Prof Serene Jones –
Just read an interview in which you described your theological beliefs of biblical (& likely other inputs) origin.
From the interview article I say bravo!
As to the “rebuttal” at interview conclusion – he espouses the same old saws as always.
The ‘bible’ and all in it are contrivances of early fiction writers – story tellers; as a whole massaged time & again by similar scribes ‘putting their two cents in’... And translated – over & over again. Who KNOWS what the original the original language was trying to convey?
It’s ALL approximate.
Then discovered ‘Hey! Bet we could make a living off of this!’. Didn’t take long either…
Humanity at large globally, would’ve been better off if they took responsibility for their own actions instead of attaching it to some unseen – unknown dieties & literal THREAT of perdition, damnation et al.
It’s unfortunate that billions are living their lives within this attachment – as THIS – Ultimately will be mass destruction OF humans BY humans.
Most have come to thoroughly deserving of it by their very own ‘hand and mind’ as it were. WELL deserved at that.
Thank you Prof S. Jones.
