    20 minutes of this program was enough to know it was wasting my time. Please don't look to this show for any scholarly information about Genesis.

    Two examples are sufficient to explain why I say this:

    1. The narrator talks about SUMERIA and helpfully shows a map where ancient Sumeria was located. Except it's SUMER not SUMERIA. If you can't get the name right what else are you getting wrong?

    2. There is a juicy discussion of Lilith, the supposed first wife of Adam. The writers present this as an ancient legend repressed by the ancient Jewish patriarchy. What they *don't* tell you is that the story of Lilith as the first wife of Adam is a medieval legend and is not in any way supported by ancient writings.
