Dissertations on the Mosaical creation, deluge, building of Babel, and confusion of tongues, &c. I. Against modern Infidels ; shewing, that Moses justly declares the whole Universe, Matter and Form, to have been created by God: His Authority, both as a Human and Divine Legislator: That the Mosaical Account, Gen. i. contains nothing contrary to Natural Philosophy: Explications of it, Verse by Verse: Where, of the Powers of the Air ; of the Expansion ; of the Production of Light ; of the Waters above the Firmament ; of the Fable of the Preadamites, against Peirerius ; of the Obligation of the Sabbath from the Beginning, against Monsieur Jurieu: That the material Elements were not the original Gods of the Gentiles, against Monsieur Le Pluche: The Origin of Idolatry, and what the Heathen Gods were originally: That the God of the Jews was not a mere local and tutelar God, against some Moderns: Of the Existence of Spirits, good and bad, and their Apparitions: Why Devils called Hairy-Ones, &c. II. Against the Hutchinsonians: That the Mosaical Account is an historical revealed Truth, not a System of Philosophy ; much less their System of Fire, Light, and Spirit: Errors of that System against Theology and Philosophy: That their Explications of the Hebrew Words Elohim, Ruah, Rakia, Shamaim, &c. containing such Errors against both, must be wrong: Of the Defects of modern Systems, not excepting the Newtonian ; particularly, where they depart from their great Master: Whether the Scriptures are blameable for not supposing the Earth's Motion: The natural Reasons against such a Motion, though not Demonstrations, justify them, on that Head: Of the Figure of the Earth, &c. III. That the Deluge, though universal, did not dissolve the whole Mass of the Earth into a Hodgepodge, against Dr. Woodward and others: Physical Proofs for the Truth of the Deluge. IV. That the Confusion of Babel was of Languages, not of Confessions of Religion, against the Hutchinsonians. With several other curious Enquiries. By S. Berington by Simon Berington( file )
