I don`t believe in myths like you do and I am not judgmental. I link my limited personal experiences with the bigger political picture, like we all should do. But no one ever taught us to think for ourselves, so we have to depend on time worn adages to shape our experiential existence.
If you believe these stories as you interpret them or were told to interpret them, then that is very harmful. It means that you use your limited experiences to explain what you think life is really about.
I read the bible from start to finish and it was one of the most boring books I have ever read. I fell asleep so often that I thought it was a cure for insomnia. Nice history lesson, if you leave out all the references to godly interference, but you have to be pretty shallow or young to believe it. That is why they get you when you`re young and a clean slate.
Just another brutal rise of another race that thinks they`re better than everyone else. It helps to justify people`s judgmental attitudes since they have the real god and he has given his children the right to judge others. Such bullcrap has led to our present problems in life. What did it do for the Jews to call themselves the chosen people:?: The treatment for them was nice wasn`t it. And don`t even go to their condemnation by god as the reason. Arrogance greed and pride are more important factors, and people don`t need no god to tell them what`s right or wrong. We have our moral compass and experiential internal lens compass that will do that.
I depend on my moral compass and lens to make my decisions- I decide what`s right or wrong, and I see the bible and man made religions as the real problem to our rising above our needs.
So as I`ve said, If one needs crutches to hold their arguments up then they should be prepared to be toppled over. Believing in myths as guides throws reality right out the window, with the tub, baby and the bathwater. It is poison to man and woman to believe this crap in the bible. A lot of angry insane old men setting the rules down for us to believe
Have we as humans accepted that this paternal world is our only choice
Are you a woman misogynist like the Adam and Eve story
That is what we are to believe if you believe the bible or any other man made religion.
Sorry, doesn`t make any sense. My research has shown me that the early stories in the bible go back way before this bible was written and the stories were stolen from other races, predating the history of the hebrews-semites. They stole the stories from people they conquered or encountered and made them their own.
It`s all fakery and charlatanism. Nothing more. Even the jesus myth was based on at least 15 other religions that had a similar birth story, including Octavius Caesar. The Hebrews have a history of stealing other peoples stories and putting them to film, sorry- biblical text!
Perhaps ypu should read this article to start to dispel the myths that have been planted in our heads. Here`s an example of the brainwashing we all go through when we are a clean state ready to be instructed as children-
The New Testament (Matthew 2:13-23) suggests Herod, King of Judea (40-4 B.C.) the Great killed all Bethlehem (Ephrath) children two years and under. It also contends that Joseph and Mary fled to Egypt as a result. The detailed Judea chronicles of the life of Herod, King of Judea (40-4 B.C.) the Great record his killing of many officials including his own wife and children but nothing of the Biblical allegations. The birth of Jesus story is known to have been added some time after 100 A.D. Some suggest the only reasonable conclusion is that (Matthew 2:13-23) is a much later Roman Catholic fabrication to counter the growing stature among the Judians of the accomplishments of Herod, King of Judea The Great (40-4 B.C.). Another more plausible alternative is that this story represents the killing of tens of thousands of children in Carthage (Tunisia) as sacrifice to their God Baal during the 4th to 2nd century B.C. It is noteworthy to remember that many of the Hebrews before Moses too as late as 570 B.C. also followed the God Baal. The God Baal demanded the sacrifice of children. The story of the child sacrifice of Isaac by Abraham was likely added to Genesis to purge the Hebrew history of their historical child sacrifice practices. Jeremiah 19:5, 7:31, Ezekiel 20:31, Micah 6:7, Leviticus 18:21, 20:2, Judges 11:30, Isaiah 57:5,9, 2Kings 16:3, 1Kings 16:34. Some Hebrews are likely following this practice even to this time period.
I have said before that one should research the times and see what was, not what one interprets today from past experiences linked to the present day without checking the anacronisms. If you don`t research it then you depend on your limited world view to dictate the substance of your existence and what you believe. That is a recipe for disaster and we don`t need confirmation of stories that are based at best in myths, to establish what one should think today. We need to grow up as a civilization and look past the manufactured lies that shape us into these hateful, angry, judgmental people we have become.
Try to read this and start getting informed. There is a whole world of real history being hidden by clever, crafty, greedy self interested charlatans out there that want to turn us against each other rather than learn to all get along. Don`t fall for their traps and snares!
It`s just too far fetched to be taken seriously. If one does, then look at the world around you and see what is really happening. Not a pretty picture for things that preach peace and love, is it
