Talk:Canaan

From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
Jump to: navigation, search

Unless I'm missing something, Canaan is strictly a geographical area. I'm not aware of a person named Canaan. Why is this in the Biography category? Pharos 19:22, 22 March 2007 (EDT)

The land of Canaan was named after Ham's son - Noah's grandson.--Mr. Ashcraft 20:14, 22 March 2007 (EDT)
Point taken. So is this page anticipated to be about the man, or the land? I would expect that it would be about the land, since that's the most common use, and the linked pictures seem to agree with that. If so, Biography is inappropriate. Pharos 12:38, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

I have created a disambiguation page to explain the differences and allow users to pick the one that's appropriate for them, and I will redirect this page there, instead of to the land article, where it is, now. Feel free to revert it my changes make things worse. ~ MD Otley (talk) 17:00, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

Fomorians of Irish Mythology

In the Irish mythology chapter of After The Flood Bill Cooper records records that the Fomorians claimed Hamitic descent. I also agree that their the same as the people inhabiting Britain already when Brutus arrived. Cooper only mentions them in the context of their attack on Nemeth's colony, but they where in fact the oldest inhabitants of Ireland before Partholon even arrived. I believe they built the great Megalithic structures of Western Europe like Stonehenge.--MithirandirOlorin 18:48, 26 May 2011 (PDT)

Because of Genesis 9 I'm inclined to view that the Pre-Indoeuropean inhabitants of Europe (Including but not limited to the so called Neanderthals) where probably Canaanites, maybe with some Edomites (In the Talmud Edom is used as code for Rome, some way this is from Romans intermarrying with the Herodian Dynasty, but the DSS now shoe it infact Predates Herod) Esau's family of course intermarried with Canaanites. My recent comment son Talk pages for Arkite, Cyanide and Girgashite should be insightful here. The fact that Kronos is often identified with virus Canaanite deities and may even be of Semitic origin, possibly related to the Hebrew word for Horn (Qeren) and/or the name Cheren(Keren) mentioned in Esau's genealogy (Genesis 35) is also intriguing.--MithirandirOlorin 18:48, 26 May 2011 (PDT)
