Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 179

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pa 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.

Comment ne pas se sentir geler (frozen) quand on ensiegne une matiere eminement combustible (la psychanalyse) aupres de jeunes ames inflammables? La pertubation tentante chez des temperaments en cours de fabrication. Le pouvoir dangereux des pretres psychanalistes.

Change comes: 1. in small steps 2. in consistent effort and 3. within group support

In all ages, whether a religion claim to be monotheist or polytheist, people end up selecting a particular idol to pay allegiance to and write ex-votos to Him in order to be cured, enjoy prosperity, safety to the family, and safe travels.

The Greek Orthodox Church cannot think of more than three female saints to name girls at baptismal ceremonies: it must be either Mary, Ann, or Elisabeth; as for male kids you have an assortment of complicated and long Greek saints with plenty of X and Ch.

Ancient civilizations were never monotheists; they all had an overall God, nominally superior to the other demi-gods, but that nobody paid much attention to or prayed to Him or even remembered asking his help in ex-votos.

God El was the all encompassing God in the Middle East as was Allah in the Arab Peninsula or Zeus for the Greeks, but He never generated a dime to tribes that had exclusive rights to his worship.

Salomon worshiped Ashtarout (Astarte, the Goddess of Sidon in Lebanon), and the idol Baal had many Temples in Jerusalem while Yahweh (god of war) had only one small temple.

Centralized churches inherited pagan customs and traditions that aided a lot to the widespread propagation of multiple idols for each locality

Christian Greek Orthodox church of Byzantium persecuted the “heretic” Maronites in the year 1,000 and forced them to settle in the northern mountain chains of Lebanon. Decades later, the Maronite allied to the Church of Rome  and has been a steady ally to France ever since.

The various Protestant sects (particularly the Evangelical Zionist churches) have similarity with the Wahhabi “Moslem sect” by discarding icons and pictures of saints in their place of worship.  The Wahhabi makes it a trend to demolish any worshiping place that is decorated with pictures, icon, and shrines, whether they are Christians or Moslems
