Can we logically combine recent research on human origins with ancient legends of floods, paradise lost, and cloud clad gods destroying civilizations? Yes, says author Alan Daniel, who has thoughtfully joined key primordial legends with mitochondrial DNA research, archeological and anthropological finds, and geological evidence in Tracking Ancient Legends. DNA evidence shows a small band of humans crossed out of Africa into Eurasia about 100,000 BC; however, why is lost to the primordial mists. But the why may be answered by primeval legends overlooked until now. The author theorizes that prehistoric legends may explain the flight from Africa. The model set forth is fascinating, as well as epic in scope. Competing theories are examined, including the ancient astronaut concepts, and the foundations of theory itself. Are aliens from other worlds the source of our legends, or is something much more earthly and surprising the groundwork of our legendary past?

ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 242 In this 242nd ÿissue of the Baba Indaba?s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Sumerian/Babylonian story of ?The Giant of the Flood? The foundations of ancient Chaldea, were laid as long ago as 5000 B.C. and were as early as those of ancient Egypt. In fact they were the sister colonies with a common cultural heritage. The earliest civilized inhabitants were Sumerians and the land was full of city-states. As with all great cultures they had many myths and legends. One of their legends is about THE GIANT OF THE FLOOD, and the story goes thus?. Just before the world was drowned all the animals gathered in front of the Ark and Father Noah carefully inspected them. Then he said to them "All you that enter and lie down shall be saved from the deluge that is about to destroy the world." Then the various creatures began to march forward into the Ark. Father Noah watched them closely. He seemed troubled and wondered where if the unicorn would make it. Og, a giant, not like by Noah offered to find it for him. But Noah turned down Og?s offer of assistance, considering Og to be one of the giants which were descended from Heaven?s fallen angels. Then the rain started to fall when the time came the unicorn had not appeared and Noah was forced to shut the door of the ark. Og went and sat atop a mountain to wait out the deluge. Did Og and the unicorn make it through the great flood? Well you?ll have to download the story to find out just what happened.

A new vision of our ongoing creation that sees the roots of the Bible extending far back in time & space from Palestine to Egypt, India, & geological eras; that acknowledges the use of legends & ancestral prototypes from many cultures in the Bible. This book takes one on a grand historical tour, starting from the very beginning of humankind, spanning millenia, peoples, & civilizations, showing how current spirituality stems from the providential interplay of widespread ideas, thus yielding a common heritage of gems from many cultures. This overview leads to the exploration of a wide range of possibilities of our theological beginnings. The migrations of peoples & the consequent exchange of ideas from many lands challenge the reader to consider some startling new theories on the significance of Bible stories. The underlying theme is the action of a providential God, gradually inspiriting all peoples of the earth, with ALL humans as THE PEOPLE OF GOD in a common process of creation. With a greater understanding of the rich sources of Bible stories, we can better appreciate the wisdom they convey. Order from Kim Pathways, 16 Young Road, Katonah, NY 10536, phone (914) 232-1524.
