Caution: Pro-life / God thread

Posted by   + Show Post

I spotted this on FB and thought it was excellent

Image may contain: one or more people


In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”

“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”

Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”

To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”

May be this was one of the best explanations to the concept of GOD.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us...Hebrews 12:1

I'm being very sincere. I had a dream many years ago about Jesus and a woman I know was Jesus in my dream. I've studied the goddesses of the ANE, I've read a lot of Jewish feminist theory, and went to hear Carol Christ speak and read some of her work. I've read a bunch about imminent divine vs transcendent divine.

I don't know Tactis.


Quoting 1776: Nope! you're free to have your opinions, I just detected passive aggressiveness, not sincerity in your tone.

As I did again with your Jesus comment. The historicity of Jesus is accepted by mainstream historians.

What do you think of Tactis' claims?


Quoting Bookwormy: No I see female divinity as imminent and male divinity as transcendent. This ditty is speaking of an imminent divine being, which has historically virtually always been female. Now there are even theories that Jesus wasn't a real historical figure. In which case I think she was female as well! 😉

Quoting 1776: Aw, how very literal of you! its an analogy. But, sure it *could* be a goddess, the point is to consider a creator as a possibility.

Quoting Bookwormy: See, I think it is very goddess oriented. Especially when it talks about the mother as "Her". Clearly that's the goddess.

Quoting MissAndree: Nope.

I can get behind a good goddess story, but this one just didn't do it for me. The agenda is far too thinly veiled for my taste, lol.

I guess I see what I want. It comes from studying original and then contemporary feminist midrash.

You have given me something to look up and learn about, thank you!
