“…As we learn about extinct animals like dinosaurs, we realize that Noah must have brought these fascinating creatures on board, too.”

“Every land-dwelling, air-breathing animal in the world today owes its existence to its Ark ancestors”

The Chaldean Account of Genesis

January 27th, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink

The Chaldean Account of Genesis (1872) was written by George Smith, who translated the original tablets. The story makes up part of the Epic of Gilgamesh, and describes the Great Flood a good while before it is believed the Book of Genesis was written. Some of the images are from sculptures in the British Museum.

Canterbury Cathedral – Stained Glass

July 27th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

These photos are from the exhibition “The Ancestors” at Canterbury Cathedral. There are around eight 12th and 13th century windows that have been brought down from the heights (around 70 metres) of the cathedral while the stonework is to be repaired, and are currently down at eye (ish) level in the chapel. You can get right up close to them. It’s open until 25th August and is really a once in a lifetime opportunity. However your life isn’t my life so maybe you’re not bothered.
