The division of humanity into their separate populations resulted in different ‘races,’ or preferably people groups , by a natural process of separation of gene pools. However, because of Ross’s misunderstanding of variation within a kind, he erroneously believes that God’s intervention at Babel included direct creation of different human ‘racial’ characteristics. After Babel, some of these groups became isolated from civilization, so they resorted to living in caves and using stone tools. Some of these isolated populations developed different characteristics and resulted in people we call Neandertals and Homo erectus . Ross believes that Neandertals predated Adam and were not true humans but soulless hominids. Ross’s faulty dating of Adam would imply that the Australian Aborigines may not have been his descendants, which would make them non-human, under his own criteria.
Jews in Egypt faced acute problems in the 1940s but these did not set their mass departure in motion. Rioting against Jews occurred in November1945, then resumed in June-November 1948, 26 the latter time inspired by the war with Israel. An amendment to the Egyptian Companies Law dated July 29, 1947, required that 40 percent of a company's directors and 75 percent of its employees be Egyptian nationals, causing the dismissal and livelihood of many Jews, 85 percent of whom did not possess Egyptian nationality. 27 A letter to the editor of Akhir Sa'a in 1948 offers some insight into the predicament of Egyptian Jews:
The congregation that Doctor Clark joined in 1751 was first called the Ballybay New Erection, but later became known as Cahans. An historical oddity is this: Although the emigration of 1764 is now called "The Cahans Exodus," the name "Cahans" did not come into formal use to describe the place from which the exodus originated until almost forty years after the exodus. Until about 1800, the meeting house in the townland of Lisnaveane near Ballybay was called "Ballibay New Erection" in the records of the Secession Presbytery of Monaghan. Not until after 1800 was it called the "Congregation of Cahans," or "the Dissenting Congregation of Cahans, known by the name of Burgher Seceders."
