Joseph Chiappalone was born in Italy and migrated with his family to Australia in He obtained a Medical Degree from the University of Melbourne and practised general medicine for almost 20 years.
In he began writing on philosophy and metaphysics. He has written Gnostic explanations to various areas of knowledge. There are no "sacred cows" as far as he is concerned. Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will, To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. It was Mark Twaina True Being, who said "Most people are bothered by those passages in Scripture which they cannot understand; but as for me, I always noticed that the passages in Scripture which trouble me most are those that I do understand.
In the recent history of this planet, no other book has been used so often to inflict so much guilt, pain and suffering and to cause more conflict, disharmony and war than this evil, distorted collection of useless and garbled legends, myths and plagiarized half-truths. Even to this very day, children are taught with the ardour of brainwashers that one reason why Christianity is the TRUE religion is because the word of "God" is written in the Bible.
Supposedly it is authentic, authoritative and indisputable because it can be traced back in an unbroken line to the time of Jesus in the case of the New Testament, and to the very cradle of civilization before David, Moses, Abraham, etc. It is a bluff on the part of the evil authorities to stifle the Truth. Often in Todo Está Bien = Its Alright - Gino Soccio - Cara A Cara past, those who disputed Kinderlied - Früchte des Zorns - Zwischen Leben Und Überleben authenticity and validity of the Bible were dealt with by being slaughtered.
Any critical discussion of the Bible was anathema and, in fact, for a long time during the Dark and Middle Ages, possession of a Bible written in the vernacular carried a death penalty. And the execution was carried out by the church hierarchy.
Consider these few scattered examples which dictated conditions to the victims of the so-called Christianity that arose from Judaism:. At the turn of the first century AD, a Christian manual called the Didache gave instructions to distinguish between True and false prophets. OF course any who were declared false were slaughtered. In AD, Tertullian, the Christian theologian, declared that anyone who denied the Resurrection is a heretic. Heresy meant the death penalty!
In AD the so-called Christian Church officially declared that any opposition to its own recently formulated Nicene Creed in favour of others, must be punished by the death Infinita Desolazione - Grimness - At The Beginning God Created Scum and it was restated that unauthorized possession of a Bible was punishable by death.
In Pierre Bruys was burnt at the stake for complaining about Church excesses while in the Inquisition in Toulouse again publically forbad Bible reading by all laymen. In the Papal Bull "Cum inter nonnullos" declared that it was 89 BPM - Fishgulish* - Drum Crazy Volume Two to say that Jesus and his Apostles were poor.
The Inquisitors were ordered to prosecute any who believed Jesus was a poor man. The group of called the Spiritual Franciscans, who insisted that Jesus was poor, were all burnt at the stake alive.
In burning of books against the authority of the Church was ordered by Papal Bull and in William Tyndale was burned at the stake for having translated the Bible into English without the church's approval. One may well ask: What was there Infinita Desolazione - Grimness - At The Beginning God Created Scum hide in the Bible that warranted the prohibition of its reading by laymen?
The Bible is a collection of various articles from various sources which were rewritten, perverted, plagiarized, distorted and confused, added to, deleted and abused in order to suit the aims of the Church Hierarchy. It does contain much borrowed Gnostic Truth and Wisdom. Naturally, the church did not want this publicized. This practice of borrowing from others and using as one's own, giving the necessary twists to suit the occasion, was not a practice of antiquity alone. In fact, as we shall see, it continued right up until the 19th century.
There is no unbroken line linking the present day bible to the time of Jesus. The Movin N Groovin - The Three Suns - Movin N Groovin records belong to the 4th century. People such as Jerome, Iraneus, Theodosius, Lactantius Infinita Desolazione - Grimness - At The Beginning God Created Scum others church fathers who "established" church scriptures practised selective editing and extensive revision before destroying that which they felt was not wanted by the Church or was unsafe to keep intact, lest the truth of what they had done be found out.
Hence, what remained was a compilation they created which they were programmed to say represented the Truth. And of course, being minions of the evil Demiurge, they served evil and not the Truth. At that time there was great resistance and protest about what they had done especially from the Infinita Desolazione - Grimness - At The Beginning God Created ScumCoptic and Jewish Christians, but the church hierarchy met these protestors with the sword, labelling them heretics to be destroyed at all costs.
Fortuitously, documents such as those found in the Dead Sea Scrolls and more importantly in the Nag Hammadi Library have given us a greater insight into the literature that was available at the time.
There is no doubt that the texts in the Nag Hammadi library and Dead Sea Scrolls had been declared heretical by the ruling hierarchy which had no respect for facts, and that they were buried by the Essene community which was under attack, in the case of the scrolls, and by the Coptic monks at Nag Hammadi, in the case of the library, in fear of punishment and retribution by the church fathers.
Such punishment would have surely come if it was found that they not only conserved, but also cherished these documents which gave glimpses of the truth the church was trying to destroy. In particular, the Nag Hammadi texts were buried by the Coptic Christian monks of the nearby monastery as an act of defiance and as a fortuitous offering to posterity after the order from the church went out to destroy all documents, books and writings of Gnostic or pagan thought and to only retain those approved by the Church at that time.
This was the time of burial of Nag Hammadi Codices. And of course the power of the Church had grown such that ANY documents of which the Church fathers did not approve were declared of pagan origin or of Gnostic heretics and condemned. This was the self-proclaimed power of the church which allowed it to destroy and execute at will. This is the power it claimed and which allowed it, in its view, to later place its murderous inquisitors above the law!
And so it was that in the Inquisition began to use instruments of torture. The Papal Bull of May 15, authorized the Inquisitors to seize the goods of heretics in Italy, to imprison them, torture and on conviction, to put them to death, all on minimal evidence. Every ruler and citizen was to assist them under threat of excommunication.
In the first four centuries after the death of Jesus, the Christian Church went from a persecuted, spiritually tolerant Gnostic movement with factions including Coptics, Gnostic Christians, Jewish Gnostic-Christians and Gentile Roman Christians to a power-hungry, temporal, super-hierarchial institution which persecuted and oppressed. This latter institution became the so-called New Christian movement.
It proved intolerant and savage. And these traits of intolerance and savagery were to continue and cause much pain and suffering for the next years. Metaphysically, the explanation of why this transition occurred is easy to understand.
Remember, this is a book of metaphysics as much as it is of history. My intention is to expose the essences and motivation behind the acts as well as the physical acts.
Like all other genuine religions and philosophical scholars and seekers, those who embraced the repeated Gnostic message given by Jesus of Nazareth were at first persecuted by the evil, robots and demons. The movement was then One Night - Elvis Presley - 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Cant Be Wrong (Elvis Gold Records, Vol.
2) taken over by the latter and transformed into an oppressive, manipulative institution for the benefit of the evil demiurge. In its transition, the evil church needed to stop men thinking or awakening further to the Truth within them which Jesus, like all the other Messengers of God, had pointed out was within them. It began to oppress them with its own idea of what was right and wrong.
How did he know what was true and what was false? Who gave him the right and authority to judge? He purposely distorted Gnostic thought to make it appear ridiculous and his actions cost many innocent lives. By their actions we know such beings as Evil Archons of the Evil system! Eusebius claimed to have letters from Irenaeus to establish some authenticity, but none were preserved. Without hard evidence pertaining to the claim, we can either accept this to be true or we can say so much was spurious about Irenaeus, including his martyrdom, that most of the information about him and written by him was either fictional exaggeration or plain lies.
Tertullian declared that anyone who denied the Resurrection was a heretic and was to be put to death in response to the Gnostics who knew that the story was plagiarized from the symbolism of other belief systems and called those who literally believed it, as the church tried to force them to, fools! But Tertullian insisted that it had to be believed because "it was ridiculous".
A case of the bigger the lie the greater the chance of it being believed perhaps. In AD, Hippolytus attacked Gnostics, and the Indian Brahmins as well, as being heretics because he did not want to believe the same things. Then in AD he wrote the "Refutation of all heresies" in order to I Got A Feeling - Chris Spedding - Im Not Like Everybody Else and refute the "wicked blasphemy" of the heretics.
What pretentious nonsense this was. Who made him the judge of such things? In AD the Edict of Theodosius stated that Christianity was to be the official religion of the Roman Empire thus evicting other systems and in the following year the Nicene Creed was confirmed by Theodosius 1 at the General Council at Constantinople as the basis of Christianity.
Hence, in the Infinita Desolazione - Grimness - At The Beginning God Created Scum few hundred years, teachings and thoughts, manuscripts, documents, etc.
Everything else was discarded - or so Infinita Desolazione - Grimness - At The Beginning God Created Scum thought. What resulted was a highly-edited compilation of distorted documents which were useless in proclaiming any substantial part of the Truth of things. Although this catechismal precursor appears to have been an adaptation of Jewish teachings, which were no doubt adaptations of earlier cultures, as other aspects of the writings show, it needs to be asked: "From where, from Save A Prayer - Duran Duran - Save A Prayer or from whom did the infallibility to decide such a thing as the testing of apostles and prophets come, especially as it became a matter of life and death for the ones being tested?
The others were false and put to death. As a result of this and other actions, in AD the expulsion of the Gnosic teacher Valentinus from Rome occurred, even though the bishop of Rome did not gain his predominant position as pope until about the year Because of the ease with which people were crucified and murdered for the slightest excuse in those days, we have to assume that these measures were overwhelmingly successful.
No compilation of the Bible has remained intact from the early days. Each version was changed and revised as it was rewritten, so much so, that the modern versions such as the King James version and the Revised American version are based on inadequate works of the Middle Ages. The various codices on which the modern versions are based, such as the codex Vaticanus, Codex Sinaiticus, etc.
In other words they are manifestations of the biblical documents after the Church fathers carried out Up Side Down (Club Remix) - Ashlee - Up Side Down "corrections"! The most ancient of the Hebrew texts are the 2nd century San Franzisco Bay - Waterloo & Robinson - Marianne papyri of Nash found in The King James version was compiled in It is the version which contains the infamous estimate by James Ussher, bishop of Armagh, that "the beginning of time In the 4th century Jerome, papal secretary, collected some Hebrew manuscripts, edited them and produced the Latin Vulgate which differed markedly from the original texts.
Jerome not only destroyed what he thought were all the originals from which he made up his version so the changes could not be discovered, but also refused to identify his helpers whom we guess could have been questioned to divulge the "corrections" Infinita Desolazione - Grimness - At The Beginning God Created Scum had been made.
So much for the truth of things. The King James version relied on collections made by Erasmus in the 16th century.
Erasmus relied on the Byzantine collection assembled in Constantinople between the 4th and 5th centuries and published them in Unafraid to speak out, he criticized the clergy for their ignorance, oppressiveness, wantonness and intolerance. All the above codices differ from one another and from the King James version. No known version of the bible is older than the 4th century.
Hence, if one is asked "Do Infinita Desolazione - Grimness - At The Beginning God Created Scum believe in the Bible? Here are some examples of plagiarism and distortions in the Bible: 1. The Creation myth is based on the Mesopotamian Enuma Elish. The untrue Bible version of the early life of Moses is based on the saga of the Babylonian King Sargon.
