The proof has been established...
Ur (ancient Babylon) has several examples of moon-god worship. More portable objects have been removed from their sites and are held by the
British Museum in the Babylonian Room.
Just a simple matter of reading the factual evidence. Anything else is pure speculation and subject to the speculators personal biases..
Thanks for setting the historical record straight.
I've come to the conclusion that a great majority of the more energetic posters hereon tend to fall into two groups . . .
1. Those who pontificate wholesale primarily out of their emotional biases and pretend--indeed--seem to BELIEVE that such ARE FACTS and that all the
other simpletons in the world just haven't recognized their brilliant appreciation of the facts yet . . .
2. Those who require to view something at high noon with 12 co-witnesses--several pairs of which are specialist experts in the various factors of the
phenomena being viewed . . . and all of whom meet immediately and compare high quality digitized photos and videos in HDTV . . . and come to an
absolutely unanimous chorus of absolute agreement on all the details of the witnessed event . . .
or else it just AIN'T SO.
Life is pretty complex . . . and, as my Mormon Bishop dissertation chairman said . . . just about any cockamaymee explanation will do.
While I don't agree with him theologically--he had a point.
But sheesh . . . so much of what gets fiercely posted as absolute proven facts . . . is raw emotional bias with little more than hostility toward the
opposing perspective to support it.
In this case, the stars for the OP are numerous beyond belief--if one wants to try and coorelate the number of stars with some sort of objective merit
of a post . . .
While your quite factual posting putting the OP's nonsense contention to a merciful quick death . . . has at last check 2 stars, of which I'm
responsible for one.
This NWO rush to homogenize and blackwash particularly Christianity seems to have a lot of followers here.
And, the Jihadis and other Muslims have played fast and loose with their history for centuries. The whole structure is given to adhering to the
pontifications of the personally most respected local Imam or most currently widely, locally acclaimed Imam . . . or the loudest, or shrillest or
bloodiest or some such. History be flushed, or at best mangled all out of recognition.
The behaviors you cited along with the history of the name Allah should have given all such ranting posters cause for contrition and apology. But I
won't hold my breath.
The tribal religions and worship behaviors wholesale were carried over into Islam . . . add in a good deal of plagirizing; some homogizing; a LOT of
political waring conquest and rationalizations for same . . . pretend one's arrogance is equal to God's blessings on Abraham, Isaac and Jacob . . .
and one is off and running with a grand new coercive and very bloody social force to be reckoned with. Won him a lot of territory at the time. And
threatens lots more even now.
Anyway--thanks for facts--accurate, historical facts.
