Descendants of Moses?
5 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the Tower of Babel installment of the mini-series, the narrator describes the builders of the tower as "the descendants of Moses."

That's like saying George Washington lived many centuries before Alexander the Great.

Or that the light bulb was invented before the wheel.

Or that the guided missile was the forerunner of the bow-and-arrow.

Need I say more?

The writers of The Greatest Heroes of the Bible should have at least paid closer attention to the chronologies of Biblical people and events.
