Right on cue, Charles Kos (anthropologist) comes out with another one of his quick takes, and this time he is looking at the ancient common faith. Without going into too much detail, this video looks at how the procession of death and resurrection was and is all over the western civilization lands. I'm including the first 2 comments, but the thing to realize is this; the common faith goes back to pre-flood, so it is the common faith that came first, then we see it pop up everywhere in places that supposedly were where civilization began; scholars will tell you it started in Sumeria or Egypt and spread... but that is wrong, it started tens of thousands of years ago and it is chronicled to have started tens of thousands of years ago at both Sumeria and Egypt, so I don't understand why the scholars are not listening to the ancient witnesses, why are they replacing the history with their own version that disagrees with the evidence? I don't really care what their motives are, I only care for the truth, so we have to dig past "higher learning" and get to the truth. In the beginning of the video Charles is telling you about the push-back he is getting from his colleagues, because he is not going along with traditional scholarship... love that!Here we go, this is for Christians who read the book of Genesis as if it was written by God himself. I know of one pastor who pushes that idea to the extreme of claiming that Genesis was written by God Almighty on tablets and those tablets were on Noah's Ark and handed down to Moses. I guess Moses forgot to mention that he wrote everything from these tablets? Or was Moses a charlatan, claiming he was receiving it directly from God's mouth, when all along he secretly had these tablets? I was just musing when I asked if Moses secretly stole the Ark of the covenant from the pyramids, but that was another item that someone was saying in a video. Christians form their beliefs from pastors who themselves did the same and all of it tends to be quite ignorant of the study Paul admonished Timothy to do for the work of the ministry.
So, I went after the study as a young minister, and it wasn't appreciated by the elders. Ask me if I care. I thank God I went off and studied on my own, instead of being locked into one dogma or another. I remember passing around the bread and wine at a conference my church was hosting, the elders were laughing at me in the front row, the guy running the training for ministry that I was in at the time snickered, "Damian doesn't know what he is doing"... I just smiled. But when one of the sisters back in the hundreds of seats dropped the bread onto the floor, she was scared to death that she had just spilled Jesus onto the rug, I told her, "relax, it is just bread, we'll sweep it up after the meeting."
Okay, on to today's sermon. (that's a joke) I've got this long thread going on for years all about early civilization and the book of Genesis. I did this for Christians so that they would not be so ignorant as to think the book of Genesis is anything more than a brief summary of history and setting and then a more in depth history of the patriarchs; Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It was written by Moses scribes to give the Israelites a knowledge of their own background. So what was that history? To start with, it wasn't prophecy, it was history.
It was the history of the lands that straddle two great civilizations; the fertile crescent. Okay, understand that this is history, this exists. One of the best sources for Sumerian history is actually the intact library at Assyria, which was fully excavated and carted off to England by thieves... we know them as archaeologists. And the best way to grasp the Egyptian history is to start off with the original history of that land, back when it was a colony of Atlantis. Then my 3rd video gives the meshing of these two cultures in the fertile crescent, because the Phoenicians cut down the timber and provided the skilled craftsmen that built the temple for David and Solomon. So, I chose these 3 videos to round out your understanding of the history of the region...

Now, let's stop and realize that Abraham was just another idol worshipper out of Ur of Sumer, back when Ur was a major seaport on the planet. So, Abraham traveled from one civilization to another, and the two were mingled in his descendants. This is important because this is what the kids were made of, neither the principal writer of the old testament covenant (Moses) or the new (Paul) had any personal knowledge of Abraham's God, they both met him and asked, "who are you?"... they didn't know him. That's because the God of the Bible was not known to the world, he was known only in the head of Abraham, and that personal knowledge does not pass onto his kids, the children have to enter their own personal knowledge of this God.
By the time Moses wrote Genesis, that personal knowledge was lost. when Moses disappeared for 40 days at Mt Sinai, the nation of Israel said to themselves, "he's not coming back, let's return to our gods in Egypt"... and they made Aaron build 2 calves of gold. These same people following Moses for 40 years were hard of heart and refused to enter into a personal relationship with this God that was leading Moses around. So God waited for the next generation that was born and reared in the wilderness, to lead them into the promised land. It is all about what you are made of, what you truly believe in your heart.
Okay, the whole point in writing this thread was to show what Genesis was made of. It was made from the history of the known world... specifically the western world. There is an older history over in the east; India and beyond. But the book of Genesis was the history in the west. It was an abbreviated history that told the beginnings of their civilization then quickly moved to Abraham, the real purpose of the book was to teach the Israelites who Abraham was, and who this God was that popped up on the burning bush and yanked them out of Egypt into the wilderness.

the religion is much older then "gizeh-religion" this is the sourse of all our development. kommunists have no idea. it s all callender-related! all these modern cultures have simply no idea how to use "the code" since than they are tryin and tryin but failing ever since to. so: look up saros-cycle 120 degree and exeligmos 360 digree. it is al related to the eclipse itself, the messiah-event itself. moon and sun together...they used this cycle way way before summerian times. carnac in france and teufelstein in austria/vorau are on 47 degree latitude. for purpose! since this ist the most northern place on witch you can overlook all north-pole stars at any given time on the great year. all of them, not only polaris. this is all calender-related! europe is full of these places, counting time since the beginning of our time. at least 470.000 bc in my oppinion. the saros is the key to undersand the pattons: IN MY OPPINION ONLY the next major event will happen on 4th of dezember 2021. saros 152 watch out(!) this is the next major event. until than we have a view eclipses between with will also be interresting. the old cultures watched this cycles because they knew what would happen if you forget... around that time we will witness volcanoes eathquakes and a lot of unusual weather pattons. they knew this! bonus: in karnak (egypt) even today they have a feast every year on june 21 sunset to honer this cycles.
