"Theologians speak of a one and only mighty consciousness, their all-knowing god with supernatural powers, and conveniently forget the Bible says we were made in this god’s image. That means we too are endowed with high consciousness, and that we too have those “supernatural” powers. Pretending to be in opposition with each other, promoters of religious belief and positivist materialist scientists are collaborating actually in what is a global effort to keep Earth people unaware of their spiritual nature and this way of their true potential. Their other objective is to keep them in the dark about their true origin, and this reminds us of something else we find in the Bible that makes little to no sense.
When we pay close attention to the actual meaning of certain passages in the Adam and Eve story, it becomes obvious that by committing the so-called original sin when he fed on the fruits of the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil, man experienced significant consciousness awareness growth and spiritual illumination, something known as enlightenment. To deflect attention from that, according to the version of the story in the Book of Genesis, as you are going to see this is not the only version we have, Adam and Eve become aware they are naked. As a result, from now on they would live with a sense of shame, says the Bible. God decides to expel them from his private garden, but before that happens, he does actually something very human: He handsaws garments for both of them to cover their nakedness. That little detail creates though the mother of all theological dilemmas.
The Bible says god created man in his image and, sure enough, the god of the Bible does act and speak like humans do. Theologians also claim god is aware of everything, and the question arising fluently from that is South Park funny: Since man and god were mirror images of each other, was the Genesis god aware of his nakedness? The Bible says nothing about that, but the logical answer could only be, yes, he was. He was naked and aware of it too.
No doubt about it, a god who looked like the man he created and behaved like flesh and blood males did, must have been as naked as Adam and Eve were and also as anatomically correct. However, while the implication is god was well aware of the fact that he was naked, the Bible does not say he was ashamed of that, as was the case with Adam and Eve. All in all, it appears the naturist movement, or nudism, might have gotten actually a much earlier start than previously thought. It is either that, or the story in the Bible is not true.
Picture if you could a naked human-like male god chitchatting with a naked Adam and a naked Eve under the trees of the Garden of Eden. As the Christian Right would describe that, decadence was at its peak in god’s kingdom, and Michelangelo came very close to depicting this biblical reality on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. In fact, he came a little too close to that for the hypocritical moral comfort of the church, and after his death, the church hired Daniele da Volterra to cover up some of the genitals. During the restoration work done in the 1980s, additions by other artists were removed, and yet the Volterra breeches, which is how his fig leaves and loincloths are known to the art aficionado, were left untouched. It appears the church did not like the fact that, pun intended, Michelangelo went by the book.
Then there is an additional doctrinal problem caused by this case of bad writing and editing in Genesis: Is being aware a godly quality, or a curse? In other words, is being aware a bad consequence of the original sin, as the Bible and the church dogma imply when it comes to Adam and Eve experiencing shame as a result of becoming aware of their nakedness, or is this something that makes us like gods, as one of the Genesis gods states: “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:22) The church cannot have it both ways, and yet it certainly went for that for almost two thousand years now."
