Time and Populations

Well, Coyote, this thread is about flood evidence relative to population and whether the flood hypothesis trumps the million man hypothesis.
While I am not Coyote, I am curious as to what timeline you are referring to. According to your calculations, when was this global flood, was it the commonly accepted date of 2350 BCE? Given that, when was the Akkadian Empire? The Indus Valley civilization? The Longshan culture in China? Are the pyramids and monuments all pre-flood, post-flood or a mix? How about others? Is it OK that we assume there were actual people who built these cities instead of aliens or devils in order to trick historians and archeologists?
Does the flood only apply to "white" people (sorry, had to ask)? (yeah I know, serious snark - but if flood in all other religions, show me the quote and the time)
Please provide some timeline as to what is the past. If you don't know, please ask your masters to provide a timeline. Please do something to support your position in regard to the timescale, even if it is only your arbitrary decision as to such a timeline.
If you can't give us the time, you can't give us the truth.

The idea of the sacred is quite simply one of the most conservative notions in any culture, because it seeks to turn other ideas - uncertainty, progress, change - into crimes.
