6563Re: A BOOK ABOUT LOVE
- Dec 27, 2012Hello Etznab and All,
Yes, the gospel here:
had a very warped way
of viewing women as
well. I had read, elsewhere,
that Lilith was created
in the same way as Adam
and was his equal, but
she didn't want to stay
with Adam, she was more
spiritual. Plus, Adam was
a tool, was domineering
and only wanted sex.
Thus, Lilith asked God
if she could be with
him in Heaven and this
was granted. Therefore,
Lilith was not a demon
and evil but was actually
The HBO series "True Blood"
has a different take on Lilith.
She was the first Vampire and
God's first, perfect, creation.
Too bad there wasn't someone to challenge the writers at the time of
the creation. It seems there was not, but maybe there was and they were
eliminated for having a rational mind. It's not much different today
because one can see where words were cribbed, changed around and where
myth and propaganda took its place. It sometimes happens when a person
tries to point these things out that others often react with anger.
They will try to attack you and your work. I have seen it over at
a.r.e. many times and it hasn't stopped. The message I read today was:
"I wonder why people really bother themselves about showing others the
charade in eckankar. If you really believe it is all crap but others
choose to believe in it then leave them be. [... .]"
Can anybody tell me how many men, women and children were killed in the
name of "religion" because people BELIEVED and they were left to be?
I think the problem with "beliefs" is that one can take a natural event
in history and with "belief" make a hundred, or more ficticious
versions of it. What this can do, however, is set a hundred or more
people against one another. And as they are allowed to be in their
"belief" that each of the stories is literally true they can have
children and teach them to believe as well.
As it is today there are so many cultures following so many religions
(that also interpret history and explain creation) holding people
within the yoke of so many particular "beliefs". And not all, but some
of the people who don't agree with one another will fight and die for
their beliefs ... regardless whether they know them to be true, or
where and how they even evolved.
For the record, I can't prove the credibility of Lila as described by
the sources I quoted and know that it could be as Prometheus stated; so
many mental gymnastics, whatever. At least I could mention it though,
ask for feedback and not get strung up on a cross for doing so.
I think one of the ways to arrive at truth is to offer something up to
others for critical inspection. There is a "freedom of religion" in
America which protects people's right to "believe" in whatever, but at
the same time if a person researches the evolution and creation of
religious dogma, etc., that is not the same as attacking other people,
IMO; neither is sharing the research on a public forum. It is simply
historical research and a desire to clarify fact from fiction. I
believe the latter is also a right under the U.S. constitution.
Kind of funny actually, that Adam had to try out bestiality to get
God's attention. Also, how could God be so stupid as to get it right
for the beasts, but not for Adam? Sounds like God is very human trying
to figure all of this out, and trying to explain how there could be
variations for humans in sexuality, androgynous, and even women
complaining about their preference as far as sexual positions, and then
being horribly punished for their insolence.
I needed a good laugh! So typical of religious myths to explain things
by pulling stuff out of your arse. Sorry, had to.
