Atom Atom’s Adam’s Apple

All right, gang – back by popular demand, it’s time once again to hang onto your hadrons, fasten your safety quarks, buckle up your buckeyballs, and I now give you in real spacetime continuum – (may I have a Big Bang, please) …

BANG!

big bang

The ONE – the Only – the I Am that I Am atomically and anatomically smashing-

Adam Atom!

Adam Atom

Jee it’s great to be back. I know it’s only been a week since the last episode but it feels like ice ages. Anyway, today I want to take y’all back to the Garden of Eden. Garden of Eden

I was there, ya know, and look … see, there’s misconceptions goin’ down the past cupla milleniums – the church, they got it all goofed up.

 

Snake and AppleFirst of all, the absurd notion that Eve, following the instructions of a wily, conniving, evil serpent (that later got falsely identified with Satan) fed me an apple. Well it wasn’t an apple. Apples grow on deciduous trees and we didn’t have those back then. But that’s beside the point. The story goes that I, that is, Adam (I was a part of the first man, that’s why I kept the name) hunkered down on it with a big bite and it got stuck when I tried to swallow, forming that familiar lump in every man’s throat. Supposed to be an eternal reminder that we’re all a bunch of rotten apple bad boys, we ate the forbidden fruit and sinned, Eve was a naughty girl and women are forever the temptresses and potential downfall of all that is good and righteous in a man, and all that ridiculous religious rhetoric. The whole Original Sin thang.

Well, yeah, I mean the flesh is the flesh, so being born into the body we’re all predisposed to “sin.”

Second misconception. “Sin” is not ultimately a “good” or “bad” thing. In the absolute sense, good/bad, up/down, right/left, all those dualities are relative and only apply to dimensional dochotomies. The original Hebrew word for “sin” translates accurately as having “missed the mark.” Just off base, bad aim, poor shot, all that – but not necessarily “bad” as opposed to “good.” So don’t go beatin’ yourself over the head when you make stupid mistakes. You’re not all bad just cuz you botch things up sometimes, peeps. Just fix your aim and move on, okay? Jeez, you humans can be such melodrama junkies. Get over yourselves, willya?

Oh and back to that serpent? The one that later the church dubbed as the Devil and then went so far as to equate Lucifer with Satan? satan 2

Good lord – what a crock of bull that pile of holy hooey is! Lucifer is never mentioned in the original Hebrew Bible. The name Lucifer came about accidentally when some moron was commisioned to translate the Bible into Latin and mistranslated the name “Satan,” (in latin “heylel”), to “Lucifer”. Heylel & Lucifer have two completely different meanings. Lucifer meaning “bearer of light” – certainly not how one would picture Lucifer the way he’s been demonized by organized religion! In fact, Lucifer is a translation of Jesus Christ (the Bright and Morning Star), but since this idiot made the error (a sin, remember?), Satan has continually been referred to as Lucifer.

And that one (only) time in the Latin version of the Old Testament, in Isiaiah, where the name “Lucifer” is used? Wasn’t meant to mean a fallen angel. Fallen Angel

No. In the original Hebrew text, the fourteenth chapter of Isaiah is not about a fallen angel, but about a fallen Babylonian king, who, during his lifetime had persecuted the children of Israel. It contains no mention of Satan, either by name or reference.

But anyway, not gonna belabor a bunch of theological stuff any longer today, don’t worry – not takin’ y’all to church. Atomic High Mass is over. Besides, the way this little talk is going I might get burned at the quarks for heresy. (wink)

No, what I really came back here to Mesopotamia for was, soon Lord AnuAnu the Sumerian Sky God and his giant Planet X Nibiruian cronies are about to land. I want to let you all in on the orgies goings on between them and the ancient pre-Sumerians about 10,000 years ago.  It’ll be a sexy post, promise ya that. What you say? What am I talking about? For a clue, read in Genesis 6:2, where

“the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”

What!!!??

Yup. Back in the days when giants roamed the earth. Ever see a ten foot tall Nibiruian hump an itty bitty hominid? Blog in next week for the continuing epic exploits in the –

Adventures of Adam Atom!

    A most interesting and informative post. You’ve straightened out a lot of confusion for me. Thanks. It’s like when the monks translating the hebrew went back to the original and realized the word was celebrate, not celibate. Translations can lose a lot.

    • theoldsilly / Oct 5 2009 9:54 am

      Woa – really? He the Old Silly learned a new one today, bro!

  2. Jane Kennedy Sutton / Oct 5 2009 7:17 am

    As usual, I always learn something from Adam Atom and he always leaves me anxiouly awaiting the next adventure.

  3. L. Diane Wolfe / Oct 5 2009 7:51 am

    Interesting!
    And I wonder what fruit they picked????

  4. Elizabeth Spann Craig / Oct 5 2009 8:01 am

    An interesting Atomic High Mass!

    And, if that’s the definition of sin (missing the mark), then I’m even more sinful than I thought!

  5. Crystal Clear Proofing / Oct 5 2009 8:44 am

    Highly enjoyable post and NO I can’t say the title of today’s post ten times…. is that a sin then??? LOL !!

  6. John Standish / Oct 5 2009 10:38 am

    Great stuff here, Marv – well, Adam – lol. I think the Catholic/organized church as done a great deal of harm to the original messages over the past 2 thousand years. Thanks for the insights here, and I’ll definitely be back for the Lord Anu visit!

      Cheating, Cactus – CHEATING! lol – you’re SUCH a naughty sinful girl! 😉

  8. Stephen Tremp / Oct 5 2009 11:22 am

    Its a good thing I can communicate via the written word as my tongue is now tied in a knot. I’ll never try to say that again ten times fasr.

    • theoldsilly / Oct 5 2009 3:40 pm

      LOL – yeah, you know I hadn’t thought of the tongue tie thinky when I composed the title, but when I tried saying it even twice in a row I realized its mighty potential in that genre. 😉

  9. quirkyloon / Oct 5 2009 12:13 pm

    “atomic high mass?”

    Ha! I loved it!

    Purdy funny, Mr. Marv. Purdy funny!

    That Adam Atom, he is a quarky character, ain’t he?

    • theoldsilly / Oct 5 2009 3:12 pm

      LOL – only the Quirkster could recognize a Quarkster! 😉

  10. Elspeth Antonelli / Oct 5 2009 12:15 pm

    I can say it, but then I went to theatre school and tongue twisters were part of an elocution course. Thank you for making it all very clear. Translations can be tricky; good that Adam was around!

    Elspeth

    • theoldsilly / Oct 5 2009 3:13 pm

      You welcome, Elspeth, and wow – now that’s some effective training. I can’t get past the 2nd or 3rd rep before my tongue turns into a mangled mush! 😦

  11. Stanley Berber / Oct 5 2009 3:04 pm

    Sheesh – tongue tied to say the least! I need some of that training Elspeth took! lol Great episode, I learn something while being entertained every time with these Adam Atom post. Cool job, dude. 😉

  12. yvonne lewis / Oct 5 2009 3:16 pm

    Another wonderful episode. enjoyed very much.

    “Sin” is not ultimately a “good” or “bad” thing.

    Okay, so, let me get this straight. I can “sin,” and it’s okay? Testing the reverse, as all good theories must be tested for the reverse, is it true that, if I do good works, that too is irrelevant?

    Now, I know, Luther would agree with the second part…as you know, he espoused that man is saved by faith alone. The Catholic Church didn’t much like that idea, they wanted you to buy you way to heaven, as you know, and made it pretty tough on Martin.

    But, I’ve never much thought about the reverse. Hmmm. Wonder what Luther would say.

    Best Regards, Galen

      Weighty comment, with some thought provocation to it, Galen. Has the makings of another post, methinks! 😉

  14. Philip Harris / Oct 5 2009 5:57 pm

    One should now understand why we are admonished not to judge. We always judge something ad good or bad and yet, Jesus clearly said DO NOT JUDGE. What is a judgment? Just as in sin, the meaning implied by the Church, actually all churches, is WRONG! To judgment is not to determining good or bad. Judgment means, FINAL DECISION. In other words, do not make a final decision about anything because, if you do, as you judge, so it is done unto you. In other words, whatever you make a final decision on becomes your reality.

    So if you miss the mark you have not done wrong and YOU will be wrong if you judge as wrong. Law of Attraction as taught by Jesus.

    If you read the first two books of the Waking God Trilogy (book 3 in progress), you will discover that religion is the greatest lie ever perpetuated. It is like farting-kids will point the finger at some other kid to hide the fact they did it. Well, religion does the same thing. They say the greatest lie is believing that evil, Satan, Lucifer, does not exist. The reality is, they are the ones that farted and have left the world in a stinking mess. And yes, Jesus has another side of the coin, come to be known as Lucifer. No up with no down, and yet both are called the morning star.

    • theoldsilly / Oct 6 2009 6:33 am

      Phew – do I smell a fart? LOL – figured YOU would have 3 or 4 cents to chime in on this one, my friend. And a good and mighty wind this comment is indeed! (smile). Hey I’m SO looking forward to book 3 in the trilogy – any ETA to announce yet? You KNOW you can count on a feature post here when it’s released.

  15. ReformingGeek / Oct 5 2009 11:13 pm

    I think some men “sin” when they pee.

    Yep. I go the message right, didn’t it?

    Go, Adam, go!

    😉

    • theoldsilly / Oct 6 2009 6:33 am

      LOL – guilty as charged, Reforming One!

  16. Enid Wilson / Oct 6 2009 3:44 am

    Like the Adam’s apple explanation. But I didn’t seem to meet a lot of boys, good or bad, who like to eat apple.
