Catholic Church Waging War on Women and Gays

“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

Finally, two other couples were born of the union of Geb and Nut; Osiris and Isis, and Seth and Nephthys, who were in part complementary, in part antagonistic, and seemed to represent the passage from the cosmological to the terrestrial order of things.

Divine Families and Myths

The Heliopolitan system

With the navigation of the terrestrial Nile in mind, the Egyptians associated the sun in its course with Re’s barque crossing the ocean of the sky. They even imagined that two boats existed, distinguishing between a day boat (mandjet) and a night boat (mesek-tet), the sun-god passing from one to the other at the critical point in his daily journey.

Although the Egyptians had many different creation myths, they all agreed that the universe came from the primordeal waters of Nun, and many legends suggested that everything would slip back under these waters at the end of the world.

As we can see, the word "Nun" has a long history that started with religion and continues with religion. The word morphed from one meaning to another along it's journey, conspired in the minds of men with vivid imaginations and not one shred of proof in anything they wrote.

The Memphite System

But such as it is, this account enables us to discern the main lines of the doctrine, which were undoubtedly formulated by Memphite theologians about the time of the Third Dynasty.

The system centres round Ptah, the god of Memphis, in his role of demiurge or maker of the universe. Ptah originally existed before everything else and had his being in Nun, the primeval ocean found in other cosmogonies.

If modern trusting believers in their own religious dogmas would do more study of ancient people putting faith in their dogmas, my guess is, they would recognize their own stupidity as they laugh at the stupidity of the ancients.

From my perspective, believing that a god created Adam out of the dust of the earth, and Eve out of Adam's rib couldn't be sillier if the authors had tried.

Yet people of today accept that myth as absolute truth, and believe they are "wise" to put faith IN the myth.

WHY would a god be the main instigator in a plan of entrapping sinners in physical bodies and then condemn the sinners for falling short of the god's own mark of perfection?

If you don't see the stupidity, there's something wrong with you that no medication on earth can cure.

Note the male god and how he fertilized himself to produce the first "divine couple."
No doubt the people of that era placed their faith in the myths, just as believers of today place their faith in their very own "specialized" myths.
But the first divine couple in this ancient story has a twist. They were NOT people, as is the tale of Adam and Eve.

Divine Families and Myths
The Heliopolitan system
The town of Heliopolis, situated not far from the head of the Delta, was a highly important religious centre from very early times. Here, at some indefinite time, certainly earlier than the Third Dynasty, a theological sytem was developed in which the local god Atum, played the part of the primeval god.
This system laid down that in the beginning there was nothing but immense chaos, Nun, thought to be an ocean or shapeless magma containing, none the less, potential life. In this chaos there had been a conscious principle in existence since antiquity began, the god Atum, whose name, meaning ‘the Whole’,‘the Complete’, emphasized his abstract and somewhat metaphysical nature.
This god was the first of a divine line, and each ensuing generation represented one aspect or element of the universe. Alone and unaided by any feminine counterpart, Atum succeeded in fertilizing himself and in producing the first divine couple, Shu and Tefnut.
Good morning June.

I had to go out quickly late yesterday afternoon and didn't have a chance to say sign out.

What I find interesting is that there are so many things in common. In this case the magma/chaos to the darkness of the creation in the Abrahamic religions. And of course the self-fertilzing of Atum to bring about the first couple, as in Adam and Eve....

Aren't these all just ideas that when transmitted via language are adapted into differing cultures?

And equally ridiculous are the new Pagan gods that are made out of fluffy lovey-dovey natures ... that walk hand in hand and side by side with the believers, and never even nudge consciences to go one way or the other. The decisions are all left up to the believers to make their own ways through life, as the gods smile and cuddle and love "unconditionally."

The Abrahamic deities are bullies to offenders, and the modernized Pagan deities love everybody. One extreme to the other.

Manipulators with over-active imaginations create nothing but stupidity.

All the believers who have been raptured, or snatched away, will meet the Lord face to face, in the air.
I have a particular peeve against this guy. He is the one who really started the latest "end-of-the-world" fanatics when he predicted everything would end in the 70's..,then he postponed it until the 80.s, etc., etc., until now.

He's getting old now, and his followers are fewer no doubt as they are dying off. But look at the damage he inflicted with the leaders he inspired in the the futility of doing anything until the rapture....Oh such a waste!

In ancient time the sanskrit word Krsna became the Greek and Roman word Christos, which is now the English word Christ.

Yes ... It's called dogma-theft with a twist. They banked on the earlier myths and then changed the myths to suit the new supposed images to their own "tastes."

For instance ... the old Pagan gods were cruel, and needy. They expected blood-sacrifices of humans and non-human animals in the flames and otherwise, or they would ruin crops, cause diseases, kill people with lightning-stikes, etc. But observe now how nice the gods and goddesses have become.

Ridiculous blather.

That's not true. Did you do any research on the subject? There are thousands of families waiting to adopt children through Catholic Charities and thousands who have already adopted. Did you know that because Catholic Charities believes that children should idealy be in a home with a stable mother and father, that gay groups have forced them out of this service in MA and are working on other states? What is their message?
Ideals and practicality....As the U.S. has been sinking in its educational practices in the world, it has broken down with its abilities to compete in the world.

In other words, there are less jobs and less employed people. Therefore the ideals which would hold for yesterday of a stable home are not the same today, and for tomorrow.

There are going to be more homeless, more orphaned, more misery until education is finds its way back into the equation.

I wonder at what time in history the word "Nun" changed from Nun, the primeval ocean to nun as in female Pagan-priestess?

To believe that a Pagan-priestess was as powerful as an "ocean" was taking on quite a self-image of "power" ... rather comparable to humans being able to "move mountains" if only they have "complete faith."
