Re: Noah's my ggggggggggreat grandfather!


Very interesting, MA. I have always held that a fair bit of the Bible is verifiable history...one just has to be able to understand that sometimes people were describing events way beyond their level of knowledge. The seven plagues are a great example of this...there is a school of thought which says that the eruption of Thera occurred about the time of the Biblical Exodus. I prefer to think that the plagues were probably caused by this eruption--the Creator's way of coming down on Pharaoh hard enough for him to get a clue and let the Hebrews go. Certainly within possibility and certainly within the ability of an omnipotent God I should think.

I get that the site you mention does leave the matter of whether Creation took seven literal days (24 hrs.) or seven periods of undetermined length) to be completed as an ongoing mystery.

As I say I can accept geological time and things such as evolution as being consistent with faith because I believe it unwise and maybe even arrogant to limit the Creator.

As Professor Lindenbrook said in "Journey To The Centre of The Earth", when Alec says a prayer to "God of Heaven and Earth": "Don't limit him that way Laddie. His Realms are bigger than just that"

Re: Noah's my ggggggggggreat grandfather!


Yesterday morning, GenForum.com notified me that I got a bite for my long ago...quite long ago Armenian ancestry inquiry re: The Arch Duke Martian Sefilian. His name was, Agop, and he was born around 1896 from Sivas(?).

Cool!? Huh!?

So you see, Robert & Will...when you post inquiries there at GenForum.com or Rootsweb.com, patience of waiting for a bite does pan out.

And there are sections in both sites that do accept Native American inquiries. You only just need to look for them.
