61. Thoth Vol III, No. 4: Feb 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... , which is central to modern cosmology, I agree with Gregg Easterbrook who wrote in The New Republic of last October 12; ". .. for sheer extravagant implausibility, nothing in theology or metaphysics can hold a candle to the [Big] Bang. Surely, if this description of the cosmic genesis came from the Bible or the Koran rather than the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, it would surely be treated as a preposterous myth." It is worthwhile pointing out that the form of the magnetic field of the Sun matches the expectations of an Electric Sun, with field lines being evenly spaced rather than bunched near the poles like a normal dipole magnet. The even spacing ...

... poverty is removed from society. This can be done if you follow the real path advocated by Z and the other Eastern teachers, as well as Jesus. The subject has been studied but not practised. Tyranny takes its place. People sell themselves to the rulers. That is the worst thing happening in the world today. In the Koran - every human being has got an evil feeling by inheritance. Cyrus The man who spread these ideas all around the world was Cyrus. Mowllana Abul Kalam Azad told AS about Cyrus. It seems, unfortunately, that the Cyrus the world is proud of is not known in Persia, because Mullahs have overreacted to what seems to be ...

... . There are many who are attempting to maintain a confidence in Scripture by taking shelter under the often stated claim that it is not necessary for Scripture to be historically reliable for its religious message to be retained. This concept is totally fallacious. If these writings are not reliable historically, they have no more genuine religious import than does the Koran, or the writings of Hinduism, or Confucianism. The religious message of Scripture is inseparable from its historical reliability. The relative impotency of modern Christianity as practised by many may be traced directly to a premature compromise of theology with scientific opinion.

... man and beast, and the construction of some ship, chest or enclosure to preserve them, leads directly to the annular system as the source of the destroying waves. Both the legend of Ogyge's flood and that of Deucalion, refer to the offices of the ark in the preservation of a few persons, from a general destruction. The Koran says, " All men were drowned save Noah and his family; and then God said, ' Oh Earth, swallow up thy waters, and thou Oh Heaven, withhold thy rain, ' and immediately the waters abated." The Egyptians seem to have had a correct knowledge of the deluge, for they told Solon that there ...

... of the intelligent. Near the well there was a Tree, lifting its head to the cupola of Orion." The top of the well was covered by a stone, which it took 40 men's strength to move. He tools up his station under the tree, and addressed his prayers to the omnipotent granter of requests. In the Koran (ch. liii) is the Tote or lotos tree, beyond which there is no passing, near it is the garden of eternal abode. It stands in the seventh heaven, on the right hand of the throne of Allah, and that over which it spreads exceeds all description and numbering. "Some boundless contiguity of shade ...

... Why should the religious world shrink from the theory of evolution? To know the path by which God has advanced is not to disparage God. Could all this orderly nature have grown up out of chance, out of the accidental concatenation of atoms? As Bacon said: "I would rather believe all the fables in the Talmud and the Koran than that this universal frame is without a mind I " Wonderful thought! A flash of light through the darkness. And what greater guarantee of the future can we have than evolution?

... defending myself! Yes, as Larson says, the "study of catastrophism is also the study of the very origins of religion," but doesn't this imply that, as we gradually come to a better understanding of what it was that started the religious balls rolling, as it were, it is inevitable that fundamentalists, whether Biblical, Koranic, Vedic or whatever, will be increasingly criticized and with good reason? Will we not increasingly, as Roger Wescott does in his "Religious Ruminations" definition of "ritual," see every ceremony as a "miniature theater of the absurd?" There is a sense in which religious toleration could be said to militate against the ...
