OMG ... honestly i don't even know how to emote about this one ... thanks's Mike for finding it. I guess we all have known that people mutate our language to permeate our culture with their world view. We've have a word for that, it's "propaganda". I suppose that is a good thing that as the world changes, our world views change, and then our language cnanges to represents it. So why not do it backwards? ... change the language, to change the world view, to change the world? I suppose if i actually believed that the bible was the literal word of God, then i wold be outraged. But .. er, is that not what a religious conservative believes ... so how could *they* do this? Like i said ... i have no idea how to feel about this intentional initiative ... to be honest with you, i almost wish Mike had not found the page.

reverse propaganda -

me, i'm more interested in what you think about conservatives rewriting the bible to eliminate liberalism from it?  i mean should we not change our literature and language to better reflect our new values?  or is there something about documents like the bible,  or the constitution, or the dictionary, or perhaps the declaration of independence, whose language and message must remain immutable ... ?? 

i say if liberals did it, then it would make sense ... because that is what they do ... they change and progress .... but, conservatives ... well they, ... er conserve .... they hold to and defend established structures .... so for them, i say, it contradicts their basic philosophy and function. 

and while we are at it, why not rewrite the steiner books too?  i mean is that not what we are doing as we write new thoughts down for people to read?

i mean why not think about it in the language and terms in which i present it ... not quibbling about the terms themselves ... but instead thinking about the questions i am really asking?
It might be interesting & then might just get more propaganda. The farther away from the source you get the more you are likely to just make shit up. See RS here if you can get rid of your penchance for remaking the English language. Maybe read it in one of the original tongues for some value of it.  I would probably not read anything rewritten for political purposes or brainwashing people any more.  Luckily, there are senses within the human that, if cultivated & used don't need to read a book to find out the truth, i.e. what's so. The Roman Catholic church, in the Council of Nicea in ~ 300 AD got rid of body, soul & spirit & thus the idea of reincarnation. No spirt - no reincarnation. Modern materialism is getting rid of the soul too & just going for the mind or psychology - all material based.  Good or bad?  Who knows? Materialism was needed to develop logic & rational processes of consciousness. The pendulum is swinging in the other direction now.  Maybe join? Maybe not! Some of the more modern translations of RS sound different than when I first read them. Maybe that is just my focus nowadays. Maybe those who followed the first translators have some degree of imagination, inspiration & intuition - initiation - beyond today's politics.
Pope Francis seems to be rewriting Roman Catholic behavior or something toward a more liberal stance - maybe you could join him.
From some place I learned that most of our language evolved during the 1400 - 1600 - etymology seems to stop mostly there in going backwards.  The theory was that in particular King James translated the original sources of the New Testament into English for the peasants who had little written language.  Suit yourself . I have no need to run into any more propaganda to throw away.
