The Great Flood of Noah's day was only about 4300 to 4400 years ago. Since that flood wiped everyone except Noah's family from off the earth, that means that the currency system isn't more than that old.

In addition, the currency almost assuredly wasn't used by Noah. What would he use it for? Any barter he did, would have been between him and his children and grand children, etc. Who needs money for that?

Probably the oldest money system that we could connect to is way less than 4000 years old.

I don't think a worldwide flood wiping out all but one family a little over 4000 years ago is exactly the consensus view forged through rational analysis of the available historical data these days.

You need to remember that the archeologists are paid by their university, etc., that is controlled by the political community, that tells them what to tell us, just so that they can remain in power.

Let me guess. Said archaeologists are paid via a revised version of the 5,000 year old payment system, the very system that Bitcoin was designed to replace so that future archaeologists are paid with IT.


"Archaeologists uncover what they claim to be some sort of computer device resembling a fan. Sadly, no other hardware was uncovered, thus safely assuming the entity that built it went bankrupt after amassing millions in pre-orders."

Wow, that is a pretty cool discovery.. I haven't seen this article yet. Let me read.

You do realize pyramids are older then that. As well as some trees. Trees for god sake. Not to mention a lot of other things that would not be possible if human population was reduced to one family.

Bitcoin is  also the first real WORLDWIDE currency. The previous currencies covered more limited areas...
This is not true. The dollar has been a worldwide currency for decades as many countries will only accept dollars and many others will accept it in addition to their local currency, while others will accept it but only unofficially.

The same was true with the British pound prior to the fall of the British Empire.

The same is not true for bitcoin as of now, although this may (at least in theory) change in the future

We are headed towards a worldwide currency, but I doubt it will be Bitcoin.

Not true.  Carbon dating and things like dinosaurs were invented and implemented by Satan.  The truth is that Noah was incestuous and we are all retarded as a result.

A new world wide currency has been decided upon by the people instead of a state..  Just saying.

Bitcoin still has a long way to go, but I like the direction it's heading!

ROFL, 10/10.

Glad you liked it, bud. I put a lot of effort into that funny.

There really are not that many worldwide currencies. We have the obvious dollar, the Euro is moving towards a reserve currency (although not as much in recent years), there are arguments for the british pound and japanese yen, moving away from fiat - there is gold and an argument for diamonds....and we have bitcoin. Other then that other currencies are really only accepted on a local basis

I wonder if that diamond argument you mentioned originated in Belgium.
