Just a little tip.
You didn't provide enough evidence in your post. In fact, you didn't provide any evidence in your post. You just asserted a bunch of stuff. I
know that the Old Testament is largely derived from other mythological sources, but I can't recall right now where the evidence for this is. In
fact, to gather evidence that this was true
would take some hardcore research, when this isn't exactly my field, whereas apparently it's
Your assertion that the ENTIRE old testament is ripped off is completely without foundation so far as I know. where's the evidence?
And your assertion that the sources they were ripped off from are fictional -- that's faulty too! Huge swaths of myth are based in some sorts of
actual events. There probably was a severe flood in the Mesopotamian and Middle Eastern regions, so Noah's Ark would be an adaptation of a
of a real event, not of pure fiction.
And the idea that it's all astrology is just absurd. What does that even mean? astrology is the motions of the stars and planets, and I dont' see
much of that happening in the old testament, save that one time God stopped them all from moving.
