If Thoth were the true GOD, then he would be venerated or at least known through generation after generation worldwide.
Thoth was known, and venerated, from roughly 3000 BCE until roughly 400 CE when Egypt was finally conquered. He was then revitalized and once again
discovered in the mid 1800s and venerated and worshiped by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn well into the 1900s. His worship is still known and
practiced by Wiccans, Neo Pagans, Pagans, and modern-day polytheists. Which means that Thoth has been venerated and worshiped consistently for roughly
YHVH was first venerated about 1200 BCE, and his worship has lasted until the modern day (2012 CE) which gives him roughly 3000 years of consistent
worship. Quite a significant difference between Thoth and YHVH. So your point is moot.
It is no accident that the Bible has primacy over The Book of Thoth.
The "Book of Thoth" is a tome by Aleister Crowley outlining his Tarot deck. The mythical book of Thoth is just that: a mythical book. The "Book of
Coming Forth By Day" (Book of the Dead to the layman) was composed around 1100 BCE, while the Tanakh was completed between 600 and 400 BCE. So, even
the Egyptian texts are older, and are still in use in the modern day by the same folks I mentioned above (and myself, I have a copy as well).
You won't go to a motel and open the drawer and find it in the nighstand.
And the only reason you'll find a Gideon Bible is because the Gideon's placed them there without consent from hotel managers. Your point here is
still moot. Did you know the Bible is the most bought, but also the most given-away, returned, and unread book in history? More people have read the
collected works of Shakespearre cover-to-cover than the Bible.
The rest of your reply is historical revisionism. There was no great flood, Yahweh does not predate Sumerian and Akkadian civilization (where Nimrod
is from). YHVH is not the original god, or the original creator, or the first to use the myths found in the Bible, etc. The Hebrew's plagiarized the
majority of their work.
Have a nice day!
