Moses killing of the bull ended the golden age of Taurus (Bull) bringing in the age of Aries (Ram).

The 12 cows or bulls might be related to golden age of Taurus. But it also might be burrowed from Hinduism. In Hinduism Aditi is mother of the gods and all twelve zodiacal spirits. She is often disguised as a cow. A cow in Hinduism is revered because it is strong yet passive.

hmm..i like the way you think

You guys are one scary lot. God truly is longsuffering, not to stick a fork in it.

If God wills all, then he even wielded you creating this thread and my subsequent responses. He wielded people being gay just as he did them being straight, long long, long ago. Oh yeah, but we will all burn unless we play nice, right?


Freewill, God doesnt will all
The Lords prayer we ask "your will be done"

The atheist hive mind is complex but ignorant

anyway, about Enoch not being part of the bible

Remember Your "copied Bible™" comes AFTER ALL the other ones... And if it was so 'pure' why the revisions and rewrites?

You keep saying the bible was copied, evidence???

if i had to guess cattle was big business for the priests in the first temple. People brought cattle to sacrifice to god from all over the countryside. In fact, if you didn't bring one there were markets where you could buy calves for sacrifice. In fact, they had low-cost options if you couldn't afford bulls. You could also buy sheep or goats and turtledoves or pigeons. The level of sacrifice needed depends on why you were making the sacrifice. For example huge sacrifices for things like weddings. There was actually two types of sacrifices one where everyone shared think giant BBQ. The other burnt offerings where nothing was left to share. But the big point is an entire industry formed around the sacrifice of animals. So it doesn't surprise me the priests were going to show animals everywhere at the temple.

In fact there were so many animal sacrifices that it was said priests were in blood up to their waists. This would have to be the largest slaughterhouse in human history.

no.they arent crazy.they are very nice and friendly. so, we understand these cows are holding or supporting a body of water.

posted on Sep, 10 2018 @ 05:26 AM
water itself is very gentle and friendly entity. which shows these cows are pretty much so also. but then why some bull killing in mithra thing? to support the water body in another way probably.

oh it vanished again.

they are like parts of the same element. the bull and water. but if you remove bulls and break the release that much of water...hmm. it is spoilt. hmm no, maybe you get some air type of thing.

Ok, back to the original question. Mormon temples have baptismal fonts held up by 12 cows/bulls/oxen, whatever. Per their description, the oxen represent the 12 tribes of Israel among other things.

Why are oxen used in the design of our temples’ baptismal fonts?

Aleph + Lamed

EL (EL, ELyon, ELohim) was the Biblical epithet for the Most High before YHWH.

In the Paleo-Hebrew script, the Semitic letter Aleph was written with the pictograph of an ox head. Furthermore, the Canaanite deity known as EL was depicted with oxen horns.

All an allusion to the Egyptians Apis Bull? Minoan Bull-Jumping ritual? The astrological Age of Taurus?

Every religion since Gobekli Tepe has worshiped the cow. No wonder (see: Magic Mushrooms).

Out of the Arbahamic Religions, Christainity is the only one that did not have or allow blood sacrifices to be committed as a form of worship.

Which probably one of the reasons it got so popular, I mean more food for the poor right?

Hope all the sacrifices are in vain to summon rain, and the idiots that beleive will starve to death for being so stupid.

Btw, isn't sacrifice out lawd by the ten commandments for it being polytheistic in origin. I mean, it why Moses murdered a bunch idolators. What would killing a cow have to do with the son of Israel any ways, when he said to be the sacrificial lamb.

What waste of beef.
