God part 2 of the greatest stuff ever written on the subject

Post by ed »

It occurs to me that the characterization of god in the bible is exactly what late iron age man would have imagined a hyper powerful despot to be like .. hosannas, singing fag angels people crawling on their belly etc etc.

I think we discussed that here. Point was/is that it was sorta a killer of an observation, at least to me.

Meanwhile, I thought of something else. Isn't the concept of a god ... A god telling?

It is nothing more than a reflection of what they knew ... despots were singular.

point is whay one? Why anything identifiable in the first place. More evidence of lack of outside influence in the formulation of the basic concept.

Carry on.

Listen buster I've flown kites on the Stone Mountain with a Jap master kite builder.
He could, no shit, within 15 strokes of a tempera brush make an image of a samaurai that would have sent the Yankees packing
