I have heard this term very often while growing up and also often in various discussions (even News programs) and I'm wondering what other people
really think this means and if it means something different to different people, or if it is pretty cut and dry as to what is meant by this.
What really got me thinking about this years ago was when I was working in IT and I would have to create a "master image" of a computer system and
then that image would be copied over to each piece of hardware (laptop, desktop, etc). When making the original master image, I would have to make
all the universal customized settings except for something like the computer name - that would be done after the install, because it allowed the staff
to tell the identical machines apart (and give them different privileges, like some were in the accounting group, or R&D, or manufacturing). Oddly
enough the common term is "using the master image", which if we were to transpose this to people, that master image would be God's image. So if this
is true, that people are built in one image, God's, then everyone starts off basically identical with the exception of sex - and this also happens in
IT, but it may be related to the unique peripherals the computer uses (printers, mouse, keyboard, etc) - those are individually installed.
Now as far as the sexes, I suspect that there is something like magnetism where one sex is "positive" and the other "negative" (and those can be
relative to the person what is considered + or -). But each sex, determined by XX, XY will determine their pull of the opposite XX/XY, and a "push"
of like XX/XY, so they are supposed to be biologically attracted to the opposite, just like a magnet, and repulsed (sexually for the most part, even
possibly in other aspects) by people of the same sex - again just like magnets.
Now once you are born, you are "perfect" in "his image", then you get your name and family and from there you are exposed to worldly influences, some
good, some evil, some that God specifically forbids and others that he tries to encourage.
In all Abrahamic religions, "God" forbids marking the body (tattoo's) and many believe piercings (there is debate in some sects, but old school
followers use clip on earrings and NO piercings). Some people will even fight like all heck when EMT/docs/nurses request to take blood or give a
shot, because it defiles the body and is "against God's law".
Just like a computer, that might have started off with a pristine install from the master image, it can become so corrupt with viruses, malware,
damaged operating system (think mental illness as a comparison), hardware problems, etc. This is all due to poor choices of the user or by someone
else "attacking" the system externally (like a hacker - think of these as demons in human terms).
When I listen to people talk about homosexuality, it is clear in all Abrahamic texts that it is strictly forbidden (if the original sources are used,
not "new age - feel good re-interpretations") and I have always wondered if it is something people are born with, or if it is a result of something in
someone's life (physical, psychological, spiritual attack - demon like - the hacker example), possibly happening at an age when the person would just
not ever be able to remember (think less than year old, maybe by 2 years old). There is a lot of cases of ritualistic abuse of very young children
(from infants to 2yrs old - to just START the process - it often continues for a lifetime). These issues are suppressed and the person suffering may
not even know they happened, so to them the would honestly think they were "born this way". Maybe whatever is done creates such a dissonance w/n the
person that they turn their back on their natural programming (possibly b/c they feel neglected, unprotected, unloved by God, etc) so they pursue a
life that has been considered an abomination for millennia.
I know people who if they even look at certain foods on TV they will gag or even throw up (cream of wheat has done that to some people) b/c of their
very early life experiences (1yr to 2yr old). Maybe there was "something" mixed in with it that the child KNEW was bad, and their subconscious
remembers this, the taste, etc later on in life, and they have this reaction. I think this very same thing could translate to sexuality but I don't
know how, what the triggers would be, and I dont' even want that discussed in this thread - if you do, keep it general b/c I don't want any ideas to
be put out there.
So my hypothesis is that much of the abnormal likes/dislikes are the product of nurture while the more healthy behaviors are a product of nature, as
they were programmed in "God's image". These learned abnormalities may not even seem that unnatural b/c so many others do this, and that is b/c
people are falling away from God and what he designed for us, IMHO. IDK if this is exactly the way it is or how it works, but I feel that these
arguments support what I am saying and it is more difficult for people who have "non-normal" (by percentage of population) behavior to support their
actions as natural or normal, b/c by definition, they are not.
On another note, I think the media plays a HUGE role in re-enforcing any of the early childhood trauma that may promote homosexuality or hyper
sexuality (straight/gay or bi) as well as promoting defiling of the body with tattoos and piercings among so many other things. I think the saying
that "Satan" runs Hollywood is a valid point, even if only as an abstract idea, due to what they promote and push on their shows, movies, music, etc.
What do you all think. Does my explanation make sense at all? Can anyone argue against my points so we can have a healthy discussion?
If I offended anyone in this post, it was not my intention at all, I vtried to handle the topics as carefully as possible, but there is only so much
that can be tip-toed around if you really want to get to the heart of the matter.
