Titbits #102

Posted on January 22, 2018

Notes and titbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 133

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Et pourtant, si on ne pend pas un recit de roman pour une histoire personnel veridique de l’auteur, comment peut-on terminer sa lecture?

On ne lit jamais un livre si on a la conviction complete que c’est seulement une fiction totale.

De nos jours, si on attend d’écrire et publier que lorsque nos parent sont morts, on l’autographe que comme des auteurs séniles auteur.

Le plus triste des dernières mémoires c’est d’avoir entrepris une aventure risquée’ et majestueuse pour se cloîtrer dans une cellule étroite et essayer d’accepter l’idée’ de la mort.

On n’entreprend pas la dernière des aventures, essayez d’accepter l’idée’ de la mort, sans perir comme un minable.

La plupart des aventuriers qui sont revenus vivants ont finis dans leurs propre prisons.

Chauvinistic Europeans are relying on entrenched illusions: They claim that it was Christianity that set the foundation of the individualistic character in Europe, a non-conformist attitude to the collective norms, rituals, and traditions, the will for self-realization rather than clinging to the behavior of rank and file…

For the same quality, would youth and students buy equitable products instead of world trade marks?

In Syria, all war-like empires invaded its land, but never any occupation force managed to administer or centrally hold any power, not even the Romans or the Arabic/Islamic Empires.

Ask the French mandated power how it quickly withdrew from Syria because of resistance to occupation: Since then, France governments and institutions hate the Syrian people and Not just any of its governments. In revenge, France ceded valuable northern Syrian lands to Turkey in 1936 (the Alexandretta city, the strategic region of Adana and a wide stretch all the way to the south-east of Turkey along the Syria borders).

Currently, Turkey wants even larger “buffer zones”, as Israel was always demanding on its borders (Not even delimited in her constitution).

Historical facts prove that there existed the Province of Judea during the Greek and Roman empires. An Israeli Kingdom never existed, but in imaginary stories to match the history of the Land in the Levant and give a semblance of history to the Jewish Bedouins down south in the desert region.

Nutcases of religious jokers

Posted on January 11, 2012

Even the most confirmed nutcases among clerics would never claim that stories in religious books were generated from eye-witness people…

So why all clerics refuse to admit that all these stories are fiction?

What’s wrong with fiction stories anyway? Just admit these stories are fiction

Fiction stories are the norm and the most appreciated form for readers and writers…

Why clerics of religions and sects insist that these horror stories were inspired by a God?

Stories of sacrificial ceremonies of virgins, kids, animals…sprinkling blood and semen around tents of potential enemies…

And killers nutcase emulating the stories by the letters, through the ages?

Religious stories were fiction stories based on common daily customs and traditions among tribes, clans and communities. They were believable because they were describing life-styles, common to the period.

They were told from generations to generations by appointed storytellers, in “broken-telephone” communication fashion, edited and transformed to match the customs and tradition of a newer period…

It was the custom of appointing a higher-power as the cause or genesis of whatever happens in life and to community events…

This higher-power was tailor-made by each tribe and community to represent its interests and securing its continuity and survival…

Many civilizations transformed the verbal transmission of the myths into writing, and these civilizations were considered to have acceded to truth and the light…

Why? Very few people could read at these ancient periods, many less  to write, and the clerics had the monopoly of this magical power.

Even today, the written material conserves a magical power of high credibility: You hear people say “It is written in black on white…Here, you read for yourself…”

Any book relegating pages of reference “source materials”, even if never read by the author, extends the illusion of credibility to any manuscript.

For example, Even Prophet Muhammad labelled the tribes in the Arabian Peninsula who didn’t yet read from a written Book, such as Christian or Jewish sects, as having not reached the truth and the light, and thus were called ignorantJahel”.

The Babylonian, Egyptian, and Phoenician civilizations did that, though what is found is in stone tablets and not many of them remain.

It happened that a group of Jews who settled Alexandria (Egypt) in 200 BC decided to gather, codify, and re-arrange the Hebrew fiction stories into easier to handle written materials.

Mind you that all these fiction stories and myths were common to the civilization in the Near-East region, and not much editing was required for the content sources.

The higher power was selected to be called Jehovah (the warrior God idol of the Jews in the City of Jerusalem during the Canaanite civilization, these bedouin tribes hired as mercenaries), and many prophets were added to the string of the biographical history.

Since then, hundred of sects split, sorting out and re-editing the fiction stories they preferred, as representative of their culture, the accredited stories, the apocryphal (hidden truth), the heretic, the devilish…burning the books that do not suit the sect…

Why governments have to keep subsidizing clerics and their institutions?

Are current fiction stories not good enough or versatile enough?

Why Presidential contenders have to use religious beliefs as the main dividing line in the campaign?

Why children in schools have to memorize these fiction stories and be graded accordingly?

Are current fiction stories for kids not good enough?

Can we stop these charades?

Can we live in peace?
