BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (PRWEB) September 04, 2015
In his highly informative expose, “If the Bible is as Much Fable as Fact, Did God Create Man or Did Man Create God?” (published by AuthorHouse), author Peter Seiler marshals his education in both science and history in his exploration of the Bible’s claims of faith, shedding the light of scientific findings and historical analysis on the biblical texts. He presents the results of a personal search for the truth about the relations between God and humanity, summarizing the factual grounding for its conclusions.
In this book, Seiler attempts to evaluate the motives of the early biblical writers in light of the historical period and social conditions in which the events portrayed – occurred. It leans heavily on Sumerian, Babylonian and Egyptian oral and cuneiform tablet myths circulating in the middle-east millennia earlier and how these ancient myths were transposed into the later Jewish Torah and even later in the Christian Old Testament. He recognizes that man had created numerous gods over the ages to explain mystifying natural phenomena, but he leaves it up to the contemporary reader to decide whether monotheism is also a human creation due to still unresolved scientific vs. supernatural questions.
Spanning 10 parts, the text begins with an extended introduction to the author and his method before conducting a four-part examination of the history of faith from the ancient past through the Enlightenment. Then the author examines, in three parts, the case for the involvement of alien life in human history. Finally, he turns to the future before summarizing his conclusions.
Through this book, Seiler hopes that readers would entertain a new social and religious paradigm which incorporates their acceptance that there are numerous others, and far more technologically and perhaps religiously, advanced species in, on, under, or visiting Earth – and be ready for that revelation.
