God and the Sabbath- ruled by the Sumerian gods
The Hebrews set forth as one of their commandments that we should observe the Sabbath and not work on this day. Where did the Hebrews get their concept of days of the week?

From the Sumerians of course, the ordering of the days of the week goes back to the dawn of civilization, they have the recognition of days, months, years, hours and seconds going back to Sumer to at least 3800 B.C. This was more than 2500 years before the Hebrews even considered themselves to be a distinct people.

Think about this, their god commanded them to rest on a day of the week derived from the Sumerian's concept of time!

That means that their god's anger and concept of sin was derived from the Sumerians!

Who's your daddy YHWH? That's right, the Sumerians, they instructed YHWH when to make it an offense against him if the Hebrews worked on a certain day that the Sumerians invented!

An interesting video that shows why the Sumerians had a day of rest based from their myths:

Another great example of the Hitchens phrase: religions are plagiarisms of plagiarisms of plagiarisms. Unfortunately, you'll never convince a xtian that xtians plagiarized the sabath from the Jews who plagiarized it from the Sumerians.

Video is not the correct medium for walls of text. I gather it is rehashing some of the following:

http://www.bibleorigins.net/ShabbatShapattu.html
?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

The Sabbath was established at the creation before either the Hebrew or Sumerian nations existed. The fact that the Hebrews aren't the only ones who had this practice doesn't prove it wasn't originally given by God.

A belief that is found in more than one religion doesn't mean that one copied it from the other; it could indicate that both received this information from the same source. For example, the belief that there was once a world wide flood is found in in the histories of many cultures all over the world. This supports the truth of the Bible. A story like this couldn't be found in so many places and among so many different people unless it actually occurred.

The information in ancient libraries came from real minds of real people. The far more complex information in cells came from the far more intelligent mind of God.

You're still a shithead, Theo.

Put down your fucking bible and grow up.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Wow you are extremely dense to believe that a Sumerian myth that predates all Hebrew tradition by over 2,000 years somehow lends credence to a Hebrew god concept that plagiarizes from the much earlier myth.

There is solid historical evidence that the division of days of the week began with the Sumerians, you have ZERO evidence that the 7 days of the week somehow started with Hebrew mythology, this is basic stuff here. The very reason that a week had seven days and not 5 or 10 or 8 was because it was a Sumerian chronology that the Hebrews used to write their Genesis myth, as far as the Genesis myth goes, the Hebrews plagiarized every bit of it from the Babylonians.

Enjoy your cognitive dissonance, but I think most people would be embarrassed by the disconnect from reality you just displayed.

But other things do. Yahweh originated as the 70th son of El Eyon (from the Sumerian/Babylonian pantheon). That fact, along with all the other imported syncretic elements of the Bible do add up to proof they borrowed from their surrounding cultures. (BTW, there was no world-wide flood ... that has been completely debunked). As suggested elsewhere, you really should grow up.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.
