    I have a problem with the 'story' of Adam and Eve and that we were all born out of incest.

    Here is an interesting piece about the origin of the story of Adam and Eve: The real story of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden – Shaman of Avalon (anniedieuleveut.com)

    Sure, the beast system of authoritarians have waged wars, to how much was actually over economics, resources, politics, vanity, personal power.

    Most wars were for political and economic reasons. Religion is often used to rile up the masses who will do the fighting.

    I was given the great gift to accept and believe in the Catholic Church’s teachings. The teachings make sense to me. I’m no theologian and can’t comprehend the great mysteries, but faith and hope (as well as a Catholic education) give me confidence that we’re here for a purpose-to serve God.
    Of course, the majority of my life was misspent serving/abusing myself, deferring to my pride, doing what I want, not what God wants.

    As I close in on year 70, it’s becoming a bit easier to try and look past the world’s trials and tribulations, with the hope of sharing in the eternal, divine nature which God offers, purchased for us through the Life and death of his begotten son, Jesus.

    All the answers anyone seeks are available.

    Here’s a great talk on “why there is something rather than nothing”.

    Why would a real god need to be served?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Why assume that he needs anything? By serving him during our life, by serving others, we justify ourselves worthy to join him in heaven. We’re created with a divine nature in our future, one way or another, we ourselves make the choice as to how and where we’ll spend it.

    The lefts theory is that Adam and Eve were some type of fish that crawled out of a pond in Africa. Same concept that required fish incest.

    But don't forget that the entire cycle started over again when Noah found land with only his family on board and alive in the world.

    I think it should be okay to say that we really don't know.


    Maybe we can get Kamala to do some filmed book readings for us.
    She could adapt Dr. Seuss's "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish"
    Let's go Brandon !!!
