I agree that this perpetually occurring global flood is misrepresented by the story of Noah, and abused by individuals to control others who
unknowingly commit irrational behaviors that benefit people who rise in a triangular social status power structure.
The question is this- Was the story created by a small group of people who are aware of the flood that occurs in cycles due to precession of the earth
and the heating and cooling cycles responsible for ice ages and the sudden floods that occur during a warm cycle and rapid melting of the ice sheets?
Does this small group of sociopaths know that a repetitive cataclysm creates unimaginable destruction and life as the many, possibly highly evolved
smart strong people and their smaller friends, is completely destroyed leaving only a small minority of our resilient species naked in the woods with
fig leaves and all knowledge is lost.
Except for what the survivors remember, which is passed through generations by verbal history. Life must start from scratch.
Did this small multi-generational collective create disperse across the globe and create different variations of this story and call it a religion
dubbing themselves priests who call the shots and show their connection to God, and therefore the validity of their story, by having the pre-flood
knowledge of the movements of the universe?
Was the purpose of this story to play on the innate inborn fear of this flood.
A story that allows them control over the masses by creating a religion that demands absolute obedience or eternal damnation in Hell?
It would be a hoot it the means to create unquestioned belief in this scam is a symbolic allegory of very real flood is the real chance of it
happening at any freaking minute. This would obviously imprint subconscious paralyzing fear based on the fight or fight instinct. This is our most
basic reaction. We can't ignore it or we die, it is and the most powerful force in the human psyche. We have an innate biological imperative to
survive and control of that will most certainly give... I hate to say.... near unlimited power over a person's behavior.
Christians most certainly have deluded themselves into believing that an emulsion of colored fluid absorbed onto compressed cellulose, which preserves
the imprints made by the fluid... is the absolute reality that should never be questioned and their sole purpose as believers of this purely symbolic
allegory is to get others to believe this, or they spend eternity burning hell and brim stone and gnashing teeth with Beelzebub, Osama Bin Latin,
Saddam Hussein, Hitler, etc...
And if you get to this point, there is no escape. As George Carlin used to say- "We are SHOCKINGLY 'effed'".
Kind of scary if you freak out easy and can pause long enough to actually think.
What would be enough more hilarious is if a highly organized and powerful small group of hidden uber duper multi-generational families belonged to an
institution that even went so far as to have the cojones to label themselves 'mystery'.
And they used that story, crowd psychology, a whole boat freaking load of money, and very little ethics to delude innocent victims into harming fellow
human beings because either not adhering to the dogmatic rituals that accompanied belief of this fairy tale or simply not believing this cornball
symbolic representative of what a group of crazy smart and really strong people figured out before the same freaking flood destroyed the hard evidence
of their existence. And they built monuments to this event.
Wouldn't that be some really funny freaking crap if that was real.
I mean- I might get paranoid and start writing about it so that other people can wake up from the outright absurd lie.
Thank God that's not happening. (I DON'T USE EMOTICONS)
The map is not the territory, if you know what I mean.
(again the whole winky smiley nada, yada, yada...)
Words themselves are representative things by nature, and while it seems absurd that someone might believe them to be truly.... ummmm... authentic is
the best word.
Now get this. It is the best part:
Words are merely representations of reality.
Wow... My brain hurts.
I guess my point is that a shred of truth is contained within this idea of water, floods, rebirth, birth, cleansing,.
Water is the freaking shiz-nit.
It is the most precious substance of enigmatic loving; and the motion of hydraulics, the moon cycles, and thus precession create life as we know it.
All thanks to a moon that is perfectly sized and shaped to balance this wobble that operates like clockwork.
It creates the seasons, which are marked by the solstice.
The seasons maintain our planet within a temperature that is necessary for life to exist.
So I ask you.
Why not worship water, or at the very least create stories that glorify the very thing.
We should just not take the stories to be as literal as the water that is God.

Religions rightly worship this ubiquitous allegory morphed into various religions symbols because it is worthy to be worshipped.
But they forget that the words and dogmatic rituals created by man, not water, that are involved in the man-made worship of this killer stuff called
water are just symbols.
In my humble opinion, this is whathyper-realism.
(the post modern philosopher) meant by
The very thing that is found in the story of the flood and a religious spiritual cleansing with water.
It is hat which washes away so that all could become new again,
The consumption, immersion and metabolism of water.
The moon is proportioned exactly to the size of the sun as viewed from the earth. This is what create an eclipse. One, yet again, universal marker
found in the calender systems of all religions, and civilizations.
These events are of such importance to who ever the super genius group of really strong smart people were that built the bajillion megaliths found on
earth thought they were important enough to erect massive multi-ton creations that STILL EXIST.
Every time I stay outside too much, exerting myself, in the sun, while seating too cool my body from the intense heat and humidity...
I will go back under a shade tree and have a tall glass of water. Or take a dip in a pool.
Than maybe I will get out and take a bath.
And feel better.
Some folks wanna associate that with God and make up funny fairy tales they take literally (whatever that means). These fairy tales somehow make them
want to declare war on a people and behead them if they don't agree wholeheartedly and act accordingly to these ludicrous stories.
If you think about this thing God seems pretty dang irrational.
But irrational like a number. Cuz they are always the most beautiful.
