This is my last video dealing with the world surrounding the ancient Hebrews. After this section we will move on to the Jews, whose culture forms the base for 50% or greater of Western ideas about morality and how one should live.
You will notice that I did not cover the Egyptians or Greeks in this series, but not because they are not important. I left them out because I did not see any compelling evidence in their societies for Allah’s’ existence prior to the time of Mohammed,. Although other researchers made quite a few parallels between the Egyptian gods and Allah, the evidence was not compelling enough for me to include them in this series. Perhaps, as more discoveries are made, this may change.
For the time being, allow me to introduce you to the Ancient Arabians. The pre-readings for this section are very sparse. While there is quite a bit of information on the Ancient Arabians out there, I did not find an age appropriate book or article that I thought was comprehensive enough, so your little Infidel gets a break for this section.
Here is my video:
I also included a wonderful short video illustrating what life in Ancient Arabia was like before the advent of Islam. Listen until you get about halfway through, because after that, it focuses on Mohammed. That will take you a little farther than is necessary at this point.
My sources are listed at the end of this video. If you have any questions, please let me know, and don’t forget to Infidel On!
