The Bible Was First

It's likely the Bible was a text lifted by the Hebrews from the Hyksos, themselves having stolen it from an ancient Indo-Aryan tradition produced by a civilization we are not even aware of today. It is altogether possible that the Bible is hundreds of thousands of years old, perhaps millions of years or even older.

Nevertheless, the stories in it continue to be the sacred truth, a higher truth than Richard Dawkins has ever dreamed of in his wildest imagination. There is not a word of scripture that is not imbued with a thousand times the value of any book ever produced by a mere man in terms of it's spiritual value in the conveyance of wisdom.

In the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, we learn of the fate of all declining civilizations that are destroyed by God's wrath.

In the story of the Tower of Babel, we learn of the failures of globalism and multiculturalism as they have occurred again and again, possibly going back into the mists of antiquity.

In the story of Esau and his brother Jacob, we learn that better races of men have lost the blessing of their father not because they were unworthy but due to treachery and circumstance.

In the story of Eden, we learn that the man who blushes, the original child of God, was corrupted by having his stock polluted by the seed of serpents, the genetics of snakes.

In the story of Abel and Cain we see that the original founders of all civilization are always descended from murderers and liars.

We see that all the mistakes made by mankind are remedied by the sacrifice of the living word of God, Jesus, who died in our place in order that we could be forgiven our sins and rejoined to our father in heaven.

The funny thing about the Bible is that it is always the most relevant book you can read, no matter what era you are born in. Whatever you learn from scripture you will find will apply to your life right now more than anything some mere man can ever say or write. When you learn a lesson from the Bible, you have acquired real understanding.

Eloquently put. I can not harmonize with you on some races being better than other though. Flesh is flesh and Spirit is Spirit. The key to leaving the former in order to enter the latter is faith. That is what differentiated Abraham from all other flesh and faith in Jesus will do the same.

I like when you write about the seed of serpents though. That does have some scriptural teeth.
I think of the parable about the devil sowing his seed in the field of the Farmer. The DNA of sociopaths in high places. Fascinating stuff.

I find myself being more interested in building a vault. However I lack ingenuity for such things and I feel it is much too late in the day. I always thínk about what social, geological, and financial, shape the world will be in after the....fill in the blank happens and it seems to make me even more depressed.

I love this blog though!!!!

Tex, got an opinion on the old Edda or do you focus primarily on judeo-christian texts?

I'm still an atheist but I do believe that old religious texts contain some historical truth. Like references to forgotten civilisations and such.

As for truth; I've read the bible and found none.

@andyboots37: The problem with superiority is that it eventually leads to the abuse of those deemed inferior. Such is human nature. I still cling to the idea that we are all equal. Not because its true but because admitting the (obvious) opposite would lead us to genocide and or slavery.

@Rzero: The idea of superiority is at its inception abusive to those deemed inferior. I do not think there is a process. God seems to think all men are born in fallen state, infinitely unworthy of His glory, see Romans 3. In His grace He extends are free invitation to be called His child forever, see John 1-12.

True Christians are any better, they are just a whole lot better off. Taste and see.
