    Your question stumped me. But in finding an answer, I'm now in conversation with a rabbi. Thanks for the push. I'm currently in discussions with the rabbi over other aspects of this teaching.

    An answer to your question. The crime is that the masses stood idly by while a few committed one of the worst sins. Witnessing evil and doing nothing makes the bystander complicit in the crime.

    It wouldn't have been accepted otherwise. Otherwise using your belief, Altantis would be part of accepted history.

    We don't find that true.

    Its why mythology like the flood was adopted from Mesopotamian mythology. We see Israelite cultures rewriting the text to teach it sown parables and lessons and morals important to them.

    This is applies to many areas of early Israelite mythology. Israelites evolved from displaces Canaanites for the most part. Being beat down in multiple wars and having the cultures plural rebuild themselves time and time again. These cultures responsible for the text in exile, had no idea of their own origin and created one to pass on morals and parables that were important.

    The Israelites that were described in text ONLY resemble the 5th and 6th century people in exile and returning from exile as many claim they were forced to unify a very diverse and multi cultural religion.

    But I digress I think your here to proselytize and not debate the known facts here.



    Similar myths were used. Like Mesopotamian flood myths and gardens and creation myths.

    Funny that a previous culture had a fist man named Adamu and that this culture controlled Israelite cultures exiling them from their own land. And we see their influence in Israelite text.


    This is not up for debate, it is what academia teaches because we know these things with high degrees of certainty.

    None of early Israelite text is accepted as history. It factually holds NO historicity

    Then you're wrong again. I don't care what your beliefs are. I'm answering questions and giving my beliefs just like everyone else.

    I'm sorry, you may be very confused. I'm not giving faith based belief, im giving knowledge here backed by academia.
