Why Some People Should be Banned as Bible Teachers

Posted By on May 12, 2010

I blogged this over on PaleoBabble, where I referred to what you’ll see in the video as the holy grail of paleobabble. For this audience, all I can say is that this is the best argument I’ve ever seen for a global teaching magisterium like the Roman Catholic Church has and enforces. Some people should simply not be allowed to speak about the Bible in public (and maybe in private). Watch and weep (or laugh till you cry).

    Thanks for the laugh Mike! I enjoy reading your blogs.

    We haven’t forgotten about our hope to have you join us at Grassroots Church. I will send you an e-mail soon with some updates of what we are thinking. It might not work, but then again thing might be able to come together for it.

    Hello Mr. Heiser!,

    Stitchin vs Heiser

    There is an opportunity for you to clarify some objections to some of your claims which I feel would be very helpful.

    Please see – http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1064491/pg3#16915321

    We would be very interested in hearing your REBUTTAL to some analysis made on your claims.

    Best Regards

      I don’t do Sitchin stuff on this blog. For my info, go to my site. The videos and the material are self-explanatory. Speaking of opportunities, I’m not the one who hasn’t agreed to debate Sitchin — that would be the other way around.

    Dr. Heiser,

    I know you don’t subscribe to the Ancient Astronaut Theory, so do you believe some of the advanced astronomical knowledge possessed by the ancients came from the Watchers? I apologize if you’ve commented on this before in your blogs and I’ve overlooked it.

    It seems we have more information about what you don’t believe rather than what you do. I loved The Facade but I’m not sure if Brian’s hypotheses are your own, if they were completely fictional, or a combination of the two.

    According to what I’ve read about Zecharia Sitchen’s latest book, now he’s saying Nin.Puabi – whose remains were found at the Royal Tomb of Ur? – is a direct descendant of the Anunnaki. There’s even an online petition hoping to make him prove his claims via DNA testing at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/aliendna/ If it happens (which I doubt it will) and there is some unusual DNA found, then what?

    A lot of people (including Christians) are going to buy in on this – even without DNA evidence. Where’s Dr. Scott when we need him?

      Sitchin is just trying to milk more cash out of the gullible public. Please direct people to my http://www.sitchiniswrong.com site. That’s why it’s there.

      I don’t think there’s much of anything “advanced” about the astronomical knowledge of the ancients. They just knew a lot more than what they are given credit for (archaeoastronomers know how they knew what they knew – they were keen observers and spent decades and even longer tracking thing; we don’t do naked eye astronomy like that any more since we have technology).

      Dr. Scott is overwhelmed with a good half dozen projects now. He needs a secretary and benefactor (!) so he can devote himself to these sorts of things. But honestly, I am starting to feel a sense of urgency about the sequel. Can’t really say more.

    Oh boy @ Amazed !!!

    http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1064491/pg3#16915321

    The forum above is full of straw-man and misrepresentations of not only what Mike heiser has written and stated about Genesis 6 and fallen angels but also of OT scholarship including Ancient Near Eastern studies. I am Amazed at how people misread/misunderstand clear enough writings. They confuse the Sons of God with the offspring, the nephilim.

    Gosh….

    My last comment didn’t show up. Please delete this one if it does. :P

    All these Sitchin comments. sorry MSH.

    It must bug you like crazy to have all these moonunits wandering around laughing maniacally thinking they’ve caught some sort of deep conspiracy about the highest christian thinkers secretly trying to plot against the brave zecharia sitchin.

    Hey! wait maybe we can get face guy hooked up with sitchin and start a whole new area of “study” for ol’ zech. I can see it now THE ANCIENT ALIENS MADE THE FACE!

    Then again someone would still have to tell me why abductees report that their experience stops when they call out in the name and authority of Jesus…that may be too far out for nakedbible. mea culpa.

    Hey, it’s that guy off the radio.

  11. Kevin says:

    Should call Richard Hoagland

  12. Charity Remington says:

    The best part of the entire video is where he says something like, “I think one of the reasons people have been so supportive is because we have been SO careful.” Such scholarly caution, how I admire it. lol.

  13. Areadymind says:

    Ughh, that video was exhausting to watch. Almost painful.

  14. Anne says:

    He forgot to mention the monkey face and upraised paw in the top right corner at 1:24 shrieking at the “face.” LOL
