For centuries there has been mystique around the Four Horse Men of the Apocalypse and Revelations in general. This paper shows through regression analysis that Conquest could represent when Solomon became King, War represents the splitting of the Tribes of Israel after Solomon’s line was challenged. Equally, Famine represents the holocaust-like conditions imposed on the Arabs in the Holy Land by the assumed Israel State today, and Death, which is predicted to occur around the year 3,000, represents the return of Christ.
The paper also discusses the role of the Bible as an insight into apocalyptic pasts in the world history. It is argued that the creation of life on earth is cyclical, and this can be explained by science, and associated with Biblical myths which could be re-tellings of folk tales based on this scientific reality, passed down generations as memes.
The creation and increase in population of mankind in Genesis 1 and 9 can be considered to represent the interbreeding of homo-genus species. The condemnation of mankind for its wrong doings in Genesis 6:1-6 and Romans 1, which can be seen to be reflected in the holocaust of many of God’s children in the Holy Land in the case of the latter. The following drowning of the species in Genesis 6:8 to 8:22 and Revelations 6 can be seen to represent the peak of climate change, where torrential weather conditions drive most species to their death for over indulging in the user of carbon resources.
It can therefore be seen that the creation of mankind is a repeating process, which comes after the flooding of the world (by God or climate change), and is followed by the creation of man (by evolution, or God as Genesis 3), or other advanced beings. If the regression analysis presented is accurate, then theologically Revelations will happen around the year 3,000 where climate change would wipe out all those beings whom cannot live under water as the mammals that evolved from being on the sea to the land after an earlier climate change – or even on top of the water, as with Noah in Genesis 6-9.
