DELUDED BUDDHA:

Buddha was deluded and like other mystics lived in the zone of brain-produced consciousness which is an emergent phenomenon of brain EM activity. Buddha and others like him got so involved in experiencing the various movements of consciousness that they remained ignorant of the basis of consciousness, which, in the human being, is neuronal EM activity. Brain waves, brain structure, neuronal details, generation of EM due to electrochemically induced acceleration of ions in ion channels in neurons, feedback loops between excited neurons and the generated EM pulses and synchrony of neuronal firing to produce the coherent conscious experience were not known by Buddha and other ignorant persons. Their altered states of consciousness produced a nonlocality that made them perceive universal states of the phenomenon of brain-produced consciousness and conferred on them the capacity to connect with the EM produced consciousness of other living/nonliving beings. So, thinking that consciousness and its strata were things (substance) that were independent of matter, these deluded yogis, like the Buddha and others, had very great contempt for their bodies and sought escape in trances and in nirvana, while failing to recognize the fundamental fact of consciousness being an activity of the brain and of matter in different stages of organization in general.

Dump the rabbis, priests, prophets, rituals, mitzvot and scriptures and be free of superstition and of mind control. It has rightly been said that it is good to be born in a church but best to die away from the church in the open air of freedom.

Camels Had No Business in Genesis
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/11/science/cam...
Camels probably had little or no role in the lives of such early Jewish patriarchs as Abraham, Jacob and Joseph, who lived in the first half of the second millennium B.C., and yet stories about them mention these domesticated pack animals more than 20 times. Genesis 24, for example, tells of Abraham’s servant going by camel on a mission to find a wife for Isaac.
These anachronisms are telling evidence that the Bible was written or edited long after the events it narrates and is not always reliable as verifiable history. These camel stories “do not encapsulate memories from the second millennium,” said Noam Mizrahi, an Israeli biblical scholar,“but should be viewed as back-projections from a much later period.”.......
..........One should be careful not to rush to the conclusion that the new archaeological findings automatically deny any historical value from the biblical stories,” Dr. Mizrahi said in an email.“Rather, they established that these traditions were indeed reformulated in relatively late periods after camels had been integrated into the Near Eastern economic system. But this does not mean that these very traditions cannot capture other details that have an older historical background.”
rabbee: well i guess it all depends on whether you believe Bereeesheet written by G-D, or anti-Bereeesheet written by fallible scientists the enemies of G-D. who would you rather believe, about seven billion enemies of G-D or G-D?

There's no evidence to support the historicity of Adam, Eve, Garden of Eden, Abraham, Noah, Lot, Moses, Elijah, David, Jesus and other mythical characters and besides scientific research indicates there never was a great flood and that the story of Exodus is a lie. Quran repeats Biblical lies and so Quran is also a lie.
rabbee: so you think this is worth, having it all happen again? because you rather believe the enemies of G-D, rather than G-D. is believing in scientific stupidity, really worth doing this all over again? do you know the definition of hell, is making the same old mistakes over and over expecting different results.

Yea, I read about the camels. Other than bible literalists, I don't think anyone else is thinking about this too much. This is non-news as far as I'm concerned.
News Flash: In other world news today, the world-wide flood never really happened, and the earth isn't anywhere near 6000 years old.
rabbee: well if you prefer to believe the enemies of G-D, then you might as well believe every thing joel says too. cause he says, he is even smarter than obama. if you do not think so, just ask him.

I respectfully disagree. The details are interesting to a lot of people. Much of the other environmental details did pan out. Such as foodstuffs. There are zillions of people fascinated with biblical archaeology. As well as historical ecology.
There are dozens of species (especially birds) listed within that lack adequate correspondence - English translations of Hebrew words that are not uniform between English versions. I would imagine that many of these animals are extinct, or somewhere else geographically - but we have no idea what the Hebrew words are referring to because the gap in knowledge over the ages, as no one paid attention to these things and the ecological knowledge was lost.
I stand corrected.
