There seems to be many theories about who killed Nimrod.

Every time I look into this, I find many contradicting thoeries.

Anybody know?

Thanks everyone.

Unstated.

I believe Hislop said Shem did in hispoorly researched (fraudulently researched?) "The Two Babylons"..

I think by unstated, you mean as in unstated by the Bible?

I haven't read Alexander Hyslop's book, but I'd like to. (more for entertainment, than from a perspective of real research)

How was this book possibly, fraudulently researched? (not sarcasm, honest question)

Wondering if you mean his interpretations (of scripture) may be flawed?


I have heard the proposition put forth, that Shem was the man. This seems to be reoccurring, and commonly thought. ( I don't have a dog in this fight)

Just hit the wiki page for "the two Babylons" for an explanation of the problems with the book. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Two_Babylons

I do reject his theology along with the harlot (Catholicism) and her daughters (Protestantism). His theology was probably "mainstream" Protestantism and his book isn't bogus based on doctrinal grounds, but just to poor/fraudulent research. His understanding of who the harlot was is correct and very little research is required to reach that conclusion.

The proposition that it was Shem probably all stems from Hislop's book as the common source.

I've read The two Babylons.
It is an interesting premise.I am aware that he got MANY things wrong in his book. He was using the best information available to him in the mid-19th century. There has been a huge increase in knowledge since then.
I think it's unfair to throw everything he did out, He , without a doubt, jumped to many conclusions that don't hold up to current knowledge.
I wish someone would go be and reexamine his work and see if it holds water still.

Never the less, I believe, if you look at Egyptian Mythology, it rather supports the idea the Shem either killed, or had him killed. Osiris seems to fit Nimrod's description well, and Set seems to match well with Shem. Set is often described in bad ways, which would make sense if you were a worshiper of Osiris.
I don't hold to that as absolute though, and if I'm wrong, no big whoop.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I heard the other day that Noah's son Seth, led an army that defeated Nimrod's army....(heard this story before)

.....and because of this, some credit Seth with the killing of Nimrod also. (not saying this is the case, just another piece to the puzzle)
