The Lordlings of Worship and Their Catastrophic Mindrides
Part philosophy, part religious history, part political thriller and part Bible study, Cameron Leigh gets so involved in complexities that it becomes hard to define what he’s doing. Imagine live electrical power cords tangled up together, each of varying voltages; that is the end result. The thriller cord follows a college graduate who enlists at the start of the Second World War, but has a mission to become a minister of religion. Entangled in this is an analysis of the history of the Bible, which is entangled in an essay on the origins and effects of different religions. Mixed up with this is a thesis that the letters of the alphabet and the use of numerals are mostly based on Judaic symbols and have nothing to do with the popular belief that they stem from the Romans and Arabs. Running through these, with the strongest current, is an assertion that the Jewish Bible is the most authentic religious and philosophical document in history. Also strongly evident is that Israel is a beacon of goodness when all around are evil. Weakly entangled in this is a declaration that the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution are the most advanced and fair political doctrines in all history.
The thriller continues with the son of the college graduate, and his son after him, taking up the same cause. They get pushed aside by extremely detailed analyses of the origins and authenticity of individual books of the Bible. The thriller part becomes clearer when the ministers realize that the Jewish Bible contains the Creation Code written by God and stolen by an ancient secret organization, which is designed to save mankind from falling into the abyss of destruction. And that abyss is very close. Conspiracy theory pulses in and out, with politicians of today hastening the plunge into the abyss by trying to stop attempts to find the code. One antidote to this is to return to the principles of the Founding Fathers in the US. Sections of the book are fascinating, none more so than the first 50 pages where the college graduate locks philosophical and debating skills with his professor. And for those interested in the origins of the alphabet, there is plenty of material on the individual letters. But these subjects should be in separate dissertations of their own. The knotted cords are bewildering.
