  1. Dear Mr. Kimball,

    I happened to get to meet you at the Tzemach worship service when my wife and I visited Florida some 6 or 7 years ago. Now I skimmed a portion of your history of the Celts on this site and discovered that the La Têne discovery was made 150 years ago. I happen to live just a few miles away form there. Since this is only a few miles away from Neuchâtel (at the lake of the same name) the town now has a very interesting archeological museeum with stuff from LaTêne on display. The most famous I think is a Roman wheel that was found burried at the shore of the lake in LaTêne.
    My question to you: are you following the writings of Joel C Rosenberg (Epicenter) and if so, what do you – a specialist on the Biblical view of history – think of his warnings? Are you also concerned about what is going to happen to our children and grandchildren. Isn’t it scary? What do you as “a member of the so-called “Religious Right” propose we do to wake up the sleeping church? What should we learn from a Biblical view of history? I hope you are following Dr. Dobson’s interviews of FOF on KCBI this week?


  2. Scott,

    It’s good to find you on the ‘Net. I just noticed that you moved. How is it up there?

    Please, keep in touch. Say “Hi” to Leive for me.


  3. Hi Charles,

    Just wanted to thank you for your hospitality last month.

    We talked about Cebuano bibles, and you were saying Leive was wanting an online copy of the newer version. The link included here is the newer cebuano version (but the new testament only).

    It may help her. Please pass it along.

  4. You did not include your education in your profile, Mr. Kimball. Where did you study and what is your degree and area of study?

  5. Dear Mr. Clark,

    Thanks for the tip, I just went over to Facebook and joined. Did you notice that David Rohl himself left a few comments on my blog, when I had questions about the New Chronology?

    Pleased to Meet You,

    Charles Kimball

  6. Charles, I hope things are going well with you. I realize you love birds and I have a friend who has a congo african grey who needs a new home. If you think you are interested you may email me.
    Good luck in the job search. talk to you soon.

  7. Netanyahu has and looks like he has more leadership experience. The idiot Obama never ran so much as a lemonade stand before he became president. People look so stupid when they are holding a cigarette too.

  8. Hi, I am preparing an ESL online course course for teaching reading comprehension. I’d like to include your ‘9 things that will disappear…’ (which I’ll have to slightly adapt), with your permission.

  9. Dear Ms. Goldenblatt, It is okay with me if you quote the article “9 Things That Will Disappear In Our Lifetime.” Go ahead. However, I need to let you know two things. First, I am not the original author. Whoever wrote it did not leave a name on the page where I found it. I said I did not know the author in my comments (the blue text in the article), but somehow I got credit for writing it anyway. Second, I wrote my own version of the article for my main website, where I expanded the list of disappearing items from 9 to 40. You can see that article here: http://xenohistorian.faithweb.com/holybook/articles/obsolete.html . If you want to give me credit for anything, give me credit for the new, longer article.

  11. Aw, this was a really good post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a good article… but what can I say…
    I hesitate a lot and never manage to get anything done.

  12. What are the core or basic lessons taught Writing classes? One of the first things I learned about was Freytags Pyramid. I was told that isn’t an across the board learning device. So what is? I’m really curious. In poetry I was taught, ‘if it means too many things to too many people it misses it’s mark’. I have since learned that good writing tends to bring out different reactions in different people and different interpretations. How can learning about creative writing (creativity is so individualized) be standardized?.

  13. Exceptionally well written! Is there anything else I could read to learn more about this? You appear to know a lot about this. My bestie introduced me to your pages.

  14. Any additional suggestions or hints? Try to make the guest article as cool as possible by promoting and dropping links. Just wanted to say fantastic website! Spot on with this post.

  15. I love God’s sense of Irony. So just when I about to give up finding a resource like your site I found you and decide that I didn’t in the end have to create it and do a long years of painstaking (but really just fun) research from the bottom up because I found YOU

    I found you by your series on Africa and it read like I was reading something I would write, be it more articulate and concise, if I was a little older and had a little more knowledge. For instance you came to many of the natural conclusions and presumptions that I would have. So I had to find out who you were:

    This is where I can just imagine if God were us would be waiting in anticipation to laugh with us at his irony. Besides sharing your same background in ethnicity, religion and nationality including the “Jewish leanings” We have an odd geographic reversal, I started my life in NY moved to Central Florida and my next stop will be in California. Perhaps only I find this funny but I had to share, also I wanted to say thank you ..because I you I still have to find something to write about that’s new.

    Your great keep up the good work!
