Its one for the dagon two for the ho, three to get ready and go fish go!
Don't step on - step on my fish god hat, you can do anything but get off of my fish god hat. .... .....
In Ugaritic, the root dgn also means grain: in Hebrew dāgān, Samaritan dīgan, is an archaic word for grain. The Phoenician author Sanchuniathon also says Dagon means siton, that being the Greek word for grain. Sanchuniathon further explains: "And Dagon, after he discovered grain and the plough, was called Zeus Arotrios." The word arotrios means "ploughman", "pertaining to agriculture" (confer ἄροτρον "plow"). It is perhaps related to the Middle Hebrew and Jewish Aramaic word dgnʾ 'be cut open' or to Arabic dagn (دجن) 'rain-(cloud)'. The theory relating the name to Hebrew dāg/dâg, 'fish', based solely upon a reading of 1 Samuel 5:2–7 is discussed in Fish-god tradition below. According to this etymology: Middle English Dagon < Late Latin (Ec.) Dagon < Late Greek (Ec.) Δάγων < Heb dāgān, "grain (hence the god of agriculture), corn
Dagon was originally an Assyro-Babylonian fertility god who evolved into a major northwest Semitic god, reportedly of grain (as symbol of fertility) and fish and/or fishing (as symbol of multiplying).
Usually, when we hear or read something new,
we just compare it to our own ideas.
If it is the same, we accept it and say that it is correct.
If it is not, we say it is incorrect.
In either case, we learn nothing.

I think that the Paul Was Replaced reality has been discussed online for almost 10 years and most, if not all of those who took part in the discussion in the early days of the 60 IF document, and the different forums that had been active 8 o r9 years ago has become a vast wasteland.
I can think of three forums that have just about dried up because it's such a heavy discussion, it's a harsh reality and so many have backed away from fighting it or standing up for it.
Those who were alive at the time of the Beatles have to look at what was presented to them was an illusion. What we had been given as "reality" was not real but staged. It's not easy realizing the world that you grew up in was not what we were taught.
You wear out trying to show younger generations what was, and what is...and the young people are given all these images and they don't know what to make of it. Much like most of us who are about 50, try to figure out what life was like during the depression, we got images from what those who did live through it, but we just look at what was shown to us.
A sad indication when you present ideas and there is little or no response...you begin to withdraw from the scene and stop posting. It dries up.
