  •  The OT (3+ / 0-)

    is a story of people from north and east africa and southwest asia...we assume european presence because europeans have largely been telling the story for the bulk of the last two millenia... but there are no europeans in the OT... not in Eden, not east of Eden in Nod, not in Shinar, not in Ur, not in Canaan, not in Egypt, not in Babylon...not anywhere. The first time we see actual europeans in bible texts is in Maccabees, if one accepts the apochrypha as canon, and in Matthew if one does not...

    Fear doesn't just breed incomprehension. It also breeds a spiteful, resentful hate of anyone and everyone who is in any way different from you.
