did now not clarify the explanations of the historical occasions similar within the Bible. It additionally
contained a few unavoidable blunders which were corrected during this book..
The item in writing "Ancient Prehistoric knowledge" is to provide an explanation for of what

The writings often called sacred books include descriptions of the astro-
nomical legislation of the heaven and the usual legislation of this earth. those writings
have in prior a long time been thought of sacred, and are referred to as holy through the races
who have preserved them. The contents of those books originated in prehis-
toric time, centuries earlier than grammatical written language used to be invented. In
transcribing and translating those writings from the primitive documents, a
personal interpretation of the legislations was once hired. The language used and
the approach to describing the legislations is recorded in a unusual demeanour and is
misleading.

The historical writers recorded the formation of races, time, house, and the
astronomical legislations because the phrases of a God spoken to guy, that have led stu-
dents of those writings to deduce that there existed a private God who spoke
the phrases written in those books. it's the legislations and the misinterpretation of
the writings that are defined during this publication, and that's what in B.C. time,
was known as historical knowledge.
