Nations nuggets. Spiritual narrative

“The holy bible, both the Old and New versions, were compilation projects that spanned hundreds of years with many contributors reflecting the spiritual narratives of their era and place. Given our current understanding of our niche in the grand scheme of things, you have to wonder, what’s the point of holding on to stories that describe a god and company as B movie characters in a often incoherent storyline. Hard to believe comes to mind. Just say’n.”

“Ask yourself, what kind of mind demands to be worshipped for doing what came naturally and why should anyone feel compelled to be subservient to a benevolent benefactor? Forever!” Nationofnope

Ron is a third generation Portland Oregon native. He is a husband, father of three, grandfather of three, Combat veteran (11B-5U), Eagle Scout, past President of Portland Civic Theatre, past member of Portland Active 20/30 club and retired Real Estate Broker. Just your average citizen living a secure retirement with his wife of 44 years and three rescue cats. In recognition of being mistaken as often as correct Ron personifies the monicker “Nationofnope”. Oh ya, and a screaming, raving, hair on fire anti-theist. Any agitation people experience from reading his thoughts is intended to make people question their foundational beliefs.

  1. Hello Ron. I find it incredible some people feel there are no errors or mistakes in the bible with all the translations and versions. There has to be, that just makes sense. We know from the fragments and oldest versions we have that there were translation errors and that what is believed to be part of the bible now is different than it was in the “beginning”.
    You ask why hold on to these old stories. I just bought my spouse a book on old Norse gods, magic, and runes. “The Sorcerer’s Screed is the world‘s most comprehensive collection of Nordic spells. Each spell comes with a diagram and specific instructions for their use and purpose.” “This is a revised edition of the original publication where all symbols and runes have been graphically redrawn, a project lead by the designer Arnar Fells Gunnarsson who also designed the book and it’s beautiful and accessible layout.” I think it is all silliness, but the spouse loves this kind of stuff. I do not know if he believes in any of it, but he enjoys reading about it all. Maybe that is the same for Christians and other religious people. Hugs
