Genesis As Myth By Edmund Leach In the book Genesis As Myth by Edmund Leach He stated that everybody had different views on myths in Genesis For example German theologian who defined myth as the expression of unobservable realities in terms of observable phenomena This German theologian who is relating this to the devout Christian which indicates that all sanctimonious Christians believe that the bible is strictly a myth I in the other hand disagree to that argument because the Christians believed that the bible was not a myth and the events that happened in the bible are true My reasoning for that remark is that most Christians were raised to believe that the bible was true and we werent able to argue with its readings We feel that the importance of the myth is more likely to be less probable This German theologian believed that communica tion has an important role in myths throughout the bible I believe that all mythological systems that recur in stories oc cur in many different versions He stated that man is created in Genesis and then he created all over again And as if two first men were not enough we also have Noah in chapter eight A quote from the bible that states I am the Alpha and the Omega the beginning and the end saith the Lord The German Theologian says that God against the world and the world itself for ever dividing into opposites on either side male and female living and dead good and evil first and last In a different example Edmund Leach stated that Solomon the wise the great king the builder of the temple nevertheless is a sinner in that he loved many strange woman together with the daughter of Pharaoh woman of the moabites Ammonites Edomites Zidonians and hittites Taken as its face value the text of the old testament represents the relation between the various tribal groups
