Getting the Narrative Right



Alice C. Linsley

There are many problems with this article, titled: "DNA Discovery of Ancient Mummies Supports Biblical Narrative of Descendants of Ham, Son of Noah."

1. The lines of Ham and Shem intermarried. This has been demonstrated by analysis of the marriage and ascendancy pattern of the rulers listed in Genesis 4 and 5. The lines of Cain and Seth intermarried, as did the lines of Ham and Shem.


The same pattern is found with Amram, the father of Moses, Aaron and Korah.

See the diagrams in this article on the Genesis King Lists to better understand the marriage and ascendancy pattern of the Mighty Men of Old.



2. All these peoples are in the same DNA (Y-chromosome) group - Haplogroup R1. The R Haplogroup is extremely archaic, older than the time of Noah. Here you will see the territories into which the R1b peoples dispersed. Note that the dark red spot in central Africa is the Lake Chad region, Noah's homeland. It is called Bor-Nu, meaning Land of Noah. Noah was a Proto-Saharan ruler.

3. The R1b peoples dispersed into southern Europe and the Indus River Valley and some went into Brittany and the British Isles. About 60% of British men are in Haplogroup R1b. The 6-prong star, called the "merkaba" in Hebrew, is found in all the territories in which they settled. It symbolizes the rising of the Sun, the emblem of the Creator among the R1b peoples. The image is seen on the ossuaries of Hebrew priests and their family members and on some carvings from the oppida (a "high place") of the Castro culture in Galicia, Spain (shown above on top right). Many other artifacts common to the R1b peoples have also been found from the Upper Nile to the Tarum Valley of China.



The 2,000-year-old ossuary shown above belonged to a daughter of the Caiaphas family of high priests. It is marked with the 6 pointed star and has an Aramaic inscription that says, “Miriam Daughter of Yeshua Son of Caiaphas, Priests of Ma’aziah from Beth Imri.” The inscription dates to the time of the Second Temple.

The same image is found on this ossuary of Joseph Caiaphas, the high priest (shown below).



The merkaba as chariot spokes within a circle appears to be an Iron Age version of Ra's solar boat. The Creator was believed to mount the sun as a chariot and ride the winds, making His circuit. This speaks about God's sovereignty over all the Earth.

The rulers listed in Genesis 4, 5, 10 and 11 were the builders of the great Sun cities of the ancient world. The priests who served in these temples were Ha'biru or Hebrew. Some were devotees of Horus. These are the Horite Hebrew and some of their rulers are listed in Genesis 36.

Alice have you ever read the book by don richardson "eternity in their hearts"?
If not, you will see how there are a lot of information which relates you work and
Margaret Barker.
The ritual of mbaka people is basically the ritual of the church.

Pag 67.
He basically says that the elders initiate young people by blood sacrifice, than baptize the people and finally the initiated must behave like a child for a week.
Check in the link above, pag 67

I see your point. There are some significant differences.

The Baptismal rite of the Church has a Trinitarian formula. The person is baptized into the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They may not partake of the sacrifice of the Eucharist until after baptism. The Eucharist is a "bloodless sacrifice" because the work of Jesus Messiah on the cross cannot be repeated. However, the benefits of His death, resurrection, and ascension are offered to all and are eternal.

A more compelling connection to the indigenous religious practices of Africa is the veneration of the Sun. Some call this sun worship, but this misrepresents the practice. The Sara (Kameeni) are an example. These clans have Nilo-Saharan origins.
