    Psalm 104/Hymn to the Aton

    Both religions are cosmic myths, i.e. stories of the constellations. YHWH is nothing more than a lunar god. Egyptian is primarily solar. Samson (meaning of the sun, from Shamash) represented the Hebrew solar aspect. Christianity would replace the solar aspect with Jesus, the sun following the...

    Is it kool to rape a girl?

    Bananna Brain is correct. Let me say something that is commonly missed by fundie Jesus people who read the OT. The OT was NOT a complete book of laws. The laws of the Jews were known and kept by the community and passed down orally until the Mishna was written. The Bible "laws" referred mostly...

    The Nephilim Race

    There was far more added to the story than just the 12th tablet. See the "Evolution of the Gilgamish Epic" by Jeffry Tigay. This is a respected scholarly work on the topic. The flood story existed as early as 1400 BCE, but was not in the 2200 BCE version of the tale.

    The Nephilim Race

    The flood story does NOT appear in the original Gilgamish epic, it was added at a later date. Gilgamish simply builds a stele to ensure his immortality. Thus Gilgamish's relationship to any flood and Nephilim was most likely manufactured by ancient authors.

    Obscure mythology...

    You might try the works of Gerald Massey, whose works are reprinted at Kessinger publishes. While his work centers on Egypt he makes comparisons to all parts of the globe. I have always liked Manly P. Hall too, who takes explanations to a new level.

    The Nephilim Race

    Scholars contend Nibruru was just another for Jupiter. Go figure.

    The Nephilim Race

    I read the 12th Planet as a child and that is where that stuff remains. Just because the ancients thought the planets were gods doesn't mean they were aliens.

    Mesopotamian Origins

    You have many questions that cannot be answered in a quick and dirty post. At the end of the age of Taurus, Egypt fell into anarchary and Mesopotamia became the dominate culture over the Canaanites and the rest of the world. Hammurabi (Solomon in the Bible) was the dominant force. The flood...

    Mithras and Christ

    What is interesting in the Bull of the heavens in Gilgamish was that it was slayed by two people, Gilgamish and Enkidu, who was called his brother. This would be Gemini who is in a position above the Bull's horn/head. Now the interesting thing is that both Gilgamish and Enkidu are solar. This is...

    Where was Eden, and does it matter?

    The divine couple was Virgo-Leo. Sometimes the woman is sometimes paired with a lion such as Heba (Hittite origen of Eve). Before 2000 BCE Leo was the home of the summer solstice which placed imporatance on solar gods such as Ra. The child was a constellation above Virgo which was originally...

    Polytheistic roots of monotheism

    Judaism developed out of the Canaanite religion. YHWH was Yereah, the moon god. The Jews used a lunar calendar. the name for month/moon are the same. Their god's name is also derived from the same word. Why do you think Asherah, Baal, and El are mentioned, but there is no mention of a moon god?

    Why?

    Ah Dondi, you forgot why "bad things happen to good people" and why are "innocent children born with birth defects." Maybe God isn't that nice a guy after all. It seems he has no power over nature. Can we petition God with prayer? Or is his mind already made up? What is the basic essence...

    Mesopotamian Origins

    You are correct. The syncretism is very complex at times. However all the cultures in the northern hemisphere in the European/Asian/African arena of influence all saw the same sky and utilized similar myths to explain the constellations and used the same planets, sun and moon to name their gods...

    Mithras and Christ

    The bull headed angel or Cherub are all a combination of the the four guardian angels of the heavens, They represent the four cardinal points, Regulus in Leo the Lion was the flaming sword at Eden. Being a flaming rotating sword in the east, it would also represent the rising sun (this really...

    Is it kool to rape a girl?

    It is an interesting passage. A few decades ago in Chile, such a case arose. A man raped a woman and agreed to marry her to avoid prosecution, apparently they still have such a law on the books. What I was amazed was the number of preachers who publicly came forward and declared such a law as...

    "his voice as the sound of many waters."

    The image of Christ in verses 1:12-16 is pure paganism, combining many gods worshipped in the area and Jesus Christ. The seven candlesticks are the seven sacred planets. The golden girdle about the breasts (paps) belongs to Aphrodite (Venus). The white hair belongs to Father Time, Kronos...

    Mithras and Christ

    The birth of the both Jesus and Mithra is solar. What we know about Mithraism was for the most part written after Christianity, although we have evidence the religion is older. I balk at the 2000 BCE date for the existance of this religion. Most likely it was developed about the same time as...

    Atlantis

    Madame Blavatsky didn't always use source material. Some of her information came through "channeling." My "channeling" claims her "channeling" is wrong and I have geological data to back me up. Go figure.

    How Egyptian were the Jews?

    But Hammurabi had the same resume' as Solomon. Both occupied the same land, known for wisdom, wrote proverbs, built great city-states and temples. Why they even had the same adversaries. None of these things can be found in the Iron Age period supposedly when Solomon live. Go figure.

    Atlantis

    Island to small. No known people lived on the island, let alone an advanced culture. The time period is too far back for the collective memory of mankind. This would have been an oral tradition for nearly 10,000 years. Not likely the tale could have existed that long and even less likely it...
