Question by Lightning: Does anyone have access to any of the books in Orson Scott Card’s Women of Genesis series?
If you do, could you tell me whether there’s a bibliography in the back of the books? And if so, what books are listed in the bibliography?

You can look up the book on Amazon dot com, look inside the book, and get the information you want. There doesn’t seem to be a bibliography, per se, but I think I see what you want. For example, in the “Afterward” section of “Sarah” we find these words at the end of the book, on pages 340-341,

“Here are some of the sources I used in preparing this book. They are all interesting and valuable books, even if I often drew conclusions that the authors might not have been pleased with, and even though some of the scholars, at least, were quite avidly of the rejectionist camp. I consulted many other books, but these were the ones I found most useful and trustworthy, and I intend to use again as sources.
Donald B. Redford, “Egypt, Canaan, and Israel in Ancient Times” (Princeton University Press, 1992)
Gosta W. Ahlstrom, “The History of Ancient Palestine” (Sheffield Academic Press/Fortress Press, 1993, 1994)
Gay Robins, “Women in Ancient Egypt” (Harvard University Press, 1993)
Michael Rice, “Egypt’s Making: The Origins of Ancient Egypt, 5000-2000 B.C. (Routledge, 1990)
And for those who do not immediately recognize the source of some of the events early in the novel, those are based on the book of Abraham in the “Pearl of Great Price, a book of scripture recognized only within the LDS Church.
Peter James and Nick Thorp, “Ancient Mysteries (Ballantine, 1999). The great care these authors took in verifying speculation and drawing evidence from many disciplines made this a fascinating and useful tool—especially concerning the location of Sodom and the events surrounding its destruction.
If you have questions or comments about any aspect of this novel, you are invited to visit http://www.hatrack.com or http://www.nauvoo.com. “


I didn’t see any kind of bibliography or Afterward for “Rebecca,” just a kind of study guide. There was some information in the Preface, however. Orson Card wrote on page vii:

“I used all the sources that previously helped me in writing “Sarah,” the companion volume to this book, and in addition, Norman L. Heap’s “Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: Servants and Prophets of God”) Family History Publications, Greensboro NC, 1986, 1999)….

As for “Rachel and Leah,” there is an “Afterward,” but I couldn’t look at all of it. What I saw did not seem to indicate more bibliography. I saw no “Preface” to this book. What you see in these “Look inside” is rather random.

Question by willmin: Does a stone have access to infinite information because it does not have consciousness?
if the universe is information and we as finite beings whose minds can process less than 1% of the stimulus we receive, than is a stone with no consciousness therefore “processing” 100% information… no? is that the hang up? processing? perhaps, like a stone, we process, but consciousness is how we WANT to process and is limited. I am so confused.
