Then there is the absolute proof (already well posted) that these gods never existed as claimed at all,
Literalism promotes the book has certain characteristics that point to real events being covered in the various passages that point to a literal history. The other parts are prophecies, some have been fulfilled in the times covered and the last words were written about 100AD.
There is no link so you will have to suffer through my post. The collective tends to say they don't even read them but know they are error filled. It won't take long to see if that is the route you will take. If a question pops up as you are reading it might be wiser to get an explanation before going any further.
How many people get 'un-lost' by moving forward once they are lost?
Part of square 1 is promoting there is one set of texts that are better than all of the others. If you do not use the Greek NT and the Hebrew OT you will find it to be hopeless as far as being able to see it as a single work. God in Ge:1:1 is the same God in Re:21 and as the father figure to Jesus in the Gospel. He is also the one John the Baptist is referencing in John:1:1.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ,
which God gave unto him,
to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;
and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
Part of square 1 is making yourself part of the group the whole book was meant for and rather than thinking like an ancient the text is to be read as if it was in the news today and the descriptions are vivid, as vivid as any modern video in a lot of cases.
Since the whole book needs to be covered using that parameter some OT text that we say was understandable to them and that makes it a mystery to us is not the way it actually works.
This is a possible starting point to show that we can understand the book as fast as we can read certain verses. A literal history.
And the flood was forty days upon the earth;
and the waters increased,
and bare up the ark,
and it was lift up above the earth.
And the waters prevailed,
and were increased greatly upon the earth;
and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth;
and all the high hills,
that were under the whole heaven,
Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail;
and the mountains were covered.
Our generation has access to a modern globe, to get 22.5ft of water on the dry land the water evaporated from the ocean would lower it by just over 5ft. The rest of the math is just as easy, such as 6" of rain fell every 24 hours. To a desert dweller snow wound never have been seen yet we have lots of pics of snow on the tops of high hill and it takes 5 months for it to melt. That could be used to cover Sumeria and the gods they believed in.
This next one is a bit more difficult, the water parting by Moses was where the south end of the Bittern lakes was pushed into the bigger body by a strong wing and Moses crossed on damp sand. the water coming back would have been like a modern day flash flood in any desert.
The verse is a summation of the moves that can be plotted on the map that suggests Moses went directly south and on the west side of the lake while the soldiers used the roads and were waiting for Moses to come out on that road.
Speak unto the children of Israel,
that they turn and encamp before Pi-hahiroth,
between Migdol and the sea,
over against Baal-zephon:
before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
