The the book of Deuteronomy 4:10 in the Hebrew Bible Torah of laws states, "Gather my [the Lord thy God] the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days of their lives and that may teach the children [the same fear]. Now we know through research of Bible scholars these words attributed to Moses is highly contested since numerous lands tell of a their prophets coming down fro mountain top experience after talking to "God." These rules were used to keep civilized law and order. This and many other tales of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian New Testament were plagierized from earlier cultures. Just like the Red Sea parting is found in myths of many nations, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Indian Ocean. Noah and his ark in a flood is a common worldwide theme since floods are frequent tragedies on Earth that is mostly made of water increased by nature's raging storms. In more recent years at least the remains of one ancient ark was found on Mount Arafat built for later-day people to visit in their homages to this area, a mythological ark to make them feel good.
So why should we fear any good god or goddess. And what happened to all these former global deities?
