There is no remembrance of former things.

CanadianCatholic: Should we totally ignore extra biblical history?
Daniel: no
CanadianCatholic: Then why does your website criticize David Daniels for using extra biblical history?
Daniel: when making an argument about what Scripture says, it's not right to rely on extra biblical sourcesi
CanadianCatholic: But the book was criticizing Roman Catholicism.
Daniel: so?
CanadianCatholic: So what's the problem with examining history?
Daniel: the problem comes when you use extra biblical history as a sole source when making a point about Scripture
CanadianCatholic: So do we know that the extra biblical history actually happened?
Daniel: i don't know that
CanadianCatholic: So we cannot use history to help us interpret the Bible?
Daniel:

First, from this book, it is evident Chick and Daniels do not understand that extra-biblical ancient history has no certain truth to it. They write as if it does, but it does not. As Ecclesiastes says, (Ecclesiastes 1:11 KJV)

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 1:11 - King James Version (KJV)

<11> There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

Daniel:

Newspapers at one day old can contain lies and inaccuracies. How much more extra-biblical ancient history. Such writings and records are nothing to bank on. They are nothing to trust. As Paul warned in Colossians, (Colossians 2:8 KJV)

Scripture: Colossians 2:8 - King James Version (KJV)

<8> Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Daniel: from our article on "Babylon Religion"
CanadianCatholic: So we can never use it, or we can use it sometimes?
Daniel: it's okay to use so long as you don't say it is certainly true
CanadianCatholic: So does David Daniels say that it is certainly true?
Daniel: from the back cover of Daniels' book:

Combining research from anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, art history, mythology and even occultic sources, you will see, in plain language, how Satan's ancient religion of Babylon still lives today as modern Roman Catholicism - the most powerful religious and secular force on the planet.

CanadianCatholic: But you guys are against Catholicism too right?
Daniel: yes, and we show how Catholicism is wrong without relying on extra biblical sourcesii
Daniel: we compare their teachings with Scripture
CanadianCatholic: Oh, but do you have any opinion on whether Roman Catholicism is a repackaged Babylon religion
Daniel: it seems to be a sound notion that catholicism adopted many practices from pagan religions, but I don't know for sure if that's really the case
CanadianCatholic: So you do not think that David Daniels' main idea is TOTALLY false?
Daniel: i don't know
