It's a natural concept.Interesting you quoted a passage with is directly related to Zoroastrian philosophy e.g. the light and darkness.
Not necessarily, but I understand what you're referring to.Myth is how humans express their understanding of the Perennial Philosophy which comes up time and time again across cultures.
In what generation are you referring to, because many aspects of the bible have been proven factual.There are few tangible and verifiable facts in the Bible.
You're referring to a nation that became nomadic. Their ancestor was from Babylon, then moved to Egypt. Then, after only two generations, they returned to Egypt and remained for over four-hundred years.Nomadic cultures often had a collaboration between Priests and Warriors. The Priests had special powers such as communication with Gods or spirits as well as healing skills. Warriors protected the Priests and relied upon them to bring victory to their battles. The Exodus account is one such story.
Actually, Aaron was Moses' spokesman, considering that Moses had a speech impediment.Moses is the priest with supernatural powers while Aaron is the warrior.
Actually, Aaron didn't disappear. Aaron died.Eventually Aaron disappears from the accounts leaving Moses by himself as leader.
A "fetish?" Really? Is that what you would call a family-heirloom, too?They have their fetish which they haul around from place to place called the Arch.
I've never read his material, but I've discussed his work before. And I can understand what you mean as to your mention of the bible becoming an idol, but I can also understand why people treat the bible that way. And not everyone overlooks the symbolism. My question to is is this: Why would the Israelites incorporate a "God" in their mythology that didn't reflect themselves, as most other invented gods do? And who would think to try to place themselves at the apex of the hierarchy by recording every fault and punishment to befall their own nation?I suggest you look into Joseph Campbell. He explained all this very well. People tend to turn the Bible into an idol when they overlook the symbols contained in the mythology and the quest for a knowledge of the perennial philosophy of the God head.
I'm familiar with the concept, but not the author.Are you familiar with The Perennial Philosophy written by Aldous Huxley?
