Ten Commandments … another view

I find that crucifacts has an interesting and humorous take on things. This series is looking like it will be entertaining. I recommend it. Yes, click that link and see how crucifacts considers this bronze age top ten list.

 

It’s difficult to imagine making it funnier than George did… but hey, lets keep trying πŸ™‚

    It’s George Carlin, his “Invisible Guy In The Sky” bit really set me off. It amazed me at such a young age.

    I really, REALLY appreciate this. I have a lot of respect for your blog and your writings, and for you to do this, really made my day.

    Thank you!

    • Dude, I’ve been laughing through your posts for a week now. I’m really looking forward to the rest of this series πŸ™‚

  1. George Carlin is great.
    I’ve heard it contended that the First Commandment is a hangover from when the Jews believed in many Gods, and this was Yahweh throwing a strop and insisting they worship only Him. I’d like to see the evidence for that.

    To me, it’s the only way that commandment can make sense. I always wondered about it as a kid. “But there are no other Gods, so how could we worship them?” Churches interpreted as a warning against idolatry, but that doesn’t make any sense, because there’s a separate commandment against that.

    God, once you take off the God glasses and start thinking of it in terms of a man-made religion from 4,000 years ago, it all just makes sense.

    • That same story says that YHWH was the war god, had a female partner, and when the Israelites wanted to settle down and go back to living and worshipping other gods… you know, the ones in charge of agriculture and love and sewing and stuff… well, that’s when Moses went up on the mount with a bag full o’ weed. The rest, as they say, is history. The very first commandment is evidence that YHWH was no more convincing than the god of grapes or harvests etc. He had to declare it in stone tablets for all to read. It’s kind of like that Babylonian king dude, but portable. Apparently the version we all know from court house walls is version 2.0. Ole Mo got a bit pissed off and threw the originals on the ground when he saw that the god of wine and sleeping in on the Sabbath were fully vested among the Israelites by the time the old bugger could get back down the mountain. Controlling the people wasn’t as easy without the Egyptians to hate kind of keeping them altogether on the same war is holy kind of page. You just have to think what a effing good time he was at the Christmas party!
