Since when and why is the circumcision of boys? In which cultures did it originate? Where is it still practiced today?

Since when has male newborn circumcision been around?

  • “Circumcision seems to have been practiced since the earliest dynasties of Ancient Egypt – that is, more than 6,000 years ago.

It is regarded there as an independent invention (although there are doubts about its independence, because foreskin mutilation seems to have been established for a long time in the nearby areas of present-day Sudan and Chad). What is particularly interesting about ancient Egyptian circumcision is that, according to scientific evidence, it represents a sign of belonging to the cult of the sun god Amun-Ra, the main deity and creator of all things, no matter where and to whom it was exercised. A snippet of the ancient Egyptian cosmotonic myth suggests that Amun-Ra mutilated his genitals in some way. We know from Greek sources that the operation seems to be a privilege of the priest’s caste. […
The circumcision is an archaic ritual mutilation that cannot be justified in a civilized society and has no place in it.”
Ashley Montagu (1905-1999) British-American anthropologist, humanist, author, Mutilated Humanity[The Mutilated Humanity, presented at the Second International Symposium on Circumcision, San Francisco, California, April 30-3.May 1991

Note:The “Cologne judgment” handed down in the spring of 2012 considered the religious circumcision of a boy to be a criminal act.

The Old Testament Abrahamic God commanded circumcision in Genesis.

The 1.Book of Moses is from 1000 BC.originated. The final editing of the text was estimated to have taken place at the earliest in 400 BC.

“And God said to Abraham, “But you shall keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you, generation after generation.

This is my covenant between me and you and your descendants after you, whom you shall keep: all that is male must be circumcised with you.You must be circumcised on the flesh of your foreskin. This shall be done as a sign of the covenant between me and you. All male children with you, once they are eight days old, must be circumcised in each of your generations, whether they are born in the house or acquired for money by any stranger who is not descended from you.The one born in your house and the one who has been acquired for money must be circumcised. Thus my covenant, whose signs you wear to your flesh, shall be an everlasting covenant. An uncircumcised person, a male person who is not circumcised on the flesh of his foreskin, is to be eradicated from their tribal union. He broke my covenant.”
1.Moses 17, 9-14 (AT)

  • “Circumcision is a big deal, because no circumcision goes to hell.”
    Interpretation of Rabbi Bechai on the five books of Moses in the Parasha Vajéra.

The rite of male circumcision began with ancient Egyptian sexual worship.Circumcision serves the purpose of accelerating and simplifying sexual arousal.

  • “The Israelites had the boys circumcised because they knew that a man without a foreskin would be arousal faster than one with a foreskin.

The ancient Egyptians did the same, preparing the boys for the worship of Sexus.”

Psychological effects of childhood circumcision

  • “The neurological development of the infant, clinical experience, traumatology and research on circumcised infants all confirmed the conclusion that circumcision is traumatic.

Circumcision causes extreme pain and leads to a significant increase in heart rate and blood pressure.Some infants do not cry because the overwhelming experience has left them in a state of shock. When narcotics are used, they do not prevent pain or trauma. Circumcision has been observed to result in long-term behavioral changes in infants and impaired mother-to-child bonding. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed permanent changes in the brain of a circumcised infant.
Circumcision trauma persists in the long term. A survey of 546 circumcised men who complained of circumcision-related damage, conducted by a medical journal, revealed the following effects and feelings of emotion.
Anger, rage, sense of loss, shame, feeling mistreated and mutilated,
low self-esteem, anxiety,distrust and grief,
Relationship difficulties, sexual anxiety and depression,
“A lack of ability to express feelings, lack of empathy, and avoidance of intimate encounters,” he said.
Dr.Ronald Goldman, American psychologist, educator, managing director of the Circumcision Resource Center, Boston, author, “Psychologicaleffects of circumcision, presented by the Circumcision Resource Center, Boston, March 16, 2010

Currently, between 25 and 33 percent of men worldwide are circumcised.In Judaism, circumcision is considered the commandment of God. Although circumcision is not mentioned in the Koran, the Sunna, the “custom, customary course of action, traditional norm” of circumcision, is also practiced in Islam.

In the United States of America, a predominantly Christian country, male circumcision is widespread.Those who question them must expect reprisals (loss of employment), as the recent example of Eric Clopper revealed.

Note:Clopper’s video talk ‘Sex and Circumcision: An American Love Story’ took place in May 2018 at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre.Two days later, the student newspaper The Crimson published an article calling his performance a “gross anti-Semitic shouting.”Harvard University suspended Clopper’s employment to conduct a two-month illegal and illegal “investigation” (more like an inquisition). In order not to be a censor of the right to freedom of expression, the Harvard administration dismissed Klopper on the basis of an excuse. Last year, he wrote a book on the subject, and so far has received 20,000 dollars in donations through crowdfunding to challenge the Harvard decision in court.
