psalms 82:1

God stands in the congregation of the mighty:He judges among the gods(plural)

Genesis 1:26

Then god said, "let us make man in our image, according to our likeness

Who exactlty is our image, if only one god should this not read his image.

Genesis 3:22

"behold, the man has become like one of us

I ask again, who is us?

Genesis 11:7

"come, let us go down and confuse their language

Again us?

Genesis 18:2

so he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, three men were standing by him:and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the ground


Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servants house

again lords

Think about this, gods came in ate dinner and had conversation. I wish I was there.

genesis 18:19

For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him."

Abraham choses one.

yes looked some of this up and they are good points. Not substantial but definitely has polytheistic leanings

Thank you.

Peace be with you!

It could also mean the holy trinity. Which would be plural.

You can't have a trinity w/o Jesus. The old testament pre-dates Jesus by thoasands of years.

posted on Feb, 9 2007 @ 03:22 PM
But Jesus was always with God. If you believe in the holy trinity. The messiah (son of God) has always been around and was foretold thousands of years before his comming. He just became Jesus when God made himself (his son) a person.

the whole "us" thing in gensis and various other plurals in reference to god in the bible come from the henotheistic traditions of the hebrews

before they were monotheists, they were henotheists
they had multiple gods
with 1 big head honcho god

I don't think so. I would suggest comparing the old testament to the sumerian scrolls. This history tells a very very interesting account of human origin. It is similar.

Actually, I'm in agreeance with you Rich. I am only arguing the trinity thing because that is what Christians believe (I think). Aren't the Summerian texts more of an alien race creating us and enslaving us?

Thanks about the avatar pic. I liked it also.

The annunaki. They are in all really ancient texts. They all tell similar stories. Floods, tower of Babel, angry gods. Something is going on here. I don't know what exactly, but I will keep searching. What are these ancient texts trying to tell us? I think it is the height of stupidity to write these texts off as some pre-historic science fiction.

It all goes back to astrotheology and cicilizations rise/fall. They were more advanced then us according to their writings and craftmanship.

I agree. I also think the same can be said of the bible.

posted on Feb, 9 2007 @ 03:48 PM
I believe the bible is in code. I think it is historically factual in the old testament. Because it is a repeat of the same historical texts from very different cultures.

posted on Feb, 9 2007 @ 03:52 PM
I actually have an interest into this stuff. Do you have any starting points for someone to read some of these ancient texts?

posted on Feb, 9 2007 @ 04:03 PM
Rich, excuse me if I am just being ignorant, but where exactly is the passage:
"God stands in the congregation of the mighty:He judges among the gods"

Is it suppose to be Psalm 8? I checked a few different versions but could not find it.

posted on Feb, 9 2007 @ 04:04 PM
Great find Rich! I cant wait to see how this discussion will pan out. So you think that the Annunaki are God(s)? If so, do you think that they created the code that is within the Bible to lead us somewhere or to something?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

psalm 82:1 sorry will fix

posted on Feb, 9 2007 @ 04:08 PM
I am still trying to figure that out. Are they similar to "sons of god" in the old test? I also might think there could be bad ones and good ones, that is annunaki.

posted on Feb, 9 2007 @ 04:10 PM
Us, as in the angels that were amongst God, He made man in the image of God, as he made the Angels in image of himself, and therfore we in the image of they.

The Gods, I believe he is refering to the Angles once again, but I may be wrong on that one I honestly don't know, but in genesis references to us are to God and his angels, God-of-the-angel-armies...

The lords are coming over for dinner. Please have evrything ready. What is this telling us? I would have loved to be at that dinner. They must have looked human. I believe annunaki could be fallen sons god of the old testament.

posted on Feb, 9 2007 @ 04:14 PM
Ahh there it is. Very interesting, I haven't come across that passage before. I don't know an ounce of Hebrew, but would there be a difference in words and usage in the original texts to distinct between actual existing gods and gods others simply believed to exist?

The whole translation/interpretation thing has always driven me crazy
