Here’s the Youtube recording of our conversation at “Beyond the Trailer Park” on January 21, 2015. I explain quite a bit about ancient religion, mythology, the Bible, Moses and the Exodus!
While many people globally are ranting and raging about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, few people seem concerned about the Chinese invasion and occupation of Tibet, with its bloody massacres and cultural destruction. Compared to the Palestinian culture, the Tibetans are a relatively peaceful and gentle people, and we hardly hear a peep out of them about […]
Fascinating discovery! Evidence of Stone Age Cultic Phallic Symbols Found in Israel By: Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu Signs of the agricultural revolution in the Stone Age were found in northern Israel. Archaeologists discovered remains of an ancient village, along with sexual symbols. Plans to build a new railway line in the north have lead to the discovery […]
This discovery predates the composition of much of the Bible, other than folkloric tales passed along mainly orally for a couple of centuries, perhaps. Note that the sun’s rays are considered to bring or reveal the “divine presence” in the temple. As scholars and students of ancient religion and mythology know, the Israelites engaged in […]
The latest attempt at anchoring the Bible in “history” has come with the discovery of a small seal in Israel that purportedly provides “evidence” of the existence of the biblical hero Samson, renowned for his strength and heroism. The Jewish Hercules, Samson went on an unstoppable rampage, slaughtering the Philistines, but was done in by […]
Tradition holds that the Pentateuch, composed of the first five books of the Bible, also called the Torah, was written by the Israelite lawgiver Moses, who is held up therein as the major prophet of the Lord of the universe. The claim that Moses wrote the Pentateuch is not sustainable scientifically; nor are the notions […]
“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…” -Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan Oy gevalt! When I read the article below about the planned megamosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, I buried my head in my hands and said, “Oh, my god.” Perhaps it […]
Since anti-woman sexism is an integral part of Ultra-Orthodox Judaism, the only way these women are going to succeed is if they stop following Ultra-Orthodox Judaism and stop producing children who do likewise. Otherwise, they’re stuck with the Abrahamic misogyny. Fortunately, this group of fervent misogynists is tiny; unfortunately, many of them have beaucoup bucks, […]
I know I’ll get in trouble for this one, but I can’t help it. Lessee: Barack Obama makes a speech in Cairo full of erroneous claims about Islam’s great contributions to the world, appoints Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood members to his cabinet and supports the “popular uprising” of Egypt. Now the “free” Egyptian people are calling […]
This article clarifies my position vis-a-vis these hot-button issues. As I have demonstrated in my work over the past couple of decades, there is always room for discussion of Jewish supremacy, as outlined in the Old Testament and Talmud. I have criticized this hegemony in my book The Christ Conspiracy as well. There are many […]
Every so often, Israeli archaeologists make an announcement that others run with in attempts to prove the Bible a history book. Few serious scientists and non-believing scholars today view the Bible as an infallible history textbook, but that fact will not stop the faithful from trying to fit each piece of pottery, every building block […]
A Jewish man and his daughter were recently arrested, him for moving his lips and her for nodding her head, as if praying, while on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem! A strange story that raises questions about the hostile perception of Israelis and their treatment of Muslims. I have often wondered why, if the Israeli […]
Three cheers for Israel giving up the Gaza Strip to Palestinian autonomy! Now the Gazans are so much better off, as we can see from the attempts by Hamas to impose strict Islamic or sharia law on these benighted people. I’m no Israel-cheerleader, especially as concerns its ancient history, as well as its modern founding. […]
We have heard much about the brutality on both sides in this battle over a small piece of land at the heart of so much trauma globally. In the massively slanted media widespread around Europe and the American “lefty liberal” media, we constantly hear about abuses by Israelis against the poor, innocent “Palestinians.” Such lopsidedness […]
A 99-year-old Ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman, Rachel Krishevsky, recently died, leaving behind some 1,400 descendants. Yes, you read that right. It seems her 11 children went on to produce 150 grandchildren for her, who then went on to have a boatload of kids, and so on.
