In Ex 34:14 we see the word worship.  If you look below for the Hebrew reference to this word, you will see that in the definition is the phrase " fall down (flat)".  Not only did they fall down flat, they layed prostrate, crouched, stooped, and bowed.  So, yes, they were falling down flat at least 6,000 yrs ago.  This is nothing new.



Exo 34:14    (for you shall worship no other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God),



H7812   (Strong)



שׁחה



shâchâh



shaw-khaw'



A primitive root; to depress, that is, prostrate (especially reflexively in homage to royalty or God): - bow (self) down, crouch, fall down (flat), humbly beseech, do (make) obeisance, do reverence, make to stoop, worship.

Education/Credentials
There are no educational credentials in the field of Biblical word studies. It is a simple five step process. Pray for guidance. Identify a text that may have a physical and spiritual meaning. Identify the key words. Look the key words up in a concordance and read the text to obtain the spiritual meaning. Substitute the spiritual meaning into the original text.

I am not aware of anyone handing out awards for Bible studies but there are a number of religious leaders that have used my studiess.
