Moon Worshippers Everywhere

Judaism is a monotheistic offshoot of Ur (Chaldean) pantheistic moon worship (Sīn). Tradition, not archaeological record, teach that around 1800 B.C.E., Abram lived in the plain of Shinar, at Ur. Also according to Hebrew tradition, Abram left his homeland and stayed a while in Haran (also a center of cult moon worship) before settling in …

Richard Rohr’s “The Universal Christ” is New Age “Christ Consciousness” Mysticism

The Flood in the Ancient Near East (RJS)

The flood is depicted as having cosmic proportions and the telling uses universalistic rhetoric. Genesis is stronger in this regard than the Mesopotamian accounts. Tremper and John conclude: “The widespread nature of the destruction is indicated by the use of univeralistic rhetoric well-known for cataclysmic events, especially of a cosmic nature, in the ancient world.” …
