he's missing some major pieces in his theory. see, i don't think rome was copying "paganism", i think it was copying jesus and that paganism was just
a word rome made up to try to say other religions were not christian except catholicism.
if you look carefully at the sumerian texts, there was an ongoing battle between 2 gods who were sons of the heavenly father. these 2 gods were
known as enlil and enki and their heavenly father was known as anu. enki created humans. enlil, on the other hand, hated humans, and was constantly
complaining about them to anu, who had final say over what happened on the earth. he managed to convince the heavenly council that the earth needed
to be rebooted, and wiped clean of its human inhabitants, who he claimed were too noisy in their lovemaking and he couldn't get any sleep. this is
actually not what it sounds like. this is actually enlil reporting to anu, that the entire planet was sick.
wars, pollution, mixing of human dna with angelic (???) dna (nephilim), in effect the genetic code of the people was messed up badly. this is what
he meant by "noisy lovemaking" -- polluted dna, in addition, the planet was running out of edible food sources because even the plants were
genetically altered and no longer edible. so the human-angelic nephilim began to eat the humans as a food source. and as the people died their
cries went up to heaven. the translators just didn't understand that it meant, not noisy parenting, but rather polluted genetics.
the problem is, that enlil didn't like humans anyway so any opportunity to wipe them off the face of the planet, which he considered to be his planet
that humans were messing up, was good. at this point, all the members of the divine council were brought together, informed of the decision to flood
the planet, and told not to tell any humans or nephilim. fast forward to the sumerian version of noah.
enki, who had agreed not to say anything to the humans or nephilim, found a way around this by first, determining which humans were still human and
therefore not nephilim and not ill, and second, going to one of these unpolluted humans (noah was righteous in his GENERATIONS (his dna), and while
the human was inside a reed hut, enki proceeds to talk to the wall of the reed hut, which the human can hear. he warns the reed wall of the flood,
and gives instructions on how to build an ark to survive it and what animals to take onboard.
when it was over, and the flood waters subsided, enki told the human what to do next because enlil would be angry to see that a human had survived it.
now enki, who 1) created humans and 2) saved humans from the flood, was shown in some artifactws as being a fish hat guy, but he was not dagon. dagon
came about later, for the same reason the papacy did. to copy the savior and take advantage of his good reputation amongst the people.
if anything, i would say the papacy is doing the same thing, and that they are enlil-ites not enki-ites.
did you know it was enki who confused the language at babel?
