"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

En ingles y en español.
These are apparently the ten worst verses in the bible:

  • "I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man. She must be quiet." (1 Timothy 2:12)
  • "Go, now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has under the ban. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and asses." (1 Samuel 15:3)
  • "You shall not let a sorceress live." (Exodus 22:18)
  • "Happy those who seize your children and smash them against a rock." (Psalm 137:9)
  • "When the men would not listen to his host, the husband seized his concubine and thrust her outside to them. They had relations with her and abused her all night until the following dawn, when they let her go. Then at daybreak the woman came and collapsed at the entrance of the house in which her husband was a guest, where she lay until the morning. When her husband rose that day and opened the door of the house to start out again on his journey, there lay the woman, his concubine, at the entrance of the house with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, 'Come, let us go'; but there was no answer. So the man placed her on an ass and started out again for home." (Judges 19:25-28)
  • "And the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity." (Romans 1:27)
  • "Jephthah made a vow to the Lord. 'If you deliver the Ammonites into my power,' he said, 'whoever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites shall belong to the Lord. I shall offer him up as a holocaust.' ... When Jephthah returned to his house in Mizpah, it was his daughter who came forth, playing the tambourines and dancing. She was an only child: he had neither son nor daughter besides her. When he saw her, he rent his garments and said, 'Alas, daughter, you have struck me down and brought calamity upon me. For I have made a vow to the Lord and I cannot retract'." (Judges 11:30-1, 34-5)
  • "Then God said: 'Take your son Isaac, your only one, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah. There you shall offer him up as a holocaust on a height that I will point out to you'."(Genesis 22:2)
  • "Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord." (Ephesians 5:22)
  • "Slaves, be subject to your masters with all reverence, not only to those who are good and equitable but also to those who are perverse." (1 Peter 2:18)

  • Y aquí la version en español. Ustedes chequeen sus propias biblias:

  • Mujeres no pueden enseñar en la iglesia (1 Tim. 2:12).
  • Samuel manda a destruir completamente a los amalecitas (1 Sam. 15:3).
  • El mandamiento de Moisés que no se le deje vivir a una hechicera (Ex. 22:18).
  • El final de Salmo 137 en donde de habla de estrellar los niños del enemigo contra las rocas.
  • El violación y asesinato de una concubina (Jueces 19:25-28).
  • La condenación de homosexualidad (Romanos 1:27).
  • La promesa de Jefté que le llevó a matar a su hija (Jueces 11).
  • El comando de sacrificar a Isaac (Génesis 22:2).
  • La instrucción a esposas a someterse a sus esposos (Efesios 5:22).
  • La instrucción a esclavos a someterse a sus amos (1 Pedro 2:18).

    Y nos hacen reflexionar sobre como muchos creen en lo que no conocen realmente.

    Hey G-Man,
    I know some married guys who might agree with that first verse.

    I think the bible should be like updated. But if that was the case, as Woody Allen says, God has a lot to explain.

    Gigi Peligro said...

    alguno más seguro que hay!
    pero como sigamos con las leyes categorícas del resto de religiones igual nos quedamos sin humanidad... el caso es discriminar y matar a quien piense lo contrario...

    Guely of Sweden said...

    O postergar el lavado de cerebro religioso para cuando la persona tenga edad suficiente de razonar y decir acepto o no.

    Hay que pensar que mucha gente, independientemente de su fe, vive realmente en la época en la que estamos. Me explico: que no repasa la Biblia cada vez que intenta ser buen cristiano, que sabe que la bondad, la honradez, el respeto, son valores que no están escritos que algo hemos evolucionado y nada hay que tomarlo al pie de la letra (o no se debería, al menos). Quiero creer que no hace falta estar repasando un texto tan antiguo como la Biblia para ser buena persona. Quien dice Biblia, dice Corán, dice otros tantos libros sagrados. Quiero creer (y fijaos que digo creer de nuevo) que aprendemos de la historia, los errores, y hasta de lo que no está escrito. Y quiero creer que hay mucha gente caminando por el mundo, creyendo por encima de todo en valores tan importantes como la libertad. Esa que alguien dijo una vez: "mi libertad termina donde empieza la de los demás".
    Yo quiero creer en el ser humano, se escriba lo que se escriba sobre él (o ella).

    Guely of Sweden said...

    Definitivamente un buen pensamiento, Virginia, y estas alturas de nuestra historia mucha gente no se los toma a la letra. Lo malo es que la historia está repleta de ejemplos en los que si se hizo. Que no hace mucho el infame Bush le dió a su guerra un caracter casi religioso.
