THE THEOLOGY OF THE MIND
a Return to Sanity in Religion
"As a man thinketh, so is he --" Solomon Paraphrased.
The Story of Adapa,
The Human Son of
also known as
Creator of Mankind!
Can be summarized by this one slide from the Internet!
Adapa, Son of God,
that God being Lord EA,
was allowed, indeed encouraged, to learn everything he was able to learn, wrote many books, associated freely with all the gods,
and was able to travel in a Space-Ship to Nibiru, the "Heaven" of the Anunnaki,
and was there offered ETERNAL LIFE, as the "Bread of Life" and "Water of Life" but having been deceived by Lord EA to believe the heavenly gods would poison him, he politely refused, and stayed mortal.
He did live, however, many thousands of years, the most honored HUMAN of the earliest days of civilized humans.
THE EDITORS OF OUR BIBLE, HOWEVER,
REJECTED THIS STORY,
THE STORY OF ADAPA,
AND CHOSE INSTEAD ANOTHER STORY--
ANOTHER GOD THE SUMERIANS, ASSYRIANS, AND BABYLONIANS DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT, WHO KEPT HIS NAME A SECRET, SAYING "I AM WHO I AM" -- CREATED ALL BY HIMSELF A MAN NAMED ADAM -- FROM THE DUST OF THE GROUND.
AND LATER A WOMAN NAMED EVE, SURGICALLY REMOVING HER AS A RIB FROM THE SIDE OF ADAM -- WE KNOW THIS GOD NOW AS YAHWEH.
UNLIKE LORD EA, WHO WANTED HIS SON ADAPA TO LEARN EVERYTHING IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR ADAPA TO LEARN, YAHWEH FORBID HIS CREATED "CHILDREN" TO EAT FROM THE TREE OF "KNOWLEDGE", AND EXPELLED THEM FROM THEIR GARDEN HOME WHEN EVE DISOBEYED, AND FOLLOWED INSTEAD A TALKING SERPENT'S SUGGESTION THAT EVE COULD BE WISE LIKE THE GODS (MORE THAN ONE GOD) IF SHE ATE OF THIS FORBIDDEN FRUIT.
Adam worked "by the sweat of his brow" to keep his growing family fed and clothed, and Eve suffered the pains of childbirth, but they and their children were sinners because they had disobeyed Yahweh --
A mere 4000 years later Jesus Christ was born, and in 33 AD crucified by the Romans for the "sins of mankind". He had enough time, however, before this crucifixion, to train a few disciples, who spread the WORD that Christ was really GOD (Yahweh) living as a man. By 325 this TRUTH was fully understood as the DIVINE TRINITY.
Jesus' human mother Mary, whose role in all this was not perfectly understood at first, has become more and more appreciated and honored as the centuries have rolled by, and she is now recognized by the truly "Religious" as part of this DIVINE TRINITY also. Or at least the "Queen of Heaven."
These "Queen of Heaven" honors are mostly a Catholic thing, but now almost all Protestants are willing to shut out Yahweh from having anything to do with the Creation of Adam and Eve other than granting Jesus the opportunity to do this as part of the DIVINE TRINITY. Jesus took a break in his duties as co-ruler of the Universe to go down to that tiny planet called Earth and create the Earth and everything on it in 6 literal 24-hour days about 6000 years ago as of 2000 AD.
Christians now completely ignore what Genesis relates in it's plain text and substitute Jesus Christ as the one who did everything that the Elohim (originally) or Yahweh (as redacted by "Moses") or lastly Jesus (as redacted by Christians) did in the creation of the World. And of course, followed this latest pattern, Jesus created Adam and Eve. Whether he started with red mud, we don't know.
Modern Christians are born into a world-view in which it is generally conceded that Jesus has the Whole Wide World in his hands -- and will come back soon to recreate the world, after it is "cleansed" by fire.
And it's also believed by most Western World church-goers that those who don't accept Jesus as their Savior during their life-times will burn forever in hell-fire when they die. There are a relative few, the Seventh-day Adventists, who believe dead people are unconscious, and if judged unworthy of eternal life, will be burned up to ashes in a "lake of fire" at some distant future date.
Those who are completely happy with the THIRD obviously tampered with and rewritten story of CREATION, and the RELIGION that accompanies it, are entitled to keep it, and most likely will not be at all interested in an ALTERNATIVE, which I will offer next, which will be:
As can we also, if we chose to do so! And we need not discard the Bible to follow this ALTERATIVE Religion, because it also is taught in the Bible!
We can be FREE to THINK, and CHOOSE what we wish to become - following the MOTTO or Proverb --
