Description

Husband and Wife are two non-believers who have always wanted to read the Bible. Why would we subject ourselves to this you might ask? From our perspective it helps us understand where the Christians around us, here in the Midwest, are coming from when they quote the Bible at us. Husband is basically an Atheist and wife leans Agnostic but mostly Atheist and we’re just having some fun at the Bible’s expense while learning more about what our neighbors claim we’re going to hell over.

Welcome back, irreverent infidels and skeptical scripture scrutinizers! It's your blasphemous podcasting duo here to dissect yet another episode of what has become our guiltiest of pleasures, the Sacrilegious Book Club. Buckle up, because in Episode 28, we dove headfirst into the swirling whirlpool of lore surrounding Israel's most infamous cardio workout – the trek of the Lost Tribes. You know, those ancient wanderers who supposedly lost their way so badly that not even Google Maps could save them.First off, let's give credit where it's due. The episode title, "Jewish Folklore episode 28: Sacrilegious Book Club," certainly packs a punch. If you weren't intrigued by lost tribes before, the promise of a mystery intertwined with some juicy prophecy might just be the carrot on a stick to lead you down the rabbit hole. Or should we say, the desert path of no return? But don't worry, it's just a metaphorical desert – we wouldn't want to leave the comfort of our armchairs.The podcast kicks off with a crash course on the Lost Tribes, delivered with the earnestness of a conspiracy theorist uncovering a cover-up about alien abductions. You've got your initial settlement in Canaan, the Assyrian party crashers, and the subsequent scattering that would make a game of 52-card pickup look like child's play. The hosts even toss in a claim by a group in India who say, "Surprise, we're it!" as if they've just won a round of cosmic hide and seek.But wait, there's more. Prophecies and messianic expectations are thrown into the mix like ingredients in a doomsday stew. Judah and Benjamin somehow get the survivor's edit while the rest of the tribes apparently didn't make the final cut. The hosts discuss this with the same tone you'd reserve for debating whether Han shot first. It's biblical fan fiction at its finest, and you're left wondering if there's a director's cut that clears things up.In a bold narrative twist, the episode shifts gears to recount tales from the likes of Eldad ben Mahli Ha-Dani to Prester John, who sound like characters straight out of a high fantasy novel. There's talk of mysterious rivers, rocks that take a day off on the Sabbath, and connections to other historical groups that may or may not have been on the guest list for the original Exodus.To wrap things up, the podcast promises more riveting discussions in future episodes. Because when you've got a good thing going with ancient narratives, why stop? It's like a TV series that's been renewed for another season purely because the fans can't get enough of the unresolved tension.So, dear listeners and readers, if you're into a blend of history, myth, and a healthy dose of irreverence, this is the podcast for you. Tune in, drop out, and maybe, just maybe, you'll find the Lost Tribes in the footnotes of a history book. Or perhaps at the back of your closet, next to that old pair of sneakers you thought you'd lost. Spoiler alert: they were just really good at hiding.P.S. If you've actually found the Lost Tribes, kindly redirect them to their nearest consulate. We're pretty sure there's some paperwork they've been neglecting for the last couple of millennia.Join us on DISCORD: https://discord.gg/8RwwMrb5zKOur Homepage: https://sacrilegiousdiscourse.com/Help support us by subscribing on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/sacrilegiousdiscourse Join Acast+ to enjoy our podcast adfree! https://plus.acast.com/s/sacrilegiousiscourse.

I met y'all at the Kentucky freethought convention yesterday and I just listened to the first part of Genesis, I love you guys! thanks for helping all of us get through "the good book" in a fun way, since I think it's seriously the most boring gobbledygook on the planet... and y'all make it sooooooo much better.
