I think it is appropriate that on April 1, we consider the documentation of the Bible and what it has to say about the ancient gods that roamed our planet. This seems to have occurred right up until Christ came here. Not much is said about living individual “gods” after that. I think they evacuated the planet.
The most ancient of books I have been told is the book of Job. Why isn’t it in the beginning of the Bible? Well it occurs in an unknown time sequence.
Our God is rightfully proud of Job. He is everything a worshiping human should be. He is upper class rich in his society. He has wife, kids, property, health, and is faithful in his worship.
We are given an insight into the politics of the gods. God is obviously holding court in this story. The Devil appears to be a member in good standing of this court. He is not in disrepute here. He is in the form of a prosecutor. This is an honorable profession in that court.
He brings up the point that Job is prosperous because he worships God. What if he weren’t prosperous? Would he still worship God. Big question.
Job is obviously outmatched by the Devil here. The Devil appears to be a member of a society of immortal beings. That in itself is remarkable.
What is the tragic sickness of all immortals? I suspect it would have to be boredom. So God and the Devil have a little bet going on the outcome of one mortal worshiping being named Job.
They take away everything he has. Kill his family, destroy his property, destroy his health and leave him a beggar with torturous boils itching all over his body. Will he still worship God? That is the question of the book.
When Job continues to worship God as if nothing happened the Devil is literally blown out of the water here. Job is very patient with his God. Not so, his friends and neighbors who see it as a violation of his contract with God.
This is where we have an indication of the immortal nature of God. “Where were you when I was creating the Earth(not a direct quote)?
Good question! God is establishing his right to do with us as he pleases. He owns us. We are his property. That basically puts us in the status of “pets” in our world. Pets are trained. Housebroken. Protected. Given food and water. A litter box of some kind and a place to stay. At least that is the status of my pets. I also provide them with medical care which the gods obviously do not think is part of the deal.
I suggest we are the victims of a game by the gods to determine who wins or loses. Not sure what the gods win or lose in predicting our behavior. They are immortal. We are simply play toys to these immortals and our purpose appears to be to relieve the boredom of immortal life.
It is suggested here that the head of these immortals is a powerful entity that has set up the Earth as a life giving planet. It is suggested our “God” is the creator of it all. He appears to be an immortal with enormous powers.
In Genesis, this is described as an on-going creation. From dust we are created and dust we degenerate to after we die. In other words, we are all going to die in a small length of time that is almost meaningless to an immortal.
What is amazing to me is the documentation of demigods. Demigods are those beings that are created by gods mating with mortal women. They have the attributes of both immortal and mortal animals. They die. Just like us. In most cases this appears to be true in the Bible. The entire region of the middle east is rift with tales of demigods with extraordinary powers. Of wars between the demigods with entire armies of humans being sacrificed in those various wars.
My purpose here is to discover the “rules” by which we are subject to these “gods” not demigods. They appear to have a court of law governed by this “god/creator”. What is our status before the throne of this very powerful being? Are they still playing this “game” to this day? If so, it appears to have been some kind of war that made them evacuate the planet leaving the priests of these religious temples to their own devices. Atomic war would have that effect. If the planet was not habitable, they might have left us to our own devices.
Where are the living “gods” now? No one really knows. I would suggest they are on their home planet where ever that is.
Jesus is described in quite different terms. His following seems to be that of a magic person. He is capable of curing people of any number of diseases just by commanding that it be so.
His origin is wrapped up in one virgin “Mary” getting pregnant before her marriage to one “Joseph, a carpenter by trade”. The “father” is described as a powerful being named the “Holy Ghost” and is not to be argued with.
From there we have a description of a networked being that is both the creator of everything and master of a “ghost” realm with a separate life from the creator yet integrated as part of a whole being. Jesus is described as part of that network in the form of a “son”. By definition, if half his nature is from Mary then he is a demigod. Half human, half god.
Some of his powers appear to be telepathy, telekinetic transference, apparent disobeying of natural laws, empathy and cure of humans, the ability to regenerate from obvious death back to life, a network communication with the Holy Ghost and the above mentioned creator/God of the universe.
Apparently, Jesus is busy. He is preparing a New Planet to take the place of this one. Somewhere down the road, this one is going to be destroyed. Probably in some kind of explosion that dries up all the oceans and heats the planet into molten lava killing all life on the surface. His followers have been promised immortal life on the new planet.
He maintains that only a select group of people will actually make it to the new planet with new heavens. This is all scriptural in the new testament books. Especially in Revelations.
Descriptions of beings in Revelations suggests multiple alien races are involved in this project. It is suggested the God/creator is involved in this project and his Son Jesus will rule over this new planet.
All of this is conjecture based on human reports in the scriptures. The truth is we do not know anything about what is really going on.
If I were to create immortality in an animal, I can only guess how it would be possible on a planet such as ours where creation and destruction are on an equal basis. I would suggest the universe itself is some kind of construction similar to a holographic universe like as described in Science Fiction such as Star Trek.
In such a universe, it would be possible to reconstruct any person from existing data in the computer program running the Holographic Universe. This would explain throwing people into a lake of fire in which they continued to burn forever. If the person was immortal then that person would be continuously reconstructed as it is destroyed. The only way around it would be to locate the person being reconstructed in a different time/space point than where it was destroyed.
What is the damage to the mind of someone tortured in this manner? Would the mind reconstruct to a point where the torture has not occurred yet?
For what purpose? I mean to me the motivation is gone if you cannot change something. Punishment is only a deterrent if it accomplishes a change in behavior. Otherwise there is no purpose behind it.
Revenge is not a valid purpose. It is an action/reaction emotion of hate for those who have done something wrong. It teaches nothing. It modifies no behavior unless the purpose is in reincarnation and being born again with another chance.
Immortality can be a curse. I can see a situation where continuing to live might be painful. Especially if one’s close to you do not have that gift. Especially if it means crippling disease or mind destroying diseases as we age.
It can be an eye opener. For instance someone dies young, the partner lives a full life afterwards. They are now a lifetime of experience apart. Can the relationship survive? I simply do not know. A lot of it is relative to the individuals.
What of the spiritual development of immortals? How do they relate long term with their condition?
From a ordinary view, how did they mate successfully with humans? Our rules are that it cannot happen. Yet it obviously did happen at some point in our history.
At some point if Genesis and Enoch are to be believed, the species was almost destroyed by flood because we were contaminated with their “god” genes. A new Adam and a new Eve in the form of Noah and family produced a new Earth in the flooded old one. Our mortality was increased from 900 years to about 120 to the current lifespans of around 65-100 years. Something is going on there. Not sure what.
I think our ability to reproduce massive amounts of people had something to do with that. If they come back ever, I suspect that is one of the things the immortals want to change. Our reproductive ability is too high from their viewpoint.
Personally, I would go for colonization on multiple worlds rather than mass destruction of our species. Why destroy a crop simply because it is too large? I think the word is profit. Where do you profit the most from our reproductive abilities?
Over the last million years, I am certain that advances in gene technology have outstripped anything we could possibly have. Why not fix the human species. Why not fix them so that most of the genetic diseases no longer exist. Fix the existing people, not future generations. I believe that is possible by modification of the existing gene combinations.
Immortality has one fatal flaw. Change occurs rapidly in a mortal population. In an Immortal population, change is probably much slower if at all. The existing mind set is there forever. If we are taught that 2 plus 2 equals a false value like 3 or 5, then it will be difficult to change that view.
According to the Genesis account, we were made in their image. Meaning we look like them. I suggest from the mythical accounts that they were build along our lines but were much larger in size. I suggest they were indeed very long lived and possibly immortal. Like us, they had human flaws of personality. Like us, they went to war with one another. I suggest it is likely that the human/god mix did this.
Like us, they revolted against people that were different than themselves. Such as our racial situations in today’s world. I think they had people just like us. It caused conflicts and destruction and possibly Civil War right here on Earth. I suggest that is why we do not have an occupying force on this planet today of Immortals. Their immortality of the time was no defense against radiation sickness.
Our shorter lifespans and increased reproductive ability gave us an advantage on a radioactive planet. Our mutations died off, but our regular unsoiled people lived on to reproduce.
I suggest that in the past, a form of eugenics was practiced. The mutated people were cut out of the genetic pool by our various priesthoods. There are over 400 genetic related diseases in our species to this day. This is way above normal for a natural occurance.
We are one of the only if not the only species on the planet with a double chromosome on each side of the Helix. I am way out of my depth on this. It is direct evidence though of genetic manipulation somewhere in our history.
That leads me to believe that the Bible accounts are true. We were created not evolved. Though I question whether or not an evolved creature was used to create us. I think we are a miniature version of them. I think we have a limited lifespan for their entertainment. I think they are either incredibly long lived, or they are immortals.
The question in my mind is: where did they go? Are they coming back? If so, do we retain “pet status” in their society? I do not know about you, but “pet status” means they are responsible for our health care and general welfare as “pets”.
We, on the other hand, could be their slaves. That also is in the Bible. When we refer to Jesus as our “Master” we are implying a slave/master relationship.
If my interpretation of the English version of Revelations is true, then these “masters” will return. They have some ulterior motive for allowing us this much freedom of movement. I feel we are described as a crop in a farmer’s field. I think Harvest Time is coming.
One thing to me is alarming about all this. If you have a different combination of genes for every child born, you multiply that by billions or even trillions of people, what do you get?
You have a bell curve. On one side of the combinations you have losers. On the other side you have winners. One of those winners could be a god in the making. We were designed in the image of the gods. The bible refers to it in the plural. Of all those combinations, random chance is going to produce a very superior person. Just imagine all the attributes of millions of talented individuals combined into one person. That individual will likely have most of the latent ability of a god. Without proper training, that individual could be a disaster waiting to happen. It will likely produce a world dictatorship.
I believe that is the crop that Revelations is referring to. I also believe in Jesus. I think that the “gods” have no choice but to come back within the next generation or two. Or whatever. I think that these “gods” will send Jesus back to manage the situation.
In one sense, we are still their “slaves” and still we have “pet status” and in another, we are getting to be a very dangerous combination of mortality and a possible time bomb in our genes. The last time that happened we had genocide. The “gods” decided we were too dangerous to live. They killed the human/god combination race and started over with clean stock. That is if the Bible can be believed. That is if Enoch can be believed. And I do believe it is true.
These are the same species that confused the speech of mankind into multiple languages. They have superior science to our own. We are not even stone-aged in comparison.
The question becomes: If they come back, what is going to change? Are we faced with another genocide? If so, how? I suggest they will use the Sun to burn the planet. How? I do not know.
Right now the human race is a feral animal without training in how to deal with these “gods”. I hope that Jesus is the answer. I think that Jesus will train and rule the human race rather than destroy it.
In the meantime back at the ranch, another Jesus is being born. This one is the anti-Christ that must occur according to prophecy before Jesus returns.
An evacuation will probably occur before this anti-Christ comes into power. Those taken up will not face the destruction of the planet Earth. Again I have more questions than answers. Everything I have said here is based on the Bible and various myths in our history. I am very good with patterns. This is one pattern that scares me.
