We really cannot be sure why God chose the specific time in history and the demographic locations he used to create the universe. It should not be a surprise as we read through Genesis it shows us the rich history of those many years ago and the disputes that are still arising today over religion and land in the Middle East. Religious disputes are still on the rise in these countries and with ease of travel to the United States many have been influenced by other theologies.
