OTHERNESS: The Original Sin
We humans have FAR MORE in common than we do that differentiates us. The entire idea of "them vs. us" is utterly demonic.
The theological "fall of man" described in Genesis (when Eve took a bite of that fruit at the urging of the serpent, then handed it to Adam to ALSO take a bite - standing right next to her) wasn't so much about human weakness, female intellectual frailty, the mindless manipulability of men or even the implicit lack-mindset born into the human species. It was 100% about "otherness".
"Othering" is defined as: (noun) "The process of perceiving or portraying someone or something as fundamentally different or alien."
THAT was the "original sin". OTHERNESS.
Sadly, it so remains, and has proven itself to be the root of ALL hatred, isolation and destruction that human inflicts upon human... from the beginning of time.
Further, this understanding substantiates and clarifies the ONE thing Jesus came to deliver us from: The ludicrous idea that we can be created by ONE benevolent Creator by, in and for LOVE... yet be somehow separated at birth... and EVERY social or religious construct that perpetuates that same evil.
If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck...
"Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do."
"It is finished."
