Since we're apparently trying to help people be less confused...
firstly according to the bible there is only 1 god.
So who exactly were Chemosh, Molech, Baal, Dagon, and all the rest again? Perhaps you were just making a semantic point about the singularity of the one true 'god', but that wouldn't seem to square with your support for this video.
Come to find out, the word for god back then was really just a word for "captain"...yes, only one captain on the ship, the rest are lesser ranked shipmates.
I quite like this literal stuff...My knowledge comes from the chronicle stuff, but sure...suddenly the bible makes some logical sense (and some misinterpretations clearly gumming up the works)...but if you think of it as a fair sized fleet of ETs around earth, then the mythos makes a nice picture.
I think according to memory, the two gods in the OT (God and Lord God) were akin to a captain and sort of like first officer. or sort of like district manager and local night manager. Also they came from two different places. the god guy came from the kingdom of god, whereas the lord god came from a place called heaven..so could have been more than one erm..race we are dealing with here...perhaps even three (given the snake seems to have been a completely different entity from either god or lord god)
So, perhaps some sort of galactic council of sorts and the stories of genesis may not have necessarily taken place on earth to begin with (garden of eden may have been a space station or different planet entirely, and the earth is actually Nod.)
Soo many theories based on the literal..makes the story very murky, yet somehow more believable (more based in a physical reality than some ghost stories)
