TO RECOVERING Christians ET AL.

To All Recovering YAJites*,

Bless you dear ones, for you have been burned.

But listen dudes and dudettes, ya get burned by one hot stove, d’ya give up cooking? Not. Just because Jehovah, Allah and Yahweh did you dirty doesn’t mean all deities will.

When the Guiding Mother Goddess was our mainstay humans lived peaceful, egalitarian lives. Institutionalized warfare didn’t exist. Large-scale snooty snobbism didn’t exist. What could be wrong with letting yourself fall for a deity like this?

Love,
Athana

I didn't know any other way to contact you and I wanted to ask you something...
I have something I believe I channeled from the goddess, and she wants me to have it published, and I have no idea where to go or how to go about it. Can you possibly help?

Hon, do you know how everything started getting so ugly?

Sure, it was always ugly with tribes fighting over and for their Gods with sticks and clubs and such.

But then the Chinese invented gun powder and fireworks. Then things started getting really ugly.

I have mixed feelings about fireworks on some levels. Hugs.

I have no idea what that is. :-)

You must be really excited about this, amananta! It's easier and faster to get something published in the online journals. If I were you I'd try MatriFocus, at matrifocus.com. At the top righthand corner of the opening screen, click on the word "submit." They'll tell you how to submit your article.

Good luck!

BBC, YAJ is the god YahwehAllahJehovah, the god of Abraham. YAJites are those who follow YAJ. In this blog I've talked often about the fact that Yahweh, Allah and Jehovah are really one and the same god. If you've never picked up a copy of the Koran, do so some time. In it you'll find the same stories and characters you find in the Bible.

"it was always ugly with tribes fighting over and for their Gods with sticks and clubs and such." BBC, it wasn't always ugly. Pick up any college textbook on the Neolithic and it will tell you that in general people didn't do war then. People didn't do social hierarchy or slavery. There was no class of poor. Even in the Bronze Age the huge and sophisticated Indus Valley Civilization did not do one lick of war for hundreds of years. Furthermore, the evidence all points to this being a time when people worshipped mostly goddesses, not gods.



"But then the Chinese invented gun powder and fireworks. Then things started getting really ugly."

Again -- if you go to a college textbook you'll see that the time things began to get ugly was at the end of the Neolithic, at the end of the Goddess Era. That's when you get the rise of the first "states" in Mesopotamia and Egypt and a little later China. Bam: you get the first large-scale institutionalized warfare, the first rabid social hierarchy, slavery, torture, political domination -- all the things we hate about ourselves.

Thanks!

Well, I can agree with the Goddess thing, but the Christians and Muslims pretty much screwed that all up.

I'm not about to read the Koran, anymore than I'm about to read the Christian bible.

And I'm not about to believe everything in a college textbook. Especially an American college textbook. They write history the way they want it to look. Hugs.

BBC -- Here's the beauty of college textbooks. For almost every aspect of history there are a dozen or more interpretations about what it was, how it happened, what caused it, and so forth. Take the burning of the Library at Alexandria for example. There's more than one theory about who burned it and how. Some swear the Christians did it, others swear they didn't. The arguments can get pretty heated at times; even though scholars are supposed to remain coolheaded, they don't always. So who's right? It's the job of the textbook writer to decide, with his or her cool head, who makes the most sense. In this case he might say, "Scholars don't agree on who burned the library at Alexandria, but the majority think it was burned by Christians." But for many issues where there are eight or nine competing theories the textbook writer doesn't have time or room to describe them all, so he'll just say something like "The prevailing theory is...."

And, there's a darned good reason for the textbook writer to be fair and "accurate" here. If he's not, profs won't buy his textbook to use in their classrooms.
