Default Re: Things Learned From Reading Every Single Word of the Bible

It is quite possible to consider that both bloggers have it in reverse: rather than the ancient Israelites were trying to make sense of their world through a theistic mythology they were rather driven by an inner voice -- a collective inner imperative -- a pre-constructed model that commanded their sensibility about their world. This inner voice foisted itself upon their mindscape forcing its context upon the natural order of things. In other words, the world of events both social and natural served merely the outcropping of an inner sensibility. They started with god shaping their world around him and not the reverse -- making sense of a disparate and indifferent universe through a theocentric prejudice. The hallucinogenic quality of their lives reflected this collectively shared inner-life whose motif (language) consisted of external events such as the parting of the Red Sea, the pillars of fire, the vanquishing of the Egyptian army, etc. Then their historic journey traces through the meandering threads of these books of the bible this outward flow or objectification of mythopoeic thought.
