“The Titans” and the Weird Parts of Scripture

This post is the fourth in a series. It is about “Myths” and the weird parts of scripture. This one is still talking about Noah and the Flood Myths, but it is going to deal with something that you probably didn’t know was a part of the story of Noah. At the end of the last post, I said that we’d talk about “Giants,” and we will, but I’ve discovered that this issue is SO BIG, that we need to break it down into two parts. Therefore, this issues is about the “Sons of God” in Genesis.

This issue is about the “sons of God” in Genesis.

“Flood Myths” and the Weird Parts of Scripture

Noah’s Flood just might be the craziest thing we read about in the Old Testament. As I intend to show in this post and the next, it’s not as crazy as you think. Instead, it’s far, FAR crazier than you think. It’s crazy because truth is stranger than fiction, and lots of “fiction” you’ve heard just might be the truth.

“The Myth of Phaethon,” and the Weird Parts of Scripture

In the previous post, we explored how a 2,600 year old story on the “myth of Atlantis” has some peculiar similarities to the submarine geography that was discovered only in 1957. Here, we explore how the “myth of Phaethon,” as described by that same 2,600 year old Egyptian priest seems to have some peculiar similarities with some very widely accepted ideas about comet impacts and gigantic floods.

The Date of the Second Persian Invasion of Greece is Wrong

The generally accepted year of the Second Persian Invasion of Greece — 480 BC — is WRONG. The correct date is 478 BC, because contrary to all of the non-astronomically minded historians who don’t check the sources, the Eclipse of Xerxes DID HAPPEN.

“The Myth of Atlantis” and the Weird Parts of Scripture

This is a series about the weird parts of scripture. These are the stories that you learn in Sunday School, but then never revisit because they are too weird. Nobody believes that stuff. Creation. Adam and Eve. Talking Snakes. Heavenly beings having sex with women and producing Giants. Ages of primordial man which leads back…

Why You Believe in Spirits (Whether You Know It Or Not)

We tend to think the statement “I believe in spirits” is something that someone would say if they are from the African bush, if they are absolutely crazy, if they also sell crystals, read palms, and know their way around tarot cards, or if they are absolutely crazy. I’m here to tell you that YOU, reader, probably do believe in “spirits” whether you know it or not.

The Adoration of the Magi and the Waters Above the Firmament

This fifth and final post on the “Waters above the Firmament” shows how these “Waters” are actually related to the Magi in Matthew 2, and Isaiah 43, which prophesies about the Magi. I am CONFIDENT that you have never heard this before, and boy are you in for a treat when you read it.

Crossing the Jordan and the Waters Above the Firmament

This post is the third in a series about the Waters Above the Firmament. This post describes how this cosmic geography of these “waters” (mayim) and “the deep” (tehom) is shown again, specifically as it relates to the crossing of the Jordan.

Parting the Red Sea and the Waters Above the Firmament

This post is the third in a series about the Waters Above the Firmament, first mentioned on the second day of creation, which SEEM to exit the entire narrative of the Bible (but which in reality do not). This post is about the next time the word “the deep” (tehom) is used in scripture. The place is in the Exodus out of Egypt.

New Life and the Waters Above the Firmament

The purpose of this post is to show how rich the Bible’s metaphorical or symbolic ( or literal?) use of the words “the deep” (tehom) and “the heavens” (shamayim) actually are. By understanding this conceptual framework, you can understand some very deep and complex things that the Bible communicates.

The Flood of Noah and the Waters Above the Firmament

The second day of creation is… …strange, even for those who believe that God created the world out of nothing. That’s what this post is about. We’re going to explore the “Waters above the Firmament.”
