    Humans are a part of the Animal Kingdom. Humans are an animal species regardless if you want to accept it or not. Other animal species are much more civilized than the human species.

    Faith is believing something that you know isnt true.

    Con men (confidence men) use this ability to swindle naive people who don't even realize that such a thing is possible.

    2 kinds of people. Rational and irrational.

    You are either a rational human being or you are an animal.

    All other distinctions are trivial and unimportant.

    Humans reason. Animals project.

    Humans know. Animals believe.

    Atheists and theists = animals. That's why I don't consider myself to be either one.

    I am the bread of life which came down from Heaven:
    if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my soma (σωμα), which I will give for the life of the world.
    The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his soma to eat?
    Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the soma of the Son of man, and drink his wine, ye have no life in you.

    From this [time] many of his disciples went away backward, and were no more walking with him,


    These things he said in a synagogue, teaching in (Greek-speaking?) Capernaum

    Archaeological evidence demonstrates that the town was established in the 2nd century BC during the Hasmonean period.

    Maybe when he said to eat his soma he had no idea how his greek-speaking audience was going to take it. (In Greek soma means body)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soma

    Soma (Sanskrit: sóma) or Haoma (Avestan), from Proto-Indo-Iranian *sauma-, was a Vedic ritual drink of importance among the early Indo-Iranians, and the subsequent Greater Indian and Greater Iranian cultures. It is frequently mentioned in the Rigveda, whose Soma Mandala contains 114 hymns, many praising its energizing qualities.

    It is described as being prepared by extracting juice from the stalks of a certain plant. In both Hinduism and Zoroastrianism, the name of the drink and the plant are the same, and also personified as a divinity, the three forming a religious or mythological unity.

    In the Vedas, the same word is used for both the drink and the plant. Drinking Soma produces immortality

Leviticus 17:10
And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eats any manner of blood;
I will even set my face against that soul that eats blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
I have given to you the soma of wine of the soul [which] is upon the altar-of-atonement of your souls: for the wine of the soul (Holy Spirit) atones.
Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood,...

Earth originally had four moons.
A greater moon (Theia) and a lesser Moon and two much smaller moons (Ceres and ????).

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.


3 billion years ago Theia's decaying orbit reached the Roche limit and for the next 1 billion years Theia slowly deposited...

And the head El-o-hym layeth a charge on the man, saying, `Of every Rhod of the garden eating thou dost eat;
and of the Rhod seeing and knowing Good&Evil, thou dost eat of it, NOT, thou shalt die-die in the day that thou eatest thereof'

(or "and of the Rhod Good-Reu-Seeing-El, thou dost eat of it, for thou shalt kill death in the day that thou eatest thereof")

Now the serpent was more crafty (aruwm) than any beast of the field which the Lord God...
