Just want to remind our users at #QOTO that Advertising is the one of the only things that'll get you instantly banned here. I've had a lot of advertisers come through, so, fair warning! If I see it, you're on your way out the door!
Love Dave, one of your friendly Mods. <3
I've been reading up on ancient Canaanite religion recently, and it is a very interesting subject. Particularly when you look at it as the precursor religion to what would eventually become Judaism.
A lot of the god names are maintained in Hebrew- which is, itself, a Canaanite language- the only living (Although you could say resurrected) Canaanite language. Yam (long A, Yaam) for instance is one that is super easy to spot because the word, in Hebrew, for ocean is still yam.
It's a very interesting thing to study for me, as a Jewish person and a secular Zionist who ascribes to the notion that the Jewish people are the aboriginal people to the region of the world I've chosen to make my home.
However, from a history standpoint it's particularly interesting to see where my culture and the religion associated with said culture came from and evolved from.
@freemo Hi, Freemo! Great to be here, thank you.
#introduction I'm just a dude living a life in Tel Aviv. I'm no expert when it comes to STEM, and certainly not professionally educated in any such field but I am certainly a fan.
Outside of my interest in general knowledge, I'm into gaming, table top role playing, and have been a member of the telnet based Mu* (Mush/Mud/Mux) online Roleplaying communities for just about two decades now.
I'm big into discussing different topcs, always happy to learn something new, and share my own personal experiences and knowledge with any and everyone.
Just wanted everyone to know that effective immediately I'll be stepping down as a Mod at QOTO.
I'm really just not enjoying it, and I've found I'd much rather be on Fedi doing silly stuff.
Qoto is my first instance, and I've always liked it here. I hope everyone continues to love QOTO and the community continues to grow.
So long, and thanks for all the Fish. :)
