Oldest structures, such as pyramids, are already very complex (Talk.Origins)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
- Evolution claims humans evolved gradually from apes. But the oldest structures, such as the pyramids, are already very complex.
Source: "Nowhere Man". 2003. What do the facts say? USENET post, 4 Apr. 2003.
Talk Origins didn't care to use a prominent source for this claim (and indeed the given post does not even mention the pyramids directly). A direct reference to the sudden appearance of the pyramids can be found in Donald Chittick's book The Puzzle of Ancient Man on page 79. The claim of sudden appearance of sophisticated architecture did not originate with creationists. Rather, Chittick presented a quotation from the earlier book Fingerprints of the Gods, in which the non-creationist Graham Hancock describes such findings.
