    There is another reason. Ham's descendants and Japheth's descendants
    depart the region in the previous chapter. The traditional interpretation
    requires us to believe the Bible writer mixed up the chronology. Could it
    be that the writer of Genesis got the chronology right, and the
    interpreters are wrong?
