The Ancient Gods

Ancient Semitic God BaalĒl (אל) from the Northwest Semitic language translates into English as either 'god' or 'God' or left as is (- Not translated) as El, depending on the context.


Taken from the book -  'The Encyclopedia of World Mythology' ISBN 0-75258-444-8
States on page 35 that ;

El - The etymological origin of the word El is still unclear. It was the common designation for 'god' in all Semitic languages, from the Akkadian Ilum to the Arabic Allah. In the Ugaritic myths El, like the Sumerian An, represents divine authority and cosmic order. He is the Father of all gods (except of Baal who is the son of Dafan) and, like enlil in Mesopotamia, the source of royal power. He is also the 'Father of Mankind' and has connections with human fertility and childbirth (see Aqat and Keret). His relationship with Baal is ambiguous, especially as Baal myths show that there is tension between them.

In ancient times the Gods were mostly Gods of Elements, such as the water, the fire, the Wind, the earth, the mist, the hot, the moist, Love (Amour), anger, lust, ect.
Earlier on I spoke very short about some Semitic gods, a picture illustrating ‘the Moon – the King – the Sun’. The most obvious reasons as to these stories did not live on, can only be because we neglect them.  

Semitic means ;
In linguistics and ethnology, Semitic (from the Biblical "Shem", Hebrew: שם, translated as "name", Arabic: سام) was first used to refer to a language family of largely Middle Eastern origin, now called the Semitic languages. This family includes the ancient and modern forms of Amharic, Arabic, Aramaic, Akkadian, Ge'ez, Hebrew, Maltese, Tigrinya, among others.    -   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semitic

The Semitic speaking people date back to the (2nd) second millennium B.C, so fare known. It should be understood that the first King who lead Amorite tribes into the south of Syria, was King Hammurabi, he is also the main man that made the city of Babylon.

The Sumerians civilization ;

It should also be understood that these were the days that Sumerians stopped speaking their language.
Sumerians lived in present-day Iraq , back then they had two cities they called Tigris and Euphrates. The Sumerians civilization goes back to the (4th) fourth millennium B.C .

       

      

       

Ancient Semitic God BaalThe symbol which modern people remember the most, and link it too is the symbol which Hitler choose
– This does not mean that the Symbol in itself was evil or bad.
This symbol was found on Sumerian pottery dating from 5 thousands years B.C. In fact professors have proven it to be like the ‘ying and yang’ symbol. The Sumerians would make two of these symbols, each pointing in one end towards each other, and in the other end away from each other. It is said to mean the feminine element and the masculine element.
(the two which are made from one).

To this I would like to add another note, This Cross is also found on a manuscript dating from the 800 century. This symbol was painted on the chest of Buddha, and it Meant the cycles of life, birth, and rebirth. The only place this symbol is rarely seen in ancient history among some African places, but besides this, it is very popular among the ancient, as a 'good' symbol. - Click here to See.

Sumer (or Šumer) was one of the early civilizations of the Ancient Near East, located in the southern part of Mesopotamia (southeastern Iraq) from the time of the earliest records in the mid 4th millennium BC until the rise of Babylonia in the late 3rd millennium BC. The term "Sumerian" applies to all speakers of the Sumerian language. Sumer together with Ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley Civilization is considered the first settled society in the world to have manifested all the features needed to qualify fully as a "civilization".   - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So the Sumerian people were indeed a much older people than the 'Semitic civilization'.

 

The Semitic civilization ;

The name Baal has for a thousand years been referred to as Devil like, or an evil demon. There is a very HUMANE reason for this; Modern version or understanding of old/ancient texts. It starts with the wining empire claming his religion/or belief as the most high, and thereby the others slowly become ‘the evil’ spirits and such.
The name Baal merely means ‘Lord’ or ‘Master’.
He is a weather god, named after a mountain peak, by the Semitic people.
He is sometimes referred to as the ‘Rider of the cloud’ (probably much like the northern god Thor).

Our Greek ancestors are the last people to have seen our whole universe as a ‘Total’ to the understanding of the modern word of ‘Religion/belief’.  

The symbols which empires use are almost always like the very ancient symbols, just edited in a small way.

 

Now there is no need for me to mention ALL of these more ancient civilizations, because the only thing I wanted to point out here was that our history seems much older than we apparently like to discuss. The Sumerian people, were so many different culture together back then, that it looked much like westerns cities today.

Our History (And us) Seems locked in a cycles of self fulfilling prophesies)
