Read this astounding, yet brief, PROOF from history. You'll be shocked to find
WHY facts of history have been suppressed -- WHY the Bible has been falsely
DID YOU KNOW that the Abraham of your Bible was a skilled scientist, astronomer,
And that for nearly 4,000 years the world has sought
to hide this astounding fact?
Today vain, would-be scientists ridicule the Bible.
The world in which Abraham lived is made to appear backward and ignorant.
Abraham is labeled, falsely, "a mythological hero"!
But the plain, irrefutable record of history proves
this modern claim just another fable! The world of Abraham's day was
enlightened, had already discovered physical knowledge which it took modern
science nearly 4,000 years to rediscover.
There Were Scientists in Those Days
The American historian Draper, writing of Abraham's
world, now admits: "They had correct views of the structure of the solar
system, and knew the order of emplacement of the planets."
Archeologists have found in recent decades clay
tablets written by the ancient Babylonians. These tablets prove the ancient
world of Abraham "knew the cause of eclipses, and, by the aid of their
cycle called Saros, could predict them" (Draper, "Conflict between
Religion and Science", p. 13).
The most startling proof of the scientific ability of
the ancient Chaldeans -- Abraham came from Ur of the Chaldees -- was revealed
when the world conqueror Alexander the Great captured Babylon. Callisthenes,
the Greek philosopher, "obtained in Babylon a series of Chaldean
astronomical observations ranging back through 1,903 years; these he sent to
Aristotle" (Draper, p. 13; see also Israel Smith Clare, "The
Standard History of the
World", Vol. I, p. 140).
History records one shocking truth after another. The
historian Hutton Webster writes: "One map even represents the world -- a
round world with Babylon near its center" (Hutton
Webster, "History of Civilization Ancient and Medieval", p. 145).
But even more astounding, ancient historians report
that the Abraham of your Bible was the outstanding scholar of his day!
Abraham, Outstanding Astronomer and Mathematician
Now read what the ancient Babylonian historian
Berosus recorded, "In the tenth generation after the Flood, there was
among the Chaldeans a man righteous and great, and skillful in the celestial
science" (Flavius Josephus, "Antiquities of the Jews", Bk. i,
chap. vii, sec. 2). Who was this man? Josephus, the Jewish historian of the
First Century A.D., said Berosus was speaking of Abraham! Josephus also spoke
of the Greek writer Hecataeus who prepared an entire book about the
accomplishments of the Abraham of the Bible.
But this is only the beginning of the proof of
Other historical sources also say Abraham was a
famous scholar in his day. (See Spence's "Myths and Legends, Babylonia
and Assyria", pp. 51-56 and Sir Walter Raleigh's "The History of the
World", Chap. II, Sec. 2, p. 172 and Chap. III, Sec. 4, p. 176.)
Abraham Published Proof of a Creator
The name of Abraham was well known in Ur of the
Chaldees. He was noted for being a skilled astronomer and mathematician. And
for publishing proof there was one Creator God.
According to Josephus, Abraham analyzed the
"phenomena that were visible both at land and sea, as well as those that
happen to the sun and moon, and all the heavenly bodies" as proof there
is one Creator God (Bk. i, chap. vii, sec. 1).
The existence of God, wrote Paul, the apostle, can be
understood by the things that are made (Rom. 1:20). Abraham saw that Creation
was proof of a Creator. He saw that a creation which was subject to law was
proof a Creator had made it so.
Abraham's proof of one Supreme-ruling Creator God
attracted widespread attention. No wonder. The Chaldeans had long been
teaching the masses that the sun, the moon, and the planets were gods.
But Abraham declared, "If the sun, the moon, and
the planets were gods, they would regulate their own motion and not have to
follow laws which had been set in motion by a Creator God" (See Josephus,
Bk. i, chap. vii, sec. 3).
Abraham, the scientist, proved to his generation that
the moon, the sun, and the planets were mere bodies of matter which had to
react according to the physical laws which had been set in motion by the
Creator. But the leaders of that day didn't want the truth of God's laws made
known. That is why Abraham, who dared to publish that "the creation is
proof of a Creator," was driven from his country.
Chaldeans Knew Abraham's Proof of God Was Truth
Abraham was not the only one who recognized that the
heavenly bodies were made of matter which had to obey God's physical laws.
The Chaldeans themselves knew. They publicly taught
the masses to believe the moon, the sun, the stars and the planets were gods.
But, privately, they knew how to predict for centuries in advance just when
the eclipses of the moon would occur. They also knew just how to calculate
where the planets could be found in the sky at any given moment of the future
(Israel Smith Clare, "The Standard History of the World", Vol. I, p.
These Chaldeans well knew that if these heavenly
bodies were gods, as they had deceived the masses into believing, then of
course man could never predict in advance where their positions in the sky
would be. For it was just as obvious to these intelligent men as it ought to
be to you that if the moon, the planets and the sun be gods, they have minds
of their own and can go wherever they want to go at will!
But the educated Chaldeans predicted in advance the
position of the moon and the planets in the sky. They also knew these heavenly
bodies were subject to the physical laws of God. But they hated God's laws --
like most people do today. Therefore they also knew these heavenly bodies were
Your Bible proves they deliberately rejected
Abraham's proof of one Supreme, law-giving Creator God. So also did the later
Greek philosophers. "As they did not like to retain God in their
knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind" -- a mind void of
judgment (Rom. 1:28).
Why Chaldeans Chose to Teach the People Religious Lies
What excuse did the Chaldeans give for rejecting
Abraham's proof of God? The answer has remained hidden for centuries.
When Abraham published the proof of a Creator God --
proof they could not deny, these Chaldean priests had to make a choice:
whether to continue to teach the same old lies, or whether to repent, and
begin to teach the truth about the Creator God. These deceivers decided the
praise and reward of men was better than the praise and reward of God. Human
beings, then as now, didn't want to obey God. They knew that if God set
physical laws in
motion to regulate the physical universe, then He must have set spiritual laws
also in motion regulating man's spiritual relationship with the Creator. THAT
law they DIDN'T want to obey.
Having made the choice to please men rather than God,
these religious hypocrites continued to deceive the masses into believing the
traditions of their ancestors. Today, physical scientists are willing to teach
physical laws -- laws of chemistry, mathematics and physics -- only because
they also teach that these laws just evolved. They refuse to let God the
Lawgiver into their thinking!
Because Abraham dared to teach the people of Chaldea
what the priests called the dangerous doctrine of one Lawgiver, these
hypocrites, wrote Josephus, "raised a tumult" against him.
Why God Called Abraham Out of Chaldea
The priests would have tried to kill Abraham for
publishing the truth had not God intervened.
Now understand why God told Abraham, "Get thee
out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a
land that I will show thee" (Gen. 12:1).
According to Josephus, after Abraham began to publish
his proof, the "Chaldeans ... raised a tumult against him" (Bk. i,
chap. vii, sec. 1). These Chaldeans did not intend to allow Abraham to teach
the people there was one Creator God.
Abraham knew that natural law which regulates the
universe is proof of a Lawgiver. He knew a Lawgiver strong enough to establish
control over the entire universe had to be God.
Unlike the priests of Chaldea -- who chose to teach a
lie in order to receive the praises of men -- Abraham chose to obey that God.
That God appeared to Abraham. "Get thee out of
thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house," He said,
"unto a land that I will show thee" (Gen. 12:1). Abraham left the
land of Chaldea and went to the land of Canaan (Gen. 12:5). He;
did as God commanded.
We read in the only truly reliable history book, the
Bible, that after Abraham had moved to the land of Canaan, a famine occurred
which forced him to move his flocks to Egypt until the famine was over (Gen.
While in Egypt, Abraham left another record in
history. According to Josephus, Abraham taught the Egyptians "arithmetic,
and delivered to them the science of astronomy." For as Josephus records,
before Abraham came into Egypt, the Egyptians were unacquainted with
arithmetic and astronomy (Bk. i, chap. vii, sec. 2).
Why did the Egyptians have Abraham teach the science
of arithmetic and astronomy? The answer is simple. They had heard about how
great a scientist, astronomer, and mathematician Abraham was. As soon as he
arrived, Egyptians asked him to teach them about arithmetic and astronomy,
which he did.
After the famine in Canaan was over, Abraham went
back to the land God had given him. That knowledge, meantime, prepared Egypt
for world rule and made Egypt the one land in which the nation Israel could
grow to maturity -- as it did 400 years after
Obedience Pays Off
After Abraham obeyed God's command to come out of
Chaldea, your Bible reveals God made him "very rich in cattle, in silver,
and in gold" (Gen. 13:2), and in flocks and herds, in
menservants, and maidservants, and camels and asses (Gen. 24:35).
God not only made faithful, obedient Abraham
fabulously wealthy. Because Abraham was obedient and faithful above all men of
his day, God also promised Abraham that his descendants would become a great
nation and a company of nations (Gen. 35:9-12).

"The United States and the British Commonwealth in Prophecy," and
read for yourself documented proof the United States and the British
Commonwealth are the world's wealthiest peoples because God promised Abraham
that He would not only reward him personally, but He would even give great
wealth to his children and to their children's children to many generations.
Are You, Like Abraham, a True Scientist?
Are you, like Abraham, seeking the approval of God,
rather than the praises of men?
Are you, like Abraham, honest enough to acknowledge
that the creation is proof of a Creator? You can have the proof in the free
booklet, "Does God Exist?"
Then after having acknowledged that God is God, will
you, like Abraham, let The Almighty God lead you into a true knowledge of why
the universe was created? It's made plain in the free booklet, "Why Were
God can say of you -- if you let Him -- as He said of
Abraham, "And he believed in the LORD; and he (God) counted it to him for
righteousness" (Gen 15:6).
