Who had a gospel before the Christian’s made theirs up?

All them Judeo Christians who pretend
they invented godly morality didn’t.

 

Our moral systems are like our innate grammar; we all have the ability to learn a language, and we learn the language of our culture. All of us have moral systems, and we learn the moral values of our culture. We internalize them, and those values color our intuitive, automatic, and emotional moral responses. We know the difference between right and wrong even without religion.

  1. Very comprehensive list of things not to do. 42 is much better than the measly 10 the Christians settled on. .The current crop of repubs really, really fall short.

  2. And remember the writings of the East (Tao De Ching, Dhammapada) and especially India (Vedas, Upanishads) which are reputed to be even older than the Book of the Dead. Perhaps it is just a matter of when records began being taken. Verbal transmission could make all the wisdom teachings even older. Some people just want to be on the “winning team.” Tribalism still appears to be ingrained in the psyche of man. The beauty of people beginning to see it is that nothing can be done until the concern is correctly identified.
