    Default The Origin

    It's in the genes.

    The genetic code consists of four magic letters, just as MBTI consists of four magic letters.

    And each letter is encoded for murder.

    Cain killed Able.

    And the Cross is an instrument of Deicide.

    Cain didn't kill Abel. Neither one existed.

    I guess if you believe in the Bible, then yeah, the cross was used to kill Jesus. I always wondered why Christians loved the cross so much. It was used to cause incredible pain to the one they're worshipping.

    Yeah, I just ignored that part as I wasn't sure how to respond to it.

    Yes, of course.

    It is a metaphor.

    A metaphor is a comparison of relationships.

    And comparisons don't actually exist.

    If I may dare say this, you have taken a metaphor literally.

    And metaphors are not literally true.

    Any more than comparisons exist.

    What next?

    Will you be arguing how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

    And yes the christians didn't use the Cross as a symbol for a long time because it was such a humiliating death.

    But eventually the theology of the Cross was developed and the Cross became the universal symbol of christianity.

    And tragically, this theology, based on a few words in John's gospel, blamed the Jews for the death of Jesus Christ. And named them as deicides. Leading to a thousand years of pogroms and the Final Solution.

    However it is very important to remember that deicide is common to many religions.

    The death of God resonates with us, just as the bell tolls for the death of our own father and mother; and just as day dies every night; and even summer doesn't last for ever and dies in Autumn.

    And the Sun resurrects every day; and a new child is born; and Spring sprouts new every year.

    How natural to see this in our religion.

    That was the whole point. The point of worship is that he did that for us; else, we would remain in a state of condemnation. (though, of course, people don't believe that either, but there is much in life to prove the concept of "sin"!)

    If Darwin had not proposed the his theories in "The Origin of Species", someone else would've found the same thing.

    Do you not advocate free speech?

    I'm sure you could find the source if the issue matters that much to you, but I've heard he didn't want to upset his wife, as she was deeply religious.

    Did you not declare the whole entire MBTI theory and anyone remotely connected to it a cult? Are you implying that God (the creator of the genes) and his followers are a cult? Or did science discover the genes and therefore science is a cult? Or perhaps it was Satan's fault?

    Sure, Charles kept the greatest discovery in the history of the world, the origin of life, secret for 21 years because he didn't want to upset his wife?

    What a wife he must have had!

    Far more likely that he realised the import of his discovery - that it made total nonsense of the Creation Myth.

    He realised that by publishing, he was flying in the face of God. And it was God or him.
