... credibility, not by what they describe or narrate, but by what we consider reasonable given our present knowledge of the universe.

... original document dictated by God to Moses. So extreme was this attack upon the Jewish Bible that, to quote a leading commentary at the turn of the century: "religious terms, ideas, institutions, once supposed to be peculiar to Israel, are now seen to be common to them and other nations; in some cases, moreover ... the latter half of the 19th century would itself have initiated the process." [ibid] This multi-pronged attack on the Jewish Bible, this rejection of biblical history, religion and ethics, was a vast creation of 19th-century Europe, an attack on the Jews led almost exclusively by German scholars like Eichorn, Vatke, Reuss, Baur, ...
113. When Venus Was A Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... the great civilizations of Central America reached heights unparalleled in the rest of the New World. Like their Egyptian counterparts, the Mesoamericans were renowned for their great stone pyramids and religious monuments. Amidst the hieroglyphs and iconography associated with these structures are religious traditions which would appear to be of extreme antiquity. That many of these religious traditions were astronomically ... celestial visitors, the present authors began an extensive investigation into the role of comets in ancient tradition. It was discovered that comets played a significant role in ancient mythology and religion, one which would appear to be totally out of proportion with respect to their celestial prominence.(1 ) It eventually became apparent that most, if not all ...
114. The Egyptian Prince Moses [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... incident as recorded in Exodus, is it not revealing that Jubilees made no reference to it? But Antapanus did. Perhaps we should consider the Burning Bush as a watershed religious experience in Moses' life, a conversion separating his life into two distinctly different religious careers- both of which were spectacular. In his first career Moses served the ... worthy to be honored like a god, was named Hermes, because of his interpretation of the Hieroglyphics. Artapanus obviously spoke with clarity. His Moses was steeped in the religion of the Egyptians; he certainly would have some unlearning to do at the Burning Bush, where he first met Yahweh, on the slopes of Mount Sinai. With ...

116. VELIKOVSKY AND OEDIPUS [Journals] [Aeon]
... conclusion of Oedipus and Akhnaton Velikovsky protests that Freud's thesis in Moses and Monotheism tended to rob the Jews of their most famous prophet together with their priority in the development of religious monotheism. There Velikovsky wrote: Unless his inner motivations are understood, one is equally baffled by Freud's insistence on writing and publishing as his last book- almost as ... the eve of his departure from a long life he had to blast the Hebrew God, demote his prophet, and glorify an Egyptian apostate as the founder of a great religion.(3 ) Velikovsky goes so far as to suggest that Freud's conclusions with respect to Moses and the historical development of monotheism were neurotically motivated: When Freud approached ...

... on the phylogenetic inheritance of guilt, the pioneering French anthropologist Emile Durkheim (1858-1917) had already anticipated Velikovsky's criticism. In his 1912 classic, The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life, he was highly critical of any "naturistic" explanation for religion; such an explanation addresses itself to the phenomenon of nature, either the great cosmic forces ...

Smart scientists are usually agnostics, dumb ones dogmatic and religious about science itself. Science is a powerfully revealing mode of thought. It has proved so powerful in explaining so many things that seemed "mystical" or "miraculous ... at one time that many people treat science itself as though it were a religion.

... portion of his mind to posterity by means of Yahweh. Unfortunately, it was the wrong part, the conscience-loaded superego, but so it must go with the birth of religious cults. Since it was the hallucinatory and delusionary operations of his mind that were handed down, these would in some ways not be truly Moses. They would be ... refusal of the strong urge to reproduce the forms of the deity was probably built up in the mosaic period and later on maintained by the compulsive repetition of the highly ritualistic religion, with discipline maintained by the priesthood.
