came back, the technology started to recover. We are still recovering technology today. And we have a ways to go before we are ready to build a pyramid, we are still figuring out what they are, and how they work, and we have such backward governments still today that they fight against progress; they look into technology that kills man, but they stymie technology that provides a better living for man. Man has always been taught by the gods. The gods came down and lived amongst us. Now we are arriving at a point where God is going to resurrect humans to come down and live amongst us, and teach us, and heal us. Lead us forward. Hopefully they will be able to get the pyramids working again for us. Beating swords into plowshares = turning our technology from war to peace. Pyramid technology is peaceful technology. And funny enough, there's healing in them as well. It has to be more than a coincidence that we finally are beginning to learn about the pyramids just as the time has come up on the first resurrection of mankind. We are about to enter a thousand year period of peace and healing for the nations, but not before we damn near destroy the species with our warring technology, so we understand that we have to go after the technology that promotes peace and healing, not war.
