Subject: Re: The Awful Truth I read your book and thought it was well written and thoughtful. I cannot comment on whether or not I think the events predicted in Revelations already occurred with the fall of the mentioned temple and city as I haven’t read the relevant chapters in Bible. When I have time I will get around to it. I had to disagree with the interpretation you gave of ancient civilizations: you stated that they were composed of slaves under bloodthirsty, sadistic and evil rulers. I would say, some, but not all, were this way. The Egyptian rulers for example weren’t all evil. I think that some of these civilizations’ peoples were composed of what Genesis 6:4 calls the “sons of God” or the “Nihilism”. Further, from reading the Old Testament and the Book of Enoch we can see that some, but not all, of the Nihilism became evil.
