Refutations Of Biblical Proportions!!!

- "It really seems to me that in the midst of great tragedy, there is always the possibility that something terribly funny will happen."

Philip K. Dick
Forgive, please-this post is not going to be my usual nonsensical musings. I have Refaim to slay!!
Here’s the deal-along with the “Four Blood Moons” nonsense which is discomfiting the easily gullible, there’s another wisenheimer-in-his-own-eyes “Scholar” who is doing the work that American Gnostics won’t do: announcing to the world that he has the answers to questions that only the noble high-minded seekers of truth will ask.
Here’s what burns my goat on the altar of ignorance: he dresses up his nonsense in Biblical terms, pretending that his “wisdom” is authenticated by Scripture. That bugs me.
I have great respect for Scripture, and I do not like to see it used to shore up unbiblical theories and the wild imaginings of Man.
Horn is the name of the mystical miscreant-I will not name him or link to his writings.
Instead I will show you all (if anyone is reading this) how the trick is done and undone.
Ready? Horn posits that the Nimrod of the Bible is the same entity as Gilgamesh, Osiris and Apollo. Here’s the actual verse from Genesis upon which he hangs his theory:

8Now Cush became the father of Nimrod; he became a mighty one on the earth. 
9He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD.” Genesis 10:8-9
Horn makes much of “he became a”, suggesting that he was turned into something other than human.
Problem: Nimrod was the grandson of Ham, great-grandson of Noah, and nothing else in Scripture even remotely mentions any such transformation. If you think I’m making too much of this, Horn believes in what he calls “Trans-humanism” where human and animal DNA are/were mixed to create something else that could be inhabited by others, which I’ll get to in a minute.
All of Horn’s theories about Nimrod’s transformation depend upon his interpretation of “he became a”.
Gilgamesh, Osiris and Apollo (the god, not the evangelist) are not mentioned in Scripture. That Nimrod is connected with these other names is ridiculous speculation not supported by Scripture.
Only one more example to get your head spinning. 
Let’s go to Exodus!
37Now the sons of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, aside from children. 
38A mixed multitude also went up with them, along with flocks and herds, a very large number of livestock.” Exodus 12:37-38
Hope you are ready for this. The verse above mentions “mixed multitude”. According to Horn, the mixed multitudes included “Nefilim, Giborim, Anakim, Refaim Amalekim”.  What are they?
Transhumans like Nimrod? Maybe kinda sorta, if they weren't Egyptian bankers and magicians.
That is reading an entire hybrid human/animal mythology into “mixed multitude” to come up with “EVIDENCE”.
Doesn’t pass the stink test. Fail. Horn will have to re-take mythological theology 101. 
He’s better hurry-he also posits that Pope Frankie is *possibly* the False Prophet mentioned in Revelation according to a 900 year old prophesy by a Catholic “Saint”. And those four blood moons mean that mankind is in BIG TROUBLE!!! End of the world as we know it by 2016. Yea…..nope.
I want Christ to come back, but I don't look outside of the Bible for any wisdom concerning His return. There they're be divils!

I didn't want to natter on for too long, as my stuff is hard enough to read when it's short.
Don't trust any Bible 'scholar' who attempts to prove anything by sources outside of Scripture.
If it ain't Scripture, it AIN'T.
