During the editing process, on occasion I would remove text I would find now to be a diversion from the topic at hand and because of that it disrupted the flow of the main argument. This was the case with the story about the St. Sophia Church in Istanbul, Turkey. What follows is the now removed from the manuscript text, to which I added some context reflecting certain points related to the general theme of religion made in the book under different circumstances.
The word philosophy comes from the Greek philo sophia, meaning love of wisdom. A rather strange fact considering that same as in the case of Orthodox Judaism, based on the story of Adam and Eve in the Bible knowledge is associated in the Christian religion with the otherwise made-up notion of capital sin, one of the most impressive Christian churches ever was Saint Sophia. Also known as the Great Church, or the Church of the Divine Wisdom, it was built in Constantinople, Byzantium, today's Istanbul, Turkey, between 532 and 537 CE. Numerous fires and earthquakes have repeatedly destroyed it along the time. It was rebuilt, destroyed again, rebuilt again, and eventually it changed owners. Today, the church is known as Hagia Sophia.
To be able to implement this act of deception, they would indoctrinate Earth-humans from an early age with the false notion that knowledge was forbidden fruit and truth-seeking was the capital sin that caused the fall of man from this cursing, mean and mad God’s grace, a God they were supposed to love and worship no matter what. That deliberately induced twisted mentality when it came to the Earth-human's life purpose was what threw the people of the planet into the Dark Age. This prolonged period of spiritual darkness many of them would not even be aware of is something we only now begin to emerge from.
