your scholarship is WAY beyond the capacity of many who work these forums; it saddens me, but to be honest, I think your title is a little
off-putting, because many will not even know what you're talking about (I didn't!), but because I have a great deal of respect for you, I clicked on
s/f from lil ole me...
and thanks for furthering the advancement of unraveling ancient mythologies!

Thanks for also taking note of the two URL's above, as this one had to have people think a little more deeply to gain the significance of its
This City of Ur goat depiction is just as important as the Ram story of Abraham from Jerusalem. This appears the issue that the Masons use in their
search for Ancient Mesopotamian gods, as part of the Blue Lodge initiations. The Masons make use of a goat, and many connect the goat to an
association of evil. And the issues of just why any real god would demand destruction of animals, but this burning to ashes is a lot like the theme
for Hell, and thus Satin/Devil, etc.
Then those that know about Near East archiology know that the University of Pennsylvania has the largest and best collections to include a huge
collection of the Sumerian Tablets, and this gold statue of the Goat in a Thicket.
There is so much that ties together the Sumerian (Near East) area to both Egypt and Jerusalem, and even the Jerusalem temple kept a Egyptian style
architecture and the large stone building craft for Solomon's temple and Herod's wall was definitely part of the Sciences of Egypt.
So now, some of those associations can begin to be considered.
One thing appears for certain, is that the religion of Judiasm appears to miss a number of key points that has the religion unable to figure out if it
worships the signs for Hell or the signs for Heaven upon the Earth.
One thing one can begin to see is the Islam didn't like this temple burning thing, and they resist the imagery of a temple that would make that type
worship as being akin to a real god.
One thing is for sure, since the Temple Mount area now has two religious Islam sites, the rule for the Soloman temple is that they could not build
over graves or previous sites of religion temples or altars.
But one can see that the Soloman's temple appeared to have been a combination of heaven and hell and Enki and Enlil and nobody could separate the
differences until the Jesus and Essene came along and resisted burned offerings and learned more toward Enki or Ea as being the Father, or Abba, to
which Jesus spoke.
With the Springs Waters one finds the worship of Enki, and with the sacrafice with fire more that of Enlil/Yahweh. Old symbols of triangles one
pointed up is Fire and one pointed down is water, and combined it the Shield of David, or David's star. So, even the original gods of Fire and
Water appear in the temple's significance.
It appears the temple's original imagery was complex and involved a huge amount of superstition about these creator gods that continued to color all
the Jewish thinking and pontifications on god until this very day.
Stories like Soddom and Gomorrah are best told as nature's effects in the Rift Zone at the Dead Sea was part volcanic effects and part oil deposit
linked. Nature's forces built and the people were affected by the toxic emissions that caused issues with thinking clearly, retention of calcium
and the turn to stone issues, and the sexual effects of many toxic chemicals on the body. What was just a process of nature on man, turned into the
highly distorted story of this via old Rabbis sitting around crafting an impressive story to have man fear god and not really adequately understand
the process of nature's ways.
But these days, the veil of the temple is lifting and more are beginning to see they really didn't have god in a box or behind the curtain.
