Niietzche's reference was intended to meen that God was dead to us- same thing as Gods dead
God is dead-nietzsche ; Nietzsche is dead-GOD!!
By heliolithic culture I am refering to the culture that arose during the new stone age. A prime example was the Egyptian culture in which stone tools were used and stone megaliths were constructed. They, of course, were sun worshippers. Jewish culture arose from the Egyptians, Moses was Egyptian and his people, the Jews were captives of the Egyptians so the Jewish culture was based on the Egyptian culture, even though they didn't worship the Sun as such. Other traits of this culture include the formation of tribal groups, the idea that inheritance is through the female and not the male, the imporance of the family and so forth. These are characteristics retained by the Jewish people to this day.
Don't you think if they were so into the Egyptian system, they would have stayed ? So, you believe they were slaves there, but don't believe they left because they felt mistreated ? You must think people enjoy having their sons fed to the crocodiles, leaving their daughters to be picked through by the Egyptian men, when the time would arise, was somehow admirable and should pattern their own society after them... ?
Puzzling ideas you have...
I have never said the Jews liked being slaves. What I said was that they may have derived their culture from the Egyptians. Just as black people here in the US hated being slaves because they were so terribly mistreated but when they were freed they adapted the ways of the white man only because that is the culture that they were raised in. And the old testament does mention the coming of the messiah. The thing that I don't understand is that the Jews read and believe in so many books why do they not also read and believe in the New Testament? As for leprechauns, ghosts and the tooth fairy, who is to say, maybe they really do exist. Scientists now tell us there are many more dimensions than those we already know about. Maybe these dimensions are inhabited by beings that we call ghosties and ghoulies and these beings cross over into our world from time to time.
That is the culture black america was stuck in...the Jews left and did their own thing...they hated most of the Egyptian ways. Some thought maybe worshipping other gods was cool, but were omitted from the promise for it...
Jewish people have a stigma about Christianity. Their understanding of the old testament prophecies basically stated there would be redemption through the Messiah for the Jewish people. They never realized they would be confronted by some idea of them having to give up their identity. If they all had to give up their identity to receive it, there wouldn't be any of them left. THis is the most basic proof that them being required to give it up is a lie.
The irony is, many did anyway while fighting to keep it, simply to escape persecution. I believe you are Jewish by the right of your birth, even if you do end up accepting Yeshua Ha' Meshiach, but many people from many walks of life have an opinion and many Jews are afraid of being disowned by their own people. It is sad really.
My parents were Jewish but I prefer the New Testament to the Old Testament, it is simply easier to go along with everyone else and not have to follow a whole lot of meaningless rules. I personally think there are many Gods, since modern science accepts the idea of many dimensions, my idea is that each dimension may have many Gods. Hindus to this day believe in countless Gods, so maybe they are right. I live in the modern world and eat non kosher food and do not celebrate or care about the Jewish religion although I cannot say whether or not that religion is any more correct than any othe religion. I couldn't care less if Jews disown me, in fact I prefer to avoid their company because they are plain nasty. So am I still Jewish?
What made the first Jew a Jew ? Surely if that man didn't accept the invitation, God wouldn't have forced him. The only two opinions that matter are yours and that of God. I know what it is like to have gentiles call you Jew and Jews call you gentile. Be who you want to be. "If" there are many gods, one is certainly most supreme. That is the only one you need to answer to...
>The only two opinions that matter are yours and that of God. <
A remarkably dangerous, anti-social statement.
Nietzsche is dead, god is dead, and myself's not feeling very well lately.
With people like you in society, are you surprised...you come after me and attack me for sharing my faith...I didn't seek you out and cram it down your throat like you have been. All of my replies have been to people wanting them. Piss off already...
Nietzche; Gods dead to us = Gods Dead......unless there is something else out there willing to accept and acknowledge God
>you come after me and attack me for sharing my faith<
This is a chess forum. It's not a place for you to proselytize. And since you've already stated that you aren't interested in anyone else's opinion, then go preach somewhere else.
I wasn't proselytizing anyone ...take your anti-God and Anit-semitic bigotry some place else, we don't want bigots here
to you apparently- his point was to greater society
No, they could all be equal. Like maybe Odin and Zeus both exist, and neither one is more powerful than the other.
Odin's son, Thor, could probably best Zeus' son, Hercules, since Thor has that hammer. But I think Isis could take out Sif, for example, so even the pantheons may even out when taken as a whole. Pluto has a bigger army than Loki, but Loki is probably smarter, etc.
If there are a bunch of Gods, I am betting there is a balance of power. if any one god gets too uppity, the others will band together and bring him to line. So sayeth Ubik.
a fairy tale... we would know of their wars and their peace decrees...
Why would they bother to tell you, mortal scum? Your life is too transient to matter.
so it would appear based on our earthly understanding
It's going around.
Not for much longer.
Its interesting ,people can talk about Odin , Zeus, Egyptian sun gods, thor or the rest of the pantheon, but mention Jesus and your comment gets deleted!
