Stonehenge and the Biblical Timeframe

One of the most remarkable and recognizable places in the world is Stonehenge, bringing along a sense of mystery. There are numerous candidates for the original builders and their reasons for doing so, but those are only speculations.

Why was it built? Perhaps it is because it is on one of the alleged ley lines. Some people think it may have been a temple or healing center, possibly because of the unique bluestones (spotted dolomite) that were transported from Wales to the Stonehenge site. It has been determined that it was set up to be a perpetual calendar.

It was determined that Stonehenge was an astronomical calendar. The intelligence of the ancients fits the biblical timeframe and dispersion at Babel.

While Stonehenge was known to have astronomical aspects, it took many years to determine that its structure shows mathematical precision. The ancient builders knew that there would need to be adjustments made for leap years as well. (Remnants of the Cahokia Woodhenge were discovered in the 1960s. Although less ancient, its builders apparently made it to be a solar calendar as well. It doesn't seem to be on any "ley lines".) One reason people are astonished is because of Darwinist assumptions.

After humans supposedly evolved, they sat around for thousands of years before deciding get ambitious and build cities. Mayhaps their intelligence and consciousness was also evolving. However, discoveries were made that show the ancients were far more intelligent than expected. Meanwhile, biblical creationists say that humans were intelligent from creation. When people dispersed at Babel, they brought and used their knowledge in new places. One wonders how many things that have been invented or discovered were known long ago and basically rediscovered later.

It has long been thought that Stonehenge represented an ancient calendar and was used to mark the seasons, but until recently, exactly how this was done has remained elusive. Now, Professor Timothy Darvill (of the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, Bournemouth University, UK) has revealed Stonehenge’s solar secrets. In a 2022 research article published in the open access Antiquity Journal, Darvill outlines how Stonehenge was erected as a “perpetual calendar based on the 365.25 solar days in a mean tropical year.”
