A scientific analysis of a subject as involved as the origin of the earth and
its creatures merits a glimpse at every source of illumination. Considering that
any objective has a 360° perimeter, obviously approaches may vary; and if
surrounding conditions are variable the problems are multiplied further.
Translators and copyists have often added their own interpretations to ancient
records, which must be carefully detected, and yet in spite of these we have
today a great deal of knowledge concerning ancient thinking. The production of a
feasible Cosmogony, from hearsay, by unspiritual pagans was not simple and
changed with progress, just as our science has discarded many concepts commonly
accepted for long periods. The important distinction between the Author of the
Star Gospel, the Pyramid Ideology, and the Bible is that He obviously expected
His thinking to be challenged by men of later generations, while those who
compiled the pagan cosmogonies did not. The main problem associated with
spiritual illumination concerning the work of EL ELOHE ISRAEL is conformity to
Divine revelation and thinking and then harmonization with natural fact, not
theory. The big fault is oversimplification. In this respect the ancients were
no better and no worse than the present generation. Spiritual illumination has
always demanded more than just mental effort and blind acceptance; it merits
spiritual endowment that commands allegiance. IF YOU ABIDE IN MY WORD
truly you are my Disciples and Ye shall know the truth and the
truth shall make you free (John 8:31, 32) elevates such exposition into the
highest possible form of teaching, but the “ye” implies self- alignment,
receptivity and cooperation for provisional endowment.
However, there were many noble and righteous men among the
ancients, and we can profitably investigate their writings for the majority of
both good and bad contain seed thoughts which flowed from a common origin.
Cuneiform clay tablets from 4000 to 3500 B.C. attributable
to the first Adamic
have been unearthed in the Euphrates valley. The first mention of “book” in the
this is the book . . . of the generations of Adam and was probably copied by Noah from Adamic records. Noah, knowing that judgment was soon to fall upon the ungodly
antediluvians inscribed a record which revealed that:
From the beginning, YHWH/YAHUWAH had tried to deal with non-conformists by pleading rather than
outlines descent of a godly patriarchal line who did maintain a high level of
culture, ethics, industry and prosperity
amidst human barbarism by followers of
an appalling picture of the maniacal wickedness which threatened the extinction
of all good men because they were hopelessly outnumbered.
Outside of the settled city-states a savage form of socialism prevailed without
restraint which encouraged thievery, sexual debauchery, murder and slavery; and
so the Deluge was sent to preserve the human race for a better civilization.
Only eight persons were spared. Afterwards cannibalism, murder, and the drinking
of blood were forbidden, and a new form of human government instituted.
original MALKI TZEDIK language and alphabetical characters were universally
understood up to the time of the Babel dispersion is evident, although there was
an Akkadian dialect in northern Sumeria before the flood. Thus, while lapse of
memory, variations in colloquial usage and selfish tribal motives may partially
account for differences in the ancient cosmogonies, it is obvious that the
confusion of tongues seriously affected uniformity in thought, Variations in
ancient mythologies also contain so many distortions of partial truths that we
must be warned that even tribal religious literature contains much superstition
and imaginative material. But even though these pagan peoples added local color
and legendary characters it is not too difficult to trace them back to the
original through similarity of principals and details. Babel was near Babylon,
founded by Nimrod, grandson of Ham, the second son of Noah.

Noah himself went east, and Shem elected to stay in
the homeland of Sumeria, as predicted.
It would be Shem, therefore, and his
posterity, who would be most apt to have kept the authoritative ancient records
which had been preserved.
Shem had five sons, among them Arphaxad,

gotta go skiing ..... and through him, Heber, the line continues
through Peleg, Reu, Serog, Nahor, Terah, and Abraham.
The Hebrews derived their
name from Heber because they spoke his language (although Abraham is called the
father of Isaac, who's the father of Jacob/Israel/Joseph I2 Tribes - because of his Divine call and faith in YHWH/YAHUWAH ).
Heber was about
47 years old during the dispersion (several hundred years before Abram), which
necessitated revision and invention of language characters and forms of
expression. There is considerable evidence to show that Heber correlated the
letters of the ancient Hebrew alphabet, some of which doubled for
numbers, and which was quite similar to the original MALKI TZEDIK , in order to
perpetuate the sacred writings and his name was therefore given to those who
spoke and used his dialect.
The original Hebrew language, like the Semitic, consisted of 16 letters, no
vowels, five of which had different forms when used as finals. (Vowels,
punctuation marks and additional letters came later.) It was a simplification of
the original MALKI TZEDIK , and enabled the Hebrews to read the sacred clay tablets
they had inherited from Noah. The civilized groups among the earliest
were by no means savages. The remains of clay tablet libraries, well-designed
civic buildings and temples show that they were fond of literature, song,
jewelry and social amenities and were industrious and inventive. Families
grouped together in city-states for protection from surrounding bandits and
savages, employed four-wheeled battle chariots, the solid phalanx battle
and leather helmets, and followed city rulers who combined civic and
duties. Temples were used as money depositaries, schools, and places of worship,
and few idols were found among their remains because they apparently worshipped
the Spirit of YHWH/YAHUWAH . Language and writing was soon polysyllabic for early temples
held grammatical tablets wherein characters were listed with corresponding
phonetic signs in simple syllables. Hieroglyphics probably originated here,
which explains their use on monuments in Sinai, the Pyramid, and later in Egypt.
They employed irrigated agriculture, servile animals for transportation and
work, metal working in copper both cast and formed, tin and bronze, textile
weaving, and cosmetics and beautiful gold jewelry for embellishment of the
ladies. As Adam’s descendants increased they built city-states at Ur, Erich, Sumer, Eridu, Logosh, Nippor, and Zippur. The British Museum has some 30,000
clay tablets taken from this area which reflect the early MALKI TZEDIK culture
during the first 20 centuries of intellectual men. Tablet shapes varied from
flat squares and rectangles to hollow cylinders and prisms. Characters were
first placed in vertical columns and read downward from left to right, but later
the custom changed and they were read horizontally. We are indebted to Collier’s
Encyclopedia for the following chronology of historic periods for this

That the civilized
MALKI TZEDIK were not only a very literate
people but also very religious, is shown by their use of numerous religious
symbols and their application of religious principle to everyday life. Their
Temples with an outer court, Holy place, and inner Holy of Holies, were
indicative of a form of worship similar to that of the Hebrews under Moses. They
sang hymns, looked to YHWH/YAHUWAH as their Great Physician in sickness, and protector in
trouble, and symbolized the “tree of life” on numerous monuments and artifacts
as their eternal hope, based on the coming Redeemer’s sacrifice. Their sacred
writings reflect a knowledge of Creation, the Star Gospel, a work similar to the
book of Job, the prehistoric proximity of
heaven and earth, and many other
invaluable to Theological Science. That YHWH/YAHUWAH singularly blessed their industry is
obvious. MALKI TZEDIK engraving and lapidary work is unsurpassed in the ancient
world, They cultivated grain cereals, used a mechanical seeder, carts and
chariots with iron and leather tires long before others even had a wheel. They
constructed tombs and mortuaries rivaling those of Egypt in a much later day.
With the advent of early Babylonian Astrology, a perversion of the Star Gospel,

King of Babylon (around 1900 B.C.), set up a code of laws bearing his name
affecting nearly every aspect of human life, but it is now generally conceded
that he only collected previous MALKI TZEDIK principles, revised them and tabulated
them in systematic order. We now also know that the beautiful architectural
forms used by the later Babylonians originated with the earlier MALKI TZEDIK .
MALKI TZEDIK dairies sold strained milk, business men used intelligent legal forms
and money values. Foreign materials indicate extensive trade and commerce, while
clay tablets found list a school boy’s work in mathematics, grammar and ethics,
with his teacher’s corrections.
Extensive archeological explorations in this area prove beyond
question what the Bible has long attested—that among these earliest of the
ancients were wise men of renown, well-versed in the arts and sciences, common
law, and social conventions to encourage amicable relations between men. Their
knowledge and culture became the pattern for
ancient peoples but was not always followed, obeyed, or respected by the
ungodly. And when it became obvious after the flood that the leaders would unite
all at Babel in rebellion against judgment rather than submit to instruction and
correction, the Creator wisely scattered them by confusion and disunity to make
each man responsible for his own doings. We should therefore be most grateful to
those who did try to preserve their knowledge, literature, history and cultural
details for the generations following. Writing was a complicated art, materials
were not plentiful, or easily procured, and like education, which is best
appreciated by those who have an education, writing was often left to those who
felt duty- bound to perpetuate their knowledge. Perhaps this explains why they
used clay tablets baked for permanence. There are probably more of these
available today than parchment paper, or leather from the first century A.D.,
and since decipherment of the cuneiform, they are probably more informative in
spite of cracks and fragmentation. Therefore from the criteria of chronological
time, cultural and ethical standards, accuracy and faithfulness of reproduction,
language and writing development, religious customs and preservation of the
original tenets and symbols, we must look to the Semites or peoples of central
Asia for the best accounts of Creation. It is obvious that they were the most
the ancients before the flood. The post-diluvium cosmogonies derived
from later cultures are obviously distortions of the Noahic original which
reflect the confusion of the dispersion.
The contents of most non-biblical cosmogonies also show the influence of pagan
priests, many of whom believed that their imaginations should be accepted as
revelations of the gods. Since the YHWHly line of Patriarchs had received many
spiritual revelations from YHWH/YAHUWAH and were recognized by the people as leaders,
and priests, they were imitated by ungodly leaders and their appointed priests
who had no experience with spiritual illumination from Heaven but
usurped some of the ideas of the real and supplied imaginative details to suit
the people they ruled for gain-seeking purposes.
In addition, pagan priests drew upon family
experiences and relations to describe the caprices and activities of the gods
whose images they were, and we thus find fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers,
and other relatives among the gods, and characters of their cosmogonies. Some
are almost duplicates of earlier cosmogonies but with different names to suit
national or tribal vanities. We have tried, in the interest of economizing the
reader’s time and effort, to include only the best and most logical cosmogonies
and to list the interesting and relevant phrases. Including all the material
would add very little to our understanding of ancient thinking on Creation. Some
peoples or nations had two or more in different areas or different times, but
with the exception of the Phoenicians (who had three,
all different), for the others we will give but one.
We are indebted to Philo
for the main Phoenician Cosmogony.
it from the works of Sanchioniatho, Phoenician priest-historian who lived about
1250 B.C. The Phoenician religion was based on the worship of heavenly bodies,
their god Moloch corresponding to the Babylonian Baal, or Sun-god (accepted as
lord of heaven). The first theory, in part, includes, “beginning all was dark
and stormy atmosphere in a state of unconsciousness. Then the spirit was moved
to the eternal beginnings, and a commingling took place, which intermingling was
called desire (Pothos). This desire is the beginning of all things but this did
not know the creation of itself and from the commingling of itself and the wind,
Moch (Moloch) was produced. (This some say is mud and others a putridity of
water mixture.) And from this same Moch (mud) sprang all the seeds of creation,
and it is the genesis of the universe.” The account is probably a distortion of
the Adamic Cosmogony distantly removed. The authors had heard of the spirit
which they likened to wind. They were unaware of the prehistoric creation, the
judgment upon it, and the re-creation which took place under the Spirit of YHWH/YAHUWAH
(Gen. 1:2) but since evidence of chaos lay all about the first few generations,
since plant seeds sprouted from the ground, they credited the sun-god with the
origin of life. It is a mixture of half truths and myths.
The second theory included, “There arose from the wind (Kolpia)
and from his wife Boan (Light), which being interpreted as night, Aeon (the age)
and Protoganos (the first born) mortal man so named. Aeon procured his food from
the trees,” etc. This account also sounds like a distorted duplication by
someone who had heard parts of the Mosaic account or possibly even the earlier
Adamic version. The implications of Spirit, light and darkness, men who had
become mortal, and the association with trees, all point to the Cosmo-Theology
of Adam. Light and darkness are often used to symbolize good and evil.
The third theory of the Phoenicians, probably the latest,
includes in part, “the cosmogony of Byblos concerning Uranos and Cronos. They
afterwards called Uranos heaven; so that from him indeed the firmament above us
by reason of its surpassing beauty they called Uranos. To him the above
mentioned pair was born a sister who was called Ge (earth) and it was because of
her beauty they so named her. Their father having ended his life in combat in
the open air was honored as a god, to whom his children offered libations and
sacrifices. Uranos having taken possession of the government of his father, took
to wife his sister Ge, and had by her three children, El, who is also Cronos,
Baetyl and Dagon, who is the same with Siton and Atlas. By his other wives
Uranos had also a large family. Astarte, the moon, was a daughter of Uranos.”
There is not much in these to merit serious consideration except
as they embody seed thoughts of an original or as a source of ancient mythology.
The implication of polygamy hardly qualifies the theory as descriptive of the
noble gods, but rather a justification for human lusts. In the original form
which Philo translated, the earth was called Adamah (or areth), the first
being derived from Adam, and the second merely a different spelling of earth.
worship of the mother of god, which they had
undoubtedly derived from the Babylonians
was specially celebrated in the shrine of Opheka, at Byblos, near the river
Adamis. When the Egyptians subjugated part of this eastern Mediterranean area
(1680-1560 B.C.), they absorbed this idea and carried it back to Egypt
from where it was probably conveyed to Rome. Most Phoenicians looked upon the
stars and planets as members of a family whom they judged by their own family
relations, including polygamy and marriage between kin.
The early Scandinavian Cosmogony
includes, “the giant Ymer represents the chaotic state of the earth, produced by
the combined effects of heat and cold upon water, which according to the
mythical creed of most nations was the first existing matter.” This, a later but
most unique cosmogony, also deals with the re-creation but includes volcanic
action, the ice ages, and terrible water turbulence which accompanied the
catastrophe, or judgment upon the prehistoric earth. This antedated the creation
of Adam by hundreds of years but certainly followed the original creation by
billions, during the long geological eras. There is truth in the account since
the author admits that most creation legends were based on myths. But the author
sounds like one who had heard the Adamic version and over many years had
forgotten the details.
The ancient Chinese Cosmogony begins with Fohi who reportedly
ruled in 2950 B.C. but since there is little definite evidence of antediluvian
habitation in this area, the date might be questioned. Some students of Chinese
history believe this to be Noah who migrated in this direction after the
Dispersion (2234 B.C.). Others believe that Cain fathered the yellow races but
this also is doubtful. The early ancestor worship and Taoism of the Chinese
ancients included a supreme being but little explanation of his creative acts.
The creation of earth was followed by the rule of three emperors, one of heaven,
one of earth, and one of men. Confucius, (550 B.C.) makes no mention of a
Divine Creator. Buddhism and Shintoism (Japan) did not develop until later and
add little to creation knowledge.
The Indian or Hindi cosmogony includes an ever existent divine
being who expresses and reveals himself in nature and all living things. Brahma,
the first creation of this eternal being, is credited with making the other
living forms. Polytheism was not original with them, but transmigration of souls
seems to have originated here. This Indian ideology is neither new,
very ancient, in its concept of a supreme being from eternity, who created
(creator and lord), Vishnu (the preserver) and Siva (the destroyer), in
It seems likely that the original, of which the above features represent partial
and distorted versions, was carried here by an early migration after the
Deluge. Brahmanism is based on the Vedas, or Vidas, sacred writings of Manu, the
earliest form of Indian religion. Somewhere between the 10th and 6th century
B.C., Buddhism arose as a refinement of Brahamism. It retained many of the
original ideas but laid more emphasis upon self-denial as an evidence of moral
virtue. Neither add much to the knowledge of Creator, or methods.
The VATICAN / Egyptian cosmogony combines worship of the heavenly bodies,
natural phenomena, and creature forms. Ptah was the creator, Neph the spirit of
creation, Ammon the king of the gods, and Osiris/Dollar Bill and Isis/T/Errorism represented the male
and female powers of nature.
Evil was personified by Typhom, (similar to the
Persian Ahriman). The most celebrated animal was the bull, Apis, symbol of
Osiris, EXODUS 32; fertilizing power of nature.
They believed in transmigration of the soul
into animals, which after a series or sequence of such would return to the human
body. The early Egyptians
recognized seven MASTERS principal gods, and many lesser deities, some of which resemble
the gods of the Babylonians
mummification became desirable and a real art.
Ancient Egyptian records include 15
dynasties of gods, 8 dynasties of demi-gods,
15 dynasties of Sethians,
which were followed by 30 later dynasties of their own kings. Whether such ideas
were the results of fertile imaginations, or applied to prehistoric earth is
difficult to determine.
There is considerable evidence of some ancient beliefs
in a prehistoric rule of earth by inner dimensional Fallen Angels. Most pagan cosmogonies began creation with the
Catastrophe, but the ancient Egyptian reflects ancient MALKI TZEDIK influence and
knowledge of a prehistoric earth which ended in chaos.
That the earth is billions of years in age, and that prehistoric men did exist,
we have no doubt; but we have yet to find any evidence contradictory to the
Bible teaching that Adam was the first MALKI TZEDIK “living soul” man with language,
inventive ability, and scientific knowledge, and that he was created around 4I70
B.C. Geological evidence, human remains reflecting the revolution between paleolithic and neolithic cultures,
and the best of ancient records all
support this concept.
The early Greek cosmogony was in many respects similar to the
Egyptian, in the worship of the powers of nature, heavenly bodies, and mythical
heroes and heroines at which they were adept. Principal god was Zeus, a male
divinity, whose wife Dionne was the mother of Aphrodite, goddess of love and
fertility. Greek mythology was apparently an effort to recognize all the forces
of nature which contribute so much to the health, wealth, and happiness of
humans. Later, as Greek knowledge and influence increased, they expanded their
to become one of the most glamorous and mythical of all, but of very
little value to Theological
Uranos, the god of gods, with his sons and
grandsons created the heavens and the earth, and mortal men of which they were
worthy representatives. But Thales, Empedocles, Plato, and others challenged
these mythical concepts in due time, and as one of them said, the
heavens, earth and creatures were created “not from any action of mind or any
god . . . but by
the action of chance,” an evolutionary hypothesis foreign to the present laws of
genetics. The early Greeks were hero worshippers, often raising local persons to
the rank of national deities.
They made beautiful statues of their chief gods and goddesses and encouraged the
people to pay proper homage to them. The golden age of Greece has thus added
much for the philosopher to ponder over, but contributed little of value to
The Iranian Cosmogony, which includes ideas from the Medes and
Persians, is a most interesting one since it originated near the cradle of
civilization; for Iran is adjacent to Iraq, or Sumeria of old (the Biblical
Shinar) which included Eden after the Garden of Eden. This cosmogony classifies
all existence into two moral forms, good and evil. Sevane Akrene, that is
uncreated time, created Ormuzd representing Good, and Ahriman as being Evil.
They in turn created all things, worlds, and creatures. Ormuzd dwelt in life and
light, but Ahriman in darkness and death, and the two were in constant warfare
with one another. Some very ancient Iranian writings, deciphered in the 18th
century, are in close agreement with the Biblical account although perhaps
compiled before the Mosaic Pentateuc. (This may not be true. Others credit them
to Zoroaster who lived many centuries later, 600 B.C.). According to these
ancient writings, man became a mortal through the sin of his first parents, and
because of their disobedience found himself in the center of the battle between
Ormuzd and Ahriman. Possessing the power of choice but weak in comparison to
Ormuzd and Ahriman and their agents, man must constantly follow Ormuzd, light
and good, or fall into the hands of Ahriman.
Considered as non-Biblical ideology it is amazingly similar to
the Genesis account. It is also in agreement with the knowledge of the earliest
astronomers who could interpret the Star Gospel in the signs and constellations.
And although not inspired, it adds verification to Biblical cosmogony by
similarity among neighboring peoples. These must have had good cause for
perpetuating this unpopular and humiliating account, especially among pagans who
often worshipped men as gods. The Bible stands on a solid factual basis with its
data, and peculiar
construction by a Divine hand, as well as in its employment
of the original Hebrew and Greek
languages and numerics.
But since these ancient writings are probably much earlier, the
ancestors of the Iranians must have had access to the Star Gospel, and their
hope of the
promised Redeemer sponsored the continued interest in this Cosmo-theology.
The Babylonian cosmogonies, including the later Chaldean, are
somewhat beclouded by the injection of astrology and divination or star readings
for foretelling non-religious events. The Chaldeans particularly drew from the
Zodiacal signs spurious meanings foretelling events and personal fortunes
perverting the original purpose of the signs and their celestial
The sun and moon were regarded as principal deities, with the stars and planets
next in line. Baal, Bel, or Beleus, was supposed to have founded Babylon
as a center of glory and wealth, and the moon goddess called Mylitta was the
patron of productive nature. The worship of these two as male and female gods
with the stars as their offspring sponsored a degrading influence among
worshipper who looked upon them as possessing sexual passions and since they so
carried on their intimate relations, the people felt license to do likewise.
Their temples became houses of prostitution, and the true worshippers of Elohim
were later wisely forbidden to associate with them. The later Phoenician worship
of Moloch and Ashtoreth was similar in many ways and was probably derived from
the Babylonian. The metal statues of Baal and Moloch were hollow with the
provision for burning fuel within to bring them to an intense heat. When red
hot, human sacrifices, usually helpless infants, were thrown into the arms or
bosoms of the statue and cremated or roasted to death in agony. This practice
was forbidden after the Persian domination through Hebrew influence but it is a
fact that the Babylonians, Phoenicians, Carthagians, Arameans, Syrians, and even
the Israelites when backslidden from Elohim, thus sacrificed their infants
hoping to avert famine or misfortune. This custom along with the temple
debauchery was so distasteful to the Creator that the ground areas as well as
the peoples were cursed with non-productivity and ruin. Although the Star Gospel
prevailed among certain families in the land of Sheba, Abram was early
encouraged to leave Babylonia for Canaan land, and his descendants found their
way to Egypt to the vicinity of the Pyramid, where they grew in numbers and
flourished until the Exodus. Thus while tradition indicates that Abraham had
durable records taken from Babylonia when he left, the quality of Babylonian
cosmogonies so close to the site of Eden is disappointing. Perhaps the best
records were reduced to rubble or have never been found.
There are, however, two other Babylonian creation accounts worth
first a product of Babylonian priests, consisting of six or seven
tablets in fragments of some129 or 160 lines each,
deals primarily with Tiamat
the mother of Creation and her husband Apsu who produced the other gods of
heaven and earth. Tiamat was also the dragon of Chaos, and when her husband was
killed in a battle with Ea, she became so disturbed that she created general
chaos only to be defeated by Marduk (Merodach). The account attempts to supply a
mythical explanation for the state of chaos which confronted the first few
generations of Adamic peoples and is difficult to date (probably 2200 to 2000
B.C.). It outlines the re-creation after the Catastrophe, not the original
creation. The characters are mythical and their activities imaginary.
The Gilgamesh Epic, long attributed to Assurbanipal
because parts thereof were
found in his libraries, undoubtedly originated in Babylonia, since fragments in
the older Babylonian script have been found in the
ruins there. Gilgamesh may have been a popular hero
whose exploits so endeared him to his subjects that they worshipped him as a
epic is a mystical story involving two central characters and their origins,
earthly life, and abode of the dead, but adds little to creation facts.
The oldest of the non-Biblical pagan cosmogonies is the ancient
Sumerian-Akkadaian which must be pieced together from fragmentary and primitive
sources. From contact with those who faithfully worshipped the invisible Spirit
of YHWH/YAHUWAH , others soon developed a naturism or fetish-worship in which creatures,
natural phenomena, and even inanimate objects
possessed or were possessed by
spirits. It was a form of Shamaism similar to that still practiced
who follow witch-doctors, medicine-men, and mediums with supposedly supernatural
powers. With the advance of City-States, each settlement developed its own patron god and lesser deities;
as lords of the air, of the seasons, of the winds, of the seas and lands, but
most pagans seem to have worshipped the sun-god who produced the crops, provided
warmth, and established the seasons. But that there were many followers of the
Star Gospel, even as late as 2000 B.C. is shown by the sacred clay tablets and
numerous Temples which were similar to the later Tabernacle of Moses in the
wilderness, and whose religious ceremonies appear to have resembled those of the
Hebrews. The Holy Place, the Altar, the morning and evening sacrifice, the meat
and drink offerings, the sin offering, and the shew-bread all were part of the
early MALKI TZEDIK Temple ritual. The remains of what once must have been a most
beautiful Temple of this order have been found among the ruins of east Babylon
but we cannot be sure of its allegiance in later times.
The ancient Adamic-Noahic-Hebrew Cosmogony will be dealt with in
a later chapter
with excerpts from modern theories on the subject of Cosmogony.
No doubt Aristotle, Plato, Newton, LaPlace, Rutherford, and Einstein, and many
others, have given the subject consideration, but the majority of such men have
been specialists in other fields of thought and interested primarily in the
application of natural laws. The ancients as a whole were more conscious of the
spiritual order than the generations of the 19th and 20th centuries, (excepting
the Messianic brotherhood), since the spread of Darwinism, but the problem with
the ancient writings is that they include so much mysticism, mythology and
superstitions widely separated from fact. A truthful Cosmogony must be in
harmony with the Bible and natural features.
From the facts available we can only conclude that from earliest
times there have been Messianic family descendants who would compare with the
wisest men today. Noah’s Deluge and subsequent developments have obliterated
most of their records perhaps, but some were preserved, carried forward as new
vehicles became available, copied and recopied, and the old discarded. The
ancients favored the new; moderns are interested in both old and new. All point
to the ancient Hebrew Cosmogony which is the most detailed of all as it is
briefly outlined in Genesis, obviously an original, Divinely preserved.
We must remember that the earliest Godly families lived in
constant danger from other crude and barbaric types, the contrast between them
being as great as that between a modern American home and the grass hut of an
Australian aborigine or South American Auca Indian. Throughout the whole of
human history, crude primitives have existed contemporarily
groups and where the former were in the majority they had a deleterious effect
progress, culture, and records.
Our research has sponsored many questions and perplexities but also much
unforeseen knowledge including the influence of YHWH/YAHUWAH 's-given gift of ambition
and zeal among the ancients who were YHWH/YAHUWAH -fearing, but less noticeable among the
pagans, many of whom were satisfied to eke out an existence. It may be odd but
it is an amazing fact that the highest community standards of living, learning,
culture, art, honor and reliability belong to the people who were cooperative
with YHWH/YAHUWAH , the author of spiritual and natural law. History has repeated itself
to all generations proving that durable happiness is predicated upon conformity
to Divine principle, which breeds high cultural standards.
And so when all data on Creation is sifted and sorted for
accuracy and reliability we must credit the Hebrew ancestors outlined in the
Bible as possessing the most feasible and
plausible accounts as well as records
which combine the best available in early education,
language forms, and
These men possessed the highest of humanitarian motives,
many of whom sacrificed themselves on the altar of service not for pecuniary,
political, military, or individual profit, but to lift man closer to YHWH/YAHUWAH and His
blessings. They had the best of equipment, encouraged the schooling of their
children, and kept some birth records so accurately that family descent from
Adam to Christ/Mashiach is recorded in the book of Luke. Based on resourcefulness alone,
we are compelled to recognize their accounts as the most reliable source of
information on Creation. They were obviously assisted by Divine Will operating
through spiritually minded men who recorded prophecies, predictions,
computations, scientific details on the character of inorganic and organic
matter, and other matters they could not have understood, but which was included
in an overall Divine Revelation to contemporary as well as future generations.
The Bible with its 66 books, summarized in the book of Isaiah with its 66
chapters written about midway between the origin of the Pentateuch and the book
of Revelation, has not a single original manuscript to verify its authenticity;
and yet when the Dead Sea Scrolls, written over 2000
years ago were unearthed, a copy of Isaiah was found
among them practically identical to our present version.
The supreme tragedy of forty centuries of human effort from Adam
to Jesus/Malki Tzedik Yahusha HaMashiach is pictured in the comparison between the tremendous investment
of the Creator in attempting to elevate men to exalted position and fellowship
with the Divine without contaminating Himself, and the pitiful result in numbers
