To progress a little further people need to understand that the mincing of words can alter it’s meaning beyond recognition and even the truth, which can and does have a devastating affect/result on the outcome of a situation, and have some people follow or have them believe in a certain way which can and even will confuse them, and will also confuse the foretold story or give the wrong message to the readers of the story or happening if you prefer.
Just one example (Biblical) here within “When God told Moses to slay certain people, this seemed to me to take people into the wrong direction because slay was not looked upon as KILL, when in all truth and reality Slay = men were slain KILL, murder, put to death, butcher, cut down, cut to pieces, slaughter, massacre, shoot down, gun down, mow down, eliminate, annihilate, exterminate, liquidate; informal wipe out, bump off, do in, (informal) you slay me, you really do AMUSE GREATLY, entertain greatly, make someone laugh, informal have people rolling in the aisles, kill, knock dead, be hit with.
KILL = MURDER, take/end the life of, make away with, assassinate, eliminate, terminate, dispatch, finish off, put to death, execute; slaughter, butcher, massacre, wipe out, annihilate, exterminate, liquidate, mow down, shoot down, cut to pieces; informal bump off, polish off, do away with, do in, knock off, top, take out, croak, ECT. ECT.
So here we have the miss use of a single word that can and does change a story or event if you like beyond belief, which could have had (or maybe has had) devastating results upon someone’s religious beliefs, well this did take place with me when I questioned the event regarding Moses committing genocide in my previous writing, Was this the desire of God or was it Moses saying God told him to do so and passed the blame onto the all loving God thus exonerating himself.
I know the answer to this and have voiced my opinion the one the Nucleus sent me to study, this I did and soon discovered that The God or Nucleus in religious writings of the past gets the blame for many things when people cherry pick. Little wonder the winds of change are fulminating very much so through religion this day.
