The Beast of the Earth Was/Is
Not An Animal - Part 13
If space permitted further
quotations, it would be shown by the highest authorities of the age that
the pure-blooded White alone possesses the qualities of mind which are
essential in the creature whom God designed to develop the resources of
the earth and have dominion over fish, fowl, cattle, creeping thing and
beast. It is significant that these exalted characteristics find their
opposites in the Negro.
In "The Aryan Race," Morris
says: "It may be remarkable that all the savage tribes of the earth belong
to the Negro or the Mongolian Races. No Negro Civilization has ever appeared.
No Mongolian one has ever greatly developed. On the other hand, the White
is pre-eminently the man of civilization. No traveler or historian records
a savage tribe of White stock."
Blood, The Liquid Of Life - by
C.E. Allan Turner
Blood is a matter of life
or death. Its kind determines the nature of the life, whether animal or
human. Its quality decides health; its type, parentage. Its absence through
loss, or destruction, or unavailability of suitable transfusion, spells
death. Absorption of poisons, injection of air or unacceptable material
similarly terminates life. A stoppage of the flow will destroy the brain
within fifteen minutes, even though circulation may be restarted. Conversely,
the transfusion of blood into a patient will visibly renew his vitality.
In 1799, President George
Washington died almost certainly as the result of bleeding by his medical
advisors. He was probably the most prominent of the many who perished through
several centuries in which mistaken practitioners deprived their patients
of the very means of life. So demonstrably true is the Scripture verse,
"The life of the flesh is in the blood..." (Leviticus 17:11, 14)
This liquid provides the
transport system of the body, propelled by the heart, itself dependent
on blood; regulated by nerves, salts, and chemical secretions provided
by organs that are themselves maintained by it.
Absorbing simple oxygen and
air, together with very many complex chemicals from food, in health blood
carries them to the numerous organs, depositing them in the right places,
with accurate timing and in the correct proportions. At the same time it
removes all waste substances and itself is being continually and frequently
changed. Thus it maintains the complexity and high quality of life -- in
the case of man, for his threescore years and ten or more.
It is essentially the main
agent in the body for the maintenance of equilibrium of temperature, fluids,
acidity-alkalinity, food, salts, and general nutrition. Yet such a liquid
is regarded by the evolutionist as the result of chance -- without cause,
yet producing complex orderly effects. This vital fluid, with a specific
gravity of 1.055 represents about nine percent of the total weight of a
man, and amounts to some five liters or nine pints.
Apparently consisting simply
of forty-five percent by volume of moist solids or cells and fifty-five
percent plasma, a yellow liquid, both parts contain dozens of complex and
vital compounds. The plasma or serum consists of about ninety percent water,
nine percent protein material, 0.9 percent salts, and 0.09 percent sugar,
urea, and so forth. These salts are chiefly the basic ions: sodium, potassium,
calcium, magnesium, and the carbonate, chloride, phosphate, and sulphate
The concentration of these
salts is allowed little variation in health. The kidneys receive a blood
inflow of about seventeen hundred quarts daily, but remove only about .10
percent as urine. It is in this that most of the waste products of protein
metabolism are secreted -- such as urea and uric acid, some dyes and other
foreign materials, and excess salts. Other wastes and excess, except that
lost through defecation, are removed in perspiration, which contains a
large amount of salt. This simple compound, sodium chloride, is a necessity,
not only for gastric juice, but also in the blood to prevent cramps in
If it falls too low the kidneys
cease to excrete it. Other chlorides are significant. Excess of ammonium
chloride causes acidosis of the blood and produces convulsions. Too much
potassium chloride stops the heart. Calcium chloride is needed to help
plug wounds by assisting clotting.
The bicarbonate ions, at
210 mg per 100 ml, help in the removal of carbon dioxide from the tissues
and keep the blood just alkaline at the pH value of 7.4. If this alkalinity
is lost, increased and violent breathing results, and at 7.0 death is likely.
Conversely, if the blood reaches an alkalinity of 7.6 it might prove fatal.
The recent research of Winston
H. Price, Harvey V. Harrison, and Shirley H. Ferebee, reported to the New
York Academy of Sciences, suggest that such widely different disorders
as cancer, coronary thrombosis, pulmonary tuberculosis, rheumatic heart
diseases, and schizophrenia all produce detectable changes in certain blood
substances. These are serum mucoids, which are compounds of proteins and
Seven of these provide, in
healthy persons, a pattern which is disturbed by disease. Such facts hardly
allow the development of variation in the composition of serum from the
supposed original stock of the evolution of new species. The highly imaginative
evolutionists have suggested that life evolved from the sea, as its concentration
of sodium chloride and other salts is like that of blood and other body
fluids. However, blood has less than one percent of this salt, whereas
sea water has a 2.7 percent on average, and 0.8 percent other salts, of
which some are not in blood nor would be acceptable to it.
The evolutionists would find
that the Baltic Sea, with its somewhat fresher water, is still too salty;
but somewhere, at a yet-to-be- discovered location, a river with suitable
concentrations might be found as the site of the start of life! Of other
substances in blood, marked changes from the 10 mg of calcium, 2 mg of
uric acid, 30 mg of urea, or 100 mg of glucose per 100 ml are of diagnostic
For example, excess of glucose,
detected also through urine, is characteristic of diabetes. Nerves and
muscles cease to function properly if calcium is below 8 mg. The plasma
contains three essential proteins: fibrogen, which helps coagulation; serum
albumin; and serum globin or globulin. These are not for food, but are
part of the structure of the blood. Hemophiliacs (bleeders) lack fibrogen.
Albumin and globulin, as they are large molecules, exert an osmotic pressure
of 30 mm of mercury, which draws water back into the capillary blood vessels.
This prevents the accumulation of water in the tissues in the condition
called edema. The blood either makes or receives certain substances called
antibodies, which are globulins. These are of many kinds and they provide
defenses against foreign particles, including bacteria.
Should the evolutionist regard
these facts of size, content, and effect as the result of chance? The merciful
provision of the wise creator rather is the true view. There are other
proteins than those mentioned above that are found dissolved in the plasma,
including hormones and enzymes. These latter remarkable, complex substances
are in transit: enzymes to catalyze metabolism, and the hormones to stimulate
development and secretions, like the working of the "brains" of a factory.
For the purpose of nourishing
or replenishing the tissues, there are also present in the blood amino
acids, which are like "building blocks." These come from proteins that
are absorbed chiefly in flesh foodstuffs and consist of chains of these
acids. The evolutionist will find no comfort from the fact that human blood
contains three or four of these acids different from the gorilla and only
one in common with fish. Truly Scripture states: "All flesh is not the
same flesh, but there is one flesh of man, another flesh of beasts, another
of fishes and another of birds." (1 Corinthians 15:39)
In different races the proportion
of individuals belonging to a particular blood group varies widely:
% Blood Group

Table 5.3, p. 161)
The forty-five percent of
the blood which consists of cells provides yet more striking evidence of
the wonderful nature of the substances in blood. These cells consist of
three main types: red cells or erythrocytes, whites or leucocytes, and
platelets or thrombocyte. Each kind is produced in bone marrow, although
in the fetus its liver is the main site for producing red cells, and white
cells are formed in its spleen. All these cells jostle one another through
the arteries, the veins, and some fifty thousand miles of capillaries which
can be fifty times thinner than a human hair.
In 1658 J. Swammerdam in
Holland discovered the red cells, and in 1661 M. Malphighi in Italy saw
this capillary circulation. William Harvey in England discovered the general
circulation of the blood in 1628. The white cells were found by J. Lieutaud
in France in 1749.
The various kinds of cells
have their own particular structure, functions, contents, and size. The
platelets are the smallest being about 2.5 microns in diameter (the micron,
a unit of microscopic measurement, is one millionth of a meter or 0.001
mm). These cells number about half a million per cubic millimeter.
They are colorless. On touching
anything but the endothelium lining of the blood vessels, they disintegrate,
liberating (among other substances) thrombokinase, which assists in producing
from the blood protein fibrogen, the fibrin essential for clotting or plugging
loopholes. A rash occurs in pupura when the number of platelets is below
The white cells are comparatively
few at five thousand to ten thousand per cmm, or one to every five hundred
or one thousand red, and are of three main types. These are the granulocytes
(60-70%; themselves divided into three classes), the lymphocytes (25-30%),
and the monocytes (5-10%). They are all indefinite in shape and are of
sizes varying with their kind, being between eight and twenty-two microns.
Their main, but by no means exclusive function is phagocytic as they deal
with foreign bodies, bacteria, and waste material, ingesting and dissolving
them. In this process many of these cells become damaged and die, thus
The Beast of the Earth Was/Is
Not An Animal - Part 14
The lymphocytes also apparently
produce the antibodies which neutralize the effect of poisonous material.
When a person suffers from the serious disease leukemia, there is a population
explosion in the blood by the uncontrolled formation of the white cells.
All leucocytes have the power of free movement, and lead independent lives
for up to fourteen days before being removed and replaced by new cells.
They are thus separate lives within a life, and give blood the character
of a living fluid.
Once again man has proven
the Scriptures to be true. Once again man has proven that God exists because
in ancient times He related in the Scriptures that there was life in the
blood! "For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it
to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the
blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. For it is the life of all
flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the
children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the
life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut
off." (Leviticus 17:11, 14) "Only be sure that thou eat not the blood:
for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh."
The red cells are the most
numerous, numbering about five million in women and five and one- half
million in men per cmm, totaling about 25x109 in the whole body, or ten
times more than the platelets, and one thousand times more numerous than
the leucocytes. A red cell can travel from the heart to the brain and back
in eight seconds, and to and from the toes in eighteen seconds.
These cells are specially
designed to carry oxygen from the lungs around the body to the tissues.
This is effected by the remarkable chemical hemoglobin. The blood of males
contains about 12-17 grams of the substance, and that of females 11-15
grams per 100 ml. This compound apparently consists of four molecules of
haem linked with the protein globin, which itself contains three hundred
amino acids in two chains. The haem molecule is one atom of iron combined
in its ferrous state with seventy-four other atoms, being nearly nine percent
of its weight or four percent of the whole molecule of hemoglobin.
This latter substance accounts
for most of the thirty-eight percent solid matter in the red cells. But
the iron in the total hemoglobin of a man is sufficient to make only a
single two-inch nail! It was the German chemist J. von Liebig who, in 1852,
discovered the combination of iron and oxygen in the blood. The hemoglobin
molecule is very large, having a molecular weight of 68,000, whereas that
of glucose is only 180. Hemoglobin functions by forming a loose compound
with oxygen, the ferrous iron being oxidized to the ferric state to make
the molecule bright scarlet. When it is reduced in the tissues by giving
up the oxygen, it turns dark purple. At the same time one-third of the
carbon dioxide passes into the red cells and two-thirds into solution in
The difference in color between
the arterial and venous blood is a valuable indicator in medical practice.
The darker venous blood is returned to the lungs where it releases the
carbon dioxide into the air, and the hemoglobin is recharged with oxygen.
One hundred ml of oxygenated blood containing 14 grams of hemoglobin will
hold 18.5 ml of oxygen, whereas a similar volume of water would dissolve
only 0.38 ml. These facts are a merciful economy in the amount of blood
the body would otherwise have to carry. If the poisonous gas carbon monoxide
enters the lungs, this function of hemoglobin is destroyed.
This is due to the fact that
hemoglobin has 250 times more affinity for it than for oxygen, and also
does not release it in any part of the body. Survival is then dependent
on replacement of the poisoned cells by newly made ones, or the body dies
of oxygen starvation by its otherwise life-giving fluid.
Anemias are diseases in which
the red cells are deficient in number or in hemoglobin content. These erythrocytes
are like envelopes containing hemoglobin. Their life is much longer than
that of the other types of cells, being about 120 days, after which they
are worn out.
This means that about 2.5
million are made and destroyed per second, or one percent of blood is replaced
daily in the body. After about three hundred thousand exchanges of oxygen
and carbon dioxide the hemoglobin is destroyed in the spleen, forming amino
acids. In economic fashion, the iron returns to bone marrow and the liver
for further use. The red cells are of uniform shape compared with the other
kinds of cells, being elastic, biconcave discs 7.5 microns in diameter
and 2.2 microns thick. In certain anemias the shape is distorted.
Mathematical analysis, confirmed
by the applied science department of the International Business Machines
Corporation computer, showed that the normal shape is the best for giving
the largest surface to the smallest volume for the function of supplying
oxygen rapidly to the tissues.
The area thus provided for
this purpose in the aver person amounts to about 3,500 square yards. Was
such a perfect plan for cells the result of chance or the work of the Wise
Designer? The Creator of all things.
A comparison of the size
and number of red cells alone in various creatures shows wide differences,
which do not help the theory of common ancestry. Whereas man has about
five million red cells per cmm, the goat has nine to ten million; but its
near relation the sheep has thirteen to fourteen million.
Birds have one to four million.
Fish, supposed to be less evolved, have from 0.25 up to as many as two
million, and the more developed (according to the evolutionist) frog has
only 0.5 million.
The average diameter of man's
red corpuscles at 7.5 microns is nearly the same as that of his good friend
the dog at 7.3. The supposedly related carnivore, the cat, has cells of
6.5 microns. The herbivorous rabbit's measure 6.9, but the goat's only
4.1 and the musk deer's 2.0. It is obviously difficult to relate these
sizes to activity, habitat, food, bodily size, or supposed evolutionary
Also of interest here is
the fact that frogs and pigeons, as examples of amphibians and birds, have
larger oval, red corpuscles measuring 22.3 by 15.7 and 14.7 by 6.5 microns,
respectively. Many other differences between the blood of man and that
of animals show the folly of following evolutionary theory.
For instance, the granulocytes
of different mammals have dissimilar appearance. Also the crystalline forms
of hemoglobin derived from the blood of various animals differ greatly.
Even those of supposedly closely related creatures are markedly unalike.
Further, while dogs and cats have a low red cell concentration of potassium
and a high sodium content, in the rat and the rabbit these relative concentrations
As early as 1904, H.F. Nuttall
published the results of thousands of blood precipitation tests in his
book Blood Immunity and Blood Relationship. These were used as evidence
in 1925 by H.H. Newman of the University of Chicago in the famous Scopes
trial, which concerned the teaching of evolution in Tennessee. N. Thompson
in Outlines of Zoology, as late as 1944, quoted them in support of the
Douglas Dewar in his valuable
book The Transformist Illusion, 1957, pointed out the numerous absurdities
in these figures. (Douglas Dewar, The Transformist Illusion. Evolution
Protest Movement Pamphlet No. 74, 1957) Examples of these are that ungulates
(hoofed animals) appeared closely related to whales, and some whales are
nearer relations of man than are monkeys. The crane is apparently a close
relative of the green finch, but far removed from the hedge sparrow.
Some humans showed they are
more closely related to apes than to their fellow men, and as nearly related
to carnivores, rodents, and ungulates! Nevertheless, Newman stated, "The
results so far attained are so definite and clean-cut that there is every
reason to expect a great future for this type of evolutionary evidence."
However, the situation today
is no clearer, and this type of appeal has been largely dropped. It is
an interesting example of false evidence being used to bolster up a failing
theory, and of a blind faith that blood, which holds the key to life, must
also prove evolution.
In 1649 the Englishman, Francis
Potter discussed blood transfusion. He was followed by Richard Lower, F.R.S.
who became M.A. of Oxford during the Commonwealth. Lower successfully performed
a transfusion of blood from one dog to another in Robert Boyle's presence
at Oxford in 1665, and repeated the experiment before the Royal Society
in London in 1669.
The Beast of the Earth Was/Is
Not An Animal - Part 15
On 15 June 1667 Jean Baptiste
Denys made history in Paris by transfusing blood from one man to another.
Lower safely repeated this on 23 November of that same year in England.
Such experiments subsequently caused fatalities, probably through lack
of knowledge of differences in blood-producing coagulation.
Hence they were stopped by
law in most countries. The English obstetrician James Blundell early in
the nineteenth century revived interest in the process by saving the lives
of a number of anemic patients by transfusion of human blood.
The Austrian Karl Landsteiner
in 1898 made the vital discovery which led to safer transfusion. He found
blood could be classified into four main groups, according to the presence
in the serum or red cells of certain substances, causing agglutination
or clumping together of the cells. Group A contains one of these two main
materials; group B the other, group AB has both, but the fourth group O
Hence group O may be given
by transfusion as the "universal donor" to any group. AB may receive the
blood of any group, but A and B are restricted to that of their own respective
group. There are also a number of other factors, including some mentioned
below which have to be considered; and before actual transfusion, cross-matching
of the donor's and the recipient's bloods to assure no agglutination must
be done, or death may occur.
Inheritance of the group
follows Mendelian laws. A, mating with A or O, produces only A, B with
B or O gives only B. A crossed with B gives the AB group, and O produces
only O. Here again is no evidence for evolution, as another group has NEVER
PRODUCED BY A DIFFERENT PURE PAIR. Groups also persist in being distinct;
NO NEW ONES ARE FORMED!
There are racial variations
in the distribution of the groups. HUMAN BLOOD IS NOT ALL THE SAME. The
translation of Acts 17:26 in the King James version, unlike some revisions,
inserts "blood," although the word haima does not appear in the Greek text,
which is thus in accord with modern physiology!
The tables below show the
percentage frequencies of occurrence of the various groups in different
races. The second list is from the report of J. Moor-Jankowsky, Alexander
S. Weiner, and Charles M. Rodgers in "Human Blood Group Factors in Non-Human
Primates," published in Nature, vol. 16, no. 5, p. 54.
The figures in Table II gives
little comfort to the evolutionist seeking identity between apes and men,
for none are comparable with those of Table I, even allowing for wide variations
in the figures. Gibbons, which have some percentages similar to those of
man, are obviously very different as they are without the O group. A number
of others also have no O group, which is abundant in man.
The Cebus and squirrel monkeys
include some with the O group, but none with A or AB. The gorillas, often
regarded as near man, are one hundred percent B.

Evan Shute in his book Flaws
in the Theory of Evolution points out the vast differences found by Rabin
in the distribution of blood groups between the long isolated Ona and Yahgan
tribes who live adjacent to one another in Tierra del Fuego. The figures
as percentages are:
The Distribution of Blood Groups Between the Long
Isolated Ona and Yahgan Tribes
On the other hand, many peoples
who are racially extremely unalike have yielded almost identical distribution
figures. Examples of these pairs are Australian Aborigines and Eskimos,
Negrito Pygmies and Russians, south Africans and Melanesians! An increasing
number of factors that can cause agglutination are being found in blood,
so the number of groups is not confined to the four mentioned above.
Thus there are the Lewis,
Kell, and Duffy factors, named after the families in which they were first
found. Also there are the M and N types of blood, and the P positive and
the P negative identified by Landsteiner and Levine in 1927. The total
is in excess of fourteen, which give rise to over one hundred types of
blood. Combinations of factors will produce numerous types, since 210=1024,
214=16,384, and 220=1,048,576. Thus there is great individuality in blood,
which shows how remarkable the substance is and how valueless for evidence
of evolution. So A.E. Hooton, himself an evolutionist, in Apes, Men, and
Morons states, "The reconstructions of primitive races and prehistoric
migrations that are based on serology are even more speculative and implausible
than those that result from the study of skulls and bones."
Among the other factors found
in blood is the Rhesus discovered by K. Landsteiner and A.S. Weiner in
the United States in 1940. This factor divides blood into that type containing
it and thus termed Rhesus Positive (or Rh+) and that type without it, termed
Rhesus Negative (or Rh-). A mixture of these bloods in transfusion or in
childbirth can cause death.
About this time someone will
always say, well the Blacks and the Whites bleed red blood, which is a
stupid statement designed to strengthen their argument. And it is true,
insofar as it goes, the Blacks bleed red blood, and Whites bleed red blood;
but then so do horses, cows, jackasses, some fish and almost all other
animals in existence. Does this mean that they all came from Mother Eve?
Of course not, that is a statement so patently ridiculous that it should
not have to be said.
After the fall of man all
creation suffered disorganization and disarrangement. The Bible recounts
the life of Adam and Eve as the progenitors of the human race upon the
earth after their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. The length of their
lives was thereafter limited by Divine decree and the history and chronology
of mankind began.
In the eighth chapter of
the Book of Romans, however, the Apostle Paul envisions the renewal of
the earth and the glorious hope of resurrection life to come, and he wrote:
"We know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together
until now," (Romans 8:22) yearning toward the restoration which will become
a reality according to the Divine promise.
How long the beast creation
enjoyed an orderly culture of its own before the majority of its kind degenerated
into voodooistic cultism need not be discussed here. We are now only concerned
with the fact that when God created man in His own image, the beasts of
the earth were to serve him as his helpers.
A New Creation
Professor Charles Carroll
poses questions in his book which have intrigued the minds of men from
generation to generation. When, and by whom, was matter created? Reason
gives no answer, but at this point of impasse revelation comes to our assistance
with the sublime assertion: "In the beginning God created the heaven and
the earth" (Genesis 1:1) This, revelation, in harmony with true science
and with reason, emphatically confirms the teachings of each: that there
is a God; a personal God; a Creator, quite apart from His creation. Therefore,
the Book of Genesis opens with the all-inclusive statement that this universe
had a beginning; that it was created; that God was its Creator. The Mosaic
Record teaches that there are just three creations.
The first of these is described
in connection with the heaven and the earth in the very remote beginning.
The second describes the introduction of plant and animal life upon the
restored earth after it had experienced a catastrophic cataclysm. The third
details how man came into being -- a new and completely distinctive creation.
That the elements of life,
both plant and animal, were part of the original creation, and existed
in matter, is shown by the identical language used by God in commanding
the earth and the waters to bring forth plant and animal life, as follows:
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed,
and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself,
upon the earth: and it was so." (Genesis 1:11); "And God said, Let the
waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life." (Genesis
1:20); "And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after
his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his
kind: and it was so." (Genesis 1:24) What was so? In obedience to the Divine
command, the elements in the earth and water combined to react to the Creator's
instructions and brought forth plant and animal life "after his kind."
The Beast of the Earth Was/Is
Not An Animal - Part 16
Consciousness And Mind
Consciousness, which made
its first appearance in the material universe, was an element distinct
from matter. It was not present in light, nor in the heavens, nor in the
plants, nor in the luminaries. Consciousness is the knowledge of sensations,
or of what passes through the mind. Mind is an element also distinct from
matter and consciousness is never found apart from mind. Hence, this new
element, as present in the physical structure of the lower order of animal,
the fish, was mind in its simplest form.
Following the introduction
of the fish, God handled this combination of matter and mind on up through
the different grades of matter and mind on up through the different grades
of animals until the creation of man. The evidence of this is found in
the fact that, although the higher order of fowls and beasts possess more
highly developed physical and mental structures than the fish, the difference
between them is merely one of degree. Animals possess the power to reason
in varying degrees. The more the habits of some animals are studied by
a naturalist, the more he attributes their actions to reasoning and less
to unlearned instincts.
After Our Likeness
In the more detailed description
of the creation of man, given in the second chapter of Genesis, we are
told: "The Lord God Formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed
into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." (Genesis
2:7) Thus, the physical and mental organism of man, like the lower animals,
was simply a combination of matter and mind. The supreme distinction between
the animal creation and man lies in these Biblical statements: "And God
said, Let us make man [Adam] in our image, after our likeness...So God
created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male
and female created he them." (Genesis 1:26-27)
Prior to the creation of
Adam, there was no connecting link, no tie of kinship between the Creator
and His creation. But the bestowal of God's image and likeness upon the
one to whom He entrusted dominion over the works of His hands made spiritual
conception possible, giving man the ability to commune with God. Animals
think and even reason, but to man was given the natural inclination not
only to think and reason, but to imagine, to spiritually perceive and envision.
It is no wonder that David exclaimed: "Thou hast made him a little lower
than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour." (Psalm 8:5)
Having been created in the image and likeness of God, both Adam and Eve
and their posterity were to be endued with the power to become the sons
and daughters of God. (2 Corinthians 6:17-18)
The Lord God planted a garden
eastward in Eden and Adam was placed there to dress it and keep it. What
the interval of time was that intervened between the creation of man and
the creation of woman we have no means of ascertaining. Of His creation
up to a point, it is recorded that "God saw that it was good." But after
this it is stated: "And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man
should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him." (Genesis 2:18)
Following this all the creatures who had come into being by the act of
the Creator were brought to Adam to be named: "Whatsoever Adam called every
living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all
cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but
for Adam there was not found an help meet for him." (Genesis 2:19-20)
Adam was still not entirely
complete in his being. As we read the Biblical record of God's performances
in creating woman as an helpmeet for Adam [his alter ego], we are led to
conclude that each Divine act was a step in a process of unfoldment of
His whole intention: "And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon
Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh
instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made
he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone
of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because
she was taken out of Man." (Genesis 2:21-23)
Adam and Eve were perfectly
mated and they became one. Their affinity for each other was to be a spiritual
intimacy of the highest order, a sublime partnership, a companionship in
which they would share thoughts, ideas, joys, responsibilities and achievements.
When Moses wrote the Pentateuch, he recorded their relationship as "man
and wife:" "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother,
and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." (Genesis
Moses looked back, of course,
from his position many generations later, after the fall of man, who was
created in the image of God. Now we will deal with the part of the "beast
of the field" played in the temptation of Eve.
In the Garden of Eden, the
mode of living of Adam the husbandman was comparable to a high standard
of civilization, marked by abundance and tranquillity. In contrast, the
beasts of the field followed the chase in the Land of Nod, the literal
meaning of which is a place of "wandering." This was the original abode
of the progenitors of the purebred Negroes.
Dressing The Garden
Adam was lord of a vast estate
and there is every reason to believe he engaged the services of the beasts
of the field to do the necessary manual labor in the Garden of Eden. He
would have selected, from among the inhabitants of Nod, the most competent
of these beasts to serve him. This fact would account for the presence
in the Garden of one of their kind who conversed with Eve. We notice that
Eve expressed no surprise when confronted with a beast of the field, according
to the account given in the third chapter of Genesis.
Furthermore, it is obvious
that she had talked with him on previous occasions, for their conversation
together indicates this. Very likely this particular beast of the field
acted as an overseer, supervising the work of the rest of the laborers
working in the Garden. In this capacity he would be in a position to speak
to Eve, the wife of Adam.
The Subtle Intruder
The third chapter of Genesis
opens with this statement: "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast
of the field which the Lord God had made." (Genesis 3:1) Here a beast of
the field is introduced who is described as "more subtil" than any other
of his kind. The Biblical word "subtil" has many variations of meaning,
all of which define the character of this beast.
The Ferrar Fenton rendering
states he was "more impudent;" that is, he was lacking in modesty; he was
contemptuous and cocky. He was also artful and cunning; that is, capable
of using his intelligence as a stratagem for deceptive purposes, to gain
The Hebrew word translated
"serpent" is nachash who, among his kind, was the most gifted. It is universally
admitted by commentators that the word nachash presents a great difficulty
when it is translated as "the serpent."
Notice how quickly this difficulty
is resolved, however, if, instead of translating nachash as "the serpent,"
we leave nachash in the English text as a proper name. Then it would read:
"Now Nachash was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord
God had made." (Genesis 3:1) After all, we know that the Hebrew word for
man is Adam and therefore we have given the first man the name of Adam.
Because the Hebrew word designating the beast of the field who confronted
Eve in the Garden of Eden is nachash, then it may be logically concluded
that Nachash was his name.
What's In A Name?
The catch phrase, "What's
In a Name?," is borrowed from its poetic origin to be used in a variety
of contexts. Nevertheless, the answer to the question is that there is
a great deal in a name.
Many of the names used in
the Bible have meanings revealing traits of the personality of that particular
individual or associated with events during the time that the individual
lived. For instance, Jacob's name means "supplanter" and he did supplant
his brother Esau when he stole the blessing.
Afterward when Jacob became
converted, his name was changed to Israel, which means "ruling with God,"
and he became the progenitor of the people who later were organized into
the Kingdom of God at Mount Sinai.
Peleg was named to commemorate
a great physical disaster that occurred in his lifetime when, as the result
of a cataclysmic earthquake, the earth was "divided." This took place when
the continent of Atlantis disappeared. Peleg means: "division of land by
The Beast of the Earth Was/Is
Not An Animal - Part 17
As we have already pointed
out, Adam, the Hebrew name of the first man, designated him as ruddy, light
complexioned, with blood making his face blush - a White human being. The
name Nachash, on the other hand, designated a specific beast of the field
and disclosed the traits of character that motivated him in his actions.
More than a hundred years
ago, Dr. Adam Clarke labored at length to solve the conundrum of the third
chapter of Genesis, which he said in his Commentary was "one of the most
difficult, as well as most importance, narratives in the whole book of
God." He contended: "We are obliged to seek for some other word to designate
the nachash in the text than the word 'serpent,' which, on every
view of the subject, appears to me inefficient and inapplicable."
Dr. Clarke went on to say
that "in all this uncertainty it is natural for a serious inquirer after
truth to look everywhere for information." The Lord rewarded Dr. Clarke's
efforts with as much of the truth as it was the Divine purpose to have
revealed in that generation. The following findings in his Commentary are
of special value: "In such an inquiry the Arabic may be expected to afford
some help, from its great similarity to the Hebrew. A root in this language,
very nearly similar to that in the text, seems to cast considerable light
on the subject. Chanas, or khanasa, signifies 'he departed, drew off, lay
hid, seduced, slunk away.' From this root come akhnas, khanasa and khanoos,
which all signify an ape, or satyrus, or any creature of the simi or ape
We have here a genuine clue
in full support of the deduction that Nachash, a highly intelligent beast
of the field, was a purebred Negro. However, the knowledge concerning the
origin of the Negro was still lost in Dr. Clarke's generation and he was
not in possession, therefore, of sufficient information to assist him to
arrive at the whole truth.
His research, although indispensable
takes us only part of the way. If the translators who gave us the Bible
in the English language had know the whole truth also, they would not have
tried to solve the Scriptural enigma that faced them by inserting the word
"serpent" in the text where it would have been more logical to use the
Hebrew word Nachash. However, the translators were well aware of the Satanic
implications involved in what brought about the fall of man in Eden. Dr.
Clarke found further: "It is very remarkable also that from the same root
[i.e., in the Arabic language] comes khanas, the Devil...Is it not strange
that devil and ape should have the same root, so very similar to the word
in the text?"
According to Young's Concordance,
nachash means "to prognosticate; to enchant by magic spell." Thus
this beast was properly named Nachash in view of the meaning of that name
and because of what he was able to accomplish in deceiving our first parents.
Again, Dr. Clarke puts it well: "Satan made use of this creature as the
most proper instrument for the accomplishment of his murderous purposes
against the life and soul of man. Under this creature he lay hid, and by
this creature he seduced our first parents, and drew off and slunk away
from every eye but the eye of God."
Dr. Clarke combats the idea
that the tempter of Eve was of the serpent species when he maintains that
"none of them ever did or ever can walk erect." Nor has one of them ever
been able to speak, for they are totally without vocal cords. They can
hiss, but they could not, nor can they now talk - so much for evolution.
The very name "serpent" comes from serpo, which means "to crawl."
For that class of reptiles,
"it would be neither curse nor punishment to go on their bellies...They
have no organs for speech, or any kind of articulate sound; they can only
In his summarization of the
results of his research, Dr. Clarke listed many salient points to consider:
"In this account we find:
1). That whatever
this nachash was, he stood at the head of all inferior animals for wisdom
Can you imagine for one moment that
if a real "serpent" or "ape" had suddenly come upon Eve with the ability
to walk and talk, she would have stayed there and had a conversation with
it. Not on your life, she would have run screaming for Adam to protect
her from them.
2). That he walked erect,
for this is necessarily implied in his punishment - 'on thy belly [i.e.,
on all fours] shalt thou go.'
3). That he was endued with
the gift of speech.
4). That he was also endued
with the gift of reason, thus he was able to ask Eve "hath God said?"
5). That these things were
common to this creature, the woman no doubt having often seen him walk
erect, talk and reason, and therefore she testifies to no kind of surprise
when he accosts her in the language related in the text..."
According to the first verse
of the third chapter of Genesis, Nachash posed a challenging question to
Eve: "Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?"
It is obvious that there was much more than this to the discussion between
Nachash and Eve. Moreover, it is an undoubted fact that there is a mingling
of that which is literal and that which is symbolical in what is recorded.
The Bible is cryptically brief, and purposely so, in its delineation of
all that occurred that day in the Garden.
It is a remarkable fact of
Scriptural unfoldment that the meaning is often concealed rather than revealed
by the translator's choice of English words, as well as by the arrangement
of Scriptural passages, until the set time arrives when the whole truth
is to be made plain. This is demonstrated again and again in the prophetic
portions of the Bible, just as it is so at this very instant in time.
Eve reiterated what Nachash
already knew, that she and Adam had been invited to partake of the trees
in the Garden with one exception, the tree of knowledge of good and evil
[That this was not a literal tree is beyond doubt, because there are no
known trees that imparts knowledge, just from eating its fruit!]. The actual
Divine command to Adam and Eve was: "But of the tree of knowledge of good
and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof
thou shalt surely die [Margin: dying thou shalt die]."
Here many will exclaim that
the Bible says: "And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and
thirty years: and he died." (Genesis 5:5)
And many will claim that
Adam certainly lived more than one day after he ate of the forbidden fruit.
However, they do not take into consideration that the Scriptures also say:
"But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with
the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." (2 Peter
Therefore Adam did live less
than one day, after he ate the forbidden fruit, in the eyes of God! Nachash
was well informed about this commandment, but he said to the woman: "Ye
shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof,
then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and
evil." (Genesis 3:4-5)
It is not advisable to read
into the account what is not recorded there, but it is important to reflect
upon the fact that among the sinister meanings of the Hebrew word nachash
there is this signification: "to acquire knowledge by experience."
However, this is a soul-destroying
idea if the thoughts conceived in the mind are evil. Nachash was intelligent
enough to know that the consequences would be disastrous if Eve could be
induced to disobey the Divine injunction. Therefore, he suggested: "Why
don't you touch?" "Why don't you experience?" On her part, Eve was intrigued
with the idea of becoming wise and she succumbed to the persuasion of Nachash.
The Beast of the Earth Was/Is
Not An Animal - Part 18 (Last One)
The Biblical statement is:
"When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant
to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the
fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and
he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they
were naked..." (Genesis 3:6-7)
The dormant physical nature
of both Adam and Eve were awakened when they deliberately partook of forbidden
knowledge, "the eyes of both of them were opened and they knew." They were
mentally aroused to know not only good, but evil, and for them at that
juncture, this was knowledge taken out of due time.
They were without spiritual
fortification against the pernicious outcome of the possession of carnal
knowledge because their action together was in flagrant disobedience to
the emphatic command of God. The consequences to the entire human creation
were incomprehensible to Adam and Eve, but later estimations of the tragedy
in the Garden of Eden in the day that Adam and Eve sinned recognize the
incalculable harm done.
From the moment that Adam
and Eve fell, all mankind came under a curse and Baruch speaks of "Adam's
transgressions," defining its scope: "For owing to his transgression, untimely
death came into being, and grief was named and anguish was prepared, and
pain was created, and trouble perfected, and boasting began to be established,
and Sheol demanded that it should be renewed in blood, and the begetting
of children was brought about, and the passion of parents produced, and
the greatness of humanity was humiliated, and goodness languished." (The
Apocalypse of Baruch 56:6)
Satan had made a willing
tool of Nachash in his diabolical scheme to corrupt mankind. That Nachash
was morally accountable for allowing himself to be used is made very clear
by the judgment pronounced upon him. The judgment of Nachash is named first,
for he was the one responsible for tempting Eve: "And the Lord God said
unto the serpent [i.e., Nachash], Because thou hast done this, thou art
cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly
shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life." (Genesis
Thereafter, he was no longer
able to walk upright. The curse was directed against this one creature,
and against him alone, for he was to be "cursed above every beast of the
field." He was reduced from an upright posture to a condition lower than
that of cattle or any other beast of the field, going upon all fours and
compelled to eat his food in the dust of the earth.
The judgment upon Eve followed
and was indicative of the place in which women would find themselves in
the generations of the human race to follow: "Unto the woman he said, I
will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt
bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall
rule over thee." (Genesis 3:16)
If the original sin was not
sexual intercourse with Nachash and Eve, and Adam with a female beast,
1). would God give
women pain in childbirth?
Following this Adam was sentenced
by God to an entirely different way of life than he enjoyed in the Garden
of Eden: "And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice
of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying,
thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow
shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles
shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the
ground; for out of it was thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust
shalt thou return." (Genesis 3:17-19)
2). would God greatly multiply
the sorrow when the woman experienced conception?
3). would God cause her sorrow
when she brings forth children?
4). would God make the woman's
desire to thy husband, if it was not to reduce the chances for her being
seduced by another?
To prove that having sex
is the same as eating we present the following Scripture: "Such is the
way of an adulterous woman; She eatheth, and wipeth her mouth." (Proverbs
Moffatt renders this passage:
"This is the way of an adulteress: she gratifies her appetite [sexual desires]
and calmly says, 'No harm!'"
The New International Version
renders this passage: "This is the way of an adulteress: She eats and wipes
her mouth and says, 'I've done nothing wrong.'"
Where there is a wrong, there
is a remedy. Something can be done about it. If we quit passing the buck
and saying 'THEY' should do something about it, and start saying I must
do something about it, then we CAN, with the help of Almighty God and the
Lord Jesus Christ do something about it!
Filling A Need
This, then, is the purpose
of the foregoing comparison between the bodily structures of the White
and the Negro. It is not to degrade the one and elevate the other. Not
at all. It is to show that the gulf of dissimilarities is far too wide
and too deep to give credence to the idea that the black may be considered
equal to the white, or that they may integrate, and eventually amalgamate.
Which would eventually lead to the annihilation of both races; the ultimate
desire of the mixers. Who in that way hope to dominate all humankind for
all time to come. And it is to prove that both races do not have the same
This, then, is the Negro's
raison d'etre; that is, his justification for existence. When we turn to
the Bible for knowledge and instruction, we are informed that the "beasts
of the earth and field" were created among the lower "kinds of flesh" to
fill their place in the Divine plan where they would be most needed. They
were given erect posture, well-developed hands and feet, articulate speech;
withal, tool- making and tool-handling bipeds (two-footed beasts) - possessing
the essential characteristics to fit them for their position as servants.
Each division in God's creation
is designed for a specific purpose and reaches its highest fulfillment
when it brings itself into full compliance with the Divine will.
The White Race Was/Is To Be God's
The White Race was and eventually
is to be - A servant race to Almighty God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 41:8: But thou, Israel,
art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
Isaiah 44:1-2: Yet now hear,
O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: Thus saith the Lord
that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear
not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.
Jeremiah 30:10: Therefore
fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; neither be dismayed,
O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land
of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be
quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
Jeremiah 46:27-28: But fear
not thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel: for, behold,
I will save thee from afar off, and thy seed from the land of their captivity;
and Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at ease, and none shall
make him afraid. Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the Lord: for
I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I
have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee
in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.
Ezekiel 28:25: Thus saith
the Lord God; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people
among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight
of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to
my servant Jacob.
Thus, in dealing with the
question of races, which is of paramount importance today, the above proves:
