Amazon Prime’s ‘The Bible Conspiracies’: Noah’s Ark Possibly Proven By Ruins Found In Iraq
Amazon Prime has a new series out called ‘The Bible Conspiracies’. The documentary claims that proof of Noah’s Ark has potentially been found in Iraq. The Bible story has long been sought to be proven. It details a great flood that engulfs the planet and the world’s last faithful man to God, Noah, who loads his family and two of every animal onto the huge boat for the watery judgment of mankind.
Almost every other culture on Earth has a version of this story concerning a flood that almost wipes out humanity. The Bible in Genesis also goes on to detail how in the aftermath of the deluge, the Tower of Babel was constructed. This story seeks to explain how diverse human languages were brought into existence. Most Christians interpret many stories in the Bible as more metaphorical than literal, so conjecture goes on and on over this.
The story relates that Babylonians claimed the tower could reach the heavens and that God chose to stop the endeavor by confusing the languages of the workers so they could no longer communicate. It is a parable concerning the vanity of man. The tower was never completed and humans were thereafter spread across the face of the planet. Amazon’s documentary now claims that a discovery in the Babylon Province of Iraq matches the tale.
Remains found in the Middle Eastern country match the description of the famous tower according to archaeologists on site. They have discovered a series of cylinders surrounded by burnt bricks, the Daily Star reports. Doesn’t sound like definitive proof to me.
“The investigation goes on to explain how the Bible says the structure would later be destroyed by angels under God’s orders.
“Many believe the tower was destroyed by God, but the text actually tells us it was a strange race, referred to as the Anunnaki.
“These Anunnaki were described as coming from the heavens, sent to guide humans.
“In times gone by they were called angels, but today we might call them aliens.”
Amazon Prime’s ‘The Bible Conspiracies’ has been given 2.5 stars and is free to watch for members of the paid-for subscription service. To me, this sounds like one more leftist attempt to discredit the word of God.
This same documentary also claims that the true son of God was not Jesus, but a Greek philosopher. Mull that one over for a bit.
The 67-minute documentary states: “Hidden in the Bible are ancient secrets.
“The marriage of Jesus and Mary and their children; the destruction of the tower of Babel by an alien race called the Anunnaki, and the hidden code that holds the revelation about future events.”
I am a Christian and find all of this very hard to swallow. One of their claims is that Jesus has been confused with a Greek philosopher who lived at the same time. That’s heresy to most Christians. They are alleging that stories shared in the Bible about Jesus’ life, and the miracles he performed in the New Testament, may have been mistaken for Preacher Apollonius of Tyan.
The documentary goes on to say that Apollonius became famous, building a religious following as he preached and performed miracles. I have never heard of him and I sure as heck do not believe he is the son of God. He sounds more like a false prophet than anything else to me.
“There is, in fact, a man who can be found in text outside of the Bible after the church failed to eradicate him from history.
“His name is Apollonius and he was born in the 3rd or 4th year BC in Tyana in Cappadocia, Anatolia.
“He became a disciple of Pythagoras renouncing flesh, wine, and women.
“He wore no shoes and let his hair and beard grow long.
“He reportedly restored life to the dead and spoke of things beyond the human reach.
“And, unlike Jesus, there is evidence to prove that Apollonius actually existed.”
More than half of all the customers to review the show gave it one star, the lowest possible rating. It’s not hard to see why. Right there with them on this one. I find the discovery of Noah’s Ark in Turkey far more credible than this tripe and I am not renouncing the Savior for some Greek philosopher.
