Just wanted to say I really enjoy your contributions here MG! Even aside from the interesting parallels, I just like seeing the little tidbits you find.

I really need to read the Bible more often.

:)  thanks FB!  try as i might, i can't get the Good Book out of my head.  i can't remember if i already said so, but i went to a Calvinist church and my Calvinist preacher was destined to get punked by Bruno:

i would love to hear Bakker talk about his own encounters with religion and how it's changed his work.  huh, i'm going to go over there and tell him that...

So, a small fact that I accidentaly happened upon today. John 3,23 - John the Baptist is working in a place called Aenon: http://biblehub.com/topical/a/aenon.htm. However, in some transcriptions it's not Aenon but Ainon.

I didn't read the whole thread to see if it had been mentioned before, but I just noticed that the proportions of the Incu-Holoinas given in TTT are exactly 10 times those of Noah's Ark. :D

The Ark of Damnation though...or salvation, depending on how you look at it.

Calvinists eh? So was predestination a big factor in the system then? What is the point of organized worship at that point aside from family values and community?
