Although the idea that all human beings are descended from Adam is a long standing conviction in the West, another version of this narrative exists - humans inhabited the Earth before, or alongside, Adam, and their descendants still occupy the planet. This book traces the history of and debates surrounding the idea of non-Adamic humanity.
Ancestors is a fascinating series of both biblical descriptions and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the lives of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and on down the ancestral line to Noah and his family. Also revealed in each chapter are the lives of a rugged pioneering family making their way through much of the 1800s as part of one of the greatest human migrations in history. “Terry interestingly weaves together parallel narratives involving his pioneer ancestors and a retelling of the Genesis story. In doing so, both sets of ancestors are thus presented in a way that puts these people’s lives into a day-by-day perspective.” —Wayne Clark, Bible Teacher and “Minister in the Marketplace” “Thank you for allowing me to read your historical fiction manuscript, Ancestors. I found it very interesting!” —Dr. Richard Lee, founding pastor, First Redeemer Church, and general editor, The American Patriot’s Bible
This book is the result of information about the five generations of ancestry for the families of Esther Ray McClintock, Frank Pickens Williams, and Merlene Faye Hutto Byars (Klutzow) being handed down to them by their parents and also because Esther, Pickens and Merlene have explored cemeteries in many states and in Europe. - Xlibris Podcast Part 1: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/our-multi-national-heritage-to-adam-1 - Xlibris Podcast Part 3: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/our-multi-national-heritage-to-adam-3 - Xlibris Podcast Part 5: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/our-multi-national-heritage-to-adam-5
The book presents the life and works of one of Germany's most famous computer scientists, Carl Adam Petri. It is written in a vivid and entertaining manner, providing an in-depth discussion of the background behind Petri's best-known contribution to computer science, the Petri net. In this way the book can be read as a first introduction to nets, but it also covers the theoretical, physical and philosophical foundations behind nets, thus facilitating a comprehensive understanding of the wider range of Petri's works. The book is intended for readers with a previous knowledge in computer science, as well as for “interested non-professionals”, who want to get to know a remarkable personality of contemporary science.
In a universe where nearly everyone ponders the meaning of their existence and believes humanity is alone in this reality, powerful inorganic beings from a mysterious realm outside time and space observe and make judgments that affect the course of human history in accordance with specific destinies. A man who has been stalked by evil since childhood is living within a dark world; bound by an unseen enemy, the Adversary, and hopelessly trapped in a prison inside his own mind. Adam is unaware of his special destiny and that Watchers observe and guide events on Earth and elsewhere to provide him an opportunity to freely choose to fulfill his purpose or follow a different path. Though the Watchers give meaning to his otherwise meaningless suffering, only time will tell which path Adam will choose. Will he choose his destiny and defeat his adversary or will he surrender and join him on the Dark Path? Decree of the Watchers shares the tale of one mans journey to fulfill his extraordinary purpose with unseen help from powerful inorganic beings from another dimension.
