Biblical Series I: Introduction to the Idea of God


  1. Wtf he's describing things I've thought of before. I think intuition is basically the nonverbal part of our brain giving us hints translated as emotions or gut feelings. That's basically the inarticulated part of the brain he was talking about

  2. Just going to point out that the structure of the earth described in the Bible is not how Peterson described it starting at 1:27:00

  3. @1:03:30 "I'm not telling you what I know, I'm trying to figure things out, and this is part of the process in which I'm trying to do that"

  4. I'm interested to know if Jordan Peterson has ever met anytime during his career the the legendary Christopher Hitchens? that is one podcast I would have loved to have seen if the Hitch was still alive 🙂

  5. Me 6 years ago: I'm an atheist, I'm intellectually superior compared to these religious sheeps.

    Me now: Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. He is The Way, The Truth and The Life, no one comes to The Father but through Him.

  6. me before Jordan Peterson: I'm an atheist
    me after Jordan Peterson: Hey look a 30 hours playlist on the bible, yay!

  7. he says we don't believe them now, but I believe them, and I know a lot of people who believe them. faith is an enduring characteristic of man and we have to have something to have faith in. even if you don't think that it's true, it's good to have a common core set of cultural myths. it allows us to communicate in a sort of short hand and confer complex moral and life teachings in short, easy to understand pieces.

  8. Can u put a portuguese subtitles, we are 200.000.000, if you have a 0,5% of us it a lot of people..

  9. I Am Not Religious But The Thought That Religion Can Be Some Aspect Of Deep Subconscious Evolution…Is VERY Fascinating
    I'm getting a cave vibe anyone get what I mean?

  10. Muslims across the world are being persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church and the Jews. This plan has been going on for centuries behind our backs. Watch "Who will build the third temple in Jerusalem?" By KJVM – Bryan Denlinger Warn everyone!

  11. The fecundity of texts historically has been limited by technology (no printing press or internet), causing all textual memetic evolution to be concentrated in one book. This to me is proof that it's something significant. It's the only high-fidelity piece of culture from a period spanning thousands of years!

  12. I assume Mr Peterson hasn’t had any profound experience from God where there is no question left of God being real. Faith I didn’t have to struggle with . 🙏🏼. Maybe he has had such ill listen I might learn something always open minded for learning .

  13. "millions and millions of years ago"
    we don't know a lot of things, but THIS information is right FOR SURE…
    millions and millions… please, wake up and stop with this particular nonsense
    Otherwise, a nice presentation

  14. Regarding the last question…the 'perfect fidelity replica' just add more unique value to the original, because it's now something that was worth counterfeiting, with the world's most advanced technology. But it's not the same, and we combat counterfeiting to the best of our ability, including carbon dating and paint analysis, etc, making certifying the original a forensic affair of making sure every detail matches with the painter and the materials that he used. In fact, this forces many art counterfeiters to purchase lesser value painting from the same region, era, etc in an attempt to acquire material that can be tested to match. This level of scrutiny just makes you realize the original painting is truly unique.

    I think what he really wanted to know is whether a successful counterfeit makes revelations gleamed from them less real?

  15. I love Jordan but, he is a ideology which though hypocritical I am willing to accept because I know this man is right while wrong just as everyone else, there is always a answer to everything… even more answers than we can comprehend

  16. Jordan -Forget all the stuff of Gnostic -I will tell you the truth – and I am a simple Man – the Holy Spirit is the capacity to connect in a Cellular state by DNA with the Eternity -faster than Light -superluminal – this "They" wish to interrupt by Microwave -o this super luminal conection is based in the DNA and also Magnetic Stream from the Heart which is the Controller for the Hole Body and our regeneration in cellular state -and this is not any esoteric stuff -it is proofed by Science ! sorry english is not my main Language ! theoretical it is possible to connect themself with the future or the past and also with outer time !this is one of the biggest secrets( the Holy Grail is in you ) ! and I am not Christian ! but I believe by my own way ! I am ready for Questions ! when you have any questions [email protected]

  17. John 14 King James Version (KJV)

    14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

    2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

    3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

    5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

    6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

    8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

    9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

    10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

    11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

    12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

    13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

    14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

    15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

    16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

    17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

    18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

    19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

    20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

    21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

    22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

    23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

    24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

    25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

    26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

    27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

    28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

    29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

    30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

    31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
    King James Version (KJV)

  18. I have had dreams and freeze frame visions of things such as family deaths, and twin towers being blown apart. I asked God to remove this from me. So many times these have happened….I don't like it.

  19. 8:21 So, if you aimlessly browse the web, then you could become disassociated with your reality? The internet is a place that, when used without a specific goal, breeds insanity?

  20. One absolute truth that I think all of us could agree on is that, we still don't know about things that are beyond us. I'm a Christian and im still don't know the absolute truth of things. I just go on my day with faith in God and that's it. Idk what the next day holds, idk if the God that I was taught in sunday school is actually the truth. I'm just waiting until the day we find the truth and let God reveal Himself in the very end…

  21. Really Wonder if you've ever read macchiavelli or 48 laws of power,,, speaking of Power, it isn't Moral in essence… :—-DD

  22. Do you know if there is (and could you giving me contact-details) any non-politically correct publisher in Canada?, as I am currently writing a book, which includes my experiences of having grown up in Southern Alberta.

  23. GOD givith and takes away, Eternity is not in the here after, the beginning has an end.  Our flesh wants what it cannot have as the spirit knows, only the spirit belongs to GOD and is ETERNAL.  The flesh is a temporary state to know GOD so don't waste it.

  24. Great talk. Good way to do Sunday. No desire to go to church but want to embark on a spiritual journey. These lectures are perfect.


  26. "Researchers have recently discovered that new genes in the central nervous system turn themselves on when an organism places itself in a new situation. These genes code for new proteins. These proteins are the building blocks for new structures in the brain. This means that a lot of you is still nascent in the most physical of senses, and will not be called forth by stasis. You have to say something… go somewhere… and DO things to get turned on. And if not, you remain incomplete." Dr. Peterson takes a fabulous scientific finding and shows how it is essentially a spiritual phenomenon. I find myself laughing out loud in real joy.

  27. Why is it strange to listen to this lecture?

    What are they going to do, watch TV? You know there's absolutely nothing good on.

  28. The one thing i will always disagree with him he just said. That socially isolated one is mad, or dead? Never for there's nothing that i revel in more than isolation, and solitude.
    I feel that without isolation i couldn't exist.

  29. We are a part of the universe, a bit, ourselves, a universe within the universe as we perceive it, so that is what the really the difficult thing is, when attempting to divining our true nature and being.

  30. Jordan Peterson is LITERALLY JESUS CHRIST. And like Jesus he will led us to vanquish the postmodern neomarxist scourge that plagues our times! Godspeed Dr Peterson! Your foot soldiers are ready to do battle!

  31. As much as I love this lecture, nothing Petersen said proves the existence of God, the truth of the Gospel, or that there’s any divine agency out there. You can’t use the Bible to prove the existence of God anymore than you can use the Koran to prove the existence of Allah. Outside evidence is needed.

  32. A couple days ago I started wondering if when we lie or act in a deceitful way it makes it harder for us to see truth in the world around us. Like as Jordan Peterson says it distorts reality. I wonder if (and think it does) literally alter our perception so effectively that we can’t actually see where lies end and truth begins. And those of us that suffer from underlying anxiety, depression or paranoia are feeling that way because our behaviors have distorted reality. And if we corrected whatever ills we’ve committed may align themselves in a way that facilitates a correction of our understanding in general.

  33. he is a non-theologian and not intimate with the study of divinity or the history of religion…..he has a fixed mundane/profane methodology attempting to offer a rational or semi-rational psychological explanation of the motivations, goals, and stories in the bible….that's one way to look at the bible – as our set of instructions that explain how we became conscious, overcame obstacles, descended from the trees and exited the jungles, and eventually became human.

  34. he never talks about God as if God is a real being…God/Yahweh/Marduk/El are all aspects of the same search for 'meaning' rather than self-existing supreme entities….the God(s) are mythic explanations of how to survive in the realm of the consciously self-aware intelligent animals. He never addresses the 'mystery' of faith or the 'reality' of the supernatural/divine/transcendant except as it is a method of man trying to learn about his nature and eventually master the vagaries of survival and success in the real material world of things and actions and events.

  35. A single author can indeed edit the beginning of a book after writing the ending, but the Bible was written by 40 different authors over a period of 1,500 years. Was Dr. Peterson referring to God as the author who is the beginning and the end?


  37. I am not a smart person. I find it hard to follow his train of thought. Most of the time I don't understand what he's talking about. 🙁

  38. Couldn’t answer why the Bible is patriarchal, God is male, Jesus is male, no place for female, let’s add genderless spirit – holy trinity. It doesn’t go well with his view of nonexisting patriarchy. But nevermind, this lecture is astounding, and very nice of him to let everyone see it for free.

  39. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom📖.. the youth of today are far from both, and this is something that we are obligated to remedy🌍🌌.. glory to God🕯📿🕆

  40. Jordan Peterson please do the I-Ching next. Here is the foreword to the Wilhelm Translation written by Carl Jung:

  41. “One of the things I’ve learned is that the best way to learn about something is to talk about it”. This comment somewhat echoes the quote from Dostoevsky: “talking nonsense is the sole privilege man has over the other mammals; it is by talking nonsense that one gets to the truth! I talk nonsense, therefore I’m human”.

    This man is so well read, it baffles someone who can barely bring about the willpower to pick up a book, like me.

  42. When I first read Dostoevsky and his Crime and Punishment was in our school program, I couldn't find anything wrong with Raskolnikov's thoughts that it is alright to kill a horrible person. It took me several tens of years to figure out that even the thought of being entitled to killing anyone should not appear in once head. Too bad I discovered these lectures so late, could've saved me some thinking)

  43. Who else dreams every night and remembers them??? I learn a guitar solo when I was first learning about 15 years ago and it’s still vivid to me.

  44. I seen a study on dreams where they had people play a physically active video game while they checked what areas of the brain were active during these games. Then while they were sleeping they started having the same activity in their brain as when they were playing. Then the next day they were better at the game. Cool study.

  45. Wouldn't birds be acting as if the future exists by building nests? He said we were the only creatures who act as if the future exists. Maybe I misunderstood idk. Either way Jordan Peterson is brilliant

    Do the unbelievers think that they can take my servants as protectors besides Me? Verily We have prepared Hell for the unbelivers for their entertainment. Say : " Shall We tell you of those who lost most in respect of their deeds? " "Those whose efforts have been wasted in this life, while they thought that they were acquiring good by their works? " They are those who deny the Signs of their Lord and the fact of their having to meet Him (in the Hereafter ); vain will be their works, nor shall We, on the Day of Judgement, give them any weight. That is their reward, Hell; because they rejected Faith, and took My Signs and My messengers by way of jest.

  47. JP is on the right track in 2:11:07 when he says there is a lot more to these biblical stories than what one person can understand. A mystic in India sheds some light on the topic in a Youtube video called "Pineal Gland Third Eye Sadhguru." He explains religious stories have been told in such a way so that the information they contain remains without any distortion, he them goes on to explain the metaphorical meaning and significance of the third eye. The eye is something that signifies consciousness, as Jordan Peterson explains in another video. In another video, Sadhguru breaks down the possibilities and problems of the having one's third eye opened. So, for Jordan Peterson to realize these stories are packed with
    a lot of information is interesting because he noticed it by himself. It gets more interesting because as you start to break down these stories you realize some things you never noticed.

  48. Can you design and manufacture an aircraft to carry 400 people and to travel half way around the planet only on belief? Engineering for instance is a science that must rely on the application of the TRUTH and understanding. God, if you like…is in the mind of these designers and within us all. No church needed …that's just a power and money making venture of a dominant hungry regime dwelling on the gullible who didn't read at all let alone know Latin language or writings… so long ago'
    it's built in and understood as much as a tree knows how to grow. God isn't …out there….it's a given force within. It's actually YOU if you can see yourself as a truth seeking being and to be understanding of your intolerance and redirect your thought tracks to seek the truth only…the universe will make beautiful sense the way it was meant to be.

  49. About leadership : "… the capacity to use your language properly, in a transformative manner, and to transforme chaos into order". Transforme chaos into order by speaking. Saying order.
    When you find the origin of a word by its true definition and meaning, you know you have valuable content
