Man’s Inherent Identity and His Worth: What Are They Really Like?

You were separated out from mud and, no matter what, you were of that stuff which was picked out from among the dregs, filthy and hated by God. You belonged to Satan and were once trampled upon and tainted by it. That is why it is said that you were separated out from mud, and, far from being holy, you are instead nonhuman things that have long been the object of Satan’s trickery. This is the most appropriate assessment of you. You need to know that you were originally impurities found in stagnant water and mud, as opposed to desirable catches like fish and shrimp, for nothing that provides enjoyment can be derived from you. To put it bluntly, you are the most debased beasts of a low society, worse than pigs and dogs. Frankly speaking, to address you in such terms is neither overstatement nor hyperbole; rather, it simplifies the issue. To address you in such terms could even be said to be a way of paying you respect. Your insight, speech, behavior as men, and every aspect of your life, including your status in the mud, are sufficient to prove that your identity is “out of the ordinary.”
