As I was looking up some Bible contradictions yesterday on the web I must admit, I was somewhat dumbfounded by how many they are. There are 2 accounts - one saying that Heli was his father, and the other - Jacob. So what gives. I don't bother to question anyone about this because I'll just get dicked around and told that I should just believe and not keep questioning and this just sickens and annoys me. Basically I have come to the conclusion that the Bible is just a collection of books, some inspirational, some directional, some; based on the time period - legal and some, well just stories. A collection of people's thoughts and interpretations on life and the human condition. The human condition which basically doesn't ever change. People are and will always be stupid, greedy, envious, jealous, murdering and vile. Sometimes people tell me, oh you see, the Bible predicts, not really, statements about humans ring through from 2,000 years ago to present, we war, we fight, we never get along and on and on it goes. What has happened is that this book for the most part is revered by people as some sort of mystical saving device, in my opinion it is not.

It is a good book, with many deep things, comforting verses and good insight, there are also things to be taken very lightly. Bible thumpers take what they want to suit their own prejudices, likes and dislikes. Slavery and the crushing of Black culture in the Western world was justified through Bible verses. Racists in their most vile form found verses to support their hideous beliefs. The white man bastardised and used this book to subjugate and steal the human and material wealth of countless Africans. And then he told us that our culture and our religions were not good, or good enough. We had to convert to his, and turn our backs on ours. He made us fear and run from the religions of Africa, of our ancestors. We were made to think that the heinous slave trade and slavery was a necessary evil, we were evil so we had to suffer and now we have Christianity, we were lead from the dark into the light. Yes we've been brainwashed and sold that shit for centuries. Our books, the books of the Maya and all the great civilizations destroyed because the white man is a dictator - he wants no other authority but himself. He is god of his universe. Now we're made to believe that we'll never make it to heaven, all through slavery our suffering was placated by the fact that if we pray to sweet Jesus, we'll be happy after we expire and get to heaven. No fears - we'll be happy one day so keep cutting that cane and picking that cotton. Where are our books, where are our "bibles" from our civilizations. Do you mean to tell me that God put us all here and only chose one group of people to write a great book, and nothing like it before or after. That in itself is nonsense. No the white man with his twisted cult of Christianity has made sure that no book be revered, not the Buddhist books from China, nothing spiritual from the East, not the religions from the Indigenous peoples of the world, and certainly nothing from "darkest" Africa. Nothing - only his world view stands and that is what I have fallen away from. Having these views are frightening for most because people need a false sense of security, a blanket, even though deep down inside they question, they'll never admit because most people are afraid. To let go of these delusions is like falling, falling through time and space where nothing really matters. I fell away and now I see things in a whole different light, I guess that was the story about Lucifer falling out of heaven, you just kinda fall to earth I guess, falling to earth and reality.
