Questioning Religion

8 04 2008

Yatzer has shots of a neat installation in Paris:

Designer Robert Stadler is creating a lighting installation inside the church of Saint Paul in Paris during the Nuit Blanche all-night cultural festival in the city on 6 October.

Nuit Blanche is an annual festival that started in Paris in 2002, with museums, galleries and other venues open all night. The idea has since spread to other cities around the world. See Wikipedia for more information.

The glowing orbs look randomly placed from underneath, but when looked at from the entrance of the church form a question mark.  I like it.

Let me ask you

How could it be that God created man when

1. Jesus was born 2000 years ago in Israel but we all are to believe that GOD created the heavens and the earth, which was 600 billion years ago and therefore man and woman.
And the first humans evolved 100,000 years ago.

2. If Jesus was born in Israel, then he would have been a jew, meaning the holy father would have to been jewish as well.
Which was the supposed religion in that region.
But then Jesus decided to change the beliefs of the religion and create his own, which defied GOD’s commandment thou shalt not idol anything other than him.

What was the first religion?

As a practical matter early hominids probably tried to explain the unexplainable by imagining invisible oogly booglies (or ascribing special powers to visible objects) and attempted to placate them with rituals and sacrifices.
Archaeological digs indicate rituals (like burials) by Neanderthals that may have had a religious component.
Evidence of ritual behavior in Africa has been found as far back as 70,000 years.
Cave paintings that go back 20 to 50 thousand years look very much like some sort of attempt to manipulate supernatural forces.

But the first recorded religion was 6000 years ago in Mesopotamia.
The first religion involved the Mother Earth Goddess or the Venus Figurines, associated with prehistoric cultures.
People started writing about 5500 years ago or 3500 BC.

The Mesopotamians & Ancient Egyptians were the first known to have written.

Interesting how that is now IRAQ
