The Roman Procurator smiled "What is Truth"?

I sense from descriptions in the 
Hebrew Bible, that Yahweh,
the god of the ancient Hebrews 
started in their oral 
'Nomad Folklore' was a raging 
male volcano god. Changed in 
location to abide in a non volcano 
called Mount Sinai. 
Here are some examples 
(But first it is not the Mount Sinai 
that  they claim today, which is not 
a volcano, but could easily be
 Mount Bedr, a volcano in 
north-western Saudi Arabia). 
The mountain that is currently 
called Mount Sinai is not the one 
described in the Bible.  
 When Moses took the Israelites 
out of Egypt, each tribe was 
gathered under its own 
banner -- illustrated with an 
image of a god. 
A lion was depicted on the banner 
of Judah, probably looking much 
like the Egyptian Sphinx. 
A serpent, named Nechushtan
was depicted on the banner of the 
tribe of Dan. Speaking of Dan 
let us unravel the following 
inconsistency in time.   
 In the 14th chapter of
Genesis, the writer gives an 
account of Lot being taken 
prisoner in a battle between the 
four kings against five, and 
carried off; and that when the 
account of Lot being taken, 
came to Abraham, he armed
all his household and marched 
to rescue Lot from the captors, 
and that he pursued them 
unto Dan (ver. 14).
To show in what manner this 
expression pursuing them unto Dan
applies to the case in question, 
I will refer to two circumstances,
the one in America, the other 
in France. The city now 
called New York,in America, 
was originally New Amsterdam; 
and the town in France,  lately 
called Havre Marat, was before 
called Havre de Grace. 
NewAmsterdam was changed to 
New York in the year 1664; 
Havre de Grace to Havre Marat 
in 1793. Should, therefore, 
any writing be found,
though without date, 
in which the name of New York 
should be mentioned, it would be 
certain evidence that such a 
uniting could not have been 
written before, but must have been 
written after New Amsterdam 
was changed to New York, 
and consequently, not till after
the year 1664, or at least during 
the course of that year. And, in
like manner, any dateless writing 
with the name of Havre Marat would
be certain evidence that such a 
writing must have been written after
Havre de Grace became Havre Marat, 
and consequently not till after 
the year 1793, or at least during 
the course of that year.
I now come to the application of 
those cases, and to show that
there was no such place as Dan, 
till many years after the death of
Moses, and consequently, 
that Moses could not be the writer 
of the book of Genesis, where 
this account of pursuing them 
unto Dan is given. The place that 
is called Dan in the Bible was 
originally a town
of the Gentiles called Laish; 
and when the tribe of Dan seized 
upon this town, they changed its 
name to Dan, in commemoration 
of Dan, who was the father of that 
tribe, and the great grandson of 
To establish this in proof, 
it is necessary to refer from Genesis,
to the 18th chapter of the book 
called the Book of Judges. It is there
said (ver. 27) that they (the Danites) 
came unto Laish to a people
that were quiet and secure, 
and they smote them with the edge 
of the sword 
(the Bible is filled with murder), 
and burned the city with
fire; and they built a city (ver. 28), 
and dwelt therein, and they
called the name of the city Dan, 
after the name of Dan, their
father, howbeit the name of the city 
was Laish at the first.    
This account of the Danites 
taking possession of Laish and
changing it to Dan, is placed 
in the Book of Judges immediately
after the death of Sampson. 
The death of Sampson is said to have
happened 1120 years before Christ, 
and that of Moses 1451 
beforeChrist; and, therefore, 
according to the historical 
arrangement, the place was not 
called Dan till 331 years after 
the death of Moses.    
 Later, a bronze image of 
Nechushtan was placed in 
Solomon's temple -- and stayed 
there until much later, 
when King Hezekiah melted the 
bronze from which the idol 
was made. It is possible that 
the tribes adopted these gods 
during the hundreds of years 
they spent in Egypt. 
Or perhaps the tribes were 
never part of the descendants 
of Abraham that accepted Yahweh 
during the covenant, 
and only joined this loose 
alliance of tribes later. 
Possibly, the covenant 
never happened and was only 
a later myth, added to the 
cycle of origin stories 
in the Bible. No one 
really knows. But the images 
on the banners were there, 
showing the tribes' alliances 
to other gods. 
The tribe of the Levites, 
with whom Moses was associated, 
was another matter altogether. 
They worshiped a thundering, 
fierce god, whose location 
was either Mount Horeb, 
or Mount Sinai. 
Very likely the two mountains 
are one and the same -- 
there is no proof either way. 
Was this god the same Yahweh, 
the God of Abraham? 
Very possibly. If not, 
the two entities, 
Yahweh of Abraham and 
the warrior god of the 
Levites were combined into 
one impressive entity that 
Moses, very likely a full-blooded 
Levite himself, had adopted 
as his own God. That is proven 
by the fact that later, 
only the Levites acted as priests 
to Yahweh in the various Temples.  
One of the main power of the 1% 
has been imposing Hearsay Religion 
of different slants dividing even 
more-so us 99%. Did you know 
that when Moses was written to 
have come down from 
speaking face to face with the 
Hebrew God, who lived on top of a 
volcano originally and not Mount Sinai, 
Moses was depicted to 
have grown horns because 
the almighty Sun had just left 
the great year of the Bull 
and entered the Celestial 
Zodiac Calendar of the Ram..
You shall be aware of this 
and much more reading 
all about these subjects in 
Thomas Paine's Informative Book 
"The Age of Reason".
