Thank-you. What you say is logical and I will assume that it was the scribes failure to properly interpret his evidence is the reason we today see extremely long rules for the Sumerian kings. I would like to exclude the ante-diluvian kings for the time being since that opens up a whole other set of ...

Very interesting. Now if only you could apply your myth-busting expertise to:
1. Kennedy Assassination
2. Roswell Coverup

4. 9/11 Pentagon Missle

With your indulgence I would like to go deeper in order to enhance my understanding and also for any casual readers who may be interested. Firstly, I am a little confused about the numbering system.

It is possible that a hunting party could venture out, and for some reason find it impossible to return. But unless women went along, it's unlikely such a 'forced' colony could exist for long. Still, it explains how some peoples may have intermingled. I agree it must have been accidental in the sens...

I think it was progressive, not all at once. I think our ancestors ventured out a little bit more at a time, and "reported back" (continents, islands, currents, wildlife, etc...). As to the choice of lifestyles, if populations grew to large enough numbers, some may have ventured inland. :? I'm not ...

Allow me to quickly introduce myself. I am a Christian who believes in the God some believe is 'fictional' and I believe that one day the Bible and science will be in agreement. I believe the Bible is not flawed, but our interpretation of what it says probably is flawed. (I exclude doctrinal issues ...
