Free Will In The Epics

Free Will In The Epics

India and Indian culture are often seen as being averse to change. This land is often viewed as a place where things happen because of fate and not due to human effort. But is this really true? Do the Ramayana and the Mahabharata teach us that caste matters? What do the epics say about ties Read more about Free Will In The Epics[…]

Social Orders and Creation Stories: Crash Course World Mythology #5

Social Orders and Creation Stories: Crash Course World Mythology #5

哈囉!我是麥克‧如格內塔歡迎收看《神話速成班》 今天,與其著重在地球、和其他星球是怎麼被創造的 我們要著重在地球上的事物。 準確的說,是人。更準確的說,是男人跟女人的「人」。 也會包含一些動物。 不,不包括你,圖特。 你不一樣,你是人身動物首的神。 總之,我們要看看怎麼從神話角度看人類的起源和人與人之間的關係。 至少,看看神話是怎麼去解釋這些關係的。 這是神話版的兩性問題。 《速成班》主題曲 《神話速成班》 神話通常不包括今天所謂的「性別流體」概念 不過,有時候也會有。就是在說你,古預言家特伊西亞斯 如同我們在中國和祆教創世神話中可見,神話通常包含兩極或二元。 當中最重要的一種,就是男女的分別。 而這種二元對偶,通常都是男尊女卑的關係,…至少在人間是這樣 在天上則比較複雜一點。 我們先從多數觀眾們最熟悉的故事:《聖經》裡,神創造男人和女人的故事 仔細閱讀《創世紀》的話,你會發現裡面其實有兩三個創世的故事。 而根據聖經學者解釋,這反映了不同的書寫傳統。 我們會著重在《創世紀》第二章裡面的第二段創世故事 在故事裡面,神已經創造好天地並創造了人來管理大地 就像我們上次談到的:神很討厭除草 與第一次創世不同,人是在創造初始時就被造出來, 這表示他在神的造化當中扮演很重要的角色。 然而,一個人似乎做不完伊甸園的工作。 《創世紀》第二章第廿一節「神使他沉睡,他就睡了。 於是取下他的一條肋骨,又把肉合起來。 神就用那人身上所取的肋骨,造成一個女人,領她到那人跟前。 男人說: 『這是我骨中的骨,肉中的肉。可以稱他為女人, 因為她是從男人身上取出來的。 因此,人要離開父母,與妻子連合,二人成為一體。』 這裡我們見到早期用文字遊戲解釋男人優勝於女人的「證明」 在創世紀後半部份,就像神允許男人為女人取名一樣 因為人是萬物之靈,他也擁有替所有的動物取名字的權利 在原本的希伯來文中也是同樣的文字遊戲男人是 Ish,女人是 Isha。 看到了嗎? 她是從男人身上取出來的,所以連他的名字也是從男人延伸出來的 好笑吧? 看希臘的笑神傑拉斯笑的多開心阿? 好吧,有點冷… 這一段同時解釋了婚姻雖然只是一男一女的婚姻 也解釋了人婚後離開父母、另組家庭的社會現象 我不知道這是在解釋已存的家庭結構,還是要推動這樣的家庭結構 不過非常有可能是「馬後砲」式的解釋 畢竟神話的主要功能之一就是為人類日常生活中所遇到的種種提供一個合理的解釋 聖經接下來詳細解釋了男女之間的「自然」關係 卻不是很「好玩」或符合女權觀點 他們吃了智慧樹的果實後,神便生氣地懲罰了他們 祂對女人說:「我必多多加增你懷胎的苦楚 你生產兒女必多受苦楚,你必戀慕你丈夫 Read more about Social Orders and Creation Stories: Crash Course World Mythology #5[…]
