    [[[Ancient Jewish Seal From the Babylonian Exile Period

    Ancient Seal From Israel's First Temple Babylonian Exile Period Found In Jerusalem ... --Jerusalem Post]]]

    The "Crescent Moon" shown above the alter in this seal is the symbol of the chief Babylonian god "Sin"... which was also the chief god worshiped in ancient Arabia at the time of Mohammed ... the "Crescent Moon" still symbolizes the Arab-Islam moon-god re-named "Allah."

    A short excerpt from the article "ALLAH - The Moon God" . . . (Biblebelievers.org.au)

    "In Old Testament times, Nabonidus (555-539 BC), the last king of Babylon, built Tayma, Arabia as a center of Moon-god worship. Segall stated, "South Arabia's stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations." Many scholars have also noticed that the Moon-god's name "Sin" is a part of such Arabic words as "Sinai," the "wilderness of Sin," etc. When the popularity of the Moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained true to their conviction that the Moon-god was the greatest of all gods. While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god.

    This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism. In 1944, G. Caton Thompson revealed in her book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha, that she had uncovered a temple of the Moon-god in southern Arabia. The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the name Sin were found in this temple. An idol which may be the Moon-god himself was also discovered. This was later confirmed by other well-known archeologists. The evidence reveals that the temple of the Moon-god was active even in the Christian era. Evidence gathered from both North and South Arabia demonstrate that Moon-god worship was clearly active even in Muhammad's day and was still the dominant cult. According to numerous inscriptions, while the name of the Moon-god was Sin, his title was al- ilah, i.e. "the deity," meaning that he was the chief or high god among the gods. As Coon pointed out, "The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God." The Moon-god was called al- ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad's father and uncle had Allah as part of their names . . ."

    Serious Warning From The Bible . . .

    "If there is found among you, within any of your gates which the LORD your God gives you, a man or a woman who has been wicked in the sight of the LORD your God, in transgressing His Covenant, who has gone and served other gods and worshipped them, either the sun or MOON or any of the host of heaven (stars) which I (God) have not commanded ..." (Serious stuff ... the next verses warn this "abomination" is worthy of death!) (Deuteronomy 17:2-5)
