Those Elusive Ten Commandments

I really should read the Bible. I’m not one of those atheists who claims that my reading of the Bible actually caused my deconversion. I haven’t read it from cover to cover, primarily because it’s written so archaically, that I can’t get through it, and because there’s really no point to reading it. Logic says that you don’t put the cart before the horse, and logic also says you don’t read the Bible to find evidence of the existence of god. God must be proven first before I’d read it for that reason (and what other reason to read it?). To say god exists because the Bible says it’s true is circular.

If I had read the Bible, I could argue more persuasively with Christians about how foolish their reliance on a mere book written by goat herders thousands of years ago is misplaced, but then I really don’t care to have those types of arguments very often. It’s usually pointless, because their beliefs are really not based on what they read in that book, they are based on the desire to believe what they believe, because their beliefs are comforting, and they use the book to confirm their preconceived beliefs, to strengthen them, not prove them. They’ll point to the Bible and say “Look! Proof!” never quite understanding the logical fallacies they are committing in the process.

So while reading up on the Ten Commandments for a previous post I discovered something I didn’t know about them. The ones that Christians keep insisting we carve into stone and place on the courthouse lawn are not the Ten Commandments that god gave to Moses, that were etched in tablets and authorized as the “official” Ten Commandments. If I had read my Bible I would have known this.

The Ten Commandments we all were raised on are found in Exodus 20, and they are passed on to us through hearsay. All the bits about “Thou Shalt Not…” do this or that are contained there. However, nowhere in Exodus 20 does the so called Lord say that these are his “Ten Commandments”, nor are these 10 proscriptions ever referred to in the Bible as the “Ten Commandments”. They do appear to be certain rules that were made up and told to Moses at the time of his first trip up the mountain, but they were not etched onto the tablets that he brought down. In fact, he came down from the mountain and told the people the words, but there were no tablets. It wasn’t until he went up a second time that he was given tablets:

And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God. 1

When he came down from the mountain, he discovered that his people were worshiping false idols, and he got pissed and broke the tablets:

15And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

16And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.

17And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.

18And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.

19And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount. 2

Nowhere prior to this does it say that the originally spoken proscriptions of Exodus 20 are what were written on the tablets. In fact, in Exodus 34, it clearly states the opposite, that it was the commandments set forth in Exodus 34 that were written on the tablets.

1And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest 3

So, according to this passage the words on the first tables that he “brakest” are the same as the new set he’s going to give them. And what are they?

14For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

15Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;

16And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.

17Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.

18The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.

19All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.

20But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb: and if thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear before me empty.

21Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.

22And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end.

23Thrice in the year shall all your menchildren appear before the LORD God, the God of Israel.

24For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the year.

25Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning.

26The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.

27And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.

28And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments. 4

That was from the King James Version. Personally, I think the New International Version is easier to read and comprehend. Less archaic. Much clearer. I’ve highlighted the essential ten:

14Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

15 “Be careful not to make a treaty with those who live in the land; for when they prostitute themselves to their gods and sacrifice to them, they will invite you and you will eat their sacrifices. 16 And when you choose some of their daughters as wives for your sons and those daughters prostitute themselves to their gods, they will lead your sons to do the same.

17Do not make any idols.

18Celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread. For seven days eat bread made without yeast, as I commanded you. Do this at the appointed time in the month of Aviv, for in that month you came out of Egypt.

19 “The first offspring of every womb belongs to me, including all the firstborn males of your livestock, whether from herd or flock. 20 Redeem the firstborn donkey with a lamb, but if you do not redeem it, break its neck. Redeem all your firstborn sons.

“No one is to appear before me empty-handed.

21Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest.

22Celebrate the Festival of Weeks with the firstfruits of the wheat harvest, and the Festival of Ingathering at the turn of the year.[a]

23Three times a year all your men are to appear before the Sovereign LORD, the God of Israel.24 I will drive out nations before you and enlarge your territory, and no one will covet your land when you go up three times each year to appear before the LORD your God.

25Do not offer the blood of a sacrifice to me along with anything containing yeast,

and do not let any of the sacrifice from the Passover Festival remain until morning.

26Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of the LORD your God.

Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s milk.”

27 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.” 28 Moses was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant—the Ten Commandments. 5

So all this time we thought that killing, lying and stealing were important proscriptions demanded by the Ten Commandments, when in fact resting on Sunday, refraining from blood sacrifices to god with leavened bread, and cooking goats in the milk of its mother are far more important.

Who would have known, except perhaps those that read and subscribe to the inerrant truth of the Bible?

It seems that if Christians insist on paying homage to the “Ten Commandments” by claiming that American law is based on them, they should honestly list what laws are actually based on the real Ten Commandments.

Frankly, I can’t remember ever defending anyone from the charge of cooking goats in its mother’s milk. And I guess skipping church and watching the Super Bowl should be a sacrament now.

  1. I think Momma Chief said it best when she said, “if that’s in the Bible, I don’t believe it.”

    It’s all about what you want to believe. It’s like how I pretend the series finale of Battlestar Galactica didn’t happen. It’s the only way I can still like that show.

  2. Ridiculing God’s law comes easy to infidels, it’s what they do best. Without knowledge, of course, but, still, what they do best. It’s easy to ridicule Darwinism, too, because… well… it practically demands it. I mean, what thinking person wouldn’t ridicule something so stupid? A nervous, bitter, frenetic hypochondriac impersonating a scientist and millions, today, worship his writings like he was… God? Unreal.

    The Decalogue is immutable. Mixing other various statutes with it, particularly Levitical-type statutes, doesn’t take anything away from it, they merely reflect it’s character in their content. The Decalogue, as I’ve futilely tried to hammer through thick infidel skulls in the past, is more than just a list of do’s and don’ts. The attitude children (and infidels) take toward authority and restraint is reflected in most anti-theist’s opinions on this issue. (Like this post) Nevertheless, the law is representative of the character of God, exemplifying His government.

    Central to them all is the commandment that signifies God’s authorship of creation; the keeping of the Sabbath, which isn’t Sunday, by the way. Again, as I’ve tried to explain in the past, Sunday-worship is a pagan contrivance. The SEVENTH day of the week is the day God set aside for rest. Sunday is the FIRST day. Check your calendars. By observing the Sabbath, you accept that God is who He says He is and you recognize His authority. He, in turn, recognizes you.

    “It’s all about what you want to believe.”

    Yep, that pretty much exemplifies Momma Chief’s attitude and expertise in interpreting scripture. Of course, she couldn’t do any worse than Papa Chief, the latter knowing bugger-all about anything and everything to do with the subject.

    I’m not an expert on ancient Hebrew cuisine, however, I know most references concerning the first-born of anything are indicative and descriptive of Christ, Who is their antitype. The careful handling and care of food had special significance in an arid climate and there were spiritual connotations to it, too. All sacrifices to the Lord were to be without defect, the first-born being specified. These were to be representative of the Son of God, Himself, Who was without defect and perfect.

    The NIV was the translation I favored, for a time, then I realized that most believers and infidels were familiar with the KJV, so I switched. I find the poetic language of the KJV easier to memorize, too.

    I have trouble with this idea that the Bible is the basis for your constitution. I say this knowing that your forefathers were heavy into the occult through freemasonry and perhaps other arcane pursuits, as well. I also happen to know that nobody gets to any significant level in your government without becoming a Freemason, with few exceptions. Freemasonry is simply modern witchcraft. It’s one reason I keep telling you bozos why it’s a waste of time for you to vote. No one gets in and stays in without the real bosses’ approval no matter what the vote. If they get in and don’t toe the line, they end up like the Kennedy’s and Lincoln and Garfield. Jackson was smarter than they were, surviving numerous attempts to silence him.

    Your nation turned it’s back on God a long time ago, as was prophesied in Revelation 13:11-14. You’ve never really been God’s people, going by that passage. In future, (even now, in many ways) you’ll be the worst tyrant there has ever been on the world scene. Any Christian that thinks the USA is God’s country, has his head up his ass, IMHO. It certainly isn’t in his Bible. Your legal system surely doesn’t reflect God’s law, merely British Admiralty Law. Britain still views you as one of her colonies and I’ve heard some pretty convincing arguments supporting that view. At any rate, most bars are corporations, now, and corporations cannot nor are they set up to benefit or recognize human beings, rather their corporate, artificial constructs. (e.g. PURCELL, JOHN W. JR.) There is, however, nothing artificial about the Gospel, it deals with real flesh and blood individuals. (John W. Purcell Jr.)

    Your leadership is demonstrably pagan, by their annual attendance in Monte Rio, CA, where they worship a huge representation of a Phonetician god and engage in all sorts of weird rituals… God only knows what.

    So, yes, John, you should read your Bible right through. I mean, it couldn’t be any harder than the legal mumbo-jumbo I’m sure you wade through, every day. After all, God only needs ten laws, overall, to run the universe, whereas man needs thousands even to fail miserably at governing himself.

    • Old reliable Gideon does it again. I expected it. He completely failed to address the OP at all, taking it merely as an excuse to ramble on and on about his usual conspiracy theories and nonsense.

      The Decalogue is immutable.

      Who gives a flying fuck? I’m talking about the Ten Commandments as they are popularly known and adored by millions of Christians, to the extent that they love to create controversies by insisting that

      a. our present form of government is based on them and
      b. because of this, they should be placed in prominent public places.

      Gideon simply offers the standard apologetics about them. Ho hum.

      And Saturday? Sunday? Who gives a shit what day it is. A day’s a day.

      So, yes, John, you should read your Bible right through. I mean, it couldn’t be any harder than the legal mumbo-jumbo I’m sure you wade through, every day.

      I get paid to read that stuff. You want to send me a big check (you probably have my address) I promise to read the Bible. Let’s say, $1000/per book? That would be fair considering how long it would take me to plow through it at my hourly rate.

      After all, God only needs ten laws, overall, to run the universe, whereas man needs thousands even to fail miserably at governing himself.

      That’s truly laughable. The universe runs on the law proscribing the coveting of your neighbor’s wife? Who knew? And here I thought Einstein, Newton and Hawking et. al. were onto something.

      • Well, Johnny, I won’t be sending you $1000 nor 1000 cents, for that matter. No one paid me (or is paying me) to read my Bible through. I found the book interesting, though, and you couldn’t have paid me not to read it. Anyway, it seems just a tad inconsistent for someone that has to rightly interpret documents to be any kind of a success in his profession, to slight the opportunity of having at least a working knowledge of something that he’s apparently devoted his life to maligning. Again, do you have any Christian clients, John? Do they get the same level of service as infidel ones, or are you catering exclusively to infidels? Maybe you’re trying to be the next Clarence Darrow?

        I guess you’re not too swift, either, or you’d have noticed that I was actually supporting your disdain for Christians wanting to paste the Decalogue all over public places, or their assertion the legal system is based upon the Bible. Another discomfiting trait in someone that needs to be sharp, intellectually speaking. I dunno, John, do you think you’re really worth that $1000 a book and whatever you’re charging for other services?

        All I was doing was pointing out that your arguments are futile when you don’t have the background knowledge to warrant your refutation or mockery of God’s Word. Sorry, but just hating Him and Christians (like Philly) isn’t enough, you must have the proof in knowledge and experience to back your antipathy and insults. I mean, how far would you get in your business if you never read a law book? I guess there are other similarly significant lines of work… like being a circus carny or used car salesman… significant in that they run along the same lines in terms of integrity and honesty in dealing with society, though the benefits aren’t nearly the same for them as they are for you.

        John, Einstein and Hawking and all the rest were, like you and I, human beings. Human beings are flawed and capable of mistakes. They may be math wizzes and all, however, they don’t know shit about the universe, at least not where it’s origins and it’s Creator are concerned. Actually, Hawking was once close to admitting that there might be a case for intelligent design. (I think Philly must have boycotted his blog or threatened to) 😉 Einstein, too, had been known to make some rather interesting statements that could be interpreted as an indication that he was thinking about the same thing as Hawking. Anyway, they were both quick to cover their tracks in that direction, as there are a lot of Philly’s out there that watch things don’t get too out of hand.

        Gotta keep those standards up, y’know.

        Oh… you should check out my latest two posts, I’ve found your “missing link” for ya. See? I’m always doing you infidel’s work for you.

        • …a working knowledge of something that he’s apparently devoted his life to maligning.

          Ummm…you give me FAR too much credit. This is a part time hobby, not a job.

          Again, do you have any Christian clients, John?

          I couldn’t tell you exactly, though I presume so. One’s beliefs are irrelevant to what I do .

          I guess you’re not too swift, either, or you’d have noticed that I was actually supporting your disdain for Christians wanting to paste the Decalogue all over public places, or their assertion the legal system is based upon the Bible.

          No, I thought that was quite clear. But what you chose to be verbose about was irrelevant to that point.

          Human beings are flawed and capable of mistakes.

          With the exception of Gideon, no doubt.

          • Human beings are flawed and capable of mistakes.

            With the exception of Gideon, no doubt.

            Yeah, and it’s funny that people like him tend to have no problem with scientists when it comes to live-saving vaccines and antibiotics, landing men on the Moon or a probe on Saturn’s moon Titan and so forth. But when a scientist provides data that the Earth is older than a literal reading of the Bible or that humans and other primates share a common ancestor, it’s suddenly “Those damned scientists don’t know what the hell they’re talking about!”

            • Yes. And I’ll bet when the mechanic works on his Mercury, and gives him an opinion about the state of his engine, he says “What do you know? You’re just a flawed human. The Bible says the engine’s just fine. A little prayer, a sacrifice of a used carburetor, it’ll be good as new!”

      • The Final Five nonsense also killed a lot of the enthusiasm I had for the show starting in the latter half of Season 3. It just never really worked for me.

        I did like the mutiny arc in season 4. Who would have ever thought early on in the series that Gaeta would end up that way?

        • I got really annoyed when Starbuck went all woo-woo. I didn’t mind Laura Roslin’s woo – it fit her character. and made for some interesting plot developments. But Starbuck? Give me a break! The woo didn’t help her character or the stories at all.

          The writers did an excellent job of starting a strong series and shafting it.

  3. Wasn’t there some commandment about putting no leavening in birds nest soup?

    Something about, “Yeast is yeast and nest is nest and never the twain shall meet…)?

  4. Human beings are flawed and capable of mistakes. They may be math wizzes and all, however, they don’t know shit about the universe, at least not where it’s origins and it’s Creator are concerned.(Gideon)

    Do you actually proof read before you post. The way I read this, you dont know shit about the creator and the universe. So why dont you stop talking like you do.

  5. Re: Tommykey and Chappy’s exchange on Battlestar Galactica…

    Oh, brother! And I’m the one that’s supposedly off topic! 🙄

    “Yeah, and it’s funny that people like him tend to have no problem with scientists when it comes to live-saving vaccines… bla, bla, bla…”

    Son, I don’t have problems with science, merely with those that misuse it. I haven’t seen any of this “proof” you and others keep squawking about, it’s all “theory”, remember? Conjecture, theory, guesswork… after all, were YOU or any of your infidel scientists there to see the first fish-frog sprout chest hair and climb into a tree and bang his sister to produce YOUR ancestor? Were YOU there for the even bigger “Big Bang” that supposedly produced matter from nothing, endowing it with the agenda to eventually evolve into “progressive” liberals? Hey… sounds like your religion is based upon the same suppositions that you claim my faith is built upon! Mine at least has logic on it’s side, that intelligence created intelligence… present company excluded, of course.

    John, nobody works on my Mercury. I do it, myself. These youngsters, today, don’t know shit about old cars. Unless it has a computer that they can plug into and have IT tell THEM what’s wrong, they’re lost. I have a ’94 Olds, too, that is an electronic wonder… I let them work on that one. And, if you wish to be a member of sensei Philly’s hate dojo, you’d better buckle down and make slandering God a FULL-TIME job, son, none of this half-baked “hobby” stuff!

    Tit, it doesn’t matter whether I proof-read or not, you’ll read what you like into anything that I say… right? But, if that offer of a beer is still good, I’ll take you up on it… as long as you’re buying, that is. 🙂

    • Re: Tommykey and Chappy’s exchange on Battlestar Galactica…

      Oh, brother! And I’m the one that’s supposedly off topic!

      Our OT bit was fun.

  6. I don’t have problems with science, merely with those that misuse it.

    And it seems your definition of misuse is “Anything scientists say that conflicts with my religious beliefs.”

    I haven’t seen any of this “proof” you and others keep squawking about, it’s all “theory”, remember?

    That’s because you deliberately miscontrue what “theory” means when it comes to science. A theory is a body of principles offered to explain phenomena, or in other words, an analysis of a set of facts in their relation to one another.

    Therefore, the Theory of Evolution is a theory in biology that explains what evolution is and how it works. For example, humans are mammals, whales are mammals, and bats are mammals. Humans walk on land, whales live in the water, and bats fly. And yet, they share common features that we would expect if they all shared a common ancestor. For instance, we have five fingers in each hand, whales have five digits in each flipper, and bats have five digits in each wing.

    We know that humans originated in Africa because Africans have the greatest genetic diversity to be found among humans, which is what would be expected if Africa were the place of origin for humanity. Our closest genetic relatives, chimpanzees, live in, yep you guessed it, Africa. I could go on and one, but don’t want to take up too much space.

    after all, were YOU or any of your infidel scientists there to see the first fish-frog sprout chest hair and climb into a tree and bang his sister to produce YOUR ancestor? Were YOU there for the even bigger “Big Bang” that supposedly produced matter from nothing, endowing it with the agenda to eventually evolve into “progressive” liberals?

    We didn’t need to be there. The past leaves clues and there are a countless numbers of them. For instances, the oxygen in our atmosphere was produced as a waste product by cyanobacteria hundreds of millions of years ago. We know this because there are banded iron formations in the geologic record that formed when the oxygen reacted with iron. But people like yourself are not interested in discovering truth, but rather in clinging to religious dogma for your own personal psychological reasons.

    And that brings be back to my original point, since science does not validate your dogmatic religious beliefs about the age of the Earth, age of the Universe and so forth, you have to choose between the two. Since you have some psychological need to believe you are God’s special creation, you apparently have no choice but to accept the former. I, on the other hand, would accept the former if the findings of science actually supported it. And that’s the difference between you and I. Well, besides the fact that you’re crazy.

  7. “That’s because you deliberately miscontrue what “theory” means when it comes to science. “

    Well, son, if your definitions of terms and concepts didn’t keep changing, over the years, I might have less trouble taking you seriously. At one time, your (evolutionists’) word “theory” meant exactly that… it was conjecture, and everyone accepted that. Then, over time, when evolutionists began to see how flawed their conjecture was, they applied a little tromperie rusée, redefining and relegating the word to a less definitive meaning. That, like their about-face on man’s descent from apes to the now popular belief that both share a common ancestor, shows that there is a remarkable and determined effort by infidels, out there, to cover their old tracks and deny what is becoming more and more apparent to thinking people; evolution is bullshit.

    Men are not animals. When two people (heterosexuals) have sex that results in offspring, it isn’t a whale or a monkey or a dog, etc, that pops out after nine months gestation, it’s a human being. Classifying men as and with mammals is simply the inevitable course that one determined to deceive others into thinking his bullshit is correct, must take, if he is to succeed in his folly. Unlike mammals, man does not rely on extinct to survive, he has to learn practically everything. He isn’t born fully equipped to survive with only a short time (sometimes minutes, with some species) before he is eaten by some predator. I don’t care what similarities there are in the DNA, most cars have steering wheels and brakes; nevertheless, my car is a Mercury and not a Chevy. Apes have arms and legs like people, so do dogs and cats. Pigs are supposed to be more intelligent than dogs, maybe more-so than even some apes… what, you too proud to have a pig for an ancestor? The DNA argument, like the rest of your “theory” is bullshit.

    And, just like you didn’t need to be there to see your bullshit “theory” explode into existence from nothing at all, I didn’t have to be there to see intelligent life re-create itself, e.g. Genesis. Yet, it seems like infidels merely need to put up their hand and all dissent is forever and authoritatively silenced. Creationists always have to “prove” everything, when infidels only have to say it and it’s so. News flash: You haven’t proven diddly-squat, son! On the other hand, there is plenty of proof of intelligent design, first and foremost, the irreducible complexity of the universe and the life within. Second, the fact that we are aware of this fact and able to comprehend it at all, not only separates us from the lower animals, it shows that God is keen that we should have a knowledge of His existence and His care for us. Otherwise, all that we’d be concerned with would be feeding and fucking and feeding, again. (*Note to self: Hmmm… maybe that isn’t the best argument when dealing with progressive liberals… they do those naturally, without conscious thought!)

    “Evidence for Intelligent Design is obvious upon close examination of any mechanical machine. The concept and design inherent in a machine, whether simple or complex, is self-evident. Whether a machine is high quality or low quality, its designer is both necessary and apparent. Information Theory states that concept and design can only result from a mind. Even the diminished quality of a poorly constructed machine cannot obscure the necessity of an intelligent designer.” See the rest here.

    Take special note of this in the article:

    In fact, evolution became in a sense a scientific religion; almost all scientists have accepted it, and many are prepared to ‘bend’ their observations to fit with it.” H.S. Lipson, a Professor of Physics at the University of Manchester (UK)

    Like there was ever any doubt!

    There have been archaeological discoveries, too, that have supported the accuracy of the Bible as an historical document. Many ancient cities that were only known through scriptural accounts, have been unearthed. Despite all of this plethora of extraneous proof, I believe that common sense is the greatest tool we have in determining fact from bullshit. Evolution is an insult to the intellect. It mocks everything that stands for human dignity and sovereignty.

    Real science supports the fact that we are a special creation, not merely the result of sheer chance through the haphazard wanderings and collisions of particles that, only moments before, didn’t even exist!

    PT. Barnum had it right. There’s a sucker born every minute. Given that high percentage and given infidels’ own assertions that believers are a minority in the land, I’d say that’s damning proof right there that SOME people need to rethink their views!

  8. 😳

    Oops! Heh-heh… my bad! That should have read:

    “Apes have arms and legs like people, so do dogs and cats have legs and tails.”

    Must be a bad case of liberalism I’m coming down with!

    🙂

  9. Such commandments were based on bringing fear
    hence one need not turn to the sword in bringing
    power over others. As it be practiced now it being
    practiced then THE ART OF BRAINWASHING ..
    the bringing of fear / so well done that the people
    flocked as sheep / serving their religious masters.

    In having the one GOD not the many GODS gave
    wealth & power unto the few over the many…….
    with later generations the brainwashing started
    as young as 3yrs /4yrs /5yrs where the damage
    done to the developing brain by age 12yrs was so
    severe // the individual being totally incapable of
    independent thought / totally dependent in being
    told what to think ///of what they should believe.

    Much the situation with USA / BRITISH people’s
    where Govt in full control of an media which spins
    out endless lies deceit /in telling the people’s they
    are in great fear of attack of their being destroyed.

    As religious crackpots halfbaked fanatics in gaining
    power through lies deceit // such do corrupt Govts.

    More so the govts of the USA as the BRITISH they
    being expert at the spinning of lies deceit/ in having
    had centuries of practice /bringing immense power.

    In using defence of democracy defence of freedom
    as a cover / both govts having stripped the people
    of all basic rights // at present times an individual
    can be accused by the police in being an suspected
