bible study of the day

Don’t worry folks, I’m only studying bits of it to verify something I just read.

subtitled “bonking for god”

sub-subtitled “make up your freakin’ mind god!”

Gen 6:1  And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born unto them,

Fair enough, god’s made man and woman and they’ve started to procreate. I’m also guessing sons were born as well, but they are not of much interest at this stage, as we shall soon see.

Gen 6:2  that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose.

So if I read this right, gods sons (angels?) took a fancy to all the good looking daughters of the mere mortal men and took them as wives (whether they liked it or not by the looks of things). Of note in the Good News Bible  (GNB) the verse is as follows:

some of the heavenly beings saw that these young women were beautiful, so they took the ones they liked

Nothing about marriage here, just pure bonk fest by the sounds of it. Hey being a son of god has to have some perks.

By the way I thought god only ever had one son? But these passages indicate he’s got lots?

Gen 6:3  And the LORD said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his days be an hundred and twenty years.

So we could all have lived for ever but god decided that we couldn’t be immortal like him, so he set a time limit – maximum 120 years.

Gen 6:4  The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same were the mighty men which were of old, the men of renown.

Nephilim – for those that don’t know (I didn’t), are the children of angels and humans (see bonk fest in Gen 6.2 and 6.4). The Nephilim are also called Giants in some versions of the Bible, GNB and King James version (KJV) to name a couple. So the angels bonk the earthly women and they have ‘giant’ babies, ooohh that could be painful.

Gen 6:5  And the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

So the story takes a major turn here, we’ve been discussing how the “sons of god” (angels) have been ‘getting it on’ with all the good looking human women. Having ‘giant’ babies who turn out to be “heroes of renown”; and god thinks the humans are being wicked? What the heck were they doing wrong, poor blokes had to suffer for second best after the angels took all the good looking women. Wouldn’t blame them if they were a tad upset and got a bit uppity.

Gen 6:6  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

So after going to all the trouble of making man and women, knowing full well that they’d procreate and have fun, he decides he’s made a mistake? He decides that ‘man’ is wicked and he gets upset that there are so many of them; but he thinks his ‘sons’ are nice guys? God doesn’t strike me as much of an ‘all knowing god’ like some people profess him to be. So god regrets making man, and then we get to the flood…

Well here endeth the lesson

  1. This simply strengthens my belief that the bible is one weird pile of dung.

  2. welcome Scott, well said!

    I did a series on my blog about the nephilim and a book by Thomas R. Horn who theorizes that it’s only a matter of time before these Watchers (as he called them) would come back. It was very entertaining. Some think the nephilim are in prison under the surface of Mars. Hell, it was more than entertaining…

  4. The bible is one of the weirdest books ever written. Even when I was a Christian I couldn’t wrap my brain around some of the BS.

  5. You stopped too soon!!! You didn’t get to the part where

    God floods the earth
    he promises never to do it again
    Noah and his immediate bioligical family repopulate the earth
    and it’s still fucked up.

    God’s initial creation *FAIL*
    God’s corrective measures *FAIL*

    God himself. *FAIL*

    Didn’t he know it would fail? so why do it at all?

    Because he likes watching the inbreeding happen. Pervert.

      I would encourage you to read more! Taking one verse here and their can make it very easy to manipulate the words into your own ways of thinking. First of all, Nephilim refers to men of great physical stature- giants (see Num. 13:32-33) But here it probably means princes or aristocrates-men of political stature. Nelphilim is linked to another term that indicates a heroic person with both power and influence. The bible was originally written in hebrew therefore not all translations should be taken literal. Research, question and give the word an opportunity to speak to you personally. In regards to our lifespan: back up a little in Genesis and you will see why. We as men have lost the opportunity of immortality on this earth because of our sin. That is why (in the New Testament) God sent his ONLY son to die for our sins. That we may have eternal life in heaven….no not on earth but in a place where sin does not exist. God made us because he loves us! He also gave us free will because he loves us! Tell me, do you make your loved ones love you? Would that love feel so great if it was forced? No. That is why God has given us the choice. We can choose to have faith not of our human understanding and believe what we can not see.
      In regards to Gods initial creation *Fail*
      Gods corrective measures *fail*
      God himself *fail*
      You are one of his creations. Does that mean you are a failure? Does that mean all that surrounds you is failure?

      Also, Genesis (the entire book) is one huge soap opera! It is there so that we can see that as humans we have always sinned! We have NEVER been perfect. As a Christian we still will NEVER be perfect. It is this fact that we need faith in God for our salvation.

  6. I have to ditto what Godless Woman and Fiery said!!

    Take care!!

    Wow, and I was just on another atheist blog commenting that I didn’t believe that all atheists were ignorant and uneducated. Now I have to go back and do an addendum that “While not all atheists are ignorant and uneducated, clearly some are profoundly so! For proof just go to ozatheist.wordpress.com.”

    Your ignorance is only exceeded by your arrogance.

    The non-canonical work First Enoch runs with the Sons of God idea and makes it even more trippy. We get the names of the most important angles (Samyaza, Urakabarameel, Akibeel, Tamiel, etc.) and we get a list of the horrible, horrible things they taught the humans: astronomy, sorcery, and cosmetics. Yes, cosmetics: “the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes”

    The fact that is actually lists, “the beautifying of the eyebrows,” as a type of forbidden knowledge is just hilarious.

    A Wikipedia search of “oldest person” returned the following:

    “The longest unambiguously documented lifespan is that of Jeanne Calment of France (1875–1997), who died at age 122 years and 164 days”

    Oops…guess Yahweh’s been wrong at least once :/

    Entertaining Blog! – whats your take on alien intervention – ref: Slave Species of God by Michael Tellinger and the Sumerian Clay tablets which give the story that earth was colonised by an advanced species including geneticists – “Heavenly beings” which may have been interpreted as angels by our prdecessors. And do you think this could account for the missing link and sudden rapid advancement of humans.

    How blind can you be!!!! How ignorant can a person be when you look at creation and think there is no creator. Are you really that narrow minded? Do you really think earth created itself by a mere explosion? Whatever your opinion is on the matter….your opinion is dead wrong!!! It doesn’t matter what you are trying to convey to others….that doesn’t make you right but rather ignorant and extremely uneducated. What is really sad, you who call yourself an atheist and yet said “God made a mistake” You just acknowledged God’s existance but don’t agree how he does things(He did not ask for your opinion nor mine) You can look for a millions excuse not to believe on Him and you may be successful in persuading others to agree with you….this only makes you a fool! May you never have to go from earth before having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I wonder what you would say in judgement day before the great and holy throne of God!!!
    Humble yourself before Him, before your arrogance condemns you.
