case in point:
Did you know that the story of the Tower of Babel is also in an even older document than the Torah? here it is:
THE NAMSHUB OF ENKI
Once upon a time, there was no snake, there was no scorpion,
There was no hyena, there was no lion,
There was no wild dog, no wolf,
There was no fear, no terror,
Man had no rival.
In those days, the land Shubur-Hamazi,
Harmony-tongued Sumer, the great land of the me of princeship,
Uri, the land having all that is appropriate,
The land Martu, resting in security,
The whole universe, the people well cared for,
To Enlil in one tongue gave speech.
Then the lord defiant, the prince defiant, the king defiant,
Enki, the lord of abundance, whose commands are trustworthy,
The lord of wisdom, who scans the land,
The leader of the gods,
The lord of Eridu, endowed with wisdom,
Changed the speech in their mouths, put contention into it,
Into the speech of man that had been one.
Enki broke up Enlil's World Order at Babel. Who is Enlil? His name is the template for all mesopotamian, ugaritic and many egyptian god names. Who
is Enki? His name is the template for many egyptian and mesopotamian god names. And both of their names can be traced to Norse beliefs as well. How
is this possible if they were the same guy? They are NOT the same guy. They are both present in the story of the creation of humans and the story of
the re-creation of the planet after some unnamed catastrophe. they are both all over the texts that predate babylon. and they are both sons of the
enki created the adam male and female copies of elohim, created the human adam and eve, and gave them procreation. he also re-created the lifeforms on
the planet following that unnamed cataclysm. he was the god of life, water, healing, and abundance. the lord of wisdom and leader of the divine
council. he warned the noah figure about the flood, and gave him instructions on how to build an ark. he broke up enlil's world order at babel and
confused the languages (sounds like pentecost without a translator).
enlil owned the planet as a piece of real estate. he hated humans and viewed them as lesser lifeforms who should be enslaved and tossed out when they
were no longer useful. he decreed the flood. he was a big environmentalist, who viewed humans as destroyers of his lovely garden planet. he decreed
that human dna be nerfed as a result of the addition of procreation in the human genome.
enki said go forth, be fruitful and multiply. enlil said, go forth, don't be fruitful and don't multiply lol in fact, if the idea of multiplying
crosses your mind, consider it a sin and a direct disobedience to my law. jesus tried to warn people that the law of the god of this world is so
strict as regards humans, that no human would be saved without intervention. even thinking it was the same as doing it.
these are 2 different gods. one of them is actually not a good guy - he's the accuser, the dude that hates humans. the other is the creator, and he
not only loves his creation, he died for them. and neither of them is the father in heaven. however, both (actually all 3) are called jehovah in the
old testament. but their deeds are quite different and have to be painstakingly and prayerfully extracted from the text. it's a long, arduous
process. and none of them is the holy spirit. the holy spirit doesn't really make a big debut till the new testament, although it's alluded to as
residing in the holy of holies on occassion in the old testament.
