A few years ago, when The Secret History of the World was published, I rashly promised that volume 2 would soon be completed and ready for publication. After all, I pretty much knew what I wanted to zoom in on – the topic of Moses and the creation of Judaism – and I already had a good hypothesis and had tons of supplementary support material.
I even had a title: The Horns of Moses (triple entendre!) It should be a piece of cake, I thought. And so, I sat down to write.
I had a pretty good flow going, Moses was coming to life on the computer screen, and then… well, then I started to have doubts. I knew that I knew a lot about Moses from the theological point of view and from the point of view of a lot of alternative research.
I even knew a lot of what the scholars knew – the people who spend their lives studying and analyzing the Biblical texts. But I still felt uneasy. So, I went searching for more source materials and discovered that there was a whole lot more I needed to read before I could complete this project. That’s pretty much what I have been doing for the past year or two: reading stuff that nobody except specialists ever reads, and collecting piles of data.
What has been shocking to discover is exactly how much IS known among the scholars that is not known by the general public. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised since I have discovered this to be true in other fields, but when the subject is the foundation of religion – stuff people believe in and stake their lives on and use to determine their actions in life – well, it’s pretty bad.
In the process, I’ve learned a lot about the creation of Judaism which is pretty much the “foundation” of Western Society.
And this was done at the expense of the perceptions of spirit that were common to Western Europe before the imposition of the Middle Eastern gods.
Well, anyway, as I branched out in my reading to include other references,
At some point, of course, I want to explore the role that cometary bombardment may have played in the creation of religion and then to examine the role religion has played in the fostering of lies and deceptions in our world.
After all, today we consider – can’t say I’m celebrating – the “birthday of Israel,” an event that has brought more misery and suffering into our modern world than any other event since the Global Holocaust of World War II. In fact, the two events are so intimately connected that you could say that the Holocaust has continued as a consequence of the “Birth of the State of Israel.”
But there have most assuredly been other Judaism created holocausts throughout the two thousand year history of Western Civilization; the crusades and witch persecutions come immediately to mind.
Judaism supposedly created Israel, and Judaism also is the parent of Christianity and Islam, so the issue of Judaism and Ancient Israel, from which it supposedly emerged, are not trifling topics. The fact is, as a growing body of scholarship demonstrates, there was no “ancient Israel.” The Hebrew Bible is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a historical document, and trying to understand the history of Palestine by reading the Bible is like trying to understand Medieval history by reading Ivanhoe.
Niels Peter Lemche, a biblical scholar at the University of Copenhagen, writes:
And, of course, the “maximalists” are true believers… those who have controlled the study of the Bible for a very long time; those who created archaeology for the sole purpose of proving the history in the Bible is true…
But archaeology is, little by little, becoming more scientific, and as it has done so, as it has freed itself from the control of True Believers, it has revealed that the Bible is not a historical source.
It is interesting to compare this concept – that the Exodus as the liberation of the Jews provided freedom for generations to come – with the concept of the vicarious remission of sins by the crucifixion of Jesus whereby future generations are “set free” by this act.
They are, essentially, the same; peculiar Eastern ideas that have no place in a civilization that originally took personal responsibility quite seriously.
Keep in mind that the stories of the patriarchs were re-written by those who were seeking to create a new nation after the Babylonian exile and the promises of land were put into the mouth of God to show that the manufactured Exodus story was just a step in the fulfillment of God’s plan.
I would, of course, suggest that the story of the plagues of Egypt is a memory of cometary bombardment, but biblical scholars do not include such speculations in their analyses and so, are somewhat handicapped in interpreting what may or may not be historical.
In other words, the stories were combined, glossed, adjusted, re-written, at a time when they were needed to underpin certain religious and political objectives, a time when the Law was already in place, undoubtedly after the Babylonian exile, or even later.
Some experts suggest that these stories were created under Hellenic influences because quite a few of the Bible stories indicate borrowings from Hellenic sources and concepts.
This is a curious fact. It reminds me of the legends of vampires that could only sleep in a box of earth from their native land. Connection?
Here I must interject a bit about the Kenites:
In other words, according to their own stories, the Jewish god is the God of Cain – the marked murderer – who slew his brother Abel.
That leads to a whole other area of thought and we won’t go there now, but it certainly gives us pause to think, to consider the “Mark of Cain” as being integral to Judaism.
We certainly can take note of the fact that, in Christianity and Judaism, the curse of Cain and the mark of Cain refer to the Biblical passages in the Book of Genesis chapter 4, where God declared that Cain, the firstborn son of Adam and Eve, was cursed, and placed a mark upon him to warn others that killing Cain would provoke the vengeance of God.
Or the Kenites ARE the Jews.
Well, that is damning enough when one considers the claims of the modern state of Israel – the lies they told and the myths they created – that justified their stealing the land of the Palestinians.
What is even worse is that, by trying to impose the false image of an ‘ancient Israel’ that never existed on the land of Palestine, the true history of the land and the people has been not only covered up, it has been categorically denied.
As Keith W. Whitelam writes:
But that is not to say that there aren’t historical elements in the Hebrew Bible as we have already seen!
In fact, if the historians and historians of religion would read their texts with an awareness of both Ponerology and Cometary bombardment of the planet at periodic intervals, what they are seeing that has been, until now, so puzzling, would suddenly begin to make perfect sense.
Considering Ponerology, yesterday I wrote an editorial that included a long quote from psychopathy expert, Martha Stout, in an effort to explain why so many people are susceptible to the machinations of psychopaths.
In that article I mentioned Nachman Ben-Yehuda‘s exposure of the fraud of Masada, the myth created in the early part of the 20th century, that was utilized to unify (by terror and mind control) Jewish immigrants to Israel, and turn them into efficient killing machines so that they would not feel any pangs of conscience over dispossessing the Palestinians of their land and their lives.
If the reader will take a few moments (heck, it’ll take an hour, but it’s worth it!) to read The Masada Myth and The Masada Fraud – The Making of Israel Based on Lies, you will have an exact picture of how the Bible itself was written. It is composed of various texts that were written at various times with various political and social agendas similar to those behind the creation of the Masada myth. Some facts are retained, others are suppressed, and there are complete inventions superimposed on the whole.
Voila! You have the Myth of Masada and in the same way, you have the Old Testament and the New Testament!
On the subject of mythmaking and religion, Burton Mack writes about this topic extensively in his analyses of the New Testament. Many of the scholars of the Old Testament also point to myth-making as the reason for its existence but Mack makes it pretty easy to understand.
And we saw exactly this process in the discussions of the making of the Myth of Masada.
We have to keep in mind that the event that triggered the creation of the Christian Bible which, ultimately, led us into the trap of the Judaic god of Cain, the murderer, was the conversion of Constantine which, very likely, was at a time of cometary bombardment and extreme social stress.
(Do have a look at the list of Meteorites, Asteroids, and Comets: Damages, Disasters, Injuries, Deaths, and Very Close Calls to get an idea of how these events have influenced our history, creating social chaos which is the ideal breeding ground for psychopaths and their ascent to power.)
Constantine became the sole emperor of the Roman Empire and called the first council of Christian bishops to meet in Nicaea in 325 CE. Constantine knew a unique opportunity when he saw one the same way that Shmaria Guttman saw that Masada was the ideal story to transform into a myth of Jewish ruthlessness.
When, finally, the Jewish scriptures and the “apostolic” writings were combined in a single book, the church was off and running; it had its story straight. The Hebrew bible could be used to claim extreme antiquity for the Christian religion, and served as the “Christian Epic.” Having claimed all these texts, traditions, and ancient history, the Christian church achieved honor in the eyes of the Greco-Roman world. (Which is why they did it!)
Without the Old and New Testaments together, the Christian church would not have had an appropriate pedigree in the eyes of 4th century people. And, of course, that history was amazing! Never mind that it was created by schizoidal psychopaths who wanted to create a Jewish Temple State in Israel with the help of the Persians, or that parts of it were used to justify the kingship of the Hasmoneans.
It had been revised and adjusted so many times, that whatever history had ever been incorporated was now lost in layers of manipulative gloss.
Christianity was driven by two schizoidal urges:
The thrust of Christianity is thus, backward in time, inward toward a psychological repeating of the founding events, and toward a specific location: Israel.
There is a certain irony to this because the original claim that Christianity made on the epic that belonged to Israel was based on the fact that Jerusalem was desolated and destroyed, so of course, God had abandoned it and chosen a new people – Christians – on whom he would bestow his favoritism. It was the destruction of Jerusalem that made it possible for Christians to steal the Jew’s epic “history” and interpret that destruction as God‘s desire to expand his territory to include the whole world.
So why, one might ask, would Christians want to go back to Jerusalem? That’s not logical.
But, not to worry: an explanation was soon forthcoming! It was declared that God logically wanted Christians to redeem Israel.
The Christian church claims to represents the kingdom of God on earth and its whole rant is that people must prepare for a future life in heaven under threat of an apocalyptic alternative. How’s that for mind control? The church can call society to task for not living up to God‘s standards, all the while pointing to some other time and place (never now, of course), when that kingdom of God will finally manifest.
The church has the Bible as its charter and the Bible has the universal plan, and the Bible is exempt from analysis. The fact is, without the Bible, and the belief in the bible by the masses of humanity as, at the very least, divinely inspired, the church would look pretty stupid. The Bible is the only object in the Christian religions that all forms of Christianity have in common.
For almost 2 thousand years, the church has forced people after people into alignment with the Biblical epic and “history” and the history of Western Civilization that is the result of that ancient epic. The traditions and customs of culture after culture have been subsumed, eradicated, erased from collective memory, and those people have been forced to adopt the Epic of Israel as their own – as if it were their own history. To become a Christian means that one must accept this epic as the only one that matters.
Saying “yes” to the Epic of Israel is the price one pays to become part of Western Civilization.
Additionally, the Bible functions as America’s Epic, the dream of creating “One Nation, Under God, indivisible…” One doesn’t even have to be a Christian to think that way. One only needs to think of America as the “flowering of Western Civilization” – but don’t forget that the roots of that civilization are supposed to be firmly planted in Israel.
Are you getting the impression that Christianity was created to serve Judaism?
As Keith Whitelam writes:
The biblical epic of Israel seen through the lens of Christianity, is based on a worldview that is universalist in scope, monolinear in history, hierarchical in power, dualistic in anthropology, and it requires miracles, breakthroughs and other cosmic dramas at regular intervals to rectify social situations that have run amok.
The fact is, the adoption of the Epic of Israel by Western Civilization has created more problems throughout history than it has ever solved.
We cannot go on destroying other peoples and cultures in order to “save them.” We cannot go on exploiting our planet because “God gave it to us to do with as we wish”. And unless we, as a culture and civilization, really come to grips with the fact that we have believed a pack of lies for over 2000 years, we aren’t going to get out of the mess we are in.
Criticism of the Bible has always been considered subversive.
But, the fact is, the Bible is a masterpiece of invention, the product of energetic mythmaking very much like the making of the Masada myth, the sacrificing of Truth. And this sacrificing of Truth is what has shaped the soul of Western Civilization.
As Burton Mack writes:
It’s pretty easy to cast most of the blame on Israel for all the horrors of our world today; it’s obvious.
But we have to remember that it would all grind to a halt in an instant if Christianity would withdraw its support for the re-creation of Israel which they see as necessary to “initiate the Eschaton.” One ought not to forget that it was the Bible Thumping British who started all this with the Balfour Declaration. Of course, one can think that there was blackmail – unusual and excessive pressure – exercised by the Zionists to get what they wanted.
But that doesn’t excuse the choices made by Western leaders under the influence of their own pathological, apocalyptic agenda.
And so, what we see, in the end, is a psychopathic minority at the top of all the governments of the world using the faith of Christians and Jews alike (and Muslims) to pursue their rapacious goals of seeking ever more power and plunder.
They do not even realize that they, themselves, or their offspring, will soon find themselves with nothing.
As Lobaczewski writes in Political Ponerology:
It may be the birthday of the State of Israel, but there is no cause for celebration.
Today Israel celebrates not the birth of nationhood but a 60-year-long campaign of ethnic cleansing of an innocent and defenseless people, justified by a 2000-year-old lie.
Rather than celebrate, let us recognize and mourn the fact that the whole world has been made slaves to this Judeo-Christian doctrine of demons and subjects of the synagogue of the vengeful and wrathful god of Cain, the murderer, that seeks to rob us of our humanity, and let us resolve to no longer tolerate the public spectacle of wanton cruelty that is the US, UK-backed Zionist entity and its systematic brutalization and murder of th
