InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he begins with a discussion of memory loss; then he pivots to the main topic, the Bible. He points to the work of Julius Wellhausen, in the early twentieth century, inaugurating a new era of biblical criticism by identifying different authors of the five books of Moses. He points to the lack of evidence, in ancient Egyptian records, of any references to the events portrayed in the Book of Exodus. He notes that excavations of the City of Jericho have found the the ancient walls decayed slowly over time, and did not collapse suddenly as is portrayed in the Joshua. He also highlights the work of Yuval Noah Harari and his emphasis of the human capacity for creating fictional stories.
