First, let me say, I'm not stating any of this in favor of the validity of Judeo-Christian mythology. It's clear the Old Testament borrowed from
other mythologies of the region, which came before the time of the Isrealites, up until Leviticus (or Vayikra, if we are being official).
I agree with nearly your entire post, except the first line, but would add that man wants and believes in the science fiction future sold to them by
Jewish screenwriters. It is their faith.
Our Creator set his words down for us. From start to finish it shows man separated from his creator and the repercussions of such a separation - man
made religion and the horrible oppression under such systems. We had the truth in the beginning, it's why the similarity of events is echoed in all
ancient artifacts that we discover - variations of the same events. The Bible shows us this, from someone adding "Do not touch" in Eve's words to
the serpent (Our Creator did not say it), to Jesus Christ standing before men who had created a religion which nullified nearly all the commands of
Our Creator, thereby oppressing the people under rules and regulations that hunched them over and clouded their reasoning. He stood there and called
them adversaries to their face. Satan means adversary. When Jesus Christ declared to mankind (and yes, Judea represents the world prophetically) that
He would set them free, He set them free from the dogma and doctrines of men who only sought to stand between them and their Creator who declares
Himself TO BE: Provider, Saviour, Helper, Creator, Healer, etc. Today, we see that man has once again set himself up between man and his Creator -
doctors are the healers, the military are our protectors, our men of science and technology will save us, the state will be our provider, etc Our
Creator's name is varied throughout scripture - which most atheists believe denotes "multiple gods" - because His Name IS His Character.
Today, we are descending straight back into times like the Dark Ages and the ancient world, including ancient Greece, ancient Rome, Babylon etc, as
true faith in Jesus Christ dissolves and is replaced by the false anointing of the serpent - popularly known as kundalini. Our churches and secular
society are descending into superstitions of those times - rubbing statues for good luck, worshipping angels and demons, calling psychic hotlines,
going to palm readers, consulting people who think they speak to the dead, playing with ouija boards, ghosts, believing that we are gods, aliens as
"sky gods", rules and regulations covering every aspect of lives (Pharisee laws), seeing angels in the sky, goddess worship, Queen of Heaven
worship, chanting, shamanism, statues bleeding, levitations, gladiator style fighting, child sacrifice, exaltation of sex, penis worship, animal
whispering, lighting candles and burning incense, praying to the "god" of fortune etc .
Hundreds on ATS alone are now declaring themselves to be "gods" and "divine". All of those ancient writings from the ancient world, and all the
carvings left, show civilisations that worshipped man as god. Instead of looking at the cause of why people are declaring themselves to be "gods"
today (through eastern meditative practices), we are erroneously concluding that the ancient world had truth! The ancient world was destroyed because
of the same delusions and superstitions sweeping the planet today because it led to continual wickedness. We are oppressing ourselves as we reject
Salvation which frees us from all of those things. We are thus letting the beast nature within man come right out, and that very beast nature is what
only Our Saviour can transform back into the image and likeness of God. We aren't in the image and likeness of God because Adam beget Seth in HIS OWN
IMAGE AND LIKENESS.
The Old Testament didn't "borrow" from those other religions - it is your Creators words explaining how they came about and why man is the way he
is. He sums it up here:
So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your
ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”
But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that
the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. As they have done from the day I
brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly
and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.” 1 Samuel 8:4-9
The Bible shines the Light on darkness, man as beast.
