The story is the legend of the great king Gilgamesh, and the eventual tragedy of his friendship with Enkidu—lord of the wild. It was written by a Sumerian, but was absorbed into later... More > Babylonian, Akkadian, and other ancient cultures. Because of Gilgamesh’s arrogance and pride, the gods created Enkidu—a warrior as powerful as the king—in order to teach the king humility. The warriors became friends and had many adventures together. But the evil goddess Ishtar punished Enkidu (and eventually Gilgamesh) with an untimely death sentence, and Gilgamesh undertook a long journey in search of Utnoa (Utnapishtim) the Faraway—survivor of the Great Flood. Utnoa alone had knowledge of the secret fruit of immortality, which lay under many waters. At the story’s end, the fruit benefits neither the king nor his friend, but ironically, Gilgamesh—through this timeless story—has indeed become immortal.< Less

This book proposes a harmony between Genesis 1-11 and modern mainline science. It argues that a basic distinction must be drawn between the actual words in the Bible and our attempts to interpret... More > those words. Dr. Isham maintains that the apparent contradictions between science and the Scriptures have been caused by blurring this distinction. The popular, traditional interpretation of Genesis 1-11 is at odds with modern science, a fact that has led liberal Christians to treat these chapters as ancient Israelite mythology. However, Dr. Isham argues that the literal words of the text can be harmonized with modern science, provided that a new interpretive model is found. In this book, Dr. Isham attempts to provide such a model for the Biblical stories of Creation, Eden, Cain and Abel, Noah’s Flood, and the Tower of Babel. The connective genealogical materials are also harmonized with the Sumerian King List to produce a new chronology of Biblical events.< Less

Historians consider the biblical account of Noah and the Deluge as a myth. However, this famous event occurred at the earliest times of recorded history (Sumerian King List). Today scientists believe... More > in the last ice age called Pleistocene ending in 10,000 BCE, but there is no witness of this planetary cataclysmic event and its existence is based solely on the controversial interpretation of its consequences and their dating. The existence of erratic blocks and the disappearance of mammoths are presented as evidence of the last glaciation. However, despite dating obtained by 14C (calibrated by dendrochronology) is considered absolute by most experts its confrontation with the Egyptian chronology, in which some dates are fixed by astronomy, reverses this widespread belief and shows that dates obtained by 14C increase exponentially before -2200. Thus the rate of 14C tends gradually to 0 around -3500, which implies an important consequence: before -3500, 14C dating is no longer possible.< Less
