[b-hebrew] Amalekites

The Stone Chumash, page 47, does not have Amalek listed as one of the 
70 nations descended from Noah's sons.

There's a geneological chart of Abraham's family on page 7, one of 
Esau's descendents on page 197, and one of Jacob's descendents on 
page 261.

 From the chart, Amalek was the son of Timna and Eliphaz (a concubine 
relationship), Timna was the daughter of Seir, and Eliphaz the son of 
Adah, one of Esaus' wives, and Elon.

Since the Torah knew in such detail, these geneological 
relationships, why would anyone not believe that the Torah was indeed 
describing facts, and not "myths"????
