I'm still laughing at you and redifined.

The Gnostic Gospel of Judas never mentions the crucifixion or the resurrection.There was a group of Gnostic (Knowledge) Christians named after Seth, Sethians.

In the Christian Gospel called "The Second Treatise of The Great Seth", 56.6-19 in NHL 332, Jesus Christ told Simon, "It was another...who drank the gall and the vinegar; it was not I... it was another Simon, who bore the cross on his shoulder. It was another upon whom they placed the crown of thorns. But I was rejoicing in the height (the hills) over… their error. And I was laughing at their ignorance.(for thinking it was I who they were crucifying

Jain scriptures question the existence of God both logically and theistically. The Mahapurana declares that one should reject all notions of some God creating this world. It asks, " If God created this world, where was He before creation and where is He now and how can an immaterial God create a material world?" It goes on to conclude, "Know that the world is uncreated, as time itself is, without a beginning and without an end... Uncreated and indestructible, it endures under the compulsions of its own nature, divided into three sections- the hell, the earth and the heaven."

There is no God to maintain the universe

Jains do not believe that any form of god is necessary to keep the universe in existence, or that any form of god has any power over the universe.

There is no God of judgement

Jains do not believe in that sort of judgement. Jains believe that the goodness or quality of a being's life are determined by karma.



There is no God compared to whom each of us will always be inferior

Every soul has the potential to become perfect. All perfect souls are equal.

The heavenly beings are not gods

The beings that live in the heavenly kingdoms are not gods since they are still subject to karma and reincarnation. These beings are called devas.



Jains do not believe that the universe was created by God or by any other creative spirit. Jain writings reflect this cleearly:

"If God created the world, where was he before creation? If you say he was transcendent then, and needed no support, where is he now?

No single being had the skill to make this world -- For how can an immaterial god create that which is material?

If God is ever perfect and complete, how could the will to create have arisen in him? If, on the other hand, he is not perfect, he could no more create the universe than a potter could"

Each one of us has a potential to become a God. A soul is present in the every living being, i.e. Humans, Animals, Birds, Insects, Fish, Plants, etc., but that soul is not liberated and has not realized (revealed) its full potential. It is known as Jeevatma, which goes through endless cycles of birth and death. Each soul (Jeevatma) is the possessor of the infinite knowledge, infinite power, but it cannot realize/reveal its full potential and goes through an eternal cycle of births and death.this liberated soul becomes a God.

Master Fard Muhhamad traveled to India and Pakistandd and you can see eastern teachings he was trying to bring to AAs mixed in his symbolisms. He said the "devil" was grafted from the Black man(mind).6000 yrs it took,this is code for the 6 states of mind.

The siix types of leshyas(state of mind)

The first state of mind represents krishna (black) leshya
The second state of mind represents neel (blue) leshya.

The third state of mind represents kapot (brown) leshya.
The fourth state of mind represents tejo (red) leshya.
The fifth state of mind represents padma (yellow) leshya.
The sixth state of mind represents shukla (white) leshya.

Your so called Jesus was a member of the Essenes which where influinced by Jainism.When the Alexander invaded India he came across a host of nude Jain saints in Taxila whom the Greek writers call Gymnosophists. The Greek word connotes the nude philosopher. The mystic group of Israel, called the Essenes, was much influenced by these Gymnosophists, who were preaching their message of Ahimsa, the central truth in Jainism to the people of Alexandra in Egypt. Historical records tell us that the Greeks were much influenced by Jain thoughts. Alexander had taken one Jain saint, Calanes. With him to his country.

In his book, The Magic of Numbers, E. T. Bell (p. 87) tells that once Pythagoras saw a citizen beating his dog with a stick, whereupon the merciful philosopher shouted, "Stop beating that dog. In this howls of pain I recognize the voice of a friend.For such sin as you are committing he is now the dog of a harsh master. By the next turn the wheel of birth may make him the master and you the dog. May he be more merciful to you than you are to him. Only thus can he escape the wheel. In the name of Apollo, My father, stop or I shall be compelled to say on you the ten fold curse of the Teteractyas." This reveals the effect of Jainism.

They can show emotional bonds and remorse
"Elephants have some of the most elaborate group rituals of any animals. When a beloved member of an elephant troop dies, those left behind will mourn the lost individual by "burying" the body with leaves and grass, and keeping vigil over the body for a week. And just as humans visit the gravesites of their lost loved ones, elephants visit the bones of dead elephants for years to come."

The Elephant is one of the very few animals who has funerals. Funerals is NOT something which occur frequently among animals unless animals are aware they are going to grow old and die someday. I doubt animals are aware of how old they are or they know the day they were born. Many animals are prey because they will continue revisiting the same area they were attacked. Human conscience does NOT derive from animals.

Says who? When was the last time humans had a complex conversation with another animal to figure this out? Never!
We are animals remember. Some animals do would express remorse like some humans do not (psychopaths). Social animals (us included) show clear signs of bonding.
Because there are behavior differences among animals which have been domesticated vs animals which hasn't been domesticated. Some animals can exhibit similar behavior patterns found among Humans do to shared environment and training. It does NOT mean they are animals who normally show remorse especially if they are descended from animals who do NOT.

(1) Two sensed beings (Beindriya Jiva): Two sensed beings have the senses of touch, and taste. e.g. shells, worms, insects, microbes in stale food, termites, etc.

(2) Three sensed beings (Treindriya Jiva): Three sensed beings have the senses of touch, taste, and smell, e.g. bugs, lice, white ants, moths and insects in wheat and other grains, centipedes, etc.

(3) Four sensed beings (Chaurindriya Jiva): Four sensed beings have the senses of touch, taste, smell and sight, e.g. scorpions, crickets, spiders, beetles, locusts, flies, etc.

(4) Five sensed beings (Panchendriya Jiva): Five sensed beings have all the five senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing e.g. human beings, cow, lions, fish, birds, etc.

Among the five sensed beings some have minds, while others do not. Those having a mind are called Sangni Panchendriya and those without a mind are called Asangni Panchendriya.

Most land animals have a fear of humans due the history between man and other animals. They are aware but not in such detail to us because we simply have a complex culture which involved complex language. Without learning language a child will grow up not to know any óf these things like most animals, so what's your point?

Chimpanzees have not been domesticated yet show a culture of tool making and they're social like us.
