Wiseman's book, "New Discoveries in Babylonia about Genesis," totally destroys many of the pretentious claims of the critics. The author also shews that scholars and commentators of all schools of thought have gone astray in dividing Genesis into sections which commence with the formula, including Driver, Wright, Spurrell, Skinner, Carpenter.   In his book New Discoveries in Babylonia About Genesis (, p.*35), P.*J. Wiseman points out that archaeological research gives ample proof that the art of writing began in the earliest historical times known to man. Virtually all modern scholars acknowledge the existence of writing long before the time of Moses (in the second millennium*B.C.E.).
