The Worlds First Transhumanists
Many people donít realize who the first rationalists and humanists were.
In the time of superstitious idol worshiping and many pagan deities being fabricated there stood one group of people who fought against this false devotion and supressive mind control. Raising above the status quo they were serving man through exposing
THE UNPOPULAR TRUTH to try and bring humanity out of these fantasy myths and into an age of appreciating and progressing life and human potential.
Think of all the revolutionary ideas which the Torah introduced at that time:
The concept of a one God which they said had no form, no physical image, and was not a man, but was best described as an essence to be complete and whole. A concept of what we know to be the most finite description of the Creator of Creation with the ability to see the complex workings and balance of life that progresses through processions thus that essence (G0d) exists but must be described in order for man to see his place within that creation. Therefore the argument should never be over does G0d exist, but discussions should be over describing what the Creation's Creating Force (G0d) is in most finite terms. Through the Torah the ancient Hebrews were expressing this essence 'to be' and 'what causes to be' so eloquently, but lost people when they made anthropromorphic references to G0d that were figurative not literal then other cultures formed physical or deified entities that tainted how people perceive the word G0d, which simply refers to Creator and does not describe what that force or source is.
Each culture has their own way of describing or perceiving that source they call G0d, so remember not to assume one person is discussing the same thing as another merely because they share the same expressed term like
G0d /Angel /Heaven /Hell and that one should find out that persons perception or expression before being lofty and assuming wrong.
The Ancient Hebrews prohibitions against portraying the creator in idolic or physical form and assuming these mysteries with portraits didnít make sense until you realize that if they had been listened to, there wouldnít be confusion over people fighting over these self-proclaimed cultural images. They foresaw man overcoming nature and extending life. They forsaw man progressing to other layers of this procession into the next stage of evolving into perfection and all we could be.
They left us the concept of councils and round tables to bring stability and success while laying the foundation of the common decency laws which help keep us from total chaos and brought justice to our lives.
The commanded law set prohibitions against murder, theft, rape, incest, or the sacrifice of one's children to a pagan god. They set standards in the obligation to honor and provide for one's parents. The duty to share one's wealth with the needy or to bestow ones talents and service for the group as a whole. Today, we find it incredible that such things needed to be commanded to us, but back then, they were no less fantastic than those elements of Torah which you find so hard to accept.
Over the millennia, they inspired other monotheistic and near- monotheistic religions and great social movements. They deeply influenced many other doctrines, legal systems, ideologies and cultures. In a word, they brought the world that much closer to the Torah's ethos and ideals without them noticing or giving credit where credit was due. It was a struggle to bring and keep these ideas alive in a world struggling to keep sane and just. As in the ďMikeitzĒ portion of the Torah conveys, truly it was the role & great task to keep these unpopular truths till itís time to be proven, and by that they became the suffering servant for keeping the truth till all was safe and just in this world and all was perfected to where we could and ought to be. To ignore these things because the fallen ones brought everyone down or tainted the visions, is to ignore the path that still best takes us to where we should be and has always known these things.
While taking to humanist views the world CAN NOT AFFORD TO EXCUSE the concepts of religion or God as the Hebrews tried to show us otherwise they would be in for a real disappointment.
First off most peoples non belief or lack of faith is because they donít understand the concepts of God through the Hebrew teachings, thus they let the poor and failed teachers turn them off from the reality teachings that exist to guide us while helping to further us within a structured path to assure justice and success. Logic says; Who best knows the path except one whoís already at the end of that path waiting for you?
Conclusion; Donít think that youíre to smart, to clever, to advanced to need the structured presence of God. Donít let the worshipers of death fool you into not accepting the concept of the Hebrew God, just because they taint the term God in their Santa Claus fantasy myths.
Without God which is in itself a vision, a goal, a design, a law, a set premise and presence of structure then you have failure. Itís been proven in societies that have no beliefs. Now one might say futurist humanism is that vision, but it lacks showing restraints and laws of structure and also has nothing to answer to. It also doesnít leave a structure or design that works to keep the balance or mediate the pace of progression so that itís not off balance. In other words you canít have high tech advances without advances in behavior sciences otherwise the power of the future without mental stability can mean more harm then ever in controlling with these advances or by destroying with them.
Thus life needs a designer and a mediator. Without the mediator, designer, and presence of these visions of design that keep the justice and balance, then you have a world out of control and even more dangerous.
To say you can do this without what brought you here is as absurd as walking halfway up a mountain with a rope then riding that rope line when your 3/4 the way up thinking your too good for the rope.
Thinking you donít need the rope anymore you WILL fall, then you will not be able to to get back and change that mistake in judgment. *food for thought*
