 Cain Cover Final for thumbnail.jpg

 

The enduring question has been: Who was Cain's Wife?

 

The churches have not given an acceptable answer to this question.  Their inability to answer this question creates great doubt as to the accuracy of the Bible.  More and more Christians are giving up on defending the Bible.

 

It is vitally important for Christians to be able to answer this question because it relates to defending the fact that all humans are descendants of Adam and Eve and only their descendants can be saved.

Cain’s wife has been talked about in countries all over the world for hundreds of years.

Skeptics of the Bible have used Cain’s wife time and again to try to discredit the book of Genesis as a true historical record.

 

This story of Cain’s Wife is my initial attempt to reconcile the Bible with the undisputable scientific evidence for creative evolution.  I have combined 4 sets of information: The current Bible, the old Bible before the major changes in late BC and early AD, other Ancient Literature, and the scientific facts of creation/evolution.

 

I try to clarify why the Bible gives 2 accounts of the creation of Adam and Eve.

 

The Bible actually describes the creation of 2 women for him.  The first was Lilith (Genesis 1:27) but her name was removed from the current Bible.  However her name can be seen in the older version of the Bible that existed before later day changes were made.

 

The creation of Eve, Adam’s second mate, was created from Adam’s rib and is described in Genesis 2:18.

 

Lilith has been systematically removed from the Bible, except for one reference in Isaiah 34:14. 

Not only was Lilith removed from the Bible, but she was demonized.

 

The facts remain that she did exist and she did have children that are mentioned throughout the ancient literature.  At lease one of her daughters was called Lilim.

 

Lilim became Cain’s wife.

Re: Are you the author of an eBook? Tell us about it!

President Eisenhower led us to victory in World War II.  He then led our country as President for 8 years.  He understood war and he understood how Washington worked.

 

The major message he gave us as he left the presidency was:

Beware of the Military Industrial Complex.

 

Star Wars Cover for thumbnail.jpg

His warning was very appropriate but it was not heeded by our nation.  I know because I not only witnessed it being ignored, but I participated in using the power of the Military Industrial Complex during my aerospace career.

 

Reagan’s Star Wars describes why and how the power of the Military Industrial Complex gave birth to the Strategic Defense Initiative known as Star Wars.

*****

By the early 1980s it was becoming clear that the USSR would fail.  The major US Aerospace companies who were dependent on military spending were growing concerned that peace would be declared and the military budgets would be significantly decreased.

 

They had to do something!

 

Most of the major US Aerospace Companies maintained a study staff to assess military needs and likely budget actions; and, of course to try to influence such actions and budgets.

 

I know the details of the Martin Marietta Aerospace Company’s studies and the resulting pitches to the military, congress, NATO, and all affected agencies including the President because I was a corporate Vice President and well aware of our studies.  I also had some awareness of such studies at Lockheed Aerospace Company because we had a close relationship with them. 

 

The two Companies eventually merged and is now Lockheed Martin Aerospace Company.

 

Their studies viewed the sharp drops in military budgets at the end of military threats like World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam.

 

They feared that peace would break out and the budgets would be significantly decreased, maybe even as severe as happened after World War II.  President Carter had already dropped the budget to the lowest it had been in over 25 years.

 

The US military budgets would certainly be decreased.  What could the Aerospace Giants do to continue our enriched lifestyles?

 

They reasoned that seeking funds for new weapons in a peace time or seeking funds to “patch” existing weapons would not result in the magnitude of budgets that they needed.

 

They put a study together that showed the merits of pursuing a leap frog to the current weapons technology and jumping into technology of the future.  They started preaching such a strategy to the US military, to Congress, to the President, NATO and any agency that would listen.

 

The pitch got honed until it began to make sense.  The Strategic Defense Initiative, later known as Star Wars, was about to be born.

 

We honed our pitches first with the military staffs in the Pentagon, then the staffers of the key military committees in Congress.  Then we were ready for the President.

 

I remember a key pitch to the President that I believe really convinced him in the merits of pursuing a leap frog to current technology.  The pitch was about how we could use the workings of the brain of a tiny insect to control the battle field.

 

President Reagan was sold.

 

The military budgets ceased the Carter decline and began to rise.

 

The military industrial complex was working; the military budgets were saved.

 

President Reagan absorbed and understood our “pitches” and proposed a new program: The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) on March 23, 1983.  It was to replace the insane old strategic plan of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) that had been in place for many years.

 

The President’s proposal was accepted by the military and Congress and SDI was set up in the Pentagon in 1984.

 

The day after President Reagan’s announcement the Washington Post published a quote from Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy describing the proposal as "reckless Star Wars schemes."

 

The name stuck, Reagan’s Star Wars was born.

Re: Are you the author of an eBook? Tell us about it!

Here are my two ghost novels available for Nook:

 

The Wahl House Curse  

Peter Corbin was in need of a change in his job as a realtor in a busy suburban community. A chance to transfer to a small town seemed to be what he and his wife Sarah needed. They purchased an old house for a bargain price, but with a troubled past. This proved to be something he would soon regret. The restless ghosts quickly made their presence known. (about 59,000 words).

 

 

 

Alone Again

David Sutton struggled to understand what had changed once he and Emily moved into the old suburban house, which was remodeled after being abandoned for a several years. She had been an outgoing and happy person when she and David married. Emily was only a shadow of her former self. She had become withdrawn and heard voices in the house that she felt were trying to harm her. He was worried about her, but felt helpless to prevent the decline. A coworker of David's befriended him to help him cope. Eventually witnessing some strange occurrences in the house himself, he realized that Emily’s problems may not have just been in her mind.

 

Alone Again is about 43,000 words and contains some mature content.

 

Thank you,

John

The Hundred Years Farce  

 

Nook Price $1.99

Most people don't recall—if they ever knew—that the United States Army invaded México in 1846.  A year later they entered México City and received an unconditional surrender.  Then they walked away with Texas, New México and California.  What would have happened if they hadn't walked away?

The Hundred Years Farce, is an alternative history that postulates what might have happened if an obscure piece of American history had gone differently.  That's on the surface.  The soul of this story is social and political satire. 

I'm confident it has something to offend everyone.

The Depths of Deception  

 

"Intelligent, compelling." "The first thing that impressed me was the writing style. It is unique...sensuous in the true meaning of the word..."

America has disappeared some years ago. A neo-fascist Party has come to power in the UK. China is on the rise. A submarine hurtles through the cold dark waters of the Atlantic en route to an unknown destination. Only the ship's doctor knows its true mission, but he is not who he appears to be.

A sweeping tale moving from the violent heart of Apartheid South Africa, to the ruins of the United Kingdom, and down to the edge of the world in the frozen Antarctic landscape, The Depths of Deception is a tale of revenge, served as a shatteringly cold dish.

Kin

 

A new novel by the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of THE TURTLE BOY.

On a scorching hot summer day in Elkwood, Alabama, Claire Lambert staggers naked, wounded, and half-blind away from the scene of an atrocity. She is the sole survivor of a nightmare that claimed her friends, and even as she prays for rescue, the killers -- a family of cannibalistic lunatics -- are closing in.

A soldier suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder returns from Iraq to the news that his brother is among the murdered in Elkwood.

In snowbound Detroit, a waitress trapped in an abusive relationship gets an unexpected visit that will lead to bloodshed and send her back on the road to a past she has spent years trying to outrun.

And Claire, the only survivor of the Elkwood Massacre, haunted by her dead friends, dreams of vengeance... a dream which will be realized as grief and rage turn good people into cold-blooded murderers and force alliances among strangers.

It's time to return to Elkwood.

In the spirit of such iconic horror classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deliverance, Kin begins at the end and studies the possible aftermath for the survivors of such traumas upon their return to the real world -- the guilt, the grief, the thirst for revenge -- and sets them on an unthinkable journey... back into the heart of darkness.

 

"If you took the moral quandaries about revenge, justice and violence against evil from Dennis Lehane's Patrick Kenzie novels, spread it over the sprawling cast of a Stephen King thriller, and mixed it with the Southern Gothic grotesques of Eudora Welty, you might end up with something like Kealan Patrick Burke's new novel, KIN." - LITSTACK

"It's odd that an Irish transplant to the Northern US has written one of the best Southern Gothic novels in recent memory." - DARK DISCOVERIES  

Author of THE TURTLE BOY, KIN, and NEMESIS.
