You can easily assume him to take the Old Testament as history, but that would be a wrong assumption. You can just as easily assume he doesn’t take the Old Testament as history. Examine Joseph Campbell’s Transformation of Myth Through Time, page 193. He discusses the use of ergot in the Greek Eleusi...

No I am not satisfied with your personal attacks. I notice how you are off topic and attacking me personally rather than dealing with the subject that Moses is not a historical character. Secondly, you are not polite. Thirdly, you have done a poor job trying to identify with me. Please stick to the ...

Okay, what does:

Just like to add, concerning all your statement, inclusive of those of myself that

mean?

'your' is plural. 'Statement' is singular.

what about: inclusive of those of myself that --

has no meaning in English.

The Old Testament and Talmud are not books of history and are not evidence that Moses ever existed. He's a mythological character. Can you present any ancient historical source about Moses. NO! Because they don't exist. The parts you refernce in the Bible were written around 300 BC. Moses is suppose...

jufa You are stupid. Your source 1863... Before modern scholarship established that the bible is not history, it's mythology. Read the collective works of Joseph Campbell. Try some sources less than 100 years old. Here's one: "The biographies of saviors are symbolic of the meaning of the saviors tea...

Religion of Upper Egypt is not stating fact on page 11, it is a myth.

Jufa, so much to discuss. Just because you claim not to hear history speaking, doesn't mean anything, you are narrow minded. People confessing to beliefs is not FACT. People believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. That doesn't mean these people exist. Examine any of Joseph Campbell's lectures o...

The evidence is history. The Jews were never in Egypt. You cannot find even one thread of Jewish clothing or one piece of broken Jewish pottery from Egypt. Yet there is abundant archaeological evidence of the Hyksos. Furthermore, the Egyptians never had slavery, not in the conventional sense. They h...

To bad there never was a Moses, he is purely a mythological character. But, as Joseph Campbell said: "Facts don't seem to matter for religious people."

Okay, let’s get something straight. Myth presents a story literally, the plot is literal, but the theme is metaphorical, transcendent of the plot. The Passion fits that formula perfectly. It presents the myth directly from the Gospels; it’s in the reading of the theme that the metaphor is introduced...
