The human-being created God
A provoking title
and used many times by writers like J.J. Rouseau or nowadays Messadié and I also came to this conclusion before I read these
Before we continue about the Gods and all passed
civilizations it is important to understand how we came to the complex of
In which period the human being starts to be
We have about this topic not so many archeological
indications and the writings are very poor or better to say not present when we
speak about the period of 3000 BC Christ.
20.000 – 30.000 years ago the human being should have
asked himself or herself the question about this issue. This at the moment that
they realized that life is a deadly
(venereal disease). In France they say disease sexual transferred
Here we do have a conflict situation. The first
instinct of the human and all what lives is preservation of life. How is it
possible that a person, who is of the opinion that he is brilliant disappears
from this world?
A solution must be found. Whatever the cost will
be, as the passengers of the Titanic, start to understand that the end starts
to be fatal. The creation of heavens, paradises and Champs Elysée is made than
very quickly in this status of consternation.
By the way the veneration of the deaths is very
related to these fundamental questions.
In the past a
shaman, sorcerer or medicine man who also ruled the village alone or in
cooperation with the head of the tribe managed the religions.
These tribes were
normally not bigger than 50 or 100 inhabitants.
In mid of 4000 BC
the Sumerians settled in Mesopotamia and by their genius organization they
created very quickly added value to their work in agriculture and especially
the irrigation. Caused by this it was possible to build big cities for instance
UR, this city is the most known and stipulated in the Bible that Abraham came
from this town. The author leaves the full responsibility to the writers of
this sacral book. Because such kind of historical facts are really dubious.
It is impossible to
harmonize such a lot of people in one person.
The headman of the
village became in cooperation with his family a potentate who was practicing in
the mean time also religion.
He used, the
religious wants of the people. Because they wanted to secure their lives in the
hereafter. Of course the Headman became rich with this practice and used the
Gods for this, because it was very difficult to satisfy a god. So a lot had to
In the beginning the
most important actors for those Gods was visible in the firmament like;
- The Sun
- The Moon
With their names at the Sumerians;
At the Egyptians we find the same, the Sun God with
the name Râ. After a couple of generations those seigneurs and “kings’ thought
and acted also like that they were God on earth. The pharaoh is the best
example for this. But let’s stick to our Sumerians, they became God with theirs
names related to the planet system. Those planets those were visible with the
eye at that time.
In the same period we see that religion became so
important that in fact a new authority was established. Controlled by the
existing authority and by placing a royal family in this religious authority.
During the thousands of years after this period a very close symbiosis was
realized between those two authorities. The past century is a good example of a
not realistic relationship between the orthodox church and the communistic regime
of the ex URSS.
The separation between Church and state is around 2700
BC but the terminology is not correct. This is a realization of our modern
society since a century. The king created different ministries to rule his
country, from which the ministry of religion played an important role and
sometimes the main role and than it became automatically a theocratic one.
We are already far away from our forefathers of the
Neolithic periods who lived in the northern hemisphere up to the arctic pole
shamanistic and who were in the tropical areas animistic. The latest ones saw
the ghosts of the Gods (good and evil) in every materiel alive or not. This is
for sure a more realistic vision of life than our presents monotheistic believe
in an astral God (our Lord who is in heaven since the Sumerians). Our
forefathers and nations lived for thousands of years in harmony with this
environment. The cutting of a tree or
the killing of an animal like a bear, without making the usual rituals and
making offers could traumatize the human being even bringing him in a mortal
stage. The human realized that he was a part of nature and was happy with that,
without believing that he was at the end the sum mum of the evolution.
The city created the state religion or is it maybe the
other way around?
One is for sure; one process is not stand-alone. When
Malraux writes: “The next centenary will be religious or not”
In the beginning it is not clear, but it is more
understandable when we say a city or a country with 20 % of the people without
God neither a command is not manageable.
David Erwing Ducan in his book “Le temps conté”
discussing the downfall of Rome give a clear description regarding the function
of a religion; “as the barbarians soon said good bye to their idols by
embracing a religion who ordered an absolute obedience stronger than ever the
previous one was requesting from them. In fact the church did not want to have
the authority over an area or over an army but more over souls.
This authority started to control for the coming
centenaries, all the aspects of life from al the believers. Up till the boots
of Big Brother is watching you. If you look how texts from the bible is changed
by fanatics or deleted or completely rewritten as happened around 400 AC. Nowadays we still are
in this “newspeak” without discussing the horrible inquisition. Orwell got his
inspiration by the evil empire. Regan he wandered in 1920 – 1930 between the
ultra left, communistic resistance in Spain.
This Labor paradise was a pale copy from Christianity
and had the function like an atheistic religion. We have
to fear that religions in the future will be the result from this and will end
up in the same totalitarian systems but then in a different setup.
Enjoy that we can breathe and we have the profit of
this period in which Christianity begs forgiveness and the so seeming decline
of totalitarianism red and brown!
We can make a bet that religions in the future will be
heavily inspirited by the factor of ecology if we want to continue to live. The
urbanization of our planet started 5500 years ago and can not continue forever.
The religions are like the civilizations that means dreadful. You see some
symptoms for change; in our modern society, human rights, democracy, legal
intervention, correctness in policy, one world, anti racism, terrorism ecology,
you name it. All in a very nice sauce
called caritas business. These are all factors to create new religions.
The ecology is a spiritual concept that in fact better
is related to the ultra conservatives.
The struggle for life (Darwin) you remember! But this
respect for ecology is occupied by watermelons (green outside, but red inside).
This is not what remained from the cold war. In that period the Russian block
was very popular for all oppositions against the free western world and
pacifism and ecology were a part of that.
This all together is the basic for our future
religions, but it is not yet clear what kind of Gods our children have to face.
Let’s go back to our bacchanal old Gods.
Few writings about this period are
present. It started
2000 BC and we are forced to replace ourselves in the writings of 1000 years or
more later, (the Kings lists made in cuneiform writing) The writers about the
genealogy of the Kings of that time, they wanted to bring them back to their
great grand time and the important mythological great grand fathers. This list
of Kish city is very instructive. She gives us the information about the
genealogy after deluge and starts with ‘sic’. The deluge will come. After
deluge, kingdom and kings are sent out of heaven.
It is the same as the title of this chapter, to change
to role and it is in fact the human being who sacral zed their kings and
projected them in the world of the stars. Since then all religions got their
inspirations form the genius creation of universe. Nowadays we pray about the
Lord who is in Heaven and when I write these words 13 May 1999. Ascension Day,
the Day of the constructors of Elevators (my profession), the Christians
memorialize that Jesus lift off to Heaven and becomes a half God and for others
a 100 % God.
The king list of Orouk begins with 5 kings, we will
find them back in the epos of Gilgamesh and they are still the base of our
civilization of today. The lifetime of these kings is discussed in chapter 3
“secret dates the Kings list of Kish”.
The Gods who we will discuss now and begin in this
period are an important help for a couple dates, who where not yet solved up
