who have preserved them. The contents of those books originated in prehis-

transcribing and translating those writings from the primitive documents, a
personal interpretation of the legislation used to be hired. The language used and
the approach to describing the legislation is recorded in a unusual demeanour and is
misleading.

The old writers recorded the formation of races, time, area, and the
astronomical legislation 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 ebook, and that's what in B.C. time,
was referred to as historical knowledge.
