How sir do we know that the "ancient folklore and rewritten history" were not taken from the book itself? Passed down, passed around and changed enough to be recognizable but different in most ways?
well... common knowledge. that religious folks tend to ignore science is indeed true. But do your own research and you will find that these stories have been around 10k years before the bible was written for instance.
Everything, friend, works within a set of rules. We may not understand the rules or be aware of them all but they are there.
I am not your friend. Perhaps we could be but that word is too often misused. Your mindset pertaining rules are showing me that you are not in touch with your soul or it is blackened. Either way your statement is wrong. Love is the proof that none of your so called rules are either applicable to everything or even real.
How do you know?
Because good is not defined in rules or words. It's just a matter of opinion. Once mans achievement is now mans crime.
What is our imagination?
What purpose does it serve?
What if, what these people saw was something they could not yet explain? Would their imaginations then play a part to try and help them understand? Help them see the event in terms they could relate to?
As said 99% of the stories in these religious books are folklore or stories past from generation to generation with minor alterations to apply to the society the stories were told. Failing to see and understand that makes you ignorant and I pity you for not opening your mind and doing some research.
That is why the rules are there. To keep the evil from overtaking. And it is most definitely about missing out on things!
Open your heart as well as your mind.
You will see.
Your definition of evil is no doubt different than mine. I believe that we can agree on one thing and that is that you should not inflict something to someone else that you wouldn't want to have done to you. Call it a rule.... I call it logic. As very few people are following logic out of greed, hate or fear we can define those actions that are against ones being as evil.
In the greater perspective we (humanity) are evil in almost every step we take. If you will trace back all your actions from one day or even an hour all consequences that your life is having on millions of people, animals and plants you will find my words to be true.
That you accept this is forgivable as most of us are merely trying to get by and never understand the truth of mankind. This itself makes me more evil than most as I do see this truth, I can only stand by and let you make your decisions as you will be judged one day. Not by me but yourself so that is perhaps comforting as you seem to cover yourself in a blanket of a distorted reality.
