ITT we will look into the biblical story and its meaning, we will compare it to other mythologies and legends and see how it all fits and what we can confirm with the mainstream narrative

Pic related. My theory it depicts knowledge, as those people are the keeper of knowledge, or bringer of that.
The mayan/aztec one seems to depicts quetzacoatl I assume which is said to have brought that for the aztecs.

Göbekli tepe apparently talks about a comet bringing civilization.

In case of the sumerian i suppose it is enki
>Enki (/ˈɛŋki/; Sumerian: dEN.KI(G)𒂗𒆠) is the ancient Sumerian god of water, knowledge (gestú, literally "ear"), mischief, crafts (gašam), and creation (Nudimmud: nu, likeness, dim mud, make beer)

Same role Quetzacoatl took, bringing knowledge, or Satan with the apple. Prometheus who brought the fire very well could be the same enthity, Lucifer. The Kabba in Mecca supposedly contains a meteorite, which might be the one Göbekli Tepe speaks of or Satan that was thrown to earth
but i assume there is more to it

>The most common method of fossilization is called permineralization, or petrification. After an organism's soft tissues decay in sediment, the hard parts — particularly the bones — are left behind.
>Water seeps into the remains, and minerals dissolved in the water seep into the spaces within the remains, where they form crystals. These crystallized minerals cause the remains to harden along with the encasing sedimentary rock.
>In another fossilization process, called replacement, the minerals in groundwater replace the minerals that make up the bodily remains after the water completely dissolves the original hard parts of the organism.

So basically they get buried by some mud which is under water. Assuming a great flood hit them like the one in the bible or the countless other floodmyths across the world, wouldnt that meet the conditions?

this pyramid they dug out appearently is 6k years old and on the bottom it has written "the son of the creator comes from here". however since this is a really old language (and this is purely my ignorant assumption) i dont think thats what it says literally, but more something like "son of creator comes here" or something similar basically even back then talking about the messiahs, the son of God, (jesus?) coming to earth.

The Native Americans have legends of a pale prophet that healed the people and teached them. Was this Jesus?

one theory of mine is that the messiah came to all cultures in different forms. In the middle east he came as jesus, Son of God, performing miracles and teaching about the most high.
the nordic and greek myths I feel are distorted versions of the same story, having the most high, God, as the most high god with angel being lower gods.
he came to the nordics as the mighty warrior which was valued among those people (and again son of God) thor
in greece he came again as the son of god, hercules, getting rid of the monsters that plagues them for so long.
in america he came as shaman and healer
and in asia he came as buddha, as a teacher where the people or he himself did focus more on the self and the nature of reality than God and angels and so on.

i know this is pretty heretic, but it would make sense if he would appear as whatever is most respected in those cultures.
>Jesus took them all by stealth, for he did not appear as he was, but in the manner in which they would be able to see him. He appeared to them all. He appeared to the great as great. He appeared to the small as small. He appeared to the angels as an angel, and to men as a man

Good morning /his/ looking at the Waco Siege, getting interested in it, your guys' thoughts on the legality and morality of assaulting what was basically a church?

Possession of an automatic firearm is not inherently illegal. Especially if one possesses an FFL or the appropriate tax stamps. Now the often argument falls upon whether or not they were using m16 Sears to be combined with ar15 lowers. This would be illegal except for two things:

The branch Davidians possesses a FFL and ran a gun store out of the compound called the mag bag.

And two, you would have to prove ill intent given that they had a FFL. Ie. That the FFL holder was not intending to sell them to government officers for the purpose of their duties nor that he possessed them for personal use such as luxury/runnimg a gun range.

Korean swore the paperwork was done legally. He invited the ATF in to inspect both the guns and the papers. They refused. They also conveniently staged the siege while the ATF holder was out of state selling guns at a gun show.
From federal agents to religious wingnuts, nothing of value was lost.
I really don't understand how someone can ignore how shitty David was. The ATF ended up having the blood of children on their hands, you don't need to make him a dindu to make your case.

Why has Christianity and religion become moribund in Europe?
46 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
There is a historical trend of an increasing amount of physical explanations for physical phenomena rather than being explained as a miracle of God.

Granted, you could argue for the guiding hand of God rather than the acting hand of God, but the above is the mentality.

>Why has Christianity and religion become moribund in Europe?

Probably first and foremost because it's a lie perpetuated by frauds and blasphemers. Most people don't like being lied to - much less by morally depraved mass murderers.

So why is Islam on the rise?

No, ass is wiped with the hand+water only, or a sponge of dry luffa fibers (traditional bath sponge). Have you seen a banana leaf? Wouldn't work.

Banana leaves are cleaned with hot water and lemon before using, so are hands. Say what you want about the defecation issues and poverty and lack of education, but there's nothing wrong with the method of eating.

You're welcome.
Like I said, they most likely used their hands... I just wanted to point out that India used to be an OK country, and they should pull themselves out of this shit and fight the impending tide of China which is sure to come for their land at some point.

>Richard led a cavalry charge deep into the enemy ranks in an attempt to end the battle quickly by striking at Henry Tudor himself.[150]

>Accounts note that King Richard fought bravely and ably during this manoeuvre, unhorsing Sir John Cheyne, a well-known jousting champion, killing Henry's standard bearer Sir William Brandon and coming within a sword's length of Henry Tudor before being surrounded by Sir William Stanley's men and killed.[151] The Burgundian chronicler Jean Molinet says that a Welshman struck the death-blow with a halberd while Richard's horse was stuck in the marshy ground.[152] It was said that the blows were so violent that the king's helmet was driven into his skull.[153] The contemporary Welsh poet Guto'r Glyn implies a leading Welsh Lancastrian Rhys ap Thomas, or one of his men, killed the king, writing that he "killed the boar, shaved his head".[152][154][155]
