Everyone with curiosity about ancient history will hopefully find this site interesting and useful as we continue our unconventional tack through a mounting sea of evidence that much of what we have been taught is “not necessarily so.”

The site is, though, particularly designed for those who want to “dig” into the subject in order to enhance and strengthen their biblical worldview.

For homeschools or private schools, e-books (and print versions) will be available with study questions and tests, and offered individually or in special course packages. The comment section of each blog will offer opportunities for online discussion.

They Came From Babel was originally a 244-page book we published in 1994 which presented an unconventional view of ancient man as physically superior, mentally sophisticated, and capable of accomplishments far beyond anything most of us have ever imagined. It introduced some of the patriarchs and pagans who established the thoughts and cultures of mankind, and whose influence still shapes our world today.

The book included research regarding ancient geography, ancient calendars, ancient navigation, and the basic history behind world mythology and the “Mystery System.” We delved into some controversial topics such as Egyptian history, the pyramids (in particular the Great Pyramid), and Tychonian vs. Copernican astronomy. We even looked into classical and quantum physics.

They Came From Babel was originally intended to be the first volume of a “Biblical History of the Americas.” We had discovered a growing number of what we call “maverick” secular researchers who continue to unintentionally lend support to the biblical record of ancient intelligence and the dispersion following the worldwide Flood. These archaeoastronomers and cultural and archaeological diffusionists offer fascinating insights and discoveries when viewed through a “biblical lens.”

Our original publication was the culmination of several decades of interest, and a few years of pre-internet research done the old-fashioned way — interlibrary loan. Even in today’s marvelous internet world, a good research librarian is worth a mammoth’s weight in gold!

Now, They Came From Babel will be offered as a website-based blog with a global reach, featuring e-books (and eventually print versions) concerning an even broader range of topics centering around a biblical view of ancient history. Much research has come available in the past 15 years. We have enhanced and even modified our own viewpoints and continue to pursue a greater knowledge and understanding of these fascinating and relevant topics.

They Came From Babel is part of the family of Health Around Your Corner Publications.
