In Response To: Adam and Eve (knowledge)
HERE WE GO AGAIN!!!!!!!
THE ANSWERS ARE IN GENETICS
RE MITROCHONDIAL/ONE MOTHER;
GENETIC BOTTLENECKS/WORLDWIDE FLOOD;
Then there are the numerous worldwide indigenous creation stories...and just because these and the Bible account, which is only one of them, appear to be unsophisicated does not mean they can be discounted.
Surely this attitude is a by product of the european "Age of enlightenment" with its "high point" of Darwinism.
Science whilst it has disregarded these accounts as negilible it will indeed prove their plausibility albeit their seeming simplicity.
Re; the tribe of Judah and Jesus' birth... Joseph was not the natural father,seen, but think about it what tribe was Mary from?
The "blood of Jesus" is not a roman catholic thing, think, Jesus was a shemitic hebrew from the tribe of judah, the ruling tribe...when did roman catholicism come into being as a corporate institution to hijack chriatianity?...4th century a.d.
In 306,the romanarmy in Britian proclaimed Constantine as emperor. He apparently saw his vision of a cross in the setting sun with the words "In this sign conquer" on october 27, 312.
this battle was against Maxentius who ruled over Italy and North Africa.
So Constantine became mastre of the western Roman Empire.
In 313, in the city of Milan, Constantine set up an edict to put a stop to the persecutions of christians. These of whom had their beginnings in a very small organization made up of many poor people without education or prestige. Even so the message of "the way of Jesus" spread through the known world at the time despite military powers,learning, poitical and cultural odds.
The Edict of Milan had its advantages in that true christians were no loger persecuted but under the banner of Constantine, Christianity became a passport to political, military and social advantage... to mass conversions...result corruption
It remains so today as despite the Reformation, "the Church", is in the same state of corruption.
After centuries of practice and I must add here it has nothing to do whatsoever with the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.
AND so the story goes on....
