Afterlife

11 July 2012, 15:09

"Give me a chance to be that person I wanna be
 (I am unbroken, I'm choking on this ecstasy)
 Oh Lord, I'll try so hard but You gotta let go of me
 (Unbreak me, unchain me, I need another chance to live)"

As expected the challenge to the theists ended mostly with drivel and no real substance to the questions posed. I would have expected an intelligent response to try to save a soul. I am spiritually blank, fuck me, you guys didn't even try. And yes, according to the good book he took seven birds and clean animals on board but was only responsible for delivering two, the excess must have been food and for the altar. I am going to to try something these godbots failed miserably at and provide an explanation for the parable of Noah's Ark. Strangely enough, the creationists don't even know where their 6000 year old Earth comes from, well guys this should explain it. The Ark was built with 3 levels and many theists believe each level represents 2000 years, from Creation to Abraham, Abraham to Jesus, and the final one being Jesus to the End. Seriously WTF?

Another view is that the ark represents Man's spiritual journey, from darkness to light, accepting our base nature represented by the animals and then rising above it. The crow is the key to the story (the crow is an integral part of all cultures) as it did not die but continued to live. Huh?

The crow did what carrion does, it fed on the dead bodies floating on the water, feasting on the smorgasbord of flesh available. It is obvious that the crow would have gone for the softer parts first, the eyes and tongue, starting to get the message?

The elephant in the room, what does the crow represent?

The crow represents the good book itself (black cover and white pages), or as some others believe, Organised Religion (the priests/ministers/pastors wear black clothes and a white collar). From this point of view it would appear that the good book is speaking against the religious institutions who use it to pursue their own agenda, what the fuck, you didn't see that curve ball did you?

Maybe you don't understand the message at all?

What is the ark and what does it represent, what message were the ancients trying to send to future generations?

Bear in mind this story pre-dates the Abrahamic religion.

Was this a warning about organised religion?

Was this story hijacked by the theists to further their own agenda?

Definitely.

Remember to think and ask questions before you drink the grape flavoured Flavor-Aid.

By the way has anyone seen Jim909 lately?
