Tone Circle Publishing  The Cradle of Science & Religion

Author Howard Barry Schatz, a computer specialist, classically trained composer, and archaeomusicologist, has spent the last 42 years deciphering and authenticating monotheism’s most ancient and sacred text, called the Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Creation). These are the only writings attributed to the great patriarch Abraham by the Orthodox Jewish community, and within that community they are the seminal writings on monotheism and Kabbalah. Unfortunately, this text has never been properly understood, and as a result, the deepest meaning of the Hebrew Bible has never been properly understood.


The key to deciphering the Book of Creation is to approach the text as a Babylonian Base 60 mathematical treatise. In his two books on the subject, The Lost Word of God (Tone Circle Pub., 2007), and The Science of Religion: A Framework for Peace (Tone Circle Pub., 2012), Schatz reveals that Abraham's Book of Creation might be likened to the Rosetta Stone for Scripture, or perhaps the owner's manual for Scripture. His books demonstrate that Biblical allegory is embroidered around Abraham's lost mathematics. Modern day Kabbalah has been reduced to verbal descriptions of Abraham's lost mathematics.


During the Babylonian Captivity (circa 586 - 537 BCE), Jews were afraid of loosing their language and culture, so they began compiling Hebrew and Babylonian stories that would soon become the core of the Hebrew Bible. Many of these stories derived from Mesopotamian astrology and mythology, but all these Biblical stories were tightly coupled to Abraham's mathematical, monotheistic template. Science and monotheism were born within the same Mesopotamian cradle of civilization. Understanding monotheism in terms of mathematics and science also has enormous implications for the three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The existence of an underlying mathematical and scientific template for Scripture opens the door to a profound global conversation powerful enough to tear down the walls of dogmatic fundamentalism that still separate the three Abrahamic faiths.


Only the actual writings of Abraham would have a priori credentials to clarify ambiguous theological passages, or provide a theological model  that would enable clerics to correct stale or inaccurate religious dogma. Only the words and wisdom of Abraham himself could possibly carry enough weight to tear down the walls that unnecessarily divide the "children of Abraham" from one another.
