It could be tough if we just use the bible alone, as the interpretation requires additional skill and other holy books. We have to use science and archiological discoveries just to make it easier. Accordingly, both science and bible agree on one point, that the original home of Cush was in North/East Africa and the bible clearly says Havilah was the son of cush and other place as the discendant of sem. Therefore Havilah could be somewhere around the red sea.<quoted text>
"Do you see the trend in this family to name sons after remembered lands from before the flood? Havilah and his descendants settled in the region between the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea, the area we now call the Arabian Desert, on the northwest end. "
First, lol, What bible were you JUST quoting from?
You are CLEARLY saying that HAMITE Havilah is in the Arabian Desert. NOT the AFRICAN Continent.(You've made a calculated distinction.)
With that being said, SHEMITE Havila, Ophir, Seba/Sheba are in the CONTINENT of AFRICA. NOT the Arabian Desert.
I think you should make an introduction to your body parts.
Foot meet mouth.
Where was Ham? Bible tends to locate Ham as some where in Iraq, but Scientifically, Ham is connected with afro-asciatic founder and believed today to have started in the area between northern Sudan and Erytria/Ethiopia. I think when the Bible says 'Ham to be son of Noah', it is just spiritually and not biologically. Hence Ham never lived in Iraq, but his grand son Nimroid
