About L. M. Jankowski

Humor/Psychology/Religion.......

This book is a psychological and humorous critique of the first 25 chapters of the Book of Genesis. Because religion is autobiographical and Moses claimed he talked with god, I thought the only logical recourse for this critique, based on the writings of Moses, would be a humorous one against a backdrop of psychology.......

If Moses had actually talked to the creator of the universe, he would have been forever known as mankind's first scientist. However, this never happened.......

In this book, my words are in (parentheses); everything else is word-for-word from the King James Version of the bible.......

A sample verse, some thoughts, and a brief bio…….

Genesis, Chapter 2 Verse 19…….
19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air (the creating of the animals, take two—contradicting chapter one—the wonderful world of denial); and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them (so that’s how the kangaroo, koala bear, wallaby, wombat, and Tasmanian devil got their names—some cat from the Middle East named them. I suppose the naming of the animals went something like this: “Yo, my main man—give this thing a name.” Man clears throat and speaks first words, “Blue Whale.” “And this thing…?” “Tyrannosaurus rex.” “And this…?” “Neanderthal.”): and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof (assuming that this was done during daylight hours, how many animals did Adam have to name to get the job done? Scientists say there are anywhere between 3 million to 100 million different animal species on this planet. Each year we discover approximately 20,000 to 25,000 species. Over the course of Earth’s history, 4.54 billion years, scientists have estimated that anywhere between 1 billion and 4 billion species have existed on this planet. They say that roughly 50 million still survive today. Other estimates say that there are 8.7 million species that exist. To do the math, I’ll be using a low estimate of 15 million animal species. There are 86,400 seconds in a day. If Adam had 12 hours to name 15 million animals on that one day as his creator pulled them one-by-one from the dust of the earth and brought them to him, Adam would have had to give names to 347 animals per second. At 347 animals per second, the only thing Adam would have been able to see, would have been one continuous bellowing, screeching, squealing, screaming blur. That’s assuming that the first blast of animals didn’t first knock him down and blow him off the face of the earth. Note of interest: In the time it takes to cook a 3 minute egg, Adam would have given names to 62,500 animals)….…

Man has always projected what he knows and what he thinks he knows onto everything he doesn’t know and has been telling stories about it long before he invented ways to write things down. His stories and his gods preceded Moses and the whole cast and crew of the Christian bible by thousands of years and by thousands of generations. Moses used the hand-me-down stories from his part of the world, modified them to suit his needs, and then attributed the final product to his god. Even the Native Americans and their gods preceded Moses and his god by over four thousand years. When man doesn’t know the answers, he simply makes them up…….

I was born and raised in New Jersey. As a child I caught my share of frogs, box turtles, climbed a lot of trees, and played a lot of baseball. I also made snowmen, threw snowballs, shoveled sidewalks and driveways, cut grass, played soccer, hockey, some basketball, and picked up the game of golf two summers before I graduated from high school. I received my first doctorate degree from Harvard University. However, I had to return it six months later after my eye doctor discovered it missing.......

The Psychology of Creation is my first book.
