World History 201 Guidelines

Welcome to World History 201.

Find out if Caesar crossed the Rubicon or threw a dollar across it.

This is the forum where world history, in general, can be discussed. Since the WH201, like the other fora in the World History department, is not limited to participation along lines of theology, all may post here.

Please keep the Campus Decorum in mind when posting here--while 'belief' restrictions are not in place, common decency is.

The Tweb rules are in force . . . we're watching you.

    ... derisively!

        So. Doesn't mean it ain't true.

          Does indicate a significant bias, however.

            Oh, yes, indeed. I am definitely on God's side!

                Tubal Cain, for one, and anyone that does not want to hear his side of the story. I'm not sure yet about you.

                    Feminine wiles of the daughters of Eve have no effect on me.






























                    Who am I kidding. I'm a sucker for a woman's tears. But I'm still not going to talk about the rock monsters yet. Try to cope, it's not because I'm being mean to you, but I just don't want to give anything away yet.

If you like such reinterpretations, you may indeed like this movie. I went back and read the Hebrew text after seeing this movie and had to admit that what some are seeing as extreme license would actually be perfectly acceptable from a Jewish midrashic perspective. (Warning: Christian fundamentalists and modernists do not generally appreciate a Jewish midrashic perspective on the Bible.). I will not yet speak about the rock monsters. ;)
                        Brian Mattson makes an interesting case that much of the movie's content comes from the Kabbalah and from Gnostic writings:

                                'Just been to see it. Good graphics but little resemblance to the biblical narrative. I would recommend it to anyone who likes 'monster' movies and baddies chewing legs raw off innocent animals.
