      The Book of Genesis

      What is your opinion on what the Book of Genesis represents?

      Do you think it represents the loss of innocence? As being removed from the Garden of Eden to till the hard soil and work for a living symbolizes a child's realization of how the world works?

      Do you think it represents man's evolution into an ego driven species? As eating the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, man stopped living in harmony with nature and began to manipulate it in regard to man's personal view on good and evil?

      Do you think it's a literal translation of the history of the universe?

      Do you think some stoner made it up and some other stoner believed what he said and that's how we get all these kooky myths?

      Tell me!

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      Genesis 1: 1-5

      1) In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

      2) The earth was empty, a formless mass cloaked in darkness. And the Spirit of God was brooding over its surface.

      3) Then God said, "Let there be light" and there was light.

      4) And God saw that it was good.

      And he separated the light from the darkness.

      5) God called the light "day" and the darkness "night". Together these made up one day.

      Big Bang (???)

      Could this have been the Big Bang?

      God broods and broods and broods then (like Don Queehotay of Man of La Mancha fame) HE snapps (!!!) and there is billions of megga tons of LIGHT.

      THE BIG BANG produced the first (and a bit of the second and third) element HYDROGEN.

      Forming nothing but gasious LIGHT.

      Genesis 1: 6-8

      6) And God said said,

      "Let there be SPACE between the waters".

      7) And so it was.

      God mad this space to separate the waters from above from the waters below .

      8) And God called this space "sky".

      This happened on the second day.

      Massive Ultra violet light protection for life on Earth.

      Deep thinking folk believe that half the water on this planet was once overhead, above the sky.

      When half the water on this planet was above the sky the suns killing radiation never got through.

      So all living things under that sky lived extremely long lives or even never died.

      Okay friends

      630 million years ago single-celled animals began forming into multi-celular, unique, softbodied animals in the sea.

      480 million years ago life came ashore. Before that there was not enough oxygen in the atmosphere to support life.

      The Earth warmed-up. Before that the Earth was a very cold snowball.

      Around 520 million years ago the Supercontinent Gondwana formed.

      Gondwana broke-up 180 million years ago at the beginning of the Jurassic Period, when the Dinosaur Age began.

      Gen1:26-29

      Gen 1: (11-25) 26-31

      26) Then God said,

      "Let us make people in our image, to be like ourselves. (...)"

      27) So God created people in his own image; God patterned them after himself;

      Male and female he created THEM.

      28) God blessed them and told them,

      "Multyply and fill the earth (...)"

      29) "Look!

      I have given you the seed bearing plants throughout the world

      and all the fruit trees for your food.

      Now reader Look At That.

      He made a bunch of men and women. This was before he made his, very special Adam and Eve.

      He told this bunch to multiply and fill the earth. Which they no doubt did. Evolving into the many diferent ethnic peoples of the world.

      The planet was so rich in vegetation that he orded these folk to be vegan, even fruitarians (?!!!?).

      But the best bit is yet to come.

      Stay tuned.

      Gen 1: 30 &31

      30) "And I have given all the grasses and other green plants to the animals" and birds for their food.

      And so it was.

      31) Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was excellent in every way.

      This all happened on the sixth day.

      Okay reader

      All birds and animals were vegetarian. Everything was perfectly safe in this Earth. I think the parrallel Universe proponants may be correct and maybe somewhere there is an Earth like this.

      And a God such as that.

      By the way that ends the first chapter of the Genesis.

      Genesis 2: 1-4


      1) So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed.

      2) On the seventh day, having finished his task, God rested from all his work.

      3) And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day he rested from his work of creation..

      4) This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.

      Dear reader

      Those 4 verses seem (to me) to belong the the end of Genesis One.

      Gen 2:5 & 6

      When the Lord God made the heavens and the earth,

      5) there were no plants or grain growing on the earth, for the Lord God had not sent any rain.

      And no one was there to cultivate the soil.

      6) But water came-up out of the ground and watered all the land.

      Dear Reader

      In this Deep-Myth it don't ever rain till Noah is locked in the Ark. Then the great water canopy, (Gen:1:6) protecting the planet from killer solar radiation, is ruptured.

      From then till the ruptur that safe and sacred earth of Gen 1 is watered every morn by the process described in the above verse (Gen 2:6)

      Gen 2: 7&15

      7) And the Lord God formed a man's body from the dust of the ground and breathed into it the breath of life. And the man became a living person.

      15) The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and care for it.

      16(...)
      17(...)

      Okay reader

      Two important things here.

      First: this amazing creation, Adam, is an unimaginable whole entity. Eve, at this point is an integral part of of Adam.

      Second: this entirely whole and complete being is never bored. Adam knows nothing or work. Adam is not cursed to work by the sweat-of-his-brow to eat.

      Treat Adam as a dream charactor and do a Boznac Embodiment. Unite with Adam. Get under his skin. See Adam's world through Adam's eyes.

      Ge2:18&19

      18) And the Lord God said,

      "It is not good for the man to be alone.

      I will make a companion who will help him."

      19) So the Lord God formed from the soil every kind of animal and bird.

      He brought them to Adam to see what he would call them, and Adam chose a name for each one.

      Dear Reader

      Two important things here

      The Lord God (in this Deep Myth) began creating Birds and animals for Adams enjoyment and deep emotional fullfilment. They were to be Adam's companions.

      Adam was given the wonderful job of naming them.

      Embody Adam and ask yourself how long would you take to give just one animal it's name.

      I would become that aminal and stay and play with him for months maybe years getting to know all the interesting aspects of its lovely nature.

      I would know, that my maker made this animal, to be my companion to help me.

      Second: If I spent years getting to know each animal in turn (befor I give it it's eternal name) how many millions of years would it take for me to name every animal that the Lord my God brought to me?

      Gen 2: 20-23

      20) He (Adam) gave names to all the livestock, birds, and wild animals

      But still there was no companion suitable for him.

      21) So the Lord God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep.

      He took one of Adam's ribs and closed up the place from which he had taken it.

      22) Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib and brought her to Adam.

      23) "At last!" Adam exclaimed (...)

      Dear reader

      Two important things happened here.

      First: Adam fell asleep

      Second: Adam never woke-up.

      Adam had a False-Awakening and the rest is a bad dream.

      (hehehe)

      But I will try to answer the endless questions you have about Genesis..

      Genesis 15, 17

      1 After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

      14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

      2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.

      6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

      How not to double post:

      Step 1. Say everything you intend to say in your first post. If you wish to use quotations, type [ quote ] content [ /quote ]

      Step 2. When you wish to say something else, edit your post by clicking the edit button on the bottom right corner of the post, and add more content to the original post

      Step 3. Profit

      Remember, it's not just the rules, it's common courtesy.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      I hate that little edit notification, it makes me feel like my post was an imperfect thought.

      As opposed to which other type of thought?

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      A thought that was second guessed.

      I asked you what sort of thought is opposed to an imperfect thought, implying there's no such thing as a perfect thought. Or perhaps I'm implying all thoughts are already perfect, whether or not they're second guessed.

      My opinion is that its an allegory for the development of man. The evolution of man from an animal to tasting the forbidden fruit , knowing the difference between good and evil and becoming 'gods' over other animals, distinguishing themselves from everything else in the garden. I also like the point of view that by tasting the fruit it was man who cast god out of the garden having no need for divine instruction now they had developed reasoning and morals.

      I see it sort of like man left the garden, which is why I tie it directly to the advent of agriculture. Rather than live off the abundance of the land people began to control the food supply, thus demonstrating knowledge (or at least assumed knowledge) over good and evil. To me good and evil, at its most basic level, is about believing you know what is truly good for you and bad for you, not necessarily in an objective sense.

      For instance displaying knowledge of good and evil in the biblical sense would be like choosing to weed a garden. You're creating evil for the weeds, but good for the plants you want to grow. This doesn't mean weeds are objectively evil, it depends on which garden they're in. Sometimes they just don't belong. In this way knowledge of good and evil is about man exerting himself over his environment, like you said.
