Leptogenesis: The Mythological Confluence Of Pagan Ritualized Churchianity, Judaic Rabbinization & Apocryphal & Midrashic Islam Aligned Into A Clash Of Religious Mythologies

“If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him…” ~ Voltaire

Let me state at the outset of this discourse that I am not a Durkheimian Functionalist, either at the core or at the periphery. The understanding that “the totality of beliefs and sentiments common to the average members of a society forms a determinate system with a life of its own. It can be termed the collective or creative consciousness” (Durkheim – The Division of labour [1893]) posits that modern society is more than the sums of its parts, and although religion is at the heart of this narrative – each part of the organism, we call society, must harmonize as a composite whole to avoid the kind of crises we are seeing in the 21st century, which is at the heart of the global Papal-Interfaith-Movement. A mission doomed to failure and rightly so!

To give luminescence to this ancient quest, a cursory glance at Kathleen Herbert’s work, is this posited ideas narrative that men are still frantically looking for the “Lost ‘gods’ of the Anglo-Saxons” which parenthetically includes the modern-day English “neo-sub-mariners” who according to Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1797–1798) in his eclectic poem: “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” paints a dystopian picture of a ship manned by the pathetic souls of dead men, led by a mythical albatross. Coleridge’s penchant for melodramatization cites:

Ah! Well a-day! What evil looks

Had I from old and young!

Instead of the cross, the Albatross

About my neck was hung. (Lines 139 – 142)

Four times fifty living men,

(And I heard nor sigh nor groan)

With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,

They dropped down one by one.

The souls did from their bodies fly,—

They fled to bliss or woe!

And every soul, it passed me by,

Like the whizz of my cross-bow! (Lines 216 – 223)

Today, postmodern reLIEgion is still an “Albatross” around the necks of multi-millions, if not billions, whose sincere endeavours seek the discovery of “TRUTH”, yet like Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus, find themselves “SINCERELY WRONG”, yet well-intentioned in their pursuits of faith-based religiosity. What is so disdainful is that their supposed faith does not in any way correlate with their works, words or so-called wisdom. They argue vehemently over a storm in a teacup and can ever hardly agree to disagree on pretty much anything, without salacious human venom; mindless epithets and braggadocious drivel! Scripture rightly says: “From such turn away.”

Many may be kerfuffle by the use of the word ‘Leptogenesis’. To use this term as a point of reference in regard to this particular discourse, must be understood within the contextual ambit of how the Early Church Fathers understood this terminology – although many of these so-called illustrious men were nothing more than wolves in sheep’s clothing and sell-outs to the cause of righteousness and to cite any of them must be taken with a serious sprinkling of Celtic sea salt.

In the realm of physical cosmology, Leptogenesis is the generic term used for ‘hypothetical physical processes’ that produced an asymmetry between leptons and antileptons in the very early universe, resulting in the present-day dominance of leptons over antileptons. However, in TOV Rose’s seminal work as an author, speaker & television producer, cited in his seminal work – “The Book of Jubilees: The Little Genesis”: “(Leptogenesis), is an ancient Jewish religious work of 50 chapters, considered canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church as well as Beta Israel (Ethiopian Jews), where it is known as the ‘Book of Division’ (Ge’ez: Mets’hafe Kufale). Jubilees are considered one of the pseudepigrapha by Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox Churches…”

It was well known to Early Christians, as evidenced by the writings of Epiphanius, Justin Martyr, Origen, Diodorus of Tarsus, Isidore of Alexandria, Isidore of Seville, Eutychius of Alexandria, John Malalas, George Syncellus, and George Kedrenos. The text was also utilized by the Essenes community that originally collected the Dead Sea Scrolls. No complete Hebrew, Greek or Latin version is known to have survived…”

The Book of Jubilees claims to present “the history of the division of the days of the Law, of the events of the years, the year-weeks, and the jubilees of the world” as revealed to Moses (in addition to the Torah or “Instruction”) by Angels while he was on Mount Sinai for forty days and forty nights. The chronology given in Jubilees is based on multiples of seven; the jubilees are periods of 49 years, seven “year-weeks”, into which all of time has been divided…”

The Roman Catholic Church has had a lurid fascination with “Jubilees” but moreover, when there is a “Jubilee of Jubilees” and in this ‘supposedly’ holy weekend sees the confluence of Easter; Passover & Ramadan collide as this 33-year-old phenomenon landed upon us in this month of April 2022. We have seen on the Temple Mount clashes between Jews & Muslims where over 150 people were injured and 100’s arrested, with actually violence being perpetrated in the very mosque on the mount. These 3 Abrahamic reLIEgions (though sons of Sarah, Hagar & Keturah) – wives of the Patriarch and brothers to each other, remain in gratuitous battle-like, violent contestation for over the last 3 millennia (with no end in sight).

The confluence of pagan churchianity and its ritualization of this mythological time called Easter, Judaic rabbinization & apocryphal & midrashic Islam – all have their Leptogenesis in the symbolic origins of sun and moon worship (adoration of the starry host of heaven) that have displayed themselves in a myriad of forms since post-diluvian times – namely during the inception of the tower of Babel.

Although we think we understand the past primordial ages – in our dauntingly corrupt, postmodern age, sociological questions remain as to how religious beliefs and other factors relate to other conditions such as race, age, gender and, education. Primarily, is this notion of how religion affects social change and the effects it has on political and/or educational institutions?

Durkheim in his religious treatise looked at suicide rates amongst Protestants & Catholics. Max Weber & Karl Marx looked at religious orthodoxy as a unique role in social institutions such as politics & the economy. So while Durkheim & Weber looked at the cohesive part religion plays in a given society – Marx was more scathing in his outlook, focusing on the conflict and oppression that religion plays, as it was used as a tool for class oppression and social control that promoted stratification – (i.e.) supporting a certain hierarchy of persons to the detriment and subordination of other humans to a divine form of authority. (cf. Giddens, Anthony [1991] Introduction To Sociology. NY. W.W.Norton & Co.)

In a NYT piece entitled: “A Bleak Outlook Is Seen for Religion” expanded on in BBC Future follow-up piece aptly titled – “Tomorrow’s God: What is the future of religion?” are these words: “Sociologists argued that the march of science was leading to the “disenchantment” of society: supernatural answers to the big questions were no longer felt to be needed. Communist states like Soviet Russia and China adopted atheism as state policy and frowned on even private religious expression. In 1968, the eminent sociologist Peter Berger told the New York Times that by “the 21st Century, religious believers are likely to be found only in small sects, huddled together to resist a worldwide secular culture”… Further, “now that we’re actually in the 21st Century, Berger’s view remains an article of faith for many secularists – although Berger himself recanted in the 1990s.”

Clearly, the only thing religion hold together is the ‘house of cards’ and ‘Interfaith Dialogue’ as a medium for strengthening the religious bulwarks is not working even at the highest echelon levels of mainstream religion. The University of Cambridge held a symposium in 2011 where Jews, Christians & Muslims met around the Scriptures as a form of interfaith practice for the 21st Century but 11 years on, what is the current state of play?

The simple answer is “Division”! Why? Most want to be comforted by a “LIE”!

Let’s take a simple example from the ‘Abstract’ without leaning heavily on the ‘Full-Text’ of a piece published in 2019 entitled: Muhammad, the Jews, and the composition of the Qur’an: Sacred History & Counter-History, by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion which states categorically: “According to Islamic religious teachings, some Jews confirmed the authenticity of Muhammad’s prophethood and joined him. Most Jews, however, are condemned for both rejecting the Prophet and failing to live up to their own religious imperatives. Medieval polemics tended to be harsh and belligerent, but while Muslims and Christians produced polemics under the protection and encouragement of their own religious and political authorities, Jews lived everywhere as minority communities and therefore lacked such protection. In order to maintain their own sense of dignity Jews polemicized as well, but they had to be subtle in argument. One form of polemic produced by Jews and other subalterns is “counter-history,” which retells well-known narratives in a manner that questions or undermines their message. One such counter-history is an ancient Jewish re-telling of the traditional Muslim narrative of divine revelation.

In an earlier citation, by Professor Walter Veith, he lay down a serious unimpeachable argument that Islam & the Rabbinization of Judaism will always be in competition, and although they may both be bent out of all shape and proportion, over the validity of Muhammad’s cave revelations, and the fact that Quranic revisions of the Torah may never be divine light – at the heart of the issue is that solitary word: “INSPIRATION”!

Judaism & Christianity on the other hand, remain at a fork in the road, when it comes to the issue of the historical “YESHUA” AKA “JESUS” (the Incarnation of the Divine Son of God) – the 2nd Person of the Godhead (the Eternal Majesty & Mystery of the “Glorious TRINITY”). The ‘deep differences’ between these 2 religions cannot be easily abridged, given the fact that most Jews will never accept even the historical Jesus, far less worship Him as Messias. Moreover, Rabbinic traditions is no different today as it was when Christ walked the earth almost 2000 years ago, doing all manner of great and mighty works, but was railed on as a deceiver (to the point of being called a son of the Devil)!

There are voices however that believe that there can be convergence between religions beyond inter-faith dialogue – where harmony and even echoes exist within the writings of religious script. These voices are few and far between and with Passover, Easter, and Ramadan falling so synchronistically close – all the goodwill in the world will not be able to negate the gulf that exist between them.

In conclusion, the historical reverberations over the issue as to when to “keep The Passover became known as the Quartodeciman Controversy”. Quartodeciman is a Latin word meaning “14th.” It states that “in the New Testament, we learn that Jesus kept the Passover on the 14th of Nissan. He taught the disciples to remember His suffering and death on this day. This instruction was followed by the early disciples (see Acts 20:6, I Cor. 5:6-8, I Cor. 11:17-32 for some examples). Remembering the death of Jesus on Passover was of major importance to early Christians. In the mid-second century, a movement started out of Rome to stop practicing Passover; they also tried to establish a new celebration. Believe it or not, this subject had an impact on the weekly Sabbath!”

The Quartodeciman Controversy was part of the movement by the Church of Rome to abandon any practices considered ‘Jewish.’ Their actions were contrary to those taught by the first Apostles. Moreover, this controversy was eventually used to push the idea of weekly fasting on Friday and Sunday gatherings.”

The controversy concerning Passover would last for centuries into the future and be discussed at church councils such as Nicaea (325), Antioch (341), Laodicea (364), and Constantinople (381). The groups who persisted in the observance of Passover were deemed heretical because they did not comply with the Roman Catholic Church. Eventually, Roman Law would codify penalties against those who practiced Passover like Jesus (see CT: 16.5.9 [382] and CJ: 1.5.5 [428]). In fact, all groups deemed heretical had severe laws enacted against them (see The Theodosian Code, Book 16, Title 5 for over 60 laws against groups deemed heretical).”

Daniel (the prophet), in chapter 7 verse 25, warned that the “Little Horn” power (which is the Roman Catholic Vicegerency (POPERY) would seek to change “TIMES” & “LAWS” and from 538 AD until today, that has been its ethos and motto. This nefarious pagan institution has supplanted the Apostolic Doctrine for “RITUALIZATION” & Leptogenesis on a Biblical scale as the world grinds precariously on its axis. Now all that’s left is a “Shattered Paradise” & “The Undead Intellect” from which “The Creator God” hope to salvage a “Remnant”…

    How you have managed to attract the attention of not one, but multiple genuine intellectuals such as Pacha and Terence CANNOT be dismissed as happenstance.
    As you know, Bushie is just an adopted brass bowl who has been HANDED blessings (in ways yet to be even even fully appreciated by the bushman).This includes a special connection to The Godfather and access to info…. 🙂 – just a lucky BB.
    But these fellows have, using their intellect and common sense, been able to discern levels of understanding that defies current reality.
    Indeed, Pacha’s only serious Achilles heel has been in allowing his emotional reaction to the global religious idiocy that has been so well articulated above by Terence to drive him to illogical conclusions about God and the Bible.
    Terence, on the other hand, appears to think that wisdom can be intellectualized with academic research and references. It CANNOT.

    Two great scholars, but like Achilles, both with areas of vulnerabilities.

    In SIMPLE terms, what is currently at play is the final stages of a SPIRITUAL battle between right & wrong; Love & hate; good & evil.

    The actual OBJECTIVE of the whole exercise has been to CREATE a crop of beings who have been able to demonstrate the capacity to CHOOSE good over evil, love over hate and right over wrong. Bushie refers to such outputs as ‘Diamonds’.
    To create diamonds from deadwood (or brass bowls) requires extensive heat, pressure and time… The process therefore NEEDS TO HAVE HEAT, PRESSURE AND STRESS.
    But the final diamond product is WELL WORTH the stress and efforts…

    Efforts therefore to ‘put this shiite world right’ or to eliminate global brass bowlery (the heat and pressures being applied in diamond creation) are seriously misguided.
    The REAL challenge is to understand life’s MISSION, and to respond appropriately to the heat and pressures by becoming a Diamond…..

    As you know BU has been a haven from inception for the intelligent and the ignorant. A reflection of the global society. TB’s piece like the video Pacha posted of Dr. Cornel West is steeped with flowery language but encapsulates what many ordinary commenters have also posted to the blog over the years. The human condition being what it is from time immemorial will never coalesce around a common objective. The zealots and those willing to parley will always ensure conflict is alive and well. The human condition, don’t forget.

  • we talk about connecting to the Universe—but what exactly does that mean? What is this “Universe” we keep talking about? A simple explanation of the Universe is this: The Universe is everything that we can experience through our five physical senses (seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, and tasting), and everything that we cannot physically experience, the spiritual and metaphysical aspects of life. The Universe is the source from which we come, where we exist now, and to which we will eventually return.

    simplicity is the key to connecting deeply with the Universe begin every qigong practice by saying the password

    NOW NONE OF THESE GUYS ARE BAJANS OR INTELLECTUALS ……..CAUSE YOU CANT POSSIBLY BE A BELIEVER IN THE BIBLE AND BE AN INTELLECTUAL

    ALSO ONLY FOLK WITH AFRICAN ANCESTORS HAVE INTELLECT

    Daniel 7:25 SAYS ‘He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.

    Will speak: Da 7:8,20 11:36,37 Isa 37:23 2Th 2:4 Rev 13:5,6,11
    Wear down: Rev 6:9,10 11:7-10 13:7-10 14:12 16:6 17:6 18:24
    Intend: Da 2:21 11:31,36, 37, 38 12:11 2Th 2:4 1Ti 4:1, 2, 3 Rev 13:15, 16, 17
    time: Da 4:25,32 12:7,11,12 Rev 11:2,3 12:6,14 13:5,7

    He will speak out against the Most High (compare Da 7:8-note , Da 7:20-note , Da 11:36,37-note) – Somewhat paradoxically, the LITTLE Horn (the Antichrist 1Jn 2:18, 22-note, 1Jn 4:3-note) is characterized by “BIG”, boastful, blasphemous words (cp 2Th 2:4, Rev 13:5-note, Rev 13:6-note). Most High corresponds to the Hebrew title for God of El Elyon (Most High God – Sovereign Over All).

    Wear down (Aramaic – bela) – The Septuagint (LXX) translates the Aramaic with the Greek word katatribo which it literally to rub down or away and hence wear out and exhaust. The Theodotion version of the Greek rendering of Da 7:25 uses palaioo meaning to make old or antiquated and thus to wear out by time and use.

    This verse is the only use in Scripture of the Aramaic verb bela which means wear away or wear out as friction wears our clothes or sandals. The related Hebrew verb is balah and its cognate is found in an ancient Ugaritic text rendered “The oxen are worn out” or unfit for plowing. The Hebrew verb balah literally described the Israelites’ garments which did not wear out in the wilderness (Dt 8:4; 29:4; Neh 9:21, contrast Josh 9:13). David used balah figuratively in Psalm 32 confessing that…

    When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long. (Ps 32:3-note) (We dare not “glide” by this passage while we are here. Beloved, let us heed David’s “warning” regarding the effect of unconfessed, undisclosed sin [not brought to the light of 1Jn 1:7, 9] to warp and rot our soul and cause spiritual “erosion” and “decay” in our hearts [cf Pr 4:23-note]. Praise God for the mercy filled gift of confession and repentance. Ps 32:5-note, cf David’s brokenness over his sin against God when he committed adultery with Bathsheba and then the murder of Uriah – Ps 51:1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 13, 17-note)

    The Revelation amplifies the meaning of wear down the saints the apostle John recording that…

    It was also given to him (the “Beast [see in depth description]” to whom “the dragon gave” him his power = Rev 13:2-note, Rev 13:4-note) to make war with the saints and to overcome (nikao – conquer) them, and authority (exousia) over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him (equates with Antichrist’s right and the might to exercise worldwide rulership). (Rev 13:7-note)

    He will intend to make alterations in times and in law – The exact meaning of this phrase is not certain as illustrated by the following comments from several very conservative (literal approach) expositors.
    That said, I will offer the following “postulate” for your judicious consideration (Be a Berean – Acts 17:11-note): In Da 9:27-note we note that the Antichrist puts an end to sacrifices and grain offerings and commits the “abomination of desolation” which Jesus declared (Mt 24:15-note) would mark the beginning of the Great Tribulation, the last 3.5 year period, referred to as the “time of Jacob’s distress” (Jer 30:7-note). This seminal event in Israel’s history is in a sense associated with the Antichrist’s making “alterations in… law” when he put an end to the Temple sacrifices (which [during the Daniel’s Seventieth Week] the Jews had reinstituted most likely using the guidelines of the laws of Leviticus).

    John Walvoord – He (Ed: Little Horn, Antichrist) will also attempt to “change times and laws,” that is, to change times of religious observances and religious traditions such as characterize those who worship God.

    Donald Campbell – He will attempt to change moral and natural laws of the universe, apparently without success. An example of this may be seen in the attempt made by the leaders of the French Revolution to replace the seven-day week established by God with a ten-day week. Their efforts failed. (Daniel: God’s Man in a Secular Society)

    Gleason Archer – This dictator will impose a new legal system on all his subjects, doubtless based on totalitarian principles in which the service of the government or the state will be substituted for the absolute standards of God’s moral law. All dissent or opposition to the decisions and policies of the little horn will be adjudged treasonable and punishable by death. His program will include a revision of the calendar; this seems to be implied by “to change the set times” (zimnin , lengths or periods of time). (Gaebelein, F, Editor: Expositor’s Bible Commentary)

    Ray Pritchard – No one really knows what this means. Will it involve somehow adjusting the time schedule so that we no longer have a 24-hour day? Will he invoke a five-day week? Or a 15-month year? Changing the laws indicates that he will attack the moral foundations of society. When the antichrist comes to power, wrong will become right and right will become wrong. Moral values will be inverted as he makes his final mad bid for world domination. (Animal Parade)

    Whitcomb suggests that “The “law” he will intend to change will probably be the law of God. One law of God is that “the soul who sins will die” (Ezek. 18:4, 20; Ro 6:23). The Antichrist, speaking for the “father of lies,” will seek to reverse this foundational law of the moral and spiritual universe, just as Satan said to Eve: “You surely shall not die!” (Gen. 3:4). (Whitcomb, J: Daniel- Everyman’s Bible Commentary)

    Given into his hand – Hand as so often in Scripture and in this context signifies power, so that the Little Horn exerts power over the saints. The Lxx translates this with the verb paradidomi (word study) which conveys the basic meaning of to give over from one’s hand to someone or something, especially to give over to the power of another.

    Interpreters that do not hold to a futuristic fulfillment are forced to concoct other entities they think might represent the Little Horn. For example, the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge sees the little horn as papal writing…

    In assuming infallibility, professing to forgive sins, and to open and shut heaven, thundering out bulls and anathemas, excommunicating princes, absolving subjects from their allegiance, and exacting obedience to his decrees in open violation of reason and Scripture. (Note: I totally disagree with this genre of imaginative interpretation of the little horn which literally is an individual not an institution.)

    TIME, TIMES, HALF A TIME

    Time, times, and half a time (time is the Aramaic noun ‘iddan – see note below) – Do not miss the important point that the sovereign God sets a time limit on the Little Horn’s power over the saints!

    Most conservative commentators (and even many liberals) agree that this time phrase equates with 3.5 years (Time = 1, times = 2, half a time = 0.5 totaling 3.5). But how can one be confident this is “years” and not months or some other unit of time measurement? Remember that the best commentary on Scripture is Scripture. With that in mind as one studies the Revelation there is a repeated time phrase (sometimes in days and sometimes in months) related to the last 7 year period known as Daniel’s Seventieth Week. Furthermore in Revelation 12:14 we observe the phrase “time and times and half a time” which corresponds to the same time period in Rev 12:6 described as lasting “one thousand two hundred and sixty days”, both these times equating with 3.5 years (42 months) and both occurring in the last 3.5 years of the 7 years (Daniel’s Seventieth Week). During this 3.5 year period (which Jesus referred to as the great tribulation) Israel will be persecuted and this fact correlates well with the phrase given into his hands. (cp parallel time in Rev 11:2-note). When these events are studied (in context) it becomes clear that Daniel and John are describing the same event and specifying the same duration of this event as “time and times and half a time” or 3.5 years. There has been no obvious, specific historical fulfillment of this event, which awaits a future fulfillment at the time of the 10 king stage of the fourth Gentile kingdom out of which arises a world ruler who subdues 3 of the 10 kings and overpowers the saints of the Highest One.

    Time – Aramaic word = ‘iddan which indicates (1) a span or period of time or (2) in some contexts means a point in time. It is translated in the Septuagint with the Greek word kairos (see word study) not chronos.

    ‘Iddan – 13x in 11v all in Daniel – study passages for the various nuances of meaning – Dan 2:8, 9, 21; 3:5, 15; 4:16, 23, 25, 32; 7:12, 25.

    See related discussion of this Aramaic noun ‘Iddan in the phrase “seven periods of time” in Daniel 4:16.

    Whitcomb – This theme of the sufferings of Israelite believers during their future time of Great Tribulation is introduced here (and Da 7:21) in the book of Daniel for the first time, though it will be emphasized increas­ingly toward the end of the book (Da 8:24; 9:26; Da 11:32, 33, 34, 35; Da 12:10). Moses had predicted this in general terms (Lev 26:17, 19, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 ; Deut. 28). Isaiah had spoken about it as a great purging time (Isa 4:3, 4), and Jeremiah as “the time of Jacob’s distress” (Jer 30:7-note). See also Ezekiel 20:1-49, Zechariah 12:1-14, and Malachi 3:1, 2, 3, 4. So devastating will be that final phase of “the day of man” that two-thirds of the nation of Israel will die and, “I will bring the third part through the fire” (Zech. 13:9; cf. Isa. 6:13). Israel’s Messiah assured her that “then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall” (Matt. 24:21). In fact, unless those days are “cut short,” none will survive at all, “but for the sake of the elect those days shall be cut short” (Matt 24:22).

    Notice that the “beast” of Rev 13:1 which has 10 horns like the 4th Beast of Daniel 7:7 merges in Rev 13:4 into a beast who is worshiped. In other words the final ruler who is later definitely identified as a “beast” (Rev 13:12, 14, 15, 17, 18) is so closely associated with the Fourth Beastly Kingdom that they are discussed as if they are intimately related (See discussion of term “Beast”). Comparing the descriptions in Daniel and Revelation, one can draw the conclusion that the Little Horn of Daniel 7 is the Beastly Individual of Revelation 13, both describing the final ruler of the final stage of the final Gentile power.

    Tony Garland goes in greater detail (Comments on Revelation 13:1) explaining that…

    the symbolism of the revelation given to both Daniel and John concerning this time of the end often blurs the distinction between an individual and the government which he leads:

    There can be no kingdom without a king, and no empire without an emperor; neither can there be a king in fact without a kingdom. We cannot consistently speak of imperial power and dominion apart from a personal head which represents and embodies that power. (J. A. Seiss, The Apocalypse: Lectures on the Book of Revelation) (The Apocalypse – Online Google Book – this quote is found on page 393)

    It is very clear from what follows in Rev. 13 that there is something more than the Empire here in view. In Rev. 13:3-8 it is a person that is before us. We are satisfied that this same person is also described, symbolically, in the opening verses. As is frequently the case in the prophetic scriptures, the king and his kingdom are here inseparably united. Rev. 13:1+, 2+ portrays both the Empire and its last Emperor. (The Antichrist by A. W. Pink)

    Is the beast out of the sea a man or an empire? The answer is both. (a) The beast is a man because his number is that of a man (Rev 13:18). Also the use of the masculine pronoun [auton] (Rev 13:8) to refer to the neuter [therion] (Rev 13:1, 2, 4) indicates that he is a human being. In addition, parallels between the beast and the Lamb indicate that he is a person: both have followers on whose foreheads are inscribed their names (Rev 13:16, 17; 14:1), both are conquerors (Rev 5:5; Rev 13:7), and both receive worship (Rev 5:8; Rev 13:4). (b) At the same time the beast is an empire over which the man reigns.

    This fact is demonstrated by the symbolism of the beasts of Daniel 7. (The Beast from the Sea in Revelation 13 by Daniel K. K. Wong – Bibliotheca Sacra, Volume 160, no 639, July-Sept 2003).

    So that we could have a second chance God raised Jesus from the grave.

    We often take ourselves much too seriously…. considering that we are all just clumps of everyday organic elements that somehow manage to ‘exist’ for about 70 years or so.

    The ONLY evidence that is required as a basic starting point, being all around us, should be too obvious to someone like you for Bushie to need to point out, however, the second Law of Thermodynamics is illuminating.
    It basically says that AS A RULE, All things tend to gravitate towards a state of chaos, UNLESS this is reversed by EXTERNAL INTELLIGENT intervention. This (Like the other Laws of Science) has been observed to be consistently true and irrevocable so, throughout all history.

    Obviously then, IF THIS LAW IS CONSISTENT, some form of Intelligent external energy intervention would have been required to have INITIALLY established ‘Life on Earth’ as the intricate, finely balanced exercise in dynamic equilibrium that it has been now for many many millennia… by whatever means that ‘intelligence would have used’.

    If you could agree with this as a fundamental starting point, without ANY reference to Bible, Church, God, or BBs, then Bushie would ask no more…..for a debate.
    On the other hand, if you would wish to suggest that this MAJESTIC world which we brass bowls have been trying diligently to destroy with our greed, is nothing but a statistical accident of chance, then we can agree to part ways amicably. 🙂

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    No disagreement from this end so far….
    And BTW, any presumption that Bushie assumes that “only Earth is so endowed” is premature, and in fact erroneous.

    The ONLY stipulation so far is that it logically required (somehow, and from somewhere,) a “significant level of intelligence” to have initiated the complex systems that drive life on Earth…. and anywhere else for that matter.

    We (and this includes those of your intellectual ilk) are yet to understand even the BASIC ATOM, far less the REALLY complex systems inherent in the everyday processes all around us. It cannot therefore be unreasonable to accept that some form of intelligence that exceeds our best (whatever form that may have been) – had to have engineered the process…. unless, of course, ALL of the Laws of Nature were subsequently reversed.

    So ground rule number 1;
    There exists somewhere an original Big Boss Engineer…. or Creator, existing in yet to be agreed form.

    Daily, regular folk are called upon to make judgments on the pronouncements of so-called experts.

    I have heard great wisdom coming from the “unlikeliest” of places.

    If some of these puffed up poppets ever wielded power, they would be dictators, the very thing they rail against! But they would convince themselves that it is all for the best. They would not listen to the average man because, in their opinion, he would have nothing of value to say.

    ‘Ancient African philosophy’ is the original wisdom of mankind. It is obvious that they would have understood that there must be a ‘Creator’.
    Even modern day brass bowls are forced to accept this reality. The alternative option is to suggest that unimaginable complexity and order (much of which is mutually interdependent, and cannot exists independently), is the result of an accident of chance.

    LOL so, for example, the human eye just ‘formed itself’ over billions of years of lucky mutations, ..while the blind BBs fumbled about among the dinosaurs….
    We now know too much to ignore what the Ancients took as a given….even when we try to act otherwise.

    Ok so if we agree that there is an intelligent force somewhere that decided to launch this project ‘Life on Earth’, can we assume that there is a SENSIBLE objective being undertaken?

    This is what Bushie would like to explore – and to demonstrate that this objective is so mind-blowing and so off-the-charts, that deliberate steps HAD to be taken to ensure that this knowledge-TREASURE would not be treated in the same manner as the traditional treasures with which humanity has been blessed (ie ending up with 1% of the brass bowls hoarding 95% for themselves and the remainder 99% scrunting..).

    You are one unreasonable and inpatient intellectual though…

    Here is the key point that brings us to 2022…

    If this ‘Creator’ can exercise the intellectual capacity, and the quality of technology to create all that bio-engineering (for example that GP is so ‘gung ho’ about,) and the wonders of Nature in general, what then is the purpose of this ‘Project Life on Earth?”
    Why did THEY not get to the END point and skip all this earthly chaos…? (That is rhetorical – not yet another question posed… 🙂 )

    There happens to be a specific quality that CANNOT be ‘created’. It has to be specially DEVELOPED and NURTURED. Fortunately (or Unfortunately) for mankind, the Creator decided to invest in the development and nourishment of that specific quality…. and project ‘Life on Earth’ is required for the exercise.

    That ‘un-creatable’ quality is called RIGHTEOUS CHARACTER. It is the natural inclination and propensity to do what is “right, just and loving”, to the very point of death itself. In order to achieve this, an environment of various combinations of stresses and strains; of good and evil; of highs and lows; and of love and hate is a specific requirement. Our Earth (and even more so now in 2022) represents the most PERFECT environment conceivable to facilitate such a needed crucible (thanks for that concept David 🙂 )

    The Creator’s plan is therefore, AS WE SPEAK, being executed with absolute PERFECTION, and exactly as conceptualized, to produce the intended result.

    With that background, it becomes very clear now, why we have had all the nonsense that we see with the misguided churches, the Bible, and PARTICULARLY with the ‘official’ churches such as the Catholics, and why Terence’s piece is but the tip of the iceberg of religious leptogenesis (whatever the Hell THAT really means… LOL ha ha )

  • No Bushie, we have no abiding desire to know why life evolved or was created or both in any of the universes. Never recognized anything particularly special about the humanoid, compared to the Kemetic dung beetle for example.

    Unreasonable yes. Inpatient yes! But you need to put some meat on our plate and stop beating around the proverbial bush, pun intended. 😄

    You talked about “righteous character”. How do you know this? Does this have anything to do with the ancients? For the ancient people of Afrikan had already perfected such 20,000 years ago. They called it Ma’at.

    What of these mysteries you posit when we’ve had them before.

    We accept unreservedly that there is no end to corruption anywhere. That nobody will intervene in our stead and that we will destroy ourselves and corruption with us.

    Put some meat on muh plate!

    The 42 laws of Maat from the Papyrus of Ani

    I have not committed sin.
    I have not committed robbery with violence.
    I have not stolen.
    I have not slain anybody.
    I have not stolen grain.
    I have not purloined offerings.
    I have not stolen the property of the gods and goddesses.
    I have not uttered lies.
    I have not carried away food.
    I have not uttered curses.
    I have not committed adultery.
    I have made none to weep.
    I have not eaten the heart (i.e., I have not grieved uselessly, or felt remorse).
    I have not attacked anybody.
    I am not a person of deceit.
    I have not stolen cultivated land.
    I have not been an eavesdropper.
    I have slandered nobody.
    I have not been angry without just cause.
    I have not debauched the wife of anybody.
    I have not debauched the wife of anybody (repeats the previous affirmation but addressed to a different god).
    I have not polluted myself.
    I have terrorized none.
    I have not transgressed the Law.
    I have not been wroth.
    I have not shut my ears to the words of truth.
    I have not blasphemed.
    I am not a person of violence.
    I am not a stirrer up of strife (or a disturber of the peace).
    I have not acted (or judged) with undue haste.
    I have not pried into matters.
    I have not multiplied my words in speaking.
    I have wronged none, I have done no evil.
    I have not worked witchcraft against the King or Queen (or blasphemed against them).
    I have never stopped the flow of water.
    I have never raised my voice (spoken arrogantly, or in anger).
    I have not cursed or blasphemed the gods and goddesses.
    I have not acted with evil rage.
    I have not stolen the bread of the gods and goddesses.
    I have not carried away the khenfu cakes from the spirits of the dead.
    I have not snatched away the bread of the child, nor treated with contempt the god or goddess of my city.
    I have not slain the cattle belonging to the god and goddess.

    The Assessors of Maat are the 42 deities listed in the Papyrus of Nebseni, to whom the deceased make the 42 Negative Confession in the Papyrus of Ani. They represent the 42 united nomes of Kemet, and are called “the hidden Maati gods and goddesses, who feed upon Maat during the years of their lives;” i.e., they are the righteous minor deities who deserve offerings. As the deceased follows the set formula of Negative Confessions, he* or she* addresses each god or goddess directly and mentions the nome of which the god is a patron, in order to emphasize the unity of the nomes of Kemet.

    One way to liberate yourself and for Africa to self liberate is to restore maatic thinking. Maat is not only the law that balances and harmonizes a society, Maat protects it. More justice, more peace!
    

    “From the perspective of the traditional African approach to life, Maat can described as the key idea which recurs in most African societies as the influence of right and righteousness, justice and harmony, balance, respect, and human dignity. A way of life practiced everywhere on the continent, long before capitalism, colonialism, and neocolonial activities came to tangle the world.“

    I SEE YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT RIGHTEOUSNESS

    HERE IS A LIKKLE OUTLINE TO HELP YOU FROM ROMANS
    The first eight chapters of Romans is said to be DOCTRINAL 1-8 –
    They tell us what we need to KNOW.
    The final five chapters are DEVOTIONAL 12-16 –Practical. -They tell us what we need to DO.
    In the first eight chapters we learned that righteousness is
    required by our holy God,
    revealed in Christ,
    received by faith in Christ, and
    realized in the life by the power of the Holy Spirit.

    “The righteousness of God is the major theme of Romans.
    We would agree that the term “righteousness” covers all that is necessary to reinstate a sinner as right with God, and therefore includes his position, his character, his privileges, and his prospects.
    It embraces the past, present, and future, and it means “the state of being right.”
    On this basis we can reasonably outline the epistle thus:
    (a) Righteousness needed by sinful men (Rom 1:17–3:20)
    (b) Righteousness provided by God (Rom 3:21-26)
    (c) Righteousness received through faith (Rom 3:27–4:25)
    (d) Righteousness experienced in the soul (Rom 5:1–8:17)
    (e) Righteousness guaranteed as permanent blessing (Rom 8:18-39)
    (f) Righteousness rejected by the Jewish nation (Rom 9–11)
    (g) Righteousness manifested in practical life (Rom 12–16)

    ~~~~~~~~~~
    Even the dull among us have now reached that point of understanding, so no surprise on your part.

    Despite this however, Bushie is unconvinced of your readiness for the REAL meat to be dumped on your plate.
    This is because in fact, it was ALWAYS intended that project “Life on Earth” would end, and that the successful OUTPUTS from that experience would advance to the REAL intended challenge.
    Your preoccupation with the unfairness that is endemic in this crucible we live in, suggests that your focus is limited to the project itself – rather than on the REASON for the project.

    As you correctly say, PROJECT-WISE, there is indeed nothing particularly special about the humanoid vs the dung beetle, we both live miserably short lives, and then we die.
    In terms of EXTRA PROJECT POTENTIALITY however, nothing can be further from the truth.

    The REAL meat is actually the fact that project ‘Life on Earth’ is, in reality, a key part of the process of reproduction of the original ‘Creators’ of life on this planet.
    (note that by DEFINITION, all natural living organisms reproduce. The process by which the ORIGINATOR of life itself reproduces themselves has to be the ultimate ‘meat’.)

    righteousness is intuitive like all spiritual and universal laws

    The righteousness of God is so all pervasive and extensive that it is possible to discuss it from any possible perspective. It is endemic in the very nature around us. Bushie is just as comfortable with the Romans perspective as with the agnostic perspective or even the official church’s dogma.

  • Those following Bodily religions are celebrating holidays of Passover and Easter.
    These religions that have an origin in time and space also have an end in time and space, not eternal religions, anbd this their understanding of time is limited. But they represent in their mythologies events which are to come and understood to be the destiny of that world which is trapped in consciousness identified with bodies and whose idea of God must therefore be distorted by that false perspective, that the religion itself can not succeed in liberating it’s followers from, but they prophesy a liberation. The prophesy it in the form of a presentation of a historical event, that did not occur, but that must occur
