My name is Tunji Adeeko. I am the author of the book titled THEY LIED TO US – Unveiling How Christianity And Islam Religions Were Forged. This book can be bought or read on Amazon.com
Also, in my bid to proffer reasonable meaning to the construction of the Vatican Audience Hall with reptilian features, built at Rome in 1971, I wrote a free ebook titled THE VATICAN SNAKEHEAD AUDITORIUM – The Old Warlord Is Back To Power. The enlarged version of this book is underway.
My two books THEY LIED TO US as well as THE VATICAN’S SNAKEHEAD AUDITORIUM can be read FREE on BAMBOOKS.IO
Despite the efforts I poured into the making of my first book, I must admit that the production of the second book has been a phenomenon. I uncovered more secrets as I worked to unravel the meaning of the Vatican Audience Hall. However, the ease of success would not have been made possible and concise had I not spent decades to burn the night candle to understand and know the secrets underlining how the earth came into existence and how mankind eventually came to be. This knowledge forms the bulk of the book THEY LIED TO US.
The Bible messages, as of today, controls the souls of about a third of the world population while the Qur’an controls about one fifth. Together, the two books control about half of the world population. The big question is, were the two books prepared to tell the world populace the truth about the creation of the worlds, the origin of the earth and humans and the lot of human soul in the afterlife (if indeed there is anything like that)?
If I may give an outright, candid answer, it will be a NO! The entire world was deceived in the making of religions, most especially in the making of monotheism which claims that there is only one GOD in heaven. The holy books of Christians and Muslims say except individuals comply with the content of the two books and believe in the saviour or the chief prophet; such shall not have access into and enjoy the blissful world beyond the grave. It is no gainsaying though that the criteria put in place by the propagandist in Judaism, Christianity and Islam are no way the same or even parallel, in most cases, they all follow a divergent path. How then are these diverse ideologies expected to converge and form a common front in the afterlife if they cannot agree here and now?
While working on my second book, I took cognizance of a peculiar event in the Bible and it is recorded in the Book of Genesis.
” Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:1-5)
In this passage, the event was supposed to have taken place when Adam and Eve were the only human beings on Earth. From the statement above, however, the writer implies that Eve knew that there was God and that there were gods who occupy enviable places in the hierarchy of spiritual matters. (Or were the gods physical beings?) And that the serpent, from the statement made, lured Eve to desire to acquire the power to know good and evil and be, not like God, but at least like the gods.
Another way to inquire about the event is to assume that ab initio there were gods and Yahweh Elohim (LORD God) was just one of the gods and was supposed to be the supreme among the gods.
Without the existence of one of the cases mentioned, the phrase “…..and ye shall be as gods” is meaningless and unwarranted. Eve was not lured to be like one of the angels but like the gods.
The only solution that comes to an unbiased mind is to conclude that WHEN THE STORY OF ADAM AND EVE IN THE GARDEN WAS FABRICATED, THE TALE ABOUT THE GODS AND GODDESSES WAS ALREADY PREVALENT AMONG HUMAN POPULACE. Hence, the author was writing about the past world but interpolated it with the then present situation forgetting the problem associated with such a mix-up – an anachronism.
“We see it first in Egypt as a characteristic of the Semitic Hyksos kings; Apopi III took Sutekh for his lord and served no other god in all the land but he says the chronicler of the quarrel of the two kings.” (Cambridge Ancient History, 2nd Edition, Vol. 1, p. 323) Later on, history says further that, a young Pharaoh came to power who felt that polytheism was an aberration. He made efforts to instil and install the worship of the true and only god – Aton, the Sun. Throughout the empire, the sun-disk became its emblem. The pharaoh changed his name to Akhenaton, formerly Amenhotep lV, and severely persecuted the priests of Amon. Besides that, it was reported that he obliterated the plural names of God from all documents and usage. After his demise, “Egypt, who considered monotheism was abhorrent as Apopi’s worship of Sutekh had been, went back to polytheism.” (Ibid. p.324). (see THEY LIED TO US – Unveiling How Christianity and Islam Religions Were Forged, p. 61
Outside the above-stated scenario, there was no record of strict monotheism in the world before the emergence of the Jews. The closest experiences were those found among many indigenous or traditional beliefs which state that though GOD is one, there were multiple intercessors (deities) mediating between God and man. A careful review of the origin of the Jewish scripture points to the 6th century, during the Babylonia captivity and in the many centuries that followed. And it is difficult to determine how much of the materials in the Hebrew scripture presently were available before the Captivity. Scholars have found many anachronistic statements and references in the Jewish scripture which had led many to agree that the content of the book was forged at a much later time than declare; hence, it has been called “a pious fraud”. See THEY LIED TO US for more.
Bearing in mind that no scripture from the Arabs was known until after the demise of the Prophet in the 7th century, it is very difficult to independently verify the content of what was later known as the Qur’an. However, in part 2 of this article, I will single out a key event that links the two books, that had the two books originated independently of each other, different level of clarification should have been displayed. I am talking about the coming of a Messiah to the world in the first century.
