0001 Biblical scholars James Hoffmeier, Gordon Wenham and Kenton Sparks contribute to a little book, titled Genesis: History, Fiction or Neither?, edited by Charles Halton and published by Counterpoint Press (affiliated with Zondervan, Grand Rapids, Michigan).
0002 The format is straightforward. Each contributor offers an essay and responds to the other two essays.
0003 These essays and responses are written shortly after the e-publication of An Archaeology of the Fall, by Razie Mah, which dramatizes a scientific hypothesis about the potentiation of civilization (and how the Genesis stories can be re-imagined in light of the hypothesis).
Why is this significant?
The contributors to Genesis: History, Fiction or Neither?: Three Views on The Bible’s Earliest Chapters, are not aware of the hypothesis of the first singularity.
Their arguments may be examined a point of view that is aware of the hypothesis.
Finally, their innocence of the hypothesis may illuminate the origins of our current Lebenswelt, from within.
0004 What is the first singularity?
The series, Crystallizations of the Fall, at the smashwords website, offers a succinct introduction. This series contains two works.
The First Singularity and its Fairy Tale Trace offers a brief scientific account for the potentiation of unconstrained social complexity.
Comments on Original Sin and Original Death: Romans 5:12-19 offers a reading of Paul consistent with the consequences of the first singularity.
