Through ignorance, misunderstanding, custom and tradition the Jewish and Christian religions have combined three distinct and individual entities into one being they call God. This is contrary to their holy scriptures. There are in fact three and individual entities in scripture who are know by this title. There is GOD, the universal creator, the Lord God the creator of man and then there is Jehovah, the God of the Jews. He is the one we are most concerned about. For he was the First Godfather.
In the book entitled "Jehovah the First Godfather, an agnostic's view of God, the Bible and Religion," the appropriate scriptures are use to separate and explain the differences between these three entities and to explain the part they play in the creation of the universe, the creation of man and the religion of one group of nomads called the Israelites.
For the lack of an understanding of the where, when, how, why and by whom the universe was created, we say that it is the handiwork of GOD. He, She or It designed, created and controls this creation through laws and forces we are just now beginning to understand. According to biblical scripture organic life, both animal and vegetable, were a part of that original design. Primitive organic life began before the stars and moon were put into motion. ( Gen. 1:11-13.) After the formation of the stars, moons and planets, more advance forms of organic life came into existence. The Bible identifies a few of those the more advanced forms of life. One of the species of life created as a part of that original design and may well have originated in the seas of another world was a race of beings, identified by Jehovah during his instruction of Moses, as the "living creature." It was a form of life which evolved into an intelligent, creative thinking race of beings who became so advanced in their culture, civilization, science and technology that they began to travel the stars. In their travels they stepped down upon many planets. Some they tried to colonized. The earth was one of those planets. That colonization attempt failed.
In their one of their later visits a few thousand years ago they came to this planet to mine for minerals. It was during this time that mankind was created. We were naked slaves created to mine for the minerals they desired, to wait on and serve them at their leisure.
Our creation was not by some heavenly or divine power out of love and benevolence but out of commercial necessity. We were created by the medical and scientific process of cloning. The biblical description of the creation of Eve supports such an hypothesis. The description of her creation is much the same as the procedures being used by our doctors and scientists today to create duplicates and modified alternation of many different species of life, among them man himself.
The leader and the authority by which man came into being was the individual identified by Jehovah as the Lord God, and by Mellchizedek, king and high priest of Salem, as the Most High God. To be the most high god indicates that there must have been lessor beings also identified as gods. One of those lessor beings was Jehovah one of the subordinates of the Lord God. He is identified in scripture as YHWH, Yahweh, Ishi, Baali and Jehovah.
Jehovah assumed the title of a god when he convinced Abraham to follow him. He did not become a god until he lead the Hebrews into the Sinai wilderness.
Gods need worshipers, temples, priests sacrificial offerings, gifts and a land to call one's own. Jehovah had none of these things until he was able to have Moses lead the Hebrews into the Sinai wilderness. This was his first step in establishing his dynasty. Once he had the congregation under his control he had taken the first step towards his ambition, he had worshipers. Next he ordained the tribe of Levi as the priests who would wait on and serve him. Through Moses the people were given the laws by which they were to abide. Every deviation from any prescribed law was described a sin and each offence required a specific gift or sacrifice as an atonement for that sin. Specific rituals were established and had to be performed before these gifts and sacrifice were considered as acceptable to Jehovah.
The people had no permanent land on which to erect a temple to Jehovah so they were ordered to construct and erect portable temple, called a tabernacle, which could be dissembled and moved at the wishes of God and Moses. Once the tabernacle, the abode of Jehovah was completed, he had Moses and the priests drafted every able bodied male within a certain age group and began to train them in the art of war. When these young men were considered trained and skilled enough to do battle Jehovah and Moses began their march to Canaan and history. Jehovah became a god to be feared. He finally had a land upon which his temple could be built and the Israelites had a land of their own. Both lasted only so long before the temple was destroyed and the people became slaves again.
In his quest to become a god, on and by his commands, the soldiers of Jehovah murdered, raped and mutilated countless thousands of men, women and children. Cities were plundered and burned to the ground. The wealth of the conquered nations filled the coffers of Jehovah, the house of Levi and the High Priest of the new religion. The soldiers of Jehovah had no mercy. They slaughtered everyone except young virgins. Those who were not kept by the men of the congregation for their lust and gratification were sold into slavery. It was thus that Jehovah, a flesh and blood being, an alien entity became a god, a religion was born and a new nation of people came into existence.
GOD the universal creator is an omnipotent incorporeal enigma who requires no worshipers, no sacrifices, temples or priests. It is complete within itself.
The Lord God, the creator of man, walked, talked, ate, drank and worked with man. He knew the cool of the evening, made mistakes and was afraid of his own creation.
When he departed the earth and returned to his home world, he divided the section of the earth under his authority to those of his crew he left behind. To Jehovah he left Jacob and his descendants. To the other lessor gods he left in their care the slaves who were under their command and control in the beginning. The crew he elected to leave behind were the lessor gods who had fraternized with the human women and who had produced children as a result of those encounters. It was their punishment for letting their lust overcome their racial pride and allowed them to mingle with lessor beings.
The lessor gods were the instructors of man. They taught him to grow food, prepare and serve that food to the gods. He was taught to herd sheep and cattle, make and play musical instrument, mine, smelt ore and work in metals.
The flood was not caused by the Lord God in order to destroy the wickedness of man. It was an event over which he had no control. But is was an event he used as an excuse to eliminate the social problems which the intercourse between his crew and the women of earth had generated.
The forty days of continuous rains, the flooding, the change in weather patterns, hurricanes, typhoons, and earthquakes were caused by the approach and impact of a giant asteroid which hit the earth somewhere in the Atlantic west of African.
The Lord God knew that this collision was going to occur long before the actual event happened. When the asteroid first entered our solar system the Lord God was informed. Close observation and a determination of the size, velocity and trajectory of this solar mass indicated that there was a distinct possibly that would hit the earth. When this occurred all life on earth was in imminent danger of extinction.
