Re: ECKANKAR History is Typical Religious Myth
- Hi All,
This is a revisit. I find it funny that ECKists [including Klemp]
throw stones at Christians when they believe in and preach
similar myth. Look at ECKANKAR's ADOM & EDE & The Garden
of EDEn versus the Christian version with Adam & Eve & The
Garden of Eden!
Therefore, ECKANKAR is AGAINST the BELIEF and SCIENCE of
EVOLUTION as is Fundamentalist Christianity!
However, Klemp repeats a story, sent to him by an ECKist, in
his 2007 ESS Saturday night talk where the ECKist and another
person (a municipal attorney) are driving, talking, and laughing
about who Adam & Eve's children married! Who did ECKANKAR's
Adom & Ede's children marry?
Apparently, ECKists and Klemp like to have it both ways. Either
this whole Creation Story is just more Religious Myth or it's not!
Which is it for ECKANKAR? Isn't this same kind of crap the reason
why many ECKists turned their backs on their old religions?!
Actually, most ECKists have never really considered or thought
about this issue. It is just glossed over or ignored and shrugged
off as being insignificant or beyond one's consciousness and
understanding. Now that explanation sounds familar!
Yet, here Klemp is repeating and making a joke of the same
Creation Myth that Twitchell twisted and used for ECKANKAR
Dogma! Klemp is a Conman and is throwing the LIE back in the
face of the unsuspecting ECK membership. Maybe this, too, is his
joke on ECKists?
