Herman Cummings describes himself as “the leading expert on the book of Genesis.” He’s the author (using the pen-name “Ephriam”) of Moses Didn’t Write About Creation! We have diligently reported on his long struggle for recognition (those posts are in our list of Self-Published Geniuses), including the numerous intellectual challenges he’s issued — all of which have been ignored. Yet he perseveres.
Herman’s latest article is titled An Open Letter to the Archbishop of Westminster It’s posted at the website iNewp — the People’s Press, and it tells of Herman’s continuing efforts to tell the world about Genesis. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Earlier this year (2011), I had read about the Easter message given by Pope Benedict XVI. So I wrote an article named “A Challenge Given to the Pope”. It was a universal challenge given to the leader of the “universal (Catholic) church”. During Easter Week, the Pope had said for all to believe the message of Genesis, but not to take the scripture literally (Creative Reason). He implied that Genesis was morally true, but not literally true.
Herman wrote his challenge to the Pope. What happened then? He tells us:
I sent the article to the Pope, and to various divisions of the Vatican (the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Congregation for the Clergy, the Congregation for Catholic Education, and the Congregation for Religious). Not just once, but three times. And for good measure, I also sent the article to the news media and Catholic sites in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Southeast Asia, England, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, and all USA Catholic websites and magazines I could find, along with 54 newspapers and news sites in the USA.
Wow — Herman doesn’t mess around! He continues:
How often does someone publically challenge the Pope on points of doctrine and truth of scripture? Don’t you think that should have made headline news? Who (or what) is controlling the news media, and hiding the truth from the people?
We didn’t notice any headlines. Maybe Herman’s right and there is a media conspiracy. Well, what was the Pope’s reaction? Herman says:
The Pope had the whole month of May to respond. Do you think that he was willing to retract his false statements, and inquire about the truth of Genesis? No! After five months, I still have received no communication. But I also sent the article to the “Pope in Exile” and the Greek Orthodox.
What happened then?
Yet still also, no response.
“Yet still also.” Herman certainly has a way with words. What did he do next? Here you go:
Plus I wrote to the Archbishops of Canterbury and York (Anglican Church), but only an assistant of the York Bishop responded, yet it didn’t amount to anything. When it comes to the truth of scripture, the Clergy runs and hides. Perhaps, for that reason, church attendance is on the decline, and the doctrine of Atheism (evolution theory) is not being opposed.
Yes, that might explain it. One final excerpt:
As I said earlier, I received no response from the Pope. Neither did I get any response back from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. So this letter is written to the Archbishop of Westminster, to see if he is any more “godly” than the others. Will he also join the “council of the ungodly”, and “stand in the way” of Bible believers? The correct rendition of Genesis is the “Observations of Moses”, and is the explanation of the 600+ million year fossil record of escalating death.
One day, the world will recognize Herman’s wisdom. Until then, we urge him to carry on the good fight.
