Thanks for the correction without argument. Quite useless that.

In ancient times virgins in the right supply and inserted at the right time were thought to mollify the angry deities residing in volcanoes.

If I'm honest, I'm dubious about the claim, despite it's antiquity.

Of course we had Slade, or was it Tom, telling us earlier that human morals don't change. the mind boggles....Social services might do well to have flagged up that particular post.

Edit: it was Tom M

GIA,

"You are mixing esoteric imaginary thinking with literal and real concepts. Impossible."

It's not impossible but most probable, considering that religious texts have many different levels of understanding. You should know that ohterwise you are not who you say you are, right Greatest?

"Meanwhile, if you trust the bible and Jesus at all, then do as he says and activate your single eye."

Jesus is not the only one who teaches about opening the third eye.

"Look up the word adam for it's Jewish meaning and you will see that it means society."

Adam has different meanings as well, it means mankind as a whole, and it is a personal singular name. If you really want to argue the meaning of the word Adam you should study the Hebrew alphabet, without understanding the meaning of each letter there is no way to to understand the Hebrew bible:

"the word dam, the Hebrew word for blood. The dalet is the sound of "D" with a word picture of a door, a leaf on a gate or a page. The second letter is mem with the sound "M" and a word picture of water and sometimes chaos. The word for blood in Hebrew has a very deep meaning, unlike the meaning in English. The two letters, dalet and mem are the root letters to some very interesting connections in Hebrew, and that is, the relationship between blood, earth, man and even the color red. In English there is no apparent connection but because Hebrew is a precise language, unlike English, everything has a specific meaning. The character of God shows in its design.

First the word "dam" dalet- mem, is Hebrew for blood.
Second, adama, alef-dalet-mem-hey, is Hebrew for earth or soil. Third, adam comes from within the word adama, (adam is one word for man.) This shows man came from within the soil.
Fourth, what sustains life? Blood or "dam," once again, all these Hebrew words are within the root of adama.

Altogether these individual words share a common root and tell the story that man came from the soil or earth, that man's life is in the soil and that the blood is red."

See this is fun, no need to put anyone down.

Spin,

"So the story of the snake in Genesis, like the story of Moses' staff, is a political commentary."

Isn't the snake also a phallus symbol used by male dominated religions? And the snake also represents the kundalini power which rests at the base of the spine until it rasies up in enlightened people.

If I remember correctly, Moses holds his staff and raises it up when he defeats the laws of nature.

Snakes seem pretty royal. In Chinese mythology a half-man half-snake was the father of the Chinese Emperors.

An interesting take on the Eden story. Worthy of a little thought.
