I am interested in the gap between fact and fantasy and why religious people like that place so much.
I’ll take the bible as an example, but this could easily be about any religion.
We haven’t found any evidence for the flood, the walls of Jericho, the arc and a whole lot of other things the bible mentions.
To me, that’s a gap, and I will jump around in the bible a bit to explain what I mean.
Creationists does not accept what we have found as facts. If it’s not in the bible, it doesn’t exist.
That is interesting.
Where I come from, most of those people will end up on medication or hospitalized.
After reading all these books, enjoying the stories in mainstream media and on the Internet, I’ve come to the conclusion that some people have a blind spot.
That blind spot forces their brain into tunnel vision when someone like me starts talking about facts, fossils, science and what we actually knows, exist.
We know, for instance, that a lot of guys was called Jesus in Jerusalem, at the time of “Jesus”.
There’s no trace of the bibles Jesus grave, his home, the resurrection, the miracles and so on.
We know some criminals where crucified, but there are no records of “Jesus”.
There’s a lot of other records about other people, but nothing about the guy in the bible.
And yet, Christians insist he existed, talked & walked and performed miracles…
Moses allegedly parted the sea and went for an unnecessary long walk in the desert.
No stone tablets, no records, no verification, that Moses even existed.
You think a thing like parting the sea should be mentined somewhere, aside from the bible.
The Egyptians, at the time, where manic about their archives, so it’s a mystery.
I recently talked with a Christian that tried to bullshit me with a lie about this Moses guy.
His “real name” should be “Senmut” and every scientist, archeologist and egyptologist should be looking at the “wrong” 300 years of Egyptian history.
I asked him where he got this information… turns out it was another “blind spot”, created by his priest.
So, I have a question for you.
Is there a blind spot?
A place where the brain ignores every fact and fills it with fantasy, myth or just plain lies.
