The warping of the truth was necessary.
Do you bother to explain algebra to your 5 year old? No? Why not? Because their mind is too simple to grasp the mechanics of such complicated
concepts. They would rather ride their tricycle than focus on things that give them headaches. It's a natural response.
The same with the Bible. They tried to explain the science in simple terms...failing that, they made up a bunch of stuff that got across the bones of
their messages, and that sufficed for the age. The unfortunate side effect was, everyone became attached to it, and no body wanted to change it to
suit the age. That would mean admitting that the first version was a lie, and then everything would go BOOM! Because mankind is a stupid species,
despite the ability to build planes and computers. We have absolutely no common sense when it comes to coexistence. And so we were forced to stick
with the old version of the Bible, otherwise we would have gone crazy and reverted to cavemen or whatever.
It was necessary...but now, we must hope we have the strength to make the transition...otherwise, we will go no further. Progress will be lost
forever. We will remain the lowly, incompetent Homo Sapiens...and we will (I hope) eventually die out.
Why would I hope for our species to die out? Because if we don't, everything else will. There will be no more natural births, only natural deaths (if
that). Everything will be man-made, man-engineered, or man-produced. There will be no such thing as nature...because our current version of progress
means we have to control everything, and controlling everything is producing or guiding it according to our standards and desires...
And if one thing is absolutely clear, it's that we don't want what's healthy for us. We never have.
