About the Booble, Part One
The Holy Booble consists of two volumes, the O.T. and the N.T. Some of the poetry in the King James edition of the O.T. is marvelous, notably Ecclesiastes. Most of the rest of the Booble is junk. In the hands of Jebus worshipers, the N.T. is particularly dangerous, since it promulgates the existence of a person with little to no historical basis. All that is known is that a rabbi was born in the "Holy" Land and came to be known as Reb (for Rabbi) Yeshua (for Joshua). It is possible the "Jesus Christ" part was in part derived from the words "Yeshua" and "Krishna," the similarity of the names being noted by Massey, Blavatsky, and many other Jesus disprovers. In all probability, the person or prophet we today call Jesus Christ was invented whole cloth by early Christians based upon pagan precedents including Dionysus, Osiris, Tammuz, Attis (or Attys), and any one of dozens of other death-and-resurrection deities the world over. The biggest problem with the Booble is that it contradicts itself from verse to verse; that, and the tendency of Booblists to "prove" the existence of "God" with the following remarkable observation: "Of course God exists. The Booble says so."
