Eliot Friedman


Is making a case for there being a single author of a story spanning genesis all the way to the David’s court history. It does make for interesting reading. I have not finished it yet and I think it will take some time since I may need to look up some verses in my bible as I read along.

In a different story, is it possible the whole town of Sodom and Gomorrah had wind of the visitors who had sought lodging from Lot and all boys and men wanted a piece of the action? Were they all sexually starved? Who did the poster back then? Or the whole town was on telegram and someone sent nudes?

And still on this Sodom business; is it possible that in a town of several hundred, every damn person was involved in debauchery? Is it not more convincing that this is taking liberties with fact?

  1. “Is it not more convincing that this is taking liberties with fact?” Nope. Not the Bible. Every other religious book, yes. But the Bible. No. No way. Impossible. Nonsense. I mean, COME ON!!!! Get real!! What possible benefit would there be to anyone to just make shit up and say God said it? Hahahahahaha!!! Oh, I’m dyin’ over here! 🙂

    No, it is not possible that everyone was involved in debauchery. Yes, it is more convincing that the biblical story took liberties with the facts (assuming, of course, that the story is based on an actual event). What might have occurred is that two adjacent urban communities, perhaps named Sodom and Gomorrah, were destroyed by some natural disaster (e.g. a meteorite a little larger than the one which rocked Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013) and a legend sprang up among the peoples of that region. Not knowing what caused the disaster, they would’ve naturally explained it from their spiritual/mythological perspective (e.g. the wrath of god).
