The Moses Myth & Noah's example.

In your referring to Moses as myth based upon previous myths, this is a strange kind of thinking...for who is to say that Akenhaten was not the myth-psuedoname and Moses the real man? I have found repeatedly that all cultures appply different names, but all can be traced back to one authentic event. For example, consider Noah, for whom I can find perhaps 15 different names and titles:

In the Babylonian epic of Gilgamesh, which are older than the Genesis version, a king embarked on a journey to find the secret of immortality. Along the way, he met Utnapishtim, survivor of a great flood sent by the gods. Warned by Enki, the water god, Utnapishtim built a boat and saved his family and friends, along with artisans, animals, and precious metals. In the Hindu legend, we find the fish-god, who represents Poseidon, father of Atlantis, helping Manu over the Mountain of the North. In the Chaldean legend, it was not rains that caused the flood; but the terrible water-spout which rose to the sky, and of the enormous volumes of water issuing from the earth. (sounds very much like Bob Ballard's description of how the Black Sea was recently formed) Khasisatras (Noahs) vessel is stopped by the Mountain of Nazir until the sea goes down. (Atlantis: The Antediluvian World by Ignatius Donnelly).
As King Zi-a-Sudra of Shurpak (Sumer) Noahs name can also be recognized as the root word for Ziasudra, Zarathustra, Zoroaster, and these are all derived from the root words Esther-Ishtar-Ashur, meaning star or light. It is used as a title, not a proper name. So the prophet Zoroaster, who founded a religion of the same name, was neither the first nor the only Zoroaster.

The name Sumer is from the Hebrew word M-R (Hebrew words lack vowels, which are implied but not inserted) but M-R has two other historical applications, one as the ancient Hebrew name describing the Egyptian Pyramids, and the other as Mount Meru (Su-meru) associated with Shangri-La in the Himalayas. Theopompus, the historian, tells us the people who inhabited Atlantis were from Meru (Merou), and he places the destruction of Atlantis at about 9,000 BCE. The legends of Shangri-La can be traced back nearly 12,000 years, and this marks the turning point in all the worlds religions, traditions, and literature as well. So when looking for the historical Shambhalla or Shangri-La, where should we look? East or West?

This also marks the appearance of the magi, who are also Druids to the western mind. Yet they cannot be identified as a nation or a family or tribe, but as a highly organized small bands or groups who were traveling the world and appearing everywhere, disseminating the same information worldwide. The world was becoming linked through certain languages and technical skills all at the same time, being led by the members of this one distinctive and unique family.

The ancient Greeks and Romans knew more about Noah than they knew about David or Moses. To the Greeks, Noah was also associated with the son of Poseidon (Neptune) who carried the three-pronged trident, just as it appears in India. The Druids, the magi, nagas, and neelas, known from Egypt to Kashmir, were all associated with these Phoenician Sea Kings. The first King of Kashmir was Kashyshaya/Kashisatra. Its the same word as the Biblical Chaldean, home of Abraham, from the land of Ur of the Chaldeees-Culdees. The name Caledonia once referred to Scotland and Ireland, and is linked to the word Chaldees. Yet another name for Noah was Kai Vishtasp (Kashyshaya) who was the first King of what is now ancient Persia. And who was Kashyshaya but Noah! Another name (the Greek version) for Kashisatra was Xisutbros/Xisuthros (variation of Ziasudra). I can find hald a dozen more names for Noah among histories of different nations. Does this make Noah a myth like Moses? Further, since when does mankind build actual graves for "myths"?? There are actual graves for Noah and for Moses. Just wondering.
