    Religion:
    The Golden Thread Deconstructing Abrahamic Religions
    This is a new religion.

    The tenets of The Golden Thread are as follows

    1/ We should be fruitful to self and others. We should encourage fruitfulness in self and others. Being fruitful to self means adopting the mental and physical condition of looking after oneself, guarding and evaluating one's thoughts and outwardly being amenable and personable.. being fruitful to others means helping and encouraging others, doing all what one can to make the lot of others more bearable, helping them to thrive; family, friends, communities.

    2/ We should not believe in divine punishment in this life, i.e. removal of fear

    3/ We should treat all others as equals as God blessed all people equally.

    4/ we should discard religious custom and tradition and encourage others to do the same.

    5/ We have freewill

    6/ We should multiply

    7/ We should avoid eating live animals

    8/ we should not have fear nor guilt, The ultimate conclusion to this thesis is one that will cause consternation in religious circles. Religion was a human creation that is both unnecessary, inasmuch as humanity does not need it and misleading inasmuch as neither Judaism Christianity nor Islam gives us the true nature of our relationship with God. indeed, if anything they take us far away from our Creator. We kill in the name of God, we fight wars in the name of God, we bow down, pray and worship God in different ways and yet God never instructed us to do any of these things. The only true path for each and every one of us to return to God is to abandon religion forever and a good start would be to remove everything in your Bible from genesis 9:19 onwards!

    9/ We believe that we are responsible for everything that happens to us . It may not be our fault when the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune rain down on us BUT we ARE responsible for the way we react to them. In that way we are responsible for all the things that happen to us good and bad and this ownership will set you free.

    10/ If we feel a need to pray to God then we should first state that we are aware that we have freewill and that God does not get involved with worldly affairs. Then pray your way.

    The theology of The Golden Thread can be found in the opening chapter of my book The Golden Thread an excerpt of which follows in the next post

    Religion:
    The Golden Thread Deconstructing Abrahamic Religions
    Biblical Proof That There Is No God on Earth
    Introduction


    Two things must be made clear from the outset. Firstly, It must be said that It does not matter whether the reader of this thesis believes in God or not, benefit will still be gained. Secondly it does not matter who exactly God is, rather it is His nature that is important to understand. Some say, and I am not one of them, that God is either Enki and Enlil or some combination of the two Sumerian Gods, hence Elohim, the plural. It is impossible for us to find the truth; except we do know that The Sumerian story of the Flood is the oldest legend of that event and that Jewish scribes once lived in Sumer. No, it matters not who God is. The point is that God is our Creator.

    Now the reader of this thesis might be a theist or an atheist or an agnostic, but all three groups will benefit from a greater understanding of, I believe, the true nature of God. For example, the atheist does not believe in the existence of God but will still find the results of this thesis relevant in some respects. He or she will feel at least to some extent vindicated in their beliefs, at least in this life if not the next. The agnostic will find it a light perhaps to illuminate either side of the fence that they sit upon, but its strongest effect may well be felt by the theist, the believer in a Creator. Regardless, all types of reader should keep an open mind.

    Surprisingly the Old testament Bible is very clear that whilst there is a Creator, scientifically unproven of course in our times, this Creator does not get involved with, nor intervene in this world. In other words, whilst God sees all things God has given us freewill and the responsibility of dealing ourselves with the wickedness that some commit

    That is not my religious opinion. It is the very Bible that tells this to us, and the purpose of this thesis summary is to show you the logic that has led to the above claim and the way in which we have all been so misled. Basically, Semitic religions have misrepresented the facts to us, and that God has not been with us in this world since Genesis

    Starting at the beginning with the right Objective

    It is vital to get two things absolutely correct when you are setting out to find or discover something, like the truth of things. Firstly, one must make sure one has the objective clearly defined in the mind’s eye; nothing else will do. In this thesis the main objective is the understanding of the true nature of God, especially in relation to humanity and our world. Secondly one really does have to find the beginning of things and start there

    Understanding The true nature of God

    For myself I do believe for any true theist God would be Perfection and would create and treat us all equally. God would allow us freewill but regardless of this God would have to be omnipotent omnipresent, omnipresent all-powerful, all-knowing, all-seeing and perfect to be God and nothing less would suffice. God would never be towards his creations, weak, indecisive, violent, destructive, vengeful, demanding of followers, praise and worship, angry and so on. Why not? Surely if God were all-powerful, God could be anything that God wishes, and this must be true but to us his creations he is as an ever-loving all-powerful parent that has blessed us with free-will. It is a difference between "could" and "would". God created our world, blessed us all to be fruitful and multiply and has no wish ever to destroy us, no matter how bad we get. At this point some people might bring up the Flood, but that will be dealt with later. God was, is and will ever be beneficial to us.

    It is not easy to consider God, given the duality of our nature and our world. We live in a world of life and death, good and bad, growth and shrinkage. We may well be represented by the number two, but God is represented only by the number one. God has no duality, no blessings and curses, only blessings. While we grow and wither, God only grows. While we wax and wane, God only waxes. While we can be love and hatred, God is only love. How can this be when we are made in the image of God I hear the theist cry? It is because we are made in His image, not a carbon copy. The statement that we are created in the image of G‑d means that we were formed as a reflection of our Creator’s attributes and characteristics. This cannot be taken to mean that we literally look, feel or think like G‑d does, because He has no form and is not limited in any way. Rather, we are like a one-dimensional reflection of a real object. From the reflection we can have an inkling of the original, but the reflection is literally nothing in comparison to the original.

    This is expressed in many ways: some physical, others psychological, and still others are purely in the spiritual realm for example. All other creations are doing exactly what they are programmed to do and cannot change their natures. Only the human being has the power to grow, mature and change, because he or she is a reflection of God, who is unlimited. Man was endowed with the power to think independently, to peer into the future and to make rational decisions. This is a reflection of G‑d’s infinite wisdom, but unlike God, we are flawed


    Starting at the beginning. The Truth of Things

    If any person attempts to seek the truth of things mid-way through an event or happenstance or at its end, then that person is no more than a fool. The beginning of things is the simplest form, the root. Everything is conceived pure or with the purest of intentions and only later gets corrupted. Note the monk who stripped of all worldly wants and desires can begin to see things for what they really are. With a firm picture in my mind’s eye of this all-powerful, ALL KNOWING AND ALL-SEEING benign creator I decided to use the Old Testament a book I have been familiar with since childhood i.e. the beginning of things to start at. I could have started anywhere I suppose, in the Old Testament, The New Testament, The Koran but no I sensibly decided to start at the beginning and I must say that as every Muslim really does believe that it was Allah who wrote the Old Testament for the Jews I doubt that Muslims would object to my using, in their eyes Allah’s first holy book. What’s more I’m going to use the part that The Jewish nation were NOT accused of tampering with, by both Muslims and Christians i.e. Genesis. I doubt Christianity would object either. After all my mission was to find God and Christianity reveres the Old Testament almost as much as the New Testament, I’m sure they would agree that the God of Genesis is God as certainly would the members of the ever-faithful and long-suffering Jewish religion.

    To me anything in Genesis, i.e. the first, the beginning the original trumps verses that appear later in the Bible and we shall also see why this is true. It must also be remembered that Jewish scribes were at great pains to record everything as accurately as possible, especially in the early parts of the Bible.

    I picked up my Bible turned to Genesis and began to read for the ten thousandth time, all the while hoping this time to catch a glimpse of the magnificence that is meant to be God

    Adam And Eve

    The story of the Creation in my opinion doesn’t do my image of the Creator enough justice and it wasn’t until Adam and Eve did I sense the benevolent magnificence of God, which can be explained thus. God made man and woman and wished to give them freewill i.e. the right and ability to make choices. You can’t descend from heaven and just give your people free-will, their awe of you will make them instant slaves.

    God wanted to give Adam and Eve freewill, wanted them to be free. He warned them not to eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, on pain of death BUT being perfect as we have already posited God surely knew they would disobey.. God had sent one of His creations to offer the other choice to Eve i.e. to have knowledge of good and evil and all that entailed, and the serpent made it an enticing choice, to know what is good and what is not. Eve made her choice and the exit from the garden was not a punishment, it was our choice. We chose to be free of the simple life and instead chose a much more arduous and yet more fulfilling path than just tending animals in the Garden. We were not tricked. We obtained what we wanted and still do, we obtained knowledge and self-awareness. i.e. before decision was made Adam and Eve like animals had no knowledge of themselves, no ability to see themselves. Like animals they were unable to stand outside themselves and view themselves objectively. We humans have been given that gift.

    Of course, you must understand this is all my interpretation of the story but I wager that you will be unable to give me another interpretation in keeping with the idea of God as perfection. God didn’t tempt Adam and Eve. For what purpose would he do that if God already knew, being so all-seeing that they would disobey? Utter illogical nonsense! Yet that is what we have been taught for centuries. Why would we assume that God is either flawed or not so powerful? There is only one vaguely relevant counter –argument to my logic and it goes like this “The Lord works in mysterious ways” Well that is not a good enough argument in my opinion.

    Another question one could ask is Why God, who could have created perfection did not make us perfect? The answer is simple. In the garden of Eden, we had perfection, no worries, fear, stress, dangers and so on but we chose freewill and self-awareness. We chose the world we now live in. we have freewill and that means we are not beholden nor ruled by a higher power. We have self-awareness which means we are aware of ourselves and the world around us. Unlike an animal which is set on a simple system of surviving i.e. by eating, sleeping defecating and procreating, we humans, should have no the fear of being controlled and because of self-awareness we have higher minds and more complex thought processes. Our understanding of ourselves and our species grows ever deeper; because we have the capacity to study it. Freewill and self-awareness are two gifts from our Creator to us and religion has stolen these from us, telling us how to worship, and how to think of God. ,


    The next story in The Bible is that of Cain and Abel

    Cain And Abel

    Cain kills his brother for offering a better sacrifice to God and God spared him, showing mercy by marking him so that no one would kill him as he wandered, banished. Again, God knew that Cain would do such a thing and the mercy and compassion shown is a lesson to humanity, One could reach the conclusion that not only would God spare a murderer but also one that murders out of jealousy borne from the comparison of sacrifices made to God. If one considers the story of Cain and Abel carefully the sacrifices to appease God are less important to God than showing mercy to one who not only murders but also failed in his sacrifice.

    Noah The Flood and the Nephilim.

    There then follows the story of the Flood where it is made clear to us that God destroyed the Nephilim, evil creatures of abomination that were inter-breeding with us and causing the wickedness. Those that were destroyed were not humans but the spawn of the interrelationships between humanity and the Nephilim.

    But it’s the chapter after the Flood that is the key part of the whole Bible.. This is where the truth of things lies and the simplest way to show anyone who studies this thesis, exactly what I have seen is to use the emphasis that the words gave to me, not the other way around. After all I wasn’t studying the words themselves nor the letters, just their meaning as spoken by Perfection.

    Religion:
    The Golden Thread Deconstructing Abrahamic Religions
    Genesis Chapter 9

    [9:1] God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.

    The flood has subsided, Noah and his sons have been saved.. All that remains are the descendants of us all Noah and his sons, the Fathers of the whole human race. God or if you are Muslim, Allah then blesses all of us, through our ancestors equally.

    This is the first blessing that God was to give to all of us and it is quite remarkable. Note the lack of religious instruction. Note the lack of any conditions attached. Remember how you should be reading this with God’s perfection in your mind’s eye Ask yourself how come God made no rules on how we were to behave or worship him? At this key stage? Why is this?

    God’s first and only blessing to the WHOLE of humanity carries great weight. Could it be that God could not see our future and therefore got His blessing wrong, or perhaps God forget to tell us about religious duties and made a mess of the whole opportunity. We can’t accept a God that gets it wrong, isn’t so all-powerful and makes a mess of things. that would not be God. It is more than reasonable to argue that God should be perfect, perfection. God should know all about our future and our past and tailor the blessing accordingly which clearly is what happened. We are all equally blessed, especially when God must have known that the descendants of Shem would become Semites i.e. Jews and Muslims, no more blessed, despite their religions, than the descendants of Ham or Japheth.


    . But humans are not equal are we?. We are not born into materially the same set of circumstances BUT we are all equally God-blessed, through our ancestors, the ancestors of the whole world. God didn’t get it wrong God is always right The key point is that we all have the same value in the eyes of God even if our material circumstances differ wildly . Ergo an atheist is as equally blessed as a Rabbi or Imam, in the eyes of God, without any dispute. Remember this is Gods first and only blessing to the whole of humanity. God could have said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Those who bow down to me and wear hats will get to the heaven, the rest hell”. We could therefore conclude that God does not endorse religion. Of course, it would be argued that many later verses contain all the prescriptive elements of religion as given to God by Moses BUT there is none of it in the First Blessing. Perhaps the later parts were added or amended? That is not such a wild theory.

    Following on from genesis 9:1 we read 9:2-9:4

    [9:2] The fear and dread of you shall rest on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the air, on everything that creeps on the ground, and on all the fish of the sea; into your hand they are delivered. [9:3] Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; and just as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. [9:4] Only, you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its soul and blood.

    The meaning is clear Don’t eat flesh with its soul and blood i.e. don’t eat live animals is sound advice and may contain a reference related to health and medicine but for now it is not one that we are concerned with..

    [9:5] For your own lifeblood I will surely require a reckoning: from every animal I will require it and from human beings, each one for the blood of another, I will require a reckoning for human life.

    This is a reference to the after-life and the day of Judgement No one on this Earth can prove whether or not there is an after-life but according to God who is infallible there is something more for us It would not be wild to assume that if we hold God's blessing to our hearts and be fruitful to ourselves and others we would not walk down the wrong path but it is the next verse that should make us reflect a while.

    [9:6] Whoever sheds the blood of a human, by a human shall that person's blood be shed; for in his own image God made humankind.

    God doesn’t kill nor punish us. Read the verse again…Whoever sheds the blood of man through man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God He made man.

    What God is saying here is so very clear. “If you do the very worst of crimes i.e. murder then even then I am not going to intervene and cause holy fire to sweep down from the heavens." In other words, God is not going to punish the murderer in this life even though he or she is acting in a manner contradictory to the Blessing where God blessed us all equally to be fruitful and multiply.. God is saying "Because humans were made in my image then it’s up to humans to try the murderer be fair as I was with Adam and Eve and Cain the murderer who killed his brother and yet I spared him. Give your murderer a fair hearing and sentence him. If you kill him then it is your right”

    The implications of this are far-reaching. Anyone who kills in the name of God is not killing in the name of God at all. We were all equally blessed. As God is not orchestrating any of these killings we can see right through the phoney theology of religions that urge us to shed blood in the name of unless again one blasphemes by assuming incorrectly that God got his blessing wrong.

    This verse is one of the verses used by religion to teach the philosophy of an eye for an eye i.e. they’ve killed your ancestors so you should kill them. But the verse does not mean that in any way. Look at the words and tell me how that means an eye for an eye. The often-overlooked part of the verse are the words for in the image of God He made man. The point is that God had already forgiven Adam and Eve for disobeying him and Cain for killing his brother. God had already shown us what mercy is and Noah and his Sons would have understood.

    If the worst of crimes is punishable by us, not God, what about all the rest of our crimes against each other. I believe it is right to say that the punishment for these crimes would also be down to us. In fact God doesn’t seem to be involved or want to be involved in our daily life, despite what later religions preach to us and it’s the later religious nonsense that would be thrown at you if you were to dare stand up and say that we are all equally blessed and God does not punish us but then in my opinion, the later religious writings are just man-made echoes of the earlier stories and poor ones at that. What would you value more do you want the original or a poor, twisted, added to and unoriginal copy?

    Of course, counter arguments to this conclusion could be ..

    “But in the Torah later The Israelites with God’s help killed all sorts of tribes.”

    These writings came later in the Torah. God/Allah who is without error nor mistake gave us these words first and would not have changed His mind, nor contradicted himself, nor got his original words wrong. It is likely that there were embellishments but not here, not at this early and original stage, where scribes struggled so hard to write down the words correctly and without error.. Perhaps the later stories were the works of fiction. It is a well-known that the genesis chapter predates the other chapters. Another argument might be

    “But in Jeremiah/Isaiah/Ezekiel/Amos etc. it states...”

    These are not the words of God/Allah. These writings all come much later on. Another objection might be

    “But it states in the new testament or the Koran”

    The New testament and the Koran came much later than the Old testament, How could an-all seeing Allah/God change His mind and why would the subject place more emphasis on a later work than an earlier one. The original blessing did not state “Smite only the unbeliever or those that do not follow the ways of God". It does not ask for the help of man to clear up the sinners. It cannot be explained in any other way. By omission, God had said nothing to us about rape, or robbery, or fraud, or sexual relations with the same sex or anything else. That is because God made it so clear to us here by simple omission that all other acts are subject to the law of Man. He gave us that freedom.

    . According to what God said we have the right to kill, those who murder unequivocally. This is big news and directly counters the commandment “Thou shall not kill”, but it is there in Genesis in black and white. The next verses are equally important



    [9:7] And you, be fruitful and multiply, abound on the earth and multiply in it." [9:8] Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him, [9:9] "As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you, [9:10] and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the domestic animals, and every animal of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark. [9:11] I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth." [9:12] God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations:

    Note the words used "You and your descendants after you" and "For all future generations"

    It is very clear here that the Covenant and by implication the Blessing were both everlasting, for all time, not to be changed, altered nor corrected.by God. After all an Infallible being, with perfect future sight making such important announcements, would not get them wrong or make an error. we are eternally blessed and for eternity we have been promised never to be destroyed. A far cry from what the three Abrahamic faiths would have you believe.

    A Reverend once told me that this verse meant that and I quote “God will never destroy us ever again by water and it reminded me of the row I once had with a well-known Rabbi who insisted the same until I pointed out that its says right at the end “.For everlasting generations We are going to be everlasting according to God. So, if we add that to the nonsense that the priest and rabbi said “God will never destroy us by water again in Gods covenant for everlasting generations. What rubbish! God doesn’t decide not to destroy us with floods leaving other means open, if that was the case we wouldn't last for everlasting generations…God promises never to destroy us ever again for everlasting generations, so what on earth do we need religion for

    I can see years of guilt and misery melt away from the God-fearing guilt-ridden when they read this whatever their religion. God doesn’t avenge, God doesn’t destroy God doesn’t kill, God doesn’t command us to destroy each other. God promised for everlasting generations never again to hurt us so what on earth are all these wars about in the Middle–East then?. Nothing to do with God that is for certain.



    [9:13] I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. [9:14] When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, [9:15] I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. [9:16] When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth." [9:17] God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth." [9:18] The sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham was the father of Canaan. [9:19] These three were the sons of Noah; and from these the whole earth was peopled.


    It is an everlasting covenant with a blessing that is for all time from the time of Noah. This is the oldest and most original covenant we have with God. This is God’s promise to us. These commands from God are the ones we must keep........ An all-knowing all-seeing God would have known that we would break this Covenant but God did not add in caveats nor details of what would happen, not if but when we broke this Covenant by shedding blood. The Covenant still stands. The words are clear.

    It is essential to understand that an Infallible God makes and Infallible Covenant and that everything that follows on in the Bible after this Covenant is just the words of man.

    BUT there is more. “Everlasting generations” means that God will never destroy us ever again. Add that to the blessing and you will understand that God is not for killing in this world and that no human can dare to stand up and say that god or Allah demands that they should kill. That IS blasphemy. Anyone who kills in the name of God is a liar

    .

    To summarise we have a God who tells us to rule ourselves, who has blessed us to be fruitful and multiply and who has promised never again to destroy us for everlasting generations, so we can say without fear of contradiction that there is no God involvement in this world and anyone who states that there is a liar.


    We have stopped at genesis 9:19 This is not the end of the Bible by any means BUT it is the first and last time God blessed all of us together. After this we get a nasty little story about Noah getting drunk and then we have a God of Abraham appearing, far more tribal in tone, far less universal and lacking the Perfection of God that we have been seeking so much so that we start to feel that this new God is not God at all but a tribal invention favouring one set of his creation over another and with a whole new set of rules. It doesn’t sit right. God had made no mention of any of these new developments when he gave us His Blessing and promise and suddenly God is a Hebrew one. The poor Canaanites were slaughtered, but were they not also blessed and covenanted with through their ancestor Shem, never to be destroyed.

    What happened to the God of Noah? Did he disappear behind some rainbows or did the later stories take the concept of God for their own You can see the implications of this but that is for another book .


    Conclusions

    I have shown the reader that even the Bible itself points to the undeniable truth that there is no God that operates in this world. We are right to be secular, to live in a secular society and to treat others as equal. We are right not to be afraid of God or afraid of being punished for being naughty, because even murderers are ours to deal with and not God’s. So much fear and guilt caused by religion and now our very way of life is being challenged by an image of a bloodthirsty God driving the dark forces of terrorism. Only by cutting God out of the equation altogether and side-lining the Semitic religions can we hope for a safe world for our children.



    The ultimate conclusion to this thesis is one that will cause consternation in religious circles. Religion was a human creation that is both unnecessary, inasmuch as humanity does not need it and misleading inasmuch as neither Judaism Christianity nor Islam gives us the true nature of our relationship with God. indeed, if anything they take us far away from our Creator. We kill in the name of God, we fight wars in the name of God, we bow down, pray and worship God in different ways and yet God never instructed us to do any of these things. The only true path for each and every one of us to return to God is to abandon religion forever

    Religion:
    The Golden Thread Deconstructing Abrahamic Religions
    My Book The Golden Thread simplifies this theology (book excerpt)

    Let us imagine ourselves as explorers and our task is to find the true essence of our Creator. We have before us the holy books, The Old Testament, The New Testament and the Koran, the three books of the Abrahamic faiths. We must look for God, starting at the very beginning, with the oldest of the tomes, namely the Old testament, the book of Genesis. We understand that the story of Adam and Eve shows us that we have been given freewill. and that the story of Cain and Abel shows the mercy of the Creator. The great flood destroys the abominations of the mixing of humanity with the fallen angels, the Nephilim and then we come to God's eternal Covenant and Blessing to all humanity in the form of the world’s ancestors, Noah, Shem ham and Japheth. This is the first time that our Creator speaks to all of humanity and blesses us to be fruitful and multiply. Now we must stop and consider what God did and did not say to us, bearing in mind that our Creator is infallible, all knowing and all-seeing. The Creator cannot make mistakes, cannot forget or omit things in error. there is no error in the Creator's words. Nor can the Creator, of all things be blind to our future or make an error which later he must correct.

    When the Creator spoke to Noah and his children, there were no religious commands. The Creator gave us no orders, no religious doctrines, no religious customs to observe, no religious blessings to recite, no instructions to build temples, or keep days holy, or murder the non-believer, nothing at all like this. There were no instructions how we were to worship, how we were to pray, how we should dress, who would come in the future to save us or lead us, and so on. There was no mention of any of this and to assume that the Creator made an error, or an omission or somehow forgot to tell us any of this is broken thinking. The Creator cannot be wrong, therefore what was said is all that was meant.

    Instead we were told to be fruitful, to multiply and that we would have dominion over the animals. God further told us that never again would the Creator destroy us and that was promised in the Covenant, an everlasting covenant, one for all time, and therefore we could never be destroyed, not just by flood, but indeed by anything or else it could not have been everlasting and the God that could not err, would have so erred.. God also made it clear in genesis 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.. Now let us be clear here. God blessed us to be fruitful and multiply and to be fruitful implies that we should be so to self and others.. The Creator promised never again to destroy us and told us in no uncertain terms that even if we were to commit the greatest possible sin, that of taking a life, then the punishment was up to ourselves, humanity to mete out, not God. But let us not forget Genesis 5 i.e. that there would be a reckoning in the afterlife. As the Creator said in Genesis 9:5 But your blood, of your souls, I will demand [an account]; from the hand of every beast I will demand it, and from the hand of man, from the hand of each man, his brother, I will demand the soul of man.

    If we treat these all these biblical quotes in the manner they deserve i.e. through the voice of God, without error, unable to be contradicted, pure, true and without the possibility of contradiction, without religious interference from interested parties etc , we reach these conclusions Firstly that there is a Creator that does not demand worship, nor is involved in any way in this world. Even if we commit murder, the foulest of deeds, it is up to us to carry out the punishment . Secondly we have been blessed eternally to be fruitful and multiply without condition. Thirdly the reckoning of our lives will take place not here on earth but in the afterlife. The words were spoken to the total of humanity.

    Yet there is more than that which first appears here. Let me speak plain and extrapolate several further meanings here. . Any religion which appears after these words were spoken and attempts to claim the Creator as favouring its organization or side is a false one. Any religion that claims to have the true path to God through worship, or custom etc is a false one. . . Anything that is written in the holy books that contradicts Gods blessing and promise to all humanity, or that contradicts the words the Creator spoke in genesis 9:6 are false and misleading words, unless we were to believe that God's first words to us were somehow erroneous or incorrect. That is nonsensical. Where there is human self-interest in the Bible or Koran there is falsity. A devout Jew or Christian or Muslim knows less the nature of the Creator than those who just go about their daily business being fruitful and multiplying. Judaism Christianity and Islam are man-made religions, far removed from God. the only thing we can be thankful for is that The Jews at least faithfully recorded the words of God as set out in Genesis. But after God spoke to the sons of Noah, the Jews took God for themselves with nonsensical stories. The Christians came up with their own version of God and then so did Mohammed, but none of these three represent the true Creator, impartially blessing all his creations, regardless of race or religion, or whether they pray or not, uninvolved with the affairs of men but judging our actions in the afterlife,

    The only true thing to do, though it would spark a revolution in some quarters, is to tear up the holy books one by one, leaving only Genesis up to and including the Covenant and Blessing, for everything that follows is man-made falsity self-interest and babble. God could not contradict Himself. Everything that contradicts Gods words in the Blessing he gave us and The Covenant must be cast aside.

    Consider this If I lift a sword in anger against my enemy, even if I believe I am acting for God, I am not. My enemy is equally blessed as I am. If a religious Jew Christian or Muslim looks down upon the irreligious as being somehow below them, they are wrong, they are no better, only worse, because they believe that they are more special in the eyes of the Creator because they follow certain rules, when in fact the Creator gave no religious instruction and blessed all equally. Equally!! be that as it may our role is not to speak out against the false Abrahamic religions, because for all the wrong they do they also provide much comfort to many and speaking out will only channel anger against us, but instead as I said earlier we must focus our efforts on dissuading any person from picking up arms or committing violence in the name of God. We must work to dissipate religious fervour, but at the same time we must promote the teachings of the true words of God as I have already mentioned. This way we will act as a counter balance against religious excess but also against the likely growth in the atheistic belief. There is A God who will seek a reckoning in the next life. No one must forget this. We must stand together and fight not only pernicious religious forces but also those that seek to deny the presence of any Creator at all..
