Evidence That Early Mankind Were ‘Experts’ With Pitch

So use on Noah’s ark should have been no problem


"Make thee an ark of gopher wood; with rooms shalt thou make the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch" (Genesis 6:14).

This was the command God gave Noah to survive the worldwide deluge. And thanks to (relatively) recent discoveries, we now know that early mankind not only used pitch, but were experts with it.

If you have followed Watch Jerusalem for very long, you’ll know that we identify the biblical Flood of Noah’s day with the Quaternary Extinction Event—the end of the "Ice Age"—and the prior human prehistory with the biblical antediluvian world, from Adam to Noah (see our article "The Prehistoric World vs. Genesis" for more information). Numerous elements of this prehistoric Cenozoic world fit with the biblical account found in the earliest chapters of Genesis. And now, so does the use of this simple, yet overlooked, ingredient.
