None of the main texts of the monotheistic sects are the word of any god. They are man-made stories, often written decades or centuries after the fact, and contain a myriad of inventions and inaccuracies.
Ever wondered why the word of god of any of the 3 abrahamic faiths doesn’t mention dinosaurs, or kangaroos, or streptococcus ? Well, it’s because the goatherders who compiled those fables didn’t know jack shit about marsupials, dinosaurs or bacteria and viruses.
Here’s one of those fables, from Genesis 1 :
26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
“Dominion over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth”. That’s the word of god, as recorded in the Bible. Well, I have some questions.
Say, god, what’s with this :
You see, god, that’s Edward. He somehow didn’t get the memo about man’s dominion over the animals and ended up almost dying, with his hands amputated, from a bacterial infection.
And say, about this one :
The whole flesh-eating disease thing ? That’s how our dominion over animals was implemented ? Excuse me while I find that not convincing. Not good work at all.
Ok, you may say, meh, bacteria, that’s mean, maybe god didn’t know about them, and what he really meant was like, big animals, ones we can see :
Err, never mind that. I just looked at some shark and bear victim pics and decided not to post them….They are out there if anyone should feel adventurous. The thing is, this is one of the many examples where we can tell that the Bible is a collection of stories and fables written by men (I could also say by males), and there were no gods involved in the making of those stories. Only in the minds of the human writers and editors.
