More evdence of Mrs YHWH
« on: September 23, 2013, 02:31:12 PM »
It's true.  The hebrew god, yhwh, had a wife.  Apparently they had a rather ugly split, and he demanded all her poles be taken down.   

Jewish archaeologists find new evidence of this.

Quote
Female figurines and inscribed prayers to a "divine couple" found in temples in Israel suggest that the “one God” of the Bible may not have been entirely alone.

A recent excavation in Tel Motza, not far from Jerusalem, found what archaeologists believe to have been a ritual building - with clay figures of animals and men from the time of the First Temple, according to Israel's Haaretz news site.

The find suggests that Iron Age religion in the area around Jerusalem may not have been monotheistic just before the time the Hebrew Bible – the basis of the Old Testament - started to be written.

leave it to YHWH to give his wife the short end of the stick (or pole in this case)  ;)

If xian hell really exists, the stench of the burning billions of us should be a constant, putrid reminder to the handful of heavenward xians how loving your god is.  - neopagan

That's what he gets for marrying a stripper.

Is it Asherah? I bet it's Asherah.

Yep. She's an old school life partner from back before the Canaanite gods El and Yahweh were rolled into one Hebrew deity. But I think it's a serious stretch to suggest that Iron Age Israelites weren't largely monotheists by the 10th century.

Would make sense.  How else did God get the Boy...even though the Boy and God are the same person.  Does that mean God and his Wife are one and the same?  This is getting really kinky now.

There was still a whole family of gods in the early parts of the Old Testament even some called sons of gods but try to get a religious person to admit it!!!! They did not merge into Yahweh until later.

There were also household gods which were different from the official religion. This included the asherah pole.

So old YHWH had a divorce way back?  I guess that would explain why he's so cranky throughout the OT.
Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.

Yeah, it hasn't had sex. Probably has a tiny dick. And didn't know what foreplay was. Also explains the jealousy, the want to have absolute love from everyone, and the constant tantrums when it doesn't gets it way.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

10th century or 10th century BCE?  Everything I read said they weren't monotheists until the Babylonian exile.  Which was 6th C BCE. Or possibly under Josiah, right before their ignominious defeat, in the 7th century BCE.

Seems to me God and His bunch could be guests on Jerry Springer.

I meant 10th century BCE but you're right! I got dyslexic with my (B)CE's.
