The Man From Earth #2


...you didn't claim to be the son of god?

Began as a schoolhouse and ended as a temple.
I said I had a master that was greater than myself.
I never said he was my father. I wanted to teach what I learned.


I never claimed to be king of the jews,

I never walked on water, I never raised the dead.
I never spoke of divine except in the sense of human goodness on earth.


You weren't Jesus.Were you?


This has gone far enough.These people are very upset.
The time has come when you must admit this is a hoax...A lie.
I ask you now...I demand it that you tell these people the truth.
Give them closure.

The Man From Earth


...the philosophical teachings of jesus are buddhism
with a hebrew accent, kindness, tolerance, brotherhood, love, a ruthless realism acknowledging that life is as it is here on earth, here and now.
The kingdom of god, meaning goodness, is right here, where it should be.


"I am what I am becoming."

That's what the buddha brought in.


And that's what I taught.
But a talking snake make a lady eat an apple, so we're screwed.
Heaven and hell were peddled so priests could rule through seduction and terror, save our souls that we never lost in the first place.

It's been said that buddha and jesus
would laugh or cry if they'd known what was done in their name.


... and if there is a creator, he'd probably feel the same way.


I see ceremony, ritual, processions, genuflecting,
moaning, intoning, venerating cookies and wine, and I think...
It's not what I had in mind.
