Ba’al-He ain’t just a Goa’uld from Stargate

On Thursday February 2, Glenn Beck had Rabbi Daniel Lapin on about Ba’al from the Old Testament. The Rabbi discussed how this god from the bible is now worshipped unknowingly by many people. After watching this show, I had to write about this and the Goa’uld System Lord from the same name of Stargate Fandom of and what connections I may suggest.

Those who haven’t watched the Television show Stargate-SG1, or its successor series, and Movies, Goa’ulds are alien symbiotes which use human bodies to set themselves as gods throughout the Galaxy. The Goa’ulds ruling over humans who were sent to different planets, ruling with an iron fist, until the Humans from Earth come and save the day.
Now back to today’s Glenn Beck Program. The Rabbi talked about the Ba’al of the bible who is a god of nature, fertility, filth, and violence. That would make Ba’al in today’s society, the god of the Occupy Wall Street, the culture of death portrayed by the mainstream media, Muslim Extremists, and The Environmental Movement. Ba’al is worshipped today by sexual promiscuity by our youth; the dehumanization of man; the glorification of sex and violence on TV and film; and the further degradation of women and men by pornography.
Ba’al on Stargate-SG1 is similar to the one of the Bible; he is as ever sneaky as the one worshiped in reality. He is worshipped by people kept dumbed down, by himself. The Ba’al of the Bible is worshipped by people who are equally brainwashed by today’s schools and colleges. Ba’al of Stargate has no whims over using violence to keep control over his kingdom, and fights with other ‘gods’ to do so. Today, The Biblical Ba’al’s followers try to stop those who worship the God of Abraham, Issac, and Moses from having any sway over society by having a monopoly of all media, education, and faith. Both have fanatical followers who do His every whim. On Stargate, they are the brainwashed fanatical Jaffa, while the Ba’al in reality has OWS, Muslim Brotherhood, Environmentalists, Union Thugs, etc…

In the Bible, there are actually multiple Ba’als or in Hebrew, Ba’alim for nations surrounding Israel who worship him. In Stargate, Ba’al clones his body and his Goa’uld symbiote multiple times so he can be in different places at once.
Finally, In Stargate fandom, The good guys from Earth finally defeat all the Ba’alim and save the world.
In the Bible, Ba’al is fought by The God of Abraham and his followers in the constant fight of good versus evil, but Ba’al always waits in the background for Humanity to worship him again like today. My hope is that we become a moral nation again and defeat Ba’al, like on Television.
