VI.-The atheistical pretence of religion's being an invention of statesmen, and

therefore false, clearly confuted, and shewn to be both impertinent and false.
For that, was the Atheist's account of religion right, it would not follow that
religion was false, but the contrary— But the pretence false and groundless,
religion having existed before the civil magistrate was in being

Appendis, showing that the omission of a future state in the Mosaic dispensation

Notes to the Third Book

1. Introduction, shewing that the universal Pretence to Revelation, proves the

Truth of some, and particularly of the Jewish

137

11.- Enters on the third Proposition-Some general reflections on the high anti-

quity of Egypt ; and of the equal extravagance of both parties in their attempts

to advance or depress that antiquity.

III.-The high antiquity of Egypt proved from Scripture-And from the ancient

Greek historians, supported and confirmed by Scripture- In the course of this

inquiry the rise and progress of the art of medicine is treated of and explained 149

IV.–The high antiquity of Egypt proved from their Hieroglyphics — Their nature,

original, and various kinds, explained— Proved to be the original of the art of

Onirocritics or interpretation of Dreams, and likewise of Brute-worship-In

this inquiry is contained the history of the various modes of information by

Speech and Writing-And of the various modes of ancient idolatry, in the

order they arose from one another

172

V.-Sir Isaac Newton's chronology of the Egyptian empire confuted, and shewn to

contradict all sacred and profane antiquity, and even the nature of things-In

the course of this Dissertation the causes of that infinite confusion in the

ancient Greek history and mythology are inquired into and explained ...... 246

VI.-. Proves that Moses was skilled in all the learning of Egypt, and the Israelites

violently inclined to all their superstitions—That the Ritual Law was insti-

tuted partly in opposition to those superstitions, and partly in compliance to

the People's prejudices-- That neither that Ritual nor Moses's Learning is

any objection to the divinity of his Mission-But a high confirmation of it-In

which Herman Witsius' arguments to the contrary are examined and con-

futed; and the famous Prophecy in the twentieth chapter of Ezekiel explained

and vindicated against the absurd interpretation of the Rabbins and Dr.
