garden of eden

The Fall

Chinese charater for paradise

Where the concept of the ejection from the garden is false is that mankind left the garden under the operation of his own free will and the Creator and Sustainer sits silently waiting in the Garden for us to rejoin him.

"Original Sin," as it is called, is simply the emergence of the Ego. The fall from grace," is only an illusion of separation. Adam and Eve were never tossed out of the beautiful paradise of God's creation. They walked out. By eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge, they suddenly became aware of their differences." - Vincent Cole

"Original Sin is that thing about man which makes him capable of conceiving of his own perfection and incapable of achieving it." - Reinhold Niebuhr

PARADISE

A contemporary interpretation of The Garden of Earthly Delights

Chinese charater for paradise

"Paradise is Life." - Henri Barbusse


"Paradise", a Persian word describing a walled orchard garden or an enclosed hunting park, is a synonym for the Garden of Eden.

The earliest cultures of Mesopotamia, "Land Between the Rivers," and the Levant were directed by priests who established traditions.

The temple was erected at the center of the settlement and was the most awe inspiring building.

This pattern of a society with a centralized place of worship can be seen in the all the ancient cities of Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas.

The role of religion in every civilization is to establish a common moral order.

Priests, or kings derived their authority from the gods and they were the ones who devised the moral and social codes that kept increasingly complex societies operating in a 'civilized' or controllable manner.

At the dawn of human history the Dreamtime of Unity Consciousness was shattered when early thinkers could imagine a reality free from want.

The vision of a reality free from want, seen in the imagination of the mind's eye, came to them in the mystical image of the Garden of Eden.

The Garden of Eden, where all wants are met, where all desires are fulfilled and where the ever present desert of extremes receded from consciousness, was a return to the dreamtime.

Once they shared their vision it became necessary to come up with a reason for why man was separated from Paradise.

The emotions people experience come from the natural order.

Individual life saving emotions may work for the individual and yet hinder cooperation within the tribe.

Fleeing the reorganization of Egyptian society Moshe Rabbenu synthesized foundational elements of the religion of Akhenaten with the Sumerian, Cannanite religions and Babylonian law.

Rational consciousness bestows an element of guilt on the taker of life that understands the gift of life that has been given - a natural empathetic response.

Ritual gratitude for life relieves the bearer of error - Original Sin.

The premise that all men are born in error was a relatively new concept.

They began to imagine not letting primitive emotions drive decisions.

Advanced cultures engage in social engineering in the attempt to control the population as primitive emotions must be tamed and diverted for the culture to thrive.

Only groups working out elaborate commonly excepted social rituals that keep in primitive emotions in check will be able to prosper.

With primitive emotions in check civility reigns within the culture.

Elaborate religious theology constructed by each culture is intent upon taming primitive emotions and informing the type of lifestyle that culture wishes to embody.

Most religious theologies divide humans into at least two opposing groups - those who belong to the fellowship or can be tolerated as non-threatening to the fellowship and those who are "other".

First mention of Israelites is on the Merneptah which has a short section at the end of the poem describing a campaign by Merneptah in the first few years of his reign, 1210 BC. One line mentions Israel:

"Israel is laid waste, its seed is not."

Here we have the earliest mention of Israel outside the Bible and the only mention of Israel in Egyptian records.

The Egyptian record identifies the Israelites as a nomadic people.

The fleeing Israelites had been driven into their nomadic life by the Egyptians who usurped the dynasty of Akhenaten.

Akhenaten was referred to as 'the enemy' in Egyptian archival records.

The Israelites defeated the king of the city of Ugarit around 1180 BC.

The Hebrew prophets combined and folded several aspects of the individual Canaanite gods into Yahweh.

In Canaanite mythology Yahweh was the son of El.

Babylon derived its name from Ba-bi-ilani, or "the gate of the gods," the place where the gods descended to Earth.

Inca urban society rested on the belief that their rulers were gods, their word law, which was very similar to the Eygptians.

Greek and Roman communities shared a powerful sense of "sacred space" in their central core and each devised elaborate codes of law most readily seen in the pantheon of common gods.

Islam fostered the creation of a coherent civilization by imposing a rule of law that applied to personal and commercial transactions.

The horse people of Genghis Khan lived on the Mongolian Steppe, an endless grass prairie, practiced a shamanistic religion quite similar to the Native American horse people of the Great Plains.

The differences between the two can be traced to elements of Hindu and Buddhist religions being different from elements of Christian religion which Native Americans had been exposed to.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect ../world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
