God Used Beer to Create Human Civilization

Posted by skiutah on Thursday, January 17, 2013

Scientists have found evidence humans began brewing alcohol 11,000 years ago in Turkey. Many experts believe that beer was a key component of early human societies that fueled the rise of human civilization. The article states “”Production and consumption of alcoholic beverages is an important factor in feasts facilitating the cohesion of social groups, … and in organizing collective work.”

Some questions:

11,000 years ago, why did God use alcohol to enable the rise of human civilization?

Did Eve look better to Adam only after Adam had quaffed a few beers? Thus ensuring the propagation of the human species.

Was the “apple” in the Garden of Eden (in Missouri) in reality applejack?

Why did God wait until 1833 (D&C 89) to instruct humans that beer was bad? Why not decree prohibition 11,000 years ago?

When God introduced polygamy into modern human society (D&C 132), did God foresee that polygamy and alcohol were a bad mixture? What was God thinking? Can you imagine?
