Historical Criticism of the Bible
« on: April 25, 2017, 11:27:00 PM »
... this is a segment on text criticism, something many of us have already studied ...

Segment of a recent class at Yale ... that is up to date dealing with the non-divinity of these writings and the diversity of secular scholarly option on them.

No no no! Moses wrote the whole Bible, all the way through to Revelation!

He just wrote it under the pseudonym of JEDP... :jazzband:

so much interest in a "book" that pronounces women as inferior to men, tattoos as a sin(which actually I would agree with :)  ) shaving your beard as an abomination and a multitude of incredibly imbecilic proclamations that could ONLY come from ignorant humans, and if they did somehow come from a god, then it is indeed an incredibly imbecilic god.
A humans desire to live is exceeded only by their willingness to die for another. Even god cannot equal this magnificent sacrifice. No god has the right to judge them.-first tenant of the Panotheust

I have been around for over 6 decades too ... but I find that most apes are superior to humans.  Now if there was a scripture that proclaimed Bonobos the holy people ... I might be tempted to believe it.

I have as many decades as well...and I am confident that "superiority" is a human construct... albeit misplaced arrogance. There is nothing that suggests....in the end...humans have a better "ending" than the amoeba, the rat, the cockroach or the bonobo.... or the tree, the carrot or the sun.
