11th June 2013

“So 2012 is happening. Things don't seem much different yet. It would've been a different story if that Rapture would've happened. I'm beginning to think this whole religion thing is made up.”

Ricky Gervais

    Ricky, it’s even worse than you thought, sir. They’re making it up as they go along, and have been doing so since the dawn of mankind…

  2. Sinjin Smythe Says:

    Theologians, to be fair, point out that much of the message of the original New Testament would have been lost or misconstrued by scribes making copies, then add to that they many translations beginning with the spoken words of Christ being Aramaic to the orginal New Testament being Latin and then into the many languages since.

    So yes Jeff there are a few bad apples deliberately modifying the message for nefarious purposes but the great many who are contorting the message are good people just doing their best to spread the word.

    It is a little like saying all priests are filthy stinking rapists when it is only the greater majority of them. Remember ED affects priests too.

    The problem is the theologians themselves, sir. The rest is just their excuse for doing so.

    And I hate to say it, but the real problem with the “baby diddlers” (as Sgt. Tutuola of Manhattan SVU would call them) in the RCC has more to do with the institutional cover-up than with the fact that they exist. Such persons have always been with us.

    Watergate was a mere peccadillo, but the cover-up cost Nixon the White House.

    The mistakes in translation and copying are a pain in the ass, but what the theologians have done with them is the real crime.

    there are 5000 hand written copies of the New Testament on record today and no two of them are exactly alike according to Prof. Bart Ehrman, U of North Carolina @ Chapel Hill.

  5. Jeff Says:

    Actually, Bruce, it is 5000 handwritten Gospels (not the NT, just various versions of M, M, L & J, plus the Gospels that were not included in the NT, mostly because they would have given even more room for “error” [a.k.a. HERESY] such as the Gospels of Mary, Judas, etc). The Pauline letters, which make up the bulk of the NT are a bit more authenticated, although there is considerable heretical material in there which has to be explained away, giving the theologians all sorts of wiggle room to commit their various crimes against humanity.

  6. Bruce Williams Says:

    I should have said 5000 hand written documents of the New Testament or part of the NT. What difference does it make? The point is that there is no documentation that we can confidently refer to as authentic.
