IS TANAKH GREAT LITERATURE?

The very question makes me laugh.

Can a war manual and a book of sorcery like the Tanakh ever be called great literature?

How can the Tanakh be ranked among the greatest literature ever written when it lacks poetry and above all when its pages are chock-full of murder, genocide, human sacrifices, animal offerings, cannibalism, abuses, curses, threats, stoning gays and disobedient sons to death, bashing babies against walls, incest, rape of female slaves, drunkenness, war, cruelty and other forms of barbarism?

It's only a man of great evil who can suggest that the Tanakh is a book of great literature.

Reading Tanakh on a regular basis can get the reader possessed by the demonic being(s) whose adverse forces radiate from the savage writings or can convert him into a fanatic with an inhuman and a terrorist mindset.

So tell me why someone like you would think differently.

In crucial ways, Tanakh is not a historical work since:

1)The historicity of most of its prophets cannot be established

2) Adam-Eve story is a fable

3) Global flood is a fairy tale

4) Exodus is a lie

5) Some G-d appearing to a prophet in a bush of fire is a hallucination

6) Account of creation is a superstition

etc etc etc

What is heaven? Where is it? How many heavens exist? What is their basal constitution? How are they connected with mind and matter? How does one get there or come down from there?

Joel---IS TANAKH GREAT LITERATURE?

Hugh--- I would say NO in the strictest of sense. It is largely HISTORICAL in nature. Perhaps Eric regards it as literature or CREATIVE work based on what he sees around him.

Guru, I await your insight.
Aside from being unable to define heaven(s), you're incapable of defining soul, self, absolute, life-force, subconscient, subliminal, superconscient, ego and paranormal among others.

Anyway, it doesn't matter.

Just be good and do good and employ your resources in a constructive manner.

Thanks master and if you are so moved by the infinite kindness within you I would still appreciate getting the insight that you are capable of giving me.

Humane and intelligent Jews have dumped G-d, Tanakh, human sacrifices, animal sacrifices, incest, sorcery, mumbo jumbo rituals like shabbath, murder, stoning to death, wars, tribalism, Zionism, messianism and rivalry with other communities among other great evils and have adopted a secular, rational and humanist path, or have turned to the benign teachings of say Buddhism or if in possession of the higher capacity may make forays into the objective and/or subjective investigation of mind-matter.

Historical works cannot be great literature? Who says so? The creative facet is the manner of expression. The way the words are put together. The choice of words. G-d was a really great author for the first 5 books. David for Psalms. Solomon for the Song of Song. etc. Look at how much has been turned into songs. Think of the poetry. Hugh, you need to expand your horizons.

Intelligent people dont waste their time online ranting against "Rabbis" especially when they have never met an actual observant Jew in their life. You have issues.

Ever consider a career in child care?

Size matters? Testicle size linked to nurturing
Men with smaller testicles are more involved in bringing up their children, a study finds.
