The item in writing "Ancient Prehistoric knowledge" is to give an explanation for of what
the legislations of the heaven is composed, in addition to to offer the cause of the reasons
and results of the occasions recorded within the Bible because the legislations of creation..

The writings often called sacred books comprise descriptions of the astro-
nomical legislations of the heaven and the normal legislation of this earth. those writings
have in earlier a long time been thought of sacred, and are referred to as holy through the races
who have preserved them. The contents of those books originated in prehis-
toric time, centuries prior to grammatical written language used to be invented. In
transcribing and translating those writings from the primitive documents, a
personal interpretation of the legislations used to be hired. The language used and
the approach to describing the legislations is recorded in a unusual demeanour and is
misleading.

The historic writers recorded the formation of races, time, area, and the
astronomical legislations because the phrases of a God spoken to guy, that have led stu-
dents of those writings to deduce that there existed a private God who spoke
the phrases written in those books. it's the legislations and the misinterpretation of
the writings that are defined during this publication, and that's what in B.C. time,
was known as historic knowledge.
