The Threads That Wove The Pages Burned: The Cultural Fabric of Edmond Alfradi's Banned "In The Eyes Of Man."

A collaboration piece By Soledad Alfaro-Allah and Shaion Denny

“In the Eye’s of Man” directly incorporates text from the Holiest books this world has ever seen. Between the Bible and the Quran this book gives insight to a different point of view of what God could mean to different cultures. “In the Eye’s of Man” out plays the book “One Heartbeat Away” by Mark Cahill, because it acts solely as a contemplation and comparison of life, and does not by any means try and disprove science, and feed false information to the readers. “In the Eye’s of Man" we are just humans, no object justifies our lives, no human marks us as a value, in the eye’s of God we are here for our own happiness not to be pawns in our government.” “God and Apple Pie: Religious Myths and Visions of America” by Christopher Buck centers it’s around myths formed about the bible. It is reluctant to talk about the myths of how Christianity and Islam are different. Christianity and Islam bare no basic differences in what God should be to us as humans. “Magicians of the Gods” by Graham Hancock talks deeply about the mystical shift in the super continent that created the Aztec civilization. “Magicians of the God” is the second installment of the earlier book “ Fingerprints of the Gods” also by Graham Hancock. Both books explain how the world came to be under god's watch. “In the Eye’s of Man” can only admire. Along with the attempt at a historical contemplation of christianity Bill O'reily's "Killing Jesus" had also acted as another one of the books which drew from religion and tried to show how the structure of God was actually built around currency, and the crucifixion of Jesus was over the dismantling of the church. He threatened the money, which in turn was truly why he was killed. "The Book Of Mormon" The hit play written by the creators of South park also contains a satyrical look at religion in the comical sense while trying to prove a point. 9/11 is also a part of the ism that inspired the creation of this book, because of the discrimination and fear used in order to separate those of one god from others. However "In The Eye's of Man" Proves the similarity of these religions in the smallest and subtlest of ways. From the early 2000's to now religion has been used as a political tool in a new way with the word "Terrorist" Which now in American speak truly means Muslim. The nation going through a traumatic experience such as the attack on the twin towers had allowed for many releases of Literatrue and Art addressing God, and the bible, and the Quran and the Torah from several different points of views. The book "In The Eyes of Man" By Alfradi Stems directly from that.
