Loved your Socratic/Patriotic dialogue. I taught The Republic as a grad student teaching assistant many years ago and read the Symposium last year at St. John's in Santa Fe. Will be reading Nicomachean ethics this year. Hope others appreciate your wit.
Sorry PatsFaninVa. My conversation page is acting up. If you don't mind sharing your email, I'd be happy to send you a Word document version of my press release draft, so you are able to track changes and make suggested revisions.
PS - I also know of Lilith as supposedly a very angry little demoness who is pissed off that she never had children. Think about it, the potential mother of all humanity, who screwed up and is childless (I think I remember some legend of her wanting to be on top, and that was that! You'd have to look it up.) The Jewish folklore I'm aware of has her not as the serpent, but as a demoness who does things like fly in open windows and cause crib death. Probably comes from parents who left windows open when it was 40 farenheit outside, and are shocked when the kid gets pneumonia. Who knows.
I know the story of Lilith, which is not biblical in origin, but was concocted to square the two separate creation stories. In the first, "Male and female He created them." In the second, God sees that Adam needs a helpmate, and makes Eve out of his rib. So there's no biblical character "Lilith" in either creation story. The name may be mentioned in some list of demons or somesuch, but again, I don't think most of these names are biblical.
So what you have in the Lilith painting and the accompanying post is really commentary on folklore -- Lilith's not really canonical, at least in Judaism, and probably not in most kinds of Christianity (so it's probably best to omit, from a scholarly point of view.)
Haven't looked at the religion posts today, but will take a look.
Your linguistic skill shame this Frenchman my friend. I lack actual formal English education. But I have no excuse. Some of it is likely just laziness on my part.
I have been toying with the Christian blend of Jewish lore of Eden.
I have an O P in the works. I admit to not liking.
Here is the proposed title.
Is Satan both the Holy Spirit and God’s wife or Asherah?
I will try to show that Satan was the holy spirit and that the trinity was father, son and mother. You likely know that fire and Satan in esoteric terms are good and I wonder if you can bring that out in the loving type terms that I want to foster to show why God favors Satan?
Let me ask in advance if you would like to opine, adjust, slash, or burn my short O P.
If I can impose.
I do not want to blow this one as in a sense, it might be close to what the writers of that myth intended. Jews may have seen the serpent as God's feminine side.
Once again our infrequent moderator crawls out of the sewer with some idle pap that has been posted over and over.. next we will be discussing fraudulent selective service application, oops I forgot that was yesterday..
He proved it, for all to see, but some are blindly hoping that it is not true..
