Freeman Stephen wrote:Its funny how when the bible was written (or even translated), the word "man" referred to both the male and female varieties of men, but today the word has a maleness to it and the only word which can be used to clearly describe "man the creature" rather than "man the sex" is "human".
If we are to take the UN definition of "human being" - a creature of reason and conscience - we find that most men (the creature) are not actually human beings. If memory serves me correct, the original definition for human in blacks was "monster" and this makes alot of sense when you consider that there were creatures of reason and conscience who felt a moral obligation to propogate the truth that the planets were not travelling around the earth, but the sun. Such monsters threatened to destroy the status quo which had for so long corrupted the concept of god to ensure, not their survival, but their total dominance over the earth.
That's interesting Freeman Stephen, Man and Woman (Wo, means "take out" in Hebrew)
Being "reason and conscience" from the Biblical context. Years ago when my body was young it was common for people to say that Human beings were different because we had "reason and conscience" where as animals didn't have "conscience", now that's frowned upon by many.
Human? I don't know what that Hu means.
And the sun, moon, etc, cycles were all described in the book of Enoch (who was the first prophet, but the churches took that book out.) And Stone Henge used Soni lunar reckoning, and the 56 six posts Aurbry circuit used the star Sirius as a very easy way to keep dates.
The margin of error, after 49 years, was around 4 minutes and 17 seconds... based on nothing more than counting posts.
A major check and balance system for precise reckoning existed in observing the Equinox rises and sets, but the 56 posts could be used to teach initiates the mathematical basis of the Sabbatical cycle concept and to keep-track of the progress of the Sabbatical Calendar position.
