21. Hoerbiger's Theory [Books]
... From: In the Beginning: God by H. S. Bellamy CD Home | Contents In the Beginning: God II Hoerbiger's Theory None of the mythologists who have hitherto investigated into cosmogonic myths generally, or into the Creation' and related reports in the Book of Genesis specially, seems to have invoked the aid of a theory of the life history of our Earth. This is not surprising, though, for none of the geological, biological, or astrophysical hypotheses appeared even partly helpful. On the contrary, most of these hypotheses, or rather, their professors, were definitely antagonistic. I shall not here enter into a discussion, criticism, or refutation of the ...
22. Conclusion (In the Beginning: God) [Books]
... From: In the Beginning: God by H. S. Bellamy CD Home | Contents In the Beginning: God XVII Conclusion With this we have exhausted the mythological material contained in the Book of Genesis. In the light of Hoerbiger's Theory of the satellites of the Earth the different myths revealed new interesting, and exciting meanings, meanings moreover, which had never been attributed to them before. When we now look back upon the material we have discussed it is not without a certain regret chiefly, that it was so scanty and so fragmentary. Yet Hoerbiger's Theory helped us to gain a satisfactory picture in spite of the lacunae caused by the tooth of time and by the ...
23. The Creation of the Earth -- the First Account [Books]
... and it was so]. (28) And God blessed them, and .. . said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth .. . (ii. 1) Thus the heaven and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. Everyone who has read through the first chapter of Genesis many times and who has not, marvels again and again at the ordered, lucid, and matter-of-fact way in which its priestly compiler has set forth his material. If any adjective is attributable to the P account of creation it is the word scientific'. To describe something scientifically is to explain it as correctly and adequately as possible ...
24. The Creation of the Earth -- the Second Account [Books]
... From: In the Beginning: God by H. S. Bellamy CD Home | Contents In the Beginning: God V The Creation of the Earth- the Second Account Besides the scientific' creation report the first chapter of the Book, of Genesis also contains other material. Though from external evidence it belongs to the P' group, closer investigation immediately; shows that it must be derived from quite a different source. In sentiment and tenor it is more related to the material which makes up the second chapter of the Book of Genesis. It is very fragmentary, but those few passages that we find are most precious. They are evidently drawn from an early mythological ...
25. Abraham In Egypt [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . a person of some historical stature. This is supported by the fact that many peoples, including the Arabs, recognised him as their forebear; and indeed there is good evidence to suggest that Arab traditions regarding him were not derived from the Hebrews. Modern scholarship now generally agrees that Abraham was a real person. The accounts preserved in Genesis have an authentic flavour, and must contain more than a germ of historical truth. John Bright for example remarked on the fact that the evidence forbids us to dismiss the patriarchs [i .e . Abraham and his immediate descendants] as legendary, and the picture of them presented... is not in the least mythological. ...
26. Genesis and Extinction [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: The Lately Tortured Earth, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN Genesis and Extinction Man is an exceptional creature, creative and destructive. He is a walking catastrophe for other kinds of life. Rashmi Mayur, in agitating for a "Kalotic World Order," projects that mankind will extirpate most species of life within this generation in exchange for 1.5 billion more people. J.W . Carpenter has cited estimates that 25% of all existing species may become extinct by the year 2000 [1 ]; this is not the work of man alone perhaps, for the Earth itself may be enduring a longer-term decline stemming from its ancient cosmic ...
27. The Repeopling of the Earth [Books]
... by rather close family ties; or, the powers of nature slaying indiscriminately, there may have been a dearth of men, or of women, among the survivors: the choice of partners will have been in many cases very limited. But we must allow, the myths to speak for themselves. According to the usual narrow interpretation of Genesis i. 27, God created only one man and one woman. This, of course, means that their sons necessarily had to seek partners for propagation among their own sisters. We need, perhaps, not enter into any further discussion of the severe inbreeding which was necessary to safeguard the coming into existence again of a tribe. ...
28. The Cities of the Plain [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... ruined cities excavated by Walter Rast and R. Thomas Schaub at Bab edh-Dhra', Numeira, Feifa, Khanazir, and Safi[1 ] do not seem to have raised the interest one would have expected despite the fact that the excavators themselves have tentatively identified the sites in question as the "lost" Cities of the Plain described in Genesis. The discovery of Sodom and Goniorrah- to say nothing of Admah, Zeboirn, and Zoar (also known as Bela and/or Segor)- should have caused excitement in the biblical world. The last thing one would have expected is resentment- and yet one prominent scholar was ignoble enough to threaten withdrawal of his support of ...

30. The Early Assyrian King List, The Genealogy of the Hammurapi Dynasty, and the "Greater Amorite" Tradition [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Kraus for AKL. What is more, comparison of the Babylonian and Assyrian King lists, headed by essentially identical putative eponyms, indicates a common genealogical tradition, whether historically based or of mere scribal deduction- one most likely shared by early West Semitic tribes in general. A similar consciousness of common ancestors is evident in the genealogical tables of Genesis... The author of this statement goes on to show some general points of contact within this shared ancestral heritage. In the light of these interconnecting pieces of evidence, however, we should take a closer look at the biblical genealogies, all the more so since we have already seen a possible connection between the biblical Dedan and ...
