Question: Ask The Nuwaupians, Can you show us a source outside of York's books that verifies Abracadabra coming from "Abras Cadaver" meaning bodies of lepers?

Answer: HUH!?!?

Here's yet another part of Nuwaupian doctrine that shows deception and silliness, yet because York taught it, his followers believe it. York wrote in his so-called Holy Tablets the following.

 

 

Elbrus or home of those Abras beings, lepers of the mountains, also called the sons of Canaan. Thus the term Abracadabra a mystical word used in incantations or as a charm to ward off disease.  Originally said Abras Cadaver used to mean the bodies of lepers.

-Holy Tablets 3:156-158

 

According to the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica:

Abracadabra, a word analogous to Abraxas (q.v.), used as a magical formula by the Gnostics of the sect of Basilides in invoking the aid of beneficent spirits against disease and misfortune. It is found on Abraxas stones which were worn as amulets. Subsequently its use spread beyond the Gnostics, and in modern times it is applied contemptuously  (e.g. by the early opponents of the evolution theory) to a conception or hypothesis which purports to be a simple solution of apparently insoluble phenomena. The Gnostic physician Serenus Sammonicus gave precise instructions as to its mystical use in averting or curing agues and fevers generally. The paper on which the word was written had to be folded in the form of a cross, suspended from the neck by a strip of linen so as to rest on the pit of the stomach, worn in this way for nine days, and then, before sunrise, cast behind the wearer into a stream running to the east. The letters were usually arranged as a triangle in one of the following ways

 

The first known mention of the word was in the second century AD in a book called Liber Medicinalis by Quintus Serenus Sammonicus, physician to the Roman emperor Caracalla, who prescribed that malaria sufferers wear an amulet containing the word written in the form of a triangle:

 

A – B – R – A – C – A – D – A – B – R – A

A – B – R – A – C – A – D – A – B – R

A – B – R – A – C – A – D – A – B

A – B – R – A – C – A – D – A

A – B – R – A – C – A – D

A – B – R – A – C – A

A – B – R – A – C

A – B – R – A

A – B – R

A – B

A

 

Nowhere is there mentioned that this word " Abras Cadaver" has any connection whatsoever to the term body of lepers.  The word Abracadabra was worn on an amulet to cure diseases and sicknesses such as malaria, stomach illnesses, bone disease, fever etc...  So why did York place this deception in his Holy book?

"They make statements about events and time, but they don't produce the evidence, or the document to support what they say, which leaves the reader in the same state they are in religion, to believe, but not have facts"
