Clif High - YHWHEh, gods? What'cha gonna do?....
YHWH came to earth about 5000 years back. He was not alone.
YHWH is just one of the El (Elohim) who the jews decided to follow. He offered them a choice & they chose him. He accepted their forced decision.
YHWH is not a god. We know this as YHWH demanded the jews provide him with 6 liters of alcohol a day. Also he made them pay fines in the form of silver shekels. In addition they had to perform regular census of all that YHWH owned.
YHWH was not omniscient if he had to have the jews count themselves & their flocks & lands so that YHWH would know how much he ‘owned’.
YHWH was not transcendent, but had a physical body that craved drink and the fats of new born lambs, or new born children.
YHWH needed the jews to supply him with silver coinage as that was the currency that the Elohim used between themselves for settlement of their interactions, especially their gambling debts. YHWH is the one who invented, and sanctioned the collection of interest for loans.
YHWH provided, not 10, but actually 613 commandments on how the jews should live as his servants. Most of these were about how to prepare the ‘burnt offerings’ of abdomen fats from children, killed in their raids on the pre-Adamite humans, to his liking, and how to make the 6 liters of fortified wine he required daily.
YHWH is reckoned as one of over 240 EL, who were claiming to be ‘lords’ over the humans they found on earth. He was not the boss of the Elohim, nor even in the top tier of the El here on earth. We would think of him as being a captain or major in an army that had ranks extending to General.
YHWH was such an aggressive personality that the entourage of the El basically hated him and worked against him. Those support staff for the Elohim, translated as ‘arch angels’ who worked for the chief of the Elohim got such shit from YHWH that they constantly plotted his undoing.
YHWH instructed his jews in killing humans. When he sent the Israelites against the hunter-gatherer tribes in E-Din (what we call Eden, now basically Mesopotania down to Egypt, YHWH claimed all of the belly fats from all the children, and some of the women, that his jews killed.
YHWH did not allow the jews to take prisoners, or accept surrender.
Yep, it is going to be a very interesting rest of this decade as we get into Serious Real History.
Read the Naked Bible that you may know how the translators have been misled, and how they were played, and have played you with their translations.
