Infant circumcision is a soul-sickness, as is all of Monotheism. The habit while reading scripture is to put up a cognitive privacy glass so one only sees sparkles and not the real person behind the glass. This is a soul-sickness (Ted calls is over-socialization, Jesus says not to take as doctrine the commandments of men). I have never met a monotheist that did not dissociate in this way when reading scripture. If that was not the cognitive failure, they would normally be naturalists. If this were not so, as soon as they read “if you believe this you can even drink poison and it will not hurt you,” they would throw said scripture in the trash. Ot better, they would see the traumatized child’s attempt to convey this very message, and expel the traumatizers (‘technologists’ & ‘takers-of-thought’) from the tribe.
