Scientists' First Discovery of Nuclear Family in Pre-Avraham Period
Interestingly, scientists have discoverd their earliest evidence of nuclear families in the "pre-history" period. This family seems to have lived about 4,600 years ago in Germany, which would put them 500 years before the flood and about 800 years before the time of Avraham. It would also mean that they lived in about the year 1,169 from the creation of the world, which would correspond to about the year 2592 B.C.E. Fascinating!
