Biblical Series IV: Adam and Eve: Self-Consciousness, Evil, and Death

Reproduction, l'alimentation, le traitement, l'apparence

I turned my attention in this lecture to the older of the two creation accounts in Genesis: the story of Adam and Eve. In its few short paragraphs, it covers: 1. the emergence of human self-consciousness; 2. mankind's attendant realization of vulnerability, mortality, and death; 3. the origin of the capacity for willful evil, as the ability to exploit that newly-realized vulnerability; 4. the emergence of shame as a consequence of that realization; 5. the shrinking from divine destiny that occurred when shame emerged; and 6. the beginning of true history, with the self-conscious toil that life in history entails. Impossible. Amazing. Breathtaking. The only story that can perhaps match it in terms of impact per sentence is that of Cain and Abel, which we discuss in the next lecture: number five in this twelve part series.

  1. When he said that the photon of light would not have been emitted had the eye not been there to receive it...I paused the video and sat there for five minutes trying to get my brain around that fact. That does not make sense in my brain. Reality is really weird.
  2. Loving the mind workout. My curiosity is finally making a post college come back and Mr. Peterson is stoking my "information foraging" instincts.
  3. Adam is not negro
  4. Increíble Jordan Peterson, es muy interesante.
  5. The church started teaching man-made doctrine in the Middle ages (which Christ actively opposed while on earth). They didn't believe in the Being filled with the Holy Spirit and doing the works of God, which is what Christ charged. Healing the sick, casting out devils, was the church's charge- which it still does if you know the right places to go! Morris Cerullo's meetings are usually powerfully full of the presence of God. Awesome! So, "religion" is what failed mankind, which the church allowed. It was not God's plan to leave human kind in sickness, disease, poverty and suffering with no hope!
  6. Freud was an idiot. Everything he said was nonsense. I wish people would stop quoting him.
  7. The speaker spends most of his time speculating in very attractive ways.... to humans who seek easy answers that come in nice, neat packages. There are many points that could be argued. The first of which is wouldn't big cats have been more more of a threat to early hominids than snakes. One doesn't have to be a PhD to think about cats as bigger, stronger, faster and smarter than snakes, and therefore more likely to be successful predators of hominids. Maybe cats did not become the symbol of the devil because they are furry, pretty and admirable. Maybe because big cats were more acceptable to early hominids as successful predators than smaller, slower snakes. How could something without limbs get by me and kill my baby? And of course its completely unthinkable that JK Rowling would be smart enough or resourceful enough to utilize an ancient symbol. What an ***.
  8. Maybe Christianity is returning in the oral form?
  9. Changed my life. Perspective is everything.
  10. I would really like your opinion on this Dr. Peterson. I did an Ignite talk in 2012 on Adam and Eve, outlining their awareness of good and evil and their learnt ability to blame others: I also quote the same poet at the end. The similarities are quite striking. Here is the video with subtitles, original is in the description
  11. God, he gives so much reading assignments, some day I will finish all those books.

    some day.
  12. It would be really awesome if you wrote a commented version of the Bible.
  13. It's the Living Word!
  14. I paused my porn for this 😂👌🏻
  15. I think the reason the far left goes after Peterson so vehemently is because his message will bring people to faith.
    (I don't necessarily mean religious, tho that is likely for people so inclined, but maybe faith in themselves or something similar)
  16. 1:39:25 that is the reason for the evolution of alcohol 😁
  17. Peterson's words at 1:56:07 relating to monogamy... roughly half of Africa, the Middle-East and South Asia have polygamy as their main marital tradition - not to mention polyandrious societies etc. That is a lot of people, you cannot say marraige is unquestionably 1:1 in its natural state... that is a beleif, not a fact. You are not better than half the world, that is ideological Peterson.... ideological superiority which you know is dangerous. Not one way is correct and you should know that. That is wrong!

    In response to the question surrounding the double helix 2:24:00 approx. - Francis Crick won the nobel prize with a man named Watson. On LSD he "saw" the double helix and used this vision. It may be that, people from those times, seen the same thing. That is a plausible reason.
  18. "Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker, those who are nothing but potsherds among the potsherds on the ground" (Isaiah 45:9). Did the humans' "abstracted ideal" create the world? Or was just some non-conscient, non-personal Big Bang? WOE...
  19. Is that where everyone vs everyone else started as in protect one self who gives a stuff about others
