How do Abrahamic worshippers (christians, muslims, jews) explain the Epic of Gilgamesh?

Written 1000 years before the story of Noah's ark was written in the torah, there are many similarities. How do you respond to someone who says the jews stole this story for their torah?

Jesus name is in greek Iesus. It comes into English as either Jesus or Joshua. It comes from Hebrew Yhush (Yah Saves), from son of Nun, first of that name. It's variation of Hush (Salvation).
Jupiter means Iovis Pater, and both him and Zeus trace back to Deus Pater, Sky Father of Indo-Europeans.
Christ comes from Christos which comes from Chrio, rubbed with oil. Calque of Hebrew Mesiah, atoined one.
Krishna means black.

That's just an unfortunate by product of aging. You become so set in your routines and habits that they become your default, since you've been with them for so long. It's at least understandable.

Not as excusable when it's someone young, though.

" “As the Prime Minister has said, no one will tell Jews where they may or may not live on the historic territory of their existence as a sovereign people. He is willing to make painful sacrifices for peace, even if that means giving up part of our biblical homeland in Judea and Samaria. But then you have to expect us to exercise our historical rights somewhere else. We decided this will be on the shores of the Black Sea, where we were an autochthonous people for more than 2000 years. Even the great non-Zionist historian Simon Dubnow said we had the right to colonize Crimea. It’s in all the history books. You can look it up.” "

>In 2012, Israeli researcher Eran Elhaik published a study claiming to prove that Khazar ancestry is the single largest element in the Ashkenazi gene pool. Sand declared himself vindicated, and progressive organs such as Haaretz and The Forward trumpeted the results.

>If the initial transfer works, other West Bank settlers would be encouraged to relocate to Ukraine, as well. After Ukraine, bolstered by this support, reestablishes control over all its territory, the current Autonomous Republic of Crimea would once again become an autonomous Jewish domain.

"Israel seems finally to have thrown in the towel. A blue-ribbon team of scholars from leading research institutions and museums has just issued a secret report to the government, acknowledging that European Jews are in fact Khazars. (Whether this would result in yet another proposal to revise the words to “Hatikvah” remains to be seen.) At first sight, this would seem to be the worst possible news, given the Prime Minister’s relentless insistence on the need for Palestinian recognition of Israel as a “Jewish state” and the stagnation of the peace talks. ... An aide quipped, when life hands you an etrog, you build a sukkah."

No such thing.

When will the Celt meme die? No one speaks a "Celtic" language. There are no Celtic genetics. The "Celtic" countries are just Germanics larping as a fake people made up in the 19th century.

"Among finds that probably had religious significance, objects of Celtic origin dominate, and the mythological motifs found in many cases have clear connections to the Mediterranean region or Celtic culture. Based on archaeological evidence alone, it is nearly impossible to distinguish early Germans from Celts according to historian Malcolm Todd.[59]"

Why do you retards treat animism like a monolithic thing? There are literally thousands of variants of animism. To my understanding animism is any protoreligion where batshit crazy things are done for spirits or magic animals.

Languages with a more complex case system tend to have more flexible word orders. EG in Russian you could say
я тeбя люблю
тeбя люблю я
люблю я тeбя
or any other number of permutations of that and it would still be grammatically correct. What matters is that the verb is conjugated to the subject and the direct object is in the correct declension.
If you're only interested in learning useful things you're on the wrong board, my man.
I'm all for learning dead languages/learning for the sake of learning. I just think that there are languages out there which you can use to read things that haven't and most likely won't ever be translated into english.
And if you're at all interested in the academy it wouldn't hurt to know a couple of languages that are in relatively short supply.

You can't read Vergil's poetry in english, or really appreciate Cicero's eloquence. Learning latin is a big help learning the half of europe's languages that are descended from it and are basically all just simplified pidgin versions of it that exchanged inflection for word order.
And frankly if you wanna get in to academic linguistics just save yourself the pain and apply to starbucks now.

People who tried to organize rebellions against Ashurnasirpal ii were flayed alive and had their skins put on display as punishment. I'd say that's a pretty effective deterrent.

If Islam is for the whole planet worldwide why do Arabs/Persians still find it unusual when they see an American or European born white Muslim? I've seen several Youtube vlogs where some clean-cut white male middle class convert from America or Holland or Germany or somewhere will visit Saudi and Iran or Egypt and when he walks around the streets and to look at the architecture and the landmarks and talks to the people and tells them he is a Muslim they look shocked and everyone stares at the white guy who's just claimed he's Muslim like he's an alien that arrived in from another planet. Of course they are happy for him and very welcoming to him and courteous but they have a look like they are so surprised that this white American/Euro tourist is actually a Muslim.

If Islam is meant for the whole of humanity why does this kind of shocked reaction take place in Islamic lands when a white Muslim convert is detected?

Abrahamism is not a European superstition. Islam is just as 'white' as the faith forced upon Europeans by the Greek king Constantine. In fact more so, because there are a ton of Persian and Aryan Muslims.
They willingly betrayed their own people to convert to the religion of the Arabs. The muslim part of them will like that, but the human part of them will, at a subconscious level, look down upon them as lowly traitors.
I see nothing wrong with this anymore
I used to hate mudshits but now I see they're right

Except, you know, the fact that Christianity and European identity have been intertwined for millennia, but okay fucknut.
I'm sure women will respect you a lot more when you cuck out to an invading religion. Lmao... so pathetic.
