Zombie weekend

So it is Easter and single-celled organisms all around the world celebrate some voodoo practitioner that died a couple of thousands of years ago.

People with no brain activity whatsoever will get themselves spiked to one of those death symbols in wood. Others will put on some strange head-bonnets in order to bleed some while they waggle down the street.

Hundreds of millions have suffered, been plundered and died in the name of the spooky Jew that apparently also got up after death like a zombie created by the Umbrella Corporation. And this is a Jew and sect leader that hasn’t even been proven to have existed…

The last dinner arrangement

Even though I have a soft heart for someone that might be able to conjure up wine out of water, this hoax is very sad indeed. But it also has its entertaining parts. Like morons crying in front of a couple of splinters while some priest is sadomizing altar boys in the backroom or when people consume tons of chocolate in full-out gluttony while they are watching a movie that shows the ‘tragic’ death of the sect leader in question.

I have nothing against people believing in poltergeists or hocus pocus, that’s their problem. But the thing is that these duped suckers have had and still have a lot of power over people and countries. It is time to get rid of this ghost-story and to delete this “holyday” from the calendar so we can go to work.

And having spent the day reading about the Bible and how it was created I stumbled upon some new things I didn’t know.

Most I already knew from before, I did know about the church meeting in Nicosia 325 AD were some bishops voted what would be in and out of the bible. I also knew that many Gnostic texts and several pro women texts were left out, despite being very popular in their time.

In addition I also had an idea about why a bible was believed to be necessary – everyone else (Jews, Romans, Hindus etc.) seemed to have holy texts and a book filled with weirdness in order to keep the masses occupied is a good idea.

What I didn’t know was that several of the texts that made it into the bible have several different versions. So the bishops voting process 325 did not only left out the stuff that was not really to their liking, they also made a choice on which texts that had the best writings and made up the best storyline. Among other things there is an old text about Genesis were we are told the story from Eve’s perspective. A bunch of men in church cloths did not like this.

The church meeting in Nicosia also voted on if Jesus was divine or not. Before this year Jesus was not necessarily God in human form, most Christian people actually didn’t believe this. But from here on Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit was the same. Isn’t voting great?

Most of the bible is a magical story with some true names of people, cities or events. But how true is it and is it really the word of God?

Well if one believe that God influenced these bishops to make “the right decisions” you might still believe in this fiction. But there are some stories that contradict some “facts” in the bible like the forbidden story of Magdalene, the stories of Jesus childhood or the book of Enok. There are also some “facts” or “words” that change depending on the translation from one country or one bible to another. And then we have archeological and historical records that to a large degree disagree with the bible, and when it doesn’t we find that most (all) of the stories have been told before by other religions.

And in addition; the whole thing is absurd!

Do you really believe that some father figure is watching us and will condemn us for everything we do in our lives? Do you really believe in dividing the red sea or that some character could walk on water raised the dead? And do you really believe that some old men voting 1700 years ago did in fact collect the word of God? Then you are truly a very sad person that can be fooled into believing in anything.
