When Nimrod died, the Babylonian mystery religion in which he figured prominently continued on. His wife Queen Semiramis saw to that. Nimrod was also said to be born of Queen Semiramis. So Nimrod was both son and husband of Queen Semiramis. Once he was dead, she deified him as the Sun-god. In various cultures he later became known as Baal, the Great Life Giver, the god of fire, Baalim, Bel, Molech, etc.

Semiramis became the goddess of the moon, fertility, etc.

I think the owl is Semiramis ... The fire is Molech
There never was a goddess called Semiramis. Nimrod is a figure from Hebrew mythology and there was no Babylonian Mystery religion. Get your facts right and do your research instead of just parrotting other people's misguided ideas. Have you been reading His-slop?

Is it a bit solipsistic in here or is it just me?
