Evolution or Creation?

What happened in the past 10,000 years, the development of our civilization, can be called sensational. Ancient civilizations like the Sumerians, Akkadians, Elamites, Phoenicians and Egyptians seem to have suddenly arisen out of nowhere.

They had knowledge, science and culture. The development of the human race hugely increased in speed in the last 10,000 years, compared to the millions of years before it. If homo erectus originated 1,7 million years ago or even earlier, then what happened all that time until the ancient civilizations emerged? Did homo erectus go extinct, like the Neanderthal, or did he evolve into modern man?
From the ancient cultures, also those in South and Middle America, their legends and religions, it seems that man did not evolve out of apes, but that man was created by God(s). It seems that Gods taught man how to grow corn and grape, how to make wine, how to use mathematics to create structures. Indications of this emerge from all ancient cultures, on each continent of the earth.

There evidence is not only in stories, but also in actual constructions like pyramids, cities, temples. The fascinating geometrical structures in the Nazca lines, the Puma Punku temples, the pyramids in Egypt and numerous other archeological finds are proof of a high level of technology – thousands of years ago! This leads us to the question: did ancient aliens create man and give him civilization?
