Here is a great article showing the difficulty and assumptions necessary of dating stone age man. Use this as a reference for best interpreting human history. It shows evidence of how different “stages” of human innovation that has supposed occurred over tens or hundreds of thousands of years could be understood better as actually contemporaneous groups of dispersing people within only a few thousand years till now since the flood. In fact, the article gives evidence that “the Paleolithic, Neolithic and Chalcolithic could well be contemporary” with each other and not slow progression over long ages.
The article also gives evidence of wetter conditions all over the world – better explaining post-flood dispersion and migration. The wetter conditions would also cause mud-brick construction to not last as long and thus cause faster build-up of sand/strata/till layers found in caves and building up city tels considerably quickly (not over tens or hundreds of thousands of years).

Also here is my answer on Twitter: That is a really good point. But remember, when dealing with the past we have to make a lot of assumptions. We do have evidence (a stone tool for example), but we have to make a lot of assumptions to figure out its history and age. This article does a great job showing the assumptions necessary for interpreting the evidence and shows evidence of how “the Paleolithic, Neolithic and Chalcolithic could well be contemporary” with each other and not slow progression over long ages.
