Well. Let me see if I get this right. This appears to go back to or coalesce around the original, original sin. Now bear with me now. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica,
Original sin (the term can be misleading) is the morally vitiated condition in which one finds oneself at birth as a member of a sinful race. In Genesis 3, this is depicted as an inherited consequence of the first human sin, i.e., that of Adam. Theologians differ as to the interpretation of this narrative, but it is agreed that original sin, however mysterious its origin and nature may be, arises from human beings having come into the world not as isolated individuals but as members of a corporate race inheriting both good and evil features from its past history.
First off, this allusion to the fall of Adam seems to serve as some form of all encompassing absolution in that the first man — as written or told in Genesis, and depicted in virtually every historical record that alludes to the beginning of man — is actually racially white, inferentially by order and rank.
The literal interpretation of the Bible pegs Adam as the only and first human (of whom is suspiciously male) until his bone transplant in Eve arrived. From then on it appears that inbreeding occurring for generations upon generations led to successive genetic mutations of sub-denominated, but less evolved races.
However before the inbreeding there is this state of divine perfection illustrated as this…
…then came the imperfection…
Now why God chose to go the bone transplant route with Adam first, rather than the immaculate conception method that begot Jesus Christ instead by starting out with Eve puzzles and dumbfounds me. But I digress.
Also puzzling was the crime. An apple on this particular tree that presumbably was not harvested by Adam. Adam has no claim or deed to the land upon which the tree sprouted from and bore fruit. But this new chick Eve who has since become a perpetual pain to aspects of the white patriarchy has unlawfully taken the prohibited fruit. Adam and Eve, it appears from warnings by this serpent, realizes that this is not a socialist arrangement, but a capitalist one. They both were summarily faced with eviction from the garden. This may explain why all the sacrifices given to God by their children Cain and Abel.
So this inherited consequence of the original sin has been reapplied, reimagined, and revisited in the advent of slavery in God’s blessed America. Somehow and in some way the founding communities of whites knew that abducting people and then enslaving them is wrong but I guess since they are the result of a genetic mutation from the original, original sin it sort of absolves future sins in part by descendancy.
So once again according to Senator Mitch McConnell’s logic none of those white southerners, and northerners who funded and sponsored the slave trade, brokers, insurers, slave masters, etc., could likewise be held responsible over the apple incident in the garden of eden because they were not living at the time and furthermore it has already been dealt with by the crucifixion of Jesus.
And that sir is how crazy Senator Mitch McConnell sounds right now.
lol Marley K. you should read this one I bet you will get a kick out of this too.
