When your history so rich/compelling that they gotta lie and pretend they’re you! #Israelites #RichestAntiquity #RealJews
The main reason we have to search out our own history. Why would would rely on the accounts of the Greeks to resolve our own antiquity.
When yo don’t have a rich antiquity you make yours up, thus did the Greeks, and in return lied on ours. These people want to be everyone else but THEM.
We as Israelites have the richest antiquity of any nation on the great earth. Study your own records, not his-story of us.
2. And now, in the first place, I cannot but greatly wonder at those men, who suppose that we must attend to none but Grecians, when we are inquiring about the most ancient facts, and must inform ourselves of their truth from them only, while we must not believe ourselves nor other men; for I am convinced that the very reverse is the truth of the case. I mean this, - if we will not
be led by vain opinions, but will make inquiry after truth from facts themselves; for they will find that almost all which concerns the Greeks happened not long ago; nay, one may say, is of yesterday only. I speak of the building of their cities, the inventions of their arts, and the description of their laws; and
as for their care about the writing down of their histories, it
is very near the last thing they set about. However, #they
so far, #that #they #were #the #Egyptians
, the #Chaldeans
, and the #Phoenicians
(for I will not now reckon
ourselves among them) that have preserved the memorials of the
most ancient and most lasting traditions of mankind;
3. How can it then be other than an absurd thing, for the Greeks
to be so proud, and to vaunt themselves to be the only people
that are acquainted with antiquity, and that have delivered the
true accounts of those early times after an accurate manner? Nay, who is there that cannot easily gather from the Greek writers themselves, that they knew but little on any good foundation when they set to write, but rather #wrote #their #histories #from #their
? Accordingly, they confute one another in their own books to purpose, and are not ashamed.
