      Actually, I do believe there was a teacher named Jesus.  I'll post about it over in the religious discussion thread when I have time.

      I like terms like the, "What Is," and, "Great Mystery."   Whatever It is, it sure isn't changed a great deal by what I might think or say.  These questions are much better applied as memes for creating wars and such.    There's no mass killing like when we can get a deity on our sides.   When it comes to that point, you have to round up those wise enough to question the insanity and put them on trial to make an example.

      Maybe that is why, in the original Hebrew stuff, they never used a name for God.  They never called "it" anything.  To put a name on God was forbidden.  The name "God" comes from the Germanic side of the Proto-Indo-European Language, with the same root as Good or Goth.  Theos, Deus, Dia, Duw and Zeus, are from the Greek/Celtic side of the PIE.  Jehovah comes from a Christian attempt to pronounce the unpronounceable.  Semitic languages used the unpronounceable tetragrammaton YWHW, which some Christians attempted to write as Jehovah or Yahweh.  If you actually try to pronounce YWHW, I think it sounds more like the wind than anything else, but they knew that was not it's name, just something they used to represent it.     Christianity has definitely taken it further along a patriarchal path, but the Jewish were definitely there with the priesthood they developed after Moses.  In the biblical pre-Moses stuff, God is a creator, but "it" is not said to create with it's genitals, only with it's words and breath.

      Next thing you know, since the term "god" is gender specific, there will be some new word to use, and "god" and "goddess" will be removed from our vocabulary.

      Metaphysically, that's correct.  The "father, son".... bit is just patriarchal projection.
