-5- Direct observation, i.e. the OLB is based on fact.
Biblical chronology and, by implication, the Friesche Volksalmanak which is based thereon is unlikely. Why would they have used an inferred or calculated Biblical date (i.e. the Bible was their prime, and only source) and not have used the Biblical description of the flood. The OLB and Biblical descriptions of the flood are completely different from one another.
I didn't leave out anything.
I said, " -2- Astronomy (an actual/probable impact of a comet - Edmund Halley/William Whiston/Alewyn)"
And did you even read what I posted about Edmund Halley's theory?
His theory is almost a carbon-copy of yours, but 350 years older.
AND I linked to a site from someone who calculated the date of Noah's Flood to be at 2194.4 BCE (and it's the average of the 2 dates he came up with).
Either he read the OLB and wanted to arrive at a date to confirm the OLB... OR... he never even heard of the OLB, and just did his thing. And I think it's the last option: nowhere on his site I see any mention of the OLB.
You always say you do not have time enough to read this thread.
Great. Well, I have all the time in the world, and I do my best to come up with what I found out.
What you should do is link to the page of this thread, the page you last visited before you had to leave again for a week.
Then you enter that link into your browser, and read from there on.
I explained to Knul, and now I explain to you.
You have many times accused me of having some sort of 'agenda'.
Now I accuse you of having some sort of agenda: you claim to be too busy to read this thread every day, but then you finally show up with a post that shows us you didn't bother to read what has been posted during your absence.
Feels great, eh?
You only post to make people believe you didn't write some book about an erroneous theory (a theory which happens to be ANCIENT and not anywhere near original >> Halley antedated you with his theory for about 350 years... because he sought an explanation for marine fossils showing up on mountains. And THAT'S the guy whom the writers of the OLB got their inspiration from).
But I write about what I found out, I have no 'agenda' and I do not need to sell my book.
