WHY HUMAN BEINGS DO NOT NEED BLIND FAITH TO BELIEVE IN CREATIONISM
By Professor Solomon Huriash
Chapter 1: Creation Story of Genesis
By using the etymological derivate meaning for translations for the key Hebrew words that end each period of creation with “And there was evening, and there was morning, a ---day,” we proved that those verses should be translated ‘ and we went from a point of not being able to identify the entities being created in their formative stages, to the time when they became recognizable, and now we are ready to ascend to the next higher step of the creative process’.
The universe was formed 4.55 billion years ago and a time period is able to be assigned to every period of that creative process.
Each verse is analyzed and explained from a Biblical perspective and then its relationship to science is also detailed.
Chapter 2: The Parable of Eden
The Garden of Eden story is analyzed and the lesson of the parable is explained.
For those who insist that the story is a depiction of events that literally took place, they have to make a choice between accepting God rested on the 7th day (Period) and He was
merely commenting on the entities He created or if He was hard at work recreating everything He completed in Genesis 1. None of us could have it both ways.
The case is made that women are the equal of men and not responsible for the problems of the world.
The story of Eden is the first analysis in the history of man of the mindset of people and thus Eden could be said to be the mother of all parables.
Where was the Garden of Eden located as per the way Jesus and the Jews of that generation were taught?
Chapter 3: Challenges
Discusses the assaults on the Bible’s integrity when some academics charge Moses is guilty of plagiarism because Egyptian religious practices including animal sacrifices, the Garden of Eden story, Noah and the Ark, Abraham and human sacrifice, Code of Hammurabi, etc., concepts are already known stories to the Semitic tribes and now they are being presented in the Hebrew Bible with a different version.
In this chapter we study the explanation of Maimonides, the greatest of the Hebrew scholars since Moses, who clarifies and resolves all challenges.
Chapter 4: Noah and the Ark
With a more detailed translation of key Hebrew words we find that only a specific section of the world was destroyed and not the entire world. Those findings are further proved by science.
Chapter 5: Israel- Whose Land Is It?
The history of the land prior to the arrival of the Jews is discussed and then continued with the constant invasion by foreign armies.
The Bible’s position is discussed.
Chapter 6: Why Would Muslims Who Believe In The Koran Want To Take Israel From
Surah 17:104 of the Koran (the Bible of the Muslims) states that the Israelites are to have the ‘Promised Land’ and they are to live there ‘securely’ (without fear or harassment).
We also discuss the case made by Muslim scholars and accepted by the highest authorities including Muslim nations unfriendly to Israel, that the Al-Aqsa Mosque was intended for Medina in Saudi Arabia and not Jerusalem.
Details of the Journey of the Hijra
Chapter 7: A Different Approach To Understanding Biblical Enigmas
Among the detailed analysis and discussions of this section of the book are explanations for understanding the logic of how drinking the contents of the smashed Golden Calf of Exodus 32, contamination of the innocent by the Red Heifer of Numbers 19, and by looking at a facsimile of a snake in numbers 21, the Fiery Serpents, could be made to serve a purpose.
Chapter 8: Of Rocks and Water
Numbers 20:1-13 receives explanation that during Creation water was trapped in stones. Yet two miracles occurred. What were they?
Chapter 9: The prohibition of wool and linen being present in the same garment is explained.
Why is it okay for Sephardic Jews to eat corn at Passover and not for Ashkenazi Jews?
