2020 Food For Thought : Stop Armaggeddon Clock And Reverse Karma

Dear all,
Interpretation of Adam, Eve and original sin: Doing what comes naturally https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teavjYI9pdM

For almost the whole of human history, from at least 2 million years ago, mankind has lived by doing what comes naturally, a nomadic life of hunter-gatherer where mankind move around from place to place over the seasons and year following the food trail. Men were hunter (Hunting animal and fish) in a small group and women were gatherer and caretaker of child (Gathering edible items of any kind from fruits/nuts/seeds to insects). Life in a nomadic society wasn’t bad as they were in many ways much healthier, stronger and happier as they hunt-gathered just enough of their foods and share all their food together since food cannot be stored. They enjoy hunting, feasting, spending their leisure time with family, caring for each other, tools making, cave paintings etc and live a life of peace, tranquility and social equality as everyone were hunter-gatherer (Equality in work and society).(Garden of Eden)

Things only come to a change a mere 10,000 year ago where women (Eve) after many years of gathering edible of any kind from fruits/nuts/seeds and insects and for her desire/want to settle down in more stable and secure life (Serpent) experimented and discovered that edible fruits/nuts/seeds can be cultivated and animals can be domesticated (tree of the knowledge of good and evil) persuaded Men (Adam) to become farmer.(The forbidden fruit)
From land cultivation and livestock farming, food can now be stored and thus allowed accumulation of wealth (original sin) a new sinful/evil and an inequality world was opened up to mankind in growing of wealth and safeguarding of wealth. (Greed/craving, cling/attachment, fear/insecurity, envy/resentment, distrust/anger, hate/prejudice, worship/sacrifice, divine/god, landlord/capitalist, slave/labor, trader/marketer, craftsman/artisan, thief/robber, we/us, they/them, tribes/nations, kingdoms/empires, leaders/tyrants, murderers/conquerors and etc) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFIa3FNnFZM

The Garden of Eden (hunter-gatherer) is now gone and lost forever. What we inherited is the current world with many social ills cause by human own doing of wealth creation and accumulation. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-richest-1-people-in-the-world-are-on-track-to-control-two-thirds-of-wealth-by-2030-2018-04-10

The reality check, if we humankind still continues on the current wrong track of wealth creation and accumulation but lacking in compassion, love, altruism, wealth sharing and place great emphasis on worship instead of sacrifice/good deeds then by 2030 the richest 1% will own two-thirds of global wealth.

Thank you

Karma 3: Incestous

In Greek mythology, Zeus and Hera were brother and sister as well as husband and wife. They were the children of Cronus and Rhea (also married siblings). Cronus and Rhea, in turn, were children of Uranus and Gaia (a son who took his mother as consort, in some versions of the myth). Cronus and Rhea's siblings, the other Titans, were all also married siblings like Nyx and Erebus. Sea god Phorcys fathered many offspring by his sister Ceto. Myrrha committed incest with her father, Theias, and bore Adonis.

In Chinese mythology, Fu Xi was a god-king who took his sister Nüwa as his bride.

In some versions of the medieval British legend of King Arthur, Arthur accidentally begets a son by his half sister Morgause in a night of blind lust, then seeks to have the child killed when he hears of a prophecy that it will bring about the undoing of the Round Table. The child survives and later becomes Mordred, his ultimate nemesis.

In Ancient Greek literature, Uranus was the son and husband of Gaia. According to Hesiod's Theogony, Uranus was conceived by Virgin Gaia. Their child named Cyclop was deformed with single eye in the middle of his face.

At the beginning marriages among siblings were allowed until the medical personnels discovered genetic defects were very high among new borne babies whose parents are siblings.Then laws were formulated to stop this type of marriage.
Abraham took his half sister,Sarah as wife n it wad legal then.

Göbekli Tepe

Gobekli Tepe in Turkey was constructed 11,000 years ago and may be the first human temple., with some researchers even claiming it was the site of the Garden of Eden. 

Swiderians were responsible for the creation of Göbekli Tepe. Anthropological evidence suggests that at least some Swiderians were of striking appearance, possibly Neanderthal hybrid.

Possibly the memory of their great ancestors, who might have included Solutreans, Gravettians and even Neanderthal-human hybrids, that is enshrined in the twelvefold rings of T-shaped pillars found in the temple.

Snakes are omnipresent at Göbekli Tepe.Snakes are among the most often depicted animals at Göbekli Tepe. They appear on pillars, on porthole stones, on small stone plaquettes and shaft straightheners. Even today you may have the luck to encounter a Levantine Viper when visiting the site (yes, they are poisonous).

The original text from the King James Bible of Genesis 1: 27 says “And God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”

Lilith is said to have been the first woman in the world and was created by God at the same time as he created Adam. 

Eve was likely the second wife of Adam as in the Bible was said to be the one behind the sin of the forbidden fruit. Adam was said to have lived with Eve without issue until they both got expelled from paradise.

Also this law of incest may protect weaker family members from sexual abuses by sex crazy family members n using marriages to cover up their criminal wrong doings such as rape n molest.
According to biblical records Eve was the first woman created by God who used Adam's ribs to create her.Then God witnessed their marriage n Adam said became one flesh figuratively meaning they are one in unity.Pls refer to Genesis 2:23 for accuracy n jw.org .

Lilith was likely more of a neanderthal-sapiens hybrid than sapiens

Lilith is an extremely controversial figure within Jewish folklore. Lilith's name is not included in the creation story of the Torah but she appears in several midrashic texts.

Her symbolism, history and literature are debated among Jewish scholars, feminists and other intellectuals. There are multiple origin stories for Lilith but the most popular history told views Lilith as the first wife of Adam.

According to the "first Eve" story Lilith was created by God from dust and placed to live in the garden with Adam until problems arose between Adam and Lilith when Adam tried to exercise dominance over Lilith. One story tells that Lilith refused to lay beneath Adam during sex. She believed they were created equal, both from the dust of the earth, thus she should not have to lay beneath him. After Adam disagreed, Lilith fled the Garden of Eden to gain her independence.

Adam told Lord that Lilith had left and Lord sent three angels, Senoi, Sansenoi, and Sammangelof, to retrieve her. The three angels found Lilith in a cave bearing children but Lilith refused to come back to the garden. The angels told her they would kill 100 of her children every day for her disobedience. In revenge, she is said to rob children of life and is responsible for the deaths of still-born infants and crib deaths (SIDS). Male children are at risk of Lilith's wrath for 8 days after birth (until circumcision) and girls are at risk for 20 days. Although Lilith stole children's lives in the night, she agreed not to kill the children who had amulets of either of the three angels.

After the angels' departure, Lilith tried to return to the garden but upon her arrival she discovered that Adam already had another mate, Eve. Out of revenge, Lilith had sex with Adam while he was sleeping and "stole his seed." With his seed she bears 'lilium,'

Chronological

Lilith was mentioned in Sumerian/Babylonian clay tablets.

The first Jewish story of Lilith was told in the Alphabet of ben sirah



Down to earth (Original ideas)


angel (n.)

fusion of Old English engel (with hard -g-) and Old French angele. Both are from Late Latin angelus, from Greek angelos, literally "messenger, envoy, one that announces,"

All angels originate from the human race, and there is not one angel in heaven who first did not live in a material body. Moreover, all children who die not only enter heaven but eventually become angels.

Secularism is man made and God never invented LAW. LAW is a human creation to make people submissive to majority's liking. This practice is against the nature of human who has freewill. To suppress one man's freewill to impress majority is unlikely God's will. This is human's selfish nature hidden in LAWS and backed by holy men in robes. Some children who are healthy and well formed has satanic traits and make their parents' and community life hellish. The whole argument of family hardship due to deformed children smacks of selfish parents. If afraid of challenges don't get married or have children. That makes more sense.

Evolving ideas......added and amended over time......wingless to winged, etc......also

The idea of fallen angels derived from the Book of Enoch, a Jewish pseudepigraph, or the assumption that the "princes of Lord". Fallen angels are angels who were expelled from Kingdom.

Rabbinic Judaism and Christian authorities after the third century rejected the Enochian writings and the notion of an illicit union between angels and women producing giants

According to a paradigmatic interpretation, Enoch might deal with illicit marriages between priests and women. As evident from Leviticus 21:1-15, priests were prohibited to marry impure women (those expelled from the Kingdom ordenounces the Lord of the Palace?).

Accordingly, the fallen angels in Enoch are the priests counterpart, who defile themselves by marriage. Just like the angels are expelled from heaven, the priests are excluded from their service at the altar.

THE GREATEST-UNIVERSAL-TIMELESS UNIFYING FACTOR OR ALL

Sun Worshipping (Since the time of First Temple): If so lost and divided , return to the origin. Veneration of the unselfish-and-readily-available-free-for-all sun or a representation of the sun as a deity, as in Atonism in Egypt in the 14th century BCE.


EVOLUTIONARY/A STRONG CASE FOR HIJACK OF IDEA

Although sun worship has been used frequently as a term for “pagan” religion, it is, in fact, relatively rare. Though almost every culture uses solar motifs, only a relatively few cultures (Egyptian, Indo-European, and Meso-American) developed solar religions. All of these groups had in common a well-developed urban civilization with a strong ideology of sacred kingship. In all of them the imagery of the sun as the ruler of both the upper and the lower worlds that he majestically visits on his daily round is prominent.The sun god occupied a central position in both Sumerian and Akkadian religion, but neither the Sumerian Utu nor the Semitic Shamash was included among the three highest gods of the pantheon. The sun was one of the most popular deities, however, among the Indo-European peoples and was a symbol of divine power to them. Surya is glorified in the Vedas of ancient India as an all-seeing god who observes both good and evil actions. He expels not only darkness but also evil dreams and diseases.


SYMBOLISM OF WARMTH, JUSTICE AND WISDOM

The sun is the bestower of light and life to the totality of the cosmos; with his unblinking, all-seeing eye, he is the stern guarantor of justice; with the almost universal connection of light with enlightenment or illumination, the sun is the source of wisdom.


CONCEPT OF HEAVEN

In ancient Egypt the sun god Re was the dominant figure among the high gods and retained this position from early in that civilization’s history. In the myth relating the voyage of the sun god over the heavenly ocean.


REFORMATION

When the pharaoh Ikhnaton reformed Egyptian religion, he took up the cult of the ancient deity Re-Horakhte under the name of Aton, an older designation of the Sun’s disk. Under Akhenaton, the sun’s qualities as creator and nourisher of the Earth and its inhabitants are glorified.


25TH DEC

The Indo-European character of sun worship is also seen in the conception of the solar deity, drawn in his carriage, generally by four white horses, common to many Indo-European peoples, and recurring in Indo-Iranian, Greco-Roman, and Scandinavian mythology.

During the later periods of Roman history, sun worship gained in importance and ultimately led to what has been called a “solar monotheism.” Nearly all the gods of the period were possessed of solar qualities, and both Christ and Mithra acquired the traits of solar deities. The feast of Sol Invictus (Unconquered Sun) on December 25 was celebrated with great joy, and eventually this date was taken over by the Christians as Christmas, the birthday of Christ.

TRACEABLE ORIGIN/FOOTPRINT OF ASTROMYTHOLOGICAL-RELATED CULTS

In the solar myth, the death of the “old sun” occurs as the length of daylight decreases and becomes its lowest at the Winter Solstice which begins on the midnight of December 21 (early morning December 22) and ends on Midnight December 24 (early morning December 25). The sun stop moving south on December 22, it is then at its lowest point in the Northern Hemisphere, residing in the vicinity of the Southern Cross. It stays at this lowest point for three days (December 22, 23, 24 appearing to not moving south or north and was considered “dead”

It “returned to life” at midnight on December 24/ early morning December 25, when it begins its northern journey again and the hours of sunlight start to lengthen. Therefore, the ancient said that the SUN was born on December 25. As a result, mistletoes, holly, wreaths, cakes, gifts, greeting cards and feasts were done to honour the Sun, the undisputable life-giving sun that has the miraculous inexhaustible power to nourish everything, and helping to facilitate agricultural, etc.

Chronological Overview Of The Scriptures

Much of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament may have been assembled in the 5th-8th century BCE.

Late 8th–early 7th century BCE: Amos (initial composition of earliest layer); "First Isaiah" (Isaiah 1–39), Hosea, Micah (second half).

Jeremiah active in the last decade of the 7th century and first decades of the 6th.

Malachi (5th century BCE, contemporaneous or immediately prior to the missions of Nehemiah and Ezra). Job, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs (Could have been written in the 4th or even 5th centuries, but seem to reflect contact with Greek culture).

Book of Jonah (Persian or Hellenistic, no later than 2nd century BCE.

Wisdom of Solomon (late 1st century BCE or early to mid 1st century CE)

The Bible’s Old Testament is very similar to the Hebrew Bible, which has origins in the ancient religion of Judaism. The exact beginnings of the Jewish religion are unknown, but the first known mention of Israel is an Egyptian inscription from the 13th century B.C.

The earliest known mention of the Jewish god Yahweh is in an inscription relating to the King of Moab in the 9th century B.C. It is speculated that Yahweh was possibly adapted from the mountain god Yhw in ancient Seir or Edom.

Hezekiah

It was during the reign of Hezekiah of Judah in the 8th century B.C. that historians believe what would become the Old Testament began to take form, the result of royal scribes recording royal history and heroic legends.(LORD/KINGDOM/ROYAL PRIESTS/LORD'S MESSENGER/EXPELLED PRINCES OR PRINCESSES)

During the reign of Josiah in the 6th century B.C., the books of Deuteronomy and Judges were compiled and added. The final form of the Hebrew Bible developed over the next 200 years when Judah was swallowed up by the expanding Persian Empire.

When good/bad/neutral things/misfortunes happen to us or others, should we think of them as fate, pre-determined destiny, divine retribution or bad karma?

The best way to learn from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, is to think of the people trapped in the cave as majority of people in the world.

The cave people believed that the shadows they saw were the “truth,” just like majority of the world who believe in and pursue shadows based on faith, money, education, fame, love and so on.

These are generally the ideas and social norms that we’ve been told to stick to from childhood because of the majority consensus.

Unfortunately, thinking like this often leads to a life of missed opportunities and mediocrity because you’d never realise how much more of reality actually existed outside the “cave.”

What about the person who escaped the cave?

This represents the small handful of people who dare to think and act in a different way from the crowd.

They don’t have an imagined “shadow” reality because they’ve stepped outside their comfort zone into the “sunshine” to uncover the true reality of life.

These people live a life with limitless possibilities and often change the course of history (think Martin Luther King, Steve Jobs, Isaac Newton and so on).

It’s not because they’re better than everyone else that they’ve “escaped the cave”. It’s simply because they’ve made a decision to consistently step outside their comfort zone, face their fears and think in a unique way.

Once I interviewed a young lady for a vacant supervisor post. I asked if she had heard of Plato's Cave. She said, "No". I explained that we had half an hour chat from that moment. I took some time to narrate Allegory of the Cave to her.

After checking her unferstanding, I asked,"Can you figure out.how to uee the underlying message in managing the workers?"

After thinking for a while, she replied, ' Sir, we must make the workers see some values in what they are doing. "

Me : Tell me more about your idea.

She : We can organise some competitions such as nomination of the best staff of the month or something. Or annual compamy trip for those who perform well. Meanwhile, I'll continue to improve myself by self-learning, questioning the norms and attending courses to stretch the dimension of my mind!

From a flawless creator, angels are created as messengers and do not have free will, despite possessing the knowledge of good and evil. They are not subject of the material limitations of death. Moreover, angels have no carnal needs; they do not crave physical pleasure. In addition, They are not subject of the material limitations of death.

Mankind was given something very unique from the time of creation. Man received a free will, so that he could make his own choices according to his own free will.

God is loving to us bcos he sent his only beggotten son,Jesus to die for the sin of Adam so that his decendants gain gain the rights to live forever in the paradise earth.He appointed Jesus n 144,000 disciples to rule over the earth from heaves.He intends to restore the earth to paradise conditions where there is plentiful of food,exquisite delight in the abundance 8f peace n security.Rev 7:4,Rev5:10,'.......they are to rule as kings over the earth.'
In Isaiah 65:25,'The wolf n lamb will feed as one.......Psalm 37:9,10,11,'The evil doers will be cut off....' 'The meek ones will possess the earth....
So we suffer temporarily now at the hands of the wicked humans n devils but soon they will perish from the eath and leave the good ones alone,aren't you be consoled by God's plan for you?
In the future maybe our mode of exchange of goods will not be currency but gaining points from good works we perform to others. In such situations everyone will be motivated to do good works in the paradise which will be excellent for us to live.Let's cheer for the the day to come n repent now for our sins n acknowledge the true God n his rulership through Jesus n the 144k disciples.

A repost worth reflecting on:

The beginning of 2020 has revealed enough for deep reflection:

That giant Australia is not at all invincible from fire…
That mighty China could be shaken by enemies that are too small to be seen…
That what we view small is a fully destructive Volcano…
That what we see as a basketball star could fall into a deadly crash…

Things are, indeed…
never too big nor too small…
never too high nor too low…
never too powerful nor too faint…
never too wealthy nor too broke…
never too famous nor too ordinary…

Whatever our condition is, …
we are all equal…
we are all important…
we are all gifts…
our current status does not define us at all…
what we have or possess is never a mighty protective armor…

So, in life…
don’t be rude…
don’t be greedy…
don’t be selfish…
don’t be ill-mannered…
don’t be crabbed…
don’t be wicked…
don't be unempathetic...
don’t be messy…
don’t be all knowing…
don’t be deceitful…
don’t be domineering…

After all…
we are not invincible
we are not mighty
we are not immortal

The early part of 2020 has lots of revelations.
It is never too late to be good.
Listen.

Lastly, I would add - be grateful for what we have.

The attitude of gratitude is a must if we were to live happily every day.

But complacency (anti-disgruntlement/contradictory ideas) is bad.

For example, Human has shaped and reshaped the standards, principles and practices over the millennia.(Still varies by geographucal areas these days)

From being oblivious with regards to slavery - to absolute disapproval

Stoning or bodily disfiguring/removal as a form of deterrent punishment - to community service under suoervision
