The second book I released yesterday is "Genesis: Why We Are Here" Here is an excerpt:

Here is a big question for the reader to ponder: “What separates humans from the monkeys?” Hint: It is not our opposable thumbs or the ability to use tools, because both species have that.

The difference, first of all, is that we have developed the ability to read and write, and to pass down information to our offspring. The earliest writing was discovered in the Garden of Eden, also called the Fertile Crescent and/or Mesopotamia, and dates to about 6 thousand years before Christ. It says, when translated into English, “fermented red grapes + hops + barley.” That is the recipe for beer, folks, as it used to be made before the discovery of brewer’s yeast. Moreover, archeologists tell us that the early beer was created by and made by the women of Eden – or Eve, as Genesis tells us. (Eve had to have eaten the forbidden fruit first, and liked it, before brewing beer with it).

The discovery of beer led to a bunch of rapid changes. First, until that time period (the late stone-age) most of the hominins on Earth were naked (except in colder climates where they typically wore animal pelts over their naked bodies in order to stay warm in the harsh winters). But the women of Eden / Mesopotamia were probably the first hominins to sew plants together (either fig leaves or possibly fax leaves as archeologists indicate) to make actual form-fitting clothing, as Genesis 3:7 informs us. While some anthropologists may try to say it was to decorate their bodies, or else because it was cold, the Bible says it came about because consuming the forbidden fruit caused Adam and Eve to become aware that they were naked. The needle Eve used, archeologists tell us, was made from animal bone, and the thread was likely made from catgut at first and before long from the same hemp plant that Eve got the hops from.

Secondly, the red grapes were plentiful in the Garden of Eden, and possibly the hops, but the barley had to be cultivated. Barley is also a good food source, and it led to the first sustained farming.

By 5500 BC, the innovative hominins in Eden invented irrigation; and that led to several additional crops being planted such as wheat and chickpeas.

By 4500 BC, the plow was invented, and oxen were domesticated to pull it, allowing more crops to be cultivated, and in sufficient quantity to feed a large population.

It was not long before the first large city (or the first civilization, or the first modern man), sprang up around farming and the brewing of beer – around 4000 BC – and exactly when (and where) Genesis says it happened. The first cities were Eridu, Ur, and Urak. Ur is believed to have had a population of 30,000.

About the same time, the world’s first king appeared. He lived in Eridu according to ancient writings.

Not long afterwards, in 3760 BC, the world’s first calendar was introduced in Nippur (often called the Nippur calendar). There may have been earlier attempts at devising a calendar, but it is the first calendar reliable enough to have remained in continuous use ever since its invention. It is year one of the ancient Babylonian calendar, and it is year one of the Hebrew calendar still in use today.

Also on Day One (the 4th millennium BC), horses were domesticated, and shortly afterwards the wheel was invented (circa 3500 BC). Archeologists think it was first used as a potter’s wheel, and was soon adapted to haul crops to the market, and also for horse-drawn chariots. The earliest wheeled cart was discovered in Ur which is where Abram (i.e., Abraham) was born (see Gen 11:27).

By the end of Day One, all of the cities in Mesopotamia, in order to trade with each other, developed a common language – sometimes called the Indo-European language which may have been mostly spoken at first, but was soon developed into a written language. It is basically a mixture of the Sumerian language (one syllable words) and the Semitic language (advanced multi-syllable words), the two languages originally spoken in the Garden of Eden. The newly developed common language also allowed the Mesopotamians to intermarry for the first time, which greatly helped in unifying their culture.

Despite Eve’s beer being why we are here, there will no doubt be many who will say that because fermented red grapes are very likely the forbidden fruit that typically grew on trees in Mesopotamia (before the invention of trellises), they must be bad for you. Moreover, that is a pretty valid point because drinking too many red beers can definitely kill you just as God says.

In addition, red beer (say most Bible historians) is very likely the “strong drink” that many verses in the Old Testament warn us about. So, yes, if consuming strong drinks leads you to break any of the ten commandments, then you should indeed seriously consider abstaining (and especially so if it causes you to wreck your car and severely injure or kill someone).

Consequently, in many religions of today (including Islam and many Christian sects) fermented grapes are still “the forbidden fruit.”

On the other hand, it can well be argued that not only consuming too many beers, but consuming too much of anything is bad for you. Moreover, it can truly be said that brewing beer from fermented red grapes have given us all kinds of knowledge, including knowledge of good and evil.

Moreover, beer that is made the way Eve brewed it – made with red grapes that contain a natural yeast known as Pterostilbene – is actually very good for you health-wise and leads to longer life (when drank in moderation). That beneficial aspect of fermented red grapes is strongly hinted at in the Genesis saga (in Gen 2:9). Today’s “brewer’s yeast” also has a few medicinal benefits, but it contains considerably more calories which can lead to “beer bellies” which are not good for you, both appearance-wise and health-wise.

IMHO, because beer is the reason we are here, it is high time to get mad at MADD (all puns intended), and legalize stopping for two beers after a long day’s work, which dates from Adam and Eve. Consuming two pints (two 16 oz. “tall boys”) should not be against the law, yet it is now is in my home state (Texas) and 34 other US states. And virtually all studies (except for the MADD one) say that consuming two beers does not make you too impaired to drive. The horrible wrecks in which whole families die are typically caused by someone who consumed 4 times the legal limit. In addition, it can just as well be argued that the vast majority of accidents are caused by completely sober drivers. We should also remember that the first miracle Jesus performed was turning water into wine at a wedding feast, when everyone was “well drunk.” But of course, depending on how much you weigh, drinking more than two tall boys within an hour can make you too impaired to drive well, and react quickly enough to avoid accidents, so everyone should indeed drink “responsibly.”

If anyone wants to try beer made from fermented red grapes much like it was brewed in the Garden of Eden, it can still be found, but only (as far as I know) in Spain and Portugal, and in Ireland, France, Belgium and Japan, and now it is also being brewed at several micro-breweries in the USA. Being the latest craze, new micro-breweries are continuously popping up and are near impossible to keep up with, but here are the red beer breweries in the US that I currently know about, listed by state:

Delaware (Dogfish Head Brewery, in Milton) Maine: Allagash Brewery (in Portland) New York: Captain Lawrence Brewery (in Elmsford) Texas: Jester King Brewery (in Austin), and Texas Beer Refinery (in Dickinson)

To summarize this commentary on Day One, the discovery of beer (and not our opposable thumbs or the ability to use tools, etc.) is the reason we are here; and therefore (IMHO) we need to slow down and reflect on things, and put off trying to legalize questionable things like the non-medical use of Marijuana (too much of which can also impair your ability to drive), and first legalize enjoying a couple beers after work, which dates from the time of Adam and Eve.

Why we are here

After reading the article, I assume we're here to make beer -- "The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems".

You guys are a hoot. If it were not for Eve discovering beer, we would still be monkeys.

But the whole point is, archeologists agree that civilized (modern) man appeared exactly when and where the Bible says he did, in 4000 BC in Eden / Mesopotamia.

That is the only purpose of my books, to show that the Bible and science / history / archeology agree virtually 100 %.

In the case of Genesis however its possible / likely that snakes lost their legs prior to 4000 BC and that part is mostly symbolic because alcoholic beverages (if you drink enough of them) can sneak up on you like a snake and cause you to sin (including wrecking your car and killing someone).

I'll sleep easier at night knowing that.

No offense, but this forum is not for selling books. You may want to try eBay or Amazon.

The last time I checked, Bible Study is one of many catagories on LF. Plus LF stresses that you can say anything you want on their site.

And my books are for sale on amazon (and on BN.com many other venues). Haven't tried eBay though.

I see. You think you found a loophole.
