INTRODUCTION:

Welcome to BobKat's Lair ®

A lair is a home; A castle; A burrow; A haven; a place where one should feel safe. To ensure our safety especially in one's lair, we have laws. And some laws cause more harm than good!

This is a good place. There's lots to see and do. It's apolitical while providing non-partisan news about politics, which we can't escape.

Check out my aquarium and feed the fish; check out my post(s), my favorite media list and the many links to websites that promote what I feel is important.

Time for the awakening...

That is what my goal is here... to present topics which highlight the plight of people. Why, 2000 years after Caesar Augustus, are we still a people being hurt? With all our advancements in technology, medicine, communications, why are we a people still being hurt? Human nature hasn't changed much, but that doesn't mean it isn't time now for that to happen, and it is undoubtedly happening - hard to see however. This blog is part of that change and a witness to it.

GENESIS... THE ORIGIN OF HUMANKIND - PART 4

Edited Sept. 25, 2010; 11AM

Here is where we begin to discover a paradox, between Genesis 1:26, the sixth day of CREATION and Genesis 2.

CREDIT for Biblical Quotes: DEVOTIONS - THE OLD TESTAMENT ONLINE


From Genesis 1:

"26 Then God said, ‘Let us make humankind* in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth,* and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."
"27 So God created humankind* in his image, in the image of God he created them;* male and female he created them."
"28God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.’ 29God said, ‘See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food."



Those passages from the Old Testament, suggest man and woman were created together, on the sixth day of Creation. And God said: "Be fruitful and multiply..." In addition, "God created man and woman in his image..." Years later, Jesus, the Son of God said much the same thing. But that is for another post. Fact is... humankind were created on the sixth day... with dominion over the Earth, and encouraged to "be fruitful and multiply". Man and woman procreating.

Which brings us to Genesis, Chapter 2, verse 7:
"7then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground,* and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being." 
"8And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed." "9Out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil."

Man, reborn, after God rested on the seventh day.
"15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it." 
"16And the Lord God commanded the man, ‘You may freely eat of every tree of the garden." 
"17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die."

Well we already knew that was coming - Drug Prohibition... "The forbidden fruit!" But what drugs, if drugs the tree was? And apples, really?? It doesn't specify apples... at least not yet.

Adam working away, alone, tilling fields. Sounds like history when our species changed from hunters and gatherers, around 75,000 years, ago if I remember correctly, to set down roots and become farmers.
"18 Then the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner."
"19So out of the ground the Lord God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name." 
"20The man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every animal of the field; but for the man* there was not found a helper as his partner."

Gone now are the dinosaurs, and modern animals now populate the earth. And poor Adam, alone somehow,  tilling the fields, though we know humankind exist, so I would have to assume that Adam, with dominion over the earth, was not only working hard at something new to humanity, but also probably pretty depressed without a partner. So God tries one more thing:
"21So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then he took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh." 
"22And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man." 
"23Then the man said, ‘This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Woman."

Why the paradox of the creation? Genesis One, and Genesis Two? The answer is, humankind evolved during the millions of years that God rested.

After God awoke, something happened, something changed.
